Washington Post: Better Vote for Biden or Else

Perhaps it’s because they’re afraid that the persistent rioting might sway the election to President Trump. But the Washington Post has published an opinion piece which in essence threatens voters to vote for Joe Biden. They assert that if Trump loses, he will not concede the election. And all hell will break lose.

So if the rioting, burning, looting, shootings, and general mayhem are making you edgy, then you’d better vote for Joe. Otherwise you’ll get more of the same.

In a piece entitled “What’s the worst that could happen?” author Rosa Brooks predicts that the election “will likely spark violence — and a constitutional crisis.” But there’s one way to avoid that, she advises.

Make sure Joe Biden wins in a landslide.

Brooks and colleagues from something called the “Transition Integrity Project” assembled several scenarios — war games, if you will — of the what post-Election Day America will look like. They include the following:

  • A narrow Biden win;
  • A big Biden win;
  • Trump win in Electoral College only;
  • Uncertainty à la the 2000 election fiasco.

But only if Biden wins bigly will there be a chance of peace returning to the nation, maintains Brooks:

“A landslide for Joe Biden resulted in a relatively orderly transfer of power. Every other scenario we looked at involved street-level violence and political crisis.”

That’s because Trump will refuse to concede, of course, ushering in an American Apocalypse.

First, Trump will tweet stuff like “MILLIONS of illegal ALIENS and DEAD PEOPLE” have voted. Then his supporters will take to social media accusing the “Deep State” of stealing the election while Fox and OAN networks concur. Attorney General Bill Barr will also get into the act by launching an investigation into mail fraud and links between the Democratic Party and Antifa (yes, really). Plus, Trump supporters will dox Biden electors in swing states, accusing them of connections with George Soros.

And that’s before the violence erupts as Biden voters take to the streets — protesting peacefully, of course. Meanwhile, Trump will use Twitter to call out his goon supporters to break the heads of peaceful Biden protesters. Finally, after the carnage continues unabated, Trump will invoke the Insurrection Act and send in military troops to “Teach these ANTI-AMERICAN TERRORISTS A LESSON.”

And it’s not even Thanksgiving yet! wails the Washington Post. 

But that’s just one scenario. All the others look calamitous as well.

The Washington Post, however, aren’t the only media to predict chaos, violence, and troops in the streets should Trump lose. A little over a month ago CNN served up their own doom-and-gloom prophecy. That was precipitated by Trump wondering aloud to Chris Wallace if the pandemic might delay the election.

OMG! Panic!

So CNN called up retired Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, former Chief of Staff to Colin Powell, to look into his crystal ball. Wilkerson also set up his war game strategies.

But this is CNN, and Wilkerson is no fan of President Trump, having compared him to the “mafia.”

As for the “Transition Integrity Project” — it’s equally sketchy. First of all, author Rosa Brooks, a Georgetown University law professor, is a co-founder of this group that may be linked to none other than George Soros. Plus, Brooks used former RNC chairman Michael Steele and Bill Kristol as the GOP “players” in her war game scenarios, which is laughable. Not only did Kristol co-found the anti-Trump “Lincoln Project,” but Steele is a proud card-carrying member of that group, too. In fact, he recently joined the NeverTrump group as a Senior Adviser. As for Kristol, he announced in February that “we are all Democrats now.”

Some GOP “players” those two are.

As far as the dire threats of the military prowling the streets of American cities on Trump’s command — fuggedaboutit. Kurt Schlichter, another retired Army colonel as well as attorney, pooh-poohs such nonsense. Schlichter himself participated with the California National Guard during the Los Angeles riots, so he knows a thing or two about urban violence. Truth is: you can’t expect to get anything done in non-cooperative Democrat areas. They will not assist troops in any way. As Schlichter writes:

“Bottom Line: All in all, sending military forces into a non-permissive environment in a blue city is a recipe for disaster.”

As far as the National Guard seizing ballots — which is another one of the WaPo’s scenarios — that cannot happen. Period, end of story. Even if Trump were to declare ballots to be fraudulent, soldiers have no legal authority to destroy them. What’s more, under the US Code of Military Justice, if a soldier chooses to follow an unlawful order he can face criminal penalties.

This conspiratorial dreck of the Washington Post and the Transition Integrity Project are nothing more than paranoid fantasies of liberals who are afraid of another four years of Trump. They know that Joe Biden is a weak candidate. They also know that the party has nothing to offer middle class traditional Americans. So now they’re using scare tactics to intimidate voters into casting their lot with Biden. Otherwise the chaos will continue.

Nice country ya got here. Be a shame if somethin’ was to happen to it.

  • Joe R. says:

    President Donald J. Trump is going to crush the election in 2020. There will not have been, and there will not be another election trouncing like the one Trump is going to give Joe Hiden this November.

    Trouble is, Trump’s massive win, giving him the mandate to crush all enemies, foreign and domestic, will not begin to assuage Conservatives who have too long put up with the P O S (D), and who have too long been asked “to be bigger” just because they are.

    No, nothing and no part of the 2020 election is going to begin to pay the current bu ll sh it tab run up by the satanic-communist (D), and that tab is still running (and accruing interest).

    Conservatives also know, the (D) work for satan, so they can’t change their stripes. And since the next iteration of the RED / BLUE voting map is due out in a few months, maybe their master will assist them in finding a different place in the Solar System to hide on November 5, or as Conservatives will like to call it, “No More (D)-Day”.

    Gird your loins.

    ” “MILLIONS of illegal ALIENS and DEAD PEOPLE” have voted. Then his supporters will take to social media accusing the “Deep State” of stealing the election” .. That’s exactly how obama got a second term, and I don’t recall any violence in the streets (maybe there should have been, considering the damage that the JEF did to our country.

  • NTSOG says:

    “So if the rioting, burning, looting, shootings, and general mayhem are making you edgy, then you’d better vote for Joe. Otherwise you’ll get more of the same.”

    Is that a threat or a promise from the Democrats? Either way it sounds like a very good reason to vote for Trump.

  • wozzup says:

    “Washington Post: Better Vote for Biden or Else”
    What the mobs and the Dems are actually saying is “Vote for our candidate OR ELSE. If you don’t we will find you and we are coming after you.”
    My answer is: “Thanks for the warning. When you get here don’t forget to say hello to my little friend.”
    NOTHING makes me more implacably resolute than an enemy making threats and declaring his intention to see that they are carried out. Of course if Dem lawmakers are in power they will not just say “Resistance is futile”, It will instead be a case of “Resistance is illegal”. Just ask Kyle Rittenhouse.

  • Fen says:

    “Trump win in Electoral College only”

    …because that’s how the Election is won.

    What she writes is a stupid as saying it would be bad if the Superbowl winner was by determined ONLY by who scored the most points.

    Once more, for slow Democrats: if the popular vote mattered, both campaigns would have completely differently strategies and would spend their time money and energy in completely different ways. So whatever the pop vote total is that you see on election day, I promise you those totals would be COMPLETELY DIFFERENT is the popular vote actually determined the outcome. Your argument is for Sore Losermans, like Gore/Lieberman of 2000.

    I am constantly amazed that that so many in elected positions believe themselves charmed from any of the nastiness they wish to inflict on the rest of the us. If widespread pre or post election BLM/ ANTIFA violence –looting and riots— occurs, the object of “our” response will not be directed toward Lenin’s useful idiots in the street..they are simply expendable pawns.
    Rather a two tired approach will be unleashed. First those that are in actual positions of power -local, state and federal who actively support the street thugs will be….um…dealt with. The idea that they can politically profit from the chaos they unleash and still hold power is simply childish and naive.
    The second tier are those who fund the and organize the chaos. The interlocking board members and board chairmen of the Tides Foundation,, the Ford Foundation, Soros’s Open Society and such. There are around 850 “suits” who sit above the fray and fund the violence. Their names are and addresses are well know and circulated widely. Some are public figures, some are not. They too will be……dealt with.
    When a rattlesnake comes into your yard, use a .410 shotgun and shoot the snake in the head….don’t aim at the rattle.
