Washington Post Article About Voter Fraud

 8/22/20 Washington Post has a long and interesting article about a largescale attempt to throw the 1864 election to the Democratic candidate George McClellan by mail-in voter fraud.  Reading the comments by WP readers is a riot.  They attempt to shift blame for this to conservatives, and seem unaware that McClellan was a Democrat.  They also portray Trump as a tyrant for being concerned about voter fraud.  The level of self-delusion never ceases to amaze me.

  1. More and more and more, I think this quote from Theodore Dalrymple is the single most enlightening comment on the Democrat response to everything:

    "the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is in some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control."

    It's not stupidity, it's not ignorance, it's not mistake.

    It's coercion and bullying. It's the assertion that telling the truth is more dangerous than ignoring reality. It is, as I've been saying a lot recently, "2 + 2 = shut up proles and think what you're told."
