Politico: Could Trump Try to Cancel The Election?

Compare these two headlines:



Same propaganda organ -- Same day!

Yes, on the same day, Politico asserted that the authoritarian Trump might cancel the election and attempt to remain president without a vote, and also argued he was too much of a soyboy beta c**k to be the Authoritarian Gotham Needs.

The media is nothing but nonsense clickbait and outrage-farming. They are not serious, and they are unworthy.

I'm not linking the media any longer.

Here's some soft shit Politico crapped out:

Will a president with authoritarian tendencies actually try to suspend a constitutionally mandated presidential election?

That’s the question Americans asked in the spring and summer of 1970. At the end of the 1960s, a wave of violence--domestic terrorism, urban riots, assassinations and rising crime--set the public on edge. A presidential panel, decrying a national “crisis of violence,” found that 41,000 bombings or bomb threats had occurred in the U.S. in the preceding 15 months. Richard Nixon—whose abuses of presidential power would ultimately lead to his resignation—struck his critics as so heedless of democratic norms and the rules of fair play that he was capable of attempting almost anything.

After 2000 words stoking fears that Trump would seize power, the article admits he probably won't -- but he still might.

It is very unlikely that Trump could get away with postponing the November elections; who knows if he even wants to try. But as the Nixon example shows, that doesn't mean we won't all be talking about this as a live possibility as our crisis worsens. Presidents who make a show of flouting norms and arrogating power shouldn't be surprised when large portions of the population assumes that when the crunch comes, they’ll do more of the same.

"This conspiracy theory is probably untrue but that doesn't mean we shouldn't continue propagating it for maximum political value."

The same media that deplatforms competitors and critics for pushing alleged conspiracy theories and misinformation sure does rely on conspiracy theories and misinformation for their revenue.
