The Constitution: Beacon Of Freedom Or Piece Of ‘Trash’?

Written by:

Published on: March 24, 2022

These days all kinds of ridiculous things are said against America, the Pledge of Allegiance, the flag and our history. Now, one leftist reporter calls the Constitution “trash.” It should be thrown away and replaced with something “more inclusive.”

Elie Mystal who is the “justice correspondent” for The Nation, said on “The View” recently, “The Constitution is kind of trash.”

This was not a momentary aberration. On another outlet, a reporter asked him, “[A]re you arguing that the Constitution needs to be scrapped altogether?”

He replied: “Sure. … But, I don’t think that’s going to happen. Like, if we could throw that out and start over with a new document that was more inclusive of everybody, that was written by everybody – at no point have black people, brown people or women had a say in actually writing the Constitution or the amendments to that Constitution – if we could throw that out and have a delegation of all Americans to write a new one, I would be all for that.”

Mystal also tweeted that he was proud to trigger “white wing media this morning by noting that their slaver’s organizing document is trash.”

How is it that the most durable government document in history, producing the most freedom for the most people the world has ever seen, is “trash”?

Millions of would-be refugees would love to come here to live in America, while many of our citizens exemplify what I have called “The Era of the Ungrateful American.”

Yet what sacrifices the founders made for us, for their posterity’s sake. In the Declaration of Independence, upon which the Constitution is predicated, the founders declared their pledge, with the help of God, to commit “our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor” for the American cause.

I once interviewed the late Dr. Walter Williams, professor of economics at George Mason University and syndicated columnist, on America’s spiritual roots.

He told me, “The United States Constitution has been very valuable just considering the evidence. Number one, we still have the Constitution, although, it’s not obeyed all the time. But the Constitution has led to the richest and the most powerful nation on the face of this earth and the greatest amount of personal liberty that people enjoy. That is why people try to get to the United States. People want to live in the United States. They want to become American citizens, and the reason why is the liberty that we have.”

Williams added: “Slavery has been mankind’s standard fare throughout his entire history. Even the word, slave, in most languages is slav; that is because the Slavic people were among the first to be enslaved. And Africans were among the last to be enslaved. And the great thing about the Western world is that we spent many resources on eliminating slavery.”

Mystal claimed that the Constitution excludes him because he’s black. Williams, also African-American, did not agree with that. Of course, tragically, the promise of the Constitution was initially denied to blacks, and it is a blot on our nation’s history.
