In Brief: The Manic Methods of Mad Democrats

We’re no longer dealing with the party of JFK and LBJ, or of Bill Clinton or even Barack Obama, for that matter.

“For all Joe Biden’s talk about ‘semi-fascist’ and ‘un-American,’ ‘ultra-MAGA’ Republicans, it is the Democratic Party that has far more radically changed,” says historian Victor Davis Hanson. He argues that it has “descended into a woke, neo-socialist, radically green party, and it’s aim is "fundamentally transforming America.” He outlines several ways in which that agenda is being pushed.

Election Warping

Before any presidential or midterm election, strict news suppression ensures that all bad news will follow, not precede, the voting. The Twitter files, Project Veritas ambush interviews, the Podesta emails, and occasional left-wing braggadocio like Molly Ball’s now infamous post-2020 election revelations in Time magazine, confirm the fusion between the media and the Democratic Party.

Hunter Biden? No one heard of him or the corruption his laptop revealed until after the 2020 election. Hanson notes that “voters who knew of the story might have changed their vote had they known the truth.”

Joe Biden, his lawyers, and the Justice Department likely knew that Biden had violated national security laws surrounding classified documents. Yet they suppressed that information until the 2022 midterms were over. The same is true of the pre-midterm news blackout of the massive fraud of mega-Democratic donor Sam Bankman-Fried.

Hanson also notes Biden’s student loan gambit and his plunder of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, both of which were intended to influence election results.

Projection

The Democratic Left has mastered the art of projection. Most of their own nefarious activity (now soon to be revealed) will be recalibrated as the crimes of their opponents.

Hillary Clinton used three firewalls to conceal her employment of the fabulist Christopher Steele. He, in turn, never set foot in Russia to do any research. Instead, Steele, via money from the Clinton stream, enlisted a Moscow-based Clintonite Charles Dolan and Russian Brookings Institution analyst Igor Danchenko, either to invent fantasies, or pass on real Russian disinformation.

Clintonites in and out of government then released the resulting concocted “dossier” to the media on the eve of the 2016 election, supposedly proving that Trump was, as James Clapper would later lie again, “A Russian asset.”

In truth, Hillary was a colluding conduit for Russian disinformation and tried to warp the election by spreading Steele’s lies among top government officials to lend authority to preplanned media leaks, as the FBI deceived FISA court judges to spy on Clinton’s political opponents.

The same projection goes for “election denialism, which began in earnest in 2000.” That’s when Democrats kept harping on the phrase that George W. Bush was “selected not elected.” It continued in 2004 and 2016. Hanson says, “Since 2000, as a general truism, the only presidential elections Democrats did not deny were those they won.”

He continues regarding suppression by using Twitter and Facebook to censor and silence political opponents, as well as changing the rules, which Democrats do whenever it helps them win. Impeachment, filibuster, Electoral College, voter ID, mail-in ballots and early voting, the Supreme Court’s makeup, adding new states — all the enacted changes or wishlist items of Democrats. He adds the problem of asymmetry,“ which is says is "the notion that the Left’s moral superiority earns absolute exemption from the very methods they employ against their opponents.”

Hanson concludes:

Conservatives should be aware that they are not dealing with the party of JFK and LBJ. The Democratic Party has nothing in common with the agendas of a slick Bill Clinton and is well beyond the “fundamental transformations” of arch-narcissist Barack Obama.

We are faced with a strictly disciplined, no-nonsense revolutionary party, well known from history that aims to change the nation into something unrecognizable by most Americans. And it feels that it has now created the means to do it.
