Why does the “left” hate bill of rights&freedoms?

Why does the Left want to take away everyone's freedoms and put more power into the government and have them control everything ?

what thought process makes you want to do this ?

why do the "left" supporters in America want to support this kind of stuff?

i can't figure this out 

anyone have a real good answer that might make sense to me ??

I guess because I hate documents. 

They steer towards authoritarianism and need someone to take care of them. 

It has been several times truly remarked that bills of rights are, in their origin, stipulations between kings and their subjects, abridgements of prerogative in favor of privilege, reservations of rights not surrendered to the prince. Such was MAGNA CHARTA, obtained by the barons, sword in hand, from King John. Such were the subsequent confirmations of that charter by succeeding princes. Such was the PETITION OF RIGHT assented to by Charles I., in the beginning of his reign. Such, also, was the Declaration of Right presented by the Lords and Commons to the Prince of Orange in 1688, and afterwards thrown into the form of an act of parliament called the Bill of Rights. It is evident, therefore, that, according to their primitive signification, they have no application to constitutions professedly founded upon the power of the people, and executed by their immediate representatives and servants. Here, in strictness, the people surrender nothing; and as they retain every thing they have no need of particular reservations. "WE, THE PEOPLE of the United States, to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ORDAIN and ESTABLISH this Constitution for the United States of America.'' Here is a better recognition of popular rights, than volumes of those aphorisms which make the principal figure in several of our State bills of rights, and which would sound much better in a treatise of ethics than in a constitution of government.

But a minute detail of particular rights is certainly far less applicable to a Constitution like that under consideration, which is merely intended to regulate the general political interests of the nation, than to a constitution which has the regulation of every species of personal and private concerns. If, therefore, the loud clamors against the plan of the convention, on this score, are well founded, no epithets of reprobation will be too strong for the constitution of this State. But the truth is, that both of them contain all which, in relation to their objects, is reasonably to be desired.

I go further, and affirm that bills of rights, in the sense and to the extent in which they are contended for, are not only unnecessary in the proposed Constitution, but would even be dangerous. They would contain various exceptions to powers not granted; and, on this very account, would afford a colorable pretext to claim more than were granted. For why declare that things shall not be done which there is no power to do? Why, for instance, should it be said that the liberty of the press shall not be restrained, when no power is given by which restrictions may be imposed? I will not contend that such a provision would confer a regulating power; but it is evident that it would furnish, to men disposed to usurp, a plausible pretense for claiming that power. They might urge with a semblance of reason, that the Constitution ought not to be charged with the absurdity of providing against the abuse of an authority which was not given, and that the provision against restraining the liberty of the press afforded a clear implication, that a power to prescribe proper regulations concerning it was intended to be vested in the national government. This may serve as a specimen of the numerous handles which would be given to the doctrine of constructive powers, by the indulgence of an injudicious zeal for bills of rights.

The right wing nut jobs are so clever they have fooled you into thinking the Left is the problem.

"The bigger problem they did not anticipate is the SCOTUS or any lower court being unwilling to say a right exists that is not enumerated in the BoR."

I think that is exactly what the Federalists were worried about. The Bill of Rights does more good than harm, but you pointed out the issue with it. That is what the 9th amendment is supposed to be for, but, yes, you can't rely on judges to say what those "other rights retained by the people" might be.

1st amendment.


And I would hope a cop would take more issue with someone screaming in their face in the middle of an airborne epidemic and threatening them with rifles than some rude socks.

Gotta give this troll account some credit. Her threads usually get a lot of posts and always try and divide everyone into 2 team bullshit. 8/10 overall as an account.

Leftists are mostly weaklings and losers. People that are incapable of earning respect, or having control themselves. 

 

They want the government to give them control over others. They can't use clout, or physical pressence to get people to respect them so they need to use things like cancel culture, crying about racism, and accusations of misconduct to perpetuate control. 

 

They epitomize being pathetic sad losers.

Yea, because when I think of places and times with large scale unemployment and lack of middle cl@ss jobs...I think of the REAL benefits to poor and middle people.  

 

That's when they really get to shine.

 

Also whites should indeed be more like the majority races of other countries that openly welcome insult to their country, demographic, and police force during sporting events.

 

 

...by the way did anybody tell you, you have the perspective of an angsty 15 year old boy mad that his parents dont let him smoke pot in the basement? 

Take your troll act and fuck off somewhere else
