You decide to become a politician, for whatever reason, that doesn’t matter for the purpose of this article. What does matter is the vitriol and lies that have surrounded this particular election since the votes were counted, and then
Stacey Abrams (D) is a special kind of stupid though, as she was the loser of the 2016 Georgia governor’s race, by 55,000 votes, so it was not even close, yet she still claims, months later, that she was the “real” winner.
She claims that Georgia’s former Secretary of State, and current Governor, Brian Kemp (R), engaged in widespread voter suppression of black votes across Georgia which cost her the election. So 5 months AFTER she made this outrageous claim, she is still unable to produce just one of the 55,000 votes she claims were stolen from her.
“We had this little election back in 2018,” Abrams said while speaking at the National Action Network. “And despite the final tally and the inauguration and the situation we find ourselves in, I do have a very affirmative statement to make: We won.”
Abrams, who claimed without evidence that Kemp was “an architect of voter suppression,” said that she still refused to concede the election.
“I am not the governor of Georgia, remember I told you about my opponent?” Abrams continued. “You see not only was he the Secretary of state he was also the architect of voter suppression. We can work as hard as we want, we can fight rights, but if you’re fighting against the system that is designed to oppress you, sometimes you got to fight a little bit longer than you think.”
“On November 6, I said from the podium that we were going to not declare anything until every vote is counted, and on November 16, I decided to acknowledge the states of the election but I refused to concede,” Abrams continued. “Because here’s the thing concession means to say something is right and true and proper.”
“I’m a good lawyer, and I understand that the law of the land said that Brian Kemp became governor that day and I acknowledge that, but you can’t trick me into saying it was right,” Abrams concluded. “You can’t shame me into pretending what happened should have happened.”
You’d think that if indeed 55,000 black citizens were denied their right to vote that at least one of them would be willing to step forward and fight for their right, wouldn’t you? You would. I would. Anyone would. But she can’t get any of the 55,000 to step up to the plate? Not one?
Hey Abrams, you lost. Grow up, accept it, and go on with your life. But you don’t. You do what you’ve always done, you pull the race card, again, and again, and again.
