CNN: America Is A Democracy, Not A Constitutional Republic!


CNN aired a ridiculous “news” segment this weekend, telling its gullible audience the United States is a Democracy and that those who claim it’s a constitutional republic are just MAGA conspiracy theorists.

The outlet sent a European reporter to Donald Trump rallies only to be shocked that his supporters consistently pointed out the nation is a constitutional republic and not a democracy.

The report showed several pro-Trump people expressing the notion America is a constitutional republic, before telling viewers, “But for centuries, America has celebrated its democracy.”

Next, CNN alleged, “Some Republicans and pro-Trump media are pushing the idea that America is not a democracy.”

A leftist author named Anne Applebaum told the outlet, “America is a democracy. It was founded as a democracy,” and claimed Trump is behind the idea that the nation is a constitutional republic.

“Honestly, the word democracy and the word republic have often been used interchangeably. There isn’t a meaningful difference between them,” Applebaum stated.

This claim comes from the same group of people who cannot define the word “woman” and say men can be women capable of giving birth.

In reality, the words do have a meaningful difference and it can even be seen in the titles of today’s two largest American political parties.

The Democratic Party leans more towards recognizing the democracy side of U.S. government while the Republican Party is supposed to stand for The Republic.

The CNN segment was a bizarre example of mainstream revisionist history as the word “democracy” does not even appear in the the Declaration of Independence or U.S. Constitution.

The American Founding Fathers were quite wary of democracies as they can give the majority, or the mob, too much power over minority groups.

One of the most common critical takes on democracy is that it “is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.”

John Adams wrote in 1814, “Remember Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes exhausts and murders itself. There never was a Democracy Yet, that did not commit suicide.”

The Bill of Rights and U.S. Constitution were carefully crafted to give We The People control of the republic in ways a true democracy could never assure.

The objective of the CNN hit piece was to convince viewers Donald Trump and his supporters will “attack democracy” because they don’t believe it exists.

Meanwhile, the people who claim the constitutional republic doesn’t exist are defiling the American Constitution.

Applebaum said she was unsure why there was a debate about how to define the American government before laughably saying, “I think they mean, ‘We want Donald Trump to be able to do whatever he wants.’”

The outlet’s Irish reporter Donie O’Sullivan told viewers a constitutional republic “is a form of democracy” and that the MAGA crowd is engaging in “an attack on democracy.”

Remember, the Pledge of Allegiance declares allegiance “to my Flag and
to the Republic for which it stands,” not the democracy.
