Conservatives to the Rescue...

Representative Peter King (R-NY), the incoming chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, has done what we (well, we liberals) knew that fascist conservative Republicans were bound to do: classify inconvenient speech as terrorism.

Rep[rehensible] King has sent letters to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Attorney General Eric Holder claiming that WikiLeaks should be classified as a foreign terrorist organization, and that its founder, Julian Assange, should be considered a terrorist and prosecuted under the Espionage Act.

In King’s own words, the release of diplomatic cables was “worse than a military attack.” He wants to classify WikiLeaks as a terrorist organization so that the US can “seize their funds and go after anyone who provides them with any help or contributions or assistance whatsoever.”

In other words, King wants to outlaw investigative journalism as terrorism. It’s nice to be reminded that Democrats can’t hold a candle to the kings of tyranny on the right. Expect more wonderful examples of Republican douchebaggery now that they have a House majority and won’t only be wasting everyone’s time just bitching and filibustering 24/7.

  2. Oh, I know. It's also hilarious when we get "Bible Study" ads when posting about atheism, or "jobs in law enforcement" when discussing police abuse.
