Ruth Bader Ginsburg – the leftist Supreme Court Justice who thinks abortion is terrific because it keeps down “populations we don’t want to have too many of” (Gee, what could she mean by that?) – presided over a fancy-schmancy gay wedding between a couple of very, very elite leftist gays, and apparently made it a big deal to invoke the Constitution.
On Sunday afternoon, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, an outspoken supporter of same-sex marriage, used the occasion of presiding over a same-sex wedding ceremony to cite the Constitution as the source of her power to wed the two men.
The guests, thrilled that Ginsburg invoked the Constitution, clapped with great gusto.
Of course they did. Leftists are nothing if not trained seals conditioned to applaud when their leftist pieties are invoked; John Stewart, David Letterman, Ed Schultz, and Bill Maher make a good living throwing rhetorical fish to the left’s trained seals.
If only Justice Ginsburg had as much concern over gay people’s Constitutional Right to bear arms in self-defense as she does to the imaginary right to get married. But in her view, gays have no right to bear arms, and neither does anyone else.
The word “marriage” appears nowhere in the Constitution. The right to bear arms is right up there at Number 2, and stated most explicitly. But using the magic leftist ability to find things in the Constitution that aren’t there, and deny the existence of things that are there quite explicitly (the 2nd and 10th Amendments, for example), she finds a ‘right’ to gay marriage while denying the right to self-defense.
Personally, I’d be delighted to live in a country where happily married gay couples had closets full of assault weapons. – Glenn Reynolds.
On a positive note, a Federal Judge has struck down Washington DC’s “You can only exercise your 2nd Amendment Rights if the State decides you have a good reason to” gun control law. These “may issue” laws are set up so that only the politically connected can have access to firearms in self-defense.
Washington DC is the jurisdiction where a man was prosecuted for the possession of a spent and useless shotgun shell; which is what the left calls a “Common Sense Gun Law.”
