Scissorhead Jimmy-T alerts us:
The US became a ‘backsliding democracy’ in 2020 and ‘fell victim to authoritarian tendencies’: report
- The US was dubbed a “backsliding democracy” for the first time in an annual report.
- The International IDEA’s report, which looked at trends across 2020 to 2021, said that the US “fell victim to authoritarian tendencies.”
- The report warned that Trump’s effort to overturn the election had “spillover effects” in other countries.
The US was listed as a “backsliding democracy” for the first time in an annual report on the state of global democracy from the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance, a Stockholm-based organization.
So we got that workin’ for us.
