Dec. 15 was Bill of Rights Day, the 220th anniversary of the passage of the first ten amendments to the Constitution. President Obama issued a disingenuous and hypocritical proclamation commemorating the event.
On December 15, 1791, the United States adopted the Bill of Rights, enshrining in our Constitution the protection of our inalienable freedoms, from the right to speak our minds and worship as we please to the guarantee of equal justice under the law. For 220 years, these fundamental liberties have shaped our national character and stirred the souls of all who dream of a freer, more just world. As we mark this milestone, we renew our commitment to preserving our universal rights and perfecting our Union.
Last week was also Human Rights Week, for which the president issued an equally farcical proclamation that stood in stark contrast to his actual record. In short, Mr. President, you are a fraud and a liar.
