Today I am going to delve into a very dark place with spirits of hatred and bitterness so pronounced that it could curl your toenails. .
But first, this place broadcasts openly calling itself the purveyor of facts and the go to source for news — at least in airport terminals and waiting rooms across America.
That place, otherwise known by the letters CNN, is not a place I recommend but if you go there, you may be stained for life. It could even give one nightmares. Take this particular episode of Anderson Cooper 360, guest hosted by John Berman.
The panelists included David Gergen, Douglas Brinkley. And Gergen with Caroline Cohen authored a piece for CNN on the Trump/Biden transition as a discussion primer.
“It has become clear that Trump & Co are deliberately trying to sabotage the Biden presidency. Some 50 million Americans appear to believe Biden is illegitimate. We have never seen this before & it is quite dangerous.”
Sabotage, Really? Never? I’m shocked!
“This is a big deal in our national life. As the Reuters reporters wrote, the widespread rejection of the election results among Republicans “reflects a new and dangerous dynamic in American politics.”
“Doing the math, that means on the day Biden takes the oath of office, over 50 million Americans will believe he is an illegitimate president. Collectively, they could be a powerful political force for years to come. Though opposing parties have questioned the legitimacy of elections in the past, never before have such beliefs been grounded in a calculated campaign of misinformation.”
”Never before has the opposition undermined the legitimacy of a new president before he has even taken office to anything like this degree or in this fashion.” [Factcheck that one!– BBC]
“It’s important to remember that this hasn’t happened by accident. It is increasingly clear that for months, Trump and his campaign surrogates have engaged in a systematic effort to kneecap Biden and his presidency. In the lead-up to the election, Trump repeatedly questioned the legitimacy of mail-in ballots and suggested he wouldn’t accept the results of the election if he lost. In short, this has been a deliberate campaign of sabotage, undertaken with scant regard for how much damage it may inflict upon our democracy.”
“[Trump] expects to gain political influence from the millions of people who believe in him more fervently than they do in our democratic traditions.”
On A/C 360, Brinkley agreed with Gergen claiming it is bizzaro. Then he questioned the sanity of Trump, predicting Biden may not succeed in unifying the country and that Trump probably doesn’t go to the swearing in.
The piece suggests opposition to Biden is a threat, worrying how it could be stopped. One conclusion seems to be betting on Trump investigations to continue harassing him.
So their wishful strategy has become clear if it wasn’t before election — try to marginalize Trump and no doubt his supporters. Their fear is Trump could inhibit Biden’s agenda.
Well, guess what, to Gergens and the Brinkleys, we are not going away. And the tens of millions of people, 73 by their count, are not going to cover our heads or go away.
Maybe you will grow some self-awareness to see the pendulum swings both ways. All you have done to Trump for his entire term, and now you would prefer some semblance of calm, unity, or kumbaya for Biden and will feel cheated if you don’t get it? Come on, man!
Well, welcome to reality and it’s a bitch.
You honestly expect that people would forget the way Trump was treated by the media and Left, who now want to prop up Biden? And forget the Swamp that tried to take him down. You’re kidding. CNN even hired the lawless, discredited former officials.
So Number 2 of the coup is getting no pass from us.
But it does sound like some people are getting a little worried about reality.
