In a recent panel discussion for the Alliance of Democracies, former SecState John Kerry warned there could be revolution in the U.S. if Donald Trump wins the 2020 election — even as Kerry lays the foundation for it.
“If people don’t have adequate access to the ballot, I mean that’s the stuff on which revolutions are built,” Kerry declared. “If you begin to deny people the capacity of your democracy to work… we have an inherent right to challenge that. And I’m worried that increasingly, people are disaffected.”
“To understand why this rhetoric is so dangerous,” writes PJ Media’s Stacey Lennox, one must see how Kerry falsely frames voter suppression as the right’s strategy, and falsely frames legitimate Republican concerns about mail-in voter fraud as voter suppression.
Lennox adds that Kerry is “setting the country up” for Democrats to erupt into revolution (which, sadly, they already have) if Trump wins in November. “By choosing the election as the invigorating event, it could rock the nation to its very foundation.”
