Salon Magazine Warns of ‘Democracy’s Last Thanksgiving’ If Trump Becomes President

Left-leaning Salon Magazine has published one of the most hilarious headlines, maybe in its history, declaring that it will be ‘Democracy’s Last Thanksgiving’ if Donald Trump wins the 2024 election and becomes president.

Salon politics writer Chauncey Devega wrote:

“Trump and his allies and acolytes are publicly planning to make him America’s first de facto dictator, which will mean the end of the country’s democracy.”

The writer fails to mention that the US economy is in the worst state it’s ever been under Joe Biden, given the skyrocketing inflation, and oil and gasoline prices.

Americans continue to suffer from the government’s continuous allocation of billions of American tax dollars for foreign wars like Ukraine and now Israel.

But somehow, according to Salon, Trump would make things worse.

Devega even argues that Trump is faring better than Biden in the polls because Americans are stupid.

“Journalists, pundits, the mainstream political class, other experts, and everyday Americans who follow politics and current events closely assume that the average member of the public does so as well,” the Salon author writes.

“There are decades of research by political scientists and other experts, however, that shows this to not be true.”

“In reality, most Americans are politically disengaged, lack a sophisticated understanding of political matters, are imagistic and emotional, have a difficult time retaining and understanding complex information, do not pay close attention to elections until they decide to vote, and more generally are civically illiterate,” he continues.

“More than half of the American public reads below a sixth-grade level.”

“In all, the average voter also makes political decisions based on “calculations” and concerns that mainstream professional politics watchers — especially liberals and progressives — would find ‘irrational.”

Devega even claims that foul play will tip the election in Trump’s favor.

“Given the Electoral College, voter nullification and voter suppression, gerrymandering and other structural failings in American “democracy” there is a very real and growing probability that Donald Trump will return to power in 2025,” he notes.

Devega goes on to lament that the media and ‘experts’ have failed to persuade the public into believing “Dictator Trump” is fascist.

“The sum effect is that these discussions and warnings about America’s ‘democracy crisis’ and ‘fascism’ are often ignored or filtered out by large portions of the public as being just more ‘partisan bickering’ and ‘politics as usual,'” he writes.

“Intervening against that dangerous tendency requires making the stakes and implications of Trump’s return to power and the end of American democracy very clear, very direct, and very real for the average person.”

“The mainstream news media and political class have largely failed in that task.”

“To that point, this may be the last Thanksgiving where the American people will live in a democracy, however flawed and ailing it may be, where their basic Constitutional and other civil rights are relatively secure.”

Devega pulls out analysis from several “experts” to highlight and argue his Trump Doomsday scenario.

Author of “American Fascism: How the GOP is Subverting Democracy, Brynn Tannehill, is worried the trans community will be forced to “detransition” if Trump wins.

“How will I spend Thanksgiving in the years following a Trump re-election? In Canada, on the second Monday of October,” Tannehill writes.

“I suppose we’ll be thankful we got out because Republicans at both the state and federal level are making it clear that their goal is a future with every trans person either in the closet or detransitioned,” Tannehill adds.

“If Trump goes down, the status quo holds for another 4 years. We’ll see if the GOP continues to be just as dedicated to “eradicating transgenderism” in 2028. Based on the core characteristics of fascism, my guess is yes.”

Meanwhile, the co-founder of The Lincoln Project and author of “Everything Trump Touches Dies,” Rick Wilson, claims the DOJ will target him if Trump becomes president.

“If Trump wins in 2024, it’ll be a dark Thanksgiving indeed,” he moans.

“Like millions of Americans, I’ll be contemplating how to protect my family from the coming authoritarianism Trump and his people have promised. As someone Trump ordered Bill Barr to investigate back in 2020, I’m likely on their list. It almost seems absurd to type those words, but it’s important to plan for the worst.”
