    In the wake of the Virginia gun rights rally on Monday, Democrats in the Capitol are not slowing down their push for tyranny. They are moving a bill through the legislature that would effectively criminalize dissent against Governor Blackface Northam and other state government officials.

    House Bill 1627 was introduced by Delegate Jeffrey M. Bourne last week. The legislation “provides that certain crimes relating to threats and harassment may be prosecuted in the City of Richmond if the victim is 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.”

    Language in the bill explicitly criminalizes free speech, in what would constitute a blatant attack on the 1st Amendment of the Constitution.

    DemonRATS Sounding more and more like Bejing.and North Korea politically each day....Is Virginia the TRIAL STATE for American communism as DemonRATS now have full control of all 3 branches of the government? One has to wonder after the GUN RALLY this week where thousands showed up to protest the governments taking away 2nd Amendment rights!

    Excellent! It is my hope that this tyranny goes forward and is enacted.
    Bring on the boogaloo.

    Funny how the attack on the second amendment was immediately followed by an attack on the First Amendment

    We need laws to make it a felony to incite violence against Trump supporters.

    Dissent is not necessarily a threat or harassment
