Hillary Clinton Blames Her Defeat on ‘Voter Suppression’ Conspiracy Theory

Posted on | September 19, 2019 | 1 Comment

The belief that Republicans engage in “voter suppression” has been widespread among Democrats since 2000, because of the contested Florida result in the Bush-Gore election. It resurfaced in 2004, when John Kerry lost to Bush, but then rather mysteriously disappeared in 2006, when Democrats won control of Congress, and did not return for another decade, during which Barack Obama was elected president twice. It is only when Democrats lose elections that the “voter suppression” conspiracy theory emerges from the fever swamps of the Left.

Last year, Stacey Abrams lost the Georgia gubernatorial election by more than 50,000 votes and yet contends, on the basis of no evidence whatsoever, that she was the victim of “voter suppression.”

See, those Georgia Republicans are white and Abrams is black and therefore “voter suppression” is RAAAAACIST! And the people who give money to Democrats believe this because you must be intensely stupid to give money to Democrats. Anyone who believed Stacey Abrams could win Georgia was a special kind of stupid, and speaking of which, let’s talk about Hillary and Wisconsin:

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Tuesday said that voter suppression aimed at keeping women and people of color from the polls has brought the U.S. to a “crisis in democracy.”
Speaking at George Washington University, Clinton accused Republicans of rolling back voter protections and employing tactics aimed at keeping racial minorities from the polls. . . .
“We are witnessing a deliberate and ongoing effort to undermine the integrity of our elections and silence millions of Americans … particularly women, the elderly and people of color,” Clinton said.
“It’s no accident,” she continued. “It’s in service to their larger goals of obtaining and keeping power.”
Clinton said that in 2016, 200,000 people in Wisconsin were turned away from the polls.
Clinton has often faced criticism for not visiting Wisconsin during the 2016 campaign.
President Trump narrowly won the state, becoming the first Republican candidate in decades to carry The Badger State.
“Officials [in Wisconsin] made every excuse in the books to prevent people from voting,” Clinton said.
“You can run the best campaign and have the best plans and get the nomination and win the popular vote and you can lose the Electoral College and therefore the election,” she added.

This is at least the third time Clinton has claimed voters were “turned away from the polls” in Wisconsin in 2016, a claim that is demonstrably false — PolitiFact rated it a “pants on fire” lie — and yet she keeps repeating it because this rationalization is necessary to maintain the fraudulent scam of Democrats getting money from stupid people.

Ace has a great story about Jake Tapper, relevant to this topic.
