Last week, we told you about a thorny issue that highlights the danger of the progressive-left’s agenda to control our lives through political correctness. I am pleased to report due to coalition efforts we were able to see the bill pulled from committee. House Bill H7150 is the epitome of how the irrational emotions of the progressive-left are now finding their way into actual legislation … and how they are attempting to legislate morality. In their land of make-believe, the poorly-written bill attempts to prevent discrimination in schools. In fact, any attempt to criminalize anti-political correctness or immorality, will inevitably cause more societal harms than it seeks to prevent.
Thank you to the coalition for stepping up after we highlighted the bill. I appeared on the Tara Granahan Show on WPRO to tell Rhode Islanders about this direct threat to free speech and free thought. The Gaspee Project helped send hundreds of emails from constituents right to their lawmakers. Activists took the fight to social media to say that this bill was misguided. This is the model that works.
How many more bills will we see directly from the Progressive Land of Make Believe this legislation session? This bill proves that your voice is powerful, and that these bills can be stopped.
