The Emperor’s New Clothes and the Democrats’ Old Tricks

In the fable “The Emperor’s New Clothes”, a sly royal tailor makes the Leader an invisible outfit and declares it the most beautiful ever; but, only if you have discerning eyes. So, the Monarch goes along with it, trapses around naked and everyone goes along with the ruse. Except an innocent young boy who shouts, “Look, Mummy, he doesn’t have any clothes on!” Then, everyone wakes up, in shame, to the deception, and the Emperor actually congratulates the boy.

We have a widely propagated myth of Biden’s win, dismissing all reasonable discernment and credible evidence. Even Fox and National Review have fallen for the ruse. But some bright young ones (led by a boy named Rudi) see through the fraud and that spreads the truth quickly.

The reliable Rasmussen Poll shows half of Americans (and a THIRD of Democrats) think the Democrats cheated and stole the Election. These are new waters for our Country, beyond even the crisis of 1800 around President Jefferson’s election (which wasn’t just against John Adams and Aaron Burr, but the whole corrupt moribund Federalist Party).

During such tumultuous times, I put my trust in my Faith, which as St. Augustine advises, we are to “take to thee thy faith as a shield, whereby thou mayest be able to quench all the fiery darts of the enemy.” We don’t know how this will be resolved and The Emperor’s New Clothes revealed to be nonexistent (Courts; State Legislatures; Congress; the United States Supreme Court?), but I take confidence in our National Hymn:

“America, America; God Shed His Grace on Thee.”
