It’s insane to me how liberals have the gall to talk about ‘attacks on democracy.’
These are the same people who tried to unseat a duly elected President of The United States for the entirety of the four years he was in office.
Virtually every single deep-state ploy to keep Trump out of office or attack Trump is universally supported by these people without them even realizing that they are the ones subverting democracy because the television told them it was okay.
The cognitive dissonance is strong in these people, to say the least—perhaps this is why they come off as completely insane almost all of the time.
Time is said to heal all wounds, TDS seems to be an exception to this truism. Leftists across several states are now spearheading efforts to remove President Trump from the ballot.
The latest state to join those efforts was Minnesota, where a faction of leftists is attempting to prevent the former President from appearing on the ballot—you know, to protect ‘democracy.’
Star Tribune reports: “Led by former Secretary of State Joan Growe and former Supreme Court Justice Paul H. Anderson, prominent Minnesota voters filed a petition to keep former President Donald Trump off the 2024 ballot because of his role in the insurrection on Jan. 6, 2021.”

According to The Associated Press:
The petition, filed with the Minnesota Supreme Court, argues that Trump is disqualified from public office under the rarely used “insurrection clause” of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
Harrison Krank points out: “Petition was filed to remove Trump from 2024 Minnesota Ballot under the “insurrection Clause.” Trump was never charged or convicted of insurrection.”

The Epoch Times presented this statement from Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon:
“Well, this is an eligibility question. It’s an eligibility argument that he is constitutionally ineligible because of the 14th Amendment language that you summarized.
The problem is that the Office of Secretary of State in Minnesota is not the eligibility police.”
A lot of people are surprised to know that, but we are not in a position legally, we don’t have the authority legally to make eligibility determinations of any kind, whether that’s residents, whether that’s age, or something else like this.”
