In the aftermath of the “insurrection” of January 6, 2021, American companies governed by woke executives and boards fairly fell over one another to appease the left. In a flurry of virtue signaling rarely seen, company after company declared that they would no longer contribute to the campaign funds of anyone who voted against certifying the 2020 election results. Mind you, senators and congressmen and -women have a Constitutional right to object for any reason or no reason at all. In fact, since the 2000 election, Democrats have objected to the Electoral college vote in three elections. Let the record show that since 2000, a Republican has only been elected three times: 2000, 2004, and 2016.
Three things made the 2020 election certification different. First, the election’s fraudulent, if not felonious, conduct in several states was unlike anything the nation has experienced outside the most benighted places in the South shortly after the end of Reconstruction. Second, the number of members objecting to the vote count was unprecedented. Six senators and 128 Representatives objected to the certification of Arizona’s results. Seven senators and 138 members of the House objected to certifying Pennsylvania’s results. Significant House objections were also raised to the outcomes in Michigan, Georgia, and Nevada, but these drew no support in the Senate.
Third, the certification took place in the shadow of the demonstration inside and around the US Capitol that has been labeled an “insurrection” by the not terribly bright and led to the cold-blooded execution of Ashli Babbitt (WARNING. GRAPHIC VIDEO. Ashli Babbitt’s Shooting by Capitol Police Shows No Weapon and No Danger or Threat to the Cop or Anyone Else) and the alleged beating death of Roseanne Boyland at the hands of Capitol Police officers.
