Newsom Recall in California a Childish Neo-Nazi Tantrum

Newsom’s leading opponent, Larry Elder, began making preemptive claims of voter fraud before the result had even been decided but conceded the race after it was called.

Daily Beast: California Gov. Gavin Newsom easily held on to his seat in the state’s recall election on Tuesday in a widely predicted outcome that may nevertheless unleash a fresh wave of Republican fraud conspiracy theories.

With 60 percent of the votes counted late Tuesday, the Associated Press reported that Newsom was up by a commanding 2-1 margin.

Conservative radio host Larry Elder, who emerged as the GOP’s best chance to replace Newsom should he fall short of the 50 percent of the vote needed to hold his seat, began talking about unsubstantiated election fraud claims even before a result had been announced.

The race appeared close enough that President Joe Biden stumped for Newsom in Long Beach on Monday. “He’s a clone of Donald Trump—can you imagine him being governor of this state?” Biden said of Elder. “You can’t let that happen.” No prominent Democrat entered the race to replace Newsom, should voters have decided to recall him, and as Elder became a frontrunner Newsom was able to, in effect, run against Trumpism.

“We said yes to science. We said yes to vaccines. We said yes to ending this pandemic. We said yes to people’s right to vote without fear of fake fraud or voter suppression,” Newsom declared in a victory speech Tuesday night, in an election he’d also framed as a contest against Trump even without him on the ballot or in the White House. “We said yes to women’s fundamental constitutional right to decide for herself what she does with her body, for her fate and future. We said yes to diversity. We said yes to inclusion. We said yes to pluralism. We said yes to all those things that we hold dear as Californians and I would argue, as Americans.”  Read more…

  1. And so the decline of California continues. I personally thought Kevin Paffrath (A democrat) would have made a great governor, but he didn’t have the backing of the powers that be so that was that. The people behind Newsom live in small enclaves cut off from the reality of what California has become. The middle class is being destroyed so all that’s left are the rich and the poor. Very sad the editors at VT don’t see this.

  2. Nobody in the lower 85 percentile of income in the USA should ever vote GOP. Even at the localist levels, most GOPs are still talking Trumpism. It really is incomprehensible. On the other hand, guys like Biden and Newsom don’t have much to truly offer working people. Their platforms are dated. Many Biden voters were just anti-Trump. Same with Newsom. A man of the people? Not.

  3. Because of changing demographics and mail-in voting the Republican Party will win fewer and fewer elections in the USA. Their traditional methods of voter suppression aren’t working anymore, especially in the big cities. That’s why they’ve given up on democracy and seek to retain control by “other” means.
