Assembly Bill A416 Liberals have been trying to stifle any speech with which they disagree, the 1st Amendment be damned. Dissent is dangerous to them. If you have the temerity to disagree with the accepted position of those in power, you will be punished. Joe Stalin perfected this approach years ago; lock ‘em up. Apparently, Nikita Khrushchev was right that Communism would eventually take over.
A Democratic member of the New York State Assembly from NY City, Nick Perry, authored Bill A416 which calls for the ‘removal and / or detention’ of individuals who are identified as or even suspected of being a ‘case, contact or carrier’ of a contagious disease. A golden opportunity to remove those that dare disagree with the left, under the cover of law.
From the bill itself:
“Upon determining by clear and convincing evidence that the health of others is or may be endangered by a case, contact or carrier, or suspected case, contact or carrier of a contagious disease that, in the opinion of the governor, after consultation with the commissioner, may pose an imminent and significant threat to the public health resulting in severe morbidity or high mortality, the governor or his or her delegee…may order the removal and/or detention of such a person or of a group of such persons... Such person or group of persons shall be detained in a medical facility or other appropriate facility or premises designated by the governor or his or her delegee…”
The liberal Governor of NY - or his liberal delegee from within Albany’s liberal swamp - will decide if you need to be imprisoned as a public health menace. Since it is likely that people will object to being removed from their home and imprisoned (in violation of several parts of the “Bill of Rights” of the U.S. Constitution), it’s likely people will have to be removed at gunpoint.
Further down in the bill it says, “A person who is detained in a medical facility or other appropriate facility or premises, shall not conduct himself or herself in a disorderly manner and shall not leave or attempt to leave such facility”.
Disorderly manner? Like not wanting to be imprisoned in violation of the Constitution? And if you try to leave the facility, expect armed guards to say “No.”
Then, the bill says, “When a person or group is ordered to be detained…for a period not exceeding three business days, such person or member of such group shall, upon request, be afforded an opportunity to be heard”.
Again, that pesky “Bill of Rights” doesn’t state you have to “request” to be heard, it requires that you automatically be given a hearing. In fact, the Constitution is specific about what “to be heard” actually means while this bill allows “to be heard” to be left open to interpretation. Of course, the Constitution deals with “Criminal prosecutions” and liberal lawyers will argue in front of liberal judges that this is a loophole since this NY bill covers public health and not criminal prosecutions. But no liberal judge would buy that argument – would they? If there is any doubt about politicians’ priorities, the part of this bill that allows three business days to be heard ensures that no bureaucrat will have their weekend or holiday interrupted because of some silly constitutional issue over being imprisoned. Apparently, NY’s bail reform law that frees public safety threats does not apply to those imprisoned under this bill? This bill imprisons people (for public safety) while other NY State laws release recidivist criminals (for their safety) into the general public. No threat to public safety there! All the Governor of NY would have to do is define someone with a different opinion than his as having a communicable disease (like the flu which kills thousands every year) and that person could be imprisoned in the name of public health. Our Forefathers wrote the Constitution to protect us from these things. But that’s just a piece of outdated paper that needs to be reinterpreted (or ignored) in view of modern issues
The bill further states that, “The provisions of this section shall be utilized in the event that the governor declares a state of health emergency due to an epidemic of any communicable disease".
Don’t liberals often describe gun violence as an “epidemic”? It certainly seems to be “epidemic” in cities governed by liberal mayors where criminals are released without bail! And since carrying a gun poses dangers to others, in liberal minds, doesn’t that make ammunition a carrier of a communicable disease?
Make sure you wear your masks and practice social distancing or you will be taken to the detention center!
