[quote:Anonymous Coward 42566056:MV8yMjc3MDkyXzM4NzU4MzI0XzY4NTQyQzJG] Mental or emotional attack is NOT bullying! Bullying is physical attack, or threat thereof. It's illegal by a thousand laws, and they're not enforced. Politicians are public figures, subject to ridicule, infamy, and satire. They chose their place, and should pay for it. Politicians are idiots - there - I said it. If a person attacks you - even a soft punch, you have a right to return lethal force. There's no way to gauge potential damage. Physical violence is never acceptable. Politicians deserve the disgust that's heaped on them, as do all power trippers. [/quote]
Not only did this month's top nanny introduce a bill that would criminalize speech deemed to be bullying--up to a year in the clink!--she introduced a bill that, according to UCLA First Amendment scholar Eugene Volokh, is not limited to speech about children (despite it being touted with the typical "for the children!" justifications). Volokh notes that the bill, if passed, could punish harsh speech directed at journalists, academics, celebrities, politicians, and the like, if the speech results in "substantial emotional distress."
