Democrats want to gut the Bill of Rights 4

By Tom Quiner

The Left has hijacked the Democratic Party. You see it in Democrats’ growing hostility towards the Bill of Rights.


Take the First Amendment, the most important. The Left has such revulsion for free speech they don’t like (aka conservative free speech) that they pretty much don’t allow it on college campuses. They shout down conservative speakers. They label them ‘haters.’ They create such a ruckus that expensive security is needed to protect the personal safety of conservative speakers, which pretty much prices them out of the market.

Hillary opposes some free speech

Speaking here in Iowa during the last election cycle, Hillary Clinton cried out for new anti free speech legislation:

“We need to fix our dysfunctional political system and get unaccountable money out of it once and for all, even if that takes a constitutional amendment.”

But limiting money that can be spent promoting your political view is the essence of free speech suppression, the Supreme Court has ruled. Thus the need for a constitutional amendment if Democrats are to have their way. A few years ago, 54 Democratic senators voted for such an amendment.

Dems want to criminalize client deniers

In California, Democrats pushed anti free speech legislation that criminalizes speech that opposes the “consensus” on climate change. And the previous Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, actually admitted that her Justice Department considered pursuing civil lawsuits against “climate change deniers.”

A YouGov poll found a majority of Democrats call for government controlled limits on what they consider “hate speech,” which to reiterate, is largely speech with which they disagree. Only 26% of Democrats opposed any limits on free speech.

Dems downgrade religious liberty

Religious liberty, such a bedrock of the American Dream, has long been dismissed by Democrats. They cheered when President Obama imposed the HHS mandate on Americans, forcing people of faith, such as the Little Sisters of the Poor, to violate their religious consciences, or be fined out of existence.

The Democratic Party of today embraces the same view on religion as the old Soviet Union: you are free to worship in your home, but keep it out of the public square. Just ask any florist or baker who gently decline to take on a same-sex wedding.


The most-loathed Amendment for Democrats these days has to be the Second Amendment. Democrats are playing a game with the American public. They say they merely want “common sense” gun regulations. But a Quinnipiac Poll shows that a third of all Democrats want the entire Amendment repealed. Eighty-two percent of Democrats call for an outright ban on semi-automatic firearms. As Democratic Congressman, Mike Doyle (PA), puts it:

“The Second Amendment needs some changing, because Americans don’t agree with it and we’ve had it.”

His fellow comrade in the House, Keith Ellison (MN), echoes his sentiments:

“I sure wish they would.”

To clarify, a third of all Democrats support it, NOT all Americans. I hope Democrats have the honesty to promote such a radical proposal, because it is the political kiss of death.

Democrats loathe a couple of other Amendments that comprise the Bill of Rights, but these aren’t trotted out as aggressively as the ones already mentioned.


Take the Fifth Amendment. Do you remember what Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats did a little less than two years ago? They conducted a “sit-in” in House Chambers demanding that anyone on the “no fly list” be denied the right to buy a gun, a blatant denial of due process. Even the ultra liberal ACLU said that was going to far.

It’s not easy to tack left of the ACLU, but that’s how far afield the Democratic Party has gotten from the party they used to be. Due process has become a political weapon.


We can’t conclude the conversation without referring to the most loathsome of all Amendments when it comes to modern day Obamacrats: the Tenth. This beautiful Amendment was supposed to limit the power of the federal government to those rights delegated to it by the states.

Franklin Roosevelt walked all over the Amendment, and Barack Obama finished the job by stomping on it.

Our bloated federal government is not the vision the Founders had for this country. The evisceration of the First, Second, and Fifth Amendments is also not the vision the Founders had for our country. If the modern Democratic Party has their way, they will soon be toast.

Conservative speaker and writer, Ben Shapiro, spoke at the University of California Berkeley yesterday. This is the latest speaker the Left tried hard to prevent from speaking.

After listening to Mr. Shapiro, it’s no wonder. The Left is a collection of disaffected losers who rage against everything conservative, because they have no rebuttal to the cogent arguments of right-thinkers. Here is one example. A student asked Mr. Shapiro this question: More…

The official religion of the Democratic Party Reply

By Tom Quiner

A religion is defined by dogma.

After all, what is a religion but a set of principles and beliefs; that is, dogmas.

The Roman Catholic Church has a set of dogmas that are virtually unchanged for 2000 years.

Protestantism has splintered into some 30,000 to 40,000 strains, each with their own sets up dogma.

Another religion has re-emerged with a vengeance. It has its own set of timeless dogmas, including:

√ Child sacrifice.

√ Sexual hedonism.

√ Nature worship.

This timeless religion has existed for thousands of years, and is called paganism. Let us call the modern strain “neo paganism.” It is the unspoken, but official, religion of the Democratic Party. Democrats believe in unfettered human abortion, in other words, child sacrifice to appease their god, Planned Parenthood.

Democrats believe in unfettered sexual freedom, whether it is so-called gay marriage or transgenderism, to appease their god: the gay lobby.

But unlike their unfettered approach to all things involving sex and reproduction, Democrats believe in draconian restrictions when it comes to energy production, consumption, and commerce to appease their god: nature worshipping environmental extremists.

As you can see, neo paganism has many deities.

Diane Feinstein is an orthodox neo pagan. She embraces each of the dogmatic principles presented above. It’s important to remember this in light of her recent nomination grilling of Amy Barrett for the United States Court of Appeals. Said Senator Feinstein:

“When you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you. And that’s of concern when you come to big issues that large numbers of people have fought for for years in this country.”

This is of concern to the Senator because Ms. Barrett is a Roman Catholic who has stated she embraces the dogma of her Church, the major competing religion to neo paganism.

Senator Dick Durbin continued the inquisition with this question:

“Do you consider yourself an orthodox Catholic?”

Durbin considers himself a Catholic,although clearly not an orthodox one who actually believes all of the dogmas of the Catholic Church. The intent was to disqualify Ms. Barrett as being a dogmatic extremist who would follow Rome instead of the Constitution, despite her response:

“It is never appropriate for a judge to apply their personal convictions, whether it derives from faith or personal conviction.”

Remember, Barrett is a protege of the late Antonin Scalia, a Constitutionalist. What else would an “orthodox” judge claim?

Several things are going on. For starters, in light of their loathing of Catholic dogma, Democrats are getting increasingly brazen in their anti Catholic bigotry. Even more, they are essentially establishing a litmus test to disqualify future “orthodox” Catholics from judgeships.

In psychological terms, Democrats are employing “projection”, which Wikipedia describes this way:

“Psychological projection is a theory in psychology in which humans defend themselves against their own unconscious impulses or qualities (both positive and negative) by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others.”

Democrats will go to the mat for their religion to uphold their rigid dogma. Although the First Amendment of the Constitution declares that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,” Democrats are feverishly establishing neo paganism as the official religion of the United States.

Since when did they let a little thing called the Constitution stand in their way?
