A recent HuffPost piece’s headline proclaims, “The Insurrection Isn’t Over.”
“The insurrection didn’t end on Jan. 6,” the story says. “It was just beginning.”
In other words, non-violent disagreement with the Left has been tantamount to a violent “insurrection” against the United States government. In the article’s view, unobjectionable voting laws are “voter suppression laws” and “[p]reparations for [e]lection [s]ubversion.”
The story says that “[l]arge numbers” of Republicans condone violence when that’s statistically not the case. The root cause of this ongoing lawlessness is, of course, former President Donald Trump, “the same force that drove the insurrection.”
“The stolen election lie that inspired the Jan. 6 insurrection now inspires voter suppression legislation that could be used by partisan forces to prevent Democrats from winning in 2022 or 2024,” the article says. “Republicans aren’t just trying to fix elections to benefit them in the future. In states like Arizona, Georgia, Michigan and New Hampshire, they’re still trying to change the 2020 election results.”
Republicans’ concerns about mail-in voting have prompted states to limit the practice, but HuffPost reported that they have done so based on Trump’s lies about its potential for fraud and corruption.
The article repeatedly brands the GOP as “anti-majoritarian,” speaking of its “anti-majoritarian turn” and “anti-majoritarian actions.” It fails to acknowledge the Electoral College, whose winning candidate can differ from the candidate who received a plurality of the popular vote.
That happened as recently as 2016 and in 2000 as well, with then-candidates Trump and George W. Bush taking the Electoral College, respectively.
Perhaps most concerning is the article’s insistence that “[l]arge numbers” of Republicans condone violence. That’s patently false.
Only about a quarter of Republicans agreed with a poll’s statement, “Because things have gotten so far off track, true American patriots may have to resort to violence in order to save our country.”
In another poll, most Republicans disagreed with the statement, “If elected leaders will not protect America, the people must do it themselves even if it requires taking violent actions.”
Notably, merely 13 percent of Republicans “completely” agree that violence is required. The article claims the opposite of that statistical truth. It says that “[l]arge numbers of Republicans have also internalized a lesson from Trump’s insurrection: that violence is necessary to ‘make America great again.'”
While many conservatives disavow violence, liberals openly embrace it. “No justice, no peace” has been a rallying cry on the Left. High-ranking Democrats like Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) and Maxine Waters (Calif.) have justified and incited violence.

The Democrats have unwittingly been planting seeds for such an event for a long, long time. They are trying to see how far they can push the American people and I truly believe that they are well aware that public anger and distaste for them can boil over at any moment.
THEN LET IT boil over.
Stop talking about it, as it ‘may happen’, when its NOT…
“Republicans aren’t just trying to fix elections to benefit them in the future. In states like Arizona, Georgia, Michigan and New Hampshire, they’re still trying to change the 2020 election results.”…..
I wholeheartedly agree. Fixing this mess should be on the tip of every red-blooded American’s lips. Fixing as in REPAIRING that which the Democrat party of criminals has already damaged, almost beyond repair. To Fix the problem will benefit ALL Americans, unless you use the Democrats definition of “Fix” that means the election is now “In the bag”, they the personification of crumpled empty bags which never can stand upright, because they contain no integrity, and can only fill their own bags by emptying the bags of others in money and now in dishonest votes. Huffington herself only filled her own empty bag by marrying a rich Republican and then taking him to the cleaners in divorce, only to use those funds for more of the same mischief, now on a national political scale.
IT shouldn’t be rocket science. IF YOU ARE american, you should be in FAVOR OF ensuring our voting is FREE OF FRAUD>..
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the Democrat Party can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie.
It thus becomes vitally important for the Democrat Party to use all of its powers to repress the truth, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the “Democrat Party.”
Which group of voters are more rational, intelligent patriots? Republicans or Democrats?
Which group of voters are self-centered and Hateful? Republicans or Democrats?
What is the mentality of the groups that votes for a corrupt, demented, traitorous, lying career politician?
President Donald Trump put the U.S.A. and our citizens First. 🙂 🙂 🙂
Puppet president Betrayal Biden puts the U.S.A. and our citizens LAST. 🙁 🙁 🙁
