‘Puter watches the Left’s reaction to last week’s Bruen ruling on gun rights and Dobbs ruling on abortion rights and marvels. Marvel is the wrong word, you say? What’s a better description for feeling when watches the Left’s utter insanity, willful denial of reality, and inability to understand our form of government?
The Left’s ignorance on abortion, guns, and government is so deep, wide, and endemic ‘Puter thought it deserved a deep dive on three topics:
- America: What Am It? How Do It Works?
- Guns: Why SCOTUS’ Decision Did Not Literally Create A Borg-like Race of Sentient, Bloodthirsty PewPewPew Sticks Hellbent On Murdering Your Children As They Sleep
- Abortion: Killing Your Children and Why You Have No Constitutional Right to Do It
Maybe later, if ‘Puter’s not half in the bag on his daily IV of fentanyl and pure ethanol mixed with Fresca (because Fresca has electrolytes), he’ll write a fourth installment tying everything up with a neat bow so that even the farthest gone leftist can understand it.
With that unpleasantness out of the way, onward to Part the First, America the Stupid-ful.
*clears throat* *drains a handle of Everclear* *commences to enlighten*
The Left as a general rule does not understand America. It does not understand from whence it came. It does not understand the founding. It does not understand its form of government. It does not understand its Constitution. Worse, the Left does not want to understand.
Without unnecessary editorialization, here are a few things the Left believes about America which just ain’t so:
- America is a pure democracy.
- The Founders intended the Constitution to be a “living” document.
- America runs on the “majority rules” principle.
- The Senate is unconstitutional and unjust.
- The Electoral College is unconstitutional and unjust.
- The Supreme Court correctly functions as a super-legislature when it implements leftist political policies the Left cannot secure sufficient votes for in Congress.
‘Puter could kill thousands of trees explaining the sheer lunacy behind these bedrock quasi-religious beliefs of the Left. For brevity’s sake, ‘Puter will briefly touch on why each identified bit of American heresy is wrong without getting into a deep dive into the legal and philosophical groundings.
Ready? Here goes.
America is a constitutional republic. Our Founders designed America as such to avoid the tyranny of the majority. If one cares to look, one can see the fear of an unfettered majority running roughshod over a minority running throughout the Constitution. Indeed, the Founders thought a pure democracy (50 percent plus one vote wins all) such a bad idea, they made amending the Constitution purposely difficult, requiring a supermajority of states to pass any amendment.
The Constitution’s amendment process’ high hurdles make clear the Founders did not intend the Constitution to be a “living document” as the current Left understands it. The Left’s conception of a “living Constitution” is “the Constitution means whatever we want it to mean to accomplish whatever we want to accomplish on any given day we hold power.” The Founders had no such intention that the Constitution be a documentary equivalent of Harry Potter’s room of requirement. The Founders had just fought a war against a colonial power to escape this sort of arbitrary exercise of power based on majority rule (or monarchical fiat).
The structure of both the Senate and the Electoral College were necessary to achieve unity among the colonies sufficient to permit formation of the United States. Without these provisions protecting states with small populations, the Constitution would not have been adopted and we would not have had a country. The entire revolutionary experiment would have died in its crib. That’s how critical the Constitution’s minority protection provisions were, and that’s why the Left’s current rejection of these provisions for its own political expediency is both stupid on steroids and exceptionally dangerous.
The Supreme Court is the branch of government mentioned in the Constitution which has the fewest responsibilities. From the beginning of our nation, the Court chafed under its constitutional restrictions and began making up fun and exciting new stuff for it to do outside its constitutionally granted original jurisdiction and its congressionally granted appellate authority over lower federal courts. The first big power grab was the Court-created concept of “judicial review” of the enactments of Congress and acts of the executive for compliance with the Constitution. It’s all been downhill from there leading to the Burger and Warren courts deciding they had a mandate to remake society in their own image. Thus, judicially created concepts like Miranda warnings, expansion of qualified immunity, abortion, and gay marriage.
Even if you think all of those judicial inventions are groovy, to a greater or lesser extent each stems from the Court usurping legislative authority to a greater or lesser extent. And the Court’s willingness to act as an unelected super-legislature operating on fiat, fascism, and feels to great effect since the late 1960s to, well, the Bruen and Dobbs decisions.
The uproar you hear is less about the Court defending Second Amendment rights in Bruen and returning to constitutional limits in Dobbs than it is about the Left realizing their method of end-running the will of the people as expressed by its duly elected legislative representatives is no longer available. Instead, the Left must now return to convincing Americans to accept their horrible ideas and elect horrible representatives who will enact the aforementioned horrible ideas.
Rather than set about following the Constitution and convincing voters, the Left seems to have determined no one wants the poop-burgers they’re selling so they’ll use the ever-popular-on-the-Left violence veto. Take it to the streets! Stick it to the man! Losers of the world unite, you have nothing to lose but your pathetic lives in your parents’ basements! Plus, you can take all the free stuff you can loot!
The Left’s reaction is consistent with what ‘Puter calls his Grand Unifying Theory of Leftist Politics. To wit and writ large, “EMOTIONS, PARTICULARLY RAGE, ARE A VALID PROGRESSIVE VETO OF ANY LEGITIMATE, VALID, AND CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENTAL ACT WITH WHICH PROGRESSIVES DISAGREE.”
This is why America got rioting in the streets in Washington (and elsewhere) after Hillary lost to the Bad Orange Man. How could anyone deny Hillary her birthright as the First Woman President?* Especially to that man. The nerve! The gall of those deplorables!! How dare they not meekly and obediently welcome our benevolent rule over their icky, pathetic, miserable lives!!ELEVENTY!!1!
You can run the litany of riots and destruction resulting from the Left’s operating doctrine of “rage uber alles.” Ferguson’s Defund-tha-Police-A-Palooza. Portland’s Summer of Siege. BLM’s Riot and Looting National Tour. Pussyhats on Pussies on Parade. Give the Left a cause, and they’ve got just the violent act of defiance to fit.
Despite what you’re hearing from media, from Democrats, from Progressives, and from your weepy friends, neither the Bruen nor the Dobbs decision is an “assault on the Constitution.” The Left is gaslighting you. It’s the Left, not the Right, that’s ready and willing to unleash violence on our nation to continue operating in an unconstitutional manner.
As such, it comes as no surprise to anyone who’s been paying attention that the Left’s first reaction to the Dobbs and Bruen decisions was to fire up the Rage-in-the-Streets Signal which Speaker Pelosi keeps in her palatial office in the Capitol. And the hordes of rage-filled leftist drones obeyed unquestioningly.
The Left is more than willing to sacrifice your well-being, your property, and even your life to get its way. Never forget this fact. Such are the wages of ignorance of basic civics, the rejection of law and reason, and the warm embrace of violent emotional outbursts as a form of street veto.
And such is the state of our nation today. More to come.
* Arguably, Mrs. Clinton would’ve been the third female president after Mrs. Wilson and Mrs. Roosevelt, each of whom appear to have usurped the presidential role for extended periods of time when their respective husbands were unable to do so due to terminal illnesses.
Always right, unless he isn’t, the infallible Ghettoputer F. X. Gormogons claims to be an in-law of the Volgi, although no one really believes this.
’Puter carefully follows economic and financial trends, legal affairs, and serves as the Gormogons’ financial and legal advisor. He successfully defended us against a lawsuit from a liquor distributor worth hundreds of thousands of dollars in unpaid deliveries of bootleg shandies.
The Geep has an IQ so high it is untestable and attempts to measure it have resulted in dangerously unstable results as well as injuries to researchers. Coincidentally, he publishes intelligence tests as a side gig.
His sarcasm is so highly developed it borders on the psychic, and he is often able to insult a person even before meeting them. ’Puter enjoys hunting small game with 000 slugs and punt guns, correcting homilies in real time at Mass, and undermining unions. ’Puter likes to wear a hockey mask and carry an axe into public campgrounds, where he bursts into people’s tents and screams. As you might expect, he has been shot several times but remains completely undeterred.
He assures us that his obsessive fawning over news stories involving women teachers sleeping with young students is not Freudian in any way, although he admits something similar once happened to him. Uniquely, ’Puter is unable to speak, read, or write Russian, but he is able to sing it fluently.
Geep joined the order in the mid-1980s. He arrived at the Castle door with dozens of steamer trunks and an inarticulate hissing creature of astonishingly low intelligence he calls “Sleestak.” Ghettoputer appears to make his wishes known to Sleestak, although no one is sure whether this is the result of complex sign language, expert body posture reading, or simply beating Sleestak with a rubber mallet.
‘Puter suggests the Czar suck it.
