The “big lie” about rampant voter fraud in 2020 is a well-known falsehood. The perpetrators of the Trump lie, like Reps. Marjorie Taylor-Greene, Josh Hawley, Jim Jordan, Matt Gaetz, Paul Gosar, Minority leader Kevin McCarthy and many others ALL know it’s a lie. They are laughing their asses off at the Trump supporters who believe Trump won, after over 65 state courts, the Supreme Court, and former Attorney General William Barr all determined NO RAMPANT FRAUD, NO STOLEN ELECTION happened. The “big lie” is like the final season of a failing Trump reality show, desperate in its attempt to hang on to a shrinking audience.
The reaction to Trump getting embarrassingly beaten into being a one-term loser president has been a Republican onslaught of voter suppression legislation. Trump’s loss, the degradation of respect for the Republican party, and the changing demographics in America have set off a panic in the party of white-fear, Christian Americans. The GOP is running scared and has decided the only way to win elections is to cheat. Waging an attack on the right to vote by legislating restrictions and creating obstacles into state election laws is their #1 desperate, un-American strategy to regain power. So the CHEATERS call the NON-CHEATERS the cheaters to deflect attention from their attempt to cheat voters out of easy access to vote.
President Biden and VP Kamala Harris met with the leaders of the NAACP, National Action Network, and the National Urban League yesterday to discuss protecting the right to vote against the onslaught of voter suppression legislation spreading in states across the country. President Biden pledged $25,000,000 from the Democratic party to join in the fight to defeat the Republicans campaign to restrict the right to vote. He also pledged to fight for Congress to pass voter protection legislation. Rev. Al Sharpton, President of the National Action Network, announced that this will be a “summer of activism to battle new voting restrictions enacted in Republican-led states in recent months.”
Americans who are worried about democracy being destroyed by voter suppression tactics should be comforted by the fact that President Biden’s top priority is protecting the right to vote, preserving election integrity, and erasing every racist policy left behind by the Trump Administration. The President’s meeting with the leaders of civil rights groups indicates the federal government’s awareness of the severity of how these voter suppression bills being pushed in over 48 States target communities of color and the disabled. Civil rights leaders are aware of how effectively organized demonstrations are in stopping racial injustice, not just regarding voting rights but in many aspects in the lives of black and Hispanic voters.
Trump and the Republicans have perfected the art of gaslighting. Lucky for them there are millions of gullible Americans whose hatred or mental problems have caused them to believe ridiculous lies about Democrats, immigrants, election results, the insurrection, and worst of all that Trump is smart, patriotic, honest, and competent. The “big election lie” and the lie that the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrectionists were members of Black Lives Matter and Antifa are examples of blatant disinformation which aimed to stop the certification of the democratic election of a US President. Despite all of Trump’s efforts to destroy the American democracy, the courts, civil rights leaders, House and Senate Democrats, and over 8,000,000 voters in the 2020 presidential election have saved the republic, for now. Winning the mid-terms, getting rid of the filibuster, resisting voter suppression, and giving no media attention to Donald Trump are vital components to preserving our democracy.
