DEMS HAVE ‘CONTEMPT’ FOR CONSTITUTION
Some have taken notice that Donna Brazile — a Democratic strategist and a vice-chair at the Democratic National Committee — recently tweeted: “We need a new constitution: Here’s how we save American democracy from charlatans, loudmouths and the 1 percent.” Powerline.com columnist Paul Mirengoff points out that Democratic uneasy phobias about the Constitution have been around for decades.
“Democrats have viewed the Constitution as an anachronistic barrier to their agenda since the days of Woodrow Wilson who, before entering politics, consistently argued as much. These days, though, their contempt for our founding document is becoming increasingly manifest,” he points out. “Why? For two reasons. First, the more radical the Democratic agenda, the greater the need to push back against the Constitution. Today’s agenda is more radical than it has ever been in my lifetime. Second, because public regard for the Constitution probably isn’t what it once was, thanks to the way American History is taught, Democrats can be more open about how they view the founding document.”
