House Passes Antisemitism Hate Speech Bill Curbing Free Speech


Last Updated on May 1, 2024

Free speech is coming to an end as Congress passes H.R. 6090, or the “Antisemitism Awareness Act of 2023,” a resolution for the federal government to put in stone an absolute definition of “antisemitism.”

The bill, introduced by US Rep. Mike Lawler (R-N.Y.) and cosponsored by several other representatives, including Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.), Max Miller (R-Ohio), Josh Gottheimer (D-N.J.), Jared Moskowitz (D-Fla.), Kean (R-N.J.), Shelia Jackson Lee (D-Texas), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.), David Kustoff (R-Tenn.), Donald Norcross (D-N.J.) and Shontel Brown (D-Ohio).

Additional cosponsors were announced, totaling 46 House Republicans and 15 Democrats, many of whom have been supported or financed by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

The bill targets “discrimination laws concerning education programs or activities and for other purposes.” So, there is a wide berth for the usage of this new “hate speech” legislation, but it seems to be geared towards the protests and rioting by pro-Palestine college students.

First, the bill calls for the cutting of federal funding for colleges that don’t follow the new amendments to the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The discrimination doesn’t need to be “actual” but can be “perceived.”

As noted in the U.S. National Strategy to Counter Antisemitism issued by the White House … it is critical to–

(A) increase awareness and understanding, including its threat to America;

(B) improve safety and security for Jewish communities;

(C) reverse the normalization of antisemitism and counter antisemitic discrimination; and

(D) expand communication and collaboration between communities.

The bill states that the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) working definition of antisemitism is “a vital tool which helps individuals understand and identify the various manifestations of antisemitism.” If the bill does indeed embrace such a definition, there will be no rebuttal to the “greatest ally” narrative or any rebuking of the State of Israel.

The IHRA’s working definition adds “context” to the meaning of “antisemitism.”

It goes on to remark that 2019’s Executive Order 13899 extended protections to Jews under the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and “tasked Federal agencies to consider the IHRA working definition of antisemitism when enforcing” the law. It then cites that in 2018, the Department of Education began using IHRA’s working definition. The legislators claim that this definition will grant a “whole-of-government-and-society approach” — almost like a joint effort to rid any suspected antisemitism.

The bill concludes by saying, “Nothing in this Act shall be construed to diminish or infringe upon any right protected under the First Amendment …” Yet, these politicians did not define “antisemitism” in the bill but put the burden on the IHRA’s working definition. This can easily misconstrue the law’s supposed purpose and breach First Amendment rights.

It should be noted that most of the 46 Republicans sponsoring the bill utilized the left-wing Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) Center on Extremism for leverage to push this bill. That’s rather odd since the ADL has been targeting White and Christian conservatives for over a decade, and yet these Republicans are now siding with the NGO.
