Because radical left college professors always think they’re smarter than America’s Founders were, the University of Miami’s Mary Anne Franks (author of “The Cult of the Constitution: Our Deadly Devotion to Guns and Free Speech,” which I’m sure is on your bookshelf) is calling for a redo of the “deeply flawed” First and Second Amendments.
And how are two of the greatest advances in civil rights in history “flawed”? You’ll have to wade through a lot of four-dollar words, but in a nutshell (emphasis on “nut”): people are harming “vulnerable groups” by asserting their individual rights, so those need to be reined in to protect “equality and the collective good.”
Bottom line: you’re not allowed to contradict what the government deems good or defend yourself from it, which is pretty much the kind of dictatorial thinking that caused the Founders to write the First and Second Amendments in the first place.
No, thanks. I like the Bill of Rights just fine the way it is. It doesn’t need to be rewritten any more than does George Orwell, who predicted this story perfectly in 1945 when he wrote, “One has to belong to the intelligentsia to believe things like that: no ordinary man could be such a fool.”
