    I read about that, and now I’m looking for a contact: email, snail mail, FB, whatever. Hell, I’ll even set up a Twatter account, just to insult Herr Goering. And I HATE Twatter. Sure, I’d be shut down in a second, but by then, who cares?
    Insult Groveling……..errrr…….I mean Governor Blackface, and then challenge him, “I live in Utah. Wha’cha gonna do about it? Molan Laave, Ferret Face”

    • Twitter:
      “@GovernorVA
      Official account for Virginia Governor Ralph Northam”

      In a second? That’d have to be some incredibly obscene language or involve threats of violence. You can jump in all day with “You lying sack of bullschiff, go f yourself” and no one blinks. Don’t tell Blackie McCoonman you’re going to Soleimani his butt, that could be reportable.

      Virginia Democrats Push Legislation to Make Criticism of Government Officials a Criminal Offense

      Sounds like they’re talking more about “improper undignified” language, so save the hearty “F you, scum!” comments for anonymous accounts.

        You think they’d consider 100 feet of rope too insulting?

        • Good length for tow ropes and other jobs, merely offering it shouldn’t be an issue. Plausible deniability.

          Saying what nasty things you’ll do to the official and/or their family with the rope, the response to that is already covered by existing law. While I sympathize a bit, the proposed law isn’t needed and just makes politicians a special protected class, protecting them from rough language. Which is pretty dang far from what the Founders took and dealt daily, those guys could get real insulting real fast.

        No.They don’t get to define what Americans say.

      • Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman

        No threats of violence, just insults to His (Front) Royal Highness. Along the lines of “Princess Bride” (near the end).

  • Too Tall

    The first panel documents the Progtard DildoCrats’ destruction of the soap box, the second panel illustrates their corruption of the ballot box. No wonder they are so intent on seizing everyone’s cartridge boxes.

    This will not end well.

  • formwiz

    Be interesting when this hits the Federal courts.

    That Constitution thingy seems to be standing in the way of Blackface.

    • Doggo

      Yeah, but that’s a multi-year effort that’s going to cost big bucks before it’s ultimately successful.

  • Pamela

    Secede from Virginia and join West Virginia. Now.

    • John D. Egbert

      The welcome mat is out . . .

  • WayneM

    I wonder if this might be a “test balloon” of sorts by the leftists? Seeing just how far they can push this kind of nonsense before something gives?

  • Bill G

    We should be giving thanks to Governor Blackface McHoodie; this is another massive contribution in kind to President Trump.

    • Doggo

      and right on his front doorstep. Gov Coonman delivers.

    In 1975, a writer observed that the old USSR would be at its most dangerous when its rulers came to believe that they could get away with anything. A year later we had Jimmy Carter as President, and four years after that the Soviets invaded Afghanistan.

    Apparently, actually succeeding in at least attempting to overturn a Presidential election has made progressives here believe the same thing. When piled on top of “wokism”, “cancel culture”, “SWATing” and everything else they’ve “gotten away with” over the last decade or so.

    It’s time for them to “face the music” as we used to say. Northam & Co. should be hauled into a Federal court, charged with violating their oaths to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and after conviction, be hauled off to a Federal prison.

    And that’s just for starters. Those who want to round up “reactionaries” and put them in “camps” should find out what it’s like, themselves.

    As for Antifa, they should get what the one masked maven got in Richmond the other day, just for starters.

    I’m not advocating illegal acts by anybody, especially law enforcement. Just enforce the laws that they’ve been ignoring all this time, and use existing statutes to punish them for attempting to violate everyone else’s Constitutional rights.

    We have to start doing it now. Or we really will have a second civil war.

    Because they will not stop of their own accord, anymore than the Jacobins did. And France in the end only had one solution to that problem, one we absolutely do not want.

    The last thing we need is an American Bonaparte.

    • GWB

      Concur, wholeheartedly.
      (But not over this bill. Plenty of others to justify this.)

    • Old Codger

      We have to start doing it now. Or we really will have a second civil war.

      I am convinced that we are LONG past the point of being able to avoid that eventuality. As a wise man once put it

      “All politics in this country now is just dress rehearsal for civil war.” — Billy Beck, August 2009.

  • Dread

    Once 1st amendment and second amendment rights are gone, they’ll be no way to protect the remaining rights. And Doomberg calls Trump a demigog. I’ve found that dems do what tbey accuse others of doing and indeed actually are what they accuse others of being. What a horrible mental disease! Is there no cure?

    • PaulS

      “ Is there no cure?”

      There is, Puerto Rico is onto at least one, but there are nondecapitated brands that are just as effective as the real thing. 😉

    • Old Codger

      I’ve found that dems do what tbey accuse others of doing and indeed actually are what they accuse others of being.

      That is because it is anatomically impossible to point the finger at someone without simultaneously pointing THREE fingers back at yourself.

      (Try it if you don’t believe me.)

      • interventor

        Simply point the whole hand towards the malefactor. Then, raise the finger, slightly.

  • GWB

    Stop. Not true. Internet outrage not based on reading the actual bill.

    The only thing (besides changing “shall be” to “is” and a couple of other minor bits) the bill does is change the current law to specify that the governor and some other elected positions have the venue for the crime specified as Richmond (or where the act was committed, or where the perpetrator lives).

    Here is the bill. Changes are in italics there.
    Here is the changein one of the relevant parts (changes bolded):
    A prosecution pursuant to this section may be either in the county, city or town in which the communication was made or received or in the City of Richmond if the person threatened is one of the following officials or employees of the Commonwealth: the Governor, Governor-elect, Lieutenant Governor, Lieutenant Governor-elect, Attorney General, or Attorney General-elect, a member or employee of the General Assembly, a justice of the Supreme Court of Virginia, or a judge of the Court of Appeals of Virginia.
    All five of the major changes are adding that bit of language. They do not replace language already in the law.

    It has always been a crime to threaten or harass anyone, INCLUDING all those elected officials. There is absolutely NOTHING in the bill that makes those people special cases above and beyond us regular schmoe citizens, except their domicile for trying the case is specified as Richmond. That’s IT.

    Now, back to your regularly scheduled haranguing and hot women (and men).

    • Chris Muir

      Forest for the trees,GWB. You’re missing the intent, ‘When in the course of human events..’

      • GWB

        What forest? The only things changed were the addition of a specific possible venue for the crime to be tried.

        Yes, maybe they will get a more favorable hearing in a Richmond court. Is that addition of a possible venue an unreasonable thing, though? Honestly?

        There’s plenty of other stuff going on in the VA legislature to be mad about.

    • Kafiroon

      “It has always been a crime to threaten or harass anyone”
      Really? I have known and heard close hand Many cases. Nothing about that has Ever been enforced to my knowledge. Bernie Boys are threatening every one that does not agree with them. Bribem is on video and his threat was taken care of for him. They In jail or facing court? Crickets.

      • GWB

        You mean you’ve never known of anyone who was arrested or cited for harassment or threatening someone? Wow, a real Pauline Kael moment for you, then.

        Just because it isn’t enforced doesn’t mean it’s not illegal, anyway.
        (And, it is enforced. It has a high threshold because of the First Amendment. But it IS enforced.)

  • Badger

    Frankly I’m cheering for the Puerto Ricans, a few of whom might have come to their senses. Guillotines because, after all, it’s about throughput.

  • King George III issued a royal proclamation on October 7, 1763, which established three new mainland colonies (Quebec, West Florida and East Florida), extended Georgia’s southern border and gave land to soldiers who had fought in the Seven Years’ War. Most notably, the Proclamation of 1763 banned settlement west of the Appalachian Mountains, infuriating colonists—including George Washington.

    n May 1763, just a few months after the formal conclusion of the Seven Years’ War, a pan-tribal confederacy led by Ottawa chief Pontiac rose up in rebellion. His warriors attacked a dozen British forts, capturing eight of them, and raided numerous frontier settlements. Hundreds died in the process. In response, the British handed out smallpox-infected blankets to Pontiac’s followers. Moreover, a gang of whites known as the Paxton Boys massacred 20 defenseless Native Americans who had nothing to do with the fighting.

    In an attempt to prevent similar incidents from occurring, King George III issued his royal decree. Acknowledging that “great frauds and abuses have been committed,” the proclamation furthermore prohibited settlers from buying tribal territory. Instead, only the crown could now make such purchases.

    A few more things happened and then…

    Ultimately, the new acquisitions failed to quiet colonial discontent with the Proclamation of 1763. And though it would be later overshadowed by other complaints against the British, such as the Sugar Act, the Stamp Act, the Townshend Acts, the so-called Intolerable Acts and the Boston Massacre, it remained enough of a concern that the Declaration of Independence criticized King George III for “raising the conditions of new appropriations of lands.” By winning their freedom from the British in 1783, the Americans rendered the proclamation moot.

    Those that pay no attention to history are doomed to repeat it.

    My favorite non threat:
    “I take satisfaction in knowing every breath you take is one more closer to your last, and that God knows when that will be.”

    And that’s a fact, Jack!

  • JTC

    To the ‘bot’s point, many many “not a persons” are and will be on the Dim voter roll.

    Notwithstanding the terrifying possibility of a draft at their convention, they know by now none of their clowns has any chance of beating Trump. So it follows that their surreptitious minions are working on the dead and otherwise ineligible ballots. A good f’rinstance is the counties of Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach in FL where even the “officials” in charge of and counting votes routinely “find” uncounted ones and have even been known to counsel the many Puerto Ricans there (many more since the hurricane and earthquakes) who are US Citizens but not eligible to vote to give US addresses and sign up anyway, with virtually no chance of getting caught or punished if they do. Just one of their many ruses.

    Desperate animals do desperate things when cornered, and of course Dims are prone to lying, thieving, crooked-ass behavior anyway. It is a major threat that needs attention to head off pre-emptively as much as possible.

    So, y’know, how many “not a person” friends can you come up with/create Jo?

  • Kafiroon

    Well Shiite. I guess with that proposal I need to sign up for that cesspool Twitter.
    I need to take part in that long time honored American Tradition of telling any and all elected or appointed ‘officials’ exactly, with appropriate to their office, words they need to hear.
    Is that steaming brown pile emoji OK to send?

  • JohninMd.(help!)

    I don’t need any foul language at all, simply send the Gov. Twenty ft. Of 3/4″ rope w/ a hangman’s noose on it, with a note – “Having recieved your 30 pcs. of silver from Mr. Bloomberg, and the original being lost to time, this will serve. Judas Iscariot used his correctly.”. See? No threat involved….

    • Pamela

      I guess it might have been foretold of this day that the cercis canadensis grows in Virginia. Does one grow in a potter’s field?

      • Too Tall

        Eastern Redbud tree? Very beautiful, and extremely common in Virginia.

  • Halley

    Minerva, Marjorie, Pallas Athene, Mike/Michelle and Gay Deceiver were persons, so I see no reason why Jo can’t be, too…?

    • Bill G

      Right on!
