Tennessee Law Nullifies First Amendment Right of Free Speech
More creeping Big-Brother state.
The state of Tennessee just passed a law that criminalizes free speech if an image posted online causes “emotional distress” to someone.
Randy of Patriot Action Network alerts us to a new law in Tennessee which makes it a crime to “transmit or display an image” online that is likely to “frighten, intimidate or cause emotional distress” to someone who sees it.
Violations can get you almost a year in jail time or up to $2500 in fines.
But images of Obama cause me emotional distress! Is there any legal way they can be eliminated without my moving to Tennessee? Or do I have to wait until January 2012 — my Tylenol is running out, and it too, like everything else is getting more expensive.
