Democrats feel threatened and terrified as Republicans seem to be on their way to conquering the nation.
Thousands of Trump supporters are moving to influence and seize control of the Republican Party “precinct by precinct” — a movement Democrats are now calling “frightening.”
This movement was initially galvanized by former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon during his “War Room” podcast in February 2021.
Earlier this year, Bannon was one of Trump’s allies who stoked the flames ahead of the Capitol insurrection in an attempt to halt the certification of Joe Biden’s electoral issue.
“TAKE ACTION. THEY ARE TRYING TO STEAL THE ELECTION,” Bannon called on Republicans in his Facebook group “Own Your Vote.”
“It’s them against us. Who can impose their will on the other side?” he further questioned in his “War Room” podcast.
In May 2021, Former Trump adviser Bannon once again urged the listeners of his massively popular podcast to win back control of the country “precinct by precinct.”
“It’s going to be a fight, but this is a fight that must be won, we don’t have an option. We’re going to take this back village by village … precinct by precinct.” Bannon incited.
Republicans are quick to heed Bannon’s call.
ProPublica journalist Isaac Arnsdorf recently posted an analysis of the “an unusual increase” in precinct officer sign-ups in 41 out of 65 key counties that reached up to at least 8,500 new Republican officials.
BREAKING: We found 1000s of Trump supporters taking over local GOP positions — an unprecedented grassroots groundswell devoted to Trump’s insistence that the 2020 election was stolen & Republicans need to stop that from happening again https://t.co/btjMNXvft3— Isaac Arnsdorf (@iarnsdorf) September 2, 2021
Democrats are openly displaying their worry over this movement which seems to be gaining more traction and more Republican precinct officer applicants.
This is the FRIGHTENING. Bannon is pushing his cult to take over local positions to reshape America’s elections and make GOP even more radical and dangerous.— Olga Lautman (@OlgaNYC1211) September 4, 2021
This is the direct result of criminal Bannon working as a foreign agent with zero accountability https://t.co/4t4oRTGKSp
