There is NO distinction between the First Amendment
and the Second.
One enforces, and reinforces the other. Either direction.
Obama Is A "Radical" Who Is "Dangerous" To Free Speech Says.....Mitch McConnell
From Drew at Ace
Today, Mitch McConnell is going to speak at AEI (11:30 eastern, livestream here) and he gave Breitbart News a preview:
“This is a dangerous, radical administration,” said McConnell.
“I’m going to lay out a long litany of abuses pursued by the Obama
Administration and its allies against its political opponents,”
McConnell said. “It’s reminiscent of the Nixon administration. It’s much
more pervasive than Clinton. They have their enemies list. They’re
checking it twice. They’re going to go after those that have been
naughty and not nice.”
McConnell is incensed over the administration’s use of
government and nongovernmental resources to target its political
enemies. “They’ve used the IRS, the FEC, the FCC, the SEC, their allies
in the Obama campaign to go after people who disagree with them. The
Obama campaign has rifled through the divorce records of a major donor
to an opposing super PAC. The government itself is intimidating donors.
Appointees at the IRS and other agencies are pursuing similar efforts to
ferret out who is contributing to outside groups critical of the
administration so that they can scare them off the playing field and
shut them up.”
Most frightening of all, says McConnell, is that David Axelrod,
head of the president’s re-election campaign and former White House
honcho, has stated that “he wants to amend the First Amendment – the
ultimate act of radicalism – to give to the federal government the
ability to control the speech of American citizens who band together to
pursue a political cause.
Sen. McConnell says that there is a “full-scale effort underway to intimidate and harass their opponents.
It wouldn’t surprise me if they’re coordinating with outside left-wing
groups to be supportive of their causes. That’s their prerogative.”
