Excerpt: "Nobody 'officially' losing by less than ten percent, or while winning the exit polls, should walk away."

WARNING to DEMOCRATS! Do NOT Concede!!

By Bob Fitrakis and Harvey Wasserman, Reader Supported News

onald Trump is in power in large part because Democrats have repeatedly conceded elections they really won. On Tuesday, that MUST change.

Anyone deemed a close loser MUST fight. Every tally must be contested, every denial challenged, all missing ballots found, every provisional ballot honored.

What could bury our democracy? Stripped voter rolls, erased precincts, lies about where to vote, voting stations moved out of town, intimidated voters, impossible-to-get ID, street addresses required on reservations, lies about eligibility, unsent absentee ballots, suppressed registrations, hacked electronic machines, hidden source codes, trashed provisionals. It’s all been happening since at least 2000.

Highly qualified teams of election protection specialists all over the country (www.freepress.org and many more; the state and national Democratic parties have hotlines) are ready to fight.

Nobody “officially" losing by less than ten percent, or while winning the exit polls, should walk away.

Tell your candidates: DO NOT CONCEDE!!

Anyone working on this election MUST contact your candidate and DEMAND an “I will not concede pledge” BEFORE Tuesday.

Why?

In Florida 2000, Governor Jeb Bush stripped at least 94,000 mostly black/Hispanic voters from registration rolls. Electronic machines flipped the count. The infamous “Brooks Brothers Terror Mob” (supported by Brett Kavanaugh) stopped the recount, which the Supreme Court buried.

Rightful winner Al Gore then killed a Congressional challenge to Florida’s Electoral College delegation, handing George W. Bush the presidency.

In 2004, John Kerry conceded Ohio with 250,000 votes uncounted while officially losing by less than 120,000. VP candidate John Edwards demanded he not concede. But at noon, Kerry handed W a second term, then went wind surfing.

Hillary Clinton beat Trump by some 3 million votes but ignored massive irregularities in Michigan,Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Florida. She, Gore, Kerry and the corporate Democrats have done little to stop election theft or end the Electoral College, which could re-enshrine Trump in 2020.

Democrats did not scrutinize six US Senate races in 2014 and 2016 in which they won exit polls and/or lost by very tight official margins. Those seats let Trump control the judiciary, cut taxes for the super-rich, and so much more.

This year, scores of federal, state and local offices will be stolen … unless YOU and your candidates finally fight.

Until every registration is defended, every ballot counted, every electron scrutinized … Tell your candidates: DO NOT CONCEDE!!!!

Comments   

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

This is the best advice I've read in a long while. The DNC must put up a fund for contesting elections where there is probable cause to suspect vote rigging.

If all suspicious election results are contested and taken to court, maybe over time this will make election rigging a less productive tactic for republicans.

Good for Wasserman and Fitrakis!

But what about the DNC? Are they giving this invaluable advice to their candidates? Or are they going to assume once again that it's the Republicans turn and just can't be helped. We can only wait and see.

A-BLEDEPIN' *MEN*!!!

Especially the references to the presidential elections of 2000, 2004, and 2016.

But I have to ask: How is it that this vital and clarion advisory, for which RSN is apparently the original publisher, and which was evidently written prior to today ("Anyone working on this election MUST contact your candidate and DEMAND an 'I will not concede pledge' BEFORE Tuesday.") is seen only on election day?

My initial reaction was, "Why has this not been posted every day for the past two weeks?" After a moment's thought it changed to, "Why has this not been posted every day for two weeks prior to every election since 2004?" Granted Gore did not concede on election night (I had not heard that Kerry conceded at noon--truth or fiction?). But he had a very strong case (as the Slimes said long after the fact, "only if all the votes had been counted") and asked politely in lieu of putting up a fight for what was obviously a case of a stolen election.

Sometimes it seems that it's grudging (if even that) admiration for the Republican agenda that keeps Democratic politicians sitting on their hands (instead of fighting back).

The Dems have gotten really bad, since they actually need to be warned for NOT wanting to serve in offices they contended for. Note that I didn't say FIGHT for! There are far too few Bernies and Lizs--and too $%^& many Steny Hoyers and Joe Bidens.
