Despite hundreds of witness affidavits attesting to election "irregularities," videos of suspicious behavior in some vote counting locations, thousands of ballots in the names of dead people being cast, precinct turnouts exceeding 100% of eligible voters in numerous areas, never folded mailed-in ballots, and dozens of malfunctioning vote counting machines—all of which supported the hypothesis that the presidential election may have been stolen, Democrats are currently eager to punish anyone who questions the outcome.
Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) called the raising of questions "dangerously divisive. Trump and his supporters are undermining the legitimacy of the election. It is the patriotic duty of every American to accept the results and obey their new president. Failure to do so is treason."
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), a notorious skeptic toward the idea that Joe Biden was the actual choice of a majority of the legally cast ballots, lambasted Raskin's hypocrisy, pointing out that "with a lot less cause, Raskin and other Democrats objected to the electoral votes in 2017. Then the leadership of the Democrat Party spent the entire four years of the Trump Administration making accusation after accusation—all intended to undermine the legitimacy of the 2016 election. Now, the merest expression of doubt about the 2020 election is labeled treason. These are not words to inspire unity."
Raskin acknowledged his 2017 objections, but characterized them as "a patriotic effort to spare the country from the tyranny inflicted on Americans by Donald Trump. From the very beginning of his campaign in 2015 and throughout his four years in office, Trump maligned the governmental structure erected by both major political Parties, dedicated public servants, mega-donors, and the media. It was in defense of this structure that rallied all right-thinking people to the cause of ousting the interloper by any means necessary. Now that we have the upper hand we are going to clean out all the enemies of this structure so we are never again threatened. His intemperate attack on me has put Mr. Jordan near the top of the list for remedial measures."
