The greatest satire of modern "liberal" thought you'll read all year.
This new human rights law will set up state surveillance of intolerant citizens, including those who voice anti-feminist views and those who voice overt approval of a totalitarian ideology. Intolerant citizens will not only be arrested, but will also be sent to special re-education facilities designed to instill values of tolerance, and the law will also require all media outlets to promote a climate of tolerance. The law carefully takes freedom of expression into account.The only question is whether this is intended as satire.

Nobody has the right to take away rights from others. Nobody has the freedom to take away freedoms from others.How can that not be satire?
Anyone guilty of hate speech â€“ which should carry criminal penalties of 25 years to life â€“ should be sent to special prisons designed to re-educate them and to instill values of tolerance, freedom, democracy, and human rights in them.

You don't go onto Twitter to defend your satire. (I say "defend", but there's not a lot of actual conversation going on there; "restate the points of the article as people yell at me for being a twit" is probably more correct. Twitter sucks as a venue for this kind of conversation.)
That doesn't mean it's honest, but if it is not, at this point it is not humor or wit, but just plain trolling.

I'm still pretty convinced it's satire; after declaring her undying support for freedom of speech she provides twenty numbered and increasingly deranged paragraphs of things she'd outlaw, climaxing with:
20. Speech which is found to be irresponsible, unethical, antisocial, hurtful, impolite, uncivil, abusive, distasteful, and/or unacceptable in general.
