Now They Want Satire Banned! By Chris Knight
Here is a story about banning and oppression taken to comic levels, as a US Democrat Senator, who wears ridiculous cowboy hats wants to ban people satirising .. well … politicians who wear dumb hats. No sense of humour in these people, that is for sure, and even their professional comics are as boring as dust:
“One Florida Democrat is proving just how far government officials are willing to go to squash free speech. Frederica Wilson says lawmakers should make a law protecting themselves from jokes…and no, this is no joke.
On Tuesday, Wilson went with other members of Congress to tour a detention facility for illegal immigrants. During a press conference following the tour, Wilson made a rather interesting comment. Apparently, she believes anyone who “makes fun of members of Congress” on the Internet “should be prosecuted.” “Those people who are online, making fun of members of Congress, are a disgrace and there is no need for anyone to think; that is unacceptable. We’re going to shut them down and work with whoever it is to shut them down, and they should be prosecuted.” “You cannot intimidate members of Congress, threaten members of Congress. It is against the law in this United States of America.” – Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) So much for free speech. The thought police are here and trying desperately to make things worse for us than they were for those living in the Soviet Union. The slaves can’t make fun of the masters without punishment. This is the future of the democrat party. Moving to prosecute people for voicing their opinions and making jokes is dangerous and it’s a slippery slope. Not only that but it’s arbitrary. Who gets to decide what qualifies as “being made fun of?” Is calling Hillary’s pantsuit ugly now against a law and those who say so are going to spend time in jail? Welcome to the new USSA, where democrats are actively attempting to kill free speech.”
No, it is all about people making fun of hats, an insidious form of racism known as hatism, which has to be evil because the word sounds like “hate,” and if something sounds like something else, then it is that something. I think.
