Former President Donald Trump is currently facing legal challenges in Colorado and Maine to remove his name from the Republican primary ballot. The cases are expected to reach the Supreme Court and Trump’s legal team is confident that the decisions will be overturned. However, it seems that he won’t be the only one facing such challenges as Democrats across the country are seeking to have other Republicans removed from the ballot.
The most recent example comes from Pennsylvania where a Democrat has filed a challenge to remove Congressman Scott Perry’s name from the ballot. But this is not an isolated case as similar challenges have been filed in various states. Democrats seem to be using the argument of ‘insurrection’ to try and disqualify their opponents from the election. This tactic has been used before by Cori Bush, who authored a bill seeking to remove numerous Republicans from the ballot.
One would think that such tactics would be met with outrage and condemnation, but they seem to be gaining support within the Democratic party. Gene Stilp, who has gained notoriety by burning MAGA flags with swastikas outside courthouses, filed the challenge against Scott Perry. And it’s not just limited to federal races, as a state senator in Pennsylvania has also filed an ethics complaint against Republican state senator Doug Mastriano.
The hypocrisy of the Democratic party is evident in this situation. While they accuse Republicans of being ‘election deniers’, they have a history of questioning the legitimacy of elections. Congressman Jamie Raskin, who is leading the charge to have Trump removed from the ballot, sought to block the certification of the 2016 election, citing Russian interference.

The Democrats’ desperation can be attributed to the fact that Joe Biden’s policies have been a disaster and his approval ratings are plummeting. They fear that his unpopularity could lead to a complete wipeout for their party in the next election. While the Republicans refuse to simply disappear, their opponents are trying to make them disappear from the ballot. It’s an extreme tactic, but not surprising in today’s political climate.
It’s alarming to see the number of Democrats, including members of the ‘Squad’, who support such tactics. The party is willing to go to extreme lengths to ensure their candidates run unopposed. The fact that they are using the argument of ‘insurrection’ to justify their actions is even more concerning. None of the targeted Republicans have been charged with insurrection, let alone convicted of it.

Democrats are using lawfare to chip away at the GOP’s 1 seat majority so Dems can take back control of the House before the 2024 election, and push for contingent election. https://t.co/80B6Jt8kEN

It is disheartening to see the tactics being used by the Democratic party to attempt to secure victory in the upcoming elections. Instead of engaging in fair and open debates, they are resorting to underhanded and undemocratic methods. It remains to be seen how successful these challenges will be, but one thing is clear – the political landscape in America has become increasingly divisive and extreme.
