The Woke say they are for equality, but what they really want is sameness—equality at the lowest common denominator. And, of course, like Orwell’s pigs, they think some people (themselves) are more equal than others.
It seems likely that the 2020 Presidential election was stolen. We will never know for sure. The matter could have been settled if Trump’s Supreme Court justices had done their duty. Texas and some other States were suing Michigan and several other corrupt States for investigation of their election results. The Constitution requires the Supreme Court to adjudicate issues between the States. They ran for cover instead. Why? Because normie Republicans would rather see Biden illegally elected rather than Trump as President.
It is doubtful that there has been any election in the U.S. since 1861 that was not corrupt in some way. And we should remember this---it was the Republican party which first established massively corrupt elections during the War for Southern Independence and “Reconstruction.” Their successes for Presidents and Congress were largely the result of army-controlled polls, cynical manipulation of clueless African American voters, intimidation, and ballot stuffing.
At least three of the Republican Presidential candidates after The War were blatantly corrupt---Grant, Garfield, and Blaine. Yet Republicans claim that they are the honest party and the Democrats the crooked one. In fact, the Democrat party, except for urban machines, remained cleaner than the Republicans until FDR.
