Charles (Chuck) Schumer is the senior Senator from the state of New York. He was first elected to the state assembly when he was 23 years old, and has been in politics ever since, and is usually a reliable example of far left thinking.
He argues that the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision allowed Tea Party groups to “funnel millions of undisclosed dollars into campaigns with ads that distort the truth and attack government.” He wants the IRS and other government agencies to take on the Tea Party through their administrative powers.
Senator Schumer demands that the IRS use all its powers to make war on the First Amendment and free speech that he doesn’t like, in hopes of electing more Democrats. “We must redouble those efforts immediately” he said.
The Democrats master plan for annihilating the Tea Party movement calls for aggressive class warfare, demagoguery, and lies about the motives, goals and beliefs of Tea Party supporters. The Tea Party Schumer said, is successor to the “Know-Nothings, Prohibitionists, Father Coughlin, and Huey Long.”
That nice organization of ordinary people deeply offended by attacks on the Constitution, by ObamaCare, by government by executive order, by enormous federal debt, failed policies, unemployment, government fraud and waste, failed foreign policy and presidential lies and obfuscation — were so outraged that they went to Town Hall meetings and asked embarrassing questions, and they demonstrated, held protests, waved homemade signs that were covered in the nightly news. This would not do. Not only that, but the 2012 election turned many Democrats out of office and turned the House over to the despicable Republicans. The Tea Party must be stopped!
Schumer urges an orgy of new government spending. More financial aid for college students, more funding for kindergarten through grade 12, more roads and bridges, more job training programs, and more handouts for domestic industry. US corporate taxes, already the world’s highest, should be increases, the minimum wage should be raised and women need equal pay. (That myth never dies)
The electoral system “has been rigged to favor Tea Party candidates in Republican primaries” he said, calling for the system to be changed so Tea Party candidates can’t win elections. He essentially admitted he is terrified of the Tea Party and the threat it represents to the hardcore left.
So there you go. It’s the same old story. Free people vs. dependent people. A free country vs. 1984. Big government slips into totalitarianism, because people cannot be allowed to say unfavorable things about the government. They cannot be allowed to demonstrate, to object, to speak in public. At what point do the people become no longer free?
