Arizona’s Fascist Attempt To Ban Protests

Arizona’s Fascist Attempt To Ban Protests


IN AN EFFORT TO INTIMIDATE POTENTIAL PROTESTERS IN THE
STATE OF ARIZONA REPUBLICAN LAWMAKERS HAVE JUST PASSED A LAW
IN THE SENATE, THAT WOULD ESSENTIALLY ALLOW COPS TO SEIZE
ASSETS FROM ANYONE WHO TAKES PART IN A PROTEST THAT MIGHT
TURN VIOLENT. DOESN’T MATTER IF THE PEOPLE INVOLVED ARE VIOLENT THEMSELVES, THEY CAN HAVE THEIR
ASSETS SEIZED BY THE COPS. THIS LEGISLATION HAS PASSED IN THE
SENATE, IT IS NOT GOING TO THE HOUSE. WE WILL SEE
IF IT GETS PASSED.>>I THINK THIS IS ONE OF THE
WORST LAWS I HAVE EVER SEEN. I DON’T EVEN THINK IT IS
BORDERLINE FASCIST, IT IS TOTALLY FASCIST. THAT MEANS IF
YOU SHOW UP TO A PROTEST AND SOMEONE ELSE COMMITS AN ACT OF VIOLENCE IT WILL BE BLAMED ON
YOU, NOT ONLY WILL YOU BE ARRESTED, THEY CAN TAKE THE CAR YOU CAME IN. HE COULD ALSO BE
THE PERSON WHO COMMITTED THE VIOLENCE IS AGAINST YOU. ACCORDING TO THIS BILL THEY WILL BE ALLOWED TO ARREST EVERYONE AT
THE PROTESTS AND SEES EVERYTHING THEY HAVE. WELL, YOU JUST
OUTLAWED PROTESTS. IT’S THE MOST UN-AMERICAN THING YOU CAN DO. IF
YOU PLANTED IN YOUR HOUSE CAN THEY SEIZE YOUR HOUSE? THIS IS A
RICO LAW, IT IS MEANT FOR MOBSTERS.>>THIS IS CIVIL ASSET
FORFEITURE ON STEROIDS. BUT THE INTENT HERE IS NOT JUST TO ENSURE THAT POLICE DEPARTMENT TO
MAKE A BOK, THIS IS MEANT TO ALSO INTIMIDATE PEOPLE AND
CONVINCE THEM IT IS A BAD IDEA TO ORGANIZE PROTESTS AND TO
SPEAK OUT AGAINST ELECTED OFFICIALS. THAT IS A
CONSTITUTIONALLY PROTECTED RIGHT. I WOULD BE AFRAID TO GET
INVOLVED IN ANY PROTESTS BECAUSE I WANT MY ASSETS SEIZED BY THE COPS. HOW DO YOU ENSURE THAT THE
PERSON COMING IN AND DOING SOMETHING VIOLENT IS ACTUALLY INVOLVED WITH THAT CAUSE? HOW DO
WE KNOW IT IS NOT A PROVOCATEUR COMING INTO CAUSE DRAMA?>>HISTORICALLY GOVERNMENTS HAVE
DONE THIS WEATHER IS HERE IN THE US ñ SOMETIMES IN THE CIVIL
RIGHTS PROTESTS WERE MEANT TO BE NONVIOLENT OR ANOTHER COUNTRY
THAT THE GOVERNMENT WILL SEND IT TO CAUSE VIOLENT. THEY WILL
NEVER ACTUALLY CHARGE THE PERSON WHO CAUSED THE VIOLENCE, THEY WILL CHARGE EVERYONE ELSE. IN
ARIZONA THEY ARE CODIFYING IT. NOW THEY SAY THAT IS BECAUSE
PROTESTS ARE REALLY PROBLEMATIC AND POTENTIALLY VIOLENT. REMEMBER WHEN THEY WOULD SHOUT AT TOWN HALLS? THE TEA PARTY
WOULD RAGE AT THOSE TOWN HALLS. REPUBLICANS ON THE OTHER HAND
DON’T GIVE A DAMN, THEY NEVER LIKE THIS COUNTRY IN THE FIRST PLACE. ANY OPPORTUNITY TO BECOME
DICTATORIAL, A RIGHT-WINGER WILL TAKE IT. THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT
PROTESTS OTHERWISE IT WOULD’VE CARED WHEN IT WAS THE TEA PARTY. NOW THE GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS MUST BE PROTECTED. IF YOU ARE A
TRUE CONSERVATIVE AND NOT A SELLOUT ESTABLISHMENT POLITICIAN
LIKE THIS YOU BE OUTRAGED AT THIS. IF YOU CARE ABOUT THE
CONSTITUTION YOU WOULD BE OUTRAGED AT THIS. WE HAVEN’T EVEN GONE TO ONE OF THE
PROVISIONS WHICH I THINK IS EVEN WORSE.>>WHICH
ONE ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?>>ONE OF THE PROVISIONS OF THE
BILL ALLOWS YOU TO ARREST PEOPLE BEFORE ANYTHING EVEN HAPPENS. WHAT IS THAT? THAT IS A THOUGHT
TRAP. I WILL QUOTE THE ACTUAL POLITICIAN HERE. HE SAYS LET’S
JUST STOP THE CRIME BEFORE IT EVEN HAPPENS. IF YOU ARE
PLANNING A PROTEST WE ARE GOING TO ASSUME THAT THE PROTESTS
COULD BE VIOLENT AND A RESCUE FOR PLANNING A PROTEST. THAT IS A THOUGHT CRIME. THAT IS THE
MOST UNCONSTITUTIONAL LAW I HAVE EVER SEEN. AND THESE GUYS CLAIM
TO BE IN FAVOR OF THE CONSTITUTION? THIS IS THE LEAST AMERICAN BILL I HAVE SEEN
IN MY LIFETIME.IF YOU DARE TO EVEN CONSIDER USING YOUR FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS, IN ARIZONA
THEY WILL ARREST YOU AND LOCK YOU UP FOR THOUGHT CRIMES.>>AND SIEZE YOUR PROPERTY.

  1. Why do they keep saying protests. It clearly states "riots" if you cause harm to others property or damage. That is a riot not a protest.

  2. As a born and raised Arizonian with family that works for the state, I've heard about the many stupid things our state government has done over the years (most being all the really stupid decisions with our tax dollars). But hey, i still love my state because of all of the wondrous natural beauty it has to offer. But this….THIS?! Truly makes me sick! Its bad enough that theres greedy fucks in our government that have been salivating at the thought of someday mining the Grand Canyon, but THIS?! Ill bet you anything that not only are they doing this to surpress protesters, but so they can get more free money, cause like i said our state is run by incompetent fools who don't know how to balance a budget and saw this as a way to get more money. So its like a win/win, but only for them. It's sick!

  3. dirty liberals. why does jenk always call such things unamerican? oppression is the most american thing ever. why would a "true conservative" be outraged at this? cuckservatives get wet to their knees when they watch footage of civil rights protesters being roughed up. just give us the story and spare us this "american values" bullshit. doesnt exist, never existed and will not if you keep making it up

  4. I Love Arizona now, I'll bet couple hundred thous $ that in the next couple months Arizona will be the most peaceful state in the US.

  5. there can be no doubt any longer that the republican is now a fascist. to ignore this fact is lethal to our democracy. we must now abandon all pretense of being in a struggle between two competing visions of governance. this is now about submission vs liberation.

  6. Everyone in the comments below needs to stop focusing on insulting Trump supporters and start planning how to pull out from the spiraling death throes of what little democracy you guys have left. Put your energy into stopping these kinds of bills from passing. If you're angry, be angry with the system that gave you two shitty no-options to vote for and move forward. I'm rooting for you guys, this is the USA's chance to revolutionize things for the betterment of all the people, and cut away the stranglehold corporations have gained over your human rights. Sending you guys luck from Australia, cuz if the USA disintegrates it's bad for the whole world, not just Americans.

  7. Never trust Conservatives with this country. Our country is too important to be placed in the hands of phony patriots who worship the cloth and ignore the words on the paper.

  9. Next time Deocrats go protesting, ALL OF YOU, need to bring AR-14s. Let's see if those GOP states dare do anything at that point. If Republicans can do it, why not you?
    If they want a war, give it to them, you're a majority, crush them.

  10. about time! grate to stop this looting and riots! (take all there shit! ) also in force flag burning by in forcing "burning without a pemitt" hate these anti America assholes! also make welfare recipients take a piss test!!!! as you have to take one to get a job, you want my tax dollars then take one!

  11. This will give way to much power to cop and taking away the first right we ever had, this will destroy us. Do you people care?

  12. Where are all the '2nd Ammendment Rights' pussies now ? All you gun-loving upholders of your "cherished" Constitution WHERE ARE YOU NOW ??

  13. In most of the protests that have turned violent have been provoked BY THE POLICE or the only ones committing violence WERE THE POLICE!

  14. this is starting to b…russia and turkey and north korea…..we can not speak out about dumb shit but kkk can kill …steal..and blow ahit up but that's not a crime smh…dumb America

  15. That is why Leopoldo Lopez is in prison in Venezuela. Congratulation America: you have Nicolas Maduro or Evo Morales as president

  16. Remember about a month ago where protestors blocked a speaker from speaking at Berkeley? Remember that "right wing conspiracy" you brilliantly came up with? Yeah… well that was called Facism, which is a word I don't think you understand. But, hey let's keep it 100 as Ana always says.

  17. I can't believe I'm saying this, because normally, I'm a pacifist, but when they come for your First Amendment rights, there's nothing left to do but exercise your Second Amendment rights. Just be sure to bring along plenty of white men (if you're not a white man) so the cops don't just kill you on sight.

  18. Sounds great to me! Soros and other organizers on the lower level should be held responsible for instigating these mobs (let alone the funding of their organization … well, either way it's culpable behavior).

  19. We're guaranteed the right of "peaceful protest": not mobs and riots that indiscriminately harm innocent people (like the Berkeley riots).

  20. Don't worry Republicans, unlike you, Democrats will be too timid to take advantage of the law when it is their turn in office but make sure they leave the law in place. THANK YOU SIR, MAY I HAVE ANOTHER!?

  21. I just read the bill, the language used diffidently has the potential to be abused for the express purpose of deterring any and all protests. still has to the house, lets hope it doesn't pass

  22. Why should they be protesting when they don't even know what they are protesting for and are causing violence and destroying property?

  23. just want to quote myself from 2 years ago "with the pace the republicans move to the right they'll arrive at the end of the spectrum pretty soon, which is outright fascism"…aaaand here we are! next stop fascist america.

  24. The law is DEAD! Yay!

    Victory Lap

  25. hey cenk, 1st amendment trounces local law. worse case scenario if that happened and you were'nt doing anything but protesting and got arrested you just take them to court and eventually it'll end up at the supreme court if it goes that far. i would fight it like that . peace.

  26. 600 dislikes is too many. Guys, they can take your assets (money, personal items) if the protest you attend turns violent. Imagine you're protesting for/against abortion rights. Or you're protesting for/against gun rights. NO ONE should be okay with this.

  27. The bill was killed by the AZ house. http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/politics/legislature/2017/02/27/why-gov-doug-ducey-wont-have-weigh-arizonas-controversial-protest-bill/98474882/

  28. 0:30 Wait, I thought the House passed legislations to the Senate so that they can review it, not the other way around… Did Ana misspoke or did the whole congress switched the system around?

  29. Despite how horrendous this is, it's really difficult to understand your level of 'shocked surprise' here…!! Couldn't anyone over there see this coming, when Trump was on the campaign trail…??? This is a tester & will be rolled out over many states, over the next few months.
    Your 1st amendment is under severe threat and, ironically, the only way you can challenge this, is by invoking the 2nd amendment. After all, that's what it's there for.

  30. I grew up in New Mexico in the 60's & 70's. Even then the feeling was, "Damn those white people over in Arizona sure are racist!" I'm not even making this up. We'd travel there every few years to visit relatives, and every time we crossed back into NM we all breathed easier. AND THIS IS A FAMILY OF WHITE PEOPLE I'M TALKING ABOUT!!!!

  31. when one break, or set cars and building on fire, YES you should, and most, pay for the damages !
    – Or, is that something that the taxpayers have to pay for ? Or the shop-owner ?
    NO, it`s you, paid of leftis, who shall, and will take that bill.. !

    Stupid is what stupid do

  32. I love the singularity of stupidity is getting bigger here. I've never seen anyone who thought it was OK to destroy property.

    this law is not fascist dumbasses. do you not think people should of been arrested for the Berkely riots when they destroyed the campus? do you think people shouldn't of been arrested for burning cars and destroying property in DC?

    this bill is to be sure that people who protest will be responsible. they block roads and flip cars and set buildings on fire, it's not a protest, and it's a riot. that's what the bill is for. I'm sure you didn't get the bill and are making shit up about it. I bet it reads more like those arrested for rioting will be charged, not the whole group. as fake news as you are I can't wait to see the half dozen videos showing how stupid you genocidal asshats are.

  33. The building in my pic is in Phoenix, AZ, I know this state government is the modern Mississippi of the passed.

  34. So I read that bill and I don't see where it says just being apart of the protest would allow them to seize anything. It applies to anyone who plans a protest with the intent of violence. Like a lot of the "protests" we've seen lately.

  35. Small politicians screaming for power. McCain and Flake moving on from their other Big Power paybacks. Now what's his name B wants to play with "the big boys." No!!!!!!

  36. I live in Tucson Arizona and see this everyday. Just following orders on the street… biggest,baddest meanest gang dressed in black and fully armed to capture and kill on command.

  37. Ferguson MO. the Watts Riot, WTO Seattle, Burkley CA all come to mind, NOW some one
    is going to have to PAY for their few minutes of fame…. IF someone starts breaking things, they will also get broken

  38. How come no one has mentioned HR 347? Obama signed it and made it a criminal offense to protest or cause any disturbance in an area that was under the jurisdiction of the Secret Service. That included whether people knew or didn't know that the Secret Service were present. Sounds like AZ is just playing by the Obama playbook a bit, and now people want to cry about it because its "conservatives" doing it. lmfao

  39. first amendment should be protected. but name 1 so called peaceful protest in the last 10 year's that did not destroy privet property and have so called protester's attacking people they even thought did not agree with them ? watch you're life go up in flames and watch you're family or friend's get beat half to death and watch MSM call it a peaceful protest then tell me how you feel. so get the shit right peaceful protest is protected riot's are not

  40. Btw… it IS a bad idea to protest… standing in public chanting and coloring cardboard signs accomplishes nothing. Literally nothing.

  41. Peaceful protest is one thing. Interfering with the rights of others to go about their business is something totally different.

  42. They're they're aiming for a dictatorship. We're mostly there. Some of us have been there the whole time.

  43. I side with the right but I think this law needs more detail. I see what it’s purpose is cause protestors are becoming more violent and covering their face and people who aren’t being violent who are there with them are defending them and standing in the way when few other are committing crimes within the group. It’s trying to stop violence before it even starts which is the same thing as the lefts argument of hate speech and trying to stop violence before it happens

  44. I say please no more laws, no more prs situations. prob/reac/sol scenarios to get the public to ask for them. Lets enforce the ones we already have.
