Over 100 democracy scholars warned that the GOP is putting US democracy in mortal danger.

The scholars excoriated Republicans for rejecting the 2020 election results.

They also criticized GOP-led efforts across the country to restrict voting access.

See more stories on Insider's business page.

Republican efforts to restrict voting across the US are posing an existential threat to democracy in the US, over 100 scholars of democracy warned in a new statement released by the New America think tank on Tuesday.

"We, the undersigned, are scholars of democracy who have watched the recent deterioration of US elections and liberal democracy with growing alarm," the statement said. "Specifically, we have watched with deep concern as Republican-led state legislatures across the country have in recent months proposed or implemented what we consider radical changes to core electoral procedures in response to unproven and intentionally destructive allegations of a stolen election."

The scholars said that the GOP-led initiatives "are transforming several states into political systems that no longer meet the minimum conditions for free and fair elections”. :arrow: :arrow: :arrow:

Anybody (Bafidi especially) who thinks the Republican Party of Abraham Lincon is the same as the Republican Party of today is a total idiot. BTW Trump is also a total idiot because he boasted that he belongs to the same party as Abraham Lincon during the last election.

Why did the Democratic and Republican parties switch platforms Around 100 years ago?

Oh I see. No comment on the BLM loss of life.

Thats ok, and yet a civil disturbance event 100 years ago in the US, is meant to be some kind of holocaust.

And yet, the Turkish holocaust against millions of Armenians, Greeks, and Assyrians is unrecognized!

Quite!

Republicans have always been Mean Spirited and the Democrats Compassionate . Don’t ask me why, but that’s the way it is, and yet, there are so many who align themselves with the Mean Spirited Party. Go figure!


And yet...it was the Democrats who bought in slavery, and it was the Republican Yankees that abolished it. You do realize that it was the Republicans (Yankees) who fought the slavery Confederate States?

Go figure! :roll:

Time to equate yourself with the true meaning of Republicanism.


The slaves were mostly in the southern states which the Union fought against. The Union were those who believed slavery should end and fought those who wanted to keep slavery and those wanting breaking up the Union so that they can retain slavery. The American civil war was not between the Republicans and the Democrats. It was a war between brother against brother. Who are the southern states today? Who are the protectors of the Confederacy today. They are the Red states, the Republican states, who supported segregation in the southern states. The same states today who are trying to place “roadblocks” in the way of limiting free access for the minorities to vote. This is the Mean Spirited Republican Party of today.


Now why do the Southern States (old Confederacy) need to be treated different today? Slavery is long gone.

During the years of slavery. the GOP was most popular in the northern Yankee States. It wasn't popular in the Confederacy Slave States. that's because they opposed slavery.

Today, the GOP is popular in the Southern States because that's the bible belt. And today, Christians are more likel;y to vote GOP. Not just Christians mind you, but Muslims too. That's because of their conservative stance on social issues.

Rise of the Republican Party in the 1850s

The Republican Party was formed after the Kansas Nebraska Act in 1854. This Act allowed individual states to decide whether they would be a free or slave state. The party become very popular in the North. The policies that made them popular included:

1. supporting the Union and strong central government
2. being opposed to slavery spreading, especially into the new lands that were opening up in the West
3. supporting business and industry
4. supporting westward expansion but for free settlers, not settlers with slaves
5. supporting the building of a railway that would stretch across the continent. This would help westward expansion and help trade

So the corrupt MSM find 100 Democrat supporters to say that Trump is jeopardising American Democracy.

Yet, it's Trump and GOP supporters being deplatformed from social media by big tech.

Go figure! :roll:

I bet you Kikapu that if the MSM wanted to, they can find 1000 American Academics who would say that it is the Democrats and Big Tech who are jeopardising Democracy and Liberal values with their persecution and purge of Trump and high profile GOP pundits.

But they don't want to. It simply just doesn't suit the narrative. :roll:

A true Democrat and a true liberal, no matter what their political persuasion, will not agree with this purge and find it an affront to their Democratic and Liberal values.

That is because a true Democrat and a true Liberal recognises the fact that they will come for them next.

There would be many Democrat voters who would agree.

I see a lot of rhetoric and virtue signalling. A bit like placing a wreath at a war memorial in honour of fallen. Sure, it's a good thing, but a virtue signal all the same. At least when it's done by politicians. The vast majority of which have no clue.

Much harder to take action. Like for instance, offer health care. Offer every black American a job. Offer them all a future and education opportunities. Expensive too.

But that is the metric. A results driven approach. As such, we can only compare the amount of jobs created for Black Americans by Obama, Trump, or Biden (over the next 4 years). Who do you think delivered the best results?

Easy to lay a wreath too. Much harder to offer your time to help living vets with PTSD. That takes sacrifice and hard work.

That's why, the days of politicians who are all talk are numbered. It's easy to talk. Much harder to achieve.

We saw this in the Cyprus Election. 650 candidates. 648 who were all rhetoric. Too much talk. Too many cliches. Not enbough policy.

hence why, you have a growing vote for ELAM. A growing vote for other minor parties. Who are also full of talk and cliches too. But are also anti establishment and not part of the same old ruling elites/dynasties.

People are less fooled these days. People are looking for alternatives and something different. That's because the same old have been woeful failures. Dishonest cheats, and liars.

The POTUS is the President of the living. Not the President of the dead. Sure, by all means, remember. Remember the dead. It’s about respect. But don’t ignore the dead from the BLM debacle. Like Turkey ignores its genocides. That just undermines you.

Better still, just govern now for the living. In metrics that actually effect the lives of the living. Like make sure people have a chance. Black or white or whatever. Equal opportunity and fairness. What? Too hard?

Well obviously. So let’s remember 1921 instead. We all look good. Much easier!

The Tulsa race massacre took place on May 31 and June 1, 1921, when mobs of White residents, many of them deputized and given weapons by city officials, attacked Black residents and destroyed homes and businesses of the Greenwood District in Tulsa, Oklahoma, US. Alternatively known as the Tulsa race riot or the Black Wall Street massacre, the event is among "the single worst incidents of racial violence in American history". The attacks, carried out on the ground and from private aircraft, burned and destroyed more than 35 square blocks of the neighborhood – at the time the wealthiest Black community in the United States, known as "Black Wall Street".

More than 800 people were admitted to hospitals, and as many as 6,000 Black residents were interned in large facilities, many of them for several days. The Oklahoma Bureau of Vital Statistics officially recorded 36 dead. A 2001 state commission examination of events was able to confirm 39 dead, 26 Black and 13 White, based on contemporary autopsy reports, death certificates and other records. The commission gave several estimates ranging from 75 to 300 dead.

The massacre began during the Memorial Day weekend after 19-year-old Dick Rowland, a Black shoeshiner, was accused of assaulting Sarah Page, the 17-year-old White elevator operator of the nearby Drexel Building. He was taken into custody. After the arrest, rumors spread through the city that Rowland was to be lynched. Upon hearing reports that a mob of hundreds of White men had gathered around the jail where Rowland was being kept, a group of 75 Black men, some of whom were armed, arrived at the jail in order to ensure that Rowland would not be lynched. The sheriff persuaded the group to leave the jail, assuring them that he had the situation under control. A shot was fired, and then, according to the reports of the sheriff, "all hell broke loose." At the end of the exchange of fire, 12 people were dead, 10 White and 2 Black. As news of these deaths spread throughout the city, mob violence exploded. White rioters rampaged through the Black neighborhood that night and the next morning, killing men and burning and looting stores and homes. Around noon on June 1, the Oklahoma National Guard imposed martial law, ending the massacre.

About 10,000 Black people were left homeless and property damage amounted to more than $1.5 million in real estate and $750,000 in personal property (equivalent to $32.65 million in 2020). Many survivors left Tulsa, while Black and White residents who stayed in the city kept silent about the terror, violence and resulting losses for decades. The massacre was largely omitted from local, state and national histories.
