Halloran against internet censorship bill

From Bayside Patch:

Councilman Dan Halloran, R-Whitestone, is breaking rank with GOP members in the State Legislature, to blast a Republican sponsored bill banning anonymous online comments.

The bill, known as the Internet Protection Act, would require New York-based web administrators to remove comments made by anonymous posters, unless the poster agreed to attach their real names, according to the Huffington Post.

“This is an unconstitutional attempt by New York State to play Big Brother on the Internet,” Halloran told Fox News. “Will it soon be illegal to publish an anonymous novel or distribute an anonymous work of art?”

Dan did something right for a change.

In this case...LOL...far right.
But I'm not complaining.

Being a right wing Republican Libertarian, he's got no choice but to fight for an individual's rights
and freedoms.

Great job C.M. Halloran!
We're all with you on this one.

If dan really wants to do something to stand up for our first amendment rights then he should switch parties. At this point most of us wouldnt come close to a republican.

Great choices:

One of Ragusa's Republican assholes.

One of Crowley's Democratic dictatorship's crooked candidates.

I think I'll pack up my goods
and retire to Canada.
