President Barack Obama Signs Bill that Ends Free Speech in Presence of Any Politician.

The official White House release stated that President Obama,

"Signed into law: H.R. 347, the ‘Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011,’ which makes it a federal crime to enter or remain knowingly in any restricted area of the White House, the vice president’s official residence, or their respective grounds without lawful authority.”

Some government officials may need extraordinary protection to ensure their safety. But criminalizing legitimate First Amendment activity even if that activity is annoying to those government officials, violates our rights.

No votes yet

And the sheeple bleat their approval.

Any statement I make is the opinion of me exercising my first amendment right to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and is generally permitted.

Since when has just anyone been able to just hang out in, "...any restricted area of the White House, the vice president's official residence or their respective grounds"? And, just how is not being within these restricted areas ending free speech "...in presence of ANY POLITICIAN (emphasis added)"? Talk about overstatement!

Let me guess. I'll just bet that there were at least dozens of people walking near the White House today carrying signs unflattering to the President! How were their rights affected by this new law? NOT AT ALL!! Are you two getting paranoid, or have you always been that way?
