Our ‘Democracy’ Is Just Fine, It’s Democrats That Are Threatened

If we had a dollar for every time some whiny leftist on cable news whined about a “threat to our democracy” we could pay off the national debt and have enough left over for an epic bender in Vegas with Hunter Biden. The only thing missing from the Democrats’ cries is any actual threat to our system of government from anyone but themselves. The real threat that has them upset is the American public threatening their hold on power by voting their worthless selves out of office.


“The Republicans are dangerous!” cried the progressive seeking to criminalize speech; declaring everything they don’t like to be some kind of hate crime. What the left has become in pursuit of absolute power is akin to the greatest despots of the last century, each of which was men of the progressive left. These people aren’t trustworthy enough to water our plants when we go out of town, let alone run the country. 

Democrats are terrified the American people are about to strip them of their ability to pass legislation, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. What has them concerned even more is the prospect of them being held to account; of being exposed. 

If Republicans retake the House and/or the Senate (and the Senate is more important since it would come with the ability to weed out and block radical Biden appointees, especially to the federal judiciary), there will be investigations launched into the left’s corruption. While that may not be of much interest to you, it is of keen interest to them. Not only because Democrats established defying Congressional subpoenas as an offense worthy of contempt of Congress, one of the few offenses they support sending people to prison for, but because it would mean transparency for more than just the Biden administration. 

Whatever the January 6th Committee discovered and hid will be fair game for release by Republicans. Every piece of exculpatory evidence, anything that contradicts the left’s narrative, is fair game for release. That is terrifying to Democrats, as they’ve expressly constructed the committee to prevent that from ever happening. 


Naturally, looking at that evidence might expose which member also leaked information to the media, another thing the left would kill to keep secret. 

Then there’s the Biden family’s business. More investigations have been launched into the Trump family business than even the Kennedy assassination, but somehow how a career politician and this junkie son managed to bring in the GDP of a small nation while amid “public service” remains unexamined. It won’t be for long. 

Have no doubt the Biden White House will obstruct everything it can, and the Democrat media will ignore as much as possible, but we no longer need them to get the truth out. The left wakes up in a cold sweat at the prospect of the public peeking, even a little, behind the curtain.

That’s what Democrats are truly afraid of: being exposed. They’ll claim other things, and whine about this or that, but they will do anything to avoid the public learning what they do in the shadows. 

That means the next week and a half are going to be the most frantic, paranoid, and lie-filled 9 days in your lifetime. Over that time, reality will be treated like an attractive waitress around Ted Kennedy and Chris Dodd, an intern in Bill Clinton’s White House, or a junior-level staffer working for then-Senator Joe Biden.

The attack on Paul Pelosi is a perfect example of how the left will operate through the election. “It had to be a right-winger because he said ‘Where’s Nancy?’ like those evil January 6th selfie-takers!” the cried. Weird how they would know that considering the only other person in the house, presumably, when the attacker allegedly broke in was, at best, semi-conscious when police arrived, having suffered a fractured skull from a hammer attack, right? Don’t ask questions. 


Don’t ask about how a nudist illegal alien from Canada who espoused left-wing tropes is a “right-winger” because he said things similar to leftists Jenny McCarthy and Robert Kennedy Jr on vaccines, lest your eyes cross from confusion. Remember, if a Democrat declares something to be so, it is so. Even if that Democrat is the Wall Street Journal

And never question a Vice President who, after actively raising bail money for violent rioters trying to murder police officers, and working for a President who accuses Americans who oppose his agenda of being “semi-fascists” and “violent extremists,” who then whines – with a straight face – about the rhetorical tone of political discourse in the country because of Pelosi. 

And always remember that it’s inappropriate to celebrate an attack on even a tangentially political figure like Paul Pelosi…but cool when a scumbag like Pelosi’s daughter celebrates the physical attack on a Republican like Rand Paul because Republicans are evil. 

But watch YOUR rhetoric!

The Democrat Party is a ball of hypocrisy and fraud hurtling toward a public finally sick of their failures. Democrats will do anything to prevent that loss. They are continually undermining the concept of democracy by declaring any loss in it by them a threat to it. In reality, the only thing under threat is the Democrats’ hold on power, and with it their ability to cover the tracks of their past frauds. Vote!
