New Crime -- "Muzzling"

The lamestream media told you:

A student was sent home and suspended for wearing a t-shirt that said "NRA." Other students were reprimanded, forced to apologize, suspended, or denied space in the class yearbook for criticizing homosexuality, posing with a shotgun-competition trophy, mentioning Jesus, saying, "That's so gay," and making other insensitive or politically incorrect remarks.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

The increasingly frequent crime of political-correctness censorship needs a good name, and the Uninvited Ombudsman recommends "muzzling," for its simplicity and directness.

Muzzling means interfering with a person's sacred First Amendment freedom of speech for partisan political purposes.

Political correctness, a basic socialist tool for controlling thought and manipulating public policy, should never be allowed to trump your First Amendment right to free speech. Anyone attempting to do so should face a serious violation -- and it turns out a suitable federal law is already on the books.

That would be 18 USC §242, which basically says:

Anyone who, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, custom or regulation, willfully deprives any person of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States, shall be fined, or imprisoned for up to one year, or both.

If bodily injury results, or if the violation includes the use or attempted or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosive or fire, the prison term rises to up to ten years.

If death results, or if such acts include kidnapping, attempted kidnapping, aggravated sexual assault, attempted aggravated sexual assault, or an attempt to kill, the violator may be fined, imprisoned for any term of years up to life, or put to death.

All that's needed now is for Americans everywhere to start noticing instances of muzzling or attempted muzzling, and pointing it out. "Be careful, ma'am, you've muzzled that student and could go to prison for it."

All it will take is one cooperative states' attorney and one case to begin to put a chill on the runaway train of politically correct suppression of freedom of speech.

Don't get caught muzzling anyone. Point out muzzling -- loudly -- when you see it. If you're the victim of such hateful intolerance, look into filing charges.
