A recent Associated Press (AP) headline reads, "Conservative groups draw up plan to dismantle the US government and replace it with Trump's vision."
The article warns that with a possible second White House term in his future, Donald Trump's campaign is putting together a team that would govern with his philosophy.
But as Washington Times columnist Robert Knight points out, that is not news, because every president in history has done that.
For the AP, however, the prospect of having a conservative administration back in power appears akin to the KKK marching on Selma.
"The Left always has a purpose for a crisis," Knight notes. "If it isn't the LGBTQ agenda, it's the climate agenda. If it isn't that, it's COVID. I mean, they're always threatening us with something."
The latest crisis is conservatism, and the purpose is to hold onto power.
"The Left's crisis extends to misidentifying an entire, huge group of Americans as enemies of the state," the columnist relays. "This would be conservatives, Christians in particular. It conveys the theme that somehow Trump and his followers are disloyal, unhinged, conspiracy types who are overthrowing democracy."
President Joe Biden, who shifted his anti-Trump rhetoric into another gear during his dystopian speech in Philadelphia a year ago, is leading the charge.
"Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represented extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic," Biden declared from a glowing "blood red" stage.
The attacks, Knight concludes, are really a diversion.
"Typically, the Left accuses other people of doing what they themselves are doing. Certainly, the Joe Biden government has exerted all sorts of unprecedented police powers," the columnist says.
