We wrote about Rep. Jamie Raskin earlier today; Raskin was a guest on CBS News Face the country on the weekend and explained that the extreme MAGA movement shows all of the hallmarks of fascism, such as not accepting the outcomes of elections that dont go their way and embracing political violence. Once we mentioned earlier, RNC Research fought back with a video from 2003 where Raskin refused to simply accept the consequence of the 2000 election.

We bring this up constantly but nobody in the mainstream media appears to care to point it out Raskin, who sits on the January 6 select committee, also objected to the certification of electoral votes for Donald Trump in 2017.

Heres video and ironically, it had been Vice President Joe Biden who shot him down.

Democrats also refused to simply accept the outcomes of the 2004 election, claiming the Diebold voting machines were rigged. However the Republicans who objected to the awarding of Bidens electoral votes in 2020 are actually smeared as insurrectionists, no much better than the rioters at the Capitol.
Oh, so when far as embracing political violence, you didnt hear much objection to the rioting that occurred after Hillary Clinton lost the election and again at Trumps inauguration:
The DC government finished up paying $1.6 million to individuals arrested for attacking Trump’s inauguration.
Read that again, not just a typo. The ACLU was involved needless to say https://t.co/4QzeJAEx5r

GorT: this type of person oblivious to reality. Dems have already been fighting national elections since “the hanging chad”, these were relatively quiet on the riots in a variety of cities during the last many years because “people expressing themselves”, and also some encouraged it. https://t.co/kcbF1M2fw8

Rioting may be the voice of the unheard.
One fricking riot by the proper. The left have shot at Congressman, threatened a SCOTUS and rioted nightly for per year.
Its absolutely amazing the way the press pushes that the proper is violent.
Youve actually never seen a violent right. https://t.co/1tZqvHYaXF

Jamie Raskin voted never to count the electors in 2016. He could be not just a serious person. https://t.co/GhrzVjkR0J

1) The Democrats didnt accept the outcomes of the 2000 and 2016 elections. Many even contested 2004.
2) Attempts on Bret Kavanaughs life; the shooting of a GOP rep at the congressional baseball game by way of a far left crazy person; the entirety of summer 2020. https://t.co/uhnUqXJH6Y

NARRATOR: Jamie Raskin said the election in 2000 was stolen and tried to overturn the 2016 election.
Raskin is really a Democrat. https://t.co/vUprHMMMkJ

Raskin really must discover ways to accept election results he doesnt like.
