Democrats’ ‘Sacred Cause’ Isn’t Democracy, It’s Power

January 10, 2024: While issuing remarks this past weekend at Valley Forge to commemorate the third anniversary of the Jan 6. Capitol kerfuffle, President Biden asked the public, “Is democracy still America’s sacred cause?”

It’s ironic, considering this question came moments after Biden went on about the sacrifices made by Gen. George Washington and the Continental Army, comparing himself to the nation’s first president and his Republican predecessor, former President Donald Trump, to a corrupt, power-obsessed King George III.

Set aside the heresy of our devout Catholic leader, the simple fact of the matter is that “democracy” never was, and still isn’t, “our sacred cause.” Of course, one could wax poetic about apples of gold and frames of silver to try to discern what “our sacred cause” might be, but that’s neither here nor there. The reality is that expansive appeals to national democracy have been made for decades to undermine local authority and consolidate power in an unaccountable bureaucratic managerial apparatus.

The bastardized quasi-democracy in which we currently find ourselves is the result of this. Sure, there are technically different branches of government that technically perform different functions, but at the federal level, the only thing that actually makes things happen is the bureaucracy. So now, the nation lives and dies at the outcome of a vote because the results determine just how much power will be relegated to the administrative apparatus and with how much impunity it will be allowed to operate. 

Ultimately, Democrats’ “sacred cause” is nothing less than their complete consolidation of institutional power.

This is, in large part, why political messaging has become so manic over the last decade and why stooges like Aaron Rupar uncritically amplified Biden’s faux-patriotic and onanistic attacks on Fox News.

“When the attack on Jan. 6 happened, there was no doubt about the truth. At the time, even Republican members of Congress and Fox News commentators publicly and privately condemned the attack. … Now those same people have changed their tune. … We’ll defend the truth,” an unusually lively, potentially stimulant-fueled Biden proclaimed while pledging to defend democracy.

It just so happens that effectively everything the public was told about Jan. 6 — much like the Russia hoax, the Hunter Biden laptop, and Biden’s involvement with his family’s overseas business dealings — was a lie parroted by tattletale accomplice media outlets like MSNBC and CNN. Dissent online to any of the regime’s preferred narratives regarding the above was summarily crushed by the fascistic joint efforts of Big Tech and the administrative apparatus. It wasn’t until Elon Musk acquired Twitter that Americans could once more speak somewhat freely about this en masse. 

Ignore how the intelligence apparatus worked to discredit the Hunter Biden laptop story and deliberately undermined Trump with bogus intel in the Russia-collusion conspiracy theory. Don’t worry about the disproportionate and dishonest response to Jan. 6. If you’re concerned about the administrative apparatus conspiring with Big Tech to suppress information, go touch grass.

What matters is “democracy.”

The left’s constant subversion and erosion of democratic norms don’t matter. Because “democracy” just means “power.” The former is a pleasant-sounding means to a gruesome end.
