The Totalitarian Left: CA SB1424 will criminalize the spreading of 'fake news'

The California state government has gone from radical Left to full-tilt totalitarian.
CA State Senator Richard Pan (D) introduced mandatory vaccines into law via SB 277 in 2015. When questioned, being a coward, Pan fled:

Now Pan has introduced another anti-freedom bill, SB 1424, which will ban web sites, social media and even email that spread “untrue,” “misleading” or “false” information, whatever that means.
In effect, SB 1424 will criminalize anyone who dare question the government’s and MSM’s “official” narratives, our First Amendment right to freedom of speech be damned.

Below is the full text of SB 1424:

An act to amend Section 1103 of the Commercial Code, relating to commercial law. An act to add Title 14.5 (commencing with Section 3085) to Part 4 of Division 3 of the Civil Code, relating to the Internet.
Existing law prohibits a person, among others, from making or disseminating in any advertising device, or in any manner or means whatever, including over the Internet, any statement concerning real or personal property or services that is untrue or misleading, as specified.
This bill would require any person who operates a social media, as defined, Internet Web site with a physical presence in California to develop a strategic plan to verify news stories shared on its Web site. The bill would require the plan to include, among other things, a plan to mitigate the spread of false information through news stories, the utilization of fact-checkers to verify news stories, providing outreach to social media users, and placing a warning on a news story containing false information.
The Uniform Commercial Code generally regulates commercial transactions, and is intended to be liberally construed and applied to promote its underlying purposes and policies, which include simplifying, clarifying, and modernizing the law governing commercial transactions.
This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to that law.

No worries-they don’t enforce laws in California anymore. California is now the “Lawless West”.

Pan’s new legislation obviously designed not only for the plebs in general, but to stop the many, many people who tried to expose HIS and others lies on vaccines. Here is the little creep showing support by Pussy Hats.

Pan behavior is an a perfect example of why these political rats are all so hellbent to take the second amendment away. As they grind people and especially their children into the ground, they know there will be a breaking point.

We will let you know what is true and what is a lie, right before the sentencing. Or at least, before the hanging, which ever comes first.

We now know the projects which we should be forcefully working to correct in every state of our country. I speak on another below, but we must begin somewhere and after the one below, let’s eliminate “dual citizenship” which is really used to empower dual traitors. “Parents to pull kids from public schools to protest ‘graphic, gender-bending’ sex ed” – [An April 23 protest] https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/apr/11/sex-ed-sit-out-april-23-protest-graphic-gender-ben/ If you are a White person in America, you have the blood coursing through your body of the founders and settlers of our once great country, and you have more right and more responsibility to… Read more »

It is bitterly apparent that leftists have no trouble dictating to others what they are “allowed” to do. I have to conclude that those who favor this have that sort of personality. I personally find it abhorrent to dictate to others. The idea that they do this and seem surprised when people resist makes me thing that they can’t be very bright. I don’t appreciate being manipulated and no one has the right to tell me what I can do or say. So, probably by design, these two positions cannot be reconciled. That means that one wins and the other… Read more »

Just because a person with the IQ of 70 that is holding office, only means he might be smarter than those voting for him. This guy is a putz.
