    I agree that the activity you just described would constitute fascism. Where I disagree is that DJT's purpose of stopping the vote counting was to "quit while he was ahead." There was reasonable belief illegal ballots were being counted, and DJP wanted to stop until it could be verified that only legal votes were being counted.

    Trump himself addressed his voters and minions to go vote in person instead of mailing it in.
    Democrats did the opposite.

    Most Democrats did vote by mail.

    Both Georgia and PA decided to count in person votes first and then mail in votes therefore Biden is catching up because both states counted his votes last.

    Florida did the reverse, Biden led and Trump made the 4th quarter run and I do not see your people whine about that.

    But there wasn't reasonable belief. He literally spammed fake news without evidence. Even many GOP senators were like "if you are going to make these type of accusations you need to provide explict proof".

    Trump is either irresponsible or purposefully trying to rile up a bunch of angry people to show up to these ballot counting places with firearms and explosives.

    Man, what happened to Rudy Guiliani? This guy's stock was really high for how he dealt with the aftermath of 9/11. But, ever since then, he has just been on a nosedive. Now, he's nothing more than a crazed conspiracy theorist who is Trump's mouthpiece. Personally, I think he should be exiled from the United States for traitorous behavior.

    Are you sure about that? So far the courts have dismissed his campaign's legal challenges.

    BS! The secretary of state in GA handles overseeing ballot counting and has stated the following:

    Raffensberger, a Republican, said there were a number of measures in place to ensure election security. Those measures included: Absentee drop boxes being locked at 7 p.m. on election night; surveillance cameras monitoring drop boxes at all times; state monitors in the room in Fulton County during all counts and a pre-certification audit for additional confidence.

    And it won't matter what I say about AZ because the secretary of state is a Democrat.

    Look, before Trump said anything about the possible voter fraud, me (and I assume many others), on Wednesday morning found the sudden flip in WI and MI very suspicious after the the counts were stopped the night before. I don't think Trump incited as many people as you think.

    Go on. Explain the nuance in telling people they should "go back" to their "crime-infested" countries before they, as US citizens, can call for reforms in the US. Explain how it is not a direct statement that they are foreigners and are not welcome to participate in our democracy.

    He wanted the ones in Arizona to be continued to be counted . Huge coincidence that’s where the mail in was supposed to bridge the gap right?

    Esper is resigning already and Trump can’t fire Fauci because he’s a civil servant. By the time everything played out with trying to get rid of him...Trump would be out of office...and Fauci would probably still be in his.

    Each state got different rules.

    One state allows votes to arrive and viewed as legal in a timespan of 9 days after election day.

    Others allow 3 days after election.

    So it's up to the State.

    This was known by anyone, including Biden and Trump staff.

    This calling for fraud is just means to buy time and wreak chaos and anarchy.

    Biden had a lead early in FL but it flipped. Do you find that flip suspicious as well or just when the flip does not go the way you want it?

    Maybe I missed this, but when did this happen? I remember they were counting through the night, as soon as they were permitted by law, which was at closing of the polls.

    You found it sus because the bubbled media you consume made you want to think that way.

    But if you weren't in a bubbled media you would learn a few things.

    1. Biden and the Democrats heavily encouraged for almost half a year for their voters to vote by mail because of COVID.

    2. Trump for half a year urged his supporters to vote in person because he told them he doesn't trust mail in ballots.

    3. The GOP state legislators in states like Georgia and Pennsylvania purposefully created election regulation that counting mail in ballots CANNOT start after all in person ballots were counted after the polls closed. They wanted this because this would create the exact situation called the "red Mirage" where it would have the appearance of a Trump victory on election day where suddenly on the following days Biden gets a crazy flip ny closing 10 to 15 pt margins overnight. This would create a plethora of conspiracy theories fueled by Trump rheotric.



    Another example of fascist tactics.

    Trump's only chance is to create mass confusion and distrust of the process.
