Gateway Pundit reports:
Democrats will introduce a bill this week to rip apart the US Constitution.
Rep. Robert Brady (D-PA) will introduce legislation this week that will criminalize inflammatory language.
Rep. Robert Brady, D-Pennsylvania, said he will introduce legislation making it a federal crime for a person to use language or symbols that could be perceived as threatening or inciting violence against a Member of Congress or federal official.
Brady uses Palin's election map with cross-hairs on the Congressional seats targeted to win as an example of "inflammatory speech". Gateway Pundit posted a Democrat map that appeared on the Democratic Leadership Committee website (dated 2004 during the Bush years).
Cross-hairs or Bull Eyes...what's the difference?
I just can't imagine the new conservatives in the House going along with this assault on the Constitution. Who decides what's inflammatory anyway? It's ridiculous.
Some of the comments on this story in the Gateway Pundit are worth the read. Here's a few:
Aaron commented: Sooo, if I say “I hope president Obama gets BEAT in 2012″, can that be PERCEIVED as inflammatory language since ‘beat’ can be taken in multiple ways?
bigkahuna commented: I see Obama naming The first inflamitory language czar !
Czar: Sgt Special Ed Schultz
First mate: Keith Olberman
Language interpreter:Christingles Mathews
Judge: Bill Ayers
Jury: Rachel Madcow
Executioner: Rosie Odonnel
Gringo commented: Here is Senator Kerry speaking to Bill Maher in 2006: “I could have gone to 1600 Pennsylvania and killed the real bird with one stone.” Perhaps we could pass the legislation, ignore such niceties as Ex Post Facto, and arrest Senator Kerry for that statement.According to another Gateway Pundit article, the Democrats were plotting to blame the Tea Party for the shootings in Tucson.
Democrats plotted to blame the tea party patriots for yesterday’s slaugher in Arizona.
A democratic operative admitted this to The Politico.
Of course, Politico buried it in their story.
One veteran Democratic operative, who blames overheated rhetoric for the shooting, said President Barack Obama should carefully but forcefully do what his predecessor did.
“They need to deftly pin this on the tea partiers,” said the Democrat. “Just like the Clinton White House deftly pinned the Oklahoma City bombing on the militia and anti-government people.”
Are you surprised? Well, don't be. This is now standard operating procedure.
