Oklahoma Journalists Given License to Quill

American media is more menacing than ever. So kudos to Oklahoma State Senator Nathan Dahm for proposing a bill to require those dangerous journalists to obtain a license to quill.

If passed, the bill would require journalists to undergo long overdue background checks, much-needed quarterly drug tests, and purchase a mandatory $1M liability policy. But that’s not even the best part.

Both national and local media outlets would also need to pay $250K yearly and obtain $50M in liability insurance to secure licensure. Eight hours of safety training by a prestigious right-wing education outfit would also be mandated as well as the following disclaimer before every story: “Warning: This entity is known to provide propaganda. Consuming propaganda may be detrimental to your health and the health of the republic.” No, we’re not making that up, that’s the real disclaimer!

Diamonds are forever and so is the Inner Party’s love for this proposed legislation. Should you concern yourself that Dahm is requiring more scrutiny for journalists than politicians or gun owners in Oklahoma? Absolutely not!

This forward-thinking, problem-solving young politician, must be channeling the work of the good man upstairs… Big Brother. Will it pass? Either way, it’s brilliant! Dream big and fall hard, little Sooner! Big Brother’s got your back!


  • Oklahoma State Senator Nathan Dahm has introduced the Common Sense Freedom of Press Control Act, requiring journalists to undergo checks and obtain licenses before publishing.

  • The bill also requires journalists to undergo regular drug tests and have $1M in liability insurance. Additionally, they'd be required to undergo eight hours of "safety training" by a right-wing education group.

  • The bill further mandates news organizations to include a warning about propaganda in their stories, raising censorship concerns. The measures it proposes would apply to all media outlets operating within the state.

  • It is seen as part of Oklahoma's broader trend towards restricting freedoms, including attempts to ban books. It has been criticized as potentially unconstitutional.
