Johnson’s Pro Islam/Anti-Semitism Bill

by: Tom Renz May 04, 2024



Let me begin by stating clearly that I support all people’s right to believe as they choose and without fear or intimidation. I’m a proud Christian but love and respect my brothers and sisters that believe in freedom whether they be Christian, Muslim, Jew, Buddhist, Hindu, whatever. You believe how you want, just don’t tell me what to believe. That said, the “good Christian” speaker Mike Johnson just pushed another anti-American bill, under the false guise of stopping antisemitism, that will allow crooked administrations like Biden’s, as much authority to promote Islam as to stop antisemitism. That’s right – the antisemitism bill is also a pro-Islam bill… bet you haven’t heard that yet.

I’m not going to get into great detail on this but here’s what crooked sellout Johnson and his Democrat buddies did. The “antisemitism bill” is [found at] in its entirety:

Let me draw your attention to Section 2 Part 3 which states:

(3) Both the Department of Justice and the Department of Education have properly concluded that title VI prohibits discrimination against Jews, Muslims, Sikhs, and members of other religious groups when the discrimination is based on the group’s actual or perceived shared ancestry or ethnic characteristics or when the discrimination is based on actual or perceived citizenship or residence in a country whose residents share a dominant religion or a distinct religious identity.

You will note that this part of the law references Title VI and discrimination against “Jews, Muslims, Sikhs, and other members of religious groups…”. Title VI is about racial discrimination but this law is about the Jewish faith right? Well this deserves some explanation. This is what the DOJ says about Title VI:

Title VI, 42 U.S.C. § 2000d et seq., was enacted as part of the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964. It prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, and national origin in programs and activities receiving federal financial assistance. As President John F. Kennedy said in 1963:

Simple justice requires that public funds, to which all taxpayers of all races [colors, and national origins] contribute, not be spent in any fashion which encourages, entrenches, subsidizes or results in racial [color or national origin] discrimination.

If a recipient of federal assistance is found to have discriminated and voluntary compliance cannot be achieved, the federal agency providing the assistance should either initiate fund termination proceedings or refer the matter to the Department of Justice for appropriate legal action. Aggrieved individuals may file administrative complaints with the federal agency that provides funds to a recipient, or the individuals may file suit for appropriate relief in federal court. Title VI itself prohibits intentional discrimination. However, most funding agencies have regulations implementing Title VI that prohibit recipient practices that have the effect of discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin.

You can find this language here: So let me explain what has happened. Israel is predominantly Jewish and so the courts have essentially held over time that because of the overlap between race and religion, Title VI sorta/kinda extends to “actual or perceived” identity based on this. In other words if you are discriminating against someone because they are Jewish it may also be a Title VI issue. The problem is that this approach could also apply towards just about any religion because many countries are predominantly one religion or another and predominantly one race or another. Further, this bill specifically includes Muslims and Sikhs indicating Congress’s intent to extend the same protection to Muslims and Sikhs as Jews. 

To be clear I do not think anyone should be discriminated against based on their religion as long as it is not interfering with another person’s but this law seems to carve out special protections for Jews, Muslims and Sikhs while ignoring all other religions – including Christians. It seems like the clear Congressional intent is to provide additional protections for those religions over all others which is facially unconstitutional. This farce of a law is being passed based on fake riots funded by nefarious actors (please don’t act like these are natural when all the “protesters” have identical tents and most of them don’t even know what they are protesting). It is not even close to a good-faith effort to deal with a real problem – but rather, is using a manufactured “crisis” to push unconstitutional legislation that is going to damage free speech, discriminate based on religion, and accomplish NOTHING related to preventing antisemitism. 

To be clear – this unconstitutional law is nothing more than a pretense for further illegal discrimination based on religion and more attacks on free speech. 

One last point. I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge the Congressional intention to delegate critical interpretive power as to the meaning of anti-Semitism to a non-governmental organization – the IHRA. This is an appalling and likely illegal delegation of power that will have a substantial legal impact to a completely unaccountable and unelected non-governmental entity. It’s bad enough Congress continually gives its power to unaccountable bureaucrats – now they want to give it to a group that isn’t even part of the government… great idea RINOs.

If Mike Johnson and the RINOs want to prevent antisemitism perhaps they should quit sending American money to Ukraine – a nation that, according to the New York Times and Reuters, allows Nazis to openly serve in its military. Why do we need another law for this anyways? Isn’t discrimination already prohibited on college campuses? Maybe Johnson should consider doing something constitutional and legal like withholding funding for colleges that are promoting or allowing already illegal or un-American activities? No, that would not make his BFF Biden or his democrat supporters happy. 

If Johnson wants to support Islam, the Sikhs or anyone else that is his prerogative but let’s not pretend this is something other than what it is – a pretense to allow the DOE to discriminate against anyone that is not Muslim, Jewish, or Sikh. It is unconstitutional, in my opinion, and a very clear example of why MTG and Massie are right in asking for the “good Christian” democrat wannabe Mike Johnson to step down. I personally would much rather see which Republicans would vote with Democrats to put a Democrat in the speaker seat so we can vote them out than to continue to allow these turncoats to hide behind the fake R behind their name. Party loyalty can NEVER come before principle or we have no party.
