Senator Ed Markey Bids to Impose Speech Codes on the Internet

If you have anything to say about a member of one of the groups at the top of the liberal caste system that might be deemed critical, you had better get it off your chest now, before Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) gets the First Amendment repealed:

U.S. Sen. Ed Markey wants to empower an obscure federal agency to begin scouring the Internet, TV and radio for speech it finds threatening — a plan met with jeers from defenders of the First Amendment.

Jeers would be appropriate if leftist thugs like Markey weren’t calling the shots in Washington. My first reaction was a gasp of horror.

The “Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014” presents a frankly chilling proposition. The spookily-named National Telecommunications and Information Administration (what, you’ve never heard of it?) would be required to submit a report to Congress on “the use of telecommunications” “to advocate and encourage violent acts and the commission of crimes of hate.”

Using its own judgment to determine what qualifies as impermissible speech, the new government hall monitors would then recommend steps for Congress to take that are “appropriate and necessary to address such use of telecommunications.”

We aren’t talking about actual physical threats; there are already laws against those. This bill apparently aims to impose university-style speech codes on the Internet and talk radio. Evidently Markey & Co. are attempting to criminalize speech that any Muslim, homosexual, or black decides to find offensive.

As for the First Amendment: try exercising your rights under the Second Amendment in New York City and you will discover how seriously liberals take the Bill of Rights.

One more Democrat pick on the Supreme Court and a law like this could be upheld as constitutional, putting a definitive end to the expression, “It’s a free country.”

Senator-Ed-Markey
Markey wants your mouth closed.

On a tip from Sean C.

    Don’t bother, he hasn’t got any. Hitting him in the head won’t do any good either because he has no effing brains. Center mass is what I’ve heard works best.

    Markey and the senior Senator from Mass, the fake Indian Fauxchahontas Warren, need to be treated like that stuff on the sidewalk you tried to avoid but realized you actually stepped in. Just scrape it off on the curb.

    What the hell is wrong with Massachusetts?

    There are number of acts that would be literally intolerable in a free society. This would be one.

    There are a number of acts that would be literally intolerable in a free society. This would be one. The fact that a sitting US Senator could even propose this without being tarred and feathered chills my blood. As it did when a similar measure was discussed in the House. An act like this would remove what little legitimacy the Federal Government has left.

    This is the headliner on my blog, the Anti Liberal Zone and markey and his butt-buddies can kiss my white ass if I will EVER modify my speech. As a matetr of fact, Markey can fuck off right now.

    Our Founders must be ashamed that so many scumbags come out of the Masshole sewer and into the DC cesspool.

    Masshole is full of people to stupid, to lazy, or to ignorant to defend the birthright of liberty that God gave them from being born in the USA and take it all for granted. That plus a shateload of welfare pigs and Third World illegal aliens.

    We have too many colleges and universities here, and too many Democrat activists. Where do you think the community activist in chief got his start – at the America hating Hah-vahd University of course.

    Add to that the number of AFSCME and SEIU employees, it’s amazing that there are any non-Democrats in the state legislature. Oh yeah, there’s no voter fraud or anything here, nah that only happens elsewhere.

    Recently, Fauxchahontas has been said to be the new left wing standard bearer, ready to take over for the commie in the White House. Some have even floated the possibility of Granny Warren running for President. If that ever happens fellow patriots, you MUST bring your militia to this wretched state and do your patriotic duty to end this siege by the communists among us. Lock and load and meet us on Beacon Hill. It will end here!

    It is high time that individuals like Markey be targeted in any and all fashions. These people need to be stopped in anyway possible. Hit them from every angle.
