Dem Rep. Lieu: "I Would Love To" Regulate Free Speech, But It's Better In The Long Run Not To.
Real Clear Politics ^ | December 12, 2018 | Ian Schwartz

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."

This dimwitted leftist-fascist lowlife needs a grey uniform w/ red piping, and a tall hat with a plume. And 10-15yrs of an 8x10 cell.

What an un-American disgrace he is. Is he the second generation of immigrants? They are getting a very bad reputation in America.

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...”

Just WOW.

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

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.

Ted Lieu (D-CA) said Wednesday that he "would love to be able to regulate the content of speech,"

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?

This anti-American, Lieu, needs to find another country to ruin.

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 can’t legally control speech, but if the liberals could control ngo’s then the ngo’s could control speech for the government.

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.
