State Proposes Law To Protect Drivers Who ‘Accidentally’ Run Over Protesters

During Barack Hussein Obama’s sham of a presidency, it has become annoyingly common for race-baiting liberal protesters to block traffic on major roadways so they can publicize their leftist agenda. Now, one state has had enough of this and is fighting back in a big way.

Conservative Tribune reported that a North Dakota lawmaker has drawn up a bill that would protect drivers who accidentally strike protesters standing in the middle of a road.

“It’s shifting the burden of proof from the motor vehicle driver to the pedestrian,” said Republican state Rep. Keith Kempenich, who admitted that the drawn out Dakota Access Pipeline protests near the Standing Rock reservation inspired the bill he introduced, known as HB 1203.

“They’re not there for the protesters,” Kempenich said of the public roadways. “They’re (the protesters) intentionally putting themselves in danger.”

The bill has not yet been sent to committee hearings and it will likely undergo a series of changes in the next few weeks. It’s unclear at this time how much support a bill like this would garner.

Liberal critics have slammed the bill, claiming that it would legalize murder of protesters by letting drivers run them down, but this is a blatant lie. Instead, the bill makes it clear that it will only apply to drivers who “inadvertently” hit someone blocking traffic, and would not apply to someone who deliberately drives their car through a crowd.

“This bill puts the onus on somebody who’s made a conscious decision to put themselves (sic) in harm’s way,” Kempenich added. “You can protest all you want, but you can’t protest up on a roadway. It’s dangerous for everybody.”
