“Those people who are online making fun of members of Congress are a disgrace,” she said during a speech in Homestead on Tuesday. “And there’s no need for anyone to think that is unacceptable.”
Wilson also seemed to imply that she wanted to work together with Big Tech to censor on-line speech.
“We’re going to shut them down and to work with whoever it is to shut them down, and they should be prosecuted.”
She also bizarrely claimed that mocking Congress is “against the law.”
“You cannot intimidate members of Congress – private members of Congress – it is against the law and it’s a shame in this United States of America.”
