RINO Joe Scarborough – Ted Cruz Is “Willfully Ignorant” About The Constitution

RINO Joe Scarborough attacks Ted Cruz

MSNBC Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough proves once again why he can't even be referred to as the token Republican on his show any longer. While the once Republican Congressman from Florida likes to spout that he is a proud member of the NRA, he holds nothing in common with hardcore, Constitution loving Conservatives or other members of the NRA. Not only does Joe disagree with most Conservatives who support the 2nd Amendment, he is now openly attacking them as he did with Senator Ted Cruz on his show this past Friday.

What the main gist of the problem is with RINOs like Scarborough and other not so nice lefties, is that they have a fundamentally different interpretation of the Constitution and especially the 2nd Amendment than Conservatives do. Liberals look at the Constitution as an ever changing "living document" that gets reinterpreted in every generation depending on what society decides is normal. Conservatives however, view the Constitution as a document that has an unchangeable meaning and it should be interpreted as the founders who wrote it intended. Is it so odd that we should interpret the Constitution as the people who wrote it intended it to be interpreted?

Joe Scarborough obviously disagrees with the way Ted Cruz and the founding fathers would interpret the 2nd Amendment. Joe doesn't think Americans should be able to own what he interprets as an assault weapon, Cruz and most Conservatives would agree that citizens should be able to own something that is closely matched to what the government owns to be able to keep them in check. So when Dianne Feinstein tries to ban so-called assault weapons, Cruz believes that this is a violation of the Second Amendment and obviously Joe Scarborough being the RINO that he is, doesn't think there is a violation there because Dianne Feinstein says there isn't.

Read Joe Scarborough's comments below and then watch the video from The Daily Caller and just be glad that this fool is no longer in Congress masquerading as a Republican:

“Did Ted Cruz not go to law school?” Scarborough said. “Did they teach Ted Cruz to read what the Supreme Court said especially in the landmark — the landmark — decision regarding Second Amendment rights? Over 200 years was written in 2008. And I’m just wondering, why would he use his seat on the Judiciary Committee, if he went to Harvard, to put forward a willfully ignorant statement about this bill violating the Second Amendment, because it does not. And Ted Cruz knows it does not. So who is he playing for? Is he playing for people who can’t read or are illiterate?”

“I don’t understand,” Scarborough continued. “You know, there are a lot of people out there who support Ted Cruz’s position that will say, ‘this is not a violation of the Second Amendment,’ but however have real concerns because you take this first step, the next thing you know they’re going to try to overturn Heller, they’re going to take my shotguns.

“They’re going to try to get my hunting rifle. I don’t mean to go on and on here, but I am so shocked that he would continue to use his seat in the Judiciary Committee to just mislead millions of Americans and put forward a willfully ignorant position on what the Constitution says and what it does not say.”

Scarborough continued to use the 2008 D.C. v. Heller case as proof Cruz was out of bounds in his criticism of Feinstein’s gun control proposals and advised him to “read the damn case law.”

“[I]f Ted Cruz wants to say the Second Amendment — I believe the Second Amendment should protect people’s rights to have assault weapons or semi-automatic weapons, or whatever linguistic game, whatever semantic game they want to play at the NRA, whatever Bushmasters are — if he wants to say I personally believe the Second Amendment should protect these rights and is absolute and contains all these things that Justice [Antonin] Scalia and Justice [Clarence] Thomas and Justice [Anthony] Kennedy and Justice [Samuel] Alito, and you know conservative justices — if he wants to say it, that’s fine,” Scarborough said. “I’ve got no problem with that and I know people who believe that should be contained within Heller and the Second Amendment. It’s just not.”

“So when he suggests to [Sen.] Dianne Feinstein, or lectures her that she is violating the Second Amendment, that this impinges upon Second Amendment rights, that’s just false,” he continued. “And that’s what’s so disturbing to me. This is an opinion. This is fact. Read the damn case law. And he keeps doing it and it’s driving me crazy because he supposedly is a learned man.”

Now watch Joe make a fool of himself in the video below:
