If you needed any further proof that the left views the United States Constitution as a hindrance to their goals for power, you’re in luck.

Leftist Publication Calls for Burning Constitution

Moonbats don’t always dress in sheep’s clothing. Sometimes they come right out and tell you who they are and what they want:

Jacobin, a new socialist magazine, has published an essay advocating destroying the U.S. Constitution.

The magazine, which was launched in 2011 and is published four times a year, is the creation of Bhaskar Sunkara. Sunkara, 26, is the son of immigrants from Trinidad and Tobago. He lives in Brooklyn.

A new profile on Vox.com argues that “Jacobin has in the past five years become the leading intellectual voice of the American left, the most vibrant and relevant socialist publication in a very long time.”

Jacobin claims a circulation of 15,000 with a web audience of 750,000 a month. A 2013 profile of Sunkara in the New York Times revealed that when Seth Ackerman, a graduate student at Cornell, wrote a piece critical of the U.S. Constitution, Sunkara came up with the title: “Seth had a title with nine words and a semicolon. I crossed it out and wrote ‘Burn the Constitution.’”

Ackerman’s article argues that the Constitution, with its governmental checks and balances, prevents “the democratic will” and “popular sovereignty.”

Socialism can’t happen in America with our current constitutional protections and the left knows this.

The fact that they want to destroy our most sacred freedoms makes them enemies of America, doesn’t it?

    The asshole is too late. Barky burned the Constitution the day he was first installed.

  • taxpayer22

    Hitler was a left Socialist who burned books, too.

    • Mike

      Hitler actually invented his own form by mixing Soviet socialism and Italian fascism in a way never before seen. As a result, the Nazi form of fascism was born.

      Nothing good about either but it was a new path that led him to hold Europe by the neck.

    craplam & liberalsim have to go

  • Andy from Beaverton

    The last line in the piece was, “You would almost think Madison had been listening to Glenn Beck.”
    Bahahaha, radical Vox leftist, Cruz and Beck have more in common they they thought.

    —like OBOZO has been doing for the past 7+ years?

  • larry sacamento

    After the last 7+years, I didn’t know we had a Constitution left. Hussein Obama & Company have done a great job burning it along with our Country.

    • JacksonPearson

      Yep, Emperor Obama hates everything about our Constitution. Because the founders limited his enumerated powers…:

    • Buster000

      You mean congress don’t you? Obama never would have been able to usurp the constitution if congress hadn’t allowed him to do so. They are equally as culpable

    I say split the country….leftists, communists and anarchists on the left and normal people on the right. Let the left take the refugees too. They wouldn’t want to be racist.

    • Buster000

      Don’t bring Anarchists into this. We’re the ones who feel as the founding fathers did. Let no one rule over you. Be your own master [the sovereign man].

      • Areyoukiddingme

        You’re also violent. (Well I don’t know you, maybe you aren’t).

        • Buster000

          Go to the Greek root of the word to find its true meaning. Nineteenth century dictionaries corrupt its true meaning. Simply it means the sovereign man, the Anarchist, is no slave to another.

          • Areyoukiddingme

            well then protesters are giving you guys a bad name
