As we’ve documented extensively here at RedState, liberal New York Times columnist Paul Krugman is prone to pushing far-out conspiracy theories about Republicans, theories that were no doubt pulled from the murky pits of the leftist fever swamps he visits on those rare occasions he feels the need to venture out of the NYC bubble in which he currently resides.

For example, he has, without evidence, floated an absurd theory about how President Trump may have “gotten to the BLS” on reporting good job numbers during the pandemic. He’s also spun some fact-free tales about a supposed correlation between the Trump administration’s touting of hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for the Wuhan virus and past “right-wing medical quackery.”

Consumed with Trump Derangment Syndrome, his favorite conspiracy theory of all seems to be the one where he envisions Trump “stealing” the election. He’s written numerous Twitter threads detailing how he thinks things will play out, and a few columns about it, too.

The latest example of TDS consuming Krugman beyond all hope came today when declared that dark days were ahead for America, not thanks to the left-wing Antifa/BLM-led riots that are happening in Democrat-run cities like his, not thanks to the unhinged leftists who are threatening to “burn the country down” in the aftermath of RBG’s death, but thanks to Trump and Republicans, who he claims will take drastic measures if the election doesn’t go their way:

“Expect violence from Trump supporters“?? Like most of our “intellectual betters” on the left, Krugman has once again demonstrated that he lives in a bubble of complete cluelessness and obliviousness to the rotten things going on all around him, all perpetrated by extremists on his side of the aisle.

This is not really about whether or not Trump and his supporters will accept the election results. What Krugman has really done over the last few months is to try and preemptively discredit the election results in the event Trump does win. In fact, it’s almost as though the people pushing the idea that Trump will “steal” the election believe he’s got a real shot at winning, so they’re trying to delegitimize it before it (possibly) happens. Which, ironically, will be what actually inspires people to riot – namely the radical leftists he denies exist.

In reality, what’s really “terrifying” here is that Krugman and his ilk can’t see the forest for the trees. He is feeding directly into the dangerous and false Election Day narratives being weaved by Democrats and other media figures like him who four years later have still not accepted the results of the last presidential election.

If there is any post-election day violence, it will most assuredly be plotted and coordinated by some of the same repugnant slugs on the radical left who have orchestrated what has played out in cities like Portland and Seattle, and one of the people we can look to blame for at least in part inspiring the violence will be none other than Paul Krugman.
