Only days after clearing Congress, US President Barack Obama signed his name to H.R. 347 on Thursday, officially making it a federal offense to cause a disturbance at certain political events — essentially criminalizing protest in the States.
But that is not all
HR347, "the Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011" makes it illegal to protest in the vicinity of anyone who rates a Secret Service detail (even if you aren't aware of the person's presence), thus sparing politicians and VIPs the ugly and unseemly spectacle of having to confront voters who disagree with their policies.
Out of 535 members, only three Congressmen voted against it.
- Broun, Paul [R] GA-10
- Amash, Justin [R] MI-3
- Paul, Ronald [R] TX-14
Only 3 out of 535 voted NO.
So now you cannot walk up to a congressman, senator, or executive department head and tell them you do not agree with their position.
What right will they take away next. Wake up America!
