Andrew Cuomo and Other Democrats Launch Severe Attack on Free Speech to Protect Israel

Andrew Cuomo and Other Democrats Launch Severe Attack on Free Speech to Protect Israel:

But now, New York’s Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo (above, in 2016
Celebrate Israel Parade) has significantly escalated this free speech
attack on U.S. soil, aimed at U.S. citizens. The prince of the New York
political dynasty yesterday issued an executive order directing all agencies
under his control to terminate any and all business with companies or
organizations that support a boycott of Israel. It ensures that citizens
who hold and express a particular view are punished through the denial
of benefits which other citizens enjoy: a classic free speech violation
(imagine if Cuomo issued an order stating that “anyone who expresses
conservative viewpoints shall have all state benefits immediately
terminated”).


Even more disturbing, Cuomo’s Executive Order requires
that one of his Commissioners compile “a list of institutions and
companies” which – “either directly or through a parent or subsidiary” –
support a boycott. That government list is then posted publicly, and
the burden falls on them to prove to the state that they do not, in
fact, support such a boycott. Donna Lieberman, Executive Director of the
New York Civil Liberties Union, told The Intercept: “Whenever
the government creates a blacklist based on political views it raises
serious First Amendment concerns and this is no exception.” Reason‘s Robby Soave denounced it today as “brazenly autocratic.”
