Tuesday on MSNBC’s All In, Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), who is on a roll lately spreading unhinged demagoguery in the leftist media, claimed hysterically that former President Donald Trump had “consolidated his control over the GOP,” which Raskin says now operates like “an authoritarian political-religious cult.”
“There were people who deliberately defied him, like secretary of state Brad Raffensperger in Georgia,” Raskin said. “There were dozens of election officials who refused to just nullify and vaporize the actual votes of the election. What’s interesting, though, is that Donald Trump has only consolidated his control over the GOP, which now operates like an authoritarian political-religious cult.”
Democrats always accuse their opponents of that which they themselves are guilty of. If there is any party that operates like an authoritarian political-religious cult, it is Raskin’s own.
He added, “So you’ve got an entire political party which has positioned itself outside of the constitutional order, which is attacking the outcome of our elections and our basic constitutional processes. So it’s a very dangerous moment for our democracy, and so, we want to look and see what every element of the attack on the 2020 election was.”
This is pure projection. Insert the Democrats as the subject of that last paragraph, instead of Trump and the GOP, and you have an accurate description of the current state of American politics.
