Last December, Lieu threatened legislative action against the home-improvement chain Lowe’s after it pulled its ads from a TV show called All American Muslim. Even if one agrees that pulling the ads was bigoted, as the always politically correct Lieu claims, shouldn’t private companies have the right to pick and choose where they advertise?
Lieu did author one good bill, which celebrates the anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution. That makes it even more ironic that he and his allies spent most of the legislative year shredding the document they want to celebrate.
The Constitution was designed to put boundaries around government so that it protects our life, liberty, and property without intruding on our freedoms. California’s government, in its hubris, recognizes no such limits. Until Californians rediscover the importance of limiting their government, we will be at the mercy of the petty totalitarians who run the Capitol.
