MADISON, Wis. — Authored by Sen. Leah Vukmir, R-Brookfield, the Senate passed legislation prohibiting Wisconsin from contracting with any company participating in the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction movement against Israel.

“I am proud to have authored this bill standing with our friend and ally Israel,” Vukmir said. “The Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction movement is an anti-Semitic, anti-Israel campaign that promotes division.”

The legislation prohibits local municipalities from contracting with companies participating in a boycott of Israel and bans local municipalities from establishing their own rules and ordinances to boycott or divest from Israel.

“Wisconsin will not tolerate hateful initiatives aimed at harming our ally” Vukmir said. “This legislation further strengthens our bond with Israel, our strongest ally in the Middle East.”

    I don’t stand for apartheid or indiscriminate bombing and assassinations. Not from Israel. Not from the U.S. Vukmir does. That speaks volumes about her and her co-voters lack of ethics.

  2. Troll says:

    It seems Rita stands with Gwen Moore and Minister Louis Farrakhan. Any other Jew haters on the left that care to respond.

  3. PMD says:

    Right-wing nuts are such snowflakes about Israel. Even the mildest criticism means you are anti-Semitic. It’s behavior they mock liberals for all the time. Playing the anti-Semite card.

  4. Rita says:

    Troll, you have a brain and a mouth. You make the argument to convince me that makes it okay to wage wars on innocents in their lands, that makes it okay to take the land, water and resources of others and then call them the enemy, makes it okay to execute without trial, to invade without good reason, to remove groups from their homes, to have allies that are tyrants, to treat people like they are some kind of annoyance to shut away, to kill those who seek self defense? Are you something very special? Am I? Is the U.S. military? Is the Israeli military? Are the Palestinians? Is Gwen Moore? Is Louis Farrakhan? Which is so special to claim dominion over the others? Choose and convince me if you wish.
