Remember that the Left is one that is sanctimoniously over the top for anti-bullying in schools. But when it comes to their Agenda and what THEY want, especially Hillary, the mindless hoards are completely absent from this position.
They also went absolutely ape-shit ballistic about Trump “not accepting” the results of the election, in their minds. But when THEY lost their rigged election they have gone ape-shit about not accepting the election results. 🙂
They also are the sanctimonious ones who bully people into “tolerance” and “diversity”.
There is a campaign coordinated via social media to bombard Electoral College members with emails and phone calls to try and persuade them to change their vote and elect Hillary Clinton president.
The Wisconsin recount, that is going to cost taxpayer’s money, yielded 1 vote so far. Only like 40,000 or more to go!! 🙂
Some of the communications have been ugly and threatening, say several electors.
Some state laws call for fines against “faithless electors,” while others open them to possible felony charges, although the National Archives says no elector has ever been prosecuted for failing to vote as pledged. In North Carolina, a faithless elector’s vote is canceled, and he or she must immediately resign and be replaced.
Layne Bangerter and Melinda Smyser, two of Idaho’s four Republican electors, said they have been flooded with emails, telephone calls and Facebook messages from strangers urging them to reconsider their vote.
“It’s just not going to work,” Bangerter said. “I hope it dies down, but I don’t see that happening.”
The volume and tone of the messages caught the attention of Idaho’s secretary of state, who urged the public to remain civil as electors prepare to cast their ballots on Dec. 19 while meeting in their states.
Republican Party officials in Georgia and Michigan said their electors also have been bombarded with messages, and Iowa reported increased public interest in obtaining contact information for electors.
Michael Banerian, 22, one of Michigan’s 16 Republican electors, said he has received death threats from people who do not want him to vote for Trump. But he said he is undeterred.
“It’s mostly just a lot of angry people who don’t completely understand how the process works,” said Banerian, a political science major at Oakland University.
P. Bret Chiafalo, a Democratic elector in Washington state, said he and a small group of other electors from the party are working to contact their Republican counterparts and ask them to vote for any GOP candidate besides Trump, preferably Mitt Romney or John Kasich.
Under the Constitution, the House — currently under Republican control — decides the presidency if no candidate reaches the required electoral vote majority. House members choose from the top three contenders.
This isn’t the first time electors have faced pressure to undo the results of Election Day.
Carole Jean Jordan, a GOP elector from Florida in 2000, recalled the “unbelievably ugly” aftermath of the recount battle between George W. Bush and then-vice president Al Gore, a dispute that ended with the U.S. Supreme Court leaving Bush’s slim margin intact and handing him the presidency.
The chance that the grass roots campaign to upend the results of the election will succeed are about as close to zero as you can get.
But when has rational thought and logic ever stop a Liberal when it concerns what THEY WANT? Screw you, buddy…
The mindless hoards are just that, mindless.
But the significance here are the threats and ugliness being perpetrated by Democrats to bully the electors into changing their votes. For a party that went ballistic when Donald Trump mentioned he might not accept the results of the election, the hypocrisy of demanding that the Electoral College nullify the votes of 60 million people who voted for Trump is breathtaking.
The electors will meet December 19 in Washington, D.C. to cast their ballots and officially make Donald Trump the president. But between now and then, Republican electors will have to endure a gauntlet of hate and threats that is being organized by the Democratic party. (AT)
And the Alt-Left Media. (the alt-right is evil, but the alt-left is not, of course.)
Last week, social media supporters of Hillary Clinton passed around a spreadsheet listing the names and personal information of Electoral College voters. Helped along by news sites like Buzzfeed, Clintonites made hundreds of calls to EC delegates, hoping to persuade them to switch their vote to Clinton when the EC meets this month.
“At first everyone was kinda enchanted by it,” one Texas elector told local media. “Now all the electors are starting to get beaten down. There are some electors who have been threatened with harm or with death.”
In Georgia, things got bad enough that the Secretary of State issued a statement warning that Clinton supporters who harass Electors over the phone—including anyone who encouraged the practice —could be subject to dire consequences. In Arizona, Electors reported as many as 8,000 calls, some of which, they say, became “hateful.”
“They demonize me, they call me a homophobic, an isolationist, a bigot, a misogynist, and an anti-Semite, which is interesting because I’m Jewish,” one Arizona delegate told the Arizona Republic.
One Michigan Elector, Michigan Young Republicans Chairman Mike Banerian, was forced to file a police report after his voice mail filled up with terrifying messages. “You have people saying ‘you’re a hateful bigot, I hope you die,’ ” Banerian told the Detroit News.
“I’ve had people talk about shoving a gun in my mouth and blowing my brains out. And I’ve received dozens and dozens of those emails. Even the non-threatening-my-life emails are very aggressive.”
Banerian says he’s “not afraid,” and that he also won’t change his vote. Michigan, like many states, requires its slate of Electors to vote the way the state votes, and so while Clinton supporters might have a chance at persuading Electors in some other states, in Michigan, they’d be out of luck even without the death threats.
In Texas, they’re not backing down either. Elector Alex Kim says he’s been responding to the threats with a very simple message: “You may all go to hell, and I shall go to Texas.” (Heat Street)
