Josh Hawley scorched Democrats in today’s hearing for lecturing Republicans who have concerns about the integrity of our elections, suggesting they shut up and accept Biden as president:
The actual scorching only goes on for the first few minutes of the video, but Hawley’s point is that Democrats went on and on for the last four years about how Trump was only elected because he colluded with Russia, which we all know was nothing but a hoax.
Hawley said he was just yesterday talking to normal, everyday Missourians who all felt like the election had been rigged and that their votes were disenfranchised by the fraud that took place in other states. He says they are not going to shut up about election fraud and they shouldn’t:
After four years of that, being told that the last election was fake and that Donald Trump wasn’t really elected and that Russia intervened – after four years that, now these same people are told ‘You just sit down and shut up; if you have any concerns about election integrity you’re a nutcase and you should shut up.’
Well I tell you what. 74 million Americans are not going to shut up and telling them that their views don’t matter and that their concerns don’t matter, that they should just be quiet, is not a recipe for success in this country. It’s not a recipe for the unity that I hear now the other side is suddenly so interested in after years and years of trying to delegitimize President Donald Trump.
So suffice it to say that I’m not too keen on lectures about how Missourians and others who voted for President Trump, and now have some concerns about fraud, about integrity, about compliance with the law, should just be quiet and that they are somehow not patriotic if they raise these questions. It’s absolutely unbelievable.
Hawley nailed it. I don’t need to add anything to that, except to say Republicans in the Senate and the House should not rest until every bit of the election fraud that we’ve all just witnessed is exposed, so that state legislatures can stop this madness from happening again.
