Is it actually illegal to fire people for unionizing? I mean I'd think any at-will employment allows firing for pretty much any reason, as long as it's not racism or what have you.In today's news, AOC decides to start a tweet war with Dave Portnoy aka Pres the founder of Barstool Sports over the topic

Now THIS is entertainment. Barstool Sports and Portnoy are a good foil to AOC. I follow some of their stuff, and
they are pretty funny and are not liked by the woke.
EDIT: One of their part timers, Frank the Tank responded and destroyed a replier with LOGIC AND REASON
For reference, Frank is the beloved jersey sped of the company, but even he see why a union doesn't make sense
I think it varies state-to-state. Some leftist strongholds probably do have laws stating that if your employees try to strongarm you you're forbidden to do anything but give them a thank-you blowjob, but of course that's only enforced if you're not in good with the Democrat establishment. If you are, like say Michael Moore, or Bernie Sanders, you can union-bust your employees regularly while bragging about how much you support unions and no one will say a word.Is it actually illegal to fire people for unionizing?

A new analysis of those who have given political contributions to socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's (D-NY) reelection campaign has reportedly found that only 10 contributors live inside her district.
"The FEC only requires that political campaigns disclose the names and addresses of individuals who contribute over $200 to their campaigns during an election," The Daily Caller News Foundation's Andrew Kerr reported. "The $1,525.50 Ocasio-Cortez received from her New York constituents represents less than 1% of her campaign's itemized contributions reported to the FEC in the first half of 2019."
While Ocasio-Cortez has outraised all other freshman representatives, the DCNF found that she falls significantly short of the average amount of money that freshman representatives have raised within their own districts.
"The average freshman representative's reelection campaign received $107,141.29 in itemized contributions from their constituents in the first half of 2019, FEC filings the DCNF analyzed show," Kerr writes. "Ocasio-Cortez's reported in-district fundraising haul of $1,525.50 was just 1.4% of that average."
Far-left Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) also rank near the bottom of the freshman class in terms of financial support they have received from their constituents.
The DCNF's report gives credence to recent polling from within Ocasio-Cortez's district, which found that Ocasio-Cortez is unpopular among her constituents. A door-to-door poll from Stop The AOC PAC found the following:
- They don't like her. She has a more than 2:1 ratio of unfavorable (50.88%) to favorable (21.37%) in public opinion.
- They don't trust her. Only 10.75% thought she had their best interests in mind in quashing the Amazon deal – 32.60% said she didn’t.
- They don't want her. 33.44% are ready to vote against her, and only 13.30% would vote for her.
Poor polling and fundraising from within her own district reinforces the notion that while Ocasio-Cortez has tremendous ability to influence the news cycle and to change what is being talked about it in U.S. politics, she does not seem to have that much political power within her own district.
Earlier this month, Tiffany Cabán, a far-left candidate for Queens D.A., who was backed heavily by Ocasio-Cortez, lost the race for the Democrat nomination to establishment favorite Melinda Katz.
"The pitched seven-week battle for the Democratic nomination for Queens district attorney finally ended on Tuesday, when Tiffany Cabán, whose bid galvanized progressive activists nationwide and exposed deep rifts within the left, conceded to Melinda Katz, the favorite of the state party's establishment," The New York Times reported. "The result was a vindication for the Queens Democratic Party, which was left reeling last year after the defeat of former Representative Joseph Crowley by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez."
In March, left-leaning Vox reported: "A Quinnipiac poll released on Thursday morning found that 23 percent of Americans had a favorable view of the member of Congress, while 36 percent had an unfavorable view — a -13 overall approval rating ... This new poll isn’t a one-off finding. Three prior surveys — one in January from Morning Consult, one in February from Fox, and a third in mid-March from Gallup — all found that more Americans had negative views of AOC than had positive ones."
I bet they’re just glad the vast majority of the country can’t pinpoint her district.
It's a federal law as far as I know. Since it's federal, I would assume that it only applies to large companies.I think it varies state-to-state.

JERUSALEM (AP) — The Latest on Israel’s decision to bar two U.S. Democratic congresswomen from visiting (all times local):
Israel’s deputy foreign minister says the government has decided to bar two U.S. Democratic congresswomen who support the international boycott movement from entering the country.
Tzipi Hotovely told Israel Radio in an interview Thursday that “Israel has decided not to allow” Reps. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota to visit as planned.
She says it is in keeping with a policy of denying entry to those who advocate boycotts of Israel.
Her remarks came shortly after President Donald Trump tweeted that “it would show great weakness” if Israel allowed them in.
The two newly-elected Muslim members of Congress are outspoken critics of Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians. Tlaib’s family immigrated to the United States from the West Bank.
President Donald Trump says Israel should bar two Democratic U.S. congresswomen from visiting the country.
Israel’s prime minister and other top officials were meeting to reevaluate the decision to allow Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan to visit next week. Both are outspoken critics of Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians and support a boycott of Israel.
Trump tweeted Thursday: “It would show great weakness if Israel allowed” the Americans to visit, claiming: “They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds.”
Trump has spent weeks now criticizing the members, including sending racist tweets.
The Israeli ambassador to the U.S., Ron Dermer, had said Israel would not deny entry to any member of Congress.
Israel’s prime minister is holding consultations with senior ministers and aides to reevaluate the decision to allow two Democratic Congresswomen to enter the country next week.
A government official said Thursday that Benjamin Netanyahu was holding consultations about the upcoming visit of Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and that “there is a possibility that Israel will not allow the visit in its current proposed format.” The official spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations.

The Latest: Israeli official: Tlaib, Omar barred from entry
JERUSALEM (AP) — The Latest on Israel's decision to bar two U.S. Democratic congresswomen from visiting (all times local): 7:15 p.m. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Israel "is...apnews.com
Netanyahu already gave a statement concerning the decision, too. It really does astound me that these people can spend all day and night harping on and on about how much they hate Israel while they support one boycott after the next against them, and then when the country tells them to fuck off they have the nerve to act surprised.Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu:
No country in the world respects America and the American Congress more than the State of Israel.
As a free and vibrant democracy, Israel is open to critics and criticism, with one exception: Israeli law prohibits the entry into Israel of those who call for and work to impose boycotts on Israel, as do other democracies that prohibit the entry of people who seek to harm the country.
In fact, in the past the US did this to an Israeli member of Knesset, as well as to other public figures from around the world.
Congresswomen Tlaib and Omar are leading activists in promoting the legislation of boycotts against Israel in the American Congress.
Only a few days ago, we received their itinerary for their visit in Israel, which revealed that they planned a visit whose sole objective is to strengthen the boycott against us and deny Israel’s legitimacy.
For instance: they listed the destination of their trip as Palestine and not Israel, and unlike all Democratic and Republican members of Congress who have visited Israel, they did not request to meet any Israeli officials, either from the government or the opposition.
A week ago, Israel warmly welcomed some 70 Democratic and Republican members of Congress, who expressed broad bipartisan support for Israel, which was also demonstrated a month ago in a resounding bipartisan vote against BDS in Congress.
However, the itinerary of the two Congresswomen reveals that the sole purpose of their visit is to harm Israel and increase incitement against it.
In addition, the organization that is funding their trip is Miftah, which is an avid supporter of BDS, and among whose members are those who have expressed support for terrorism against Israel.
Therefore, the minister of interior has decided not to allow their visit, and I, as prime minister, support his decision.
Nonetheless, if Congresswoman Tlaib submits a humanitarian request to visit her relatives, the minister of interior has announced that he will consider her request on the condition that she pledges not to act to promote boycotts against Israel during her visit.
Whatever, this is hilarious. Israel is our proxy for embarrassing these two obnoxious cunts. They might as well live up to their terrible muzzie-murdering reputation by providing some lulz.Surely the best way to show the world that Israel and the United States don’t have their hands down each other’s pants is to use the powers granted by the office of the President of the United States to enable an act of almost immeasurably childish pettiness.
It's times like these when I'm honestly glad that Israel is the US's greatest ally.Netanyahu already gave a statement concerning the decision, too. It really does astound me that these people can spend all day and night harping on and on about how much they hate Israel while they support one boycott after the next against them, and then when the country tells them to fuck off they have the nerve to act surprised.
