It’s become a fact of modern American life that whatever the Left accuses the Republicans (specifically Trump) of doing, the Left are either already doing, or plan to do themselves — what Glenn Reynolds often refers to as “projection”.
So, for example, the Republicans are “denying people the vote” by attempting to stop voter fraud, when in fact it’s the Left who are nullifying registered voters’ franchise by encouraging non-citizens to vote, or else busing people from poll station to poll station so that they can vote several times in the same election.
And of course, there’s the “Trump will refuse to leave office if he loses” trope — i.e. he won’t accept the result of the election, when in fact it’s the Left who won’t accept their loss:
A loss by Joe Biden under these circumstances is the worst case not because Trump will destroy America (he can’t), but because it is the outcome most likely to undermine faith in democracy, resulting in more of the social unrest and street battles.
(The article, by the way, is the biggest load of shit, but read it anyway — at least the asshole admits that the Left has no interest in accepting electoral loss.)
In presidential elections, once is a fluke; twice is a pattern. I struggle to imagine how, beyond utter shock, millions of Democrats will process a Trump victory. A loss for Biden, after having been the clear favorite all summer, would provoke mass disillusion with electoral politics as a means of change—at a time when disillusion is already dangerously high.
Thus, Trump’s first victory over the most unpopular candidate ever fielded by the Democrats was a “fluke”, and now, aided by skewed, inaccurate and dishonest polling that missed the entirety of Trump’s support in 2016, the “more popular” candidate losing will trigger dissatisfaction in the voting process? (Oh yeah… let’s hear it for “the Russians”, for whom even their own investigation — remember Robert Mueller’s little gang of hatchetmen? — couldn’t prove collusion with the Trump campaign.)
It couldn’t possibly be that American voters might reject the Left’s politics — how could it be, when the Left is inarguably so correct? After all, doesn’t everyone want open borders, sky-high taxes, a welfare state, a nationalized health system, disarmed citizens, diversity-led racist hiring- and education practices and redistribution of private wealth? (Those who don’t, of course, are EvilRaycissFascist Trumpalos, because without a class enemy, Marxism fails: time after time after time.)
No, it can’t be rejection: it must be the process. After Trump wins again in November (and assuming he doesn’t get a popular majority of the vote), expect a full-frontal assault on the Electoral College, with intimidation and threats directed at electors as well. And that’s just the political response.
If what this asshole (and many others) are telling us is correct, then in the event of a Biden-Harris loss in November we can expect not this:
Let’s see how that plays out, shall we?
We conservatives may actually have to start living up to the Leftists’ depiction of us.
And now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to the range.
