If you want to understand liberalism and where the left wants to take America, it was on full display yesterday in the United States Senate.
Surprisingly, outside of the conservative blogosphere and some conservative talk radio, little was said about one of the most outrageous assaults on freedom in modern time.
What was said and what is the threat?
Yesterday, in the United States Senate, New York Senator Chuck Schumer, Democrat and fan boy for dictators around the world made a startling pronouncement.
He said, “I believe there ought to be limits because the First Amendment is not absolute. No amendment is absolute. You can’t scream ‘fire’ falsely in a crowded theater. We have libel laws. We have anti-pornography laws. All of those are limits on the First Amendment. Well, what could be more important than the wellspring of our democracy? And certain limits on First Amendment rights that if left unfettered, destroy the equality — any semblance of equality in our democracy — of course would be allowed by the Constitution.”
“And the new theorists on the Supreme Court who don’t believe that, I am not sure where their motivation comes from, but they are just so wrong. They are just so wrong.”
Gee Chuck, don’t wait. Go rip the Constitution from the National Archives building in Washington and just rip it to shreds.
Schumer was speaking in favor of the DISCLOSE Act which would prevent political organizations, primarily conservative organizations, from protecting their donors by not being forced to disclose them.
Why do conservative donors need protection?
Ask the donors to the Mitt Romney campaign that Barack Obama has singled out. Ask the donors to ALEC who have been harassed and threatened. Ask the donors who gave to the Prop 8 campaigns in California who had to endure harassment from leftist activists outraged that they exercised their First Amendment rights.
What Schumer really believes is that there should be free speech for the Party of Treason and left wing activists and not for conservatives.
If Chuck Schumer had his way, America would be a one party socialist state.
The outrage is not simply that a United States Senator said that on the floor of the Senate. He is in the leadership of the Senate Democrats. Has any Democrat said a negative word about what he said? Has any Republican Senator jumped up to complain that Schumer wants to scrap our rights of free speech? No, they are too busy being “bipartisan.”
Where are the outraged newspapers calling for Schumer to at least retract his statement, if not resign for wanting to eliminate free speech?
The answer is there are none.
There are different types of speech. The type of speech that Schumer wants to restrict is political speech. This is the type of speech our founding fathers and the Supreme Court have always said is the most protected classification of speech.
Of course Chuck Schumer and the Party of Treason do not like this. They want anyone who disagrees with them silenced. They do not believe in freedom or the bill of rights.
This is the danger America currently faces. One of our two major political parties no longer believes in freedom or liberty. Instead of believing in God given, inalienable rights, the Democrats simply believe that our liberties are grants from the government, which can be taken or given at the whim of the government.
We are living in a perilous era when people who control parts of our government believe that.
Chuck Schumer’s beliefs are right in line with Hugo Chavez, the Castro brothers, Mao, Pol Pot, Stalin, Lenin and Hitler.
Political speech was the one thing they would not allow. With people like Chuck Schumer in positions of power, we edge closer towards the day where liberty and freedom are nothing but memories and stories we will tell our grand children about.
Americans are facing difficult times ahead of us. Not only from the out-of-control government but from some American citizens themselves. Obama wants to bind the American peoples in chains of bondage. Obama wants to strip away every right we have. Americans have to make the choice, freedom or bondage.
They don't call him "Chuckie Schmucky" in New York for nothing. He is vile.
worse is the silence of republicans. complicit in our undoing, and they know better.
They are all going to the same place.
Because money is the mother's milk of politics, every effort must be made by the left to curtail spending by traditional Americans in support of the freedom and liberty. Disclosure permits the statists to personally identify contributors, subjecting them to assaults on their lives, liberty and property to stem the flow of cash in support of those who oppose the socialist ideology the leftists promote.
Schumer is a joke played on us, and the citizens of the state of New York, I put him in the same class as Reid, Polosi, They have been there way to long and don't care what they say. Funny thing is that if we were to go to a socialist state they would be out of a job, don't you think?
First of all, Chuck Schumer keeps calling our form of government a Democracy. Wrong, we are a Republic not a Democracy. A Republic of the People, By the People and For the People, not for a select chosen few who want to turn us in a Socialistic/Marxist/Communistic society. Schumer's ideas describe a Country controlled by a Dictator who will decides what we can and cannot do, say, eat, sleep or any a number of other activities. A Government who throws away its Senior population and chooses to let us die rather than live a productive life until the Lord takes us home to heaven. A Government who dumbs down each generation to bow down and adore their Dictator or if not be on the losing end of the food chain. A Government that wants to tax the population into submission by taking away their income and forcing them under total government control. A Government that is not founded on the value and principles of our Founding Fathers but on the failed ideals of despots and tyrants just because they want control over people. That's not America. That's a description of Nazi Germany or Castro's Cuba or the dictatorship of Chavez, Mao, Pol Pot, Stalin and Lenin.
That's not an America anyone who loves this Country wants. We will not allow a usurper in chief to destroy our Country. We will not sit by and watch our beloved Country be destroyed by a Tyrannt who hates America and Americans. We will do everything within our power to save America for the sake of ourselves and future generations to come. We have to or die trying. God Help Us All.
Chuckie is as Big of a Reprobate as Lyndon Johnson but "Chuckie is no cowboy.....too crude of activity....maybe needle point".
Both wants to SILENCE....White Christian America ! Lyndon "did his part, while a member of congress in 1953 by getting the White Christian American churches under his "Tax-Free status plan" (as long as these churches stayed out of Politics) thus funding for "Mega Churches" started but "White Christian America" was silenced from "calling out Liberal Socialists".
Chuckie wants "White Christian Americans" silenced on the subjects of abortion, homosexuality, pedoplilia, birth control, same sex partners adopting children, pornography, same sex marriage, etc.
Well, Chuckie should retire to San Francisco !
Chuck Schumer just showed that he knows nothing about our constitution, we are a republic not a democracy! So when anyone ever opens their mouths and says democracy, I just subtract from whatever comment they are making because they are idiots and don't know anything about which they speak. It's time that we throw out all the politicians in Washington DC along with those in the States that can't even understand the basic fact that we have a Republican form of government and not a Democracy. They would like us to live in a democracy (simple majority rules) rather than a republic (governed by laws thereby protecting the minority) because they could run roughshod over all decency.
Oh "He knows The Constitution (inside and out) ! He just does not want to adhere to it !
The "Counterfeit Representatives in Washington" like to play dumb but they are not dumb...they are Outlaws (Do Not abide by the Law).
They are worse than outlaws, they are traitors.
