Schumer And Democrats Using New KKK To Intimidate Tea Party
You gotta love liberal Democrats. Chuck Schumer (D. N.Y.) is calling for Obama to bypass Congress using executive orders to institute legislation allowing the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to curtail Tea Party group funding.
According to Schumer, “One of the great advantages the Tea Party has is the huge holes in our campaign finance laws [by] the ill advised decision [Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission]. Obviously the Tea Party elites gained extraordinary influence by being able to funnel millions of dollars into campaigns with ads that distort the truth and attack government.”
First let me say, this isn’t an attack on the Tea Party, as such; it is an attack on our First Amendment right to free speech. It is a clear and clarion call from a sitting Democrat legislator demanding that the President violate the separation of powers by usurping the legislative process that belongs to Congress.
Last November, Obama proposed legislation that would order IRS restrictions on campaign activity by tax-exempt groups. Specifically, it cracks down on “candidate-related political activity” including advocacy “for a clearly identified political candidate or candidates of a political party made within 60 days of a general election (or within 30 days of a primary election) and clearly identify a candidate or political party.”
This is also clearly an attempt by Democrats to scare concerned citizens, who believe in their First Amendment rights, into silence and withdrawal. Democrats believe that fear of the IRS will discourage people from becoming involved in our political system. It is the equivalent of Democrats using their KKK to intimidate blacks and frighten them into abandoning their pursuit to be electorally involved. And when that effort failed, Democrats resorted to Jim Crow tactics. Which is exactly the tactic Schumer is now using by demanding Obama bypass Congress and force through what Obama cannot get passed through constitutional parameters.
Schumer claimed, “our very electoral structure has been rigged to favor Tea Party candidates in Republican primaries.” Why is Schumer so concerned about what takes place within Republican primaries? And since when was it any of his business which Republicans win in their own primary races?
He is concerned because the Tea Party is a movement, and movements are the action of the people not a handful of establishment politicos. He is concerned for the same reasons that Karl Rove and Reince Priebus hate the Tea Party. It is because We the People are waking up; the giant is beginning to stir, if you will, and that spells doom for invidious marplots like Schumer, et al.
Schumer has raised no such concerns about the NAACP flagrantly violating their tax-exempt status election after election. I know this for a fact because there was a cacophony of deafening silence when I was leading the national complaint against the NAACP violating their tax-exemption.
Schumer also called for a primary system “where all voters, members of every party, can vote and the top two vote-getters, regardless of party, then enter a run-off.” Now, I’m sure there is a well-meaning person somewhere who doesn’t grasp the import of what Schumer is there advocating, and, so, they nod their head in agreement because it sounds reasonable.
But that kind of “reasonable” isn’t in the Constitution. There is a bedrock reason our Founding Fathers didn’t create our election process like that. Not least of which was to minimize opportunity for corruption and maximize the participation and representation of We the People.
We the People will not be swayed, and we must refuse to be silenced. This is our country, it is our government, and it is our Constitution. We are the key-holders, and we must prepare to serve eviction notice to those violating the promise they, in effect, signed when they took office.
Schumer may be protected because he is in a state where the Democrat governor brazenly tells We the People that conservatives and those who oppose infanticide are not welcome. But the great majority of those occupying Congress with him do not live in states with governors who look upon the unborn as diseases to exterminate similar to the way Germans looked upon Jews. Let’s show him what it is truly like to be the exclusive member of the “special ed class” which is how those in Congress refer to the Congressional Black Caucus.
