The further to the left or the right you move, the more your lens on life distorts.

In the interest of "unity," our better angels tell us, we should accept the results of an election that has been exemplified by many, many red flags indicating, but admittedly not yet proving, that there have been rather substantial voting irregularities in blue cities within battleground states. We should shrug our shoulders and think that any irregularities that occurred wouldn't effect the outcome. We should capitulate to the gaslighters who tell us that there has been absolutely no "widespread" voter fraud and that anyone who wants to investigate the subject is a "sore loser" or a "conspiracy theorist." We should "move on" because all of this isn't good for the country. 


But it's even worse for the country to have tens of millions of voters believe that their vote has been compromised, that mail-in ballots were manipulated, that same-day registrations were bogus, that thousands of dead people voted, that turnouts within blue cities in battleground states inexplicably outpaced voter turnouts in blue cities in places like NYC or LA, that software errors (for software used in 30 states) oddly seemed to benefit only Joe Biden in vote count, and much more. And that the denials that any of these things happened by government officials and corporate chieftans should be believed when the same categories of people blatantly lied and told us, for instance, that there was no spying on or any attempt to disrupt the Trump administration in 2016 - 2018.

Had Joe Biden won by the landslide that his media pollsters predicted, none of this would be an issue. But he didn't—his margins in many battleground states are razor thin.

Given the red flags and the thin margin of victory, wouldn't it be better to conduct a brief, but thorough investigation where evidence of wrong-doing is presented? If there is no evidence of wrong-doing or blatant violations of law, the courts will dismiss any lawsuits and we can all move on, satisfied that the election is clean. In fact, why would the Democrats object to this? Voter fraud is something that everyone should oppose—everyone.

During the past week across the entirety of the media, we've heard calls for "unity." The implication is that anyone who has questions resulting from all of the red flags is against unity.

David Harsanyi comments:

What “unity” really means, of course, is capitulation. America is once again being subjected to the inane brand of pseudo-patriotic sloganeering we saw during the Obama years. Now, as then, the media will pretend that the moral fabric of the nation must be mended after Republican rule. It’s pretty transparent. When Democrats win the presidency, we are treated to solemn calls for national restoration and political harmony, and to the expectation that, for the good of the nation, the opposition will embrace decorum and pass legislation they oppose. When Republicans win elections, grown women put on knitted hats depicting their reproductive organs and stomp around Washington protesting, all to a hero’s welcome.

Time magazine, the same publication that helped erode trust in our electoral system with conspiratorial covers of the White House morphing into the Kremlin, now offers a commemorative cover featuring Joe Biden and Kamala Harris with the words, “A time to heal.” Unlike some of our progressive friends, I don’t believe in enemies lists or censorship ... 

In 2016, the Democratic party was considerably less than gracious in defeat. It investigated specious (and ultimately disproven) claims of Russian collusion not for two months, but for two years, conducted a soft coup within the federal government to unseat an elected president, and called for "resistance and impeachment" immediately after the 2016 election. There was NO unity.

Maybe, just maybe, in a show of "unity" that they tell us they want so badly, the Dems should encourage a brief and thorough investigation into the vote count in PA, GA, WS, MI, AZ, and NV. And not just a "recount," but an audit that might uncover fraudlent votes that were either submitted (by say, dead people) or manufactured. Joe Biden can take the lead, because as he tells us, "there are no red and blue states, just the United States." Inspiring words no doubt, but at the end of the day, it's actions—not words—that matter.


The Democrat drumbeat for "unity" is accompanied by relentless calls for "civility." I am in agreement with both sentiments, until I think about how the Democrats recently acted when they were not in power. George Neumayr comments:

Joe Biden’s campaigns have rested on the most rancid racial politics. In 2020, he routinely accused his opponent of racism and support for white supremacism, drawing on nothing but his own libelous twisting of Trump’s words after the rioting in Charlottesville. In 2012, Biden had accused Republicans of planning to put blacks “back in chains.” His venom came out also on non-racial matters ...

But now Biden’s thoughts turn to civility. He promises to lead us out of a “grim era of demonization.” Biden is not the first Democrat to peddle this claptrap. Indeed, it is a standard hypocrisy of Democrats: out of power, they extol incivility; once they regain power, they denounce it ...

In times of political exile, Democrats countenance all manner of incivility. They cheered as John Lewis and company boycotted Trump’s inauguration. They defended a play in Central Park that depicted a Trumpian figure stabbed to death. They laughed as comedienne Kathy Griffin held up a mock-severed head of Trump. More recently, they found nothing to condemn in the monstrously uncivil rhetoric of Black Lives Matter.

After four years in which not only Donald Trump, but tens of millions of his followers, were accused of racism, misogyny, traitorous activity, and general bigotry, it is the height of hypocrisy for the Dems to now call for "civility." But maybe they've seen the error of their ways and truly want a more civil political discourse. After all, the Left and the new Democratic party are known for that, aren't they?
