Embittered Democrats are taking another big step towards full blown Stalinism with calls for a tribunal modeled after the 9/11 Commission to probe Russian election meddling conspiracies. It is another sign that a very dangerous strain of totalitarianism is brewing on the left and a warning as to why Democrats should never be allowed to hold serious political power in this country again.
According to Reuters “Democrats want 9/11-style special commission to probe Russia”:
Democratic members of the U.S. Congress called on Monday for the creation of an independent commission to investigate Russia’s attempts to intervene in the 2016 election, similar to the Sept. 11 panel that probed the 2001 attacks on the United States.
Their “Protecting our Democracy Act” would create a 12-member, bipartisan independent panel to interview witnesses, obtain documents, issue subpoenas and receive public testimony to examine attempts by Moscow and any other entities to influence the election.
The panel members would not be members of Congress.
The legislation is one of many calls by lawmakers to look into Russian involvement in the contest, in which Republican Donald Trump defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton in the White House race, confounding opinion polls. Republicans also kept control of the Senate and House of Representatives by larger-than-expected margins.
“There is no question that Russia attacked us,” Senator Ben Cardin, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told a news conference.
While the commission is a serious long-shot given GOP control of Congress, the lunatic Dems have two crucial allies in the twin threats to national security John McCain and Lindsey Graham who are both foaming at the mouth for a war with Russia and the accompanying domestic crackdown on political dissent aka Trump supporters.
It is imperative that the creation of this panel be vehemently opposed by all Americans who value freedom. It will inevitably lead to special police squads tasked with rounding up Russian “collaborators” and a gulag of prisons to send them to – Comrade Stalin has bequeathed to Democrats a perfect model for the society that they desire.
This is a harrowing vision of the future if a party driven totally insane over Hillary Clinton’s loss ever gets its way.
