Virginia Democrats File Bill To Make Online Criticism of Elected Officials a Crime. We’re Not Kidding.

Richmond, VA–Not content with destroying the Second Amendment or filing bills that would kill healthy babies after they had been born, the Democrats in Virginia are after the First Amendment, too.

It’s only natural after the black eye they got this past Monday, January 20th at Lobby Day.  After all, the crowd of 30,000+ gun owners that showed up in Richmond was only a tiny fraction of the conversation compared to the legions of angry gun owners online.

Free Speech Is Too Mean For the Snowflake Era

Well, the Democrats want to put an end to that, too.  House Bill 1627 was filed by Jeffrey Bourne, a Democrat from District 71 on January 16th.

It reads in part:

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 shall be is guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor. A violation of this section may be prosecuted in the jurisdiction in which the communication was made or received or in the City of Richmond if the person subjected to the act is one of the following officials or employees of the Commonwealth: 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.

No Definitions = You’re ALL Guilty

Did you see that?

If anybody online want to “coerce, intimidate, or harass any person…(or)…make any suggestion or proposal of an obscene nature, or threaten any illegal or immoral act…”

What is the definition of all these terms?  It’s it calling for the guillotine, or just calling them a dummy?  Is calling for their removal from office considered harassment?  Is it an immoral act to say you want to march on the capital with baseball bats wrapped in barbed wire?  Yeah, that last one…likely so.

But back to the point.  No definitions means they can and will twist anything you say online to fall into their jurisdiction.  And after the first few people go away for online ‘thought crime’, people will just stop speaking out against the tyrants.  Historians will tell you they’ve seen this play out in totalitarian regimes around the world.  Millions of people end up dead.

But Who Do They Think They’re Fooling?

THEIR GOVERNMENT THREATENED TO CALL OUT THE NATIONAL GUARD ON CITIZENS!   Did they think we forgot?!  This is the most repulsive example of the hypocritical whining we’ve ever seen.

The Governor of Virginia can bully and threaten the citizens–and use police powers to do so.  They can put fences around our public buildings, disarm us using phony accusations of ‘credible threats’ and worse.

That’s not to even mention that the laws they’re trying to pass would make tens of thousands of citizens into criminals–felons–overnight!  The penalty for owning objects they’ve outlawed would be years in prison!

But WE can’t threaten or intimidate or harass THEM.

Senator Amanda Chase, who we praised last week for her tough stance against Northam, expressed her grave concern at this latest outrageous tactic.

Fight while you can, Virginia.  These people are monsters and are eager to destroy America and build up a socialist, though-policed, hell in her place.

Over. Our. Dead. Bodies.
