The Noose Tightens: Arizona Law Criminalizes Internet Speech that Would “Terrify, Intimidate, Threaten, Harass, Annoy or Offend”

Do you LOVE America?


    Arizona House Bill 2549 has been sent to Governor Janice Brewer’s desk and, once signed, will expand the State’s telephone harassment law to include all electronic or digital communications.

    Telephone harrassment laws generally apply to two individuals speaking on a telephone, but according to opponents of the new bill there is a danger to free speech because its reach essentially encompasses all digital communications:

    … because the bill is not limited to one-to-one communications, H.B. 2549 would apply to the Internet as a whole, thus criminalizing all manner of writing, cartoons, and other protected material the state finds offensive or annoying.

    One must assume that, as Infowars’ Steve Watson points out, “the law, which is being pushed under the guise of an anti-bullying campaign would mean that anything communicated or published online that was deemed to be ‘offensive’ by the state, including editorials, illustrations, and even satire could be criminally punished.

    Facebook would be an obvious target of this legislation, as we have seen numerous recent tragedies surrounding teens that have been bullied on the site by classmates and who then committed suicide. But what well meaning legislators fail to understand is that the broad language they allowed in the law makes it possible for this legislation to be applied across the entire social web sphere including commenting areas, forums, chat rooms, and any digital venue at which people congregate.

    Under this legislation the very act of writing (or recording) an opinion piece, criticism or politically incorrect viewpoint could come under fire and lead to prosecution as a misdemeanor or worse.

    Offending someone in any of these digital meeting places to the point where they feel threatened or annoyed with you now makes you a criminal if your communications is sent from or received in the State of Arizona:

    Section 1. Section 13-2916, Arizona Revised Statutes, is amended to
    13-2916. Use of an electronic or digital device to terrify,
    intimidate, threaten, harass, annoy or offend; classification; definition

    A. It is unlawful for any person, with intent to terrify, intimidate,  threaten, harass, annoy or offend, to use ANY ELECTRONIC OR DIGITAL DEVICE and use any obscene, lewd or profane language or suggest any lewd or lascivious act, or threaten to inflict physical harm to the person or property of any person. It is also unlawful to otherwise disturb by repeated anonymous ELECTRONIC OR DIGITAL COMMUNICATIONS the peace, quiet or right of privacy of any person at the place where the COMMUNICATIONS were received.

    B. Any offense committed by use of a telephone AN ELECTRONIC OR  DIGITAL DEVICE as set forth in this section is deemed to have been committed at either the place where the COMMUNICATIONS
    18 originated or at the place where the COMMUNICATIONS were received.

    Furthermore, you can be charged with a Class 3 felony if prosecuted under Arizona’s revised stalking laws (also part of House 2549), a crime that carries a 2.5 year minimum prison sentence. Like telephone harassment laws, stalking has now been broadly defined by the ‘course of conduct’ you employ while you annoy or offend people:

    C. For the purposes of this section:

    1. “Course of conduct”:
    (i) Maintaining visual or physical proximity to a specific person or directing verbal, written or other threats, whether express or implied, to a specific person on two or more occasions over a period of time, however short.

    A “digital” device to surveil a specific person can come in the form of not just physical equipment that you follow someone with, but digital devices that include technologies such as twitter, RSS comment feeds, or social activity tracking applications. Additionally, these software applications can exist on physical devices like smart phones and tablets, meeting even the traditional definitions of surveillance devices. If you engage in internet conversation as it exists today using these digital devices – by simply responding in a forum or comment thread, or publishing a blog article online – you could very well be charged with stalking if your activities fall under harassment statutes.  This example shows just how broadly Arizona’s law can be interpreted.

    The implications are mind boggling, because in essence, Arizona has just made it possible for any political, ideological, or spiritual speech that annoys, offends or intimidates someone to be not only removed from public view, but prosecuted under harassment laws.

    The last time we checked, it is exactly this annoyingly offensive speech that the First Amendment of The United States is intended to protect.

      1. In my day, when there was a bully you dealt with it personally. Usually after school at the flagpole. Of course now if you do that there are lawyers involved before anyone’s fists fly. Shame, the bruises hurt but they went away. Now these kids are forced to internalize everything and have no way of letting out their frustrations.

        • The pussification of America.

          • What’s happening to America? You mean I can’t call your phone 3,000 times and swear at you? Or threaten your family???

            • we already HAVE laws to deal with threatening a family and laws against calling someone 3000 times………….why do we need this one? i would bet that there are laws against EVERYTHING targeted in this bill already, but no one will enforce them. that’s our country’s biggest problem. the law isn’t enforced any more unless you can’t afford a lawyer….fatcats break the laws with impunity while the little guy goes to prison or pays fat fines to keep the gubmint machine well fed.

          • On a related note…

            Congress just launched another stealth attack on the Internet

            The End of Anonymous Comments?

            Joe Lieberman is proposing an amendment to section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. This amendment to that law would change that by stripping out the immunity and leaving web hosts potentially liable.

            A blogger or forum host would be responsible for defamatory comments by anonymous commenters.


            • And to think this retard commie was running for POTUS….they are so self important…they think just because “they” vote on somthing it becomes binding on us? what a pig….nothing personal against real porcine hogs… 🙂
              …as some wise person here once said…”I do not consent and I waive the bennies”…take your decrees and shove “em fedboy!

            • You know, it isn’t the Zionist shill, America hating whack job Lieberman who scares me most. It’s the brain dead CT morons who keep re-electing this monumental piece of shit.

              Its going to get to the point soon where, since you’re going to be locked away for life for making a comment that might be construed as mean or offensive online anyway, you might as well just go ahead and ______ a few folks like him on the way (I’ll let y’all decide how to fill in that blank).

              C’mon…I was going to fill it in with “buy a cup of coffee for”…what were you thinking? OK, I lied…I was really going to fill it in with “edify and commend” 😉

        • Might as well park a police car outside my house, because I intend to annoy a whole bunch of anal glands this upcoming year. If Brewer signs this illegal alien lover bill, she should be elected senator, so we can send her dumb ass to washington, where she will blend in nicely with the rest of the assholes there…

          • This was part of what McCain wanted in his campaign bill. It gave incumbents freedom from any criticism sixty days prior to an election. As an aside it sure looks like Obama is beginning to look and act alot like Fidel. Get ready for some bad stuff. I wonder if Obama will invite Fidel to his next inaguration. Obama will probably be around way past the next four year term and Fidel can give him some pointers on crushing the opposition..

        • Where is the ACLU or the Goldwater Institute for that matter, when you need them?

          • The ACLU is ALWAYS ready to defend your right to kiddy porn.

            • What else would you expect from a defacto jewish organization? ..aside from criminalization of public religious displays, and suits against enforcement of immigration law, etc. They are trying to shut US up.

          • …off looking for “normal”people/activities to harrass/intimidate and make money from…Ive worked with the ACLU….useless is an understatement!

          • You are an ignoramus. Orgs like the Jewish ADL, NAACP, ACLU, AIPAC, and SPLC have spearheaded these anti-speech anti-“hate” initiatives. They invented these ideas.

      3. Saying Hi can be construed as offending to a person who doesn’t want to be addressed.

        The law is too all encompassing.

        But hey, Use it to it’s fullest. I am hoping to send hundreds of anti-American liberals to jail. 🙂

        • Absolutely correct. I find all such speech annoying. I think every time a member of the Arizona legislature speaks he is annoying someone and should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

          Maybe then they will figure out what they are doing wrong.

        • There’s only one way to fix these idiots and that’s to flood their court system with 30,000 offenders. Get into their pocket book and watch them piss backwards.

        • There was no “mistake” in the broad language used.

      4. wow, just wow….

        what’s next?

        Oops, forget I asked that…

      5. I live in Arizona , So when I get crapy customer service over the phone or or worse I just have to sit there and take it ? Lord save me from these fools here in my state ! Oh Wait a second no I did not say that , I don’t want to go to jail .

        • Sights will simply have sign-in release forms

          But more specifically, in any state (presuming this is a test run) where this type of law is passed, any individual can contact their “fill-in the blank” branch of government. If we are offended by that response, whatever it may be, then we press charges.

          This goes both ways—–flood em with paperwork

        • now-Nina. I my humble opinion, you can’t have it both ways. We must go forward. To quote the Bill of Rights to our rulers is like quoting the Sermon on the Mount to the religious right. My native ancestors were aware that the occupiers’ rights were not extended to the original occupants of the land. And so, like under any totalitarian police state, we will have to communicate in code. The plantation slaves used to sing about Pharoah’s Army,quoting the gospel….singing the gospel…we have to remember that they aren’t going to hire people to eavesdrop, that would provide employment…they will develop software, encoded to re-act to certain key words…so, Phuck is a step in the right direction…how about Bless Censorship! Bless the NWO! Bless Man! bless the bomb!…this would confuse the machine…we have to show that the Wizard of OZ, when you take away his Matri- his fear machine, his money machine, is just a frightened little man. Meanwhile, as you say, we watch the noose tightening. It’s a good time to head for the desert, pick some peyote, sit down under a starry desert sky, and call upon our cousins from the constellation sirius…the Hopis call it the Blue Kachina. We have allies in our struggle.

      7. I’ve been trying to explain the statist MO for years now. I can actually predict legislation before its written. The entire harassment/ bullying unlicensed service campaigne was just propaganda to build support for laws like this. Harassment and bullying are artificial terms and laws based on them should be repealed. Enforcement of clear cut assault and or battery laws which already exist is what people need to grasp and stand behind. But this is insufficient for the statist whose goal is to control your every action and thought.

      8. Seems like this statute C 1(ii) could be used against the fed corp by the State of Arizona for spying on the American people. Course we know that isn’t it’s real intent.

        • For the record, We all need to understand that State of Arizona Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of U.S.Inc. therof.
          ALL States @ the political level endorse their parent Corp. that is the U.S.Inc.
          This is a testing ground/distraction/their fear of loss of control.
          The public thinks their state acts soley in their interests.
          Each States ultimately answer to U.S. Inc.

      9. LoL, yet another joker bill with another law not to be obeyed. This is a direct infringement upon the your freedom of speech as defined by the First Amendment of the Constitution. I wouldn’t bother with this shit at all. When you go into court on this one, go pro se and fuck them hard. Better know what you’re doing, but I can guarantee you this kind of shit has no standing. Whether these pricks want to acknowledge the Constitution or not, that’s irrelevant, it STANDS AS THE LAW OF THE LAND!

        I suggest people learn how to use it, EXERCISE YOUR AUTHORITY, and stop get steamrolled. The criminals claiming to have authority over you, have ZERO authority over anything. The only reason people even listen to them is because they point a gun at you. Learn their game and learn how to shred them in court.

        Laws like this are not laws at all. Any law that directly contradicts the core principles of the Constitution are not laws that apply to you, unless you consent to it. STOP CONSENTING and tell these sad pukes to pound sand.

        Finally, let me violate this horse shit law ahead of time and tell the authors of it to: “Fuck you wormy little whores and your pathetic doodling. You lying, law twisting, Constitution killing pricks are not worth taking a shit on, let alone acknowledging as fellow human beings. You sad sacks of shit should go take a long walk off a short pier and leave the living to those of us that value life, since it’s evident by your tampering, you do not. May you rot in hell for all eternity.”

        • Several grammatical errors in this, but when I read this story all I saw was red. Man, this type of shit pisses me off. I stand by my statement though. This is no law to be obeyed.

          • Go for it JoeRepublic! Who gives a crap about spelling. The thought is true. It’s like this damn ObamaCare, our obeying it confirms it. The latest from Obama ‘that nine unelected judges cannot supercede a law passed by a majority of congress’. What a nazi. Besides we need the states to completely rewrite of the constitution to to define away all those powers the courts gave the government and the framers did not.

            The constitution is a contract among the states. The power resides in the states. And in us.

            • Please, no rewrite of the Constitution. The document is fine as it is. You will only get something worse. For being a constitutional law student, Obama apparently did not learn much. The whole point of the Supreme Court is to strike down unconstitutional laws.They are part of the checks and balances put in the Constitution to prevent one branch of govt from becoming too powerful. Although this doesn’t seem to be working in King Obama’s case.

            • JRS-He(bho) knows EXACTLY what he is doing. The old saying goes-“study your enemy”. His enemy IS the constitution.

        • The idea is that they don’t expect it to be obeyed, at least not right now.

          The idea is that it sits there, quietly. Then, if the authorities aren’t quite sure they have a case against you for something else, they can always pore through the transcripts/recordings, and invoke this little puppy against you.

      10. Arizona use to be such a nice place too. Hard to believe it’s ended up this way. It will be interesting to see how the law takes effect and who’s first to go to jail because they hurt someones feelings. Good Lord, where did common since go? Maybe build the fence a tad higher and leave Arizona to the wetbacks…

        • Bill: No way, no how. If Brewer signs the bill there will be legal challenges to it, to which, it cannot stand.

          This is just a “jobs bill” for attorneys.

          • serves all you iGNORANT AMERICANS RIGHT HAHA!

          • YAH YAH YAH every one says this says that BUT DO NOTHING ABOUT IT NO wonder AMERICA IS DONE FOR lets do this lets do THAT WELL start doing somthing for your selfs ! almost to late or is it already talk is cheep folks start Acting o wate you all ARE actors AHAHAHAHAHHA SHEEP get back in LINE!

            • well take action insted of talking online about these things make S H I T HAPPEN go to washington use your god given VOICE in numbers! this will be going on for years all this talk! start doing somthing about all this MESS people we need action NOW what is every one waiting for SHIT SANDWICH! move your PUSSYIES nOW

      11. Well, I feel terrified, intimidated, threatened, harassed, annoyed AND OFFENDED by this law. I guess I will have to bring charges and prosecute the state.

        • WE need to start targeting the assholes who introduce these treasonous bills and get them out of government permanently.

          Here’s hoping WE can make an example out of one of those SOB’s real soon!

      12. Ok , new rule..If the state passes a law, any law that is bullshit like this…those of us who do not agree dont pay any taxes to that state.

        see how long they like no pay checks!

        I used to like Arizona..keep thinking like that and see how long you have a job.
        If states are allowed to infringe on our rights like this, this country is so done

      13. Couldn’t agree more. Taught my daughter that very lesson when she was young…….not worrying about her being bullied or offended. Critical thinking is being bred out of our society as the government keeps telling everyone they have the answer to all problems. I agree with another article’s post that said “you can only trust the government when it says it’s going to kill you.” Man up, buck up and look to God.

      14. Man, I’m screwed. I annoy people via the internet on a daily basis. 🙁

        • I wonder when the goverment is going to realize they can not take away our God given right to be an asshole.

          • I would not bet on that one. A few years ago a woman having a private conversation with her mother made a comment mother making fun of Mexicans. An off duty sheriffs deputy overheard it and took issue with the comment and arrested her.The long and short is that a jury of morons convicted her of hate speech. She was jailed as a result. Don’t ever say they can’t do something when most of our fellow citizens are morons and will convict anyone of anything.

      15. At this rate..

        we’ll eventually need permits from local,state and federal governments just to touch a p.c.keyboard..

        never mind the right to speak in public and redress our grievances..

        oops..that’s already been enacted as law.

        “children(sheep)should be seen but not heard”


      16. sharia law in America – the “holy one” replaced with anyone who “feels” bad because of what’s written, said or posted and the “infidel” is now that person(s) who has anything less than flattering to say about that aforementioned “anyone”… sad day in America, folks… a sad, sad day…

      17. Remember shtfplan commenters, When bubba asks if you want to be the wife or the husband, just start swinging, take out his knee caps, and put all you got into it.

        • … @KEV ACTUALLY WHAT BIG 350 pound BUBBA asks you when you enter your new cell home behind bars is …

          “Do you wanna Fight? or Make Sweet Prison Love?”

          … ummmmm Got KY?

          Welcome to the nwo prison planet! Prisoner #your social sec number goes here … pls bend reach and spread!

          You need to be checked for illegal thoughts of FREEDOM of SPEECH AND PERSONAL PRIVACY LIBERTY!!!

          say aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!!

      18. What bothers me is what other states will say “Hey, that’s a good idea,” and do likewise. Government at all levels has become despotic. Even the mayor of El Paso has become quite the tyrant in recent days. I’m through with people saying there is “expertise” in keeping the same people in office.

      19. I am so sick of all the offensive, pervasive, afronts to our freedom of speech. Nible, nibble, nibble…a little here, a little there and eventually it will all be gone. Everything, all freedom except what the government decides is best for us.

        Here is what I do as I do not depend on anybody. Put things up for a rainy day. Teach my family what is RIGHT.
        Teach my family to defend themselves. All of what it takes to feed myself, gardening, hunting, fishing, preserving the food, hard work to accomplish a goal. All of this I do in the hopes that it will catch on within my immediate family. Good conservative values.

        In the fall, I’ll vote and hope for the best. Hopefully that, marxist/leninist/commie/pinko/liberal/socialist/college-puke/chicago/foreign-born/no-right-tolead-me, piece of work gets elected out of office.

        But he is just a symptom of the problem in these modern times, as we all know.

        This past weekend I spent all three days in my shop welding for peeps. I’m trying to make my product/distiller as sturdy as possible, cux you will need it.

        Yesterday a guy at work said, “I’m so angry (talking on the state of US, someone else said, “No you are not, you are just scared”!

        He was right

        Just some thoughts…

        Terry W. Reed

      20. The Genocide Convention Implementation Act of 1987 was signed and ratified by Pres Ronald Reagan on Nov 4th 1988. It allows the USA to be part of the 97 other countries aligning with the United Nations on this issue. From what I have gathered so far, it sounds all warm and fuzzy on the outside, but has deeper meanings that could lead to prison and fines for people speaking out against any group such as homosexuals and religious groups,etc. In Canada, there is a law associated with this act, that makes it a crime, punishable by two years in prison, by “saying” anything derogatory against homos. I guess it’s a good thing my statement posted a couple weeks ago on this site wasn’t said while visiting Canada. “I hate faggots and……” was not exactly what I meant to say. I actually meant “I hate what they are doing to this American society”. I know some gay men and women;not personally, and don’t really think they are bad people. It’s when they try to push their lifestyle and agenda down our childrens throats via the school education system that gripes my ass. If they want to live that way and possibly burn in Hell for it, then have a good trip; but keep it in the closet until they leave on that LOng Black Train. Anyways, back to the Genocide Treaty. “Genocide” is not only causing physical harm; but can also mean causing “mental harm”. The Vatican has put their backing and statements regarding this Treaty via Pope John Paul II, and more recently Benedict. I’ve read the statements and the underlying tones are basically saying they are totally on board with this and with taking it a step further via the UN as a way of full implementation along with the New World Order. Now, isn’t that just bringing in the new way of thinking for everybody to jump on board. If the Pope is behind it, then it must be all good! Bull CaCa!…. It’s prophecy being fulfilled right before our eyes but coming at us thru the back door.

      21. Screw you Arizona and the Donkey you rode in on.

      22. While we where asleep, and the media was talking about the up comming health care decision by “the supreme court”

        I’m not a lawyer BUT-

        “The right of the people to be secure in their persons,houses,papers, and effects from unreasonable SEARCH and seizure SHALL NOT be violated…………”

        These so called “supreme court judges” are a discrace.
        The treachery grows by the year, then month.

        If this does not convince a man or woman, that america is turning into a police state NOTHING WILL!!!

        While the sheople sleep, we fiddle.

        • I forgot an overview. This makes strip searches “constitutional” FOR ANY OFFENSE!!

      23. nothing can be more offensive than the smell of flesh in the air. But hey ,maybe they can write a law for that too… wouldnt ya think animal activists would have taken on the bulling issue among all the critters fighting over a piece of @ss, cannibalism ,the 10 million bugs an hour killed by hit and run… the vandalism of birdnests and crowes stealing jewelery and such while your swimming.and mowing of lawns after rain wiping out fresh flowers before bees get to eat. usually an attempt to stop something entices more to do it.

      24. Here is another one. SEC hil clintbone “loses” a sup court case. Did she lose? Why did THIS go to the so called supreme court? basicaly it overturns a law(dictated rule in 2002) That someone born in jerusalem can put-“born in country A” on an american passport. These pdf’s are in lawyer mumbo jumbo double speak, and are meant to confuse the people so we don’t know, or understand what the hell they are saying. I suggest if you are interested in ANY supreme court case, to search the case and read ATLEAST 3-4 different people take on it, so you do not fall for any blatant propaganda.

      25. Well. you know what they say. “The road to hell is paved with good intentions” Stalin also really loved all the Useful Idiots.`

        • and they guy who has the site has an agenda

        • OOOPS, he changed the web page from days ago when I saw it, just a link now!!

          • to the dessending opinion.



      27. What ever happened to “Sticks and Stones”??

        • To Diad AMEN, was going to say the same exact thing, I was raised on that little motto, people are all wwhiney about everthing a bunch of baby Husheys’ running around crying about what so n so thinks or said…grow up! who gives a rats a$$ what people think about ya anyway, most of the time the one saying negative crap are those with issues they are tryin to hide. I attribute all this junk to the shrinks “how does this make yoiu feel?” YOu own your feelings blah blah blah What happen to pick yourself up by the boot straps ans keep on keepin on? What happen to get over it, when did we as people get soooo sensitive ..shoot I am all 4 a pity party once in awhile but Geez this is soooooo crazy laws to not hurt feelings, when does this madness stop, now I know I have fallen into a rabbit hole and darn I did not even drink the magic kool aid that Alice did which makes it crazier

      28. Well if we go to jail or prison for offending someone, may as well kill ’em and get it over with, everyone needs to quit being so thin skinned

      29. Totally untrue. Click on the link. Read the bill. It deals only with person to person communication. It can’t be used to silence conservative talk radio or censor political speech. It’s a good thing and not a bad thing.

      30. We all need to realize that the state gov is just an extension of the fed corp. Most legislation is written in legalese that the common American cannot understand. This is intentional. And don’t expect a lawyer to translate it for you. The American Bar Association was formed in 1878 after the gov was turned into a corp.The ABA lawyers are there to defend the corp statutes under English or Maritime law. America is no longer under common law as designated in the Constitution. This is how the King of the USA can get away with his Executive Orders. Since America has been declared a battlefield in the “War on Terror” the fed corp can seize any property as “booty” according to Maritime Law. I’m afraid there is only one solution to rid ourselves of the scourge that is known as “our govt”.

        • State goobermints are worse than the feds.

      31. Hey people ,, the fun part of this all…we dont have to let them fuck us like this if enough of us have any cajones.

        we are the jury, we are the people, we are the ones this will affect….but only if we the people allow it.

        time to get in their face, try jailing all the citizens, you know the ones that sign their f-ing paychecks..if we dont want this..than we start holding back their funding base..simple.

      32. “All concerns of men go wrong when they wish to cure evil with evil”

        Someone said this. Im not sure who. But Im sure they executed him.

      33. Using the standards proposed would any writings of Thomas Pane or the Federalist Papers be banned? It’s obvious that the Declaration of Independence at a minimum annoyed or offended King George.

        Did any of these people in political office take and pass Civics 1 or US History 1?

      34. This is just another move to control the internet since it poses a threat to the power elites. The MSM has lost its effectiveness at brain-washing the population through its non-stop bulls**t.
        The truth is out there on the net, though you have to dig to find it, and the “powers-that-be” will not tolerate it.
        Look for this sort of thing to become a federal imperative, not just at the state level.
        How do I get the hell out of here?

      35. So does this mean every time I see Obama on TV giving a speech, he can be charged with a crime for annoying and offending me?

      36. What the hell has happened to common sense? There are obvious forms of harassment and just someone torturing someone for the fun of it. It makes people’s freedom of speech come under walking on eggshells for danger of someone’s feelings being hurt. This country as well as most western countries were not meant to be some Soviet style police state where you had to worry about an opinion that comes out of your mouth. People that are outspoken come out with the best ideas, laws like this try to silence them and everyone to put them under the control of the state. The 3 monkeys; speak no evil, see no evil, hear no evil.

        Even when not directed at any one individual, whacked out laws such as in France prohibit the OFFENSE or HURTING A CERTAIN GROUP’S FEELINGS. Wasn’t it Brigitte Bardot that received some fine or something in France for talking against Muslims? A fine for expressing your opinion, what a crock, no a field of horse crap.

        Is Arizona, a state that only 4 out of 50 that allows freely carrying firearms, going to stoop down to some of the highly restrictive states of the east that watch every move you make? Why not just ban all cartoons that make fun of the prophet muhammad? All the while muslim radical nut baskets behead innocent people on videos for all the world to see. These groups surely don’t censor this type of dark age barbarism in their countries.

        A cartoon though of the prophet muhammad, someone dead for 1500 years, mounting a pig sends hundreds of thousands of Muslims into the streets rioting and WE have to be sensitive to them. They burn American flags on worldwide TV and someone that accidentally burns a couple of old worn old Qurans and they go ballasitic and call the United States the great satan. This is okay though because we are not suppose to hurt their feelings. Their expressions of opinion come in the form of physical executions, slowly sawing off an innocent person’s head and torture, but if any of us counter this with a cartoon or condemning their belief we are the ones that are the monsters. This is exactly what a law like this says, we don’t dare offend anyone or any group EVER. Even in other countries that are the sworn enemy.

        The thought that Arizona would even consider a law like this is to automatically censor a person before they even open their mouth is bewildering to me and I would think to most rational people.

      37. “Does not include constitutionally protected activity”

        Anyone miss that part of the law? Did you even read it?

        • yes, but what exactly is Constitutionally protected activity these days? And while one may think their digital activity is protected by the first amendment, this law specifically outlines what activity is not constitutionally protected (according to lawmakers’ interpretation), and includes all of the aforementioned points.



      38. A revolution is brewing…..

        • It needs to kick it in the ass..Its late

        • Yeah? Where? Not with the pussies we have in the US. As long as DWTS, pro sports and the malls are open or on the air all is well.

        • my father, who is now 83, talked about a 2nd revolution in the united states when he was a boy. he says, ” i never thought i would live to see it, but i just might”.

      39. … american cia chinese national agents in china attempt a COUP to take over the peoples republic of china and failed!

        And ooooohhh boy is the chinese hard-lined communist party sure p.o.’d at the Yale.Boy.Luvin NAMBLA run american cia!!!

      40.

          • @MAC ;0) NICE!!! RESPECT!!!

            • i originally posted that back in 2009, when Red Dawn was being filmed as a Chinese invasion… it was then put on hold due to studio financing issues… then, loe and behold, budget issues were resolved and the new edit was made public and the Chinese were replaced by …. North koreans! gotta be p.c. you know….

              It’s finally scheduled for release in november of this year..sweetness! Chicoms or NoKos, it’ll still be a fun movie to watch!

            • jackass.

            • @MAC-Kinda shows you who hollywood listens to, when a production team comes through a movie after it done to digitaly erase and do a make over the chinese symbols in the FINAL product. Since the fed stopped reporting on how MUCH foriegn(chinese aka commie) money is comming into the nation, I fear it is on a massive scale.I probably will watch this once it comes out though..


          • yass, while we’re on the subject of fear-mongering….here’s another stupid movie for the sheep…

            the first red dawn wasn’t impressive at all. this new one won’t be impressive, either…..

            FEAR MONGERING.

        • They Goose-step better than the Nazis, and the Soviets, but not as good as the North Koreans.

          • Infantry is obsolete. We will mow them down with drones and robots.

            • Tj, perhaps you should speak to a korean vet or two. They were running out of barrels for their machine guns, melting them, and the chinese just kept comming, and comming and comming up those bottlenecks. By the way, Iran just HIJACKED a drone controls and landed it(you forget about that? WTF ), perhapds one day a foe will have the capability to hijack them ALL, ALL AT ONCE, and turn them against their controlers. Remember alot of the electronics for ALL the types of drones come from CHINA!!!! Man will NEVER be obsolete. F^CK drones,F^CK robots, but you tj, have a nice day.

            • You don’t own the ground until the last Infantryman is gone.

        • …so what? where’s the invasion information? almost 3 minutes in, it’s just a bunch of soldiers marching around giving their handlers hard-ons. where’s the invasion? where does it say they’re coming and when?

          or are you JUST FEAR MONGERING?

        • I watched most of this. 5 things came to mind. 1- That scene in the dirty dozen, when sutherlands character asks something like- they can march, but can they fight 2-That german general that asked the swiss- What would you do if 500,000 german troops invaded? The reply was-we would all just shoot twice. 3- 1 and 2 answers the question(in my mind) why so much international commie money is going to the gun control movement in our country and internationaly. 4- NEVER underestimate an enemy. That kinda conterbalances 1 and 2. 5-I want to invade that group in the red dresses!!!

      41. Great, now we can prosecute Governor Brewer since she is annoying every time she opens her mouth.

      42. I’m pretty sure Tennessee has this law on the books for a few years now. They also wrote up the protest law in public building legislation.

      43. I’m sure the “legislators” were focused on the word INTENT..Does this mean before we can be prosecuted, or during the STATE has to PROVE INTENT?

      44. Fascists gone wild. America is about to be on full lock down. The cell doors are being shut, people. Get out while you still can. Time to seek residence abroad.

        • No Jimmy,

          The time is now, to grow a spine and a pair of cohones. And get ready to do your duty as a free man. Not to run like a gutless coward.

        • You cannot hide from the NWO. You must resist it and America is the best place to do that.

          What the elite fear most is the loss of political power which generates their wealth and special privileges.

          Join a Patriot organization now, like GOOOH, America First!, The Patriot Party, or the Constitution Party.

          90 million organized gun owners in America, communicating, volunteering, donating, and voting for NEW political parties can change the direction of America without firing a shot: restore the constitution to America, and put these treasonous bastards on the lower end of a rope.

          The penalty for TREASON is death! 🙂

          Pass it on!

      45. thats funny shit there ,that angola part.As for my kids….Im with you 100, I dont think REAL PARENTS will have problems, remember ..a dog can give birth,thats easy…

      46. all i can say is unreal. Id like to know who wrote the autual bill on obamacare and this bill, I wish we could get the people that actually write these and who puts what in them. id like to know, if you know what i mean

      47. They know exactly what they are doing with this and similar “legislation”, ghost-written BS, designed to do nothing but stifle dissent.

        AZ will likely only be a test-run for this, and the parasites in other states will point out how good it is, and run similar “bills” there. There is more:

        In NY, the school system is banning “offensive words”.

        In Oregon, a “Climatologist” has proclaimed that if you don’t believe global-warming is “man-made”, you are mentally ill, and should be treated as such. She is making the case to the UN.

        Ron Paul consistantly draws record crowds, only to be ignored by MSM, and the RNC. I will still “vote” for him, but we all know what is coming: another installation of Obummer, or one of the Re-puppets.

        We are only seeing very little in this regard. We are quickly running out of time to deal with these issues…

        • Justme,
          we really are running out of time, faster than most people can imagine. I just wonder how much more of this insidious shit Americans are going to tolerate, it is absolutely nauseating.

          • CJ,

            I wish I could answer that for you. Most people are trying harder every day to ignore reality. Soon, reality will visit them, and they must choose.

      48. Ah yes after the final passage of this Bill, any criticism of said Bill will be found annoying by the State and offenders will be prosecuted accordingly. Along with the truth,the freedom to communicate ones thoughts right or wrong, and any articulation that runs counter to the wishes of the State. Truly it has been said the road to hell was paved in good intentions.

      49. maybe I am going out on a limbe but does this new law app;y to people who are being surveid by google maps and google earth? Things that make you go “hmm” I bet that google will be ecempt from such a law . I know a couple tried to sue google becasue the street view on it you could see inside therir home, but the couple lost (surprise) but with a law like this on the books and if their was a really good attorney who could twist this a little bit it could be a landmark case against google, that would make this law dissapear REALLY fast ….I should have followed up with law school maybe I could have stayed honest and did some good for real people..shoulda coulda wouldavs

      50. …with liberty and justice for all… So, America, don’t you think it’s time to stand up to these assholes who keep stealing your liberties, or are you just going to sit there. I swear, the next idiot that tells me we are living in a free country, I’m gonna punch them right in the…ooopsy, my bad, this could be a felonious posting!!Nevermind, long live the party, long live the kenyan imposter in the white house, long live big brother, hell, we don’t need those pesky liberties anyway.

      51. Heck,if I dont offend/annoy or otherwise bother several persons a day Im losing my touch….especially politicians and their corporate supporters…I mean if they dont get offended by me or worse yet they speak well of me Ive really messed up somewhere!! just sayin… 🙂

      52. Huh, this is in a state where you can buy Automatic Weapons. Where you’ve got stores called Auto Weapons World (call it a candy store for the 2nd Amendment people). Sounds like too many of the Liberals from the Peoples Republik of Kalifornia have gone there. Sad, very very very sad.

      53. This is a stupid law…very stupid.

        Dumb lawmakers write if you “offend” someone electronically, you’re a bad person and a criminal.

        How stupid is that?

        Offend? What’s the definition of that?

        See, I told you they are stupid. Actually, they are also guilty of this very law they wrote and hope to pass.
        You see, their stupidity offends me greatly.

        Throw them in the STUPID JAIL. 90 days bread and water for Trespassing the Dumb Boundary.

      54. SAD!

        I think this law was created to help stop people from speaking out against illegal aliens in arizona and other areas of our country on the internet!

        So when you talk about illegals on the net this can be used by latino supremacists, illegal alien supporters and the illegals themselves to stop us from fighting them on the net.
