Hillary Clinton demands personal info of comedians who made fun of her

Apparently, it’s not good to make fun of the woman who wants to be America’s first Empress.  Recently, some comedians made fun of Hillary Clinton during performances at the Laugh Factory.  This, according to Judicial Watch, did not sit too well with the campaign, which has demanded personal information of the comedians involved.

Moreover, the campaign has demanded that the Laugh Factory take down a short video of their performance.  That video, which can be seen here, is entitled “Hillary Clinton vs. the First Amendment.”

“I have received complains before but never a call like this, threatening to put me out of business if I don’t cut the video,” said club owner James Masada.

Judicial Watch added:

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

Masada told Judicial Watch that, as soon as the video got posted on the Laugh Factory website, he received a phone call from a “prominent” person inside Clinton’s campaign. “He said the video was disgusting and asked who put me up to this,” Masada said. The Clinton staffer, who Masada did not want to identify, also demanded to know the names and phone numbers of the comedians that appear in the video. Masada refused and hung up. He insists that the comedy stage is a sanctuary for freedom of speech no matter who is offended. “Just last night we had (Emmy-award winner) Dana Carvey doing Donald Trump and it was hilarious,” Masada said.

If Clinton is willing to go this far now, as a candidate, imagine what will happen if she is ever elected to the White House.

If this sounds familiar, it should.  It’s eerily reminiscent of Annise Parker, the lesbian mayor of Houston, Texas, who once demanded pastors hand over sermons so she could see what was being taught about homosexuality and being said about her.

It’s become quite clear that liberals no longer support the idea of free speech — they simply reserve it for themselves.
