Schumer: It’s Anti-American For David Koch To Exercise His First Amendment Rights


Senator Chuck Schumer appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and Joe Scarborough asked him if he would repudiate Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for calling philanthropist David Koch “un-American.” Schumer tried to wiggle his way out of it, but Scarborough (to his credit) wouldn’t let him. Schumer finally had to admit that, yes, he does believe it’s anti-American for Mr. Koch to exercise his First Amendment rights. “I think what Harry Reid was saying was the actions are un-American. And they are, and they should change,” he said. But that’s not all, he also said “David Koch’s commercials, I don’t think they should be allowed.” But of course he has no problem with commercials funded by left wing millionaires. What a jerk.
