Do not be alarmed. Do not attempt to adjust your TV; it is not a faulty signal or your set. This is only a credibility crisis being streamed live to your living rooms or personal device. Brought to you by all the sponsors who have been working so hard, both behind the scenes and overtly, in the last four years.
I could name names starting with the media and active elected officials, even employees of the federal government. You know who you are. You want to think of yourselves as spectators but you are not. You think of yourselves as sanctimonious.
You are just as much active participants as the people who stormed inside the hallowed walls of the Capitol yesterday. You have responsibility. This couldn’t have happened without your willing participation in a four year assault on our system.
Now it has culminated in yet another election. But this time you got the results you wanted, This time you are satisfied with all your sordid efforts, no matter what it took. This time, for once, you are not in dissent with the results. Well, welcome to our world.
So one must take a stand and condemn the acts of violence? Now this demands everyone condemn it? There is no place for this activity? Where were they for months and months? But now, now it is wrong and it must be decried, unequivocally?
Don’t act like these are shocking results and pictures. Don’t feel so offended. What did you expect? What did you want to see happen? We know the goal all along.
The people were the butt of it.
Suddenly you want to preach about division and unity. You want to wax on process and the Constitution…. after months of defiling it. It is you, who have defined “democracy” downward.
I witnessed firsthand some of the coverage on Cspan. I watch the hosts feign outrage and take calls. While for months omission of the symptoms were ignored.
Every time the left does something, it is roundly ignored and then parsed down as if no one did anything wrong. But the first time the right does something, it is called an “attack on our democracy”. I’m sick of it.
Is our democracy so fragile that it cannot be questioned when it colors outside the lines, when it acts irresponsibly? Wasn’t our democracy under attack, under siege, for four years by the Left? I don’t care whether you call them BLM, Antifa, Bernie socialists, Marxists or social justice warriors. They have levied a war against our system for years.
They challenged a legitimate election for four years. Hillary told Joe Biden not to concede any loss, ever. She said he would win in the end. What did she mean? Now she says results of an election are being undermined, “democracy is under attack.”
The media has culpability in this. The media are the watchdogs. They stopped looking and caring. They didn’t want to look at any of the problems. They ignored it all. You can bet that had the election been the other way, every story would be chased down about what went wrong with the election — the way it was the last time. They spent four years investigating the 2016 election.
All I am saying is if the press and media are dead, then democracy is not far behind either. But that is not the end of it. That is only the starting point of the consequences to follow. Press and media have been whistling past these problems for years. In fact they have been laying the foundation for them and encouraging them.
Are answers to much to ask and expect?
So suddenly the media arises from its slumber to call all the people in the street thugs. They call it an insurrection. They even called it treason. They even say it is led from the top, Trump is organizing it.
Well, for eight years we had these commie organizers, thugs, and urban terrorists logging countless visits in the White House under Obama. Nothing was said about that. And we saw the fallout of “Occupy” movements and violent protests, shutting down highways etc. But it was dismissed wholesale.
All we want is a serious inquiry and a real investigation. If you spent four years on Russia, isn’t America worth it? How much fraud is enough? I’ve asked that before because the goalposts have moved. No fraud should be tolerable, it is the standard. Or was the standard. Now the goalpost is if fraud has made a difference and would alter the results of the election, then and only then it is intolerable.
But all the people want is a real meaningful investigation with real results of how we got here. Don’t talk about blanket reform garbage. That’s how we got here, They just reformed the entire election process but we are not suppose to notice or care? Just like they are reforming police and our justice system into the swamp. Anarchy is the new normal.
So they can call us the people any name they like, as if it were the answer: rioters, a mob, thugs, insurrectionists to traitors. But that solves nothing. The metamorphosis of their ever-evolving swamp continues, mostly unabated or unchallenged. Yet we stepped out of line. We stand condemned by the very swamp that brought it on.
Is democracy suddenly so fragile that it cannot be questioned or investigated? After all these months of uncivil disobedience, riots and sedition — all unchecked — now merely questioning the official process is a bridge too far.
They call the Capitol their temple of democracy. They said it was under siege yesterday. It has been under siege for years, and attacked relentlessly… along with the people who respect it.
What we ask is for an investigation to be honestly carried out and their newfound rules be examined, along with their means. We should demand nothing less. But democracy, like the freedom of press and speech, is dying on the vine and no one is trying to save it. In fact, they are pouring toxins on it put it out of its misery.
They are afraid of mob rule after we have been subjected to it for years. Media could not even report the attacks.
There is a credibility crisis in America.
