‘Visible deterioration’ in US civil liberties began in at least 2019, says international thinktank

 

Quote

The US has been added to an annual list of "backsliding" democracies for the first time, the International IDEA thinktank has said, pointing to a "visible deterioration" it said began in 2019.

 

Quote

"This year we coded the United States as backsliding for the first time, but our data suggest that the backsliding episode began at least in 2019," it said in its report.

I told ya’ll if you elect Biden and let him cram down his socialist agenda this would happen. Less than a year later and the world acknowledges for the first time in our history that our democracy is slipping. Mandatory medical procedures, home imprisonment, and  rampant election fraud. Welcome to Biden’s America.

I wish democrats were 1/4 as cool as republicans think they are.

2016 forward seems surreal to me. America isn't really America anymore. We are fake. No one should take us seriously. I certainly don't, not when so many of our citizens don't believe in our election results. This is someone's fan fiction of an empire in decline, but it's happening.

 

2016 was merely the most expressive symptom of the rot that started in 2000.  Hell, I'd say that rot even started far before that.

For a not-insignificant segment of our population, it never was.

 

For them, America stopped being fully America right around April of 1865, amirite?
