Progressives Propound States’ Rights?

President Donald J. Trump is so opposed by the progressives in the United States that, when he takes one side in a position, his enemies will often flock to the other. Recently, Trump stated that the Federal government would classify churches as “essential” entities, and move to remove the restrictions placed upon them by various governors. Leftists have reacted with States’ Rights rhetoric.

Editor of Mother Jones, a hard-left magazine (warning – foul language follows):

White House Correspondent Carlos Curbelo:

White House Correspondent Yamiche Alcindor:

There are many more talking heads, from journalists to academics, making their support of the Tenth Amendment known. Now, the War of 1861 and subsequent Federal Supreme Court decisions have utterly debased the Tenth Amendment, the bulwark of States’ Rights, so that it is now a hollow shell of its former self. Yet we see these activists rally to it in making their points. Their patronizing of this position is obviously self-serving and will die as the winds shift, but it is amazing that this discussion can even be had in the public forum today.

As this common man surmises, the hypocrisy being displayed by the left is laughable:


Guess invoking States’ Rights is no longer “an insidious dog whistle for something far worse,” is it now? Truly, we live in interesting times.
