For Democrats, justice is a one-way street

Most people would agree that no free society can survive without a fair, unbiased justice system, one in which everyone is treated equally and no one is above the law. While so many governments around the world are rife with corruption and unequal justice, most Americans agree that, while imperfect, our judicial system has always been the best there is.

After all, we have all the safeguards in place to help ensure integrity in our government and fairness in our justice system. First, there’s our Constitution and our three co-equal branches of government. And we have a free press, intended to serve as the conscience of our government. Then there are the people, citizens who have always banded together to stand against government corruption.

Of course, all that came crashing down for several years while our nation was still young. Less than 100 years after its birth, America became a deeply divided nation, and those divisions erupted into a bloody war between the states.

After the Civil War, it took time for our country to get back on the right track, but Americans eventually did come together to create a world superpower, accomplishing some incredible things – militarily, socially, medically, and scientifically.

But it seems that the very same political party that fought so fiercely to preserve slavery is unhappy with America’s success. Democrats have vowed to fundamentally transform our country. Once again they’re on the wrong side of history, the wrong side of morality. They’re using any means at their disposal to transform our country, and it has again created deep divisions among us. Now, the Democrat Party has begun abusing its political power in a way that would make banana republics envious. It’s employing our justice system as a weapon against its political opponents.

Democrats have always had a tenuous relationship with the law enforcement community. They envision themselves as defenders of the oppressed, and they generally perceive police as oppressors. That was especially apparent during the widespread BLM riots in the summer of 2020. Nearly every Democrat supported the anarchy, calling the riots mostly peaceful protests. Our future vice president even helped bail out some of the protestors. At the same time, they were stereotyping all law enforcement officers as racist. So began their insane movement to defund the police.

But in 2021, that same party discovered how to make the justice system work for them.

On January 6th of that year, a group of protesters, enraged by several unresolved election irregularities, stormed the U.S. Capitol. Democrats saw an opportunity. They redefined the protest as an “insurrection” and brought the full weight of our justice system down on anyone who was there.

But they didn’t stop there. They wanted Donald Trump’s head.

Today we see profoundly biased Democrat prosecutors and judges pretending that they’re above political influence. And hateful, like-minded Democrats close their eyes to their abuses of power, telling themselves that everything is on the up-and-up, that the justice system is working exactly as it should.

But they know exactly what’s really going on. To paraphrase Joe Biden, himself, they may be fanatical Democrats, but they’re not stupid.

They know that Democrat lawmakers were in such haste to impeach President Trump, not once, but an unprecedented two times, that they did it without any investigation. Both impeachments lacked merit and failed.

They know that the endless Democrat-controlled hearings on the January 6th incident served no purpose other than to hurt Trump.

They know that the four indictments and 91 individual charges filed against a former president are also unprecedented. They know that the Democrat prosecutors don’t even try to conceal their contempt for him.

They also know that those charges against Trump represent brazen examples of both selective prosecution and election interference.

For when Democrats sanctimoniously parrot the phrase, “No one is above the law,” they’re forgetting the bizarre explanations they invented to defend Democrat politicians who stepped outside the law.

First, there’s this gem: “No reasonable prosecutor would take this case.” Then there were these assurances about Biden’s theft of classified documents: “They were safely locked in his garage with his prized Corvette.” On the bribery allegations? “It’s not influence peddling if the bribes only go to his family members.” And there was the congressman who suggested that Biden, his wayward son, and “business associate” arranged a conference call to “talk about the weather.” Sometimes outright lies worked best for them: “The border is secure.”

But Democrats, handicapped by blind hatred, see nothing out of the ordinary in those unrelenting attacks on President Trump. Objective, clear-thinking Americans see a different picture. They can only conclude that they’re witnessing a political feeding frenzy – not the even-handed administration of justice.

As Democrats continue tinkering with our justice system, they’re engaging in an incredibly dangerous gambit. When citizens start to question the fairness of their justice system, when they believe it’s been corrupted, they lose respect for it. That inevitably leads to social unrest, widespread anarchy, and the eventual disintegration of society. Many would say it’s already begun.
