The Electoral College has confirmed that Joe Biden will be the next president of the United States. But, as is the case with many Republicans who are loyal to Donald Trump, they are not having it. They just cannot accept the fact that their candidate lost a fair election, so they resort to tantrums, lies and conspiracy theories to justify their childish behavior.
Virginia GOP state Senator Amanda Chase threw a tantrum on her Facebook page after the EC confirmed Sleepy Joe’s election victory, calling for Trump to suspend the Constitution and declare martial law so he could steal a fair election.
“Not my president and never will be. The American people aren’t fools. We know you cheated to win and we’ll never accept these results.
“Fair elections we can accept but cheating to win, never. It’s not over yet. So thankful President Trump has a backbone and refuses to concede.
“President Trump should declare martial law as recommended by General Flynn.”
Chase certainly is a fool, as are anyone who believes anything Trump says about the election. He’s been complaining about the validity of mail-in voting since day one, and rubes – who are in abundance among the MAGA crowd – like Chase, buy it without question. So, her claim that the American people are not fools, comes up a bit short in the fact department. Millions of rubes voted for him based on outright lies and conspiracy BS. That would make them fools. They have provided no evidence of cheating; they have had numerous opportunities to prove it in court but have failed every single time, and yet they just cannot admit defeat. Yes, it is definitely over. There was a fair election. No amount of lies, conspiracies or childish tantrums are going to change the results. Trump lost. He doesn’t have a backbone because he refuses to concede. He’s wears a metaphorical diaper as a badge of honor to prove how immature he is, as do his supporters and they are proud of it.
A little background on Chase. This is a real American patriot, and a deep, deep thinker. After the death of George Floyd, Chase threw another tantrum after it was announced that a statue of Robert E. Lee would be removed from the capitol of Richmond, Virginia. Chase – like every conservative who swears up and down that the Democratic party is the real party of racism – wasn’t too thrilled with the idea. On her Facebook page, she called it an attack on white people.
From Rawstory –
“It disturbs me whenever I see people – let’s be honest, there is an overt effort here to erase all white history,” she said. “That’s what they’re looking at doing. Look, our grandfather’s were guilty of slavery, and that is wrong… but that wasn’t all that Lee and others were known for. They did other things. You know, there is not one human being who has not committed a sin.
The opposition to Confederate monuments, she added, is “all about shoving this down people’s throats, and erasing the history of white people.”
Taking down monuments to traitors who rebelled against the Union of states and fought to preserve the institution of slavery, is, according to this genius, erasing the history of white people, and shoving it down people’s throats. Is she proud of the racist history of the south? Sounds like it.
She’s been criticized by a few Republicans, but not enough. Dan Riggleman who lost in the primary for re-election, tweeted:
“Do you support facts and liberty? Or martial law based on unhinged conspiracy ramblings from Sydney Powell and Mike Flynn?
Another Republican Senator, Bill Stanley tweeted in response to her claim that Virginia Democrats hate white people:
“Conservatives don’t stand for fueling division and hate, no matter what the other side tries to do to us, or says about us. We are the party of Lincoln, not Chase.”
To which I respond with: Conservatives are not the party of Lincoln. They ceased being the party of Lincoln when they adopted the southern strategy. They stopped being the party of Lincoln when they openly embraced fascism. They ceased being the party of Lincoln when they attacked Barack Obama as illegitimate. They ceased being the party of Lincoln when they attacked Black Lives Matter as illegitimate. Conservatives, the Republican party has done nothing but stand for division and hate from the moment the first black president announced that he was running for president. The other side, the left, doesn’t have to say it. It’s just a fact that’s irrefutable. It is the party that is calling for suspending the Constitution to overturn an election by force because their candidate did not win. This is the kind of shit they claimed that Obama would do when it came to guns, and when it came time for him to leave the White House. Now that their candidate is behaving like a dictator, and his loyal sycophants are encouraging him to do what they claimed Obama would do… crickets from most of the party and right-wing media. If Democrats had cried fraud and suggested suspending the Constitution if Trump had won the election, it would not only be non-stop news, Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Judy Riuliani, Laura Ingraham, and the rest of the Trump sycophants in the media, would be calling for retribution. That’s also a fact.
The Republican party is the party of Trump. I’ve said it previously and I will say it again: Republicans like Amanda Chase – who support suspending the Constitution to overturn an election – are unAmerican. They should be ostracized and expelled from the party. Which will never happen. The Republican party – for the most part – does not mind their presence.
