Twitter Election Fraud ‘Dispute’ Hypocrisy Extends to Treatment of Guns

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “For years the Dems have been preaching how unsafe and rigged our elections have been,” President Donald Trump tweeted Friday. “Now they are saying what a wonderful job the Trump Administration did in making 2020 the most secure election ever. Actually this is true, except for what the Democrats did. Rigged Election!”

“This claim about election fraud is disputed,” Twitter moderators claimed, linking to what a reasonable person would expect would be proof of falsehood. Instead, what they gave us was a general claim that “experts” say “Voter fraud of any kind is exceedingly rare,” crediting that insight to The Associated Press and Reuters.

Left intentionally unaddressed were the specifics for disputing report after report of “voting irregularities,” making the knee-jerk Twitter designation not only a logical fallacy but a deception designed to make readers discount concerns and instead embrace the all-pervasive, media-parroted narrative that such concerns are “baseless.”

Perhaps some are (I’ve speculated myself that some rumors may be started to discredit everything those who fall for them say), and perhaps some aren’t.  But you don’t get to just dismiss serious allegations bolstered by evidence and testimony by saying you disagree. At least “progressives” don’t seem to think you should when they presume guilt and ruin lives with hashtags like “#BelieveWomen” (unless the person being accused is Joe Biden).

Picking AP and Reuters as the arbiters of credibility and trust is a stretch of its own. You can see for yourself that AP made a factually incorrect assertion about the election that was presented as straight news, yet you won’t see a Twitter dispute warning on its White House reporter’s tweet. The fact that both “news services” present any number of instances where gun owners could point out glaring lies of omission and outright propaganda presented as “news” shows the last thing we can expect is for them to act as honest brokers.

This is the reason I began referring to what I initially called Authorized Journalists as Fourth Estate Fifth Columnists and, of late, the DSM (Duranty/Streicher Media).

Besides, to paraphrase Bill Clinton committing perjury, “It depends upon what the meaning of the term ‘exceedingly rare’ is.” So what if it’s rare? Granted millions voted and most followed the rules. That doesn’t mean fraud didn’t happen. All you need are a few instances by a handful of the right people to make a huge difference in election results.

Do you know what else is “exceedingly rare”? Murders with so-called “assault weapons.”

“In 2012, only 322 people were murdered with any kind of rifle, F.B.I. data shows,” an exceedingly rare, honest analysis in The New York Times, of all places, revealed. How many of those fit the inconsistent definitions of “assault weapon” used by various states and gun-grabbing interests are unknown because such statistics are not known, but the obvious answer is a fraction of the 322, out of thousands of homicides.

Yet when you see a media outlet or a gun control group tweeting out their latest press release masked as news hysterically demanding semiautomatics and standard capacity magazines be banned and confiscated because they’re “weapons of war,” you see no “This claim is disputed” warning.  Ditto for when prohibitionists present themselves as promoting “commonsense gun safety.” Or over fake studies about “gun owners” that conflate them with criminal gun possessors or lie about “developed countries” by leaving out ones that don’t support the script.

That Twitter controls the conversation, so that “disputes” are one-sided and work against non-“progressive” messaging is, unfortunately, to be expected. Co-founder Jack Dorsey made no secret of his personal and corporate hospitality years back when, in his capacity as CEO of the Square payment processor, he changed the seller’s agreement to forbid “payments in connection with … sales of (i) firearms, firearm parts or hardware, and ammunition; or (ii) weapons and other devices designed to cause physical injury.”

Twitter, the DSM, and the Democrats have an agenda and they’re not going to let anything get in their way. That’s one thing no one who believes in truth over everything else could possibly dispute.

Perhaps, instead of everyone using the term ‘fraud’ everyone should be using the term ‘subversion’ — these evil people who seem Hell-bent on destroying our Republic are subversives.

Or Saboteurs.

Either way, they should be prosecuted.

Like most of this foolishness, the more of these labels they stick on comments slowly become diluted to the point of having no meaning.
Just like the bantering of the leftists crying racist, homophobe, etc. getting to the point of having no power anymore. People are not listening to the blah blah blah…

Yeah right, the “Experts” say. Don’t try to piss down my back and tell me it’s raining.
Never underestimate the Democrats ability to cheat.

The “Experts” want you to wear a mask too. It’s not a mask, it’s a muzzle.

Proof positive it was rigged is the fact that AZ went BLUE despite my only knowing a handful of Dims personally out of the hundreds of people I know…………And that AZ supposedly went BLUE?????? Where did that come from???? If I had a pretty narrow circle, still knowing that none of them voted Biden in where the State of AZ supposedly had more than 1 out of 2 vote Dim’O’cRat? There’s got to be some imbalance for anyone to believe that the count was fair and correct. NO WAY IN HELL!!!!!

I agree with everything Dershowitz said except his last paragraph. I wouldn’t let that retarded commie SOB be afforded any transition team cooperation until he is actually the Real President Elect.

i have heard multiple times that this election could possibly go to being settled by the 12th Amendment. Can some of you scholars with a better understanding of this explain this, giving us a sense of how that could come about?

Very short version. Electoral college proclaims a winner and one contests, or electoral cannot decide. It goes to the house of representatives where each state has one vote who will be president. Currently we, (rep) have 37 states out of fifty so Trump wins unless you are obummer, then we have 37 out of 52. Trump still wins.
Hope this helps.

Yes, very helpful.

Sadly, while we stand with Trump, most in the GOP don’t.

Since the late 40s we have been fighting the CRBs (Commie Rat Bastards). The problem is between indoctrination in our schools, colleges, and leftist rhetoric from the so called MSM, there are people that have actually embraced Marxism, to the point we now have elected the CRBs to government offices. When I was young, out of wedlock children was shameful, abortion, divorce, and adultery was never spoken of in polite company. The CRBs have come along ways since the 40s, and the sheeple continue to graze unaware. I fear this will continue, at least until there is no longer anything… Read more »

Wow – you really have an optimistic view.

Communists have been working their agenda in the U.S. since the 1800s.

Communists have held government positions since the early 1900s. Franklin Roosevelt, the worst president in American history, took office on March 4, 1933.

Lyndon Johnson, the second worst president in American history, took office on November 22, 1963.

You think it’s just now that we have CRBs in office?

Where’s Joe Mccarthy when you need him.

The CRBs have all the time in the world, just like terrorists, they only have to get it right one time. A physical fight is looming in the future, be prepared
and arm up.

Or, meet with people in real life and vote pro 2nd Amendment people into office who believe in smaller government.

Regarding the definition of the media’s definition of assault rifle, I remember reading a story of a guy that shot up a planned parenthood with an SKS. The media narrative promptly dubded it an assault rifle. I was reading the article for one of my classes, so I made sure to post a picture of what an SKS was.

If the Communists – er, I mean the Democrats – are allowed to get away with stealing this election, they will rig the system and there will never again be a fair and legitimate election in this county. Welcome to the new Soviet Union.

Every citizen should be outraged that some election authorities did a ballot mail out when ballots were not requested by the voter, that is just opening the door to massive fraud.
The social media platforms and the news media in general hates President Trump and they were determined to do their part in getting him out of office, whether it was banning stories, comments, or just turning a blind eye to the truth to what was happening.
Our country is headed to a very bad place with this type of actions not being stopped by the congress.

“…making 2020 the most secure election ever.”
“This claim about election fraud is disputed”

So Facebook doesn’t think this was the most secure election ever? I guess I will have to agree with Facebook on that.

@John Dunlap – You said 322 murders with rifles. I thought that was the number of deaths from rifle fire, including accidents, suicides and justified shootings (by LEO or otherwise). While I wouldn’t expect accidents or suicides to be all that numerous as overall firearm accidental deaths are rare and pistols are easier for suicide. However cops carry ARs for a reason and ARs are a popular home defense tool, so would expect self defense to account for a larger fraction than the ~15% for all firearms. If I’m right, this strengthens your already strong argument – even if it… Read more »
