CNN – It’s a Conspiracy Theory to Say That America is a Republic and Not a Democracy

Link to article…

The United States of America is a constitutional republic, but don’t say that to anyone at CNN or they might label you a conspiracy theorist.

The far left network recently did an entire segment about the fact that Trump supporters and other people on the right insist (correctly) that we are not a democracy.

The left has repeated their canned line about ‘our democracy’ so many times that CNN is now trying to rewrite history to suit the Democrat party.

Link to video on X…

With President Biden arguing that former President Donald Trump is a threat to democracy, CNN’s Donie O’Sullivan decided it would be a good idea to try to help make that case. On Friday’s CNN News Central, O’Sullivan was seen on the road with Trump voters, where he was aghast at the idea that they view America as a republic, not a democracy.

In one clip, O’Sullivan was speaking to a couple when he declared, “Obviously, there’s a lot of criticisms of Trump that he is bad for democracy. That he’s bad for American democracy.”

A woman interrupted him to assert, “Can I say something? We are a republic. We’re not a democracy,” while a man echoed her sentiment, “We are a republic. We’re a representative republic. We’re not a democracy.”

The talking point "America is a republic, not a republic" is the height of NPC idiocy.

We are a democracy and a republic.

Ask anyone of these people to point in the US Constitution or Declaration of Independence how many times the word “democracy “ can be found.




Of course, the answer to that is zero.

The founders left it out because they specifically did not want a democracy. Because they knew that would mean mob rule.

Correct.

Now, the histrionics relating to attacking our democracy are clearly overblown partisan talking points, but, if you understand what a republic is, and what democracy is, it's clear that you can remove the democracy part of our government while maintaining the republic. That is what the (histrionic, emotional, and partisan) talking point is saying.

The founders specifically were against people voting?

Irrelevant

Democracy denotes a system of citizens voting.

Did our Founders set up a Constitution where citizens voting was a part of that system? If the answer is yes, then we are a democracy.
