Kirsters Baish| The Trump White House is currently deciding on a new United States Supreme Court Justice to replace retiring Justice Kennedy. The leftists of America are likely hoping that the new justice will be more like Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a diehard liberal. Clearly, the new justice will be nothing like her, and that’s something we can truly be thankful for… especially after watching a video that is circulating the internet in which Ginsburg trashes our country’s Constitution.
The inappropriate comments came when she made a statement in a 2012 video during a trip to Cairo University in Egypt. Major changes had been underway after the Arab Spring revolution and strongman Hosni Mubarak’s defeat. Justice Ginsburg praised our country’s Constitution, however, she went on to claim that Egyptians could look somewhere else, as reported by Fox news.
The Middle East Media Research Institute reported that Ginsburg stated, “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,” she stated.
“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. 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,” she went on.
“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.”
She should have just stopped talking… but of course she didn’t. Take a look for yourself how bad it got.

“You should certainly be aided by all the constitution-writing that has gone on since the end of World War II,” Ginsburg said. “I would not look to the U.S. 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,” Ginsburg went on.
She said of the document, “It really is, I think, a great piece of work that was done. Much more recent than the U.S. 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?”
According to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the United States Constitution is outdated. It really doesn’t come as much of a surprise when you take into account her stance on gun rights and stretching the Fourteenth Amendment.
The fact that Ruth Bader Ginsburg is supposed to be one of nine people in our country who protect the Constitution with everything they have, makes it that much worse that she told Egypt to look somewhere else to find answers.
