"Hell, we're NOT a democracy. Get over it!" . . . Please come CAPTION Fox's Pete Hegseth!!!



Pete Hegseth is saying: "America's a republic, not a democracy, so all of this consternation about votes and election deniers is beside the point. Voting is like a opioid; it makes Democrats feel good as they go about stealing the country. But we're really a republic which means right thinking Republicans can simply take it back when they want. . . . And that time is now!"






*******************************************************

Above CAPTION satirizes Hegseth's diatribe against democracy this morning. I heard Tucker do the same several weeks ago. Is there a pattern? You bet. They are minimizing the import of the vote because they know Republicans will have to cast aside and steal elections in the future.

1. Harvard...Schmarvard

I just was watching the Fox n Friends weekend. Pete here nailed his Harvard degree back to Harvard. This lead to 15 minutes on the peril of the horrors of education.

2. Open threats that can be backtracked as "misquoted". They are such cowards.

If you are proposing a full blown civil war against Democracy, just fucking say so you GD COWARD.

3. What do they think "republic" means?

I guess they think it means "what Republicans get to control."

I noticed a few years ago, they started saying we weren't a democracy after all, that the US was this completely opposite thing they called "republic".

And now they've decided it means a Trump dictatorship.

4. Yes. We must watch these trends.

Now they are trashing the idea of democracy in order to undercut the vote.

5. Republic means what?

I wish they could clarify that? What parts of the Constitution do they no longer support? Majority rule?

6. The oligarchs and GOP no longer want a democracy.

Democracy stands in the way of their desire for permanent power and wealth.

They want what Putin has.

8. Yes. Putin pulled off the crime of the century in the US.

Putin for decades has been working on destroying the US, bringing chaos, division, and ending democracy.

9. The Imperial Senate will no longer be of any concern to us.

I've just received word that the Emperor has dissolved the council permanently. The last remnants of the Old Republic have been swept away.

10. My response to a maga that said that.

There are only 2 types of Republics. 1. Democratic Republics and 2. Banana Republics.
Left him speechless.

11. A longtime repub meme that is now being used to end democracy

Cons have been using the trope of it's a republic not a democracy to justify things like the electoral college and top down rule. Now they're using it to end voting and the small d democratic model we have had for the past 60 years or so.
