The totalitarian impulse which is foundational for leftist ideology is on full display as the Democrats continue to deny the legitimacy of President-elect Donald J. Trump election.
The Democrat party and their media lapdogs convinced, well, everyone that the Clinton-Trump race was no race at all. Hillary would win and the Deplorables would sink back into the guns and bible swamp, never to be heard from again.
When Hillary lost it was because of racism, because of Comey (Hillary put her server in the basement, not Comey), because the Electoral College is illegitimate (Dems had no problem when they held the alleged Blue Wall), because of fake news (as in the New York Times), and now because of the Russians.
The truth is quite simple. The Democrats lost because America is sick and and tired of a party that makes war on nuns even as they enable and provide financial support to the Iranian IslamoNazis.
The Democrats need to look into the mirror to understand why they lost. And then they need to unfasten their diapers and accept reality.
Flashback to March 2012: Barack Obama is caught on a hot mike saying to Russian President Dmitri Medvedev: “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this can be solved, but it’s important for him [Putin] to give me space.”
Medvedev: “Yeah, I understand, I understand your message about space. Space for you…”
Obama says, “This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.”
Medvedev: “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.”
Democrats were just fine with that bit of appeasement. They treated Mitt Romney with contempt because he said that Russia posed the greatest geopolitical threat to the United States.
Obama mocked: “The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back.”
Barack Obama promptly handed Syria to Putin. And then Russia invaded Ukraine.
The desperate attempt to delegitimize this election is the stuff of banana republics. The Democrat party is now emerging as a threat to Constitution, to the Republic.
