What The Washington Post Promises Will Happen If Biden Doesn’t Win In November Seems A Bit Over Dramatic.
(Tea Party 247) – When it comes to fear mongering, no one does it better than the mainstream media. All they do all day long is spin yarns about how awful and racist President Trump is and how his supporters are going to become authoritarian Nazis, doing their best to scare the living daylights out of people so they will run and vote for Biden come November.
Well, the Washington Post has decided to get in on the action now, publishing a piece that projects massive chaos and catastrophic levels of violence and unrest should Trump win reelection. Yes, Chicken Little, keep telling us that the sky is falling.
These folks are getting absolutely ridiculous.
The Washington Post has taken fearmongering to a whole new level, projecting that all election scenarios but a Joe Biden landslide will result in violence and chaos in the streets.
Georgetown University professor Rosa Brooks authored the Thursday article titled, “What’s the worst that could happen? The election will likely spark violence — and a constitutional crisis.”
The “experts” gathered by the Transition Integrity Project (co-founded by Brooks) war-gamed what they determined to be the four most likely scenarios.
They were “a narrow Biden win; a big Biden win, with a decisive lead in both the electoral college and the popular vote; a Trump win with an electoral college lead but a large popular-vote loss, as in 2016; and finally, a period of extended uncertainty as we saw in the 2000 election.”
“A landslide for Joe Biden resulted in a relatively orderly transfer of power. Every other scenario we looked at involved street-level violence and political crisis,” Brooks wrote.
It’s almost like the group was trying to both create a self-fulfilling prophecy and generate fear within the American public of a Trump second term.
The experts who played out the Republican side in the Transition Integrity Project’s war game rank among the most vocal of the NeverTrumpers, including conservative commentator Bill Kristol and former Republican National Committee chair Michael Steele.
On the Democratic side, participants included former Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, former interim Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile and former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm.
When you look at this list of individuals what do you notice about them? What do they all have in common with one another? If you answered that they all hate President Trump and always seem to assume the worst about the man, you get a hundred thousand gold stars. These stars are totally useless by the way.
The vast majority of individuals who are participating in the violence and madness that is ripping apart cities like Portland, Seattle, New York, and many others, is being carried out by radical leftists who have become members of groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa. It’s not conservatives burning businesses to the ground.
As if the fear mongering they’d already done wasn’t enough, they also have attempted to create a false scenario where Trump refuses to step down from office, discussing his refusal to state whether or not he would honor the election results.
Instead of holing himself up in the White House as The Post suggested, however, Trump has simply said he may have to challenge the outcome legally.
Remember the 2000 election? Al Gore conceded and then pulled back his concession to George W. Bush and a legal battle ensued.
Hillary Clinton has yet to accept the 2016 election results, consistently casting doubt on Trump’s win. The Obama administration foisted Russiagate on the country.
Obviously, I’m not advocating Trump do anything of the sort, but he is wise to keep his powder dry regarding the possibility of challenging the results, especially given the mail-in voting irregularities seen in New Jersey and New York this past spring and summer.
A judge has ordered a new election in the case of the former because fraudulent mail-in ballots were discovered.
More than one in five mail-in ballots were rejected in New York City during the state primary in June. It took six weeks for election officials to declare a winner in three contests.
Trump has repeatedly and rightly raised his concerns about the integrity of the election in states adopting universal mail-in voting, when ballots are automatically mailed to every registered voter on the rolls, whether requested or not.
There are legitimate concerns facing the country today. Many of those concerns are not being addressed by Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Trump, however, is addressing them. He’s talking about the issues people care about. Like the economy. Jobs. How to get back to normal after the coronavirus.
Leftists have no solutions for these problems. There are no answers that come from their side of the aisle that don’t involve usurping more power and authority from the people. This is not the kind of solutions Americans want. So the left switches up the focus. They shift attention away from issues and stir up fear instead. People, if they are scared enough, will throw away their liberty for the illusion of security.
This is their strategy.
