The Koontz, Durfee, Patrick, “Pro-Active Team For 37”, will protect the Bill of Rights, against ALL enemies, foreign and domestic. The audacity of our government employees to consider maintaining a list of so-called “extremist” organizations. Of course the “One-Party” ruling class cleared this bill out of committee. Rest assured that our team will protect your voice and will never be watered down or stifled by ludicrous bills such as A-5790.
On behalf of her party and Governor Phil Murphy, Democrat Assemblywoman Angela McKnight (D-Hudson) recently proposed bill number A-5790 which “requires the Attorney General to establish and maintain a domestic extremist organization database.” Yesterday, the bill cleared the Assembly Homeland Security and State Preparedness Committee, which is chaired by Assemblywoman McKnight.
Under A-5790, you don’t need to be convicted of a crime to become a target and end up on a list of extremists – a public list, accessible by potential employers, neighbors, and such. Under McKnight’s bill, merely the accusation that you might “commit or plan” a crime “motivated by a political or ideological viewpoint” is enough.
