Hate speech reporting law. Here it comes.

If two Democratic lawmakers have their way, Barack Obama's Justice Department will submit a report for action against any Internet sites, broadcast, cable television or radio shows determined to be advocating or encouraging "violent acts." This according to the text of a new bill from Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y.  The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 "would create an updated comprehensive report examining the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, race, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation and create recommendations to address such crimes," stated a news release from Markey's office.

I wonder if this here blog will make the cut?

I guess "Hate Crime Reporting Act" sounded better on paper than "Fuck the First Amendment Act".

Hi Alyric.

Sounds better than the "Shut the Fuck Up And Get Back To Work Peons!" act too.
