Stand with Ukraine
Man, if you go on Twitter, you’ll find Conservatives lumping Palestinians and Hamas together, when Hamas and Palestinians are two different types of people.
That happens alot with them (And even with a few people here).Everytime someone on the left fucks up they are more then happy to obsess over it, but whenever someone on their side fucks up or does something shitty, it’s always “DOGWHISTLE!” “They are not one of us!” “IT’S A DAMN DIRTY LEFTIST TRYING TO MAKE US LOOK BAD!”
The bills would require fact checkers to register with the office of the state’s secretary of state, and to insure themselves with a $1 million bond against the possibility of fines in the amount of $1,000 any time state officials find something has been incorrectly reported. The legislation would also allow anyone to sue fact checkers for “wrongful conduct” that violates Michigan state laws.
The lead sponsor of the bills, Rep. Matt Maddock, introduced the idea last Thursday — three days after World Press Freedom Day.
Maddock and his wife, Meshawn Maddock, who is co-chair of the state’s Republican Party, have failed several fact checks of their own, including over statements they have made downplaying the seriousness of the coronavirus pandemic and falsely alleging that there was election fraud in the state during the 2020 elections.
The legislation, if passed, would likely violate the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. It would also likely violate Michigan’s own state Constitution, which reads:“Every person may freely speak, write, express and publish his views on all subjects, being responsible for the abuse of such right; and no law shall be enacted to restrain or abridge the liberty of speech or of the press.”
