Democrats used the pandemic as an excuse to change the manner of voting in 2020 — and to possibly steal the election.
Now, it’s being used to fundamentally change our society, our very beliefs, and traditions.
As President Trump was winding up what was arguably the most successful 4-year presidential term in American history, Democratic politicians latched onto the COVID-19 crisis as an excuse to enact universal mail-in voting.
Although they didn’t quite get what they wanted, a sufficient number of states promoted vote-by-mail that, when added to other irregularities, a significant number of voters lost confidence in the election results.
Now, they’re focused on using the pandemic to finish what the previous administration promised — to fundamentally transform the United States, as well as to answer the call of the Senate minority leader — to change the world.
The proposal was first advanced in July — just five days after our Independence Day — by German engineer and economist Klaus Schwab in his book, "COVID-19: The Great Reset."
He suggests that capitalism needs to be "reimagined," the distinction between the private and public sectors should be blurred, and the nations of the world should unite into a global government.
Schwab is best known as the director of the World Economic Forum, a Swiss-based organization committed to public-private cooperation.
We could dismiss "The Great Reset" as the ravings of a someone who's crazed, except that the idea is now being promoted by our neighbor to the north: Canada.
In an address delivered in late September, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau came right out and said that we should use the pandemic as an excuse to change the system into a socialist order.
"Right now we have to fix urgent problems, but in the long run we have t fix the system, so that it works for everyone," Trudeau told the other participants in a United Nations Conference.
"This pandemic has provided an opportunity for a reset," he added at about two minutes into his address. "This is our chance to accelerate our pre-pandemic efforts to reimagine economic systems that actually address global challenges like extreme poverty, inequality, and climate change."
It provided an "a-ha" moment for Rebel News owner and founder Ezra Levant.
"I thought this was supposed to be a conspiracy theory," he tweeted Sunday. "But here it is, straight from Trudeau’s mouth. The pandemic is the excuse for a 'Great Reset' of the world, led by the UN."
Four days after the election Sen. Chuck Schumer, the New York Democrat who serves as Senate minority leader, announced what was possible if they flip the Senate blue.
"Now we take Georgia," he said, referring to two Georgia U.S. Senate seats set for a January runoff election. "And then we change the world!"
Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, the former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States, warned President Trump in an open letter published Oct. 31 that the disease was being used by the left to attain power not seen in modern democracies.
"No one, up until last February, would ever have thought that, in all of our cities, citizens would be arrested simply for wanting to walk down the street, to breathe, to want to keep their business open, to want to go to church on Sunday. Yet now it is happening all over the world," he wrote.
"The fundamental rights of citizens and believers are denied in the name of a health emergency that is revealing itself more and more fully as instrumental to the establishment of an inhuman faceless tyranny."
We see examples of "inhuman faceless tyranny" exhibited nearly every day in response to the pandemic.
In a page ripped straight out of the "Newspeak" in George Orwell’s "1984," the City of Las Vegas announced Friday that it sent out an army of 100 "compliance ambassadors" to "educate" everyone holding business licenses and to assess whether they’re in compliance with state and local lockdown orders.
And the tyranny is interfering with American tradition.
Dr. Anthony Fauci confirmed to CNN Sunday that not only would Thanksgiving be out, but that "Christmas is probably not going to be possible."
Democratically-controlled states like California, Michigan and New York responded by issuing holiday celebration restrictions. But while the politicians enacted order-after-order, a growing number of New York county sheriffs became holiday heroes.
They won’t comply with Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s tyrannical Thanksgiving Day restrictions.
Archbishop Viganò’s warning to the president should be taken seriously by everyone, lest we go to sleep one night in the United States, and wake up the following morning in "Amerika."
As for me, they can pry my turkey out of my cold, dead oven mitts.
