We’ve had paid, fake protests across the country. And now a state senator is taking advantage of it:
This is a bill currently proposed by a Republican State Senator in Washington state.
“Ericksen has prepared a bill for next year’s legislative session that would create a new crime of economic terrorism,” the senator’s website states. “The measure would allow felony prosecution of those who intentionally break the law in an attempt to intimidate or coerce private citizens or the government by obstructing economic activity.”
Ericksen is apparently sick to death of protests — peaceful or otherwise — and hopes to target activists who occasionally disrupt the flow of commerce or block traffic. Such demonstrations — whatever ire they provoke from those who would rather maintain a routine of sleep, work, eat, repeat — often represent the sole outlet for people who feel their grievances have fallen on lawmakers’ deaf ears.
This bill is extraordinarily dangerous and is exactly what I have been concerned about with these protests. Create the problem. Provide the solution. Informed people are alternately alarmed by the amount of money George Soros and his fellow globalist tyrants are pumping into these fake protests and fucking annoyed with them. It’s a natural emotional response to want to see these puppets punished.
But we must not allow bills like this to pass. This is exactly what they want: Use the protests to further clamp down on our civil liberties.
You should never need a permit to protest. Yes, these protestors are damaging property and assaulting people and obstructing traffic. But there are already laws against that.
Do not fall into the trap. Speak out against any bill that limits our 1st amendment rights, even if it’s a collection of paid slaves causing the reaction.
