If you’re not with us, you’re against us. The latest rhetoric of the liberal media talk show hosts to Republican lawmakers who’ve called for investigations into widespread voter fraud.
“Do you believe the election was rigged as President Trump has claimed?”
It’s the question of every Sunday political affairs show, but be careful how you answer. Your career could be in jeopardy by saying your views align with Trump. It’s the “anti-Communist” witch hunt campaign instigated by those in the mainstream media. What some would call “McCarthyism,” if you will.
For those who’re unaware, here’s a brief summary of McCarthysim.
U.S. Senator Joseph McCarthy (R-WI) came up with a anti-treason campaign against alleged communists in the U.S. government and other institutions. The events of 70 years ago left people blacklisted or they lost their jobs, although most did not in fact belong to the Communist Party. McCarthy and then Vice President Richard Nixon thought the influence Hollywood had on American institutions was infiltrated by Soviet agents.
Rand Paul (R-KY) took heat from ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos for continuing to support false claims about the 2020 presidential election.
“The debate over whether or not there was fraud should occur, we never had any presentation in court where we actually looked at the evidence. Most of the cases were thrown out for lack of standing, which is a procedural way of not actually hearing the question,” Paul said on ABC’s “This Week.”
“Sen. Paul, I have to stop you there,” ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos interjected.
“No election is perfect,” Stephanopoulos continued. “After investigations, counts and recounts, the Department of Justice led by William Barr said there’s no widespread evidence of fraud. Can’t you just say the words: ‘This election was not stolen?'”
The Kentucky senator responded, “that I would suggest is that if we want greater confidence in our elections — and 75% of Republicans agree with me — is that we do need to look at election integrity.”
Here we go. This is the point we’re at in America with the current state of politics. If you side with Trump, you’re done. If you have a difference of opinion about how the election turned out, see-ya. We’re hitting a dangerous point of censorship and hopefully it doesn’t get worse. We need to have common sense discussions on the real issues in this country without discarding people for their opinion.
