Democrat Will Introduce Bill "Targeting" Speech

As Chris from Bonsai from the Right commented yesterday on our post 'Left Begin Their Attacks On AZ Tragedy' that free speech (1st amendment) will be under attack. Well it turns out he was right.


And Rep Robert Brady reasoning to introduce this bill, is the same over reactions as the Democrats base supporters are... And that is Sarah Palin famous "Election Campaign Map." (These people need to get a life)

From CNN
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’s decision to offer the legislation comes less than 24 hours after a gunman attempted to assassinate Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Arizona, in a shooting that claimed the lives of a federal judge, and a nine year-old girl, among others.
“The president is a federal official,” Brady said in a telephone interview with CNN. “You can’t do it to him; you should not be able to do it to a congressman, senator or federal judge.
“This is not a wake up call, this is major alarms going off,” he said.
Brady is particularly incensed over a web posting by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin during the 2010 election in which she targeted 20 House Democrats, including Giffords for political defeat. The posting showed a map of the United States with the 20 Democratic congressional districts identified by gun sights.
“You can’t put bulls eyes or crosshairs on a United States congressman or a federal official,” Brady said. “I understand this web site that had it on there is no longer in existence. Someone is feeling a little guilty.”
So even though we DON'T know whether this guy had any political motive, the Dems knee jerk reaction is to introduce a bill to stop free speech and Sarah Palin (or anyone) from using certain words and images.
Your [1st] is under attack!!!

My second what is under attack?

Its interesting that he would sponsor a bill to limit the most important free freedom, our right to speech and press. Without those all the others aren't worth much.

I think the bill is wrong, and threats should be illegal put imagery like that isn't wrong. No one believes Palin wanted Gabby Giffords dead. Stupid dem.

Sarah Palins image wasn't even the most offensive...

No offense, but i think the republican party should sit out any election to replace congresswoman Giffords.

A lot of Democrats want Republicans to sit out. I've noticed that the left-wing either have their hard sell and soft sell pushing for the Tea Party and Republicans to sit out. One uses hate speech and the other uses a pat on the back with a ,"you know it's the right thing to do" statement afterwards. I think no matter what happens it's the voters in that districts seat not the Democrats seat. Should the Republican Party be controled by this nutcase and not run because some on the left say it's PC? I think it is wrong to let this nut case have so much control over Washington. These reactions by Washington only make a copycat more likely. I know it might seem harsh but we need Washington to keep business as usual just so any copycats see the lack of reaction and give up before they try.

My Bad, thats what happens when you blog on the fly. It's been changed.
Well lets see what her condition is before any one starts calling for an election.
This bill is disturbing to say the least. So quick to jump all over the constitution.
