Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) said Wednesday that he "would love to be able to regulate the content of speech," but it would be illegal to do so due to the First Amendment.
"I would love to be able to regulate the content of speech," Lieu said Wednesday on CNN. "The First Amendment prevents me from doing so. And that's simply a function of the First Amendment. But I think over the long run, it's better that government does not regulate the content of speech."

What an un-American disgrace he is. Is he the second generation of immigrants? They are getting a very bad reputation in America.
He “needs” worse than that . . .
Just a modern day democrat
Quite a week, it has been:
1. “I’d like to regulate speech”
2. “If you don’t turn in your guns, we might used NUKES on ya...”
Anyone who would dare threaten the Constitutional rights of all of us certainly doesn’t belong in Congress, let alone America
So this POS throws his true thoughts out there, then backtracks knowing the press will cover for his tyranny yet still gets his “idea’ out there
Now watch the ‘educators’ parrot Teddie’s idiocy
Interesting, how his first instinct is to crush the First Amendment. Not to preserve it. Always a good sign of a good commie
Call Mark Zuckerberg...he’ll teach you the ropes...and how to get away with it.
He immediately went back to his orifice and tweeted apologies, while pmsNBC excised the quote from their transcript, but it was caught on TV. Too late, scumbag Ted.
I guess Ted would enforce his, "No free speech" position by beating and killing people who said things he did not approve of.
There’d be daily executions in every towns’ square, sanctioned by him.
Trump should brign this up in his reelection rallies- Say “Here’s the true mindset of democrats folks” Then go on to quote Lieu and Swallwell or whatever his name is- and say “If you don’t value the constitutional protections our country affords you, then by all means vote democrat, but if you want to keep America great, then vote the only choice you have to keep it that way, republican”
Why don’t we do a trial run and censor his free speech?
oh wait- he wasn’t talking about an object rule of censorship- he meant subjective only- censoring those HE disagrees with-
I do l-i-k-e that!
Or move somewhere else where free speech is already regulated so he can engage in a love-fest with himself.
See my Tagline
I suggested that months ago
Go on the offensive. Don’t take their crap. Throw it right back in their ugly ass faces, esp those like Lieu, SwalloWell.
No More Mister Nice Guy. From Clinton on, they’re covered in warts
What he really meant is that the government cant legally control speech, but if the liberals could control ngos then the ngos could control speech for the government.
The enemy within.
There are so many thousands/millions, and they’re taking their masks off. If I said what we should do to them, I’d get in trouble, here at FR.
