So Let's Destroy America

From Andrew Klavan at The Daily Wire:
The confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court was a poignant victory for those of us who love the country our founders handed down to us. Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham and the rest of the Republicans are not people I usually think of as heroes. They were heroes. They defended a good judge, the rule of law and the American system in the face of nefarious political manipulations from the Democrats, outrageous bias and distortion by the press, and threatening mob behavior from protestors, many of whom were bought and paid for by the freedom-hating George Soros gang. I’m not sentimentalizing the GOP. They had their motives, like all of us. But when it counted, they found the spine to defend the machinery of liberty from the Luddite-like assault of the Left.

The reaction from the progs tells you a lot about the direction of that lost and radicalized faction. Basically it’s this: we lost, so let’s dismantle the country. “The Constitution of the United States has Failed,” bloviates Ian Millhiser, Justice Editor of the Soros-backed ThinkProgress. What follows is a 4,000 word screed against a nation that is the inspiration and chief defender of every free system on earth. It reads like the work of a 19-year-old who has just read him some Howard Zinn and wants to tell us how woke he is now.

“Americans speak of our Constitution as if it were a religious text. To label a law ‘unconstitutional’ is not simply to say that it violates some procedural rule or legal technicality, it is to label it fundamentally unAmerican. ... But our Constitution has not served us nearly as well as we would have been served by other systems adopted by our peer nations. Nor has it lived up to the expectations of its drafters.” (Read more.)

Meanwhile, are conservatives in danger? From Fox News:
Following the bitterly partisan, acrimonious confirmation battle over Associate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., warned in an interview on Tuesday that heated political rhetoric has the potential to turn deadly. "I fear that there's going to be an assassination," Paul told a Kentucky radio show. "I really worry that somebody is going to be killed, and that those who are ratcheting up the conversation ... they have to realize they bear some responsibility if this elevates to violence."

Paul's comments came the same day former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton declared that Democrats "cannot be civil" with Republicans any longer. Paul's wife, Kelley, revealed in a Breitbart News interview on Friday that she sleeps with a "loaded gun by my bed," has updated her home's security system and has "deadbolts all around my house." Kelley also wrote an op-ed published by CNN in which she called on Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., to tone down his rhetoric; in June, Booker suggested his supporters “get up in the face of congresspeople.”

The Kentucky senator reiterated his wife's criticism on Tuesday. "When people like Cory Booker say get up in their face ... What he doesn't realize is that for every 1,000 persons who want to get up in your face, one of them is going to be unstable enough to commit violence," Paul said. (Read more.)

They have all been spoon-fed on the book Rules For Radicals, and really do not care if someone gets assassinated because to them the 'end justifies the means'....and, PS, Roe V Wade was unconstitutional. The Supreme Court at the time decided a fetus is not a living thing therefore does not come under the protection of the Constitution. They made a decision that has murdered millions based on their interpretation of a biology, same as they are doing now in the gender controversy.
