Dale Jackson: No one really believes Mo Brooks’ election challenge is ‘sedition’
Apparently, in 2021, we have decided that everyone we disagree with is a monster attempting to subvert America’s promise for their own political gain.
In the last 24 hours alone, we have seen the governor of Georgia, the secretary of state of Georgia and anyone else who is not convinced massive fraud occurred in the 2020 presidential election called tools of the Chinese.
On the other hand, we have also seen the word “sedition” tossed around by both irrelevant pundits who can’t even get their Auburn coaching scoops right and CNN anchors like Jake Tapper.
Quite a contrast from his protege Kevin McCarthy who has given these potentially seditious efforts the green light. If McCarthy were Speaker right now the US would be in the middle of a much more grave Constitutional crisis. https://t.co/wh4rpjd12C

Tapper’s cowardice here is amazing. Calling something “potentially seditious” is not a thing. It is akin to calling him a “potential child molester.” Sure, both things are possible, but the charge is so serious it shouldn’t be leveled recklessly.
Of course, the media and their Democrats would have us just ignore the entire 2015-2020 period of American history where anyone to the right of U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) was suspected of being a Russian asset; the people now screaming for immediate acceptance of all things electoral declared Trump illegitimate from the day he won the election and never stopped.
The idea that our system can’t survive this is laughable.
In fact, the system is built for just this.
We saw it as recently as the aftermath of the 2016 election:

The above examples are all from years when Republicans won.
Were these people, Democrats, called seditious? No.
Did they carry this mark with them forever? No.
Did anyone worry about the fabric of America being torn apart? Of course not.
They had their say, the House and Senate had their say, and the nation moved on.
With President Donald Trump gone, however, these same people will move to remove anyone who supported him.
Weak-minded journalists will now use this moment to attempt to tar them for years.
Did that happen to U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) or U.S. Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA)? Of course not.
Did we ever hear about their challenges? Of course not.
If Democrats lose, America is the worst, and it’s a treasonous conspiracy involving all types of voter fraud, suppression and treachery.
If Democrats win, America is the best and fraud doesn’t exist. To allege otherwise is “sedition.”
Knowing this, what Congressman Mo Brooks (R-AL) is doing right now is pretty brave.
He is using the available tools to raise awareness of issues that many Americans see as problems. He knows the election will not be overturned and has said so repeatedly.
He will not be cowed by a vicious and stupid mainstream media.
But the American media’s lying, hypocrisy and dishonesty will never cease.
When U.S. Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) pointed all of this bad behavior by the media and their Democrats out to MSNBC’s Chuck Todd, Todd had a complete breakdown on national television declaring any questioning of his behavior, and that of his colleagues, to be a conspiracy theory.
It’s hard to watch, but it is a serious issue.
They are so fixated on pushing an agenda, they don’t even care about honesty anymore.
This is the real threat to America: an American media so biased they can’t even understand why people don’t trust them.
