House Democrats Present Bill Requiring Feds To Control ‘Internet Hate Speech’

Thirteen House Democrats, led by one Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) have presented a bill, H.R. 3878 AKA The Hate Crime Reporting Act that would require the government to monitor and control what they define as ‘hate speech’.

The bill calls for National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), a little known federal agency with a fairly murky mission in Washington to ‘with the assistance of the Department of Justice, the Commission, and the United States Commission on Civil Rights’ to submit a report to the the appropriate congressional committees, and requires them to ‘make recommendations consistent with the First Amendment to the Constitution, that the NTIA determines are appropriate and necessary to address such use of telecommunications.’

The bill, you’ll note doesn’t only cover the internet but talk radio.

It’s supported by the NAACP and and several other ‘progressive’ groups, which pretty much let’s you know what the agenda is here. In progressive NewsSpeak, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin,and a number of your favorite websites constitute ‘hate speech’ and need to be suppressed. The likes of Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton and the Left side of the web, not so much.

The bill has only a slight chance of making it out of committee, and even less of being enacted but it’s valuable to look at as a signpost for exactly how little regard or tolerance the Left has for anyone who doesn’t think like they do or freedom of speech that diverges from their party line. This is the sort of thing much of the far Left is angry at President Obama for not pushing through by any means necessary back when the Democrats controlled both houses of Congress.

Jeffries, by the way is the nephew of CUNY professor Leonard Jeffries, Jr., a tenured radical who is a vicious racist and anti-semite and who has spewed his hatred over the web and th epublic airways as well as in the classroom,in print and in his public utterances.

While what his uncle says and does likely has nothing to do with Rep. Jeffries personal beliefs, I wonder…would he support censoring Unkie Leonard?

Forgive my cynicism, but I have a distinct feeling he wouldn’t. Certainly the NAACP wouldn’t go along with it.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
