Rush Limbaugh to be Sent to Mental Hospital Under “Stasi” Snitch Program?
Washington Times calls on Florida Governor to veto plan

Given the fact that Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw is set to launch a $1 million dollar program which will encourage Floridians to report on people who “hate government,” how long before Palm Beach resident Rush Limbaugh is sent to a Soviet-style mental hospital?
The example seems like a stretch but it’s not a far cry from what actually could happen if Bradshaw is able to implement what numerous outraged civil libertarians are labeling a modern incarnation of the East German Stasi informant system.
As we reported yesterday, Bradshaw is advocating a program that would see authorities harass individuals who make anti-government statements. The campaign would also include “public service announcements to encourage local citizens to report their neighbors.”
“We want people to call us if the guy down the street says he hates the government, hates the mayor and he’s gonna shoot him,” Bradshaw said. “What does it hurt to have somebody knock on a door and ask, ‘Hey, is everything OK?’”
The Washington Times editorial board didn’t mince their words when they labeled this monstrosity, “A Stasi for Palm Beach,” calling on Florida Governor Rick Scott to veto the plan.
