Seriously. It appears your state legislature feels that if my blog is offensive it has the right to criminally prosecute me.
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.
Those of you who have been reading my blog for a while will remember that Joe and I earned the title back in January of “Most Offensive” from your counterparts in the anti-rights society.
News flash to the idiots in the Arizona legislature. Welcome to the internet, if you’re not offending someone you’re doing it wrong. You cannot have principals or convictions without someone becoming upset because they disagree with you.
This law cannot be seen as anything but a blatant violation of the First Amendment. Here’s an idea to those who are offended by why what other people write, stop reading it. Seriously this isn’t A Clockwork Orange where someone has your eyes pried open and is forcing you to view media. If you dislike what someone wrote, write a rebuttal and I’m sure the person you directed it at will take some sort of offense at it.
So without further ado, here is a salty profane open letter the the Arizona State Legislature which I will not remove for any reason (click read more to read below the fold, again language warning).
Dear Arizona Legislators and Senators,
Fuck you and the horses you rode in on. How dare you or any of your self serving minions deem what we as a free people can and cannot write. I don’t give two flipping shits if you, any of your mentally retarded staff, or puritan constituents dislike me, my blog, or are offended by anything I have to say. If they don’t like what I said or how I said it the solution is quite simple, stop fucking reading it you ignorant buffoon.
I and no other person am forcing you to read my blog or any other material which I or any other person has written. Just as I am free to write and say what I think and feel, as guaranteed by the First Amendment, you are just as free to write a disagreement, stop reading, and move on to someplace else.
Why don’t you and your tyrannical bible(not just Christian) thumpers, because honestly it’s religious zealots (this includes those who believe socialism and Communism will solve the nations problems while ignoring the lessons of the 20th century) who support this type of legislation, climb down off your crosses, tear it down, and use the wood to build a bridge to get over yourselves. It is unsurprising that a bunch of elected power hungry misanthropes would want to limit speech they find to be offensive or critical of them. Especially given the fact that individuals who differentiate themselves from the “collective” are the first to get a bullet in the back of the neck in a mass grave. They are now needing a way to control those individuals and remove them from the collective. What is surprising though is for one reason or another your electorate is too stupid to see that you and your entire staff are in dire need of an application of tar and feathers. Doubly surprising is these power hungry fools seem to think we wouldn’t notice or be concerned at their new legislation and its potential for misuse.
You and your cohorts are nothing more that a bunch of fucking check valves attempting to stifle free thought, free speech, and free opinion. Every last one of you who voted to approve this legislation is not a human being but an animal wishing to dominate over their fellow man. You feel your constituents are there to serve you and it is not your role to serve them. Those of you who voted against it though you said no, you obviously didn’t do enough. For you should have shamed every last individual willing to vote for or abstain on the vote. You should have offended and shamed them both to prove why what they were doing is wrong by pointing out the fact they’re outlawing dissent and differing opinion. Lastly every last one of you who abstained in that vote is nothing more than a yellow bellied coward that supported those animals but didn’t have enough of a spine to actually stand up and admit it.
Lastly I am grossly offended by this piece of legislation. You read that right, your legislation offends me, as it is nothing but an effort to stifle the rights of a free people. As such I expect should Jan Brewer prove herself to be a power hungry bitch instead of a good person who respects the rights of free people, you shall promptly turn yourselves into your local police departments for prosecution under you new statue. I’m not sure exactly how that would work under Ex Post Facto, but I’m sure we can work something out.
I suggest you and your shit-hook compatriots just go and leave us the hell alone, if not I’m sure this will not be the only public letter of this nature. It’s not our fault that you’re all a bunch of lazy dough-assed morons who can’t seem to understand that offending people comes with the territory of having an opinion and having the ability to think for yourself. If you do understand that then your are some of the most evil people in the world and I’m sure you would be the first to demand that the free thinkers be sent to the gas chambers.
So, in closing. Fuck you, fuck your family, fuck any of your supporters, and lastly fuck anyone offended by this post. Because by god if you’re offended by what I wrote, you’re not my friend, you’re my enemy. Frankly if I’ve offended someone one and they’re my enemy, I take that as a good thing, it means I stood for something in my life.
*I added this on here because I figure you and your staff are too stupid to see my name in the author portion up top.
Interesting, I didn’t make that nearly as much of a straight profanity laced rant I thought it was going to be.
