Individual liberties died as collateral damage during The American Civil War. Nowhere is this conclusion more supported than in how the Fourteenth Amendment gets used as an oligarchical crowbar by the elitist Left in postmodern Amerika.
While the Union Army may have overwhelmingly destroyed the CSA military, they had utterly failed to change anyone’s mind with regards to whether secession was morally valid. The “winners” in the War Between the States were concerned they would win a “victory” worthy of Napoleon Bonaparte’s initial conquest of Spain (prior to Wellington’s ruinous guerilla campaign throughout The Iberian Peninsula). At its fundamental core, the Fourteenth Amendment was designed to quell rebellion and coerce both economic and political behavior.
Section Three has become particularly relevant to what the current slime elite wants to accomplish. It reads as follows:
No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any state legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any state, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.
The predictable apparatchiks that fear a competitive election in 2024 are claiming Donald J. Trump’s behavior on January, 6, 2021 counts as an insurrection. Therefore, anything that can possibly get termed an insurrection becomes a way to keep a political enemy out of an election. If cheating during an election is terrible, do so beforehand to avoid the stain of moral corruption. Using Constitutional Law to openly rig one party’s candidate selection process should work like hell as an electoral strategy.
The key here is to posit a loose and legally pliant definition of insurrection. In a nation where intellectuals seriously argue that speech can be violence, making it insurrection to say anything the boss doesn’t like shouldn’t be an overly strenuous set of mental gymnastics. Clearly, any behavior involving the expressing of sentiment beyond a pre-determined Overton Window must be denounced as insurrection. Debanking, firing, and incarcerating people rude enough to express these thoughts and beliefs simply becomes a matter of bureaucratic process and paperwork.
Interpret Section Three of the 14A in a generous enough manner with regards to what qualifies as an insurrection, and Amerika too can have a Cuban or Zimbabwean election. Democracy doesn’t have to die in darkness; it can die in the light through creative interpretation of law.
This wa, a powerful faction of Democrats always wins. Maybe 0bama runs the intelligence agencies and the Clintons runt he DOJ. They take democracy out back and kill it with an axe. Orwellian Oligarchical Collectivism then takes over and makes the entire country outside of Panem, DC akin to what Kensington, PA and Selma, AL are like today.
