During Wednesday’s Democratic
Debate Echobubblechamber, Sen. Corey “Spartacus” Booker claimed the earth was flat, the moon landings were a hoax, vaccines cause autism, Bigfoot lives in the foothills of the Appalachians, Texas is hiding a giant jackalope population, the Russians hacked the 2016 election, and Stacey Abrams should be governor of Georgia. And Democrats are still buying this ridiculous lie.
Booker: “We lost the state of Michigan because everybody from Republicans to Russians were targeting the suppression of African American voters. We need to say that.”
No, we don’t need to say that, because it’s a lie.
Yet, Tom Perez, head of the DNC, repeated it. “Using himself as an example, Perez said that if he were to vote without using his middle initial, Georgia election officials would be prepared to remove him from the voting rolls.”
Left-leaning Politifact can’t even support this tin-foil-hat conspiracy that keeps being repeated in the hopes that a lie, repeated enough times, becomes truth.
Abrams lost by almost 55,000 votes in a race with record turnout for a midterm race, said University of Georgia political scientist Charles S. Bullock. Black turnout in 2018 actually slightly exceeded that in 2016, he said.
“The claim is a good talking point, but the evidence is missing,” he said.
In fact, the rate of minority new voter registration in Georgia surpassed white registration. The voter roll purges deal with people who have died, moved, or haven’t voted in years. There’s no real evidence to support anyone was systematically suppressed. All we hear about is lawsuits by people who collect narratives like Bigfoot sightings and UFO abductions.
When Democrats depend on horrendous lies, it makes the lies we hear coming from the President and his sycophants more believable. If you want to believe Stacey Abrams should be governor, then prepare to have others tell you there’s a Deep State effecting a coup to remove President Trump, Ukraine is protecting Joe Biden and their hidden secret of 2016 election tampering, while the Russians were totally innocent and are our good friends.
