Stolen Election?

Donald Trump, and his foremost lapdog, Ann Coulter, insist that the GOP nomination and election are being “stolen” from The Donald.

The truth evades those who dwell in lies.

Stolen Election

In her April 20th column, Coulter reprised her absurd election-stealing charges,[1] distinguishing between “elections, not party-rigged conferences or caucuses.”

Every eligible voter is able to do so in a caucus, a primary, or a conference.

Coulter once loved federalism, but now – for this election cycle[2] – wants a single, uniform, monolithic system for voting. Why? Because Trump is ignorant of the rules![3]

A member of Free Republic, Kandy Atz, provided excellent analysis of one particularly nonsensical paragraph contained in one of Coulter’s more vitriolic diatribes.[4]

Coulter’s propagandistic paragraph:

Until Cruz won a primary in mean-as-a-snake Wisconsin, he hadn’t won a single primary – i.e., an ‘election’ – outside of his home state, a sister state and a state where Trump didn’t campaign. In fact, until cantankerous Wisconsin, the only primary where Cruz managed to surpass 34 percent of the vote was his home state of Texas – where he got 43.8 percent.”

You don’t have to be a particularly astute reader to recognize the nonsense contained in those words.

Here is Freeper Kandy Atz’s Response:

“Has Ann gone bat guano crazy? So states that don’t allow Democrats to select the GOP candidate are somehow evil? And they adopted rules to help … Ted Cruz? He must be really amazing to anticipate exactly where the campaign would be a year in advance and then fly all over the country in time to change the rules so that they would work perfectly just for him right at this moment. What an amazing candidate!”

“Instead of attacking Ted Cruz for playing by the rules, she should be complaining about the dysfunctional Trump campaign. He has virtually no ground game, and sometimes doesn’t even know when to show up – see his latest Washington state fiasco. Is this a serious campaign for POTUS, or just another reality TV show Ann?”

“Trump has NEVER topped 50% in any state. His best performance 49.31 was in THE MOST PROGRESSIVE STATE ON THE PLANET, politically just to the left of North Korea. Yep, that Trump fella is a force to be reckoned with. He’s unstoppable. I promise you what people in Taxachusetts want in a President is WILDLY different from most Americans, especially Christians and Conservatives. BTW – Has Cruz whined and complained about the Hawaii, Minnesota, Nevada, or Kentucky caucuses? I wonder why not? Now that the field is narrowed and Conservatives aren’t splitting their votes 3-5 ways, it will get much harder for Trump to win any state, except his mind-numbed progressive friends in the Northeast. Enjoy that lead while you have it, and oh by the way, have Trump read the rules.”

“Speaking of Texas, there were 14 people on the ballot when early voting began, and a massive influx of DNC voters/rent-a-Trump-mob types in the open primary. Even with all those advantages, Cruz still beat Trump by almost 500,000 votes. Setting aside the votes for Cruz, in the MOST RELIABLY CONSERVATIVE STATE IN THE UNION, more people voted AGAINST the progressive reality TV star than for him – (837,154 to 757,489). Don’t know how one spins that as a negative for Cruz, but it’s certainly NOT a positive for Trump moving forward.”

“The primary system in recent years has given us 2 progressives – McCain, Romney, and now a hard core NYC values big government progressive – Trump, is leading. After watching far too many Democrats vote in the GOP primary in Texas, I’m leaning more towards a caucus or closed primary in the future. The GOP cannot allow progressives, especially Democrat crossovers to have so much influence over our nominee. Ann may be happy nominating Obama-lite and Hillary-lite, but it’s the fastest way to kill turnout among Conservatives and Christians, and is disastrous for local and state races down the ticket. They are terrified at the prospect of Trump at the top of the ticket. What a nightmare that would be, even in reliably Conservative districts/counties/states.”
