Any time we post something positive happening in Michigan, we get a small, but very vocal group of commenters who say that, basically, constitution be damned – because … there are muslims in Michigan.
I shouldn’t have been surprised to see Don, who lives in New Hampshire, use the same approach in response to a bill to protect the 4th Amendment passing out of committee in Michigan.
This view is almost the same as what Michael Bloomberg espouses, and it’s dangerous.
Bloomberg believes that people with guns are dangerous, so no one should be able to exercise their rights. Don, for now, just wants to abandon the constitution in one state. But what if he decides that another race or religion is dangerous, will the constitution be abandoned elsewhere, or everywhere?
If you ignore one part of the constitution, you’ve empowered other people to ignore the rest of it.
