163. Well, you trust right-leaning law enforcement & judges more than I do.
Because if we are going to make those guys bust rightist & Nazi "items," I doubt they will turn a blind eye to Communist & leftist "items" in turn.

I'll meet you half way- if you could convince them to craft a bill that specifically kept a Republican Judge or cop from associating Stalin with communism, or Satan stars with Human sacrifice, Lois Farakahn with "reverse hatered" etc. then you would be right. I dont think it can be done.

Seems like it would be too narrowly tailored & discriminatory at some point if you were not careful, but maybe it could be done.

I dunno- I just dont see Law Enforcement or folks with agendas playing by those rules you say will be in play.

I would rather leave it as is- political speech, even the bad stuff, is highly protected.
