Dimwit Republican Moves To Censor Free Speech

I haz butterface!

Usually it’s the other way around, but this one is squarely on the Republican side.

Rep. Mike Rogers (R-AL)


HR 3011, which would make it a felony to:

without written permission, use the words, acronyms, or symbols of those agencies on apparel or in a publication “in a matter that is reasonably calculated to convey the impression that the wearer of the item of apparel is acting pursuant to the legal authority of” the agencies or “to convey the impression” that the written materials “is approved, endorsed, or authorized by” the agencies.

Satire has been upheld in the past to not be an infringement, but it’s nice to see the faux conservatives rear their ugly heads.  You can’t have all the wackos on the left getting all the attention while they ‘occupy’ Wall Street.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again … the hardest thing about being a conservative is consistently being a conservative.
