American Future Fund released an online ad thanking Senator Mitch McConnell for fighting for free speech.  The ad addresses the serious threat the Obama team is posing to all Americans First Amendment right of free speech.

Last week, Obama campaign senior strategist, David Axelrod, met privately with potential donors to Obama’s Super PAC and declared that if Obama is re-elected, he will stop at almost nothing to undo the ruling that made super PACs possible – including a Constitutional amendment.  Because they disapprove of the opinions expressed by some, Obama and his team think there is a flaw in the First Amendment.

Not only is the attack on free speech outrageous, the act of using their own super PAC to squash those same free speech rights for thousands of American citizens in the future is the height of hypocrisy.

Thankfully, leaders like US Senator Mitch McConnell are standing up to Obama and his team.  He is calling them out for their bullying tactics and is urging all Americans to unite.

“Don’t be fooled,” stated AFF Founder Nick Ryan.  “Obama and his team are attempting to hide their radical and dangerous plans under a cloak of so-called democracy.  What they really want is to suppress the voices of those who disagree with them.  They want more control over what is said and who is saying it.  It’s un-American.  It’s wrong.”

Thank you Senator McConnell for defending free speech.

Tell President Obama: You swore an oath.  Uphold the First Amendment.
