Allahpundit and the 1st & 2nd Amendments

It’s amusing to me how Allahpundit can so clearly see the folly of the 4 Supreme Court Justices who dissented in the recent DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA ET AL. v. HELLER 2nd Amendment case, but he doesn’t apply the same logic to the 1st Amendment.

Hence AP is as wrong in his view of the 1st Amendment as Breyer, Ginsburg, Souter, and Stevens are in their view of the 2nd Amendment.

2nd Amendment:

The quote of the day comes not from Scalia but from Stevens in dissent:

The Court would have us believe that over 200 years ago, the Framers made a choice to limit the tools available to elected officials wishing to regulate civilian uses of weapons

Yeah, that’s … the whole scheme of the Constitution, isn’t it?

Allahpundit

Same logic applied to 1st Amendment:

The Court Red Pill would have us believe that over 200 years ago, the Framers made a choice to limit the tools available to elected officials wishing to regulate civilian uses of weapons religious expression (speech, press, assembly, petition for redress of grievances)

Yeah, that’s … the whole scheme of the Constitution, isn’t it?

Yet, look at Allahpundit’s reaction to the following:

Govenor Bobby Jindal signed a law that will allow local school boards to approve supplemental materials for public school science classes as they discuss evolution, cloning and global warming…and issued a brief statement that read in part: “I will continue to consistently support the ability of school boards and BESE to make the best decisions to ensure a quality education for our children.”

What was Allahpundit’s reaction? Did he cheer a victory for freedom of speech and press? Did he celebrate diversity of thought? Did he get excited that fascist brainwashing of school children to believe in fictitious “scientific consensus” on topics like both evolution and global warming will now be challenged by valid scientific arguments contrary to those flawed theories? No. Here was Allahpundit’s response:

Depressing yet predictable. On to litigation!

Allahpundit is as wrong about the 1st Amendment as Breyer, Ginsburg, Souter, and Stevens are about the 2nd Amendment. All five have personal prejudices that prevent them from seeing the clear intent of our founders in the Bill of Rights.
