A Miami law professor claims that freedom of speech needs to be eliminated and that the Bill of Rights must be rewritten to allow liberals to silence people.
University of Miami Law School professor Mary Anne Franks pushed out a disgusting op-ed at the Boston Globe saying that America’s rights need to be ended and replaced with the authoritarian left’s agenda.
“The First and Second Amendments tend to be interpreted in aggressively individualistic ways that ignore the reality of conflict among competing rights,” Franks bloviated.
“This in turn allows the most powerful members of society to reap the benefits of these constitutional rights at the expense of vulnerable groups,” she added. “Both amendments would be improved by explicitly situating individual rights within the framework of ‘domestic tranquility’ and the ‘general welfare’ set out in the Constitution’s preamble.”
“Every person has the right to freedom of expression, association, peaceful assembly, and petition of the government for redress of grievances, consistent with the rights of others to do the same and subject to responsibility for abuses. All conflicts of such rights shall be resolved in accordance with the principle of equality and dignity of all persons.”
“Both the freedom of religion and the freedom from religion shall be respected by the government. The government may not single out any religion for interference or endorsement, nor may it force any person to accept or adhere to any religious belief or practice.”
“All people have the right to bodily autonomy consistent with the right of other people to the same, including the right to defend themselves against unlawful force and the right of self-determination in reproductive matters. The government shall take reasonable measures to protect the health and safety of the public as a whole.”
This is yet another leftist attempting to destroy American freedom so that the left has an easier time forcing their anti-American policies on all of us without anything standing in their way.
As far as leftists are concerned, the U.S. Constitution is not the law of the land, but is only something that stands in the way of their agenda.
