Excuse the shouting there, but it’s so nice to know that we here in the States can call a spade a spade without considering how much our bank account converts to in pounds sterling (although I guess it’s Euros now, innit?):
American authors, journalists, and bloggers can breathe a sigh of relief: with broad bipartisan support, a short time ago President Obama signed a bill into law that makes sure that the awful and regressive libel laws in the UK cannot be enforced here in the United States.
Huzzah! Now all we have to deal with are the ridiculous SLAPPs from butt-hurt woomeisters. Which is a breeze compared to defending against a libel charge in Britain.
I have only one thing to say to the dumbshits who hoped Britain’s noxious laws would save them from good ol’ American dickishness:
HA HA HA HA FUCK YOU!
