Elizabeth Trisler wins a contest for Anti-Choice speeches. For some bizarre reasons she's going to be given an award in the OHIO STATE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. (????!!!!)
But now, she is persecuted because she can't get an award from the Government of the State of Ohio for it. See the below clip.
I think I am going to start a "Communist Speech Contest." If the Ohio House of Representatives does not allow me to give the award ceremony on the floor while the house is in session, I will cry persecution, loudly, demanding that the government endorse my views by letting the winner of a Pro-Communist contest speak in a government building, during a session of a governing body.
If I am denied this, will I get to go on FOX News and whine about it how persecuted Communists are for not being endorsed by the State Government? I sure hope so. That looks like a lot of fun.
You see "persecution" to a right-winger is defined as "not being universally endorsed and blindly praised by absolutely everyone", and also "being challenged with a different viewpoint."
Christian kids are persecuted if there is no openly endorsed school prayers.
Republican kids are persecuted if their teacher presents them with the reality of Global Warming.
Fundamentalist Christian kids are persecuted, if they are made aware of the fact that the theory of evolution exists and is accepted.
However, the 1940 Smith Act or the Communist Control Act, which set up REAL FEMA CAMPS for Communists, and JAILED PEOPLE FOR THEIR POLITICAL VIEWS, are just "functioning democracy."
What is wrong with this world?
How come every time I've been confronted by views I disagree with, or better yet, not been openly endorsed by a government body I don't get a national TV audience to listen, and the sympathy of Steve Doocy.
Am I really a fool to think Communists are persecuted under capitalism? Am I really a fool to think that the super-rich control the media?
