Now the wonders of the New York State Senate want to ban, formally by statute, speech of which they disapprove.
A New York Senate bill if passed would criminalize the promotion of content that “includes a false statement of fact or fraudulent medical theory that is likely to endanger the safety or health of the public.”
This is rank censorship. Whose definition of “likely?” Whose definition of “fraudulent theory?”
Here are just a few items that are threatened by this censorship:
- Political ads/speech
- Exaggeration for effect
This is an all too typical effort by Progressive-Democrats to control our speech.
O brave new world, that has such people in ‘t in this new year of New York.
