Election Denier™ Hillary Clinton Claims GOP Already Plotting to ‘Steal’ 2024 Presidential Election
Former Secretary of State and inveterate Election Denier™ Hillary Clinton can’t seem to help herself. This time she raised the alarm over, you guessed it… election theft that hadn’t even happened.
That’s right, the one who was meant to be Queen can now see into the future, and the future she sees is terrifying. It’s one in which the Democrats lose the Presidential election, and the only way that could happen is if Republicans cheat.
It couldn’t be because the Democrats have no real message other than “The Republicans are [insert derogatory historical throwback label]”.
So let’s dive deeper into Hillary’s recent claim and take a trip down memory lane at some of Hillary’s greatest election denial hits.
HILLARY CLINTON: “Right wing extremists already have a plan to literally steal the next presidential election.”

Longest Temper Tantrum Ever
Hillary Clinton recorded a video for a progressive grassroots organization called Indivisibles, soliciting donations and volunteers for the organization using the overplayed tactic of fear as a motivator. In the video, she states:
“Right-wing extremists already have a plan to literally steal the next Presidential election.”
Does she have proof of this, and if so, has she gone to the appropriate authorities with said proof? That’s a pretty hefty allegation.
I think she is giving extremists too much credit; whether they reside on the right or the left, they generally don’t have their ducks in a row. But this is a tune she’s been singing for years now.
She told CBS after she lost the election to President Donald Trump:
“I believe he understands that the many varying tactics they used, from voter suppression and voter purging to hacking to the false stories – he knows that – there were just a bunch of different reasons why the election turned out like it did.”
It couldn’t have been because she was a terrible candidate and generally unlikeable.
I thought #VoterFraud wasn’t real… a right wing conspiracy ? @HillaryClinton. You may remember that Democrats protested & challenged the last 3 Republican Presidential wins. But shhh… you’re not allowed to talk about that. https://t.co/WOBvDGLaiP

Sailing On A River Called Denial
In addition to calling President Trump an “illegitimate President,” she continued to insert her influence into her party. Much like the older family member who never runs out of unhelpful advice, she told Democratic candidates for President:
“You can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you.”
She even stated that if Joe Biden didn’t win, he “should not concede under any circumstances…”. But this default of throwing temper tantrums when they don’t win isn’t unique to Hillary; the Democratic Party has been riding that Denial river for years.
When President George W. Bush defeated Al Gore, Democrats called it a “coup d’etat.”
When President Bush won again in 2004, Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer and others claimed that the electoral process in Ohio was rigged.
Bring it back to more recent history, and you have the White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, who tweeted election denials™ when President Trump and Governor Kemp won in Georgia.
Reminder: Brian Kemp stole the gubernatorial election from Georgians and Stacey Abrams.https://t.co/ZIKGTd6U1v

So who is it that Hillary has aligned herself with recently to try to “defend democracy” as we know it? Let’s take a peek at this organization, Indivisible, shall we?
Indivisible, according to their website, is a grassroots organization with a mission to elect progressive leaders. They state on their website that one of the fundamental assaults on our democracy is how it was built in the first place:
“Our democracy was rigged from the start in favor of the white and wealthy.”
Sound familiar? It should; it’s more of the same critical race theory garbage, white privilege racism card, and rewriting of history that the Democratic progressives have been preaching for years.

Like most progressive organizations, they take the term justice and morph it into anything but, stating their core advocacy issues are:
- Climate Justice
- Economic Justice
- Healthcare Justice
- Immigrant Justice
They note that within these four issues is the “connecting thread of racial justice.” The reality is the only justice is just justice, not these concepts of distributive justice based on everything but fairness and equality.
This Indivisible group has a paper on their website that discusses how to ‘fix our democracy,’ including giving D.C. statehood and expanding the Supreme Court. You want to talk about rigging future elections… that’s a pretty good blueprint to ensure the downfall of our republic and everything for which it stands.
For being called Indivisible, they sure want to divide out any alternative thoughts and opinions. The specific project that Hillary put her name behind is called ‘Crush the Coup.’
Interesting language, but wordplay is something the progressive left is quite adept at.
Pot… Meet Kettle
Republicans have been called a lot of things lately. We’ve been called semi-fascists, fascists, MAGA extremists, extremists, and now the new favorite – Election Deniers™.
Full disclosure; I was enraged and saddened when I watched Americans storm the Capitol on January 6th. I continue to speak out against what happened that day. But the Democrats need to remember what color their pot and kettle are.
The summer riots and areas of cities made into autonomous zones were also attacks on our democracy and horrific. Secure elections are paramount to maintaining faith in our democratic system.
But preemptively sowing the seeds of distrust is dangerous regardless of the party you align with, especially with no proof to back up the claims. We have pundits who think foreign governments should help execute our elections, for Pete’s sake!
MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace voiced her musings on this out loud, asking if we need international allies to help with our elections. Because having another country manage the bedrock of our power transfer is a great idea.
On the Indivisible website is a photo of volunteers with a caption that reads:
“Organizing to defund ICE, CBP, and Trump’s deportation machine.”
Yes, please, Hillary and other Democrats; align yourselves with groups that claim our nation was evil from the get-go and actively push to tear down the organizations built to protect Americans. That worked so well for you last time.
Hillary Clinton says Republicans already have a plan to steal the 2024 election. I’m old enough to remember when this kind of talk was a direct threat to our sacred democracy. Hope she enjoys the red wave in two weeks: pic.twitter.com/gGpDQFGUlb

Hillary has said about her failed presidential campaign for the highest seat in the land:
“I don’t know that we’ll ever know what happened.”
I know. You lost. Fair and square.
