NY Times: Stacey Abrams Concedes Georgia Governor’s Race Ungraciously

Not really. Imagine the headline if it was Republican Brian Kemp who had a hissy fit in conceding. It wouldn’t go like this

The article itself is all about Blaming others, raaaaacism, and being a sore loser. Were it Kemp, the headline would surely be something like Kemp Ends Fight To Be Georgia Governor On Sore Loser Note.

Stacey Abrams ended her Democratic bid to become governor of Georgia on Friday, acknowledging that she did not have the votes to beat her Republican rival, Brian Kemp, but sounding a defiant note by declaring that an “erosion of our democracy” had kept many of her backers from the polls.

The narrow defeat of Ms. Abrams, who would have become the first black woman to be elected governor anywhere in the United States, as well as the apparent loss of Andrew Gillum, who sought to become Florida’s first black governor, at once illuminated the vestiges of Southern history and demonstrated how demographic changes have taken hold across the region and begun to reshape its politics.

See? They only lost because of shenanigans and raaaaacism.

Ms. Abrams, while acknowledging Friday that she could not win, did not concede either.

“More than 200 years into Georgia’s democratic experiment, the state failed its voters,” Ms. Abrams said, her voice alternating among anguish, contempt, frustration and outrage as she argued that “eight years of systemic disenfranchisement, disinvestment and incompetence had its desired effect on the electoral process in Georgia.”

“Let’s be clear: This is not a speech of concession because concession means to acknowledge an action is right, true or proper,” Ms. Abrams said amid a blistering attack on Mr. Kemp’s record as the state’s chief elections regulator and on the balloting process in Georgia. “As a woman of conscience and faith, I cannot concede that.”

As Ms. Abrams ended her campaign, she returned to a theme that had surfaced throughout: that Mr. Kemp, who was the Georgia secretary of state until the Thursday after the election, had used his position to suppress voting and ease his path into the governor’s mansion.

Democrats really are sore losers. Heck, even Trump offered up kind words for Ms. Abrams

But what the NY Times forgot is she’s even more of a sore loser

That’s right, she’s launched a big slush fund, er, PAC, to Do Something.

    Hey Stacey, I’m not happy about the 8 year obama regime either.

    And Donald Trump was a sore winner. He used US government commission in an attempt to prove there were millions of illegal voters causing him to lose the popular vote. There weren’t. He failed.

    The GOP has to suppress votes.

    • formwiz says:

      There were. 7 million.

      He won, you lose. As always

      And, from the last contest, it’s the Demos that are doing the suppressing. 14% of the black vote in FL went to Scott and DeSantis. Hispanics (Mexicans) are fed up with the Demos importing Central Americans into the country. Not to mention women of all colors ticked about how Brother Bret was treated.

      The evidence is being collected and there are going to be some surprises when the next Congress is seated.

      • Jethro says:

        Are you suggesting that Adolph tRump will invalidate the mid-term elections?

        It wouldn’t be surprising. And we expect his NuCon minions will support his treason.

        • formwiz says:

          Depends on the election. If the seat was stolen, the thief will not be seated. Perfectly legal.

          And that would not be treason, you moron. Look it up.

          (I guess that little break we had is over. Jeffery’s back from re-education camp. Brain all washed and dry-cleaned)

    Trolling again Jeffery?

    The fact of the matter is that in Florida, the Democrats wanted to count votes of people who were illegally here. They changed signatures and votes on write-in ballots.

    We all get that you hate Trump, Jeffery.

    We all get that you hate the people who voted for him.

    All the left has is hate.

  5. Jethro says:

    It’s a troll site. All TEACH does is troll, James.

    We get that you love tRump, James.

    We get that you hate the people that don’t love him.

    All the right has is voter suppression.

    How else can a NuCon minority control the majority?

    Except by force, as a police state, which is what the NuCons desire, James.

    • formwiz says:

      We don’t hate people that don’t love him. To each his own, unlike you guys.

      But we do reserve the right to express our opinions, which you hate.

      And we’re still the majority and getting bigger all the time. That’s why the Demos had to conduct their voter suppression so openly. They’re getting desperate. The black vote is slipping away. The Hispanic vote is slipping away. You alienate white women and the working stiff.

      And you’re the ones who have to use force. In Portland, Philadelphia, all over the country. Your manbunned snowflakes and purple haired lesbians are all you have left.

    • gitarcarver says:

      It’s a troll site. All TEACH does is troll, James.

      So now your just calling people whatever names you want? And by definition, a site cannot “troll.”

      Wouldn’t expect you to know that.

      We get that you hate the people that don’t love him.

      Proof please, or else you are only making up more hate filled lies.

      All the right has is voter suppression.

      Proof please. Here in Florida we saw the tactics of Democrats in trying to steal the election.

      All the left has is hate.

    “The GOP has to suppress votes.” Where, and how?

  7. Jethro says:

    Republicans want to keep Blacks, Hispanics, the poor… in fact, any group likely to vote for Democrats, from voting. How do they do it? They enact laws making it difficult to register. They make it harder to vote by limiting voting hours and polling sites. They enact so-called Voter ID laws proven to impact potential Dem voters over GOP voters. They gerrymander districts to favor GOPhers. They purge voter rolls. They disenfranchise felons who have paid their debt. Many transgender individuals are stopped from voting. Caging, where prospective voters are mailed a registered letter – and if returned ‘undeliverable’ the voter registration is challenged.

    In Wisconsin (2016), a federal judge found that the state’s restrictive voter ID law led to “real incidents of disenfranchisement, which undermine rather than enhance confidence in elections, particularly in minority communities”; and, given that there was no evidence of widespread voter impersonation in Wisconsin, found that the law was “a cure worse than the disease.” In addition to imposing strict voter ID requirements, the law cut back on early voting, required people to live in a ward for at least 28 days before voting, and prohibited emailing absentee ballots to voters.

    In a very close election, such as 2016, voter suppression efforts could lead to a candidate who received millions fewer votes actually winning the Electoral College!

    • formwiz says:

      Voter ID impacts nobody. A non-driver ID is $10.

      And polling hours and places are the same for everybody. Usually churches, schools, municipal buildings, all easily accessible. And times are the same for everybody.

      Now let’s talk about truth. Blacks and Hispanics are finally realizing how they’ve been had by the Democrat party. That’s why the vote fraud has been so out in the open this time. They’re getting desperate and hoping the Rs will just roll over. Many did, a lot didn’t. But the President of the United States is taking a hand and you’ll hear the screaming from coast to coast.

      PS ’16 wasn’t close. And Democrat voter theft will be worse next time unless somebody lays down the law. Gonna be a rough 2 years for the Demos.

        Little Richard,

        Good golly, Miss Molly! You can’t possibly believe the tripe you and your betters type.

        You overestimate the power of your Chosen One and the tolerance of real Americans. Con Men have long been looking for a Savior, the One to smite the infidels. Unfortunately for you fascists, the rule of law stands between you and your white X-tian caliphate.

    Back from a hunting trip Dick.

    Sure, we can all see you out in the wilderness, bwana. I also see you finished eating all those buttercups and have chosen your next item. Although I guess it’s always been your first choice.

    You’re equating tRump with Adolf Hitler? Not even I would go that far.

    You just did.


    Hardly, it’s just that you’re so easily amused. I guess when you’re not here, you only have one thing to play with.

    Do you think Adolf would actually try to keep an elected official from being seated?

    No, but President Trump will will keep anyone who cheated the people out of a lawfully elected Congressman or Senator from being seated.
