Today, the Electors will vote to put Donald Trump in the White House. Anybody who believes otherwise needs a reality check.
But the democrats have been doing everything in their power to stop it from happening, and this includes trying to convince electors that they should change their vote. In other words, they shouldn’t support the desire of their own state, if that desire was Trump-ian in nature.
Perhaps “convince” is too light a word, however. What liberals have REALLY been doing is actually much more sinister, and once again reminds us all of the unmitigated thug tactics this party will use.
The nation’s 538 presidential electors have been thrust into the political foreground like never before in American history. In the aftermath of a uniquely polarizing presidential contest, the once-anonymous electors are squarely in the spotlight, targeted by death threats, harassing phone calls and reams of hate mail. One Texas Republican elector said he’s been bombarded with more than 200,000 emails.
‘I never can imagine harassing people like this. It’s just f—– up,” said Jim Rhoades, a Republican elector from Michigan who runs a home inspection service. “I’ve lost a bunch of business’…”
As another example, Carol Joyce of Arizona, who thought her role is pretty straightforward – i.e., her state voted for Trump and hence, she will support the new President-elect – got thousands of messages trying to convince her to go another way. As she said:
“Honestly, it had an impact. I’ve seen enough funerals. I’m tired of hearing bagpipes. . . . But I signed a loyalty pledge. And that matters.”
Yes. Yes, it does matter. We’re starting to hear more and more reports of the left’s strong-arming tactics in a final desperate attempt to stop Trump from entering the White House. At no point has the Democratic Party been able to accept that they lost and ever since, they’ve been acting like a bunch of seven-year-olds.
This is just one final temper tantrum and as embarrassing as it is, it won’t do them any good. Thankfully.
