“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”—Amendment I, Constitution of United States of America, 1789
Rep. Frederica Wilson [D-FL], who is not the sharpest knife in the Democratic party’s drawer, went on a rant against those who make fun of people in Congress on Wednesday.
The Florida Democrat weighed in on free speech issues this week and told an audience that it should be illegal to mock lawmakers, reported the Washington Examiner.
“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.” [Emphasis added.]
Apparently, the dimwitted Congresswoman who has sworn to uphold the Constitution of the United States has never bothered to read it.
"Those people who are online, making fun of members of congress are a disgrace."
"There is no need for anyone to think that is unacceptable."
