Barney Frank Spewing Hate Speech at Judge Scalia?

March 24, 2009, Sallee5

Barney Frank attempts to throw a red herring in the ring in order to get the heat off his own tail for the HUGE part he played in NOT restricting Fannie May and Freddie Mac (even though Congress was warned 2-3 years ago by both George Bush and Senator John McCain (among other conservatives).

In an recent interview with Hoover Institution, elaborating on his earlier statement that “devotees of The Living Constitution do not seek to facilitate social change but to prevent it”[1], Justice Scalia said:

“To make things change you don’t need a constitution. The function of a Constitution is to rigidify, to ossify, NOT to facilitate change. You want change? All you need is a legislature and a ballot box. Things will change as fast as you like. My constitution, very flexible, when you want a right to abortion, persuade your fellow citizens that it’s a good idea. And pass a law. And then you find out, the results are worse than we ever thought, you can repeal the law. That’s flexibility. The reason people want the Supreme Court to declare that abortion is a constitutional right is precisely to rigidify that right, it means it sweeps across all fifty states and it is a law now and forever or until the Supreme Court changes its mind. That’s not flexibility.”
