New Hampshire Democrat Proposes To Restrict Freedom Of Political Opponents
Cynthia Chase wants to keep "Free Staters" out of New Hampshire. The "Free State Project" is an organization that promotes moving to certain areas of New Hampshire in order to change the political demography of that area. Their stated goal is to transform the liberal state to a more conservative state.
In response, Cynthia Chase suggested limiting the freedoms of those Americans to make them feel so unwelcome, they will leave (emphasis mine):
"In the opinion of this Democrat, Free Staters are the single biggest threat the state is facing today. There is, legally, nothing we can do to prevent them from moving here to take over the state, which is their openly stated goal. In this country you can move anywhere you choose and they have that same right. What we can do is to make the environment here so unwelcoming that some will choose not to come, and some may actually leave. One way is to pass measures that will restrict the "freedoms" that they think they will find here. Another is to shine the bright light of publicity on who they are and why they are coming." (Source)
Limiting freedoms of those who disagree is a common tactic of the left. We see it in radical leftist groups shutting down ideological opponents (even children!) and destroying private property, we see it in the liberal media exposing legal gun permit holders, and we see it in blatant threats. Make no mistake - the Democratic Party does not support liberty. Every now and then, we have to thank people like Cynthia Chase for slipping up and showing the true colors of her party.
