This is an emergency! Control must be believed and obeyed! No-one in the colony believes in Macra! There is no such thing as Macra! Macra do not exist! There are no Macra! Dr. Who the Macra Terror 1967.
I couldn’t help but think of that lost episode when I read this from Ann Althouse response to this wild screach by Richard Hasen:
See, that’s the meme among Democrats. There is no fraud. You’re not even supposed to talk about “[t]he possibility of some fraud” — which was the phrase I used in my 11:55 p.m. post on election night. Note that I wasn’t even making an accusation. I was just trying to sign off and go to bed. Let the day’s own trouble be sufficient for the day. But the mere mention of fraud triggers the reaction: Don’t talk about fraud! Fraud?! There is no fraud! Everybody knows there is no fraud, and anybody who mentions it is, by that mere mention, an agent of discord and deceit. This is an effort to delegitimatize the very interest in the problem of fraud. I expect a label to emerge, a label like “birther.” Ugh! She’s a frauder.
The left does seem to act like Doctor Who Villains lately don’t they.
Since this morning when I first posted on this subject we’ve seen much more
Madison and Milwaukee conservative radio show host Vicki McKenna aired several concerns during her Wednesday show. She told TheDC she spent almost her entire two-hour show taking audience calls, in which listeners detailed what may be considered full-blown voter fraud.
One caller, McKenna said, talked about a “missing box of ballots,” a voter overheard poll workers talking about. On air, McKenna said the ballot box could have contained blank ballots or it could have been filled with Wisconsin voters’ completed ballot. Either possibility presents a dilemma, though, as blank ballots in the hands of the wrong people could be used to illegally influence counts after the election.
Ed Morrissey is suggesting caution:
Having been a radio show host for several years in the Twin City through four elections, I can attest that not every allegation made on the air is the absolute sterling truth. That doesn’t mean they’re all false, either, and Wisconsin has a recent history of voter fraud that certainly serves to reduce the trust in the system there. Talk radio can help focus a spotlight on fraud, but it can also provide a lot of red herrings, too. Wisconsin voters should demand transparency, but also should not jump to conclusions before assuming the entire election was stolen.
I like Ed a lot but the problem with this advice is if we are cautious while the left falsely states these claims are “discredited” we lose the fight before it even starts.
Update: I’m with Steve Foley at the Minority Report:
But even in the face of all this liberals are claiming victory and trying to ridicule (as is their go-to tactic) anyone for even mentioning voter fraud. In fact, a commenter named Murry, replied to my Opinion Journal video post saying:
Oh spare me the “voter fraud” meme.
As if we should just shut up and move along. According to Murry somehow mounting evidence, facts, and abiding by the law have no place in this debate and we rubes should just accept the fact that special interest groups stole this election and quite complaining.
I’m sure folks like Murry would love it if we did just that…
Newsflash — we’re not going anywhere and the fight has just begun!
Update 2: Now Prosser is up by 40. Expect the left to suddenly find an interest in vote fraud.
