MSM Propaganda Wants Americans to Think US Constitution is Outdated

The recent advent ofdemonization of patriots, constitutionalists and “conspiracy theorists” would not be complete without an all-out attack on the founding document that defines our Constitutional Republic – the US Constitution.

Earlier this year, Louis Michael Seidman, professor of Constitutional Law at Georgetown University, suggested that Americans give on adhering to the US Constitution because the document is largely outdated.

Seidman cares not whether Barack Obama is a natural-born citizen. He also contends that “we have a right to the kind of country we want” and we should not let ourselves be ruled by “{the founding fathers] people who died over two centuries ago and knew nothing of our country as it exists today.”

Seidman continues on to say: “If we are to take back our own country, we have to start making decisions for ourselves, and stop deferring to an ancient and outdated document.”

In an op-ed piece, Seidman furthers his argument by stating: “As the nation teeters at the edge of fiscal chaos, observers are reaching the conclusion that the American system of government is broken.

But almost no one blames the culprit: our insistence on obedience to the Constitution, with all its archaic, idiosyncratic and downright evil provisions.”

It is this professor’s contention that America’s “obsession with the Constitution has saddled us with a dysfunctional political system, kept us from debating the merits of divisive issues and inflamed our public discourse. Instead of arguing about what is to be done, we argue about what James Madison might have wanted done 225 years ago.”

Seidman explains that the Founding Fathers were rebels who violated the Constitution often and as they pleased; asserting that former President Thomas Jefferson believed that “every constitution should expire after a single generation.”

Seidman states incorrectly that “our sometimes flagrant disregard of the Constitution has not produced chaos or totalitarianism; on the contrary, it has helped us to grow and prosper.”

For the sake of political correctness, Seidman ends his op-ed piece calling for an open discussion and that the American public “demand that we make a good-faith effort to understand the views of others, rather than as a tool to force others to give up their moral and political judgments.”

And the “utopian” ideology of a country governed by “We the People” is a pipedream and only when Americans extract themselves “from constitutional bondage . . . [can we] give real freedom a chance.”

Mainstream propaganda simply states that the Founding Fathers were “a varied collection of individuals. They were the politicians of their day. When you look at them as individuals, most of them were not possessed of particularly outstanding abilities. They were people who were operating in the context of a specific culture in a specific time and a specific place.”

And because of the alleged inherent phallic nature of the US Constitution, the Founding Fathers allowed for Amendments to be made to correct their mistakes.

Andrew Napolitano asserts that without the respect afforded by the US government to the US Constitution it could be reduced to “a myth to be foisted upon the voters, but not as a historic delegation of power that lawfully limits the federal government.”

Recently another op-ed piece was published that gave several reasons why the US Constitution should be rewritten because the US has failed to live up to the expectations of being an example of liberty and democracy. The answer is the drafting of a new Constitution “one that actually applies to [Americans] and the times we live in.”

This author states that because the Founding Fathers were “rich old guys” who did not include a “tangible provision against corruption or greed” that the document needs a makeover.

Considering also since the federal government ignores the 4th Amendment with warrantless searches and seizures with the passage of the Patriot Act, American’s right to privacy is already compromised.

Everything from the 1st Amendment to the 27th Amendment do not protect freedom of speech for all as an employment wage is not the right of all US citizens to determine individually.

The author then flips the argument to ask the question: “What good is a constitution if it can be amended at any point in time?”

Should not popular opinion decide the fate of an entire nation of people?

While the US Constitution is being ripped apart, the author attacks the right of each state of form a militia because when this was stated in the 2nd Amendment, men carried muskets. The right should be revoked because “military-grade automatic weaponry, bazookas, tanks” can be purchased by average citizens.

The last argument is that the US Constitution penned in 1787 and “a lot has happened in 226 years” and people nowadays “don’t rely on pigeons, horseback, and quill and parchment to communicate long distance.”
