EHHH! OHH! Fuggegaboutit!
EL Duce is here to protect you from scary things like flags.
ALBANY — Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a bill into law aimed at banning the sale of “hate symbols” such as the Confederate flag or the swastika on state property — even while admitting the new edict might clash with the First Amendment and be struck down as unconstitutional.
Communist flags are still legal of course.
The new” law “— effective immediately — prohibits the sale of hate symbols on public grounds including state and local fairs, and also severely limits their display unless deemed relevant to serving an educational or historical purpose. OH, I have an idea how it might be flown in an educational purpose..
But Cuomo said the rule likely needs “certain technical changes” so the Empire State doesn’t get caught treading upon free speech protections codified in the Constitution’s First Amendment. But why let that stop you ? You never let it before.
“This country faces a pervasive, growing attitude of intolerance and hate — what I have referred to in the body politic as an American cancer,” Cuomo wrote in his approval message. He is right about that but not in the way he thinks.
“By limiting the display and sale of the confederate flag, Nazi swastika and other symbols of hatred from being displayed or sold on state property, including the state fairgrounds, this will help safeguard New Yorkers from the fear-installing effects of these abhorrent symbols.”I’m sure the yankees feel safer already.
What I wouldn’t give to have that fake tough guy mook alone in a room for 10 minutes.
