Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg to Egypt: When Drafting a Constitution Don’t Look at Our ‘Rather Old’ One

She then goes on to suggest Egyptians should closely examine the Constitutions of Canada and South Africa, along with the European Convention on Human Rights treaty, when formulating their own Constitution; heck, anything after WWII, just NOT the U.S. Constitution! 

Gee, I don’t recall seeing any of those documents upholding the rights of citizens to bear arms…

Of course, it’s not all that surprising since the decrepit little termagant, Ginsburg, has always hated the U.S. Constitution.  That’s why she continually cites international laws for her legal opinions whenever she doesn’t like what the U.S. Constitution has to say.

Anyway, listening to Ginsburg speak is like watching paint dry, so I have included transcript excerpts for those of you who wish to avoid the video:

Following are excerpts from an interview with US Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, which aired on Al-Hayat TV on January 30, 2012.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg: It is a very inspiring time – that you have overthrown a dictator, and that you are striving to achieve a genuine democracy. So I think people in the United States are hoping that this transition will work, and that there will genuinely be a government of, by, and for the people.

[…]

I met with the head of the elections commission. I think that the first step has gone well, and that elections have been held for the lower house that everyone has considered to be free and fair. So that’s one milestone, and the next will be the drafting of a constitution.

I can’t speak about what the Egyptian experience should be, because I’m operating under a rather old constitution. The United States, in comparison to Egypt, is a very new nation, and yet we have the oldest written constitution still in force in the world.

That’s because it’s such a great Constitution, Ms. Ginsburg!

[…]

Let me say first that a constitution, as important as it is, will mean nothing unless the people are yearning for liberty and freedom. If the people don’t care, then the best constitution in the world won’t make any difference. So the spirit of liberty has to be in the population, and then the constitution – first, it should safeguard basic fundamental human rights, like our First Amendment, the right to speak freely, and to publish freely, without the government as a censor.

What?  No Freedom of Religion?  I’m pretty sure the Greek Orthodox Church would appreciate a little freedom of religion, Ms. Ginsburg.

[…]

You should certainly be aided by all the constitution-writing that has gone one since the end of World War II. I would not look to the US constitution, if I were drafting a constitution in the year 2012. I might look at the constitution of South Africa. That was a deliberate attempt to have a fundamental instrument of government that embraced basic human rights, had an independent judiciary… It really is, I think, a great piece of work that was done. Much more recent than the US constitution – Canada has a Charter of Rights and Freedoms. It dates from 1982. You would almost certainly look at the European Convention on Human Rights. Yes, why not take advantage of what there is elsewhere in the world?

[…]

And, we ALL thank God you weren’t the one drafting Our Constitution, Ms. Ginsburg.

    Yep. ‘Ol Ruthie is a commie.

    Only a lefty commie would lack the mental capacity to actually find no conflict in the statement that the right to have guns does not mean that you have the right to have guns. But then, lefties are accustomed to the mental exercise of ignoring reality.

    is she a communist at heart??? she is definitlyu for total goverment control. does she believe in freedom of speech, religion, the right to defend your home, the right to bear arms for the protrection of our freedoms our forefathers fought for. or is she just for the richiest of al our country and her oewn self interests??? hmmm something to ponder on…

  3. Blanco Says:

    It odesn’t matter what this dried up old lefty bat says, she is a jew first to these people so therefore the enemy. They would never take advice from her for being a member of the lower class i.e. woman. Plus she’s a citizen of the USA. 3 strikes and you’re out Ginsberg!

  4. tgusa Says:

    She is a village idiot. We haven’t even seen the hundredth anniversary of the 19th amendment and she’s already tired of voting. This type of thinking has become prevalent among women in positions of power albeit private or public. Most of us will not allow our civilization to go down as a result of women such as this. They will be removed and stripped of power in the interest of our national security. The fact that she is giving advise to muslims when muslims just want her to be a goods girl and shut up and be quiet.

    What would make us safer, if that’s what we want? Getting rid of the 19th amendment or the second amendment? I vote for the 19th, I really don’t need it.

    Lets be like South Africa! Oh Brother, Sister.

    The powerful American woman has been a prime instigator of modern leftist policy. America, more than any other place in the world has allowed these women to avoid natural selection. They think that just because American men have for fought and won their freedom that they are now above it all. LOL. Meanwhile, they have set in place laws and rules that violate the laws of nature and natural selection. As I have said, we don’t have to destroy leftism as it will destroy itself though its own policies soon enough.

    BTW, have you noticed that all of the rational thinking American women are marginalized? They don’t hold any official office or executive position and they are attacked when they speak out. Could be discrimination, profiling, something.

  6. tgusa Says:

    I am getting really sick of all of this.

    Go around and ask American females who Betsy Ross was? Who was Abigail Adams, Dolly Madison or why is Julia Ward Howe notable in American history? You may find that the vast majority of them have no frigging idea. Interestingly the greatest American women were not allowed to vote. Women were given the right to vote in 1920 I’d say its time to as is said, step up to the bar and make some history.

    American women are likely to knoe Hillary who today is perhaps the most noted of presidents wive’s. noteds for what, keeping her mouth shut (no pun intended) because if you are a female leftist that is what is required. At least Jackie O dressed well and kept her hair neat. Women are a reflection of the men of their cultures but that is not to say that women do not contribute to that male reflection, they do. It doesn’t take a village, just a man and a woman.

    My guess is Ruth secretly loathes Bill and perhaps Hillary by extension. Bitterness is a primary driver of leftist women. But when it comes to crunch time ladies like Ruth may end up finding that it is the eyewitness news anchor that is backing them not traditional American men or women.
    In the future its not just who you are but who your friends are that matters.

    To paraphrase Ike,
    You have embarked upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many many decades. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you.

    Hope does not ride alone.

    She is right. Our Constitution is not suited to the modern problems they face. A parliamentary system would be better.

  8. Big Frank Says:

    The ‘Honorable’ Comrade Ginsberg needs to retire.

    Frau Ginsburg and her ilk are one main reason why if I saw her or them being pushed into a car by osama bin laden himself I wouldn’t lift a finger to help. And that goes for most of the rest of those involved in the national disgrace that is the US court industry. Interestingly the jihadists may get one of us in a random attack but they are actively pursuing whom they really want, the Ginsburg clan. They, as so called representatives of our legal system (the great satan) will be the first ones to be put against the wall and 20 years ago I may have given a damn but not anymore. I speaking with other Americans many of them feel the same way I do if I come into contact with these people, dirty, really dirty. It will be hard to fight jihadists when they have no friends here. I have begun to develop a harshness that was not part of my character in the past. Yes, I’d p*** on their heads.
