Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL), is a perfect example of how out of touch our political class has become. Despite taking an oath to defend the Constitution, Wilson would like to override the First Amendment to protect members of Congress from mockery.

Florida Democrat says those ‘making fun’ of members of Congress online should be ‘prosecuted’

Democrat Rep. Frederica Wilson said people who are “making fun” of members of Congress online should be “prosecuted.”

The Florida congresswoman made the comments on Tuesday outside of the Homestead Temporary Shelter for Unaccompanied Children in her home state.

“Those people who are online making fun of members of Congress are a disgrace, and there is no need for anyone to think that is unacceptable [sic],” Wilson said.

“We’re gonna shut them down and work with whoever it is to shut them down, and they should be prosecuted,” she added. “You cannot intimidate members of Congress, frighten members of Congress. It is against the law, and it’s a shame in this United States of America.”

Wilson’s comments came amid a controversy over a Facebook group that includes Border Patrol agents and where they allegedly mocked and posted graphic content about members of Congress, including New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Democrats and their supporters merciless mock President Trump online, accuse him of being a dictator and worse, but apparently, anything involving the precious AOC crosses a line.

Here’s the video:

Wilson is the same woman who said on national television that she doesn’t trust our Border Patrol agents being around migrant girls who are going through puberty. What exactly is she implying?

Finally, in terms of shutting down people who mock members of Congress, Wilson should not worry. The base of her party is taking care of that.
