“Less than 48 hours before start of the Impeachment Hearing Hoax, on Monday, the No Due Process, Do Nothing Democrats are, believe it or not, changing the Impeachment Guidelines because the facts are not on their side,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “When you can’t win the game, change the rules!”
Exactly right — again.
Interestingly, this is how dictatorships operate. They change the rules of the game to suit the predetermined outcome.
No, the U.S. is not a dictatorship. President Trump is free to run for President and win. People are free to support him. But the Democrats function as if we’re already in a left-wing fascist dictatorship.
Their whole approach to impeachment has been the very thing Nancy Pelosi herself warned against just a couple of months ago: one-sided, partisan and in search of facts to support a narrative.
Again: That’s how dictators operate.
Dictators count on two things. One, the force of government to silence politically incorrect views. We already have Facebook, Google and Twitter for that. But we don’t YET have the government. You can go to Facebook jail for not being a leftist, but not to real jail — yet. That will come in the form of “hate speech” (translation: dissenting speech) laws, if they ever pass. Under Democratic rule, they will.
The second thing dictators count on? An unthinking, inattentive and uncritical audience. They already have that in the millions who still watch CNN, MSNBC and who also read The Washington Post and The New York Times. People who access those propaganda machines WANT to be dictated to. They want to be lied to. They’re sheep — who think they’re sharp, “WOKE” and sophisticated. It’s hilarious. It’s pathetic. It’s also sad and dangerous.
Democrats are halfway there with the cultural and psychological climate for a dictatorship.
It’s the other half of us who will have to be dragged kicking, screaming, and whatever else it takes to come around to their point-of-view.
And it will still never happen.
