MAGA Senator Calls For ‘Martial Law’ After Electoral College Confirms Biden

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.

“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.

CNN Host Compares Trump Election Challenge Lunatics To ‘Confederates’ – “Crybabies” Is More Appropriate

For months leading up to the election, Trump complained about mail-in voting to sow doubt in the MAGA crowd about it’s validity and integrity. He claimed the Democrats would use it to cheat, to rig the election, to commit fraud. It was an effective strategy to brainwash the rubes and they fell for it hook, line and sinker, convinced that their lord and savior was being cheated as the rightful heir to the throne.

The election came and passed, and there has been no evidence to show that there has been any widespread fraud, and yet Trump and his lawyers, and allies in media, have continue to challenge the legitimacy of the election, and cling to the fantasy that “he won by a landslide,” and that Sleepy Joe Biden who is supposedly so incompetent and senile, has somehow managed to mastermind an elaborate conspiracy to manipulate voting machines all over America to switch votes for Trump over to Biden, all with behind the scenes assistance from George Soros, Russia, China, and the evil spirit of Hugo Chavez.

Despite nearly every case being dismissed, Trump and his team of clowns continue to embarrass themselves and demonstrate how much they despise democracy, and Trump media continues to push the myth of election fraud despite any lack of evidence.

On this past Wednesday’s Reality Check, CNN’s John Avalon allegedly compared Trump and the MAGA crowd to “Confederates” for continuing to challenge the election results. I say “alleged” due to the fact that Fox News has a reputation for not being the best of reliable sources – an accusation they often make against CNN and MSNBC, with no self-awareness – and also because every source I could find linked directly to Fox News, and Fox News linked to an article at Newsmax, an even more dubious source. Neither Fox or Newsmax linked to CNN or a video, so… I remain skeptical. If he did compare the lunatics to secessionists, then I see no problem with it, since some of them have expressed a desire to secede, such as more than one hundred Republican members of Congress, and the Texas GOP chairman, Allen West who threw a verbal tantrum after the Supreme Court dismissed their election lawsuit:

“The Supreme Court, in tossing the Texas lawsuit that was joined by seventeen states and one hundred and six US congressman, has decreed that a state can take unconstitutional actions and violate its own election law. Resulting in damaging effects on other states that abide by the law, while the guilty state suffers no consequences. This decision establishes a precedent that says states can violate the US constitution and not be held accountable. This decision will have far-reaching ramifications for the future of our constitutional republic. Perhaps law-abiding states should bond together and form a Union of states that will abide by the constitution. The Texas GOP will always stand for the Constitution and the rule of law even while others don’t.”

These people – Allen West, the Republican Congressmen who endorsed this ridiculous lawsuit, and all of the Trump bootlicking sychopants in the media, as well as his fringe QAnon-loving base of lunatics – are not patriots. They are unAmerican. They hate America. I feel comfortable saying it. They hate the Constitution and everything it stands for. They believe the Constitution should work for them, and them only. If they respected the Constitution and the rule of law, they would accept the results of the election like adults, instead of throwing a hissy fit like a two year-old toddler who can’t have it’s way. But nothing less can be expected from a president who acts like one himself.
