These crumby crusaders will not stop. Meanwhile Buy-Dem has appointed more judges than Trump at this point. Packing the courts as they promised to extend CON-gress to legislate from the bench. What a civil war they are stocking up legal weapons up in stinking high piles...

Luckily, this law was thrown out. But Buy-Dem is filling the judiciary with idiots sympathetic to Letitia's rotten cause, nationally. How long will law suits be properly heard until libtards nuke them from orbit?

Oh yeah. NIFO.



"...New York politicians are slapping a badge on my chest. A law going into effect Saturday requires social-media networks, including any site that allows comments, to publish a plan for responding to alleged hate speech by users.

The law blog I run fits the bill, so the law will mandate that I post publicly my policy for responding to comments that “vilify, humiliate, or incite violence against a group” based on “race, color, religion, ethnicity, national origin, disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.” It also requires that I give readers a way to complain about my blog’s content and obligates me to respond directly.

I don’t want to moderate such content and I don’t endorse the state’s definition of hate speech. I do sometimes delete comments, but I do it based on my own editorial judgment, not state command. Still, I’m being conscripted. By obligating me to do the state’s bidding with regard to viewpoints that New York condemns, the law violates the First Amendment.

    There is no such thing as hate speech. Like "war on terror" it is purposefully ambiguous term.

      Yes, purposely ambiguous so it can be wielded as a censorship hammer at the whim of the censor.

      To mind comes Pramilla Jayapal wildly throwing a gavel slamming temper tantrum in Congress when someone wouldn't stop speaking and listen to her. This is what we have. A gang of little tyrants, led by a big tyrant.
