#NHEXIT Statement on Rep. Al Baldasaro’s “Controversial Comments” …

Dave Ridley from #NHEXIT has released a statement on NH House Rep. Al Baldasaro’s remarks about executing Hillary Clinton.

‘NH: Trump advisor’s alleged Hillary-execution statement has stunning, secession-related precedent

NH State Rep Al Baldasaro’s reported controversial comments about executing Hillary Clinton…have an interesting historical precedent in another restless, northern region of the Western World. But the results appear to have been strikingly different.

Tommy Sheppard, a nationalist member of the Scottish Parliament, apparently said this regarding the royal wedding of a relatively harmless Kate Middleton: “Off with their heads.” Unlike Baldasaro, who’s reportedly facing investigation by America’s dreaded secret police, Wikipedia reports that Sheppard merely faced “some criticism.”

Why the difference? Perhaps it’s because Scotland has a strong independence movement. London is reluctant to do anything that might push Scotland toward secession. New Hampshire’s independence movement, though growing, is decades behind. That leaves us vulnerable to DC’s de-facto restrictions on controversial speech.

Baldasaro’s comments are often disagreeable; believe me I’ve argued with him enough times in the last decade to know it first hand. But his poor treatment is a reminder of Washington’s double standard. You can safely advocate the assassination of Julian Assange…as many U.S. pols/pundits did when he released Federal atrocity data to the public. But if you weigh in on when the death penalty should be applied, and whether it should be applied to a big Fed politician, Washington investigates. Maybe later they ruin your life.

The overzealous Secret Service wouldn’t so easily be able to come after NH state reps over salty speech, if NH were an independent country. And they would *choose* not to do so if NH merely had a strong independence movement like Scotland. Please consider the peaceable alternative to subservience and censorship…look into the concept of New Hampshire independence and entertain it with an open mind.’
