To eliminate any right, all anyone has to do is declare it not to be a right, then repeal its legal protection. So for her to say she "honors" all rights, she really means she honors only those rights which she considers to be rights. The same could reasonably be said of anyone. It just lays bare how hollow the proclamation of "honoring rights" is without specifying what things are rights.
The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants, and it provides the further advantage of giving the servants of tyranny a good conscience.
