Professor Garrett Ward Sheldon comments on the US elections farce, drawing on an old but pertinent fairytale.
The Emperor’s New Clothes and the Democrats’ Old Tricks
GEN Z Conservative
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.
