Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia instantly triggered liberals with a 3-word response to the midterm election: “slowly stolen election.”
Following Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter, Rep. Greene asked, “Are we allowed to say ‘slowly stolen election’ on Twitter now?”
Social media platforms like Twitter, Youtube, and Facebook have disallowed Americans to question election results in 2020.
The same social platforms hypocritically allowed Hillary Clinton and leftists to question the 2016 election results.
Musk bought Twitter and vowed to restore free speech to the platform.
Are we allowed to say “slowly stolen election” on Twitter now?

set social media ablaze this week when she summed up her thoughts on the Nov. 8 midterm elections with a three-word phrase:
Greene easily won her own bid for re-election.
However, many Americans have questions about the situation in Arizona where rising MAGA star Kari Lake has yet to hear the results.
Lake is taking on Democrat and current state Secretary of State Katie Hobbs for governor.
“I consider someone’s vote their voice,” Lake said. “I think of it as a sacred vote. And it’s being trampled the way we run our elections in Arizona.”
‘I have been sounding the alarm for two years. Nothing got done,” she continued. “Very little got done last legislative session.”
“And we need to get in there and restore faith in our elections.”

The fiery America First candidate, who has declared she has “absolute 100 percent confidence” she will ultimately be the victor of the ongoing race, added that “We can’t be the laughingstock of elections anymore here in Arizona. And, when I’m governor, I will not allow it. I just won’t.”
As Fox News host Tucker Carlson pointed out, in the now-notorious-for-election-snafus Maricopa County, Arizona, the budget for the election is $4.5 billion dollars, which is five times what it cost to build the Hoover Dam, adjusted for inflation.
Yet no sooner had the polls opened on Tuesday than the issues started cropping up, and here we are nearly a week later and votes are still being counted.
“One poll worker reported that 25 percent of ballots were being rejected,” Carlson noted. “Now you would call that third-world, but actually it’s beneath third-world. Most third-world countries have serious elections. They require voter ID. They don’t wait days for election results in Ghana.”
This wasn’t the only locality where we’ve seen delayed results in tight races, Carlson pointed out that Clarke County, Nevada, and races in California, Oregon, and Washington, many of them in “purple” districts where results remain close, have also been delayed for days.
