Letter: FW Lillis, Leesburg

Editor: This is in response to a letter sent by Del. Dave LaRock to his constituents urging us to join him in DC on Jan. 6 to celebrate the Trump victory and insure he is the next president. 

Not being a Proud Boy and not looking for a rumble, I asked to be excused. And accepting the popular vote and the state-by-state certification of their electors, I see no need for such a rally or the charade promised by Republicans in Congress.

We are a democracy and the people decide who wins and loses, not legions of lawyers, armed militias or spineless pandering elected “leaders.”

One reason we are an exceptional democracy is the peaceful transfer of power. The game being played by Republicans since the election denies those truths and assaults the foundations of our form of government. Through widespread voter suppression and creating doubts about elections, they are doing work once done by Putin alone. He now has allies in this country.

To assert that there was widespread fraud, it would be handy to have proof. Or evidence. Courts across the country, local, federal and supreme, have looked at the cases brought to them and universally dismissed those cases. Anyone can claim anything and make a great case on the internet; in court, judges like facts. Proof. Evidence. Perhaps, all those courts missed something. Or perhaps, they are part of the vast left wing “deep state.”

In any event, I shall TiVo the rally for later viewing

    Did they dismiss the cases over the merit or because of standing. If the evidence is not allowed to be heard you keep fighting in every court possible. In past election democrats have used lawyers to fight results of the popular vote. There is no excuse for fraud.

    There is no possible way a senile, woman groping, old man who demands the ability to instruct black people to the standards to which they must vote, and how to think, won more votes than Barack Obama, or Hillery Clinton. No way.

    The writer may comfort their delusions by suggesting there’s a Russian behind every tree, but reasonable people know it is impossible for this dinosaur to have been more popular than Obama. No way.

    Democrats and their allies have prevented the evidence from being brought forward at every turn. Yes, let’s bring forward all the evidence for the public to view because the evidence is overwhelming. The Democrat Party took its persistent voting fraud to a whole new level. Trump won. Big time.

    I well remember 2016 and how I felt when Donald Trump lost the popular vote by 3+ million votes but still ended up as our President. I was sick and I had to hope he’d somehow grow into the job. Didn’t happen, of course, the only thing he grew was ever more corrupt. When 2020 rolled around and Donald Trump lost by 6+ million votes, I thought well, at least now America can turn the page and move on. Sad to see that some can’t grasp the fact that elections have consequences and one consequence is that the loser concedes and someone new takes office. That’s how America has worked up until the present. Shame on those who’d rather destroy our democracy, disenfranchising millions of voters, if that’s what it takes to hold onto power. Double shame on elected representatives that fan those flames. They should do the honorable thing at last and resign. Then they can gather in the streets with the misfits who don’t understand what being an American is all about.

      Did you take offense with the nation-wide protests in late 2016 into early 2017 which sought to overturn the lawful results of that election?

      Or is there a double standard?

      • 2021-01-05 at 7:39 pm

        Not sure what point you’re making. Of course people can take to the streets to express their displeasure on most anything. That’s very American. Having elected members of the Congress say they won’t accept an election because they feel, despite any evidence, that it’s not a fair vote is crazy and bad for the country. But I realize if you live in the Trump media bubble you have no idea what truth, proof or facts actually look like.

      • 2021-01-06 at 8:41 am

        Sidestep much?

        Did you, or did you not. take offense at the endless “protestations” of the 2016 presidential election? INCLUDING members of Congress?

        Be careful, your double standard is showing….

    • 2021-01-05 at 4:21 pm

      “… they can gather in the streets with the misfits who don’t understand what being an American is all about.”

      Dissent has an expiration date LL? People who disagree are no longer Americans? Is that what you’re selling?

      “I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration, somehow you’re not patriotic, and we should stand up and say, “We are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration!” — Hillary Clinton.

    Embarrassing letter.

    The writer is against assessing the fairness and integrity of the Nov. 3 election. Why would the writer be against examining six dimensions of alleged irregularities in key battleground states?

    FYI. Cases dismissed on standing means that the evidence was never considered by the court. You may want to brush up on the legal stuff when you are regurgitating democratic talking points.

    How the GOP morons can even think there is a chance that Agent Orange has a chance to turn this around. He LOST LOST LOST. Get over it. Smart,intelligent Americans saw the vast difference between Biden and Trump and voted with their hearts, souls and mind. How can anyone who can walk and chew gum, can even fathom that the lies, fabrications and made up facts by Trump is worthy of him coming back. He is toast…done, stick a fork in him. Now he can play all the golf he wants, since he was too busy to golf while in office, now he can!!

    And maybe since he will have time to travel, he can go to the border and check on the wall and thank the Mexicans for cutting checks to fund the wall. And on his way home, he can swing by the “swamp” that he helped renovate and increase its size!!

    It is amazing to me that anyone with half a brain can support Trump…but that is the operative word, his supporters truly only have half a brain.

    LoveLoudoun clearly doesn’t understand why we have an Electoral College- so two states (NY and CA) do not determine who is elected POTUS every four years. I’m sure LL would love to do away with the EC since both those states are lean very heavily toward his or her party, but what if they didn’t? What if the situation were reversed and NY and CA were Republican, and his/her candidate won the lost the popular vote, but won the election? Suddenly the EC would be very valuable. I’m sure you’ve spent the last 4 years crying “Not my President” and all the other nonsense your party has been crying about, but now that you have gotten what you want, you think everything should be great and everyone should not question anything. Oh, and please stop with the “more corruption” stuff- every time the Dems investigated Trump, the only corruption they found was from THEIR party!

    • 2021-01-06 at 2:29 pm

      How many voters do you think live in NY and California? Check, you might be surprised to discover it’s roughly 25 million (of all parties). In the most recent election (which Biden won decisively) there were 159 million votes cast. So your fear that 13% of voters would skew things is, well, let me try to as nice as I can about it, really misguided.

      John m does seem to have issues adding figures- here’s another one to befuddle him.

      There are more republican voters in New York and California than in the 20 lowest population ‘Red’ states combined- I wonder why he doesn’t wan’t their votes to count? Do they live in the unapproved zone? Too much economic activity?

  • 2021-01-06 at 1:38 pm

    Woah there, John M and other apologists for the treasonous behavior we’re seeing from what I’ve seen called the “sedition caucus.” The electoral college isn’t the issue– whether you like it as most Republicans do or find it inherently undemocratic as most Democrats do, The issue is that in the absence of any evidence, after many, many court challenges that dismissed the arguments they were making, some still persist with the notion that it’s worth burning down American democracy if their preferred candidate can somehow win the election. Trump lost the popular vote (for a 2nd time) and this time lost the electoral college vote. It’s over.

  • 2021-01-06 at 2:58 pm

    Trump apologists, let’s not hear any more comments trying to equate protests in DC after Trump was elected and what’s happening in DC today. This is beyond disgusting and if you support it, you’re should be up on charges as a traitor too.

    • 2021-01-06 at 4:52 pm

      Your side has been trying to remove a lawfully-elected president for two weeks shy of four years.

      Anyone who denies this fact is a liar.

    • 2021-01-06 at 5:10 pm

      You don’t decide what people can and cannot say LL. Nor do you get to decide who is a “traitor” or not.
      Your silence over the summer and fall while cities were destroyed, business’ burned out, police and regular folks assaulted and murdered, makes you part of the problem.

      Don’ t start now with the self-righteous lectures. It’s not a good look.

  • 2021-01-06 at 4:26 pm

    This is what the sub-human LaRock was suggesting and this is what happened. Shame on you for even suggesting that people go to DC today. What did you think would happen when masses of illiterate people descend on the Capital. I watched the people who crawled over the fences and broke into the Capitol Building. Half of them had no teeth and the other half have not had a bath since Trump took over in 2016. This is your base? These are patriots as that less than a half wit Ivanka said today?

    This is treason and sedition and thankfully, the CC cameras all over the Capitol Building will insure that this may be the last night at home for some of these clowns. Did you see that moron sitting at Nancy Pelosi’s desk? Full frontal face shot….he should not even bother going home, his next bed will be in jail.

    Shame on LaRock, he has LaRocks in his head if he can square this. Fool….he should not be in any office, ever again.

    “Sub-Human?” Where have I heard that phrase before Sedona?

  • 2021-01-06 at 5:04 pm

    The only good thing about today is that McConnell is gone….that was my biggest wish!! To take the Senate and send old man McConnell packing. Second best thing is that in 14 days this lame, mentally ill moron is gone! He can play golf all he wants, once he gets out of federal prison for the many crimes heading his way! And third that Ivanka, and Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum gone too. Hannity and Ingraham and Levin and Limbaugh can spin all their lies all they want. The curtain has been pulled back on the anti American GOP! Thugs and terrorists make up the GOP. Shame on them. They will pay for this debacle for years. DeSantis in Florida thinks he will run for president, ha…you are an ignorant fat old man too. Rubio? Forget it. Cruz, you look like the devil and are pure evil!! Dems rule!

    Those who felt Trump was a criminal followed the constitution and impeached him. Totally appropriate channel for dealing with that. GOP enablers let him escape justice. That cowardice led directly to a scene yesterday that disgusts this veteran who fought to protect the democracy that these racist, neo-nazi clowns tried to trash! Dave LaRock shares the stain of this outrage
