Lawmaker discusses the harrasment and terrorism tactics of the pro-smoking ban activistsAt this audio file New Hampshire Senator Johnson describes the threats and intimidation tactics used by the pro-smoking ban activists. Excerpt below:
“I’ve been told I’m promoting cancer and that’s not the worst of it … In my opinion they crossed the line and have taking a giant step backwards. And I’m not alone in this, and I know that I’m not alone in this. I look around this room at many of my colleagues and they’ve told me the very same stories, and they agree that it’s gone too far. This is all about respect for us as people, and our families. As an elected official I have a deep respect for my constituents and the right to their opinion, but when I’m told that I’m promoting cancer, that’s downright disrespectful. When a member’s wife receives a phone call at 2:00 in the afternoon when he’s most likely not at home and she’s told that if he doesn’t change his vote he’s going to have to deal with the health consequences and questioning how he can live with himself and she with him, that’s deplorable, and disrespectful. I wish I could tell you this is an isolated incident but it’s unfortunately its not. Its happened more than once to more than one of us, and that’s one time too many. So I ask you once again, when does this stop?”
And now that secondhand smoke has been proven to be 25,000 times safer than OSHA air quality regulations, there's no telling what the pharmaceutical funded activists will do or say.
