Everyone is an election denier
CNN denies the existence of Democratic election deniers
It seems odd that in a piece about “election deniers,” CNN would somehow leave out the fact that in the 21st-century the Democratic Party has largely claimed that every presidential election they’ve lost has been stolen. It’s true of the 2000 election, the 2004 election, and the 2016 election. It seems more odd that they could somehow entirely fail to even mention one of the most prominent “election deniers” in the country who is the Democratic nominee for governor in Georgia, Stacy Abrams.
So it’s less a guide of “election deniers in midterm races” than it is a guide to the Republicans Daniel Dale hates a little bit more than the other Republicans he still hates for simply being Republicans. And don’t get me started on “Facts First.”
Dale and CNN’s role here is not to report on election deniers per se, though that’s what they’re pretending to do, but to give the people reading this the impression that only Republicans deny election results or claim that elections that they lose were unfair or outright stolen. The reality is that both parties do this and to suggest otherwise is insane. Here’s Stacy Abrams, who ran for governor of Georgia as a Democrat in 2018 and is running again in 2022, claiming that the election she lost in 2018 was not fair and that the election was illegitimate as such.
I don’t know what the results of today’s election will be, but it looks like the GOP is in for a good night and by all indications should take control of at least the House of Representatives if not the entire Congress. Regardless, whichever party loses will spend the next several years claiming the election was unfair and was stolen from them while simultaneously claiming that only the other side would dare to question the legitimacy of our holy American democracy.
