VA Bill Would Criminalize Criticism of Governor and Associates

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam

by Matt Palumbo

It’s another day, another crazy proposed bill in Virginia. While the state has been making headlines for their assault on the Second Amendment, that’s hardly the only bullet point on their agenda.

The state doesn’t have much respect for the Second Amendment, and we’re about to see if their attitude is the same towards the First. Bill HB 1627 is titled “Threats and harassment of certain officials and property; venue,” and was introduced by Democrat Jeffrey M. Bourne on January 16th. [Bold emphasis, mine]

HB 1627’s summary as introduced reads: [The bill] 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. In addition, threats to damage property may be prosecuted in the City of Richmond if the property is owned by the Commonwealth and located in the Capitol District.

    Just another example of the reality that it is the Democrats who are the very fascists that they claim the Republicans are. Why is this reality not being shouted from every possible podium?

    Black-face, baby-killing and gun-grabbing Virginia Governor Northam and his twisted pals all need to be taken out behind the barn for a practical education. Oh, and throw in Sleepy, crooked Joe Biden as well.

    Wow – just wow.
