In a piece published by The Intercept on January 19, Spencer Woodman claimed, “Over the past few weeks, Republican legislators across the country have quietly introduced a number of proposals to criminalize and discourage peaceful protest.”
Is Woodman correct? Did Republicans introduce a number of proposals to criminalize and discourage peaceful protest?
Woodman is incorrect.
At the time of his claim, Republican lawmakers in three states had introduced legislation to increase penalties for protesting in roadways or on highways, where it is already illegal. In a fourth state, Republican lawmakers introduced a bill that would make it easier for employers and individuals to obtain injunctive relief for already illegal forms of picketing, while designating new fines for those who violate the court order.
A fifth bill would waive liability if a motorist negligently causes injury or death to an individual obstructing vehicular traffic on a public road, street, or highway.
The four bills relating directly to protest do not criminalize those protests, as the proposed changes relate to acts that are already prohibited by law.
Gee, one page of cliffy has so many more impeachable offences on it than Trump does in his political career...and Cliffy is OBVIOUSLY by his own "admission by posting" GUILTY of every one of those offences too. I mean we have all the ACTUAL quotes and everything.
