Do you know what’s really kind of trash? “The View” is trash. So is any guest that thinks the Constitution is “trash.”

Elie Mystal, a lawyer and the justice correspondent for the far-left site, “The Nation” appeared on “The View” on Friday to promote his new book, “Allow Me to Retort: A Black Guy’s Guide to the Constitution.”

While he was there, he was asked by Ana Navarro how we should view the Constitution. She asked if it should be tossed out, should it be seen as a “living” document, or is it a “sacred” document.

Mystal replied, “It’s certainly not sacred. Let’s start there. The Constitution is kind of trash. Let’s just talk like adults for a second.”

Joy Behar was (unsurprisingly) confused, “What did you say? What?”

“It’s kind of trash. It was written by slavers and colonists and white people who were willing to make deals with slavers and colonists. They didn’t ask anybody that looked like me about the Constitution.”

He added, “This document was without the consent of black and brown people in this country and without the consent of women. I say if that was the starting point, the very least we can do is ignore what those slavers and colonists and misogynists thought and interpret the Constitution in a way that makes sense for our modern world.”

Here is Mystal talking about his book with “The View” Coven.

It’s no surprise that the left-wing co-hosts of “The View” would adore Mystal’s book.

Mystal is a lawyer, but he’s also clearly a far lefist. It’s no surprise that his book is a far-left screed against the Constitution.

Sunny Hostin, the dumbest of the harpies in the Coven, was effusive with praise, “I have to tell you, I loved this book so very much. The first chapter, ‘Canceling trash people is not a Constitutional crisis. Chapter 9, ‘The taking of black land’ was another favorite of mine, and ‘Reverse racism is not a thing.'”

Navarro then said that she is in Florida “at ground zero” where “all of this is happening.”

“I’m out of my mind about the bills banning conversations about race and ethnicity and LGBTQ,” said Navarro. It was at this point that she asked about how Mystal thinks we should view the Constitution.

This appearance isn’t the first time that Mystal has dunked on the Constitution — it’s kind of his schtick. He said that it would be great to “throw out the Constitution altogether” and start over with all Americans consulted on it.

So, what are the things that he would change?

During his segment on The View, he mentioned one. Mystal said that he would rather have the popular vote choose the President rather than the system that we currently have with the Electoral College. He’d rather see populous blue states run roughshod over less-populous red states using a system that doesn’t respect federalism and that the country is a union of individual states. But of course, Mystal would want that because it benefits his side (for now.)

But his ranting and raving about the Constitution is just bizarre.

Name a document (aside from the Bible) that has had a more positive impact on humanity than the Constitution.

Sure, it wasn’t perfect. It was a product of its time. That’s why there are Amendments.

But to call it “trash” because women or “black and brown people” weren’t “consulted” in its creation? Please. Amendments codified the rights of women and minorities and those Amendments were templates for the rest of the world.

Elie Mystal is no genius as you can tell by reading his columns over at “The Nation.” He thinks, however, that because he was born 200 years after the Constitution was written, he has a better understanding of how it should have been written than the Founders did when they were trying to properly balance liberty and rule of law. There were vigorous debates over the Constitution that we can still read in “The Federalist Papers” and “The Anti-Federalist Papers” and trust me Mystal’s writing doesn’t hold a candle to any of that. He’s a run-of-the-mill “chronological snob” — what we now call “progressives.”

He’s loving the attention, by the way.

Mystal is a raging bigot who wraps himself in a banner of “antiracism” to spew his anti-white views.

Mystal is pretty clear that he would like to use the law to punish people he thinks ought to be punished.

It looks like the promotional tour for his book might draw more attention to himself and people might make note that he made some comments about Kyle Rittenhouse after his acquittal that could be considered defamation…

Mystal called the teen who acted in self-defense a “little murderous white supremacist.”

No wonder he rails against the law as it is. He wants to be able to punish people he thinks are guilty regardless of the facts in the case.

With Rittenhouse’s recent announcement, however, Mystal might find himself as the defendant in a defamation case.

Rittenhouse Announces ‘The Media Accountability Project’ And Says That Lawsuits Are Coming…

The enemies of this country aren’t just ouside of it, there are people who would alter the Constitution itself for the benefit of their politics… and for vengence.

Elie Mystal is one lunkhead with bigoted, “progressive” views, but he’s not alone. Colleges are churning out more and more carbon copies of Mystal due to overt leftwing bias in education and rampant anti-Americanism.

That’s why we have to be vigilant. Raise your children right. Homeschool if you can and encourage them to go to trade school when they graduate. And don’t forget to continue to pray for this great nation.

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
