NEW YORK — Yet again, Democrats have mastered psychological projection. Rather than brighten the darkness in their own souls, they accuse Republicans of practicing Democrats’ sins. Their latest allegation: The GOP jeopardizes democracy itself.
–“The former president and his supporters have decided the only way for them to win is to suppress your vote and subvert our elections,” President Joe Biden said Thursday at the U.S. Capitol. Marking one year since overzealous Trump backers rioted there, Biden added: “It’s wrong. It’s undemocratic. And frankly, it’s un-American.”
–Vice President Kamala Harris alluded to President Donald J. Trump’s voters as “the forces who seek to dismantle our democracy.”
–Congressman Eric Swalwell (D – California) told MSNBC on Monday that if Republicans win November’s midterm elections, “voting in this country as we know it will be gone.”
For Biden, Harris, Swalwell, and their comrades, bellowing about Republicans killing democracy is easier than conceding that Democrats, not the GOP, have battered America’s democratic norms and institutions non-stop since at least 2016.
That year, Obama’s Justice Department and FBI spied on the opposition party’s presidential campaign. The Russiagate probe was Watergate without the break-in. The basis for Democrat espionage against Trump was the so-called “Dirty Dossier,” funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democrat National Committee. Team Hillary then leaked these Russian lies to pro-Democrat news outlets (excuse the redundancy), which injected them into the public debate over Clinton and Trump.
Soon after Trump’s upset victory, Democrats used print ads, TV commercials, and death threats to pressure Trump’s Electoral College representatives to change their votes.
When this gambit failed, at least 54 congressional Democrats boycotted Trump’s inauguration, dissing America’s peaceful transition of power.
Former President Jimmy Carter said, “Trump didn’t actually win the election in 2016.” Hillary Clinton called Trump “an illegitimate president.”
For three years, Democrats advanced the full-throated lie that Trump was a Russian agent. Former FBI chief Robert Mueller’s probe found such paranoid charges utterly baseless.
ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter rioters trashed and burned government buildings in summer 2020. While some Democrats cheered these rioters, Kamala Harris actively raised bail money to spring them from jail.
Democrats weaponized COVID-19 to bludgeon centuries-old voting procedures. “Temporary, emergency measures” included no-excuse absentee ballots, mass mail-in ballots sent to all registered voters (alive or dead), diluted or discarded witness-signature requirements, unsupervised ballot drop boxes, and more. Many of these changes were made by secretaries of state, county commissioners, and judges – but not state legislatures, as the U.S. Constitution mandates.
Some of this lawlessness occurred well after voting had begun. With no authority to do so, then-Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar (D – Pennsylvania) waited until 8:38 p.m. on Election Eve to direct county officials to return erroneous mail-in ballots to voters, so they could “cure” and re-submit them.
On Election Night 2020, vote counting mysteriously and inexplicably stopped in Atlanta, Philadelphia, and other Democrat strongholds. Ballots normally are counted overnight, until winners emerge. Instead, canvassing was halted.
A tabulation room at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena was cleared at 10:30 p.m. so election officials could “retire” for the evening. In fact, after journalists and GOP election watchers were sent home, surveillance cameras caught poll workers removing boxes from beneath a covered table and placing the contents — ballots — into counting machines until 1:00 a.m.
“We want all the Republican challengers out of this room!” yelled a man wearing an official-looking lanyard in a Detroit, Michigan, vote-counting facility. Anti-transparency authorities then covered this tabulation room’s windows with cardboard. Georgia and Pennsylvania were among the states where Republican poll watchers were barred from counting rooms or kept too distant to scrutinize vote tallies, inspect absentee-ballot signatures, and otherwise perform their solemn duties.
Democracy dies in darkness.
Democrats relentlessly have jackhammered the pillars of America’s democratic elections. They are democracy’s natural enemies. And rather than own this despicable distinction, Democrats do what they do best: Accuse everyone else of their own evil.

I guess these people like people hating them, they like turning people away from them , thy like killing people, they have displayed hating the USA they have shown hatred toward the American citizens towards Senior’s , the disabled , they hate American citizen’s living well in their neighborhoods, being able to make repairs on their homes, living a happy life & healthy future, being able to pay their bills , they like to see American suffer. for their own geed,& dysfunctional mental psychological wants, they know how to love but their leadership is all about control a severe psychiatric disorder which needs to be watched for evaluation of not being allowed to be around or to serve people .
Cheating is the only way a demon Democrats can win and then lie about it
They have ruined our country and our rights.
I agree with every word in this column.
How blessed we are to have Mr. Murdock who continually tells it like it is.
In 1994, when Gingrich and Armey won big in both houses after they introduced the Contract with America, Gingrich asserted. “If you want to know what the Democrats are doing, watch what they accuse us of.”
J. Edgar Hoover in his book Masters of Deceit, which I read when when I was 11 at Mother’s request, shows this phenomenon. Communism, the new godless religion, is populated with adherents who are fanatics. They will do anything: lie, cheat, steal, even murder to neutralize or destroy any opponent. They plow their path to victory over ruined lives and human skulls. Today’s Demon-Crats sound an awful lot like them. And it appears that the FBI is turning into the KGB.
I was born and raised in the country a long time ago. I am a proud American, and I have voted in every election since I became eligible. What the Democrats are doing to this country is an absolute travesty. I’m glad I’m old and won’t have to witness the damage they are doing to our democracy. If you love America and you are a registered Democrat, I suggest you seriously consider changing your party affiliation.
Every democrat talks about threats to “our democracy”. The only real threat to our democracy is the communist party formerly known as the democrat party.
Three losers flexing their losing voices.
They’re charging people with sedition when in fact, they are the seditionists.
