I grew up in a town of about a thousand people, where an election did not last all that long in terms of the votes that had to be counted. Often times, if a guy lost, he would take the winner out to breakfast the next morning.
I wish things were a lot like that with the presidential elections, but it sadly isn’t the case.
Liberals are already promising all kinds of hateful things to be happening when the moment comes that Joe Biden loses.
The Washington Post has taken fearmongering to a whole new level, projecting that all election scenarios but a Joe Biden landslide will result in violence and chaos in the streets.
Georgetown University professor Rosa Brooks authored the Thursday article titled, “What’s the worst that could happen? The election will likely spark violence — and a constitutional crisis.”
The “experts” gathered by the Transition Integrity Project (co-founded by Brooks) war-gamed what they determined to be the four most likely scenarios.
They were “a narrow Biden win; a big Biden win, with a decisive lead in both the electoral college and the popular vote; a Trump win with an electoral college lead but a large popular-vote loss, as in 2016; and finally, a period of extended uncertainty as we saw in the 2000 election.”
“A landslide for Joe Biden resulted in a relatively orderly transfer of power. Every other scenario we looked at involved street-level violence and political crisis,” Brooks wrote.
It’s almost like the group was trying to both create a self-fulfilling prophecy and generate fear within the American public of a Trump second term.
The experts who played out the Republican side in the Transition Integrity Project’s war game rank among the most vocal of the NeverTrumpers, including conservative commentator Bill Kristol and former Republican National Committee chair Michael Steele.
On the Democratic side, participants included former Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, former interim Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile and former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm.
What do all these people have in common? They hate Trump, and they assume the worst about him.
