Until we outlaw spreading lies to the public via mass media the GQP and toxic shiatbags like Gayfrog Man will keep attacking our democracy with their propaganda

Yelling fire in a theatre is a crime, why and how is this any different?

These two folks, both convicted of being sh*t stains and lying about everything, are telling more lies.

The abortion issue and Trump's many crimes have torpedoed the GOP mid term chances.  The Dems are clearly in disarray.

Jones actually has a billion dollars worth of free speech behind him now.  That's a lot of free speech.

Fair point.

Maybe I can just replace "goats" with "I'm Eric," "Jr.," or "Ben Shapiro." Bonus if Shapiro's wife corroborates because we know he's not doing anything for her.

Alex Jones came from such humble beginnings.  On the same channel you could catch the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Alex or the wife's secretary conned into appearing topless in some student film.   Alex was also regularly beaten by the Georgetown polizei or so he claimed.

Consequence-free lying. It's what's for American politics now. Perhaps always was? Pretty sure they just were less obvious about it before Trump proved you don't have to be.

The basic fundamental rights of this country.

Remember when Democrats were all pissed in 2012 when the GOP passed a whole bunch of laws about lying about military service and Democrats lined up in lock step saying that lying was not criminal? And then SCOTUS - including Ruth Bader Ginsberg struck down laws that criminalized lying?

Good times. Good times.

Biden and the Dems had better be ready for a shooting war with the GQP after November, because the chip on the RWers' shoulder is the size of Putin's table.

Two things: can the voter fraud please get rid of the Mitch McConnell grease clog that is keeping the economy logjammed, and can the new scandemic covid actually kill everybody who hasn't got a vaccination?  (except for those who can't get vaccinated for medical reasons- they can have a pass since we're doing imaginary shiat here.)

https://www.dopplr.com/lying-to-the-police/

"A person convicted of perjury under federal law may face up to five years in prison and fines. (18 U.S.C. § 1621.) The punishment for perjury under state law varies from state to state but is typically a felony. Felonies carry a possible prison sentence of at least one year, plus fines and probation."

As much as I disagree with the right wing shills here, and the Alex jones type pukes out there , there's a big problem with criminalizing lying.

Yelling fire creates an immediate and demonstrable physical harm. Defamation demonstrable financial and other harms.

Generalized lying by right wing nut jobs is certainly harmful. But with broad enough laws you get holocaust deniers, russian propagandists, civil war revisionists etc filing all kinds of suits against people saying they're lying if they talk about the holocaust or the civil war was about slavery not states rights or Russia not Ukrainian is the Nazis.

Weird shiat similar to that happens under overly broad libel laws abroad already (hence trump's push to expand libel laws here to bring constant nuisance suits). Bad idea in general, and particularly bad given all the trump scum judicial appointees at this point

Not that hate and anger don't have an impact, but so does morbid obesity, hypertension, likely diabetes, and taking a bunch of wacky untested "supplements". Probably also stress from having to look over your shoulder because you know there are lots of people with legit reason to want to murder you.

Well, you see, the Democrats only cared about Trump winning because they're so deranged regarding him, and they didn't want to make it too obvious they were stealing the election so they let all those other Republicans win. As you can see it failed completely, we all know the depths of the Democrat lie.

The difficulty we run into, with regard to the concerns raised by this pamphlet, is that we now have a conservative Catholic majority on the Supreme Court, which is actively working to subvert and dismantle first amendment protections.

Lying is illegal when under oath, also  when perpetrating a fraud. Lying to the FBI is criminal. The first amendment covers a lot of ground but there are exceptions.
