We’re losers, okay?
We’re hardcore losers.
That’s our values.
It’s who we are.
GOP Sen. Ben Sasse wrote on Facebook Wednesday night that he has been urging his Republican colleagues to “reject” objecting the certification process of the Electoral College and President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, adding that talk of objecting the process is a “dangerous ploy.”
“Having been in private conversation with two dozen of my colleagues over the past few weeks, it seems useful to explain in public why I will not be participating in a project to overturn the election — and why I have been urging my colleagues also to reject this dangerous ploy,” Sasse, the Republican senator from Nebraska, wrote in a six-part Facebook status late Wednesday night.
He added: “The president and his allies are playing with fire. They have been asking — first the courts, then state legislatures, now the Congress — to overturn the results of a presidential election. They have unsuccessfully called on judges and are now calling on federal officeholders to invalidate millions and millions of votes. If you make big claims, you had better have the evidence. But the president doesn’t and neither do the institutional arsonist members of Congress who will object to the Electoral College vote.”
In a video posted to YouTube on Thursday, Illinois Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger addressed the prevalence of conspiracy theories in U.S. politics while debunking some President Donald Trump’s allegations of voter fraud.
Trump has refused to concede the November election to President-elect Joe Biden, baselessly claiming that widespread voter fraud perpetrated by Democrats handed Biden the victory. Trump and members of his legal team have alleged that voting machines distributed by Dominion Voting Systems were programmed to flip votes from Trump to Biden.
While a majority of Trump’s legal efforts to have the election results overturned have failed, some House Republicans have stated they plan on objecting to the results of the Electoral College during the official Congressional count of the votes on Wednesday. Kinzinger said in the video that the challenges were based on misinformation.
“The president doesn’t want to admit defeat and nobody would, but he’s currently trying to discredit the election results through falsehoods and conspiracies,” Kinzinger said. “As someone entrusted to lead, I have a choice. I can be quiet and I can survive by taking the easy path or I can speak up and lead without concern for the consequences. I choose to lead without fear.”
It’s time to put on your big boy pants and surrender to an obvious fraud. If you don’t believe Joe Biden is the most popular person who ever lived, getting over 81 million votes, well guess what, buddy? No one believes that. This isn’t about believing, it’s about losing and giving up, because those are our values.
If you don’t like losing, if you don’t like giving up, if you don’t like gleefully surrendering to an existential enemy that wants you dead and your children raped – then hey, buddy – maybe you aught to move to China, because you’ve got no business calling yourself an American.
