Democrat Rep. Frederica Wilson: People Who Make Fun of Congress Should Be Imprisoned

-By Rusty Weiss

With a 20 percent approval rating for Congress, there’d be a lot of prosecutions.

Florida Rep. Frederica Wilson (D), after inspecting an immigrant detention facility in Homestead, Florida Tuesday, announced that anyone critical of members of Congress online ought to be prosecuted.

Wilson’s comments come in the wake of a report exposing a vulgar Facebook page involving current and former border patrol agents who were highly critical of some pro-illegal immigrant lawmakers such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

She vowed to fight the private Facebook page and criminally charge those involved.

“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,” said Wilson.

“We’re gonna shut them down and work with whoever it is to shut them down, and they should be prosecuted,” she announced. “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.”

Those ‘intimidating’ efforts involved suggestions to hit “Ocasio-Cortez and Texas Rep. Veronica Escobar with burritos as they visit CBP facilities,” and they were made in a private Facebook group.

Wilson Mocks Trump

Does making fun of a sitting President count as a prosecutable offense?

In 2018, when Wilson publicized a private conversation between Trump and a Gold Star widow, she lashed out by calling him “crazy” and declared he had “a brain disorder.”

Previously she had asserted that “the president is desperate for attention and needs psychological help.”

What Else Did She Say

After suggesting citizens poking fun at members of Congress should be prosecuted, Wilson pivoted to attacking the Trump administration’s handling of illegal immigrants, something she failed to criticize when Barack Obama was in office and doing the same exact things.

“This administration has shown a blatant disregard for the mental and physical health of children in custody,” she whined. “They’re spending weeks, and even months, in detention conditions that are tantamount to living under house arrest. We are upset about it.”

Maybe they’re in facilities tantamount to house arrest because … well, they broke the law.

With stupid comments like that, she’ll need to prosecute a lot of people.
