This week, there’s a gubernatorial election in Virginia between Democrat Terry McAuliffe and Republican Glenn Youngkin and some right-wingers in the state are already preparing for a defeat. Even though the race is tight and Youngkin may surely pull off the victory, some conservatives are preparing their excuses if he doesn’t win by saying Democrats are up to no good. Case in point, Republican Virginia State Senator Amanda Chase told Real America’s Voice this week, “I know how Democrats are cheating and that information has been given to the Youngkin campaign. . . . I’m already getting reports today that people are going to vote and they have never done a mail-in ballot ever and yet when they went to cast their ballot they were told ‘no, we’ve already mailed you a mail-in ballot’ and so we’re already looking into that.” This obviously is not actually evidence of error, fraud, or Democrats doing anything in particular. But this is standard operating procedure for the right now. Donald Trump, anticipating losses in 2016 and 2020, warned about voter fraud and a “rigged election” and Larry Elder did the same ahead of this year’s gubernatorial recall election in California. Apparently, this is going to be just what Republicans do moving forward and it is incredibly dangerous for the preservation of American democracy.
