At The Blaze, Paul Gottfried explains that the overwhelming prosecutions of Donald Trump and those arrested for their actions on January 6, 2021 at (or near) the Capitol are a warning by Democrats that any future questioning of election fraud will not be tolerated. Gottfried writes:
In what seems to be a largely objective report, Newsweek points out the “impossible” situation in which the FBI now finds itself. The federal agency has been charged with keeping tight surveillance over “domestic terrorism,” and this means for the present administration going after “Donald Trump’s followers” as a dangerous threat to domestic peace and order. Not surprisingly, this move has led to a reaction among Republican lawmakers and journalists who insist this surveillance operation represents a “weaponization” of an agency that is supposed to be above politics.
Unfortunately, the bureau has now been turned against a particular national party. Moreover, the FBI’s reference to Trump’s followers can be broadly and not at all unreasonably understood as referring to the many millions of American citizens who voted for the Republican candidate in 2020. Sweeping attacks on “MAGA extremists” have come repeatedly from Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats in Congress, and we may assume these partisan speakers were not denouncing only one small group within the Republican fold. This demonization makes it clear exactly who is being demonized. It is those who had the temerity to vote against the state party.
Although such slander and harassment are divisive, they are also purposeful. They represent attempts to gear up for what will likely be a venomous presidential race next year by putting the other side on notice. Democrats expect the beleaguered opposition to play nice. If the Democrats pull out their predictable bag of tricks to win a close race, no disruptive complaints will be allowed. Just remember what happened to Trump, who was bombarded with criminal arraignments by Democratic judges for making too much fuss over the outcome of the last presidential election!
