Here Comes Fascism!

Just when you think you've run out of ways to be stunned by Republican fascist bullshit:

Republicans propose bill making it legal for police to kill protesters

Republican senator Jim Tomes introduced Senate Bill 285 in January, though it was given its first committee hearing on Wednesday. The bill authorizes city officials to use “any means necessary” to break up a group of 10 or more protesters blocking traffic, “even to the point of costing lives.”
“A responsible public official shall, not later than 15 minutes after learning of a mass traffic obstruction in the official’s jurisdiction, dispatch all available law enforcement officers … with directions to use any means necessary to clear the roads of the persons unlawfully obstructing vehicular traffic,” the legislation reads.

How do you propose legislation like this in the US of A and not be immediately relieved of your position as legislator and escorted to jail? Like oh I'm sorry that it clearly fascist legislation, please go directly to jail, do not pass Go, do not collect $200.

If this is how it's going to be then I don't have any qualms about the American people protecting themselves from Senator Tomes by any means necessary.
