Since my youth I have called many things because of my political and social beliefs….I remember slogans like “the only good Commie is a dead Commie”….a disturbing thought when you do not agree with the words or thoughts of someone who does not hold with your particular form of thinking.
That was then and this is now.
Looks like the state of Iowa and Oklahoma has gone that next step……make it legal to kill a Leftist……yes you read that correctly….”kill a Leftist”…..
So now it’ll be legal in some Neolithic U.S. states to run over leftists with your car. What’ll come next? Legalizing pushing people out of airplanes at 35,000 feet? Running over swimmers with boats? Unleashing your rabid dog on people whose political persuasions offend you? There are so many possibilities! It’s already legal for cops to shoot leftists. They did so with no repercussions in Oregon, after Trump took to the airwaves to tell them to hurry up and “do what has to be done” to Michael Reinoehl, suspected of shooting a fascist. And cops murder people in traffic stops all the time. But why just police? Doesn’t any idiot with a gun have the right to “stand his ground?” Why can’t fascists like the Proud Boys shoot anybody they don’t like? After all, if radical right-wing thugs don’t like somebody, GOP governors can’t be far behind, nodding in agreement. This is the new criteria in some U.S. states for how we excuse homicide – red-blooded Amuricans don’t like these people, so yeah, it’s cool to drive smack into them.
According to the Des Moines Register, a new law in Iowa would “grant civil immunity to drivers of vehicles who injure someone who is blocking traffic while engaging in disorderly conduct or participating in a protest, demonstration, riot or unlawful assembly without a permit.” The Washington Post reports that Florida governor Ron “Who Needs Masks?” DeSantis signed a similar law. “That legislation is already a target of a federal civil rights lawsuit,” the Post reports. Oklahoma also passed such a measure.
So now not only has some states made it illegal to protest (a 1st amendment right) but now it is okay to run over anyone you do not agree with.
Never thought I would live to see the day when it was legal to execute political opponents.
Every day this country moves closer to Nazi Germany.
Does anyone else find this disturbing?
If not the you are a cog in the racism machine at work in so many states.
Hatred has found a strong home here in the US.
