M.B. Matthews at the American Thinker asks the question Are Republicans Prepared for the Aftermath of the Red Flood? He points out that the Democrats are fully prepared to burn, loot murder, riot, cheat, indeed, whatever it takes to win. What are the Republicans prepared to do to stop the steal?
During the period from midnight November 8 to the next days and weeks, I anticipate widespread violence and election fraud. Democrats will try to claw back some wins from their losses. They have demonstrated that nothing is too outrageous, illegal, or demonic when it comes to cheating and violence, so those two tactics will be at the forefront of efforts to negate the massive Red Flood come Wednesday morning. After all, with Biden stopped in his tracks, no more of their insanity will likely get passed. So how is the uproar likely to happen?
First will come halting the vote count long enough to “find” more ballots, something that always favors Democrats, oddly enough. Then will come the protesting, rioting, burning, property destruction, harassing of politicians, doxxing, and intimidation of Republican politicians and some SCOTUS justices.
The media will go full metal jacket, “finding” instances of GOP cheating (which will not be found) and election fraud. What are Republican power brokers prepared to do? We know the radical left Democrats are generously funded by Soros et al, but who funds conservatives, and how much?
My problem with Republicans is that they rarely anticipate Democrat chaos. They always seem to be taken by surprise. They are reactive instead of proactive. For example, what precautions are being taken right now to prevent cheating, demonstrating, burning, violence, and fraud? I am not asking what Republicans will do when these things happen. I am asking them if they are anticipating these things happening. If not, what possible excuse is there for not anticipating these things? Moreover, what do they plan to do to put out the literal and figurative fires?The Republicans have been described as the "stupid" party. by which the people making this accusation do not mean to imply that these people are literally not too smart. What they lack however is what might be described as "street smarts." But having street smarts may also be called knowledge of the way the world operates, and what is the "way the world operates" may also be described as the sin of the world. In other words, demonic.
And this is where the Fetterman debacle serves as a striking emblem of the Democratic M.O. What matters is the party’s liberal agenda, which allows people to define the terms of their own existence. Men can be women. Babies can be disposable tissue. The dysfunctional can serve in the highest functions. What matters is the party and progressive politics. Not people. Not principles. Not truth.
The most surprising thing about this is how unsurprising it is. The falsehood that Fetterman is not impaired is both shameful and shameless. There is little to no sense of embarrassment over this candidate but, rather, a shrug off and carry-on-as-normal attitude. Of course, no one could deny that Fetterman struggled and even humiliated himself. But the Left is fine with that and fine with him—and even willing to call Fetterman physically fine himself—because abortion is on the ballot.
Fetterman will vote to re-enshrine abortion in this nation, and therefore he’s fit as a fiddle. He will toe the line and that’s all that matters—not John Fetterman’s health, or his dignity, or the clumsy representation he would provide for the people of Pennsylvania. It’s the party that counts, not the person. It’s little wonder that abortion is so sacred to the Left as it dismisses personhood for the sake of power....snip...
Catholics have a political duty to remember that politics is first and foremost about people. Fetterman’s candidacy, like Joe Biden’s, reveals a Democratic derision for its members and for democracy by putting puppets and empty suits in place to promote their purposes, while unleashing an exploitive of media to force the vote instead of winning the vote. Anything to keep the machine grinding away. The individual cogs are of little individual concern so long as they keep the wheels of power and control turning.
When it comes to a Catholic perspective, one of the most important things to conclude in this matter of John Fetterman’s race for the Senate is that there should be a real sense of pity for secular slaves. It is a matter of the corporal mercy we owe our fellow men. We should feel sympathy for John Fetterman and pray for his recovery. We should feel sympathy for those who are so out of tune with truth and human dignity that they would put such a one as Fetterman forward and say he’s doing a fine job.
It is a sad display of the attitude of untruth and disrespect that increasingly governs our country. We should support John Fetterman as a man who needs our prayers, but no honest Pennsylvanian should vote for him. And that’s not party politics or bigotry. It’s common decency, which is a first principle of any civilized society. And Catholics must remain decent as the engines of the world promote indecency.
