Democratic voters’ fantasy brings the U.S. closer to a totalitarian state

Op-ed views and opinions expressed are solely those of the author.

The Democratic Party is like a runaway train on the edge of an abyss—yet millions of voters are glued to the donkey’s feet. “I don’t get it,” said a friend of mine, “why do these people continue to vote them in?” The reason is simple. Millions of Democratic voters are obsessed with a double fantasy: Trump is bad and Biden is good. This fantasy is being used to justify the Stalinist actions of the current administration.

My neighbor is a perfect example of the average Democrat voter. “I don’t like Trump,” she told me. I asked her why. “He lies all the time,” she said. When I suggested that Biden is a consummate liar, she objected. “CNN told me that Trump lies and Biden tells the truth.”

“Aren’t you aware of all the evidence that Biden is corrupt?” I asked. “That has been proven false,” she said, again relying on what she heard from CNN.

How much evidence do we have that Biden is a crook? First there is the now-famous New York Post article of October 14, 2020, that exposed Biden’s corrupt activities in Ukraine. Then there is Peter Schweizer’s well-researched book, Secret Empires, that traces the Biden Crime Family’s complicity with the corrupt Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. Next, we have the incriminating emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop. We have the video where Biden brags about extorting favors from Ukraine. And finally, there is the testimony of former Biden business partner, Tony Bobulinski, refuting Joe Biden’s denial that he was aware of Hunter’s business ventures. Biden knew about his son’s dealings, participated in them, profited from them, and lied to the American people about it.

There is a good reason why my neighbor insists none of this is true. The media have completely ignored the story of Biden’s corruption because they are in the tank for the Democrats. Failure to investigate the Biden scandal gave birth to one really devastating consequence—a crook sitting in the Oval Office. The crook is paving the way for the transformation of the U.S. into a Stalinist state.

The defining characteristic of Stalin’s Soviet Union was the weaponization of government agencies against the regime’s opponents. The Biden administration is doing just that—empowering the Deep State to crush Biden’s political opposition. The main tool in this effort is the FBI.

“The FBI is now an organization solely focused on destroying the domestic enemies of the Democratic Party,” said radio host Jesse Kelly. “They’re as far left as Lenin,” said political commentator Dan Bongino. “Do liberals not grasp how totalitarian this is?”

“It has become increasingly clear,” said Tucker Carlson on Fox News, “that the FBI is actively working on behalf of the Democratic Party. Mocking the rule of law. Subverting our democracy from within.” During Obama’s tenure, we saw how the IRS was weaponized to go after conservative groups. Biden’s FBI is engaged in the same activity against numerous allies and supporters of Donald Trump. Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, Rudy Giuliani, Peter Navarro—just to name a few.

“It seems there are two tiers of justice under the Biden Administration,” said Daily Mail. “Those who align with them politically and those who don’t.”

Not only is Biden weaponizing government agencies, he has enlisted the media in the war against his political opponents. Weeks before the 2020 election, the FBI pressured Facebook, Twitter, and other social media companies to kill the story of Hunter Biden’s laptop. According to a new poll by TechnoMetrica, nearly four out of five Americans believe that truthful media coverage of Hunter’s laptop would have prevented Joe Biden from becoming president.

In a disturbing development for freedom of speech, the White House has openly announced that it will collaborate with social media to crack down on private communication when it is critical of Biden’s vaccination policy. “The Biden administration considers censorship applicable to private speech,” said Tucker Carlson. “You won’t be able to say or read what you want because the Democrats plan to control the flow of information.”

Biden’s overreach was repeated last week as the FBI raided Mar-a-Lago, the home of Joe’s likely opponent in the 2024 election. “This is the definition of police state behavior,” said Carlson. “A government agency independently decides it is going to determine the outcome of a supposedly democratic election.”

Biden is using the Justice Department to crack down on parents who object to teaching critical race theory or sex education to third-graders. “Attorney General Garland is weaponizing the DOJ,” said Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, “by using the FBI to pursue concerned parents and silence them through intimidation.”

Another frightening example of political terrorism can be found in the irresponsible mega-spending bills on the floor of Congress. According to the latest Trafalgar Group poll, more than 71% of Americans are against Democrats’ massive spending plans that would institutionalize socialism and income redistribution by means of increased taxation, additional social programs, and money wasted on ridiculous attempts to impact climate change. Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn said that the Democratic-sponsored legislation is designed to be “a takeover of the country in one vote. They want government control of your kids. They want government control of health care. They want to demoralize the military, close the churches, destroy your faith in the American system.”

Biden is able to get away with all this because, like my neighbor, many American voters are pathetically uninformed. Widespread ignorance poses a serious threat to our democratic republic. In the best of all possible worlds, political choices are made in a rational way with critical judgment of the evidence. In our world, critical thinking is not a treasured commodity. If we taught people to distinguish fact from fiction, the impact of government lies and deception would be reduced dramatically. My neighbor serves as evidence that we are far from achieving that goal.

“The average American is fed up with being brow-beaten by a bunch of crazy left-winged radicals,” said former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

Fed up is one thing, doing something about it is another. In spite of majority opposition, Biden and the people who run his administration are getting away with their plan to fundamentally transform the nation. If we don’t fight back now with every means at our disposal, the Democratic Party will turn America into Venezuela.
