NH Speaker of the House removes state rep from committee for expressing free speech


Vengeance is mine, sayeth the Speaker of the New Hampshire House. Three-term State Representative, James Spillane took to social media recently and posted a photo of a dead squirrel to gain reactions from vegans and leftists. It is important to note that Rep. Spillane killed the squirrel because it was eating eggs, breaking into fencing, and stealing food on his own private property.

In response to Representative Spillane’s free speech, the Speaker of the House decided, as of today, to remove Rep. Spillane from his committee on Fish & Game.

Last I checked, freedom of speech is a natural right, which is recognized in the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. It appears the only reason that Rep. Spillane was kicked off his committee because he offended a few people.

I wonder how the Speaker would have handled Rep. Sherry Frost, when she insulted students in her school for wearing MAGA hats, and when she went on twitter, multiple times, cussing like a sailor? Or when Sherry Frost said that white men make her feel homicidal?

I wonder how the Speaker would have handled Rep. Katherine Rogers when she pleaded guilty to assault against Susan Olsen, a Second Amendment advocate and founding member of Women’s Defense League?

The good thing is that we don’t have to wonder, because the Speaker of the House did absolutely nothing to those state representatives, not when he was minority leader and not in his current position as Speaker. No one was removed from their committee; not even a slap on the wrist.

We know Ray Buckley is behind this whole ordeal, as he has already made Rep. Spillane his “special project” for the next election. The New Hampshire Democrats are living up the reputation of their party of Marxist tactics. With numerous examples of bad behavior and infractions from Democrats and not even a slap on the wrist, one would think that posting a photo of a dead squirrel on social media would not be a big deal at all.

According to the Democrats, if you feel like fatally assaulting people you disagree with, that is fine. Also, if you go on Twitter and violently mock students for their political opinions, that is perfectly acceptable, as long as you are in their club. But heaven forbid a Republican post a photo of a dead squirrel. Perhaps if the squirrel were considered a clump cells, then it might be celebrated by the Democrats.

Feel free to contact Speaker Steve Shurtleff and ask him why he disapproves of free speech. While you are at it, you are also encouraged to ask him why he and his party dislike liberty and businesses.
