Every Disagreement With Liberal Policy Is Now A Threat To Democracy

The real threat to our democracy comes from those who howl the most about it.

Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) is now an enemy of democracy. The moderate Democrat earned this dubious title after he announced he would not support his party’s radical “voter rights” bill. The “For the People Act” would place state and local elections under the effective control of liberal bureaucrats, draw districts according to the dictates of said liberal bureaucrats, ban voter ID, expand mail-in voting, make it easier to ballot harvest, allow violent felons to vote, and much more. Legal scholar Walter Olson found at least seven provisions in the bill that violate the Constitution.

Manchin decided the bill would be a massive disservice to American democracy. “Voting and election reform that is done in a partisan manner will all but ensure partisan divisions continue to deepen,” he wrote in an op-ed published last weekend. He also reiterated his opposition to eliminating the filibuster.

For holding these positions, he was branded a threat to democracy by his fellow Democrats and liberal commentators.

“We can’t stand by and accept that Manchin, along with nearly every Republican, is going to hold hostage the legislation our country needs to address the big crises we face. Our democracy is falling apart—we can’t just let that happen,” Representative Jamaal Bowman (D-N.Y.) wrote in a CNN op-ed.

“[Manchin] should not want to be known as the senator who blocked voting rights and undermined American democracy,” said Representative Mondaire Jones (D-N.Y.).

“Democracy is going to die for Joe Manchin and [Kyrsten] Sinema’s ego and greed. Whiteness will remain undefeated,” tweeted Daily Beast columnist Wajahat Ali.

Even supposedly objective news reporters challenged Manchin for his “anti-democratic” stance. CNN’s Manu Raju tweeted: “Joe Manchin had little interest in speaking to reporters, speeding into the chamber during votes. I asked him about the criticism from progressives that he’s subverting democracy over his position on voting rights. ‘They’re all my friends,’ he told me as he went to floor.” Raju, an allegedly objective news reporter, has also grilled Manchin about why he won’t kill the filibuster. So have many other journalists who...

  1. Whiteness needs to be defeated? These people are dangerous.

  2. Did you know that the only one-word oxymoron is "Democrat"? For one of many examples, when the Texas senate was about to vote on the voting rights law that would make it difficult to cheat, the democrats walked out. That action eliminated the required quorum to vote on an issue since they knew that the majority would pass the law. They don't want a democracy - they want a dictatorship with their guys in charge. They really are scum.
