Dem: Let’s Criminalize Jokes About Congress

Doesn’t Frederica Wilson realize that Congress is a joke, especially the Black Caucus?

Representative Frederica Wilson (D-FL) – known for her dumb hats and even dumber ideas – has reached a new apex (of stupidity). She wants to criminalize jokes about Congress on the Internet.

Rep. Frederica Wilson has no love for social media’s meme-makers and pranksters — she literally wants them prosecuted.

The Florida Democrat weighed in on free speech issues this week and told an audience that it should be illegal to mock lawmakers.

“Those people who are online making fun of members of Congress are a disgrace,” she said while speaking in Homestead. “We’re gonna shut them down and work with whoever it is to shut them down, and they should be prosecuted. You cannot intimidate members of Congress, frighten members of Congress. It is against the law, and it’s a shame in this United States of America.”

Footage of the remarks was viewed hundreds of thousands of times on Twitter.

Over five thousand people replied to the video shared by The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra.

Some responses include:

  • “They really think they are kings and queens. More like privileged little dictators.”
  • “That’s for tyrannical governments.”
  • “Obviously a very strong proponent of the First Amendment. Wilson proves, again, she is utterly clueless.”
  • “Having an opinion is against the law? Huh? What else will Democrat’s outlaw?”

The Democrat’s comments come against a political backdrop in which Twitter announced new rules for government officials.

New policy effective June 27 seeks to “protect the health of the public conversation” by hiding messages deemed unacceptable.

Hat tip: Washington Times

It’s not easy being that stupid, but Frederica really works at it.

    Does the Black Congressional Caucus remind you of the old Amos & Andy Show without Amos and Sapphire – the two intelligent, honest, hard-working characters?

    Do you think she means jokes like Kathy Griffn holding a fake bloody Trump head?

    Yeah, me neither.

    She dresses like a clown, literally, and says things that are so far past ridiculous they can’t be measured.

    OF COURSE we are going to mock her…more now than ever!

    5,

    AOC is just following Goebbels advise — If you are going to tell a lie, tell a really big one, its easier to sell to the masses. It makes it believable because most folks think ‘That’s absurd, no one would say that so it must be true.’

    As to laughing at Congress. That has been a national pastime since 1620. I don’t think it is going to change anytime soon. And gilts like Wilson just make it that much easier.

    Well, it appears there will be food for us in Hut 1369 if Kamala becomes president:
