Gore: Trump ‘Putting His Knee on the Neck’ of Our Democracy

August 18, 2020

Sunday on CNN, environmentalist huckster Al Gore accused President Trump of “putting his knee on the neck of American democracy” with his overhaul of the failed U.S. Postal Service.

“On the postal service… this is an act of desperation, in a pandemic, voters of all ages with preexisting conditions worried they can’t breathe safely standing in line to work,” Gore declared. “In effect, by tampering with the post office, he’s putting his knee on the neck of American democracy and trying to make it impossible for people to vote by mail.”

With this emotionally manipulative metaphor, Gore is suggesting Trump’s effort to prevent election fraud through voting-by-mail is the moral equivalent of the death of George Floyd in police custody, which kicked off the current surge of Black Lives Matter rioting.

“This is really an outrageous assault on an American institution that goes back to the very beginning of our country,” Gore added. In fact, his absurd claim is an outrageous assault on logic and truth. It is the Democrats who are putting their knee on the neck of American democracy by trying to steal the election.
