You cannot go a day on LiveLeak without someone posting a video, and many others posting comments, claiming President Obama has stripped them of their "constitutional rights". Indeed I engaged in a brief debate with a mental giant recently who opined that, due to the assault on our constitution there was now no difference between the United States and Egypt, Libya, Iraq and NAZI Germany.
It has been my experience that whenever someone claims the current administration and other dark forces have 'ignored the constitution' or 'taken away constitutional rights', they themselves are constitutionally ignorant, and even usually support laws and governmant actions which violate the constitution with impunity.
Such people have no working knowledge of the constitution and are incapable of reciting accurately any one of the bill of rights or one of the many famous 'clauses' contained in the constitution. They are also likely to claim that the constitution mentions the word god, or Christianity, or has language which proves that Obama is not a natural born citizen because his father was a citizen of Kenya.
The most popular section to 'quote' may be the First Amendment, though 'the Establishment Clause' and 'Separation of Church and State" as well as the actual language of the of this amendment are all outside of their understanding. This despite the fact that they will tell you what all of these are/say with 100% certainty. They are never right.
The Constitutional Accountability Center interviewed several tea partiers in front of the Supreme Court during oral arguments in the Obamacare cases in March 2012. Many of them feel strongly that the law is unconstitutional, and many of them proved that they have absolutely no idea about what the Constitution actually says. Enjoy.
