The GOP is mocking a new bill introduced by a Democrat that will literally attempt to overrule the American constitution.
The proposed bill seeks to ban the use of the word “bitch” when used to demean another person. As funny as it sounds, they are really trying to do this.
They propose to fine people up to $200 or give them 6 months in jail as a penalty.
Boston.com reported that the bill, filed by state Rep. Dan Hunt in May, is slated to go before the Joint Committee on the Judiciary on Tuesday afternoon.
The measure proposes adding two sentences to the section of state law that assigns fines and other penalties for various offenses, such as crimes for common night walkers, indecent exposure, and disturbers of the peace.
“A person who uses the word ‘bitch’ directed at another person to accost, annoy, degrade or demean the other person shall be considered to be a disorderly person in violation of this section,” the bill says.
The proposal says that the alleged violations can either be reported by the person the word was directed at or by witnesses.
As the bill says, penalties would be similar to those outlined in the other subsections of the state law, which, depending on the subsection, provide for a fine of not more than either $150 or $200, or jail time of up to 6 months.
On Monday, the Massachusetts Republican Party criticized and mocked the bill on Twitter, “Beacon Hill Democrats like (Rep. Dan Hunt) are fearlessly taking on the biggest problems facing the commonwealth.”
