Leftist accusations are latent confessions
By Pete Riehm

Democrats and leftists have been losing their minds over President Trump for over nine years now. After initially dismissing him as an unserious nonthreatening clown, Democrats and leftists have been making non-stop unbelievable wild allegations against Trump ever since he won the Republican nomination in 2016. The absurdity of their accusations knows no bounds, but they are also oddly revealing. Listen closely when Democrats and leftists are hurling accusations at conservatives and Republicans, because those accusations are latent confessions.

Experience tells us that whoever shouts about someone else lying is usually the liar, so when Democrats scream accusations at Trump, they are really telling what they are doing. In another recent irrational episode of “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, host Joe Scarborough and MSNBC commentator Donny Deutsch had an unhinged gripe session where Deutsch insisted any Republicans voting for Trump were “voting for the end of Democracy!” Scarborough added, “It is a vote for a candidate who doesn’t believe in the most basic principles of democracy.”

Serious accusations, but they never offer any specifics or substance – because there are none. Democrats claim they stand for fair and free elections, and that Republicans want to suppress voters because they insist only citizens vote with proper ID. But Democrats want to dilute American votes with illegal immigrants. Biden has flung open our borders to MILLIONS of illegal aliens they either want to let vote or count them in the census to give more weight to voters in blue states. They howl that voter ID laws are unfair, because they impede voter fraud through ballot harvesting—so Trump’s quest for fair elections is bigoted.

If Democrats had their way, there would be no elections. Democrats warn that Trump will halt elections, but it’s the Biden administration coordinating multiple frivolous lawsuits across several states hoping to disqualify Trump from even running. If they can remove Trump from the ballot, they will. It’s Democrats who want to deny the people a choice, not Trump.

Hillary Clinton ominously warned that Trump would seek political vengeance. The hypocrisy and irony are thicker than her cankles. Democrats have been vigorously prosecuting anyone associated with Trump for all manner of trivial charges, and have indicted dozens and jailed more than a few on the flimsiest cases. Trump should have prosecuted FBI Director James Comey, General Mark Miley, and Dr. Anthony Fauci for all manner of deception and traitorous deeds, but he didn’t. It’s clear Democrats have and will seek political vengeance, but perhaps Clinton is trying to inoculate herself from prosecution by calling it out as political beforehand. If Trump just pursues justice in his next term, many Democrats will be jeopardy.

Biden and Democrats swear Trump will be a dictator, but it’s the Biden administration who want to dictate what stove you use to cook on, what type of vehicle you drive, and generally intrude in your life. It’s Biden’s DOJ persecuting concerned parents, and is his FBI spying on average Americans. Trump just wants competition and liberty; that’s the American way.

Biden’s main reelection pitch is he is the “defender of democracy,” but voters are paying attention and not buying it. A recent NPR/PBS poll asked independents “who is the bigger threat to democracy?” Stunning cable news talking heads, 53% said Biden and 42% said Trump. Back to Scarborough and Deutsch, the leftist propaganda is not working. Americans see through the silly nonsense spewed by the left, but also realize Democrats are revealing their intentions. When Joe and Donny claim a vote for Trump is a vote to end Democracy, Americans have come to know that means Democrats will end democracy as soon as they can.

Biden is hemorrhaging support from minorities and youth. Radio host Charlamagne Tha God states he will not endorse Biden again. NFL Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor said he has always been a Democrat until he met Trump, so now he has endorsed Trump. The hackneyed Democrat clap trap about Trump has gone beyond absurd, but finally Americans are realizing that whenever Democrats yelling accusations, they are confessing their intentions.

“Therefore, you have no excuse, O man, every one of you who judges. For in passing judgment on another you condemn yourself, because you, the judge, practice the very same things” (Romans 2:1).
