Schumer gets pushback on the Upper East Side

Several aspects of the current political situation are bothering me, and I am also worried about a few small problems in my personal life. So, yesterday morning, I decided to take a walk around the city. The weather was beautiful. As I walked, I noticed that the neighborhood was peppered with homemade signs, questioning the integrity of Senator Chuck Schumer. The first was on 77th and Lexington, right next to the subway entrance:

Another (at the top of this post) was on 85th and 3rd. Another was on a bus shelter at 84th Street.

Of course, these signs seem to be part of a guerrilla tactic. But then nobody seemed to be tearing down the signs. The Upper East Side is the heart of “Schumer Country.” There’s also a lot of Jewish people who really love Obama, living here. Senator Schumer has neglected them, and me. I voted for him in the past, but I’m probably not going to vote for him again.

    I just took action to tell Senator Chuck Schumer (i.e., #WarmongerChuck) not to lead Democrats into war with Iran.
    I hope you will too!

    Thanks J Lewis. Read, signed and shared

    Great that these posters are up around New York. Spot on.

    I know Schumer just voted against his first trade deal ever. The Unions have been leaving him because he abandoned them. Schumer voted against Obama’s TPP. A first for Schumer to do the right thing in a long time for American workers

    It is time people around the country realized that those they are voting for has a sick loyalty to an alien nation over their own country, and that policies pertaining to said alien nation is far more important than the Americans who vote for them. We should see more posters like this around the country. Schumer has shown his true colors, always has, but maybe this time his his constituents will not like the fact that he is openly supporting an interfering foreign leader over their own President.

    Obama or Bibi, who is the real POTUS? GOP chose Bibi en masse, bribed traitors all. Disgusting.
    Re DNC, who is shomer, who’s schumer? Issues that you won’t see discussed in any depth on US TV. “America is easily moved.”–Bibi Netanyahu. Freshman class of congress back from Israel yet? Nebraska member already shows how much he likes freebies & cash from AIPAC.
