Is there nothing Democrats won’t do to rewrite our Constitution? The radical left hates that we have a document protecting American citizens from an all-powerful government. Democrats have tried to undermine freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and the right to bear arms for decades.
And if they have it their way, they will make sure the Constitution’s rights are distributed based on gender.
For years, the left has tried to pass a bogus amendment that would enshrine one of their favorite holy grails. It would make “affirmative action” and other “woke” policies ironclad. And it would give the government the power to determine your rights, based on your gender. Sen. Schumer is trying to make it a reality.
From Fox News:
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., is teeing up a vote this week on a resolution aimed at adding the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) to the Constitution, more than a century after it was first introduced in Congress…
[The ERA would] enshrine equal rights on the basis of sex in the nation’s founding document.
Chuck Schumer is trying to add the “Equal Rights Amendment” to the Constitution. The amendment failed to pass decades ago, hitting a seven-year deadline. Now, Schumer is trying to manipulate the law so that the amendment could be added after the fact.
This amendment would redefine our rights, protected by the Constitution, on the basis of sex. Leftists claim the nation’s founding document needs to be “fix” because it doesn’t expressly state both men and women are guaranteed constitutional rights.
But the language of the Bill of Rights, as well as amendments like the 14th and others, already protect rights for all Americans. That includes men and women, of all races and backgrounds. So, why are Democrats so hell-bent on adding this amendment?
The amendment states “Men an women shall have equal rights throughout the United States and every place subject to that jurisdiction.” Doesn’t sound bad, does it? But then comes this part: “Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.”
Oh! That’s why they want to pass this amendment so badly. Not because the Constitution, in its current form, doesn’t protect women’s rights. But because this amendment specifically grants Congress “power” to enforce this amendment any way they please!
Do you know what kind of insane laws Democrats will try to pass to “protect” women’s rights, given this amendment? They might use this to enforce transgenders to play in women’s sports. They can use this amendment to expand the size of the federal government, to “protect” women’s rights.
And so much more. This amendment isn’t about protecting anyone, just granting Congress more power. Why should we support that?
- Chuck Schumer is pushing to get the “Equal Rights Amendment” added to the Constitution.
- The amendment grants Congress greater power to “enforce” this amendment.
- This comes as Democrats seek to erode women’s rights through transgenderism.
