Keeping in line with Democrat efforts to label their Republican counterparts as “threats to Democracy,” a Democrat congressman is arguing that anyone who doubts the legitimacy of the 2020 election is without a doubt a “fascist.”
Congressman Jamie Raskin (D-MD) spoke out in defense of President Joe Biden, saying that refusing to accept that the senile old man somehow secured the most votes of any president in American history is one of the “hallmarks” of a fascist party.
The dangerous attempt to slander the GOP and its supporters comes after Biden peddled the claim that Republicans have embraced “semi-fascism.”
Critics hammered Biden over his divisive lies which were later intensified when he accused “MAGA Republicans” of being a threat to American democracy.
Raskin, meanwhile, doubled down on the president’s hate-filled comments.
Alluding to President Donald Trump’s efforts to point out that the 2020 election was clearly fraudulent, Raskin suggested that this simple act made Trump and his supporters sponsors of fascism.
“Two of the hallmarks of a fascist political party are, one, they don’t accept the results of elections that don’t go their way, and two, they embrace political violence. And I think that’s why President Biden was right to sound the alarm this week,” he added.
Funny enough, Raskin himself has a history of claiming that elections had been stolen. The Democrat claimed in January of 2017 that the 2016 election was rigged — being among those who argued that the votes cast by electors from the state of Florida should not stand.
Raskin has claimed that the Democrat’s attempt to argue election fraud is somehow different because no one stormed the Capitol – referencing the January 6 protest which has been used to unjustly target Republicans.
Back in 2000, Raskin also objected to the presidential election, stating in a video shared by the Republican National Committee that former President George W. Bush had effectively been appointed by the Supreme Court rather than elected by the American people.
Serving as further evidence as to just how hypocritical these Democrats really are, Raskin was certainly not alone in his many claims of fraud.
Former Secretary of State — and failed presidential candidate — Hillary Clinton also argued that the 2016 election was “stolen” from her.
Still, it seems as if the Democrats are determined to move forward with this messaging, and their allies in the media have joined in on the efforts.
MSNBC host Joy Reid said on her show that Republicans are upset because President Joe Biden “named” their fascism.
Reid said, “The former president was also in the Keystone state this holiday weekend, speaking at a rally for Pennsylvania’s MAGA Republican candidate for governor, Doug Mastriano, and Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz. Trump basically went full fascist, denouncing the FBI as vicious monsters despite recent actual attempts by his fans to attack federal law enforcement and calling President Biden an enemy of the state. In his Philadelphia speech, the most divisive speech ever delivered by an American president. Pretty rich coming from Donald Trump.”
She added, “… So, I’m really not sure what the republicans are all upset about, other than the fact that it was named.”
