Apparently, actual riots, violence, and cancelling the American culture is not enough for democrat candidate Nate McMurray. He also demands that the First Amendment rights of “Trump supporters” be erased.

Breitbart News reported:

Nate McMurray, the Democrat candidate for New York’s 27th Congressional District, urged Twitter followers Wednesday to “report” Trump supporters.

“When you see fake videos, when you see racism, when you hear support for Trump, do not roll your eyes, do not play nice, do not worry about hurting someone’s feelings, CALL IT OUT — REPORT IT — FIGHT IT,” he wrote:

When you see fake videos, when you see racism, when you hear support for Trump…

Do not roll your eyes

Do not play nice

Do not worry about hurting someone’s feelings

CALL IT OUT—REPORT IT—FIGHT IT

We can not reward or tolerate ignorance. It normalizes it.

Thursday, immigration lawyer Matthew Kolken shared a screenshot of McMurray’s tweet and said, “This is a dangerous chill of 1st Amendment freedoms”:

Far left Democratic candidate for Congress calls for people to report “support” for Trump. The same candidate said if you support Trump you are a traitor, and hence guilty of treason.

This is a dangerous chill of 1st Amendment freedoms. #1A

However, McMurray appeared to have amended the “REPORT IT – FIGHT IT” command with “TALK TO THEM – DO NOT GO WITH THE FLOW” in another tweet on Friday:

If a neighbor shares a racist video and says it’s “funny.”

If your family member says, “I think the media never gives Trump a break.”

Do not roll your eyes

Do not play nice

Do not worry about hurt feelings

CALL IT OUT—TALK TO THEM—DO NOT GO WITH THE FLOW

It normalizes it

McMurray’s campaign website said there was nothing he valued more than the trust of his constituents.

He continued:

As your congressman, I will earn back your trust. You have my word that every step of the way, the investments I fight for in Washington will be for you, your family and our community. There are no party lines that stop corruption, so I will never let party politics distract me from protecting public trust and making sure my office is transparent and that we are holding those who profit from corruption accountable to the rule of law.

Also on Friday, McMurray described himself as a progressive, which to him meant “what we did before isn’t good enough.”

“America is a work in progress. We must do better tomorrow than we did today. I don’t want to make America ‘great again,’ that’s regressive. Forward. Better. Inch by inch, upon the sacrifices of each generation,” he tweeted.

Later, McMurray took a veiled swipe at President Trump and also told Twitter followers to report so-called racist content on social media:

REPORT RACIST CONTENT ON SOCIAL MEDIA

Including any nonsense Trump spews today.

However, several Twitter users fired back and asked if he was going to report them for exercising their right to free speech.

“I’m a Trump supporter. Whatcha gonna do about it? Are you gonna report me? This is the United States of America and we’re free citizens. I know you liberals are desperate to change that and abolish our freedoms,” one person said.

“In other words, Silence any opinion Nate doesn’t approve of! Do not express yourself or share any thoughts Nate does not agree with! Instead of a civilized debate, shout down the other person and ignore other possibilities! Individualism & free thoughts are forbidden!” another person wrote.
