Biden Says Nicaragua Election a Sham

Following Donald Trump stealing the US election in 2016, and Alexander Lukashenko stealing the Belarus election in summer of 2020, there was a brief period wherein election theft was impossible.

Unfortunately, that period has ended, and people are back to stealing elections again.


Nicaragua’s “sham elections,” in which longtime President Daniel Ortega and his wife, Vice President Rosario Murillo, are expected to claim victory, were “neither free nor fair,” US President Joe Biden has said.

The people in the Central American country of some 6.5 million went to the polls on Sunday, with the 75-year-old socialist leader Ortega looking to secure his fourth consecutive and fifth overall five-year term in office.

The Nicaraguan leadership “orchestrated… a pantomime election that was neither free nor fair, and most certainly not democratic,” Biden said in a statement late on Sunday.

The crackdown on political opponents by the Ortega-Murillo government “rigged the outcome well before election day,” the US president insisted.

Some 40 opposition figures have been detained since May, including seven potential presidential candidates, while the independent media were “shuttered” in the country, according to the statement.

The Nicaraguan police have said that those arrested were “traitors,” accused of a whole range of wrongdoings from conspiring to undermine national integrity by calling for sanctions and foreign intervention into the country to financial crimes, like money laundering.

Please note that this is somehow different than social media banning all Trump supporters before the election. Trump supporters are racists, meaning they are metaphysically evil and must be banned.

On a completely unrelated note, a big military victory in Latin America might be really good for Joe Biden. If he can thwart a dictatorship and bring them democracy, the masses in America will rally to his beckon.

Biden needs to let the people know that he does not tolerate non-democratic actions, and that if you try it, he will slaughter you like dogs.

Just like the coronavirus vaccine only works if everyone takes it, democracy only works if everyone believes in our values.

It’s time that Biden reminded them that there is only one place for opposers of our values: in the grave.
