Ok, I looked it up, footnote

Ok, I looked it up, footnote 37 of the 2002 Edition for the 14th Amendment section(not on page 1006-1007) says no such thing, it is simply a summary of the Slaughterhouse opinion. p. 1679

When we talk about Sections 1 and 2 of the 14th Amendment we are talking about RESTRICTIONS ON THE STATES, not the Federal Government. The Federal Government is still bound by the Bill of Rights.

The Slaughterhouse opinion narrowly defined the scope of the 14th Amendment Priviliges and Immunities clause to narrow P+I to only US Citizens. The Court did not bother to define what the P+I are, but simply distinguished US citizens from State citizens.In the Slaughter-House Cases the court recognized two types of citizenship. The rights citizens have by being citizens of the United States are covered under the Privileges or Immunities Clause of the 14th Amendment, while the rights citizens have by being citizens of a state fall under the Privileges and Immunities Clause of Article Four.

Rather than overturn Slaughterhouse, the modern Court has INCORPORATED the Bill of Rights as a restriction on the action of the states through the 14th Amendment's DUE PROCESS CLAUSE.
