    Lawsuits have been filed. The Federation says it won't sue the bus companies as they see it as individual boycott actions. But individuals can sue companies and individuals. Claims can be for Title 6 of the CRA '64 and Federal Transit Law. Discussion below:

Had those same drivers been tasked with taking busloads of Jews to a casino outing in Atlantic City, they'd have probably been on the road as planned. Think about it. How many instances of busloads of Jews being stranded on their way to the Grand Canyon or Las Vegas or any other place do we hear about? The difference here lies in the destination and the protest going on there; that most or even all of the passengers in this case were Jews is incidental.
    Their destination is none of the driver's business. Their business is to drive a bus.

    Come on, Carl. You had to know that was dumb before you even posted it. We're talking about whether these particular Jews were victims of anti-Semitism in this instance - not whether Jews have historically been victims of discrimination and worse. There's no way you could have read my post, in the context of this thread, and thought that I was saying what you suggested I was saying.

    Their business or not, they obviously knew about it, and the fact that their would-be passengers would be going to a rally for a cause that they apparently had a problem with is why the drivers did what they did. Not because the passengers were Jewish.

    As well as concern for the safety of their passengers.

    You're certainly not the first to sneer at the 'Jews as victim's' trope. I stand by my post.

    So you are in favor of preventing free speech from certain types of law abiding persons (we won't say Jews as many may not have been) as good progressives I take it?

    Please continue......
