New York Times Publishes Hit Piece Against US Constitution As FBI Demonizes Everyday Americans As Possible Terrorists?
In a move that has shocked many Americans, the New York Times has published a hit piece against the US Constitution and its “outdated” ways.
The hit piece comes on the heels of a sitting justice of the Supreme Court recommending multiple other constitutions and human rights charters to Egypt over the very constitution she is tasked to protect.
In the hit piece, the author actually claims that the US Constitution guarantees “relatively few rights.
There are lots of possible reasons. The United States Constitution is terse and old, and it guarantees relatively few rights.
The commitment of some members of the Supreme Court to interpreting the Constitution according to its original meaning in the 18th century may send the signal that it is of little current use to, say, a new African nation.
And the Constitution’s waning influence may be part of a general decline in American power and prestige.
Relatively few rights? Interpreting the Constitution in its original form a bad thing? America losing its prestige because we follow our Constitution?
