The Dictatorial Democrats
They use the rhetoric of democracy to subvert it.

Those who prattle on about democracy the most support it the least. “In America, if you lose, you accept the results,” said Joe Biden on Tuesday. Meanwhile, his fellow Democrats were conducting an undemocratic stunt to thwart the people’s will in Texas. Democratic lawmakers, abusing quorum rules, fled the state this week to prevent the Legislature from passing a voting bill that a majority of Texans support.
Contrary to Biden’s pious talk, Democrats feel no need to “accept the results” of elections. If the people don’t vote in accordance with their wishes, Democrats resort to despotism. They urge activist judges to block laws and remove democratic choice through the invention of more and more bogus rights. They call for the suppression of free speech and tighter controls on “information.” They use a propagandistic media to shut down debates and eliminate their political opponents.
It is no wonder that the Democrats feel so ambivalent about the protests in Cuba. Underpinning their reluctance to decry one-party, left-wing political states is a sympathy for them. The Democrats would like to build their own one-party state, free of Trump and his “deplorables.” The Democrats don’t so much fear the censorship and political controls of left-wing tyrannies as envy them.
