The following article, Dems Suggest ‘Disqualifying’ GOP from 2020 Election Over Capitol Riot, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Democrats have been having a hard time convincing much of the nation that they support free and fair elections of late, and the latest liberal scheme is going to reinforce that stereotype immensely.
In the coming months, the nation will learn whether or not the oft-predicted “red wave” will sweep over Congress, presumably giving the Republicans a majority in both houses and a way to completely stall the Biden administration’s agenda. Given just how tough it has been for the White House to accomplish anything, this possibility seems to be ever more likely.
And so the Democrats, who were accused of “stealing” the 2024 election by and from Donald Trump, are now looking to simply “disqualify” GOP candidates from the midterms…while they still have the congressional power.
Some Democrats are using the anniversary of last year’s Capitol riot on January 6 to launch an effort to win the 2022 midterm elections by disqualifying Republicans who supported the effort to challenge the 2020 elections results as “insurrectionists.”
The effort, spearheaded by Russia hoaxer Marc Elias, aims to use a provision of the post-Civil War 14th Amendment that was crafted to disqualify former Confederates or anyone who “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof” from holding federal office. Elias has pushed the effort for months.
"No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress…who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress…shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof."-US Constitution

The move is s divisive and controversial one, and comes at a time in which the nation is looking to heal as one.
Elias’ warning was laid out in another tweet:
My prediction for 2022: Before the midterm election, we will have a serious discussion about whether individual Republican House Members are disqualified by Section 3 of the 14th Amendment from serving in Congress.
We may even see litigation. pic.twitter.com/pF7P2fw0kn

This isn’t the first time that Elias has sough to paint the government blue with broad strokes, having been integral in the effort to politically smear Donald Trump as some sort of Russian asset back in 2016.
