Oh GOOD GRIEF! Here comes the Nanny Staters again!

Taxing “violent images”? Anyone who favors giving the government that type of power is an idiot!

Via Politico:

[T]hose present for the meeting included Franklin Graham, son of the evangelist Billy Graham and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, and Barrett Duke, the vice president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, the Southern Baptist Convention’s public policy arm.

Graham, two people in the meeting said, told Biden the government should consider taxing media companies that broadcast violent images and produce violent video games.

“He floated ideas like the idea that violence should be taxed so that those proceeds would go to help victims and their families,” said Rabbi Julie Schonfeld, the executive vice president of the Rabbinical Assembly.

Biden told Graham that there was “no restriction on the ability to do that, there’s no legal reason why they couldn’t” tax violent images, Clark added.

Franklin Graham, another Overly Social Conservative who seemingly has no clue what liberty is. What a douche nozzle. Guess what Graham, when you give government to tax “violence” you also give them the authority to determine what “violence” is.
