QUOTE(Mrs. Pigpen @ Dec 15 2020, 09:23 AM) *
Jennifer Rubin, a journalist for the WaPo, references a list here.
It's a different list, but the same principle.
"Any R now promoting rejection of an election or calling to not to follow the will of voters or making baseless allegations of fraud should never serve in office, join a corporate board, find a faculty position or be accepted into "polite" society. We have a list."

This was November 6th.
In my world, there is a great deal of difference questioning election results while they are still counting ballots on November 6th, than say December 6th.
Think Hillary conceded on the 8th. Al Gore on the 13th of December.

Edited to add: I'm not going to tell anyone what they should think, but I do not believe that when this forum started most folks would think keeping lists of "wrongthinkers" to "hold them accountable" would be taken cavalierly.



This is taken from another thread and I think it is a good point of conversation or debate.

Is holding election challengers accountable for their actions acceptable?
Why is it attacking "wrongthinking"?
Under what conditions is it acceptable?
In this case does that date of action matter more than the type of action?
