The latest article from David French is a 90 mph gust of cuckservative humor that will knock you flat out of your chair if you read the whole thing:
“As I write this piece, millions of conservative Americans are searching their consciences, trying to decide whether they should vote for a man who openly refutes and mocks their core values, and thereby ensure that Hillary Clinton wins by three points rather than eight. They are making this decision against a backdrop of concern, intentionally stoked by well-meaning-but-deluded citizens, that America’s constitutional republic won’t survive a Clinton presidency. …”
The Constitution will save us! The Republic’s “separation of powers” will restrain Hillary Clinton! Conservative dweebs eat up this horseshit and seem to sincerely believe it. Like some kind of Melanesian cargo cult, the Constitution is a magical document to these people which they believe will protect them from all ills.
How do you, intellectually speaking, get to such a place in the world we live in? I mean seriously … how can you look at modern America and say with a straight face that you believe the Constitution limits the government?
1.) Has the Constitution stopped the howling, rioting mobs of feral negroes from assassinating police officers and torching cities like Milwaukee, Baltimore, Ferguson and Charlotte? NO!
2.) Has the Constitution stopped millions of illegal aliens – some say 11 million, but no one really knows how many are actually here – from crossing our border, squatting, and taking up permanent residence here? NO!
3.) Has the Constitution stopped 54 million abortions since Roe v. Wade an issue so dear to the heart of the Religious Right? NO!
4.) Has the Constitution saved the traditional definition of marriage from being erased and redefined to include gay marriage and who knows what’s next? NO!
5.) Has the Constitution stopped the NSA from invading your privacy? NO!
6.) Did the Constitution stop Lincoln and his army from invading the South and killing hundreds of thousands of Southerners who were defending their homes? NO!
7.) Has the Constitution halted the spread of political correctness and its commissars in the media and the universities from crushing independent thought and silencing dissent? NO!
8.) Has the Constitution stopped billionaires, corporations, the monied interests and their armies of lobbyists from corrupting the political system through bribing politicians? NO!
9.) Has the Constitution arrested the flow of American jobs overseas to Third World countries where corporations can ignore our tax, labor and environmental laws? NO!
10.) Has the Constitution stopped Obamacare or forcing you to buy any product which don’t want? NO!
11.) Has the Constitution stopped the spread of the American Empire overseas which now has military bases all over the world or all these endless wars and interventions? NO!
12.) Has the Constitution stopped Islamic terrorists from coming here and launching terrorist attacks? Will it do so in the future? NO!
13.) Has the Constitution protected the integrity of your neighborhood? Your business? Your right to freely associate with whom you want to associate and no one else? NO!
14.) Has the Constitution arrested the creation and growth of the vast redistributive welfare state we have now? NO!
15.) If constitutions haven’t protected gun rights and free speech in other Western countries, will our Constitution protect the First and Second Amendment indefinitely? NO!
16.) Has the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution prevented the federal government from usurping powers virtually all powers reserved to the states? NO!
17.) Has the Constitution halted our long term cultural degeneration? NO!
18.) Does the Constitution even protect you from racial discrimination as a White male in spite of all its hoary rhetoric about equal protection under the law? NO!
19.) Is the Constitution going to protect your little church from a SJW-controlled federal government including the White House, the Supreme Court and maybe Congress? NO!
20.) Has the Constitution stopped SJWs from taking over our college campuses, policing thought on campus, and creating and enforcing absurdity after absurdity there? NO!
At this point, if you believe the Constitution is going to protect your rights, protect you from the mob, protect you from the unlimited power of the federal government, after all it has already done, well, all I can is that either you are a fool, or you are in denial. You are telling yourself a bedtime story for you can go to sleep at night.
The Constitution is a piece of paper. In Third World countries like Zimbabwe, constitutions are meaningless documents. Power isn’t “limited” by their constitutions. That’s where we are at today in this country and that is the road we are headed down. That’s our destiny short of RADICAL CHANGE. Perhaps there was a time in the distant past when the Constitution restrained the federal government but we have long since left that era.
As for this bullshit about American exceptionalism, a glance around the rest of the Western world is sufficient to show that it doesn’t exist. All Western countries are facing the same civilizational crisis including the United States. The Constitution hasn’t protected us from the same problems we see on a daily basis in the UK, France and Germany.
Cuckservative happy talk isn’t going to protect your rights. It is not going to check the exercise of power. Only a countervailing force that aggressively pushes back can arrest these trends. Weak men who are incapable of summoning the will to even oppose the enemy should be subjected to ridicule. They hide behind the Constitution and trite phrases like “American Exceptionalism” to justify their own surrender. It is rationalization for doing what they always do, for their role in the system, which is to lose.
