A war over the Constitution has brought divisions in America to a “truly unhealthy” level, according to Roger L. Simon, co-founder of PJ Media and a senior political analyst for The Epoch Times.
“We have a war over the Constitution going on now. That’s probably the heart of the big split,” Simon told Joshua Phillip, host of EpochTV’s “CrossRoads” program.
“I think the divisions reached the level of being truly unhealthy,” Simon continued. “What’s going on is a bloodsport, and it’s extremely worrisome to me as a relatively old guy—very well worried about the future generations.”
Simon mentioned that his daughter is turning 23 soon and the world she’s moving into is not the world anybody over 50—or even over 30, 40—lived in.
“I think there’re two countries” in America, Simon said. “That’s really what’s happened.”
However, the ongoing Maricopa County, Arizona, forensic audit of the 2020 presidential election could lead to “a more extreme split,” predicted Simon.
The final report for Maricopa’s audit, which started on April 23, is expected to be out in August.
Democrats have largely opposed the audit. The Department of Justice wrote a letter in May to Arizona Senate President Karen Fann, expressing concerns with the audit. The move was criticized by Republicans as an attempt to block the audit.
“If they do find fraud, of course, it’s not going to be believed,” Simon said. “It’s going to be disputed immediately by the left, the current administration, the mainstream media—all of it—that they’re going to find some way to discredit it, and they’re going to work as hard as they can to discredit it.”
“On the other hand, those 75 million or more Trump voters are going to have their vote validated, and they’re going to be thinking the opposite,” Simon added. “So what’s going to happen is a more extreme split than we’ve had, but it’s almost an inevitable thing that’s going to happen.”
Simon said it’s very hard to know exactly what will happen, because neither the current Department of Justice, nor the Supreme Court is likely to solve this problem.
