In light of the lawsuits being filed against the Trump Train which almost ran a Biden-Harris bus off the interstate in Hays County in October 2020, the words of a Michigan Republican ring close to home.
Congressman Peter Meijer, who was elected in 2020, spoke out this week against what is being spewed by the One America News network. Meijer called the message “obscene and dangerous.”
The One America News (OAN) is still calling the November 2020 election, in which President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris were elected by more than 7 million votes in the popular vote, a fraud and a stolen election.
Furthermore, OAN insinuates that those “involved in undermining the election” and causing a coup in the United States should be executed. “What are the consequences for traitors who meddled with our sacred Democratic process and tried to steal power by taking away the voices of the American people? What happens to them? Well, in the past, America had a very good solution for dealing with such traitors … execution.”
The OAN talking head calmly talks about executions, despite the fact that, in Michigan, an investiation of the 2020 vote concluded there was no widespread or systemic voter fraud. And, yes, that investigation was Republican-led.
Investigations across the U.S. are showing no systemic voter fraud in the General Election. The allegations that the election was stolen has been debunked.
Basically, Rep. Meijer says that the continuation of the false claims of fraud just adds fuel to “fraud” flame, and may result in more blood spread. In a tweet, Meijer said, “Let me be clear: more people will die bc of craven propaganda like this. … When there are no arrests bc this is all a lie they will take matters into their own hands.”
Were there not enough deaths when our nation’s Capitol was overrun by rioters on Jan. 6, 2021? Does the testimony of the police who were there – in the middle of the riot – not mean anything?
The blame for the riots is landing at former President Donald Trump’s feet, as those who participated say they were following what they thought were orders from Trump.
They were just doing what Trump was implying, or so that’s the excuse being given. And that’s the fuel that caused the near wreck in Hays County.
The Trump Train through Hays County which tried to stop the Biden-Harris bus was scary. Elected officials were on board the bus and called to local governmental entities for help. The local police and Sheriff’s departments said that a crime had to have been committed for them to assist or that the Democrats should have called ahead to let them know they were going to be stopping in Hays County.
Since when is it okay to start trying to stop traffic or to try to push a vehicle off the road? If a local driver took it into his or her head to start driving crazy on IH-35 right now, they – the driver, not the target of the driver – would be pulled over immediately.
It’s for safety.
And safety is what we need right now. We need people to understand that what is being reported about the elections is not fake news – the election was won fair and square. All of these investigations are showing that the election was fairly won. Let’s move on, stop this harassment.
Because if we don’t stop this, the “crazies” will start calling for blood, claiming they have a right to make these “executions” and that’s not something we want to see in the United States.
