“Ah yes, I too have often wondered what the Constitution would look like if it were crafted to ram a hard-left agenda down our throats.”
A law professor argued in a Boston Globe op-ed that the First and Second Amendments should be rewritten to change how it defines the freedom of the press and the right to bear arms.
Mary Anne Franks, a professor at University of Miami School of Law and author of “The Cult of the Constitution: Our Deadly Devotion to Guns and Free Speech,” wrote an op-ed in the Boston Globe arguing the Constitution has “competing interpretations” that “inspire religious-like fervor” leading to “irrational results.”
Franks’ book argued that the Constitution is “in the service of white male supremacy,” the Second Amendment is a “conservative fetish” and the First Amendment is a “liberal fetish” that “is less obvious but no less influential,” according to a description of the work written by Stanford University Press.
