Imagine what would happen in the media if President Trump or a prominent conservative or Christian suggested that there be no presidential debate or that whatever the outcome of the presidential election, it would not be accepted. Just the suggestion that President Trump would wait and see how the election vote unfolded has once again prompted the media to serve up images of Hitler, fascism and tyranny. But remember in 2016 when Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton made a big deal of Trump potentially not accepting the results of the election, then when she lost, she sued to contest the election? Accuse others of what you are thinking or doing—that’s the socialist doctrine. And it’s repeating.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) essentially got a pass from the media when she suggested there be no presidential debates. At an August 27 news conference, Pelosi said, “I don’t think that there should be any debates. I wouldn’t legitimize a conversation with him [Trump], nor a debate in terms of the presidency of the United States…So I think that he’ll probably act in a way that is beneath the dignity of the presidency; he does that every day. But I think it will also belittle what the debates are supposed to be about. And they’re not to be about skullduggery on the part of somebody who has no respect for the office he holds, much less the democratic process.” This is in alignment with socialist doctrine of suppressing free speech if it doesn’t agree with you. Accuse others of what you are thinking or doing.
On August 24, failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who accused Trump of intentions to not accept the results of the 2016 election if he lost, advised leftist Democratic Party presidential candidate Joe Biden not to concede the election. Clinton speaking on Showtime’s “The Circus,” said, “Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances. Because I think this is going to drag out, and eventually, I do believe he [Biden] will win, if we don’t give an inch and if we are as focused and relentless as the other side is.” Clinton claimed that Trump was trying to use vote by mail to steal the election and vowed: “We’ve got to have a massive legal operation. And I know the Biden campaign is working on that.” Again, accuse others of what you are thinking or doing.
This hypocrisy goes largely unreported by the media. Instead of pointing out the intent to suppress free speech, the media just allows statements to stand about ending the traditional American political exercise of presidential debates. Instead of demanding an explanation about usurping the Constitutionally-mandated transition of presidential power, the media allows to stand a veiled threat of government overthrow. This is irresponsible. It is also the highest level of hypocrisy demonstrated by political leaders. Romans 2:1 says, “Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whoever you are who judge, for in whatever you judge another you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things.” Of course, they may justify accusing others of what they are doing is “Biblical.” They who call evil good and good evil. And they do.
