Response to Binkie The Clown (Reply #5)

9. I'm not sure he's doing that.

What he said was this:

“If we don’t solve the Presidential Election Fraud of 2020 (which we have thoroughly and conclusively documented), Republicans will not be voting in ‘22 or ’24. It is the single most important thing for Republicans to do."

The statement is ambiguous. I could be read as an exhortation to the base to threaten to withhold their support of Republican candidates who are insufficiently committed to the Big Lie, or it could be a warning to those candidates that they have to go all in on the Big Lie if they want to keep the base voting for them.

In any case, his strategy now doesn't really depend on votes. He could be whipped like a rented mule in the next election, and he'll still claim that he won and will fight tooth and nail to try to get in. It didn't work last time when he had his hands on the levers of power; why he thinks it will work this time is anyone's guess.
