While We’re Playing the Blame Game in Georgia, Let’s Not Forget the ‘Boycott’ Crowd

It appears that the Georgia Senate runoff elections did not go the way conservatives wanted. Rev. Raphael Warnock seems to have defeated Sen. Kelly Loeffler. While the race between David Perdue and Jon Ossoff has still not been called, the Democrats will likely win that seat as well. If so, it means that the Democratic Party has scored a significant victory, and former Vice President Joe Biden will have a much easier time enacting his agenda when he takes office.

But it is not only the Democrats that got what they wanted out of this race. RedState’s Bonchie noted that there is plenty of blame to go around when it comes to the result of the Senate elections. But we must not forget those who used their platforms to persuade Republican voters in Georgia to boycott the election so that the Democrats would take control of the Senate.

People like attorneys Lin Wood and Sidney Powell, along with right-wing activist Ali Alexander and several others put on a campaign to convince Republican voters that their votes wouldn’t count because of the outcome of the presidential election. They told members of their audience to stay home to punish the GOP and ensure that the Democrats would hold the presidency and the legislature. But in so doing, they have punished the entire nation.

The idea was flawed from the start. If these people truly believed that GOP lawmakers like Loeffler and Perdue weren’t doing enough to fight for Trump, helping the Democrats was not the answer. It is the ultimate example of cutting off one’s nose to spite their face. There is absolutely nothing positive that could come out of this move.

As some of you might already know, Biden has an agenda, and it’s not good for those who appreciate liberty. If you’re the type who vigorously supports the 2nd Amendment, you can thank the “boycott” crowd if he manages to enact his anti-gun agenda, which includes banning “assault” weapons and high-capacity magazines.

Under his plan, no more firearms that fall into the Democrats’ arbitrary category of “assault” weapons would be manufactured or sold. People who already possess these guns could either keep and register them with the federal government or sell them to the government. Those of you who want to keep your guns without having the state in your business will have the boycott movement to thank if Biden’s vision regarding firearms becomes a reality.

Biden has also vowed to take on social media companies like Facebook and Twitter due to their censorship policies. But he doesn’t intend to make their censorious practices fairer, he wants to compel them to practice more censorship. I’m sure I don’t need to tell you what this will mean for conservatives online, right?

This is only the tip of the iceberg, folks.

Yes, there are several factors explaining why the GOP did not perform as well as it could have in the runoff races. But we can’t discount those who essentially stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the left to impede the effort to maintain control of the Senate. In reality, they are no better than the Democrats; indeed, they are worse because they pose as allies of the right.

The question is: Are we going to let this go?

Will these people still be given a place on the right? It would not make sense to pillory turncoats like Mitt Romney, Rick Wilson, and the rest of them while continuing to allow the boycott crowd to keep a position of influence. In the next round, the conservative movement will have some choices to make that will quite literally determine its future. The civil war between the non-establishment and the establishment has already begun and judging by the chaos going on in the capitol at this very moment, it will only intensify. But we are the ones who will decide how it ends.
