Maine Secretary Of State Insanely Claims She Is A "Defender Of Democracy" By Booting Trump Off Ballot
“Democracy is Sacred,” according to the Secretary of State’s conclusion on why people should not be allowed to cast their ballots for Trump.
How sacred, you ask?
Well, it is this sacred:
I guess democracy is so sacred she is out there defending it. Just not sacred enough to be de facto Democratic. You know, she means in the North Korean kind of way. That form of Democracy.
Alright, so why did the left-wing Secretary of State from Maine decide that the leading Republican presidential candidate must be kicked off the primary ballot, you ask?
“Maine's Democratic secretary of state on Thursday disqualified former President Trump from the state's presidential primary ballot.
In her ruling, Secretary of State Shenna Bellows cited Section 3 of the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution which bans from office those who ‘engaged in insurrection.’
Bellows made the ruling after some state residents, including a bipartisan group of former lawmakers, challenged Trump's position on the ballot.
Trump's lawyers requested Bellows disqualify herself over tweets that they believed showed bias. In the tweets, Bellows, a lawyer and former executive director of the ACLU, called the U.S. Capitol attack an ‘insurrection’ and bemoaned that Trump wasn't convicted by the U.S. Senate after being impeached by the U.S. House.”
She wants to cite amendments that are in the constitution, that arguably don’t even apply to a president, as her justification for “defending” democracy. Even if it could apply to a sitting president, which it very likely does not, that would have to be if he was convicted of insurrection. Which he has yet to even be charged with.
Now, had this woke joke of Secretary had at least a fraction of her brain, she would know of this little thing called the “Fifth Amendment.” And I quote: “The presumption of innocence is recognized as a due process right”
But all that is only the beginning of the insanity. That does not even touch the surface.
According to the text of the decision that was published by The Washington Post:
"In the second challenge, Attorney Paul Gordon, a registered voter of Portland, argued that because Mr. Trump has expressly stated that he won the 2020 election, he is barred from office under the Twenty-Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which sets a two-term limit on Presidents."
Yes, one of the challenges said this would be Trump's third term even though Biden is currently the sitting president. These are the hoops they are jumping through to try and justify all of this. This is how logical it all gets.
But the most irritating part about all of this is that this just enables progressive voters to further justify their cognitive dissonance. Democrat voters won't read the decision. They won't see the insanity of the text. All they will see is MSNBC using this as "evidence" for more lies that Trump is a dictator.
But can the left at least admit that if Trump is a dictator, he has got to be hands down the worst authoritarian official who has ever come into power? I mean usually, it is the dictator who goes after his political opponents. This has got to be the first time in history the defenders of democracy have done it.
It truly is a PR move, at best.
Shenna, can't we just let the people decide? Isn't that what is best?
Can we please restore some civility? Is that so hard to do?
Oh Shenna, how easy it is for you to eat your own words.
Just like the Colorado case meant nothing, so does this.
