We’re asking for a friend.
For the longest time we’ve wanted to share our ten brass obols on the subject of Donald Trump’s “refusal” to hand a blank check to the ProgNazi Party’s Fraud machine during the last debate, but we kept being distracted. The Imperial Dungeons are filled to overflowing at the time and keeping a fresh supply of lions at hand is getting to be quite the chore. The ones we had all have type 2 diabetes now and can’t move unless wheeled around on a trolley.
If you have no idea what we’re talking about, we’re talking about the exchange that went roughly (from memory) as follows:
Moderator: Are you willing to accept the election outcome no matter what?
Trump: The election hasn’t happened yet.
This promptly sent all of the #NeverTrumptards off to their fainting couches, shrieking and clutching their pearls because… reasons. From what we’ve been able to gather from their barely coherent hysterical sobs as the went in, then out of therapy, then back in again, that was absolutely unheard of because apparently it’s any candidate’s presidential duty, not to mention the duty of every single one of us benighted citizen subjects, to accept anything coming out of government ahead of time, tugging our forelocks and promising that no matter what, we’ll trust and obey regardless.
After the farcical “investigation” by Comey’s FBI of Hildebot Clintoon’s clearly treasonous and criminally negligent handling of classified material, not to mention every single other investigation of Congress’ ending up in nothing at all no matter how damning the evidence? After Project Veritas publishing, on a daily basis, irrefutable proof of ProgNazi operatives not only admitting to, but bragging of their massive vote fraud operations? After the IRS being used as the armed goons of the ProgNazis to suppress dissent up to the 2012 election (and the inevitable pointless show “investigations” not leading anywhere afterwards)? After the too numerous to count reports of precincts voting more than 100% Democrat in previous elections? We could go on for another 200 pages, but we trust you get the point.
Yet we’re supposed to just forget all about that and hand our lying, cheating, thieving oppressors a blank check to go forth and continue using us like a rented mule?
Somebody should have told those horrible, “un-presidential” Founding Fathers (according to NRO et al) that and we wouldn’t have had all of that unpleasantness with the Brits way back when.
He should have just said “sure. No matter how much evidence of fraud there is, no matter what indeed, I’ll go ahead and accept the results ahead of time, even if it comes up as 105% of voters in favor of my opponent?”
Are those driveling Cuckservative cabana boys in the habit of handing over a check to their car dealerships, promising to accept, without question, whatever lemon waits for them when they come to pick it up? Even if they know they’re about to do business with the sleaziest outfit in the city, one with an unbroken track record of fraud?
If that’s how the majority of people of these United States see it too, then they deserve every bit of the rape they’ve got coming. Problem is, the rest of us don’t.
Take it away, Kurt Schlichter (and do read the whole thing):
Okay, this is where Team Fake Pearl Clutch jumps in and whines about my “dangerous talk” and about how I have no “honor” because I won’t submit in advance to another establishment okie-doke. Yeah, sure, whatever – and the emperor caught pneumonia because the little kid pointed out that he wasn’t wearing any clothes, not because he was walking around with his junk in the wind.
The system is manifestly rigged – even Heap Big Chief Warren used to say so until a memo informed her that this meme is now inconvenient – so spare me your sanctimonious crap about our sacred system. Our loyalty is properly only to the Constitution, not a perversion of it. Just because you hold office under Article I, II, or III doesn’t mean we still owe you respect or deference when you treat your obligations to the People like a teenage Thai boy at one of Raymond Burr’s Halloween parties.
We owe the system nothing. Nada. Zip. Instead, the system owes us fairness and honesty, and without them it has no right to our default acceptance of its results. That acceptance must be earned. This means that the system must aggressively police its own integrity, and this year it has utterly failed to do so.
And if the system doesn’t get this through their fat, entitled skulls, then we predict that one day sooner or later, something else entirely will be passing through their skulls.
It’s not like there isn’t historical precedent for it.
