Journalist Abby Martin has revealed that she was blocked from delivering a keynote speech at Georgia Southern University for refusing to "sign a contractual pledge to not boycott Israel" to comply with Georgia's anti-Boycott, Divest and Sanctions law.

"After I was scheduled to give keynote speech at an upcoming @GeorgiaSouthern conference, organizers said I must comply with Georgia's anti-BDS law and sign a contractual pledge to not boycott Israel," Martin said Friday on Twitter. "I refused and my talk was canceled. The event fell apart after colleagues supported me."

President Trump in early December gave a speech at Sheldon Adelson's Israeli American Council on Dec 7 insisting Americans must "love Israel."

Days later, he signed an executive order to punish critics of Israel on college campuses.

Incidentally, around three weeks later the Trump administration worked with Israeli intelligence to assassinate Israel's number one enemy, Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani and tried but failed to assassinate another top figure of Iran's Quds Force while he was in Yemen, Abdul Reza Shahlai.

What's next?

Courts across America have ruled repeatedly that anti-BDS laws are blatantly unconstitutional and clear violations of the First Amendment but such laws are being passed and enforced throughout the country -- First Amendment be damned.
