Republicans have a problem with our Constitution…and I’m starting to wonder if the people at The Daily Show read this site. You see, last night, Jon Stewart discussed how the Right loves the Constitution, but only so long as it protects them.
LezGetReal brought that up recently too. It seems as if the Constitution only applies to those who are Republicans, at least according to Republican pundits. Forget all the rest of your rights, because, according to them, you don’t have any.
Stewart focuses on a particular grouping of Republican talking points regarding Dzhokhar and Tsarnaev. The people on the Right were very upset over what has happened with him and want to take away Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s constitutional rights no matter what they are. They also want to take away the rights of the wife of Tamerlan Tsarnaev and a lot of others too.
Forget freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom from cruel and unusual punishment and so forth. The Republicans only believe in those if you happen to be a Republican.
Oh, and, never ever, ever think that the fact that any terrorists out there can use guns- gun regulation is a bridge too far. We can’t restrict Al Qaida’s right to own guns!
