One of the big talking points of the left these days is that the founders were racist, misogynistic slave owners who wrote a flawed constitution. Therefore, they claim, the entire nation needs to be rebuilt. Among their grievances (copied and pasted from a blue check):
- The US Constitution is profoundly out of date in key ways & flawed in others.
- Only the military and law enforcement should have guns (and even many in law enforcement should not.)
- Higher taxes for the rich and corporations.
- There is no place for religion in government or government agencies. It should not even be mentioned.
- The MAGA and far right extremists movements are in fact deplorable and beyond reasoning with.
- When your opponents are posing an existential threat to our society we do whatever we need to do to beat them (w/in the law.)
- I believe functioning democracy depends on compromise…up to a point. Every compromise with evil is a victory for evil.(note: see point 2, 5, 6, and 8)
- We should expand the Supreme Court to 13 justices, impose term limits, limit its jurisdiction and set and enforce ethical standards for Supreme Court justices and those who work with or influence them.
The entire list is the leftist/Communist wish list. You can see where anyone who would oppose them would be, right? You are deplorable and should be eliminated for the good of the planet, because you are evil and can’t be reasoned with.
This is why our constitution is so important. It’s also why I refuse to be disarmed.
