Hillary and the hypocritical Democrats aren’t defending American democracy from foreign meddling, they are a clear and present danger to it

Hillary and the hypocritical Democrats aren’t defending American democracy from foreign meddling, they are a clear and present danger to it, by Piers Morgan.

Before the election:

Republican nominee Donald Trump repeatedly stated to anyone who would listen that the system was ‘rigged’ against him so he would lose and therefore, he might challenge the result.

The response from Democrats, and much of the media, was instant and furious as they raced to denounce this ‘unprecedented’ attack on democracy.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign went even further, branding Trump ‘un-American’.

The event:

It never crossed their elitist, arrogant, superior minds that Trump, a man they perceived to be an ignorant, unelectable Neanderthal, had a cat-in-hell’s chance of beating the woman dubbed ‘the most qualified candidate in history’ by President Obama.

Then Trump sensationally triumphed, sparking weeks of Biblical scale weeping and wailing from those who opposed him.

The aftermath:

Their deluded, defiant, sore loser fury has known no bounds.

Indeed, it has now escalated in its intensity and desperation.

‘But Hillary won the popular vote!’ they first shrieked, meaninglessly. As everyone with half a brain knows, the US general election is not and never has been decided by popular vote. If it were, then campaigning would be done in a very different way.

‘The election results were fixed!’ they then bellowed, as Green loser Jill Stein launched a pathetic evidence-devoid bid, backed by Clinton’s campaign, to demand recounts in three states. Her lamentable action was thrown out by judges in Pennsylvania and Michigan. And in Wisconsin, the only state where there’s been a full recount, Trump’s lead actually increased!

The latest nonsense:

Now, the Clinton camp’s launched one final, breathtakingly stupid and highly dangerous Hail Mary pass. In an astonishing development, Hillary’s campaign chairman John Podesta has publicly endorsed an attempted coup by members of the Electoral College to try to overturn the election result next week. …

There’s just one problem, and it’s the exact same problem that made a mockery of Jill Stein’s complaint: there is no actual evidence to support any of this.

Nobody has proven the Russians hacked anyone in this election, and nobody has proven Trump knew about any such hacking even if it ever occurred. …

The hypocrisy gets deeper:

About the issue of foreign entities trying to interfere in free, democratic elections held in other countries. …

Earlier this summer, I seem to remember Barack Obama coming over to my country, Britain, and warning us that if we didn’t all vote to stay in the European Union then we’d be ‘back of the queue’ when it came to future trade deals.

That was just about the most deliberate, shameless attempt to ‘rig’ an election (or in this case, referendum) I’ve ever seen. Here was the most powerful man on earth basically putting the arm on a much smaller country to get the result he wanted.
