• Liberal Reporter Reminds Progressives of Their Unhinged 2016 Electoral College Plot Against Trump

    He's a liberal, but he’s not afraid to shoot inside the ship when his
    side is being stupid. Michael Tracey is a reporter who you’ll probably disagree with on 95 percent of the issue, yes. But he’s not afraid to
    call out his colleagues who have become straight-up unspooled since
    2016. Tracey is a Russia collusion skeptic. He’s also a bigger skeptic
    in the ‘Trump is a fascist who’s plotting a 2020 coup’ narrative that
    some members of the media were peddling in the waning days of the 2020 election. So, what grenade did Tracey throw into the tent now?

    Well, the Left is beating their chest, declaring that Trump should
    concede and his refusal to do so is somehow detrimental to democracy.
    Yeah, you don’t do that with all these allegations of voter fraud,
    though his legal team hasn’t had many good moments as of late. The
    Nevada decision is very promising, however, though time is running out.
    Still, in our case, we have scores of witnesses who claim voter irregularities, especially concerning the illegal backdating of
    ballots. In 2016, it was a hyper-emotional meltdown from the Left who
    simply could not believe Hillary lost. Trump has reasons to mount a
    legal fight. Hillary did not. And still, liberal America went on a full-throated assault against the Electoral College. We had Paul
    Krugman of The New York Times calling the result illegitimate, coupled
    with scores of pieces about how electors should go rogue and back
    Clinton. I mean, take a look at this headline in The Washington Post by Lawrence Lessig: “The Constitution Let’s the Electoral College Choose
    the Winner. They Should Choose Clinton.” Michael Moore and MSNBC’s
    Chris Hayes talked about pressuring and persuading electors to not vote
    for Trump.

    Funny how @chrislhayes completely memory holed this.

    Tracey keeps the receipts, folks.

    “I knew it would be widely denied that prominent liberals floated an
    Electoral College coup in 2016, which is why I contemporaneously saved
    a bunch of examples,” he wrote.

    Well, when this failed, they just weaponized a media-manufactured myth
    in Russian collusion. Still, it goes back to the two separate rules
    doctrine regarding liberal and conservative America. Liberal America
    can protest an election result and peddle pieces about a coup, but conservatives cannot, even when allegations of funny business are
    lobbed.

    Again, time is ticking. The Nevada hearing on alleged voter fraud is
    set for December 3.

    Larry Lessig was really the hottest ticket in town for awhile.

    The thing about media/think tank liberals is that they're
    usually slightly more tactful than their right-wing
    counterparts when "floating" such harebrained schemes. Which
    gives them greater plausible deniability

    The examples are endless. Nobody says this is "the same" as
    what Trump is currently doing. Just something to bear in mind
    when you hear your favorite left/liberal media figures and
    operatives screaming about the sanctity of "norms"

    Alright, one more. This might've been the most celebrated New
    York Times op-ed of December 2016, when the Electoral College
    subversion scheme was really gaining elite momentum. Anyone
    who tries to tell you this stuff didn't happen is lying

    Democrats and the liberal media hate President Trump more than they
    love this country.

    "Allegations" don't mean shit without evidence. Trump has managed to
    bamboozle a large segment of the population with his gaslighting, but
    that gets you diddly squat in a court of law as his team has found out
    38 times.
