Since 2020, conversations about election security in the United States are highly controversial.
During the 2020 presidential election, there were numerous reports of fraudulent votes, Americans getting multiple ballots, rigged voting machines, ballots in trash cans, and other funny business.
However, when Republicans brought up these concerns, they were quickly disregarded as conspiracy theorists and spreaders of false news. The running narrative on the left is that the 2020 presidential election was the most secure election in US history.
However, going on almost two years after the 2020 presidential race, Democrats are showing their hypocrisy when it comes to US elections, as reported by Red State.
Double Standards on Critiquing Elections
Currently, leftists are taking to social media, slamming the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, Ginni Thomas, for texting “Stop the Steal” to the chief of staff under the Trump administration.
Democrats are saying this constitutes some form of collusion and wrongdoing. However, merely texting “Stop the Steal” isn’t the damning piece of evidence Democrats want it to be.
It’s simply free speech that leftists disagree with. However, there is a certain irony in Democrats being outraged over Thomas questioning the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.
During the presidential elections of both 2004 and 2016, Democrats actually voted against the certifications. During the 2000 presidential election, Democrats even claimed that the race had been stolen by George W. Bush.
To this very day, any Republican or conservative who questions Biden’s win is called a conspiracy theorist and a threat to democracy. Many critics of the 2020 presidential election’s outcome have even been yanked down from social media.
Despite the outrage from the leftists on Twitter, Ginni Thomas’ “Stop the Steal” text to Trump’s chief of staff is well within legal bounds.
Bad Timing for Democrats
This latest, left-wing meltdown over a “Stop the Steal” text message doesn’t do Democrats any favors.
This hypocrisy comes months before the midterms the Democrat Party is already strongly projected to lose. By railing against Ginni Thomas, Democrats are showing the country that temper tantrums over private texts are more important to them than issues hurting everyday Americans.
Some of the worst issues facing America right now are high gas prices, high inflation, growing crime rates, and rising interest rates. If Democrats were serious, they’d be focusing on these matters, not what the wife of a Supreme Court justice texted to a former president’s chief of staff.
