In the latest episode of leftists attempting to ban everything they do not like, USA Today op-ed called for the abolishment of the United States presidency in a piece published Friday.
“This is a man who openly conspired to cheat with the help of a hostile foreign nation in a federal election,” said Tina Dupuy, offering no evidence for the ridiculous claim because, of course, there is none.
“On election night, he came in second place, yet due to a scab of slavery in the Constitution (the electoral college), this usurper has the full power of the most powerful military in history, command of the treasury, the absolute power to pardon and he can unilaterally annihilate millions of people with his command to deploy nuclear weapons,” she continued.
The idea that President Donald J. Trump “came in second” in 2016 because Hillary R. Clinton garnered more total voters is juvenile. The popular vote is not a metric by which winning a presidential election is measured. Thus, Trump did not lose anything, and conversely, Clinton did not win anything.
Likewise, the Electoral College was not established as a consequence of slavery, but rather because the Founding Fathers realized that large concentrations of certain types of voters in one area could sway a national election, effectively silencing those in less populated areas. That demographic dynamic anticipated by Constitutional framers has indeed played out over the past 242 years.
For example, the mostly-leftist population in New York City alone is equal to the population of six states put together. Without the Electoral College, the residents of those six states would have virtually no say in national elections. But that does not matter to Dupuy, who lives in New York City, and likely harbors disdain for the average American who resides in a state not bordered by an ocean.
All of these basic Constitutional facts are sorted out in middle school civics classes, which Dupuy must have skipped or fallen asleep during.
But Dupuy’s dumb ideas are actually a much deeper manifestation of the political left’s intentions. The lawless bunch wants to erase American history in an attempt to erode the rule of law. It is the same reason that leftists want Confederate statues torn down, and want to rename the city of Austin, Texas.
By erasing all symbolism of the great men who wove the very fabric of this nation, leftists can begin to unravel that fabric and replace it with lawlessness and chaos.
The violent anarchists marching in the streets are not a random phenomenon. They are a consequence of the postmodernist demagogues – particularly on university campuses – who preach the hatred of America to impressionable young people, and would be happy to rip up the Constitution and start anew.
“My fear isn’t Trump; it’s that the next autocrat is most likely smarter and savvier than Trump,” wrote Dupuy. “Every partisan from every niche of American politics should be alarmed. We have a branch of government that stinks so bad it’s wafted over the entire nation and its outer territories. The entire world sees it. We’re in trouble. The presidency is broken. Our little democratic experiment is in peril.”
Unsurprisingly, Dupuy did not share a similar concern about the office of the presidency during Barack H. Obama’s two terms. And by the way, our “little democratic experiment” produced what is historically the finest, most-productive nation, governed by the most forward set of laws, ever to grace the earth.
Dupuy argues for a bicameral legislature and pure democracy, similar to that of Britain. That “perfect” system recently produced a mob-rule vote on Brexit, where a 51 percent majority voted to leave the European Union in 2016, eventually on behalf of the other 49 percent. The bicameral Parliament has been dragging its feet ever since, squabbling over whether to proceed or ignore will of the majority.
The result has been chaos among the British citizenry. And that is exactly what Dupuy, and radical leftists like her, want for America.
Tulsi Gabbard Condemns Domestic Terrorism Bill as Potentially Targeting Run-of-the-Mill Trump Supporters and Right-Wingers
The ex-House member is speaking out against members of her own party.
Former presidential candidate and ex-representative Tulsi Gabbard is speaking out against a Democrat-introduced bill to combat “domestic terrorism.” She warns that it might be used to label everyday Christian conservatives and other right-wingers as “extremists” who ought to be monitored.
Speaking with Brian Kilmeade on “Fox News Primetime” Friday evening, Gabbard criticized the bill introduced by Democratic representative Brad Schneider (IL-10). Officially known as H.R.350, it seeks “to authorize dedicated domestic terrorism offices within the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to analyze and monitor domestic terrorist activity and require the Federal Government to take steps to prevent domestic terrorism.”
If passed, the bill would in theory give the DHS, DOJ, and FBI more tools and resources to monitor certain groups and individuals they consider to be potential domestic terrorists. But Gabbard, a Democrat, worries that it could be used in practice to cast a wide net and label almost half the country as extremists or potential extremists.
“When you look at their process and they start looking at what characteristics we’re looking for as we are building this profile of a potential ‘extremist,’ what are we talking about?” Gabbard inquired. “Religious extremists, are we talking about Christians? Evangelical Christians? What is a religious extremist? Is it somebody who is pro-life? Where do you take this?
“You start looking at, obviously, has to be a white person, obviously likely male, libertarians, anybody who loves freedom, liberty, maybe has an American flag outside their house, or people who attended a Trump rally,” she continued. “Once you start walking this down the path, you see where it leads: to a very dangerous undermining of our civil liberties, our freedoms in our Constitution, and a targeting of almost half of the country.”
Her remarks come not just in response to Representative Schneider’s bill, but also to the comments by ex-CIA Director John Brennan in which he said that Joe Biden’s administration is “moving in laser-like fashion” to combat something he claims is “very similar to insurgency movements that we’ve seen overseas,” something in the United States that’s akin to an “unholy alliance” of “religious extremists, authoritarians, fascists, bigots, racists, nativists, and even libertarians.”
Gabbard also called on President Biden to disavow Brennan’s remarks and work to build the “unity” he so often stressed during his presidential campaign.
“This whole effort, whether you’re talking about this bill or people saying that we have to deprogram these Trump cultists […] all of this just goes to further tear our country apart. And it moves towards what Joe Biden said in his inauguration speech that shouldn’t happen, which is a dehumanization of your opponent. […] He needs to denounce people like John Brennan and their statements, bills like the one Adam Schiff put forward, and truly speak to the American people about how we must come together around the Constitution and around our Bill of Rights, around these rights that have been endowed to us by our Creator,” she said.
