"I don't blame the politicians so much as their constituents"

in response to reader comment: A sickly Conservative movement

Dear Dr. Daniel Pipes,

You just made this comment in relation to the "Conspiracy Theories" that politicians are forced to take up to get elected: "I don't blame the politicians so much as their constituents." If I understand that correctly, I agree with you. But that leads me to ask you to follow through on that analysis.

I want to remind you that when Trump was campaigning for for his successful re-election, he was on the bottom of the Republican list. Yet he succeeded in being re-elected. And you were, I believe, disgusted that such a character was elected. However, during his term of office you admitted that what he accomplished was a surprise, and as I recollect, you announced that you would vote for him because he was a Conservative in his Actions.

It seems to me that you still cannot get over the fact that you do not like him because of what he SAYS, even though you like what he DID.

As a consequence, I believe, you mix the "Fraud" issue involving that One Day Riot of January 6th, with the whole other event of the STOLEN ELECTION which took 4 years to do, and that was accomplished by the Democrats and Progressives.

For example, when Progressives supported the policy of "De-fund the Police," "Police Brutality," "Black Lives Matter," "Woke" explanations, and excused the Looting and burning of cars - that was alleged to be a consequence of Trump's "Racism."

But when there was a Democratic failure to adequately Police the Capitol grounds by Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Mayor of Washington, DC, that was due to Trump's "Fraud" (without facts) accusation at his Rally.

I do not see why you do not simply advise the Conservatives AND Republicans to EXPLAIN what a "Stolen Election" means in a Political context?

I think that if you put aside your personal dislike for Trump as someone you would wish to have a discussion with, and focus on what he did, and can accomplish in the future, you would advise Conservatives and Democrats to vote for Trump in the next Election (assuming he will run) because he was great, and is the best candidate.

Oh. And Trump's re-election was "Stolen" if one simply redefines "Theft" and "Dishonesty" like a good Politician instead of a Brilliant Intellectual from Harvard.

PS: Obama accomplished one great thing. He proved that a smooth talking African American can be elected the President of the United States. That established that our country is no longer Racist in this real world (unless one wants 100% purity in this imperfect world). On the other hand, Trump proved that a Poor Talking White Rich Businessman and Media Celebrity could also be elected - on a slogan of Making America Great Again.

Trump - in FACT - changed the World for the Better - through the Abrahamic Accords. For this alone, you, Dr. Daniel Pipes, an Expert on the Middle East, should urge both Conservatives and Republicans, to support the Candidacy of Trump, especially in the light of the current Biden Administration Disaster and possible "Holocaust" in Afghanistan due to our hast withdrawal; and of course there is the unfolding failing Iran nuclear negations.

In brief, the Re-election of Trump was "Stolen"; the issue is simply How, When, and for How Long?
