We can’t discuss the wave of disinformation jeopardizing American democracy without talking about the mothership: Fox. I don’t call it news, even if they do, because it’s not news. #RollTheTape #DemocracyInPeril pic.twitter.com/9yafVMwqfJ— Brianna Keilar (@brikeilarcnn) January 19, 2022
I actually don’t have a party. I’m an independent. My only cause is to preserve democracy—which is threatened by an increasingly autocratic Republican Party. https://t.co/ar7NdV3TsX— Max Boot (@MaxBoot) January 19, 2022
The speculation is coming from the faltering political establishment and obviously reflects their grim mood and fear of losing power through normal democratic processes.
From our perspective, Joe Biden is a lame duck president who is drowning in a sea of inflation, Wokeism and COVID. Democrats are sinking like the Titanic. There isn’t any need to go out and engage in domestic terrorism or to launch an “insurgency.” We can sit here and watch the spectacular collapse of the establishment on all fronts which been completely discredited by Joe Biden’s presidency.
We have Joe Biden to make our case for us now. 66% of Republican voters believe the Great Replacement is happening now. Ibram X. Kendi has persuaded millions of White people that antiracism is anti-White. The endgame is that our views steadily gain ground and become obvious and more broadly accepted and reflected in American politics. Coastal media continues to talk to itself inside its shrinking regional bubble. “Disinformation” continues to spread like Omicron outside of bankrupted institutions. Demands to cancel this or that person seem to be getting less effective.
No one can say what the final blow will be to the political establishment which has lost its legitimacy. Political support is rapidly evaporating. It could be something like inflation which takes down the regime in one big blow. It could be another foreign policy disaster which has become a lot more conceivable after Afghanistan. I think the most likely candidate is Trump Derangement Syndrome with the desperate and flailing establishment launching another failed color revolution like the George Floyd riots after Trump wins the 2024 election. It is only 2022 and we are already on “Jim Crow 2.0” level hysteria.
The narrative is already being set up for this: any Republican political victory is due to “voter suppression” and “election subversion” and “Jim Crow 2.0” and is thus undemocratic and illegitimate. The election was stolen from us by “white supremacists.” This will be the Democrat version of the “Big Lie.” It will be the basis for a failed coup from the establishment which will likely be the loser in 2024.
