Kamala Harris fumbled mightily Sunday as she showed how this claim has become the rote narrative from her administration, her party, and their media complex. She stepped on a rake as she appeared with Margaret Brennan on Face The Nation and tried to push this narrative. When asked by Brennan what she considered to be the biggest threat to our national security Harris responded, "Frankly, one of them is our democracy."
Yes, she actually said that.
All year, we have seen this accusatory rhetoric spread out from just the riot being an attack on our political system. Items as diverse as states passing voter integrity laws to gerrymandering are said to possibly topple our governmental foundation. Claims have been made that even repealing abortion laws and “radicalized Christianity” are threatening our democracy. These threats are always said to derive from the same source, with some even declaring the mere existence of Republicans constitutes the end of our political norms.
Yet it is not shocking to step back and see that what is taking place is a combination of projection and political opportunism. Democrats have been desiring an alteration to our political system because they have not wrested enough control.
Below is a list of items that have been proposed by Democrats, and supported in the press in just the past year. These are tellingly never seen as threats to our democratic system but are instead sold as a necessary means of combating their own cries of threats. Look at these proposals and agendas that the President and his party have promoted, and then try to explain how these are not threats to our democracy.
