Well, as photog declared earlier this week on his blog Orion’s Cold Fire, we’re officially “a banana republic.” The FBI raided President Trump’s home at Mar-a-Lago… for what? Some documents? Apparently, the President had already turned over some documents to the National Archives. Since when does the National Archives get to send a domestic police force into the homes of former presidents to get McDonald’s receipts?
Just like the arrest of Roger Stone and the ginned up January 6th Committee hearings, we on the Right have always understood that actors on the Left enjoy a different, more lenient standard of justice than those of us on the Right. In the pre-Trump world, there was at least some pretext of blind justice, with the progressives getting a wink and a nod for their malfeasance, with a conservative offered up sacrificially from time to time to appease the mob.
Now entire federal agencies—indeed, the vast majority of the federal government—are beholden to the Left. The apparatus of the state is no longer a mostly-impartial arbiter and guarantor of justice; instead, it’s now the personal army and political secret police of the Democratic Party.
Why? Because “Orange Man Bad.”
