Justice Ginsburg Tells Egyptians not to Look to the U.S. Constitution

Posted by Steve Markowitz on February 16, 2012

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg earlier this month visited Egypt on a trip paid for by the US State Department.  While it is curious that Ginsburg went on State Department’s dime, some of her statements bordered on provocative, if not downright damaging to America’s interests.

During the Egyptian trip, Justice Ginsburg was interviewed by Egyptian Alhayat TV with the video being was posted by the US Embassy in Cairo.  During the interview, portion included below, Ginsburg was asked approximately 2 minutes 13 seconds into the clip if she thought the Egyptians should use constitutions from other countries as models for their own that is to be drafted.  Her answer was shocking, suggesting that Egypt should be “aided by all Constitution-writing that has gone on since the end of World War II.”  Then in a seeming attempt to ensure that Egyptians understood that the American Constitution was written prior to World War II, she stated:

I would not look to the U.S. Constitution, if I were drafting a Constitution in the year 2012.  I might look at the Constitution of South Africa.  That was a deliberate attempt to have a fundamental instrument of government that embraced basic human rights, had an independent judiciary. … It really is, I think, a great piece of work that was done.  Much more recent than the U.S. Constitution.”  She then went on to also praise some of the legal work in Canada and Europe.

By pointing to only constitutions developed after World War II, Ms. Ginsburg demonstrated technical Progressive narcissism. To them, legal philosophies that predate their new world order are frowned upon.  The fact that Ginsburg was willing to openly state such negative views of the U.S. Constitution, especially during a visit to an Arab country in turmoil, indicates the extent of her disdained for a document she has sworn to uphold.

Ginsburg’s Cairo statements were honest, although a frightening look into the minds of Progressive elitists.  To these Progressives, the Constitution is an annoyance that gets in the way of promoting their Progressive agendas.  This view makes it impossible for judges like Ginsburg to uphold the Constitution in a way that the framers envisioned.  In fact, these activists Judges have in essence created a fourth branch of the US government that pursue advocacy rather than upholding the Constitution.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg embarrassed herself and the United States in the Cairo interview.  Her radical statements demand that she resign her position on the Supreme Court.
