Liberals claim they are the “tolerant left,” but they continuously prove they are nowhere near as tolerant as they believe themselves to be. Here is another way they are trying to influence the election.
A college student from Michigan stated on Wednesday he has received death threats after being chosen as an Electoral College voter for his state in December, via CNN.
Donald Trump won the president-elect spot last month, but it is not official until December 19th when all 538 members of the Electoral College come and cast their votes for their states.
Michael Banerian is the youth vice-chairman of the Michigan Republican Party, and he is one of his state’s 16 electors. This position is an honor and comes from the dedication one has to their political party, but now more than ever it comes with a price.
“Obviously, this election cycle was pretty divisive. Unfortunately, it’s bled over into the weeks following the election, and I have been inundated with death threats, death wishes, generally angry messages trying to get me to change my vote to Hillary Clinton or another person, and unfortunately, it’s gotten a little out of control.” Banerian said.
He has even been threatened with violence—some have threatened to put a bullet in the back of his mouth, and some people saying things like, “I hope you die,” and “do society a favor, throw yourself under the bus.”
Since the beginning of our Electoral College, the members voted in accordance with who won in their state. This means that Banerian and the other electors will be voting for Donald Trump because it’s the will of their state majority. Even if they don’t want to, it is required they vote with the state’s popular vote.
Banerian is asking people to look up the process and familiarize themselves with how it actually works, and maybe then they wouldn’t be trying to threaten him to change his vote. That’s not how this country works.
“In the state of Michigan, we have laws that prevent faithless electors. So, essentially what happens, if I tried to vote for somebody else, which, let me be clear, I don’t want to, but if I tried to, I would be removed and replaced by another elector. It’s a pointless endeavor,” he said.
Banerian has allegedly filed a police report against the death threats, and it’s no wonder that he would. These liberals are threatening his well-being because they’re throwing tantrums about the person they didn’t vote for winning the election.
Now, liberals are trying to get the electors to change their votes, but it’s a useless effort. Not only that, but Jill Stein is teaming up with Hillary’s campaign (which should be dismantled) to try to get recounts organized in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
When will they accept that Donald Trump is our next president? Hopefully, once December 19th rolls around and no changes are made, they’ll lose interest and go torture someone else. Liberals want to either threaten the Electoral College to give them their way or do away with it altogether. That’s not how our country runs, and liberals need to understand that.
