Time Warner CEO: Democrats a Bigger Threat to the First Amendment Than Trump

There’s one liberal in America that gets it. Jeff Bewkes, the CEO of Time Warner, is a liberal, but he understands that the Democrats, not Trump, are a bigger threat to the First Amendment.

Democrats have actively campaigned to repeal Citizens United, which is really a free speech case. They have also suggested taking away free speech from corporations, though all corporations are are people assembled together in a for profit endeavor.

Bewkes suggested, accurately, that Trump really cannot do anything about the First Amendment in the way he threatened on the campaign trail, but that Democrats have a long history of trying to rein in the First Amendment.

I’m glad to see he gets it.
