Statement on Not On Our Dime Act Rally

“At a time of rising antisemitism, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is wrong to support a bill that would single out and target only Jewish charities. The Not On Our Dime act is an attempt by the DSA far left to force the New York legal system to dictate to private Jewish charities.

It’s unconstitutional—and it’s unconscionable.

This bogus bill, which is extremely vague, would force Jewish charities to quadruple check every penny and every cause related to Israel, tie up their time, cast suspicion on all their work, and stifle critical dollars dedicated to meaningful causes in Israel and the United States, from education to anti-poverty efforts.

The DSA’s message to Jews is clear: supporting Israel is unacceptable on a political level and is demanded on a personal level.

Whether extremist DSA politicians like it or not, scapegoating Jews to prove your fringe bona fides remains an unseemly and disgusting tactic that erases any credibility. Supporting this antisemitic and unconstitutional state-level nonsensical legislation proves that AOC is using the Jewish community as a convenient punching bag to deflect from internal criticism and lock up her re-endorsement from the DSA.  

It’s despicable to see the continued normalization by elected officials of antisemitism in New York, home to the world’s largest Jewish population outside of Israel.”
