Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY) called out his colleagues in Congress on Saturday for trying to pass hate speech laws to outlaw criticism of Israel.

“Some of my colleagues are introducing legislation to create federally sanctioned ‘antisemitism monitors’ at colleges,” Massie said. “I’ll vote No.”

“Policing speech, religion, and assembly is not the role of the federal government. In fact it’s expressly prohibited by the U.S. Constitution,” he added.

“There’s a bipartisan effort in Congress to equate criticism of the secular state of Israel to violence toward Jewish people in America,” Massie said in a follow-up tweet. “The latter is illegal and the former is protected speech, but if a false equivalency is established, it will be forbidden to criticize Israel.”

Axios reported on Friday that a bipartisan pair of AIPAC-funded congressmen, Reps. Ritchie Torres (D-NY) and Mike Lawler (R-NY), plan to “introduce legislation creating federally sanctioned ‘antisemitism monitors’ for select college campuses.”
