Response to Nevilledog (Original post)

2. The big lie is to be exploited to advance voter suppression.

The truth that must be told must include the examples of voter suppression. The rules that demonstrably disproportionately disenfranchise voters in more populous and blacker and browner areas. The long lines in urban areas that cause too many to turn around and go home. (Orchestrated by under allocation of resources.) The sloppy voter registration purges that disenfranchise legitimate voters.

We need to quit defending the election as the "best ever." In many states, voter suppression resulted in an UNDERCOUNT of Biden's support.

That must be part of the truth.

And we MUST mobilize our fellow citizens to stand up for truly free and fair elections, free of such tactics.
