Nearly a year after the 2020 Presidental Election, the Republican-led review of ballots cast in Maricopa County confirmed President Joe Biden’s victory in the election. Not only did the results verify that he won, but he won by a wider margin than previously reported. Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers (R-Dist. 4) is clearly distressed with the results of the months-long 2020 election audit in Maricopa County. After the results were announced, the senator launched a seemingly bitter and illogical rant on Twitter calling for all Red States to decertify the 2020 election and moved to do so in her state.
Rogers tweeted a post addressed to Members of the Arizona State Senate. It quoted an “undelivered speech by JFK 11/22/1963” in which the former president reportedly wrote:
For this country is moving and it must not stop. It cannot stop. For this is a time for courage and a time for challenge. Neither conformity nor complacency will do. Neither the fanatics nor the faint-hearted are needed. And our duty as a party is not to our party alone, but the Nation, and indeed, to all mankind. Our duty is not merely the preservation of political power but the preservation of peace and freedom.
Interestingly, this speech is from a Democratic President that was written on the day of his assassination. Moreover, these words were likely written for President Kennedy’s campaign rally he was to attend in Texas and meant to rally a sense of unity in the United States.
Rogers used Kennedy’s words to inflame rather than discourage the extreme division brought on by former President Donald Trump during his time in office.
On Sept. 22, 2021, hundreds of Arizonans filled the state’s Senate chambers, and a large crowd outside watched the audit reveal unfold via live stream on a big screen. Then, after the Senate hearing was over, Rogers emerged from the building and lied to the crowd, “the findings confirm thousands of fraudulent votes were counted in November.”
During her speech, Rogers haughtily unveiled a letter reportedly signed by 41 legislators from 15 different states. Despite the big lie being disproven, the missive calls for “a nationwide audit and decertification of every state where fraudulent votes changed the outcome of the election.”
The data uncovered by the Cyber Ninjas should have been the point when the conspiracy theorists learned they were wrong about the “biggest crime of the century.” On the contrary, it seems to have stoked the flames higher.
For example, Arizona’s conservative newspaper, The Gateway Pundit, published a list of “discrepancies” uncovered by the Cyber Ninjas, all of which have been exposed as myths. Overall, they claim over 299,133 ballots were cast fraudulently. As a result, the author insists that Arizona must decertify the 2020 election.
The comment thread demonstrates the extent of the big lie has become part of their belief system. In response to a sensible question seeking clarification to a previous comment, mij61 wrote the following:
Checked and verified by Leftists. Nowhere in time has their been 60% plus ballots adjudicated .Historically less than 1% of ballots in the US have been adjudicated. See THE PROBLEM!!!!!
You won’t because your brain is damaged because of liberalism. It’ a mental disorder.
Get back to your BLM/Antifa gig, COMMIE.
