(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) Denying the election results of previous Democrat defeats at the polls has apparently become so blasé that the Original Deplorable jumped exceedingly early with claims that Republican extremists were already trying to “literally steal the next presidential election.”
Ignoring the disconnect between calling for former President Donald Trump’s persecution for pushing his Stop the Steal claims, Hillary Clinton used a recent address to push her own preemptive Stop the Steal insurrection.
“I’m here to highlight something that is keeping me up at night,” Clinton said in a promo for the far-leftist group Indivisible.
While conceding that the upcoming midterms are “extremely important,” Clinton warned Democrats and leftists that “we also have to look ahead because, you know what, our opponents certainly are.”
“Right-wing extremists already have a plan to literally steal the next presidential election,” Clinton declared, without a shred of evidence. “And they’re not making a secret of it.”
Clinton babbled about an imagined far-Right Supreme Court that was poised to hand national elections over to state legislatures, ensuring that those nasty-Republican legislatures would try to overturn any result they opposed and insisting that democracy was at risk.
“Just think,” Clinton shuddered. “If that happens the 2024 election could be decided not by the popular vote or even by the anachronistic Electoral College, but by state legislatures, many of them Republican-controlled.”
And the best way, the only way to save democracy was to give until it hurts, Clinton insisted, getting around to her pitch’s main objective, which was to fundraise for the aggressively-partisan Indivisible’s “Crush the Coup” initiative.
These are races we can win but these six candidates need more support. People running for state legislature don’t have the benefit of big email lists, media coverage, or nationwide name recognition, but their races could very well determine what kind of democracy we have in 2024. pic.twitter.com/4duCAiLEFH

The blatant political hackery of Clinton’s preemptive election-denying hocus-pocus received immediate backlash for its gross hypocrisy.
Political pundit Todd Starnes said that Clinton “earns the distinction of being the first Democrat to question the outcome of the 2024 presidential race.”
“As of yet Liz Cheney has not called for a federal investigation and there’s been no condemnation from the Drive By Media,” Starnes cracked.
“Wait, so Trump saying Biden stole the election is forbidden speech. But the Dems lose the next election they are allowed to say Reps stole it?” noted one Twitter user.
“Are these the same vast right-wingers that accused her husband of cheating?” asked another.
@TwitterSupport Election disinformation isn’t allowed, right?

Disinformation or not, Clinton decided to use the new preemptive strike to fix the late jump she got on her previous stolen-election claims.
