Press Secretary's comments on "unconstitutional" decision hilarious
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre hasn’t really impressed me much during her limited tenure, but neither did her predecessor. I could circle back around to that, but why bother?
Now is Jean-Pierre’s time, her moment to shine.
And, as a result, you expect her to do her best to sparkle like the special snowflake that she is.
Unfortunately, it ain’t working out well for her. After all, let’s look at this comment from her:
First, many are focused on the idea that the Supreme Court kind of can’t make an unconstitutional decision. They are the arbiters of what’s constitutional and what isn’t.
However, people have a right to agree with those rulings, and I’d like to think that Jean-Pierre was doing just that, as is her right.
Yet that’s not what gets me.
What gets me is the unmitigated gall of the spokesperson for the Biden administration to lash out over something that was declared a right out of the blue all those years ago while still doing everything they can to curtail a specifically enumerated right.
That right is, of course, the Second Amendment.
The Biden administration, the administration Jean-Pierre works for, has been campaigning and pushing for an assault weapon ban, a national red flag law, gun licensing requirement, and a host of other infringements on our Second Amendment rights.
That’s a right that’s been on the books for over two centuries, yet the Biden administration pretends that has absolutely no meaning.
Then again, to them, it doesn’t.
You see, the problem I have with far too many politicians is that they view rights as only mattering when they agree with how they’re being exercised. The left wants to ban guns and hate speech while the right had a history of wanting to cram Christianity down people’s throats and wanted to ban flag burning.
Neither side has clean hands on this.
Yet the right has at least quieted those tendencies in many ways. The left has fully embraced them and will scream about them to the heavens.
Jean-Pierre can lament the repeal of Roe v. Wade—which doesn’t actually do anything except kick abortion back to the state level—while still working to push gun control down the nation’s throat, even after the Bruen decision basically killed gun control from a judicial standpoint.
They don’t care about rights. They care about scoring points that will play well with their base. Following Dobbs, that means lamenting the decision and trying to counter it in any way they can.
If only they cared about all of our rights.
If they did, our guns would be safe for generations to come.
