The most unchallenged lie in American politics


Duff quotes, of all people, the American Thinker.

He should, of course, read up on it in my posts on the topic.

The offending quotation:

The Leftist constitution includes the rights to abortion, anal intercourse, and gay marriage.

The Right, reading the “supreme law of the land” as it was actually written, sees no such rights anywhere in the U.S. Constitution.

The Thinker is right about the left, but lying about the right.

The right is still in love with Lochner, Scalia embraced the lie of incorporation via due process to foist the 2nd Amendment on the states, and the libertarians go there with their First Amendment absolutism via privileges or immunities.

All of these fake strict constructionists embrace the Air Force, paper money, the Federal Reserve System, judicial review, and on and on and on.

On reflection, nobody but an idiot insists judges could or should enforce the actual US Constitution.

That is pap for rubes who march about on patriotic holidays wearing three-cornered hats and carrying replica muskets.

For them and for children, like Santa and the Elf on the Shelf.

Bumper sticker drivel.

So what are the real differences between the ways the left and right use the constitution?

They all use it to favor their own sides in the class and culture wars of American politics.

And they are on opposite sides.
