State Senator Robert Ford of South Carolina wants to pass a law that would make profanity illegal in public. Movie theaters, Libraries, the corner store. Everywhere. What’s more even the act of writing a profane word would be punishable by, get this, up to five years in prison and a $5000 fine.
In fact the wording of his bill would make it illegal to run any almost movie, sell most books and certainly would bring record sales to a grinding halt. Why is he doing it? The same reason Al Gore supported the fascist Parent’s Music Resource Center. It’s for the kids.
Funnier than this half-assed attack on the first amendment is the wailing by young “liberals” who are shocked their nanny-state party is full of nanny-staters. C’mon Democrats, we thought you were cool!
