MLK's Content of Character is Claimed by Democrats but not Practiced
New York, NY…January 16, 2010 – The senior Senator from New York has joined the ranks of Janeane Garofalo, Bill Maher, Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews in insulting Americans who exercise their rights in a Democratic manner. These stalwarts of Liberalism claim to uphold fiercely the rights of all, unless you hold a position that does not suit them. Massachusetts residents have legitimate policy concerns about Martha Coakley and a 1st Amendment Right to voice them.
Senator Schumer stated in an official email "Martha Coakley is running to fill the rest of Ted Kennedy's term, and her opponent is a far-right tea-bagger Republican." The accurate definition of "tea-bagger" or any derivation is an offensive sexual slur referring to the placement of a man's testicles on a woman's chin. One can only wonder how the women in Senator Schumer's offices, residents of New York or any woman who interacts with the Senator feel about his public and official use of such an offensive sexual slur in referring to American citizens he is elected to represent.
On the weekend when Americans celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. who fought for all to be judged by the content of one's character, is this the best character Senator Schumer has to offer?
He owes an apology to all Americans especially women. Senator Schumer is not misinformed, and I welcome the opportunity to speak with him in any forum on issues not insults.
