One top Congressional Democrat just put forward one horrible bill unlike any other.
And Tucker Carlson just called them out on national television.
And what he had to say about this Democrat’s bill will leave conservatives seeing red.
With the new Congress having been sworn in, members are submitting legislation on everything from energy to education.
But there’s one Democrat-backed bill that was just put forward that will make conservatives’ skin crawl.
And this evil legislation was so bad that Tucker Carlson himself took the bill, and its sponsor, to task on national television.
Here’s what Carlson had to say about the Leading Against White Supremacy Act of 2023, carried by Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee.
“It’s not an exaggeration to say this single bill would do more to criminalize speech, previously constitutionally guaranteed speech, than any other piece of legislation that has been proposed in the entire history of this country,” says Carlson.
Carlson is pointing to language in Jackson Lee’s bill that makes it a Federal offense to engage in anything to promote “White supremacy” without defining what constitutes “White supremacy” in the bill.
And knowing how the Left has treated conservatives in recent years, anything that opposes their agenda now constitutes “White supremacy” in their eyes.
“The First Amendment still applies to them, but not to anyone who doesn’t vote for them. That’s the definition of tyranny. It’s horrifying. It’s a direct attack on the Bill of Rights, on our core freedoms guaranteed by the U.S. government for 250 years,” adds Carlson.
Tucker Carlson’s response to Sheila Jackson Lee’s bill is so forceful because of how dangerous it is.
It effectively criminalizes any speech which Democrats could determine ferments “White supremacy” without bothering to define what that even means.
And the slippery slope doesn’t stop there.
“All that’s required under this piece of legislation [to send you to jail], is that your political opinions ‘could as determined by a reasonable person, motivate actions by a person predisposed to engaging in a White supremacy inspired hate crime’,” adds Carlson.
With such a broad definition given, Democrats have now crafted legislation that would effectively overturn freedom of speech in the name of combating “hate speech” which happens to conveniently align with their own political agenda.
And they are using racism as cover to justify it, by suggesting that if the American people do not get onboard with this bill, they themselves are guilty of perpetuating “White supremacy”.
This classic “Catch 22” is a typical act that Democrats pull in Congress, as well as in state legislative houses across the country.
And it has led to a growing trend whereby every single political group in the country, save self-described Far-Left Liberals, have reported that they have felt pressured to self-censor their political opinions for fear of backlash.
The irony here is that the same group of people who have done the most work to destroy the 1st Amendment are the only ones who feel protected enough to speak their mind whenever they see fit.
And now, Democrats like Sheila Jackson Lee are working to take those constitutional protections away.
