Publisher Provides Disclaimer With U.S. Constitution, Will Media Notice?


Copies of the U.S. Constitution put out by Wilder Publishing and being sold on come with an odd disclaimer on the first page of the pamphlet, in part declaring:

"This book is a product of its time and does not reflect the same values as it would if it were written today."

On Wednesday's America Live on FNC, host Megyn Kelly reported the controversy, will the rest of the media follow? [Click on image for larger view of disclaimer]

In an example of political correctness run amok, the disclaimer goes on to warn parents of the literary material to follow:

"Parents might wish to discuss with their children how views on race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity and interpersonal relations have changed since this book was written before allowing them to read this classic work."

The provocative pamphlet also includes the Declaration of Independence and the Articles of Confederation.

On FNC, correspondent Trace Gallagher concluded: "You know, it's one thing when you republish 'Lady Chatterley's Lover,' its another when you slap that thing on the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence 'Warning children'"
