South Carolina’s battle flag may have came down from the capitol flagpole, but according to political scientist, and former professor at the University of Maryland, Henry Bain other symbols of the Confederacy’s ideology remain in place. “All copies of the Constitution promulgate detailed instructions for the recapture of slaves who have run away from their owners,” he says. “They also specify that slaves are to be counted as three-fifths of a person in the Census, giving a boost to the slave-owning states in the House of Representatives and the Electoral College.” Blaze from AFF reported, just like many others predicted, once censorship begins it is almost impossible to stop. Books, movies, TV shows and the internet are targets. The liberal professor isn’t calling for the creation of a new Constitution, according to the Daily Caller, but rather says the current one should simply be edited to remove parts he considers immoral and outdated. Basically an overhaul to fit liberal agendas. Bain says, the Constitution needs to be reorganized to suit the modern era, with “offensive text” excised and moved to a separate back section, “where it belongs.” Bain penned the article, that has run in several newspapers across the country, calling for a “revision” of the Constitution to remove portions he finds “immoral and outdated” saying:
South Carolina’s battle flag may soon come down from the capital flagpole, but other symbols of the Confederacy’s ideology remain in place.
For example, consider the US Constitution, which is another kind of symbol as well as law.
All copies of the Constitution promulgate detailed instructions for the recapture of slaves who have run away from their owners.
Bains claims we would all be better off if all such language were consigned to the back of the document, and Americans were presented with a modern constitutional text that truly portrays our system of government as it exists in the 21st century. Such a move would create “a Constitution that deserves to be read aloud each year when the House of Representatives begins its session,” unlike the undeserving current one, which Republicans have read aloud at the opening of Congress for the last three congresses.
