Alliteration aside, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department is reviewing (I read that as destroying) a female deputy’s career because her husband chose to exercise his First Amendment rights to assemble, to petition his government for redress of grievances, and his right to free speech.
Why? They are alleging that her husband was a member of the “Proud Boys” and he was charged with “obstruction of an official proceeding, knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, and engaging in disruptive and disorderly conduct.” All misdemeanors, and the charges may even be unconstitutional, unless the government wishes to try and make it a crime to interrupt a government official. This would mean that a person yelling at President Trump from the gallery would also be committing a crime. Ridiculous.
At any rate, now they are talking about using cancel culture to create a “blood crime” whereby people will not only be punished for their own behavior, but for the behavior of their relatives. This smells of the sort of thing that was common under the Bolsheviks.
