Down in the sunny, and we are reliably informed “free” State of Florida, Sen. Jason Brodeur is evidently adding a new chapter to Ron DeSantis’s new collection of platitudes. He dropped a Bill this week to violate the speech and press rights of Bloggers in the land of the sleep gators and the treacherous political rats. READ IT HERE. Brodeur is an Ivy League-educated Senator, so no one expects that he has read the First Amendment nor Article One, Section Four of the Florida Constitution:
Freedom of speech and press.—Every person may speak, write and publish sentiments on all subjects but shall be responsible for the abuse of that right. No law shall be passed to restrain or abridge the liberty of speech or of the press. In all criminal prosecutions and civil actions for defamation the truth may be given in evidence. If the matter charged as defamatory is true and was published with good motives, the party shall be acquitted or exonerated.
This bullshit fits nicely with DeSantis’s criminalization of books and his hellish lust for a country run by people who claim Jesus Christ is currently boiling in hell. Add in his alleged work at GITMO and some other things, and, yes, he would be a perfect fit in the DC swamp.
If I had time, I’d call Brodeur’s office on Monday and ask him some questions for a hypothetical blog article that would never be registered with his or any other fucking wannabe SS cabal. If I had the time.
