What is democracy?
“President Joe Biden’s speech warning about an assault against American democracy — by Donald Trump and his core followers — was an election-season call to arms unlike anything in modern American history.
It also was months in the making. …”
“Our Democracy” is the 19% of the population who are Progressive Left or Establishment Liberals.
Generally speaking, “Our Democracy” is White people with college degrees, who live in metropolitan areas on the coasts, who tend to have professional class jobs, who do not believe in God, who are liberals or progressives in their politics. These people are synonymous with Democracy. Their political faction is Democracy. The rest of us are here to be ruled by them.
When Donald Trump won the 2016 election, this was not democracy. He conspired with the Russians. He was an illegitimate president. When Liz Cheney loses her primary in a landslide in Wyoming, this is not democracy either. When Georgia tightens its election laws, this is an attack on democracy that is “Jim Crow on steroids.” When the Supreme Court strikes down Roe v. Wade because liberals lost too many presidential and Senate elections, this is not democracy.
Pro-life activists who spent nearly fifty years working through the system and suffering defeat after defeat and setback after setback to get politicians elected who would appoint and confirm judges to the Supreme Court who would overturn Roe v. Wade – thereby returning the issue to voters in the states to decide for themselves – are all extremists who a mortal threat to Democracy. It is pretty much only Democracy when this faction get their way. Everything they do like spying on and censoring their political opponents and arresting them and putting them in prison or launching aggressive, unprovoked foreign wars is Democracy and The Rule of Law.
