Massachusetts Dem Wants to Outlaw Word That Starts with 'B' and Rhymes with 'Witch'

Has anybody ever called you a bad word? Did it hurt your feelings? Do you wish there were a law against using bad words that hurt people’s feelings? Then here’s some good news from the liberal paradise of Massachusetts.

Alex Griswold, Washington Free Beacon:

A Massachusetts Democrat is pushing a bill that would make it a crime to maliciously call someone a “bit*h” within the commonwealth.

Foul-mouthed individuals who are found guilty under a bill introduced by Democratic representative Daniel J. Hunt would face a $150 maximum fine for the first offense, while repeat offenders would face up to six months’ imprisonment, a $200 fine, or both…

“A person who uses the word ‘bit*h’ directed at another person to accost, annoy, degrade or demean the other person shall be considered to be a disorderly person,” the bill says.

Sounds like somebody called Rep. Hunt a bit*h and he didn’t like it. Could be worse. His parents could’ve named him Mike.

This is dumb and unconstitutional and fascist, but it’s hardly the worst thing a Massachusetts Dem has ever done. And at least the Republicans are having fun with it:

In other northeast free speech news, a couple of University of Connecticut students were just arrested for yelling the n-word. The bad n-word. The specific charge is “ridicule on account of creed, religion, color, denomination, nationality or race.” (It’s a good thing Don Rickles is already dead!) The two guys weren’t saying it to anybody in particular, but they did say it, and somebody got it on tape. So now they’ve been arrested. For saying a word. In the United States of America.

I guess now we’re going to arrest everybody who says a word somebody else doesn’t like. This is good news for real criminals, who can go around committing real crimes while the cops are busy handcuffing potty-mouths.
