Tucker Explains Why Biden Has a Different Definition of ‘Democracy’ Than Us — And Why It’s Scary

On Wednesday, President Joe Biden made his latest attempt to make “democracy” a mid-term issue.

So far this ruse hasn’t worked. For a few weeks, government saber-rattling over “mega-MAGA Republicans” and the threat they posed to the American people got a bit of traction.

Then people realized that inflation, crime, the economy, and illegal immigration were still real things, and all the “threat-to-democracy” talk was dismissed as quickly as it was floated.

But this week, Biden used the attack on Paul Pelosi as a flimsy excuse to get the leftovers out and tried again, this time telling America that “democracy is on the ballot” and that we could only vote for Democrats if we were free wanted and fair elections in the future.

“I call on all Americans, regardless of party, to live this moment of national and generational importance,” Biden said. “We must vote, knowing that it is not just about current politics, but also about institutions that have held us together as we strive for a more perfect union. We must choose, knowing who we were and what we are about to become.”

Choose a party or we will become a one-party state. Solid rhetoric, that. But it wasn’t just the transparency of the president’s argument, Tucker Carlson told his audience Thursday night on Fox News. Instead, we should all be concerned about what Joe Biden thinks “democracy” is.

As he noted, even communist countries believe they are “democratic.” Just look at the name of arguably the most repressive nation in the world: The Democratically People’s Republic of Korea, better known as North Korea.

“In his very first speech as North Korea’s leader in 1946, Kim Il Sung described the total destruction of all opposition to his rule, the killing of his political opponents as ‘democratic reforms,'” Carlson noted. “Nearly 80 years later, his grandson Kim Jong Un continues to run North Korea as a ‘democracy.'”

Is “democracy on the ballot” this Tuesday?

Nor are they the only communist state to rightly believe so: “The Bolsheviks seized power in Russia in 1917 promising much more democracy,” Carlson continued. “The country they created, the Soviet Union, became the most oppressive police state in history. And yet, as you should know, it was a democracy. That’s what they called it. East Germany was also a democracy, as was North Vietnam, Ethiopia under Mengistu, Albania under the madman Enver Hoxha.”

“In the her version of democracy, all decisions are made by a shadowy oligarchy, usually led by a strongman,” Carlson said. “Elections are still happening, but it’s not about finding out what the population thinks or wants. It’s about giving an aura of legitimacy to the criminals already responsible.”

Biden is hardly Stalin, Hoxha or any of the Kims. Yet even if the leader is sleepier, more confused, and less repressive than a Soviet bloc ruler, the tactics are the same — when he’s constrained by the American system of democracy in which he can reach out, where “you can vote whoever you want because it is your government.”

That’s why, says Carlson, we should all be concerned about rhetoric like “democracy is on the ballot.”

“No, Joe Biden. The candidates’ names are on the ballot,” Carlson said.

“Democracy is not on the ballot because democracy is not determined by the outcome of an election, democracy is the election itself,” he continued. “Democracy is the process by which citizens choose how to be governed according to their own preferences.

“That’s your decision. It’s not yours, but Joe Biden is telling you otherwise and you should know that.”

“He’s telling you that the system itself is illegitimate if you don’t get a very specific result, the very result he’s telling you to do,” Carlson continued.

“We control the system. We have a moral right to control the system. So if we lose control of the system, the system itself can no longer exist.”

It’s not like Biden is the only one repeating that silly point. Barack Obama warned that voters might not see “democracy” as a “top priority,” but failure to vote for the good ones means dissenters are “imprisoned” or reporters are silenced.

For Big-D Democrats, therefore, America must be a one-party state to save Little-D democracy in the United States. Anything else and it is no longer a democracy.

“A rejection by the party of Joe Biden is, in their view, the end of the system itself, and they clearly believe that. They mean business,” Carlson said.

Just know that you don’t mean the word “democracy” the way your civics teacher did. When our American democratic system throws the bums out of power, Soviet-style sham democracy has lost.

That’s the “democracy” that’s on the ballot. Feel free to vote against, no matter how loud the Biden administration bangs. In fact, our system is from indeed Democracy depends on America rejecting it next Tuesday.
