In 2017 at the Unite The Right rally, neo-Nazis goose-stepped around with their tiki torches chanting, “Jews will not replace us” and, “Blood and soil.” Donald Trump claimed there were good people marching with Nazis making those chants. They were there to protect a Confederate statue the city voted to remove. They were met by anti-protesters, people opposed to racism and fascism. The tiki-torch Nazis responded by brawling with the antifascists. One Nazi intentionally drove his car into a crowd of anti-racist protesters. In doing so, the Nazi murdered Heather Heyer and injured 19 others. The Nazi driver was convicted of first-degree murder along with several other charges and is now serving a life prison sentence.
Soon, depending on which fucknut red state you’re in, that type of first-degree murder will be legal.
That’s right, kiddos. Republicans across the nation aren’t just content with taking away your voting rights…they want to make it legal for Nazis to kill you. Or at the very least, punish you for protesting by taking away your rights to receive public assistance, student loans, government jobs, and even the right to run for elective office. Seriously. They are trying to silence you.
What’s funny is, all those ammosexuals horny for guns who refer to themselves as “constitutionalists” are pretty quiet about this assault on the First Amendment. In case you’re a Republican, the First Amendment is also in the Constitution.
Florida’s idiot governor, Ron DeSantis, is calling their anti-free speech law the “strongest anti-looting, anti-rioting, pro-law-enforcement piece of legislation in the country.” Here’s the thing, kids. It’s already illegal to loot and riot. What they’re doing here is making it illegal to assemble which means they’re making it illegal to protest. They’re making it illegal to say what they don’t want to hear. DeSantis has also tied this to protecting Confederate statues and any protester who harms one can serve 15 years in prison. Who do you think he’s talking to with that? He’s talking to Nazis.
They’re saying this is a pro-law-enforcement act, but most of these guys can’t summon up the word “terrorists” when it comes to those MAGA fuckers who attacked our nation’s Capitol building and attacked cops. When racist fucks like DeSantis talk about the “riots” and “looting,” they mention Portland. What they don’t mention is Washington, D.C.
One of these bills is actually from a Republican in the Minnesota legislature. So, while Derek Chauvin is going to jail for murdering a black man, if this bill passes, you can can legally murder those protesting the murder of a black man. There are over 80 bills being sponsored to silence protests in 34 states.
In Oklahoma and Iowa, they’re making it legal to run over protesters in your car if you’re afraid for your life. That’s ridiculous because white Republicans are always afraid of black people. Just watch Tucker Carlson tonight. That guy is probably doing his show in a diaper because he’s scaring the shit out of himself.
In fact, this has already happened in Oklahoma. Last year in Tulsa, a driver in a pickup hauling a horse trailer drove through a crowd of Black Lives Matter protesters. He injured several and even paralyzed one for life. Guess what. He wasn’t charged because he was “scared” of all the black people. Seriously. If there was a horse in that trailer and someone would have paralyzed it, they would have been charged. In Oklahoma, horses have more rights than black people.
Also, being afraid of Black Lives Matter protesters is bullshit. Look at me. I’m not Chuck Norris and I don’t carry a gun or even a pointy stick, yet I felt perfectly safe walking with Black Lives Matter for over 60 blocks in Manhattan and mingling with them in Washington, D.C. The only people who scared me were the cops. Did that give me the right to murder scary cops? Nope.
Black Lives Matter protesters will chant with a lot of profanity, but they’re some of the nicest people you will ever meet. Claiming you’re afraid of them says a lot more about you.
They’re calling these hate bills “anti-riot” bills, but here’s a little juicy tidbit: Over 96 percent of Black Lives Matter protests last year were peaceful. What’s more, they found that most violence was instigated by white supremacists crashing the protests, and cops. Wanna hear another interesting juicy tidbit? Sure, you do. One hundred percent of white nationalists neo-Nazi protests where Donald Trump spoke resulted in violence, terrorist attacks, and loss of lives.
MAGA fuckers are a lot scarier than Black Lives Matter or Antifa. A MAGA crowd is more likely to have terrorists in their groups and people who support terrorists. A Black Lives Matter and Antifa crowd is more likely to consist of vegetarians and people who want to go to Starbucks later.
Concerning the white nationalists responsible for the majority of terrorists attack in this nation, you don’t see Republicans sponsoring legislation to silence them. Why, silencing racists and other assorted fucknut Nazis like Oath Keepers, Proud Boys, and the something-or-other percenters would be anti-Constitutional. Nazis have a right to assemble and protest. You don’t even see blue states trying to make that illegal. All the Proud Boys can protest all they want to “stop the steal” and for the right to kiss their sisters on the mouth, but it wouldn’t give you the right to run them over in a pickup hauling a horse trailer.
But just like with voting where Republicans only want white people to have a voice, they only want Nazis to have freedom of speech. If you believe black lives matter or you’re anti-fascism, they want to silence you. They want to make your voice illegal. At what point do they make my cartoons illegal?
I can’t speak for Black Lives Matter but I’m pretty sure these Nazi-coddling Republican motherfuckers will not silence them, and I assure you they won’t silence me either.
All the conservatives, like Tucker Carlson, who are upset a white cop has been convicted for murdering a black man now want to make it legal for Nazis to murder people protesting a white cop killing a black man. If Republicans had their way, the murder of Heather Heyer would have been legal.
