More naked tyranny in Virginia

Not since the Alien and Sedition Acts promulgated during John Adams' administration have we seen anything like this!


FREE SPEECH

Virginia Democrats Push Legislation to Make Criticism of Government Officials a Criminal Offense


In the wake of the Virginia gun rights rally on Monday, Democrats in the Capitol are not slowing down their push for tyranny. They are moving a bill through the legislature that would effectively criminalize dissent against Governor "Blackface" Northam and other state government officials.

House Bill 1627 was introduced by Delegate Jeffrey M. Bourne last week. The legislation "provides that certain crimes relating to threats and harassment may be prosecuted in the City of Richmond if the victim is the Governor, Governor-elect, Lieutenant Governor, Lieutenant Governor-elect, Attorney General, or Attorney General-elect, a member or employee of the General Assembly, a justice of the Supreme Court of Virginia, or a judge of the Court of Appeals of Virginia.”

Language in the bill explicitly criminalizes free speech, in what would constitute a blatant attack on the 1st Amendment of the Constitution.

"If any person, with the intent to coerce, intimidate, or harass any person, shall use a computer or computer network to communicate obscene, vulgar, profane, lewd, lascivious, or indecent language, or make any suggestion or proposal of an obscene nature, or threaten any illegal or immoral act, he is guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor,” the legislation reads.

The legislation makes it clear that the above provision applies directly to "the Governor, Governor-elect, Lieutenant Governor, Lieutenant Governor-elect, Attorney General, or Attorney General-elect, a member or employee of the General Assembly, a justice of the Supreme Court of Virginia, or a judge of the Court of Appeals of Virginia,” which means this legislation effectively criminalizes dissent against public officials.

Tina Freitas, wife of Republican Delegate Nick Freitas, called attention to this intolerable act in a Facebook post on Tuesday night.

"Wow on cue, now they are after the 1A! Dems are trying to set up special rules exclusive to the Elite ruling class, to protect themselves from criticism!” Freitas wrote.

"What is considered harassment? Is Governor Infanticide/KKK Hood trying to avoid being held accountable? Are we no longer allowed to demand justice for the alleged rape victims of LG Fairfax? This is some straight up communist censorship!” she added.

Virginia Democrats were not detracted by the gun rights rally on Monday in the slightest. They moved red flag laws through the legislature just a day later, and subsequently killed pro-gun bills that were introduced by Republicans.

"The governor and the leadership of the democrats have declared war on law-abiding citizens and gun owners and their votes today just confirmed that that’s where we’re going,” said Philip Van Cleave, President of Virginia Citizens Defense League.

Yikes! Whoever is behind this (my guess is Bloomberg and Soros), they are pushing too fast, and that may save us. At any rate, if you have friends in The Old Dominion, urge them to oppose this! And RESIST!

2 As I read the proposed law, the following would still be entirely legal because it does not use not obscene, vulgar, profane, lewd, lascivious, or indecent language, and does not make any suggestion or proposal of an obscene nature, nor threaten any illegal or immoral act.

"Governor Blackface is stupid and ignorant, and his actions are repugnant in their entirety. They are an offense to all men of good will and are against all manner of decency and good taste for the following specific reasons. (list reasons here) We cannot tolerate his continuance and must vote him out of office at the first opportunity."


So, while I acknowledge that the law is left wing nonsense, the headline that it "Makes Criticism of Government a Criminal Offense" is egregious hyperbole.

3 I -- and I'm sure many others -- do not trust Coonman and his minions to stick to the letter of the law as they go about enforcing this. Once people like this give themselves the tools of tyranny, it is woefully difficult to confine themselves to "just a little tyranny."


And it's a "fer-sherr" that they will not be trusted by those on the Right. Nor should they be.

4 Yes sir Dana; it's a slippery slope. And it clearly oversteps the First Amendment.
