    Why?

    It's not fair that famous people have a bigger voice than I do, so we should limit what they say.

    Sounds exactly like the logic of limiting corporate speech.

    It is to a real word,un is a prefix meaning not. In the general sense "unAmerican" means anything that violates the constitution and our country or something not American.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    When FDR planned to pack the Court with additional members so it would side with his New Deal better, THAT was a threat. Other than refusing to fund SCOTUS's very small budget (not going to happen), there's nothing Schumer or anyone else can do to threaten the Supreme Court via the law.

    I thought so. You can't answer it. You're afraid to.

    How can you say that somebody is not an american citizen by putting an un in front of it. Yes, technically it's a word but it means nothing.

    It is a form of sophistry. 'The he use and meaning of the term is by no means uniform in the US. Due in part to these historical associations with political abuses and jingoism, the attitudes of Americans toward the pejorative use of "Un-American" are often critical or suspicious. Moreover, Americans may vary widely in what they believe to be un-American."

    I agree, i would consider most american schools of political thought to have examples of un-american or unconstitutional beliefs.
