Sassy Liberty AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

Freedom of assembly, sometimes used interchangeably with the freedom of association, is the individual right or ability of people to come together and collectively express, promote, pursue, and defend their ideas. The right to freedom of association is recognized as a human right, a political right and a civil liberty.

The right to speak freely under the first amendment was something that many Americans took for granted as their due… until recently.

Lately, many anti-American leftist progressive organizations led by Communist George Soros, have abused this right by blocking highways and freeways.  This, in turn, wreaks economic havoc on cities and towns across America with the BLM and their counterparts use of intimidation and violence against the American citizenry.  One only need look at the rioting in Charlotte, Minnesota, Baton Rouge, Ferguson, and many others in the last few years.

Politicians are now working to pass laws in their efforts to “protect” American citizens from these violent thugs.  Though I am not real clear on how laws protect the average American citizen.  Looting, setting fire to public property or property not your own, causing harm to another, and a host of other things these terror groups are guilty of are ALREADY illegal. Why are politicians not encouraging Americans to arm themselves for self-defense instead?  Well, because that’s not what politicians do.

According to Zero Hedge

Indiana passed a bill on Wednesday that authorizes police officers to shut down highway protesting “by any means necessary.” S.B. 285, as it is known, obliges a public official to dispatch all available officers within 15 minutes of discovering any assembly of 10 or more people who are obstructing vehicle traffic. The bill then authorizes the responding officers to clear roads “by any means necessary.” 

Critics are calling it the “Block Traffic and You Die” bill, an apt name for a bill that has co-opted the phrase “any means necessary,” used famously in speech delivered by Malcolm X during the Civil Rights movement, turning it into a threat against government dissent (with no apparent awareness of the irony).

S.B. 285 is among a collection of increasingly hostile ‘anti-obstruction’ laws that have been quietly submitted in states around the nation over the past few months. A report by The Intercept published Wednesday tracked five such anti-protest laws introduced by Republican lawmakers in different states, four of which are currently pending.

…..among them is House Bill N. 1203, a bill introduced earlier this month by North Dakota lawmaker Keith Kempenich in response to the Dakota Access Pipeline Protests. The bill would exempt motorists who hit demonstrators with their cars from any liability in cases where the victims were “obstructing vehicular traffic on a public road, street, or highway.”

Also this month, Minnesota State Representative Kathy Lohmer led the effort on submitting H.F. 322, a bill that would re-classify obstructing highway traffic from a misdemeanor to a “gross misdemeanor” and would authorize government units to sue protesters for “public safety response costs related to unlawful assemblies.”

The proposed legislation is strikingly reminiscent of Washington State Senator Eric Ericksen’s proposal to punish protesters as ‘economic terrorists,’ which Anti-Media first reported on in November.

All of the proposed laws share a common trait in that they were all adopted in response to a major protest event in that state.  These so-called ‘obstruction bills’ in the wrong hands could simply be nothing more than efforts to squash any government dissent, essentially doing away with our 1st amendment right to speak out against a tyrannical government. 

First and foremost is the Federal Grounds and Buildings Improvement Act of 2011, known as H.R 347.

H.R.-347 is a revision of a 1971 federal trespassing law that made it a crime to “willfully and knowingly” remain in an area under Secret Security protection. H.R. 347 removes the word “willingly,” a legal technicality that effectively lowers the bar on the mental state required to be found guilty under the law.

These are indeed scary times we are living in.
