Boycott The Boycott Of The Boycott!
Some Americans claim that the USA has a special, enduring partnership with Israel, and that we should stand with the Israeli government no matter what. Others point out that the government is engaged in human rights abuses. To protest those human rights abuses, these people are engaging in boycotts of Israel.
U.S. Representative Brendan Boyle finds those boycotts of Israel intolerable. So, he has introduced H.R. 2645, a bill to compel the Thrift Savings Fund to divest from any company that participates in a boycott of Israel.
H.R. 2645 is a boycott of the boycott of Israel.
The Thrift Savings Fund is a savings plan for federal government employees. But what if some government employees don’t want their money to be used as an economic threat against companies considering joining in the boycott against Israel?
They can boycott the boycott of the boycott, by refusing to contribute money to the Thrift Savings Fund.
If you don’t like me suggesting this plan of action, well, I suppose you can protest this article by boycotting Irregular Times.
