I’m not exaggerating.
By my count at least four of the 10 amendments are no longer operative, as far as the left is concerned.
Those include -
The 1st: I’m for free speech, but…
The 2nd: When guns are outlawed only the government will have guns. Yay!
The 4th: A warrant is just a piece of paper, amirite?
6th: Jury trials are fun, as long as the right side wins!
(Yep, an attack on the 1st, the 2nd, and the 6th. Added bonus: it’s the far right that’s “eroding trust in law enforcement”?)
Don’t worry, though. The American Civil Liberties Union will stand up for your rights! Like the right not to be forced to be injected with a barely tested biotechnology whose long-term risks and benefits are unknown.
Yeah, about that -
Oh well. Forget the ACLU. Guess we’ll have to defend the Constitution all by ourselves.
Lucky for the left, the right to abortion is NOWHERE in the Bill of Rights, so that one can stay!
The time has long since passed to remind the professional parasites who have wormed their way into positions of power & influence that our rights do not come from weak-minded men & women, but are a natural birth-right.
Protect 1A and 2A at all costs. We do not have one without the other. See Australia.
We had a hint of this a few years ago, when some poll questioned college students who invoked the "need" to limit the First Amendment so prohibit "hate speech."
That was a head-shaker at the time. Now, it's horrifying that more people seem to want to limit such a fundamental right. I guess that's because they graduated and have infiltrated the Real World.
More than ever we need a major push back in November, to restore sanity.
These people are scaring the ever-living shit out of me.
That’s what happens when our educational system sucks and only teaches victim mentality.
Youngsters, Hollywood vermin and assorted other hipsters are always flashing the peace sign, wearing tie die, and generally trying to show they are "hip" to the ethos of the 60's. What these clueless dolts do not realize is that they are missing the paramount messages of the time, don't mess with my freedom and don't EVER trust "the state" (aka "the man"), especially when it is trying to get us into another pointless war.
Welcome to the red pill.
We are now living in Alice in Wonderland's "Through The Looking Glass" where, as Humpty Dumpty put it "Words mean what I say they mean, no more no less. The issue is who shall be the master, me or the words." So much for the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Just words.
I can't take it anymore. I need to ignore some news. Biden essentially said, 'The people shouldn't get to dictate laws.' It's a M-Fing DEMOCRACY! That's the entire point & what the word means!
"I’m not prepared to leave that to the whims and the — and the — of the public at the moment in local areas."
The c19 shots would have been stopped a long time ago if the six Republican SCOTUS justices genuinely believed in the sanctity of life.
I think the 5th and 8th are also out of style. 5th - think assets frozen or civil forfeiture. 8th - excessive bail - think about the Jan 6th people. held without any bail for over a year. For them, also cruel and unusual punishment. Solitary confinement for misdemeanors.
We are very far gone and I don't see anything stopping the eventual elimination of all of these rights - at leas for those that disagree with the left!
The Leftists/Communists/Socialists are no longer hiding in the weeds. Time for the rest of us to come to terms with our core beliefs.
The left and the woke world view the liberties guaranteed to individuals under the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, especially the First and Second Amendments, as a threat to their agenda of complete brainwashing , indoctrination and subjugation of the American public to their ideological trilogy of systemic racism, gender fludity and climate change. The woke world dreams of shoving what Mark Levin has correctly diagnosed as American Marxism down our throats and hearts via bureaucratic fiat or executive order with the help of the legacy media and Big Tech.
Liberals not only “don’t believe in” the Bill of Rights, they have utter contempt for them. What they absolutely despise is seeing humans free of other humans.
Everything they do is a false pretense for the actual purpose of seeing other humans subjugated. Ultimately that’s what they crave.
4 down, 6 to go, to get to <fill in the Communist country>
Gee Alex, where have you been for the past decade or two????
I saw a bumper sticker for the ACLU yesterday that read ”Dissent is Patriotic." Oh, the irony!
In the Liberals' world, Madison, Jefferson, Paine, Washington, Hancock et al are "far right extremists".
Yeah, we know this. We’ve known for a while. Glad you finally see it too!
"At the A.C.L.U., we are not shy about defending civil liberties." Yes you are. And have been for my whole life. The ACLU has a bogus reputation due to defending those Skokie Nazis many decades ago. They never aided the religious right in the 80s and 90s. And they are all in for green passes and the surveillance state now.
This is why we need two Countries, and it's going to happen, one way or another. Likely violently. It's the only way at this point.
OH, btw, your The Left has always been like this Alex. You just never noticed it before, you were/are in it. The bubble and echo chamber is real, enjoy.
Alex you should write an article about the FDA recently limiting the user of J&J after reviewing blood clot data. https://archive.ph/UQGDb That was one of the big three and ~17 million Americans got the J&J shot. The FDA finally acknowledged at least 60 cases of thrombosis for J&J and 9 deaths. We all know the MSM won't cover this.
Whenever the left or the right, for that matter, says we are a democracy, always remember- we are a republic- governed not by majority rule, but by LAWS
The lockdowns and the closing of business that were not deemed “essential” also the shuttering of religious services was a big warning sign the Bill of Rights were not being preserved.
Love your writing!
I am old enough to remember the Left invoking Free Speech back in the 60's. How things have changed. Now that they are in charge of the Media and the Government, (for now) they just ignore the Constitution and do what they want by Executive action and Cabinet level regulatory overreach. And once we get used to them doing it without pushback, it just sticks. I hope If the Republican's take back the House and Senate in November, they begin impeachment of all the cabinet members, starting with Mayorkas, then Yellen, then Granholm, then Austin, then Blinken, keep the Dems occupied defending those departments, which should hamstring them and tamp down more insane green new deal bullshit, even if not successful. Leave Joe and Kamala to stew in the WH basement, impotent lame ducks. Every instance where the Biden Administration has ignored the Constitution, we impeach the Secretary of that Department, and clean house down to the janitors in 2024.
Republican Governors could really help too, suing Biden over Federal overreach and banding together to fight back. Missouri and Louisiana are a good start, but more states need to join. And deep red states in the west need to get on board. Idaho, Utah, Montana, Wyoming, Arizona, should stand with the Dakotas and the Midwest and the Southeast. The 10th amendment is the most ignored of all. IF all the states with Republican Governors/legislatures worked together, it would send a strong message to the people all over who agree, that help is on the way and we can take back the country from the left idiots. I used to think the Left was just misguided, but I am now convinced they are evil. They want to destroy the US as a free nation. By that i mean the United States and US the citizens. Biden( his handlers of course, Biden can't control his own daily agenda) is paving the road to Serfdom, no joke.
My wish list, but I fear the Republican leadership doesn't have the balls to do any of it.
The regressive "Progressives" have been trying to deep-six the Constitution for roughly 100 years, so this isn't new news. They thought, and think, that it's old-fashioned and out of date for modern times. However, I'm with Calvin Coolidge: "It is often asserted that the world has made a great deal of progress since 1776, that we have had new thoughts and experiences which have given us a great advance over the people of that day, and that we may therefore very well discard their conclusions for something more modern. But that reasoning cannot be applied to this great charter. If all men are created equal, that is final. If they are endowed with inalienable rights, that is final. If governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, that is final. No advance, no progress can be made beyond these propositions."
True, Alex. And sad. Republic if you can keep it. Thank you, Alex, for arguing in favor of keeping it.
Re second amendment, if you outlaw guns, only government and criminals will have guns. Some would say there is overlap in those two categories.
Amnesty International is also a joke, human rights organization said nothing about mandates and lockdowns. These people are not principled liberals, they are propagandized leftist fascist globalists.
I think the ACLU has long been overrated as far as defending our civil liberties and helping get justice for those oppressed by tyrants.
The left is guided ideologically by the writings of Marcuse who advocated the long march of taking over American institutions, and destroying the family as a transmitter of moral and ethical values , Zinn's completely fallacious view of American history, and the radical environmentalists who are green on the outside and red on the inside and whose views pose a dire threat to American national security and energy self sufficiency. The left must be fought in every venue where it seeks to dominate the discussion and silence dissenting views.
All of these except 2A used to be core liberal beliefs before Trump. It’s amazing what he did to the 2 parties. Trump served his purpose now I hope he fades away, Alex, you still standing by your claim the 2020 election being free and fair? Some pretty damning evidence is coming out. Might want to rethink your position.
Yes the line has truly between blurred between 'Hate Speech' and 'Speech You Hate'. Speaking of the ACLU, our own equivalents up here in the Not So Great White North (the one that bars 7 million peope from leaving the country by air, sea or road... yes, that one!) are not much better. Damn, that kool-aid must be good!!!
It started with not arresting hillary for deleting her emails with a cloth
The ACLU is about freedom as much as the Southern Poverty Law Center is about helping the poor.
You can block yourself from thinking about what has to be done to stop these WEF/NWO Marxist Democrats from further destroying the entire fabric of the U.S. Everyone is afraid to say it out loud. But everyone knows that the day will come (soon) when the forces of evil and good will meet on the battlefield. Yes an actual battlefield where blood will be shed. You are all in denial but it's coming.
Pull all the founders out of their graves to witness this and I have no doubt that a majority would vote to round up most of the Democrat leadership including senior government officials on charges of treason for extreme abuses of power against the people.
Leftists are not liberals. They are totalitarians.
I guess you didn't mention the 4th amendment because Ed Snowdon has tried so hard to warn us all about that and no one really seemed to give a damn. My Degoogled phone is on the way, and I'm tempted to tie it to the wall with a string, personally.
Once again, the Anti-federalists were correct. Although I disagree with Patrick Henry regarding his desire for direct democracy, which his opponents the federalists were so against and rightfully so. Mob rule is no way to run a country, but individual liberty is easily denigrated in a republic turned super-state as well.
"Make the best of this new government - say it is composed by anything but inspiration - you ought to be extremely cautious, watchful, jealous of your liberty; for, instead of securing your rights, you may lose them forever. If a wrong step be now made, the republic may be lost forever."
It's fascinating how the liberals have created themselves to be the majority and the minority simultaneously. They can use the power of the federal system to protect their ideologies by claiming repressed minority status whilst at the same time claim to have the voice of the majority on issues they would like to have the dominant voice. Well played rainbow haired gender-fluids. Well played.
Time for a US South and US North???? I am in, I will gladly leave the North-not much left here to see except drugs, crime, corruption and sh_t in our streets!
Let's Go Brandon!!
Yep, they're not even pretending anymore. They've always felt this way but would always kind of hide it. "of course I believe in the Constitution!" Now they're so emboldened by their control of government, media, popular culture and academia that they're not even bothering. And now they're dog whistling for people to harm Supreme Court justices to get their way. At this point I think this country is in need of an amicable divorce, for everyone's good.
There is no reason to expect the left to take its collective foot off the gas. They’ve invited confrontation for decades.
Liberal Values = Corporate Values
As the leftists create a lawless and crime ridden society, they naturally want to come after your guns. That is the only thing standing between you and their lawless power mongering! Time to legally remove them from office!
You are correct and it should horrify reasonable people on both the left and the right.
Just for the record, they’re not “liberals”, at least in any literal sense of the word.
No worries really. 95% of the Marxist whack jobs got jabbed. And boosted. So over the next few years their ranks will thin to the point where they will be irrelevant.
I just posted on another site just how massive a shift is coming in the Nov elections. Unlike we have EVER seen based on the doubling and tripling down of the radical lib agenda. This of course "assumes" elections go off as expected, and we all know what a desperate commiecRAT is capable of. I mean there really is no room to maneuver now in that corner they have backed themselves into...intentionally too.
What 10th Amendment!?
Today's"left" bears no resemblance to "the left" of the 1970s.
Back in the day, "the left" focused on issues of wages, education, low-wage worker importation, and unionization.
Today: it is "hate" speech, censorship, defund the police, and a collection of other issues that won't harm the incomes of the Western Oligarchy. By design.
"It's a big club; we aren't in it."
