The justices of the Supreme Court aren’t “mean,” the Constitution is

June 28th, 2007

Syndicated columnist Robyn Blumner thinks the conservative Justices on the Supreme Court are “mean.”

“The Roberts Court in its short tenure already has earned the moniker “mean.”

The addition of Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito to the heartless duo of Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas has cemented a plurality for cruelty. If there’s a choice between casting a lot for the little guy, viagra usa drugstore tipping a case toward compassion or putting a foot on his throat, viagra buy site it’s a safe bet that these four will be getting out their jackboots.”

The real reason she thinks they’re “mean” is that they care more about the actual “meaning” of the Constitution than the do about finding new rights in the Constitution so that it can “mean” what she wants it to mean:

  • African Americans are more “equal” than whites and Asians (Affirmative Action).
  • The First Amendment doesn’t apply if someone’s feelings get hurt.
  • The Right to Bear arms can’t be protected because someone could get hurt

The truth is, the Constitution is a harsh mistress. It protects our right to say nasty things to each other. It protects our right to believe and worship things others might find objectionable. It does not guarantee equality of outcome, only equality before the law.

Thank God, we have a few justices on the Supreme Court who still understand that the Constitution is about the greater good, not just feeling good.

    Well said. I wish more people would realize that America OWES you nothing. You have the freedom to succeed or fail, depending upon your talents and drive. YOU owe it to yourself to be the best at whatever you set your hand to.
