Senate Democrats Planning Assault on the First Amendment

06/09/2016

Following a report outlining Senate Democrats’ plans for an all out assault against free speech protections in the First Amendment, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:

“Americans’ rights are codified in the Constitution, not in Democratic messaging bills. It’s clear that Sen. Chuck Schumer doesn’t want conservatives to play a role in the national public policy discussion. With the introduction of this agenda, Sen. Schumer made it clear that he is willing to use the power of the state to try to intimidate ideological or political opponents.”

“These bills are the latest affirmation by Democrats that they are only interested in ensuring political speech that they favor. For years, the Constitution has been subjected to the political whims of politicians. This document has outlasted them all. It will outlast Sen. Schumer’s folly.”
