Americans should get ready for a huge spike in taxes because we’re going to need a lot more jail space. A controversial new proposal will have police working overtime from coast-to-coast, rounding up all the hardcore criminals. The ones who are guilty of posting rude comments about Congress members. It’s just been made a progressive priority.
Rep. Frederica Wilson of Florida told a gathering at the Homestead Temporary Shelter for Unaccompanied Children, “Those people who are online making fun of members of Congress are a disgrace.” With the most recent Gallup poll showing the congressional approval rating at a dismal 20 percent, deporting all the illegals will seem easy in comparison.

Wilson wants to do something about it and she’s convinced there should be some harsh penalties. She insists that this kind of uncivil behavior must be stopped from ever happening again. “We’re gonna shut them down and work with whoever it is to shut them down, and they should be prosecuted.”
Wilson warns social media users they won’t be able to hide in the shadows and keep committing these horrible crimes. “You cannot intimidate members of Congress,” it scares them. Not only that, “it is against the law, and it’s a shame in this United States of America.” Exactly when did voicing an honest opinion online become against the law? Did the Democrats repeal the First Amendment while nobody was watching?
Wilson’s attempt to jump on the manufactured border detention facility crisis bandwagon after it already pulled away is a joke. It’s already been debunked. The same group of radical representatives that blew the whole thing out of proportion amazingly voted against providing the money to fix it. If Wilson has her way, pointing that out could now lead to hard time in prison.
It’s obvious that Wilson is simply trying to gain some media attention. When she leaked her version of what she thought she overheard, while President Donald Trump was consoling the family of a fallen serviceman, it was a huge boost to her public relations. Even Wilson admits that when that happened, the incident “made her a rock star.”
