“…The choice is not between order and liberty. It is between liberty with order and anarchy without either. There is danger that, if the Court does not temper its doctrinaire logic with a little practical wisdom, it will convert the constitutional Bill of Rights into a suicide pact.” – MR. JUSTICE JACKSON, dissenting. Terminiello v. Chicago, 337 U.S. 1 (1949)

This morning:

Ann Wagner @AnnLWagner
I’ll always fight to protect your constitutional rights.

Some of the responses:

***if you are a white, straight, cis, Christian
****and if my pharmaceutical and Edward Jones lobbyist let me

I wish we had the right to be safe from airborne viruses in the workplace. Maybe you could come up with legislation to require vaccination or regular tests.

You Ann know exactly how elections are run. As Director in STL county the checks, double checks, the audit that go into certification. Your no vote yesterday was direct opposite of protection of my constitutional rights.

Which rights in particular. Or are you gonna fight for all of them even if you don’t agree with them

Lmao, since when?

*Offer limited to the 2nd Amendment only. Terms and conditions apply. Gold and Platinum Constitutional Support levels can be unlocked with further donations.”

ALL of them?

“Protect your Constitutional Rights*”

* exceptions include, voting rights, reprorductive freedom, the separation of church and state, the 13/14/15th Anendments, the Supremacy Clause, 4th Amendment rights

you’re really getting in the way of my pursuit of happiness, ann

Ms Wagner, please stop. We know better.
Due process and reproductive health.
You just voted against the Freedom to Vote act yesterday.
Labor laws, relief aid, combating racial discrimination- either silent when your constituents rights are on the line or openly vote against them.

What about Right to Assemble?
Right to Vote?
Right to Free and Fair Elections?
Right to our own reproductive health decisions?

Not voting rights! What are you scared of Ann???

Only the ones you agree with.

This is simply not true

It helps when you buy a SCOTUS to define constitutional

Then why don’t you support the right to vote without obstruction?

I’m truly embarrassed you are my ‘representative’.

Why would you use “your” in here? Do you think constitutional rights are subject to conditions? Only apply to some? Define “your”

Constitutional rights according to *your* interpretation, Ann.

Is that a joke

Ann…. God doesn’t like liars.

How about you just focus on your oath? How about next time you hold seditionists like Steve Bannon in contempt, rather than in high regard?

Well.. if the past is any indication of the future, I would say that’s a big fat whopper of a lie Ann.

Nobody believes your lies

You lie with such sleaze. It’s almost like second nature to you like breathing. [….]

Meaningless platitudes are worthless, Ann.

Why make voting harder? Why make the pandemic worse? Why only care about spending during D presidencies?

Because you only care about what you can do for money.

You’re Prolife for a fetal heartbeat but not the one beating in my chest. You opposed healthcare for us with pre-existing conditions (cue the squeal). You’re anti mitigation to protect vulnerable from Covid. You oppose Medicaid expansion causing hospitals to close. Try again.

Why do Republicans want to destroy American democracy?

Ann, in order to fight to protect our constitutional rights, you first have to commit to protecting the constitution. In the 2020 election, you failed to do this.

Your tweet is thus disingenuous at best and an outright lie at worst.

And on and on.
