By FITSNews || Over the years, we’ve had plenty of fun at the expense of South Carolina’s bass-ackwards state government. With its dumb ass laws (and even dumber ass lawmakers), is it really any wonder that the Palmetto State perpetually ranks first in everything bad and last in everything good? Or that half of our citizens can’t walk and chew gum simultaneously?
Of course not. When you put fools in charge of the ship, don’t be surprised when you end up with a ship of fools.
Anyway, in the long and storied history of utterly retarded legislation in South Carolina, we may have finally found the legal statute that takes the cake for sheer stupidity, which we think you’ll agree is saying something.
It’s called the “Subversive Activities Registration Act,” and it requires terrorists in South Carolina to … get this … register with the S.C. Secretary of State’s office before they start plotting to violently overthrow the government.
From the law:
Every member of a subversive organization, or an organization subject to foreign control, every foreign agent and every person who advocates, teaches, advises or practices the duty, necessity or propriety of controlling, conducting, seizing or overthrowing the government of the United States, of this State or of any political subdivision thereof by force or violence or other unlawful means, who resides, transacts any business or attempts to influence political action in this State, shall register with the Secretary of State on the forms and at the times prescribed by him.
Amazingly, there’s even a friggin’ form to fill out, people – with a $5.00 processing fee.
Oh, and God forbid you fail to register before you start planning your jihad, because that’s punishable by a $25,000 fine and/ or up to ten years imprisonment.
Bureaucracy for terrorists. It’s almost as stupid as justice for terrorists.
Of course, if there’s something criminal about wanting to overthrow the morons running this state, then lock us up and throw away the key …
