The allegedly “moderate” leader of the Blue Dog Caucus in the U.S. House has demanded that Americans accept her narrative about the 2016 elections…. or else.
By Jacob Engels
Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy has never had much respect for the thoughts of common men or women. She is extremely wealthy and has treated her congressional office as some sort of royal position that allows her to increasingly tyrannical decrees. During campaign season she pretends to be a hardworking mother with a simple life, a facade that is quickly abandoned for high dollar fundraisers and the pomp of DC-life once she is re-elected.
She has barred journalists from events and used local law enforcement officers as her political muscle to enforce those unconstitutional bans, routinely referring to falsified “security assessments” from Capitol Police to justify her actions. If you do not agree with her politically or stand in the way of her ascendancy up the political ladder, Stephanie Murphy will pretty much do or say anything to neutralize you. She even held a fundraiser with Nancy Pelosi as Hurricane Irma ravaged her Central Florida area district in 2017. Murphy was feasting on shrimp cocktail as thousands went without electricity and running water.
A consistently cunning politician, she continues to frame her political outlook as “moderate” and uses her leadership of the Blue Dog Caucus in the United States House as evidence that she isn’t another cog in the progressive machine. Her voting record says otherwise, as Murphy votes with Nancy Pelosi and her hardline progressive Democrats 99% of the time. When it suits her, she claims she is against impeachment and when she is in front of a different crowd she claims she is for it.
Her latest statements in front of a Stanford University Digital Policy Incubator forum on election security give voters in Florida’s 7th congressional district another reason to be weary of pulling the lever again for Murphy as she campaigns for a third consecutive term in 2020. First reported by Florida Politics, Murphy declared that Republican voters must accept the false narrative of a “Russian hack on our elections” or else. What is the “or else” in this scenario?
According to Supreme Leader Murphy… errr Congresswoman Murphy… if Republicans do not accept the debunked Russiagate conspiracy theory that Robert Mueller failed to substantiate, then our elections will not be secure going into 2020. By accepting that narrative, Republicans would have to adopt further censorship of differing political thought on major digital platforms like Facebook and Twitter, efforts that have crippled some of President Trump’s most vocal supporters. They’d have to accept the illegal spying on President Trump’s campaign and close associates. They’d have to accept the prosecutions of Trump’s top allies.
In Murphy’s perfect world, Republicans would sign their own death warrant. They would contribute to their own censorship online, accept illegal spying and prosecutions of individuals for daring to support Trump over Hillary Clinton. It’s a win-win-win for Murphy and the Democrats.
Not only is this demand concerning and ridiculous for the above reasons, but for the fact that Congresswoman Murphy is engaging in the most base of fearmongering with these statements. She is demanding you submit to her thought process or elections will not be secure in 2020. She claims your refusal to adopt her opinion on the 2016 elections is a “national security threat.”
Anthony Sabatini, a Central Florida based State Representative, called Murphy’s recent performance “the real national security threat.”
“Liberal Stephanie Murphy and her radical party want to re-litigate 2016 ad infinitum, continuing to stand in President Trump’s way as he drains the swamp.”
If you are a sane human being that lives in Florida’s 7th congressional district, please consider how you will embolden Murphy by granting her another term in 2020. What happens when citizens don’t comply with her demands to control your thoughts? Is she going to take punitive action for wrongthink?
After what we have seen with the censorship and deplatforming efforts of big tech, Democrats like Murphy have proven that they will attack our constitutionally protected free speech rights in favor of forced group think and a social credit system.
