|The Republicans were essentially threatened and terrorized against voting for revenue. Now [some] are facing recalls. They operate under a terrorist threat: "You vote for revenue and your career is over." I don't know why we allow that kind of terrorism to exist. I guess it's about free speech, but it's extremely unfair.|
- Karen Bass (D-LA)
So law makers now think people who hold lawmaker accountable through the ballot box, and actually express that opinion on the radio (and probably other media like this) are terrorists. Bass just got caught saying this out loud.
This is what leftists think, it’s even worse in colleges and universities where students have been turned into the police and investigated for saying and talking about ideas the left doesn’t want others to hear. The web site for The Fire - Foundation for individual rights in education, is filled with dozens of stories about students being punished if it doesn’t agree with the left.
This isn’t just a California problem. Congress is pushing HR 1966 which would make blogs which “intimidate” others a crime. Some say this blog does that. I’m sure it could be used to shut down those who would want congress persons recalled if they vote to raise taxes, as that is intimidating to a member of the legislature.
Make sure when you vote, you know where you candidate stands on free speech.
