Currently, posting a YouTube video questioning the results of the 2020 U.S. presidential election is an easy way to get yourself banned not only from that platform — but every other social media site as well. Apparently, this approach doesn’t go nearly far enough for many radicalized Americans.
If what the video below shows is any indication, progressive Americans want nothing less than to see their neighbors jailed for the high crime of disagreeing with them.
This is a culture that cannot survive.
Recently, conservative YouTuber Mark Dice held a little experiment to see if random pedestrians would sign a petition that would mandate the arrest of anyone who believes that former President Donald Trump was the rightful winner of the 2020 election, and that Joe Biden stole the win from him.
To be clear, we’re not talking about pundits making wild claims on social media. We’re not even talking about ordinary social media users posting inflammatory Facebook statuses. We’re talking about people having conservations in the privacy of their own homes.
It’s heartbreaking to see how many people don’t even question what Dice is handing them. In many instances, you see people walking by and actually stopping and begging to add their own signature. Apparently, no one in this video has heard of Mark Dice or his channel. It’s reasonable to assume that these interactions would have ended very poorly if they had.
We’re not even going to get into the intricacies of the wildly mishandled election in question. Even if we take the official results at face value, there are certainly questions worth asking. After all, this election was largely decided by mail-in votes — many of which would have been discarded during a normal election year without a pandemic.
The fact is that Americans have the right to be wrong. They have the right to make wild claims so long as they don’t advocate for violence against an individual — or cause commercial harm. There was a time when a broad spectrum of Americans understood this. That time has long since passed. We’re now living in a country where a political faction (which has the favor of every form of media) openly advocates for jailing its opponents.
Here’s the full clip.
