New York Gov. Kathy Hochul Goes to War with 1st Amendment After Buffalo Mass Shooting
New York Governor Kathy Hochul is going to war with the 1st Amendment, exploiting a recent mass shooting in Buffalo in order to attack the Bill of Rights and Constitution.
“The CEOs of [social media] companies need to be held accountable and ensure all of us that they’re taking every step humanly possible to monitor this [racist] information,” Hochul said while appearing on ABC News.
“How these depraved ideas are fermenting on social media… it’s spreading like a virus now. [There are racist conspiracies] spreading through social media platforms that need to be monitored and shut down the second these words are espoused… it has to stop,” she added.
This is when Hochul claimed falsely that so-called “hate speech” is not protected under the law.
“We will protect the right to free speech, but there is a limit,” Hochul stated. “There is a limit to what you can do, and hate crimes—hate speech—is not protected.”

Big League Politics has reported on the authoritarian nature of Hochul’s rule ever since she seized power over New York:
“New York Governor Kathy Hochul on Friday ordered all offices, restaurants, shops, and other businesses statewide to make staff and customers either show proof of taking a COVID-19 inoculation or force them to wear masks — otherwise, she says they will face a $1,000 fine per violation.
The new mandate on businesses — many of which are small practices barely surviving financially from repeated assaults by the government on their ability to engage in free enterprise — will take effect Monday and applies statewide.
Businesses that decide to not act as COVID-19 inoculation and muzzle police reportedly could be subject to both civil and even criminal penalties, including a maximum fine of $1,000 for each violation.
The draconian rule will remain in force until at least January 15th. Governor Hochul will then decide if she wants to further extend it, officials said. Hochul’s office said local health departments will be in charge of enforcement.
“I speak all over the state and they’re asking for help. They’ve done everything they can, I applaud our local governments, our county executives, our county administrators and the local public health departments for doing what they can do,” Hochul told reporters after an unrelated event in Manhattan on Friday. “I said I’ll give them air cover, I will give them the protection.”
The newly appointed and unelected New York state governor then went on to falsely suggest that the pandemic has continued solely because of those who have refused the Covid-19 jab.”
Hochul’s comments show that the Democrats are not only at war with the 2nd Amendment, but the entirety of the Bill of Rights. These far-left radicals are shameless enemies of the Republic.
