The radical left is subject to a double standard. There’s always a reason for it to be different.
An example: Time magazine published an article stating that Republicans who refer to Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y. House Minority Leader-elect) as an “election denier” are mistaken.
Jeffries is lying. We have receipts. He’s one of many Democrats who have called Donald Trump unlegitimate.
Time reports the term “election negator”, which is used by Republicans who claim that the 2020 election was stolen. They also claim they don’t have any evidence of fraud in the 2020 vote.
The author claims Jeffries is an election denier, which is misleading and “conflates many issues”. Jeffries and his party members have repeatedly denied that 2016’s presidential election results were a result of Republicans winning.
Democrats have labeled every Republican presidential election from 2000 onwards “illegitimate.” After George W. Bush’s defeat of Al Gore in 2000, Democrats declared Al Gore “selected but not elected”. Joe Biden said that Al Gore won the 2000 presidential election.
John Kerry almost challenged the 2004 Ohio election results on the basis of weak claims regarding voting machines. John Kerry claimed that Bush won the election.
Donald Trump’s surprise victory over Hillary Clinton was due to the Russian conspiracy theory. However, many Democrats believe that Trump “stole the election”.
In all cases, however the freedom of speech of false claims was not denied in the same manner as those calling for electoral irregularities in 2020.
So Time magazine’s explanation of why Jeffries and other Democrats do not vote against elections is shaky.
