Maddow: People Who Contest Elections Should ‘Go to Jail’

November 24, 2020

Monday on MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show, host/propagandist Rachel Maddow declared that people who legally contest elections should “go to jail for it or to feel like they are going to get in trouble.”

“I think a lot of people are also worried about what you were describing there, about these tactics, both by the president and by his campaign and by Republicans who support him,” Maddow told her guest from the NAACP, “that after an election, elections officials are now subject to lobbying, subject to pressure, subject to enticement or threats in a way that should get them to do whatever their party or the party in power or anybody else who has an effect in terms of influencing them, can get them to do.

“I want to go back to that not being a norm in our democracy. I’m worried that now that the Trump administration has set this precedent, it will be. And it feels like the only way to stop that becoming the new normal, at least in Republican politics, is for some people to go to jail for it or to feel like they are going to get in trouble if they get caught doing something like that.”

Democrat hypocrites have contested the election process ever since losing to Trump in 2016 — demanding, for example, that the electoral college be abolished and claiming that Trump stole the election. Now that their widespread voter fraud has put the 2020 election in question, they want to imprison anyone who questions the outcome. If it weren’t for their relentless lust for power, the Democrats would have no values at all.
