Don’t be fooled. Democrats will not rest until they demolish anyone who disagrees with them. They have long chipped away at Americans’ rights, all to give their party the upper hand. The latest scheme coming from the left is their so-called battle against white supremacy.
Of course, anything they don’t like can be called “white supremacy.” That includes speech that contradicts their political narrative. The First Amendment protects everyone’s speech, even speech that some disagree with. But if Democrats get this new bill passed, everyone right of center is in danger.
From Fox News:
The Leading Against White Supremacy Act of 2023, sponsored by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, would make it a federal crime not just to commit a crime that is inspired by White supremacy, but to post something on social media that promotes White supremacist views if someone else then sees it and commits a crime.
“It is a criminal hate speech law that would violate core principles of the First Amendment,” George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley wrote in a Tuesday blog post. “It makes clear that the accused does not actually have to support or conspire in a crime.”
It is pretty disturbing that Democrats would even propose this bill. It is already a federal crime to commit a “hate crime.” Hate crimes include any acts of violence or discrimination against someone because of their race, gender, or sexuality.
But Democrat Sheila Jackson snuck into this new bill something else. Although it is already illegal to hurt someone because of race, she wants it so that anyone who posts something that promotes “white supremacy” can also go to jail.
And, of course, everything is considered white supremacy by a radicalized Democratic Party. Democrats make everything about race. If you disagree with them on any point, eventually they will call you a racist. So, this bill–if passed–will be used by Democrats to shut down the free speech of nearly every American.
It is clearly a violation of the First Amendment. As of right now, there is no way it will be passed in the House, let alone reach the Senate. But for Democrats to even consider this bill is troubling. How can anyone who cares about our freedoms and constitutional rights think this kind of bill is appropriate?
How can any Democrat, who claims to care about democracy, think that attacking free speech is right? This bill would create an environment where Americans are denied their free speech rights, out of fear of being accused of being a “white supremacist.”
Americans need to take a good, long look at the people they are supporting in Congress.
- Democrats in the House proposed a bill criminalizing “white supremacy” online.
- The bill would violate the First Amendment, criminalizing speech.
- The left has long tried to undermine free speech by calling some “hate speech.”
