For many years, Democrats have questioned the legitimacy of elections, but only when they lose. One of my writers remembers his Republican father, who died in the ‘90s, joking that “No Democrat ever lost a ‘fair’ election.” Remember Bush being “selected not elected,” and Trump being an “illegitimate President,” according to many top Dems, from Hillary Clinton to the incoming House Minority Leader? Yet somehow, only after the 2020 election, probably the most suspicious and unorthodox election ever, did anyone who raised suspicions get branded as an “election denier,” an insurrectionist and a threat to democracy itself.
I’ve long stated that you don’t even have to make accusations about jiggered voting machines or stuffed ballot boxes to think the 2020 election was rigged because the people who did it openly bragged about it. Except they called it “safeguarding” the election, except they "safeguarded" Joe Biden by conspiring to prevent voters from hearing negative true information that polls show would have changed many votes. Recent revelations about collusion between the DNC and Twitter have confirmed that charge. That’s not election “safeguarding,” it’s election interference. And it’s a form of election rigging. You don’t have to blatantly shove all the balls into the pockets to rig a pool game; all you need to do is tilt the table a little.

That brings us to Arizona, where the 2022 gubernatorial election stank like a truckload of week-old halibut, and everybody knows it. As Secretary of State, Democrat “Governor-elect” Katie Hobbs refused to recuse herself from running her own election, and massive Election Day “tech problems” in heavily-Republican districts created long lines and disenfranchised an unknown number of her opponent's voters in a race determined by only 17,000 votes. Election officials claim that almost everyone who wanted to vote was eventually able to, but they have no idea how many people gave up and had to leave without voting.
Is it possible that the suspicious activity has finally become so blatant that it’s impossible to gaslight it away by branding anyone who notices the stink as an “election denier?” It’s starting to look that way, and thank God for that. A Rasmussen survey found that even 69% of Democrats think Arizonans were denied their right to vote. The state certified the vote, but only after Hobbs threatened to arrest county officials who refused to comply. The current Governor and Attorney General made it clear that they only attended the certification process because they were obligated to, but their duress couldn’t have been more obvious if they’d held their noses throughout the entire thing.
The vote had to be certified before any formal objections could be filed, and Republican Kari Lake says she plans to file a lawsuit by Friday to overturn and redo the election. She said she will go all the way to the Supreme Court, and it’s going to get “ugly.” I’d say our elections got ugly a long time ago; I just want to see them get disinfected by sunshine.
By the way, for those who still insist that any claims of voter fraud are crazy conspiracy theories and a “Big Lie,” J.R. Dunn of the American Thinker put together a brief history of just some of the more recent examples of known “Democrat electoral malfeasance,” some of which were blocked and some successful.
Extra points to Dunn for pointing out something I’ve often noted: that the media have a habit of sticking the adjective “debunked” in front of every narrative that’s negative for Democrats, but “they never quite get around to details such as when, where, by whom, and on what grounds.”
