Democrats & Muslim Lawmakers Push Sharia Legislation Criminalizing Free Speech - Your Attention is Needed Now!

There is very dangerous legislation making its way through both the House of Representatives and Senate that will finish the United States. The sharia bill calls for Islamic blasphemy laws — the criminalization of speech that offends or insults — who, exactly? Well, that is up to the enforcer, is it not?

On Wednesday, Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) introduced “The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014″ (S.2219), which seeks “to examine the prevalence of hate crime and hate speech on the Internet, television, and radio to better address such crimes.” Congressman Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) introduced a companion bill in the House – H.R. 3878.

"Finish the United States"? Yikes! Gosh darn those Islamist supremacists.

Patience is a great virtue.

It's not SwampBubbles, it's TEA-DOM OUTHOUSE.COM!

Go read the fucking bill, Linecrosser's Sockpuppet.

scary in the sense that someone bothered to get their panties in a bunch over it. I like how it's called Sharia legislation. That makes it extra scary.

Free speech is a myth. Say what' s on your mind and if someone is listening you may get sued, lose your job, your credit status may plummet. Free speech just like freedom isn't free.

Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose.

Patience is a great virtue.

Our right to freedom of speech was put in place mainly to allow citizens to publicly disagree with their government and elected officials without being thrown in jail. All of our freedoms are limited by the impact they have. If I state outright lies about an individual, that individual has had her/his rights violated by my speech. My right to speak freely is limited to speaking truthfully. I do not have the right to make direct threats to others or to make statements that place others in peril for life or limb: the old, "you can't yell 'fire!' in a crowded theater," bit.

When I was in the private sector, I worked in my father's very small business. As far as his personal political views are concerned, my father was much more of a partisan Democrat than I ever was or ever will be. However, we NEVER put one political sign in front of our store. NEVER! Even when I worked on campaigns or when I ran campaigns for others, our store had NO SIGNS ANYWHERE! My father did not want to alienate potential customers.
To this day, I am taken aback whenever I see a political sign placed by the owner and/or manager of a store. I think it to be foolish on their part. Do they have a "right" to do so as part of their "freedom of speech?" Of course! But they should not be surprised if some people do not frequent their business because of this. Freedom of speech does not entitle anyone to freedom from the consequences of their use of that speech. If one feels strongly enough, one is willing to take the risk. But don't complain because your actions bring negative outcomes. You are not immune to counter actions by those who disagree with you.

Careful Dale,

Your last paragraph suggests that businesses are people and thus have a right to free speech. The other liberals on here will get mad at you.

Mikeya, apparently there is something you don't understand. Not every business is a corporation. When liberals are against “corporate personhood”, it is because of the liability a corporation can escape from, not because we are anti-business. A lot of liberals are business owners. Liberals aren't against business, we just want business to be responsible.

A perfect example of a corporation getting different treatment from an individual is how GM is trying to escape responsibility for its latest ignition problems. Suing a corporation is very different from suing an individual. Corporations by their nature have protections that regular people do not have. That is why it is unfair to consider corporations as persons.

MikeyA has a hard time understanding that the sun isn't a giant yellow snowball.

corporation. A "very small business" is usually managed by the owner. In my father's business, we mostly ran it with 2 or 3 people, INCLUDING BOTH OF US!! We often had one employee in addition to my father and me.

This brings up an interesting concept. What exactly IS a "small business?" When most of us picture a "small business," we often picture a "Mom and Pop" type of store like the one my father owned. Maybe we think of a local bar and grill, with the owner almost always at the site, who employs a handful of additional employees. That is NOT what most conservative politicians refer to when they refer to "small businesses." Here is what the Small Business Association describes as a "small Business:"

In other words, "small businesses" are often multi-million dollar operations with hundreds of employees. So, the next time a politician expresses concern for the "small business" owner, that politician may well be talking about someone who is a multi-millionaire!!
