Democrats hypocritical

“It was horrifying what he said on the debate stage tonight,” Hillary Clinton told journalists traveling on her campaign plane. “Our country has been around for 240 years, and … one of our hallmarks has always been we accept the outcome of our elections.” And so just where are we now?

To so many other descriptions, let’s add hypocrite to Clinton’s baggage. We are now looking at a Democratic Party seeking to overturn an election that is due to be certified on Dec. 19. This was an election held under the rules of our Constitution; the Republican candidate won.

Recall the question asked of candidate Trump about accepting the results of the election was never asked of Clinton. Why? The election of Clinton was, at the time, a foregone conclusion; no need to ask the question. Except that Clinton didn’t win.

We have to now conclude that the mantra of the Democratic hierarchy is winning at any cost, the Constitution notwithstanding. Note I said “hierarchy.” I do not suggest that this applies to Democrats in general, but that Democrats should start to distance themselves from a party that no longer believes in the Constitution.
