An Anti-Constitutionalist is an individual who rejects the views of the political theories of John Locke and the founding fathers of the American republic, that government can and should be limited in its powers. Anti-Constitutionalists believe in the supremacy of federal power over individual rights and self-governance.

Anti-constitutionalists are persons who believe that basic standards and ideals are to be consistent with progressive values and the rule of law.

7 characteristics

The 7 characteristics of many anti-constitutionalists:

1. Life: For all human beings, and a right to choice.

2. Liberty: Freedom of conscience and actions to suppress fascist ideals;[1]

3. Family: Equal rights to marry anyone among at least 56 known genders;[2]

4. Diversity: Out of one, many.[3]

5. Constitution: Outdated and written by white male slaveholders;

6. Collective Responsibility: A duty not a choice;[4]

7. Sovereignty: The universal power, authority, and kinship of the human species.

1st Amendment

Many anti-constitutionalists agitate or advocate for restrictions on, or the overturning of the First Amendment - abridgment of freedom of speech, freedom of the press, media, social media, and restrictions on the free exercise of religion.

Rep. Ted Lieu famously said,
"I would love to be able to regulate the content of speech. The First Amendment prevents me from doing so."

2nd Amendment

Eliminating gun rights has long been a priority of anti-constitutionalists.

4th Amendment

The Fourth Amendment,
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized"
has been virtually dispossed of in the post-Snowden revelation liberal police state.

5th Amendment

The Fifth Amendment presumption of innocence and due process clauses have come under increasing attack by politically correct logic and advocates of identity politics.

During the Kavanaugh smear hearings for example, Sen. Kamala Harris, who has a long history of abandoning due process,[5] made no pretense of respecting the constitutional guarantee of innocent til proven guilty.

Prominent figures


  1. From the U.S. Capitol Historical Society website: "This ancient emblem called a fasces served as the symbol of civil authority in the Roman Republic. Originally it was an axe bound among a collection of rods held together with a red strap. The fasces could be presented to restore order or to carry out punishment. Our founding fathers found deep inspiration for our own democratic experiment from the Romans and adopted the symbol to represent Congress."

      Mark Bray, author of Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook, justifies violence by challenging "conventional interpretations of self-defense grounded in individualistic personal ethics by legitimating offensive tactics" when institutions of government fail to halt fascism.
