Democrat Introduces White Supremacy Bill

You can count on Sheila Jackson Lee to regularly harp on anything regarding racism.  This time she doesn’t want people talking poorly online about non-whites in such a way as to influence a hate crime.  Her bill, “Leading Against White Supremacy Act of 2023”, criminalizes “conspiracy to commit white supremacy”.  The Texas Democrat wants people prosecuted even if nothing physical comes from the words.

Jackson Lee forgot the First Amendment

The bill tries to “prevent and prosecute white supremacy inspired hate crime and conspiracy to commit white supremacy inspired hate crime.”  It defines someone as engaging in a white supremacy hate crime “when white supremacy ideology has motivated the planning, development, preparation, or perpetration of actions that constituted a crime or were undertaken in furtherance of activity that, if effectuated, would have constituted a crime.”

The “Conspiracy” involves publishing material that “advances white supremacy, white supremacist ideology, antagonism based on ‘replacement theory’, or hate speech that vilifies or is otherwise directed against any non-White person or group.”  Lauren Boebert tweeted out about the First Amendment Jackson Lee forgot, “In case you weren’t aware of what the Democrats were prioritizing in the 118th Congress, just take a look.  When they’re not bankrupting our country, they’re busy making a mockery of the First Amendment.”

Jackson Lee wants DOJ involvement

The bill grants the Department of Justice the “authority to conduct operations and activities pursuant” to what it sees as “necessary and appropriate to interdict, mitigate, or prevent such action from culminating in violent activity.”  It gives the authority to maintain records of such hate crimes.

Conservative attorney Harmeet Dhillon also tweeted out, “Who wants to tell her about the First Amendment?  Several Twitter users responded about both anti-white legislation and free speech.

Jackson Lee may not see this passed

The first Twitter user wrote, “Congressman Sheila Jackson Lee just introduced a bill that would make it a federal crime for White people, and White people only, to criticize mass immigration or to say anything that she claims would vilify ‘a non-White person or group.’”  A second one tweeted out, “Sheila Jackson Lee should be introduced to the Bill of Rights. Particularly the first amendment pertaining to free speech.”  A third one joined in, “This is a disturbing, yet not surprising, piece of #AntiWhite legislation.”

Jonathan Turley is a George Washington University law professor.  He tweeted out this would create thought crimes,

“’Even in today’s anti-free speech environment in Congress, a recent proposed by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D., Tx.) is a menacing standout… The bill is an almost impenetrable word salad of convoluted provisions. However, what is clear (perhaps the only clear thing) is that the “Leading Against White Supremacy Act of 2023″ would gut the First Amendment and create effective thought crimes.”
