The Teacher and the Schoolyard Bullies

Once upon a time, not really, but just to make my point through use of an analogy, there was a student in grade school named Billy. One day Billy was on the playground playing when he happened to come across another student named Joey. For reasons unknown to anyone, Joey socked Billy in the eye and gave him a shiner. Billy was noticeably shaken and immediately went to his teacher Ms. Smith. He explained to her that he was out on the playground and Joey punched him in the eye. But instead of calling Joey over to punish him, she did nothing.

Although Billy was visibly hurt, he was no pushover. He went over to all the kids that were on the playground who saw the incident happen and asked them to vouch for him, imploring Ms. Smith to take action. There were plenty of other kids willing to step forward and act as witnesses on Billy’s behalf. Some weren’t even his friends but they knew a wrong had been committed and had to do something.

Ms. Smith heard them all out but a funny thing happened, she dismissed their statements. She couldn’t be bothered to do the right thing even with all the evidence and eyewitness testimony from the kids who courageously took a stand. Billy didn’t give up, however. He pursued the matter and went to the principal who also snubbed him, telling him his injuries don’t warrant punishing Joey for what he did to him.

Meanwhile, on the playground, another boy named Jimmy was playing with a soccer ball when a group of boys came by and stole the ball from him. Jimmy went to his teacher, Mr. Jones, and told him the story, asking him to please retrieve his soccer ball from the group of kids that stole it from him. Mr. Jones, however, half-listened to him and commented that it was not that big of a deal.

Both Billy’s and Jimmy’s complaints had fallen on deaf ears. No one in an authoritative position was willing to help. They knew if they wanted anything to happen they must take their issues all the way to the school board, where a final decision would be made.

Time was running out, however, because the school year was ending. Teachers and principals had vacations planned as well as a new school year to prepare for. If something didn’t happen soon the cases would be lost forever.

By now you’ve probably figured out the analogy. Democrats are trying to steal the election from President Donald Trump while federal courts and state legislatures refuse to take it seriously.

In another analogy, this appears to be like a football game during the final two minutes of the fourth quarter. Democrats got away with cheating on a few plays. Now they’re in the lead, have possession of the ball and are doing their best to run out the clock. Even the referees, who are supposed to enforce the rules, are doing their best to bring the game to an end.

There is still time, though, and President Trump should not concede because he knows that he has evidence of voter fraud that can turn this election around. If this can get to the US Supreme Court, the truth can finally be heard and Democrat voter fraud can finally be exposed.
