Yesterday, Senate Democrats blocked SR1 for the second time, which contains the controversial Combating BDS Act, and which infringes on First Amendment rights to freedom of speech and peaceful protest, including boycotts.

Only four Senate Democrats voted to pass the bill, including Doug Jones, Kyrsten Sinema, Bob Menéndez, and Joe Manchin. If you live in Alabama, Arizona, New Jersey or West Virginia, please consider calling your senators and asking them to stand up for your First Amendment rights and focus on reopening the government rather than penalizing peaceful protesters.

  1. I hadn’t noticed that they had taken a second vote on the bill, so thanks for the heads up. Do you know if McConnell filed cloture again? Is he allowed to?

    1. Unfortunately, yes — he immediately filed cloture again after the second vote and it could come back to the floor again as early as next week.

      1. He won’t give up. The calculus has to change, and I don’t know what it’ll take to move that man.
