There’s A Reason Democrats Are Screaming About Conspiracies

Liberals always have a “racist” or “sexist” round chambered, ready to be fired whenever anyone says something in opposition to their will. Oppose a government takeover of the health care industry? Racist. Don’t believe Brett Kavanaugh ran a rape gang as a high school kid? Sexist. You name it, Democrats have a readymade retort set to go. Now, with their latest delusion – the idea that President Trump was using U.S. aid to Ukraine to force them to “manufacture dirt” against Joe Biden – they have added a new comeback: conspiracy theory.


It’s a term used to dismiss anything inconvenient to the left, and paint anyone questioning their orthodoxy as a loon.

Believe, after years of anonymous sources leaking cherry-picked snippets of information to select Democrats in the media, that there is a group of people in the government actively working to undermine the Trump administration? You might as well believe the moon landing was filmed on a Hollywood soundstage.

People lash out when they have nothing left with which to make their case. For Democrats, that’s become so soon in a debate that an attack is often the first thing out of their mouths. For the entirety of the Obama administration, opposition to his policies and executive orders were denounced as racist so routinely the charge lost all meaning. Not believing the president of the United States could rewrite immigration law with the stroke of his pen (a position Obama held for years, right up until the point he did it) was not greeted with a rationale for the move but cries of bigotry.

The reason you can’t have a political debate with a Democrat is they have no basis for their actions and policies beyond they want them. The same goes for this “impeachment inquiry.”

Last week, the Washington Post declared “Government-by-conspiracy-theory rides again.” In that piece, “national correspondent” Phil Bump decried any investigation into how the Russian hoax investigation came into being. He wrote that Attorney General “Barr’s efforts are in service to a sprawling conspiracy theory targeting Barr’s own organization along with other components of the U.S. intelligence community. In other words, Barr is asking foreign countries to dig around for evidence of malfeasance by U.S. agencies.”


After two years of “Trump is a Russian puppet” having been found untrue, Democrats have no business calling anything a conspiracy. They’d built up Robert Mueller to walk on water, that their dreams sank with his report pushed them over the edge.

The Russian hoax was the ultimate conspiracy, and it was perpetrated by Democrats. There wasn’t one journalist at these liberal outlets who’d even entertain the idea that the Trump campaign was anything but guilty. Discussions on cable news were not about “what if” it were true, they were about what it being true would mean and where it would lead.

The president was declared guilty, the impeachment cake had been ordered. It just turned out to be crow.

Without a beat, media Democrats moved on to the next attempt to destroy Donald Trump.

They thought they had him with Ukraine. A “whistleblower” used all the right buzzwords, the drool started flowing again. It just so happened that the words in the report didn’t add up to the words in the actual transcript of the phone call in question.

There are 540 words between “favor” and “Biden” in the transcript and, most importantly, the actual favor the president was asking for – Ukraine’s assistance in investigating Ukrainian attempts to help Hillary Clinton in 2016. If there was a hunger among Democrats to protect our elections, wouldn’t getting to the bottom of what actually happened the last time be a good place to start?


Nope, it’s a conspiracy. So is wondering how Biden’s drug-abusing kid managed to make a fortune from countries he had no background with in industries he had no experience in. And wondering how the Obama administration could spy on the Trump campaign under the guise of an unpaid advisor being a spy himself, yet that person never facing any charges whatsoever because he wasn’t a spy, is the same as believing aliens reside at Area 51.

Chuck Todd lost his mind Sunday when Senator Ron Johnson dared raise questions liberals don’t want the public to contemplate. “I have no idea why a Fox News conspiracy propaganda stuff is popping up on here,” Todd yelled before screaming down Johnson. Two CNN “media reporters” called Fox viewers and anyone who doesn’t subscribe to their worldview a conspiracy nut.

People with the truth on their side don’t have to work this hard to get people to believe them, they don’t have to demonize those who don’t. Liberals will still call you a racist/sexist/homophobe/xenophobe/whatever, but now they have a new arrow in their quiver. The only one they’re missing is the truth. That might be the biggest conspiracy of them all.
