FL Gov. Rick Scott Supports Censorship


Caricature by DonkeyHotey.

Rick Scott has banned the words "climate change" to be used in state reports and correspondence back in 2015. It’s now back in the news after one of the worst hurricanes in Florida’s history hit the state. Now, let’s look at the definition of "censorship":

censorship
/ˈsensərSHip
noun
1. The suppression or prohibition of any parts of books, films, news, etc. that are considered obscene, politically unacceptable, or a threat to security. (Oxford definitions)

Scott considers this term to be politically unacceptable and has restricted it’s use. This is a perfect example of censorship.

What has the GOP come to? What has our country come to?

  1. SMH and going WTF. The evidence of climate change is right on his doorstep and he thinks he can deny it by removing two words from state reports. I always thought the guy was nuts, now I’m sure of it.

Go ahead... I can hear your thoughts. Please share with the rest!
