Republican States Are Clamping Down On Your Right to Protest | MSNBC


Florida Governor Ron Desantis this week signed into law the nation’s strictest anti-protest laws. They make it harder to protest and easier for people to strike protesters with their cars and get away with it. Former Congresswoman, Debbie Mucarsel-Powell joined American Voices with Alicia Menendez to discuss how she feels about the new laws being enacted in her home state.» Subscribe to MSNBC:

Republican States Are Clamping Down On Your Right to Protest | MSNBC


  1. I thought they were the party against cancel culture. Just more hypocrisy, cheating and suppressing voices of truth.

    1. @Romance with the Past it’s the worlds richest goldmine that was found almost four years ago, that the United States government is trying to keep a secret, instead of announcing it and trying to give Americans hope. That’s how I know that they are all crooked both right and left

    2. @THE ANGRY QUAD the politicians have been suppressing the truth about the lost dutchman goldmine for almost four years now, while they distract the American people with hate bait. The right and left are guilty. And they both share a nuclear shelter together when they are ready to exterminate us slaves. And when they finally come out of their holes they will just tell any survivors that Russia did it.

  2. Next thing you know, Florida will be clamping down on 2nd amendment rights if protesters arm themselves for protection against drivers that may choose to run them over.

    1. @Tod Brown I take you are against “stand your ground” laws shouldn’t apply to people whose point of view you don’t agree with?

    1. @Richard Barber I have done that a lot in the past, but YouTube is oblivious and indifferent to the obvious Russian propaganda trolls and does NOTHING.

  3. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    1. @Paul Wilson I have not read it but these claims looked very suspect, even on the surface. The only one I’d be concerned with is the subject of traffic/vehicles and the interaction with the general public or protestors.

    2. Standing in the middle of the highway blocking traffic is not speech. Its preventing the passage of free people…

    3. @IceMan Cometh There is also a provision that PEACEFUL protesters can be charge with a 3rd degree felony if they step out into the street. That takes away their voting rights and reveals the true intention of this bill. There are already laws that cover the anti-riot part.

    1. @Charles Talarico – it depends on how you define ‘riot”. Did you watch the clip? That concern is addressed. This law is the stuff of banana republics.

    2. @Whitney Mohrhauser Rachel Maddow, another propagandist. Dems have a pathology; instead, of an ideology.

    3. Leaders told it’s police officers not to enforce the Anti Riot law and already in the court system.
      Fox News
      Orlando Tribune
      Miami Herald

    4. @john emeigh She no different from Fox Commentators like Tucker Carlson and Jeanine Shipirro

  4. The first time this law is challenged in the courts, it will lead to it being overturned as unconstitutional.

    1. Wait because we dont want your terrorists rioting looting and burning down the town? That isnt protesting dude that’s Anarchy.

    2. @THE ANGRY QUAD well listen to the Hypocrisy of the Portland Mayor. He used these same anarchists and pretended they were protesting. Now that they are still protesting now he is calling them Anarchists because they no longer serve his purpose.

    1. @studyhistory2ctruth It might mean giving up a weekend barbecue and beer. But by golly there game. Look out for the ones with motorized wheel chairs.

    1. @packjim56
      Biden is just a Trojan horse…the real centre of power and policies designed to turn this country into a communist Country is with AOC and Harris and other far left looneys that control the Democrat party…America has never been closer than today to becoming a nanny communist government controlled state..GOD HELP US ALL

    2. @Alex Hamilton the fact that the first amendment protects the right to peacefully assemble, when in Florida’s bill they can no call it a riot “if 3 or more people gather” to protest anything. Good luck keeping these laws on the books because they’re unconstitutional, or you agree that the amendments to the constitution are all invalid meaning that states can also make it a crime to own weapons. Your choice.

    3. @THE ANGRY QUAD it changes the law to say that 3 or more people gathered can be deemed a riot, it never mentions violence or peaceful protests just gives the governor the right to declare a riot if 3 or more people gather to protest anything. Maybe you should read the law, but we both know that’s above your abilities…

    4. @Sun Dial the new law doesn’t specify anything about violence, it just says if 3 or more people gather it can be declared a riot. But hey since the constitution and the 1st amendments protection of peaceful assembly is being erased, I hope you enjoy when states make it illegal to own guns.

    5. @E E
      WOW..!!!!!! A Liberal concerned about 1st amendment and free speech…i thought you guys hated anyone thinking and saying things that you dont believe traitors to America are doing everything you can to ban free speech aided by your media and social media buddies who ban and censor any conservative views..perhaps we should have you stuffed and displayed at the Smithsonian as an oddity of nature…..

    1. @George Petersen btw george, they will come for you to… you are an old white guy… you wont be spared

    2. @George Petersen Democrats don’t believe in gun ownership so how will you blow us away

    3. blah blah blah, go get laid, smoke a joint, play some music. enjoy yourself. You ain’t gonna change anything.

    1. @Alex Hamilton Because he did the same thing w voting laws. You better believe they are trying to do just as these ladies are saying

    2. @AT 1984 But the Republicans are not going to stop. Fox News and them are trying to raise up racial hatred.

    1. At least some here understand what 1A is about.
      Police shouldn’t be using violence against protesters. I’d be running if I saw police tear gas or shoot rubber bullets at the people in front of me.
      This bill is a violation of the 1st amendment.

    2. @Flutterchu well if you cant follow the law while protesting, that’s what happens. Not following a curfew is breaking the law. When 10 PM rolls around, go home. No one wants to hear your screaming and yelling all hours of the night. Have some respect for others.

    3. @Alex Hamilton I always found it very strange how you pussi-bois think you’re the only ones with guns. That’s not too smart, simpletons.

    4. @sam-online But now what shall I burn and loot with my moltov cocktail, black ski masks, and “all cops are nazis” picket signs?!

  5. 2 of 2 She did not resign, she said in emailed messages to FLORIDA TODAY on Friday evening, and provided for the first time details about efforts of her superiors to keep data from the public to support Gov. Ron DeSantis plans to re-open the state.

  6. When the GOP’s following Cuba and Venezuela’s playbook, then it’s probably time to dismantle the Party and kick their leadership to the curb!

  7. It’s funny how they are calling everything violent riots.but the murderous burglary and insurrection at the Capitol.

    1. I am still waiting for msnbc’s redaction of the officer being killed by the protestors. The pain they inflicted on this mans family is a disgrace to “journalism” This place is great, don’t be blinded by the hate this platform spreads. B kind, B Safe

    2. The capital doesn’t get raided every week, communist ashy terrorists DO destroy American neighborhoods every week.

    3. What a clown show. The ONLY person murdered was an unarmed woman who wasn’t a flaming leftist. No warning, no taser, just BANG! Why aren’t you marxist Democrats crying to defund the Capitol police?

  8. Ron DeSatan might encourage them to commit vehicular anti-protest manslaughter in the State of Florida, but will their car insurance policies cover it?

    1. @THE ANGRY QUAD Nay, nay, my friend. You now have license to drive on the friggin sidewalk to mow *anyone* down. Just gotta say Antifa was chasing you.

  9. This comes awfully close to the “state of emergency” declarations used by tin pot dictators.

  10. Jefferson Quote

    “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them (around the banks), will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”
