I’m going to go out on a ledge to guess that Charlie Kirk is mad at the 14th Amendment because it means that Trump is not allowed to run for office. So, he’s mad at the Constitution that Trump wanted to terminate. I don’t think these people are Constitutionalists, you guys.
“The 14th Amendment was necessary for some things, 100%, but it’s way too broadly written,” the community college dropout said. “It’s poorly written in some ways.
“The moral premise of the 14th Amendment, excellent,” Kirk continued. “Of course, obviously, no one’s gonna debate that. No one will.”
“Abolishing slavery and respecting the dignity of all people, but they float the 14th Amendment for everything,” he said. “For removal of debts. Remember when they said, oh, the debt ceiling can be raised because of the 14th Amendment?”
“Preventing Donald Trump from becoming president, birthright citizenship,” he continued. “The 14th Amendment is the catch-all. The 14th Amendment has become kind of the modern Marxist revolutionary gateway to whatever they wanna do.”
“It doesn’t always hold up in court, but it’s way too broad,” Kirk said. “It’s just too broad. Again, morally necessary with too many opaque provisions and vocabulary that is now harming us in 2023,” he said. “They believe the 14th Amendment nullifies the rest of the Constitution as long as the government can be used to attack white people or now to attack insurrectionists.”
“That’s why language matters,” he added.
That doesn’t make any sense, at least to me. How are white people being attacked? As a white person, I need to know if someone is sneaking up on me right now. No, that’s probably my cat. And did he admit that an insurrection took place on Jan. 6th? Well, we knew that already.
J. Michael Luttig and Laurence H. Tribe report at The Atlantic:
This protection, embodied in the amendment’s often-overlooked Section 3, automatically excludes from future office and position of power in the United States government—and also from any equivalent office and position of power in the sovereign states and their subdivisions—any person who has taken an oath to support and defend our Constitution and thereafter rebels against that sacred charter, either through overt insurrection or by giving aid or comfort to the Constitution’s enemies.
That’s not too broad. If you vow to defend this country, then you attack it; you should never be given the keys to the White House again.
