Skip to comments.'Propaganda'?! U.S. Congressman Slanders the Constitution
Posted on 01/05/2011 10:27:49 AM PST by JesseWatters
For more than 200 years, Americans have revered the Constitution as the law of the land, but the GOP and tea party heralding of the document in recent months - and the planned recitation on the House floor Thursday - have caused some Democrats to worry that the charter is being misconstrued as the immutable word of God. "They are reading it like a sacred text," said Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), the outgoing chairman of the House Judiciary subcommittee on the Constitution, civil rights and civil liberties

As for me, it is sacred text and must be followed at all costs. Those who don’t want to follow our Constitution, need to leave this country.
Since the left won’t read it, someone has to.
Looks like all the Democrats got the memo. These people take an oath to uphold the Constitution. It’s not the Word of God, but it is the founding document for the country and its government. It’s also the document that allows Nadler to sit on his posterior in Congress.
Nadler, the super-sized constitutional scholar is uncorked.
How would Nadler know if it was a sacred text? TO him nothing is sacred.
Sacred texts have a way of making some feel guilty.
I love that these liberals won’t shut up. They are exposing their utter hatred of America at every turn. Americans will vote accordingly.
Mr. Nadler is a putz. Period.
The Constitution is the contract between the Government and the People.
Live up to it Congress, or lose your jobs.
Any elected official who does not adhere to the Constitution is exceeding his authority.
If they don’t like the Constitution then they can amend it something that has been done many many times. The importance of the Constitution is that it is supposed to provide an immutable common foundation on which our legal system is to stand. When we allow purposeful misinterpreting or ignoring the Constitution then we are no longer a nation of law but a nation where the whims of men are the law and individual liberty is never safe.
In before the first Jaba the Hut pic is posted.
Any elected official who doesn’t live up to the Constitution is breaking the oath he took when he took office and should first be removed from office, then jailed for perjury.
If Jaaba can be oushed through the door, the Red Adiposity, the useful infidel, should be hurled out of office..
“pushed”.. I would say defenestrated, but the kinetics are such that nearby houses might be leveled..
In a sense he is being open by declaring the Constitution is without meaning for him. Unfortunately, those for whom it has meaning are no longer in charge.
Oh, Nads...I guessed Weiner.
Off by just a few miles-—not really a bad guess.
They hit the hate trifecta. God, America and the constitution.
Hopefully our side will use this to our advantage, but I doubt it will occur to them.
Is it any surprise the RATs hate America, the constitution and God?
I thought these Democratic a$$holes swore to support and defend the Constitution? Why should it then upset them?
Nadler is one of those disgusting, arrogant pukes — who are legion in the Democratic party — who thinks he is wiser and more intelligent than our Founding Fathers. Unfortunately, the president is of the same ilk.
Nadler is lucky that there isn’t a per-chin tax.
The Constitution was bought, paid for and has been protected with the blood of Americans.
IT IS A SACRED DOCUMENT !!!

My congressman- socialist/rubber-stamp democrat/Working Families Party/ACORN.
That’s an old pic. Nadler had gastric-bypass surgery and no longer eats his Republican opponent ever election day.
perhaps if the democrats had not thrown out the laws of the land, the republicans would not have to read them on the floor as a reminder of the laws of the land in such a symbolic way.
It is high time that the socialists who have labeled themselves liberals and progressives learned that this is the law. It must be upheld and that anyone who wishes to circumvent that is a traitor.
It is a sacred text... it is the foundation this nation is built on
But to try to say that republicans present it as a religious text is just Nadler’s way of saying he never read it ...not wanting to have a state/church conflict ... better to make it up as you go along
It is the basic law of the land.
He is worried about a holocaust
Immutable, fixed rules disempowers elitists.
They derive their power through the arbitrary and unequal application of law.
The Constitution is a covenant, a contract.
The congressman SWORE to uphold and defend this covenant against all enemies, domestic and foreign.
He has violated his oath and exposed himself as an *ENEMY* of the Constitution. As such, he should be arrested for perjury and treason, and brought to justice.
JerryNadlered districts have a lot to do with it.
Get a lot of “plantation” voters roped off into the same district, and you have a guarantee of a ‘rat being elected.
How long before Democrats decide to ignore the part that establishes the House of Representatives, since they no longer control it.
Btw= have fun passing out copies whenever & where ever possible.
This morning I left a pocket Constitution with the McDonald's manager to give to someone I knew would be in later who requested it for a court case where corrupt mayor was trying to get his land for development.
It IS sacred Congressman, and it is also the document you swore to uphold and defend. No it is not immutable. If you don’t see it as sacred then you are in the wrong business.
If I am inject a bit of history into a thread devoted to the present day egregious UnAmericanism of the elected Liberal, a very specific line from one of the ‘dead, white, males’ who created the government we now enjoy the blessings of comes to mind:
“The Constitution is sacredly obligatory upon all”
President George Washington said that a long time ago. He was, of course, telling it as it was then.
We must be sure it is that way now.
And we must teach it diligently unto our children if America is to exist in the future.
Gets off soap box . . .
Good thinking, that is about the Constitution as tracts.
Now I have to pass out tracts for the Gospel and the Constitution that gives me the right to pass out gospel tracts.
So, what happened to the self righteous crap non-answer from now "outgoing / outgone" nut job Nancy p?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of Calif. gestures during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, July 30, 2009, to discuss health care.
(CNSNews.com) When CNSNews.com asked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday where the Constitution authorized Congress to order Americans to buy health insurance--a mandate included in both the House and Senate versions of the health care bill--Pelosi dismissed the question by saying: Are you serious? Are you serious?
Pelosi's press secretary later responded to written follow-up questions from CNSNews.com by emailing CNSNews.com a press release on the Constitutionality of Health Insurance Reform, that argues that Congress derives the authority to mandate that people purchase health insurance from its constitutional power to regulate interstate commerce.
The exchange with Speaker Pelosi on Thursday occurred as follows:
CNSNews.com: Madam Speaker, where specifically does the Constitution grant Congress the authority to enact an individual health insurance mandate?
Pelosi: Are you serious? Are you serious?"
CNSNews.com: Yes, yes I am."
Really Nancy? Really Jerrold?
Ok, a re-post of a previous observation is in order just to assure everyone that this is nothing other that sour grapes from a defeated communist and the communists-that-call-themselves-democrat are incapable of any other reaction when getting their "collective" butts kicked up around their ears.
One more time...
They are beyond help, they do not have the capacity to be educated out of communism disguised as "liberalism and progressiveness." They can not or refuse to see the destructive nature of the communism disguised as "liberalism and progressiveness" they promote.
What the supporters of communist "liberalism and progressiveness" will destroy is the very nation that gave them their freedom. They will complain, demonize, belittle and protest when opposed but only preserving this Republic in its original context will continue to give them their freedom to complain and protest against it.
They will not stop destroying this nation of their own accord.
The only way to preserve freedom for American Citizens in this Republic is suppression of the communist supporters.
James T. Kirk, Captain of the USS Enterprise...
Democrats are the enemies of freedom.
The consittution is an inspried text that defines the rights of a free people and protects them from an all powerful despotic central government.
It has guided this country for 222 years, and many hundreds of thousands of men have died to defend the country it defines.
The Democrats are the now the Communist Party of America, and value arty power over the Constitution, personal liberties, and America.
They must be exposed and voted out at every opportunity and fought with an intensity only formerly reserved for foreign enemies.
Because they are an enemy foreign to the very notion of America.
Jerry the Hutt actually has a fair point lost amongst his vitriol, the constitution is not the bible and the founders weren’t gods. What they were are smart guys and they wisely made the constitution amendable.
But he’s wrong to criticize the reading of it. They need to hear it. He needs to hear it. Cause Congress has been ignoring it. Nader’s party treats it like toilet paper.
Hmm, I'm probably lucky that wackjob in Arizona is in custody.
Todays politicians, by comparison are stark raving madmen and slothful imbeciles, who cant understand a document that was written 200 years ago.
nadler is a fool.
Palin. I've been posting for years she's been “Quayled”, which translates into “unelectable”. That has nothing to do with her as a person; it's an indictment of the MSM. If you're looking for a woman to be prez, Michele Bachmann would be a great choice; she's very articulate and doesn't have sky-high negatives. IMO, Mike Pence would be as close to a perfect candidate the GOP could field for 2012. Barring Pence, I like Michele.
I wish I had hot teachers when I was in HS. And for sure, that kid's “street cred” must be through the roof.
Nancy Pelosi needs to post-live-birth-abort herself.
RE: Trying to pin the Giffords shooting on the Tea Party/Palin: Not one shred of evidence connecting anything, outside of that fact the shooter is a leftist freak. Sound familiar? (see Princip and Oswald for 2 examples). Regarding the allegation that a “target” was placed on Giffords by Sarah Palin: What about the movie that showed the assassination of GWB? Oh right, that's just liberal “art” protected by the 1st Amendment.
I look at the Giffords whole incident as another indication that this country has become way, way too fractionated to remain united and should split into two separate countries, one a "Blue" liberal sh*t hole, one a "Red" Constitutionally based one. Let's see which one thrives and survives.
Over and out...
Hear ye, hear ye! You are absolutely right.
