We’ve been told for two years now that questioning the results of an election was treason. There are apparently a bunch of Democrat traitors on Twitter because they’re convinced the election was rigged against Beto O’Rourke. (It wasn’t. He’s just a loser.)

Generally, when we’re told people aren’t allowed to claim an election was rigged, we’re supposed to ignore Democrats in 2000 … 2004 … 2016, Hillary Clinton, Stacey Abrams, Hillary Clinton claiming 2024 has already been stolen, and so on. In fact, 2020 appears to be the only election you can’t question.

In this editor’s opinion, questioning election results is perfectly American. In fact, you don’t want to live in the places where you’re not allowed to question election results. We pick up. We move on. It’s what we do.

Regardless, questioning election results is suddenly in-bounds again, at least for Democrats.

Do you believe Lupe Valdez got 30,000 more votes in El Paso than @BetoORourke did? Well, to accept these election returns that’s what you have to accept.

I do not.

We believe it. Beto is a loser. You do your thing though, Paul.

Both Texas and Florida have some pretty strange numbers and both were very against any sort of monitors.

Dun dun DUUUUUUNNNNNN!!!

Is this the real Paul or did his account get hijacked too? I see zero difference between these statements and those from whom we despise — Kari Lake, Doug Mastriano, DJT…..what the hell?

Somebody didn’t get the memo. LOL.

We need to think about the Cruz/Beto Senate race. Did Trump send fixers to that race too? Cruz won and declared that Texas is 3 points from turning blue. So how could Beto, with Obama size crowds, loose this race? El Paso? Uvalde?

‘We’re gonna need more tinfoil, fellas!’

There’s no way I believe that. The crowds, the energy, everything, has been electric on the ground, at rallies, door knocking, etc for @BetoORourke . I don’t pretend to be an election expert, by any means, but it does not make sense.

We’d just like to point out how nearly identical these complaints are to what you might hear from a conservative voter who was uneasy about 2020. Only one of them makes you a Nazi, apparently.

No effin way. There’s no way Beto did that bad. I also don’t think Marcus Flowers really did that bad either.

Have you seen Beto though? LOL.

John Adams does have some experience with rigged elections, eh Andrew Jackson?

It’s been reported multiple times in 2018 and now again that the voting machines in Tx were swapping votes from Beto to Cruz and from Beto to Abbott, that’s why R’s use these ES&S machines.

Nobody’s told these poor people you’re not allowed to talk about voting machines!

The more I read about what happened to @BetoORourke, the more I’m beginning to believe that R’s were up to some real shenanigans in Harris County where a lot of the blue vote is! Is anyone taking a hard look at this? And UNOHOO admitted fixing the Fl elections? C’mon man! 😡💙✅

Florida was rigged too! So much treason.

I think the Abbott Vs Beto votes need to be recounted. The Fact Beto was already in the lead and Texas Supreme Court stopped the second half of the Harris county votes to me is suspicious. RT if you think Texas needs to recount the votes for Abbott Vs Beto! pic.twitter.com/pOsilQKOc5

‘Retweet for literal election denier fascism!’

Losing sucks. Question away, folks. It’s not evil, but you better bring proof, or it’s mostly just complaining. Still, we all have the right to do it. Don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise. At a minimum, wary eyes and skepticism will keep bad actors at bay in our elections for a long time to come.
