The Democrat party has been accusing Republicans of crimes since the dawn of time it seems. But now, the script has been flipped.
And sickening Hakeem Jeffries allegations have the Democrat party in a panic.
Hakeem Jeffries, the Democrat House Minority Leader, has ignited a firestorm of backlash with his recent social media pronouncement:
“Election denial is a sickness that is poisoning our democracy.”
Election denial is a sickness that is poisoning our democracy.

The hypocrisy meter, however, is pegged firmly in the red zone, considering Jeffries’ own checkered past of undermining election results, particularly the 2016 victory of Donald Trump.
While conveniently declaring himself the guardian of democratic purity today, Jeffries’ record reeks of a “do as I say, not as I do” mentality.
The Republican National Committee, along with outlets like Breitbart News, compiled a damning dossier revealing over 100 instances where Jeffries publicly questioned the legitimacy of the 2016 election.
His Twitter feed during the Trump era reads like a greatest hits of election denialism, calling Trump an “illegitimate president,” accusing him of “stealing the election,” and peddling the debunked Russian collusion narrative.
Social media erupted with receipts, exposing Jeffries’ blatant about-face.
Clips of his past pronouncements, from denying Trump’s right to the presidency to claiming the election was “tainted,” circulated widely.

Users reminded him that the internet has a long memory, and his hypocritical posturing couldn’t erase his prior attempts to delegitimize a duly elected president.
The outrage isn’t confined to online echo chambers.
Conservative commentators and influencers joined the chorus of condemnation, highlighting the double standards employed by the left.
They pointed out how Democrats like Hillary Clinton and Stacey Abrams refused to concede defeat gracefully, and how the entire party spent years clinging to the discredited Russian collusion hoax as a means to delegitimize Trump’s presidency.
This isn’t about mere partisan squabbling.
Jeffries’ blatant hypocrisy exposes a deeper truth about the left’s approach to elections.
When they win, the system is infallible.
When they lose, it’s rigged, tainted, or stolen.
This selective adherence to democratic principles only erodes trust in our institutions and fuels the very anxieties about election integrity that Jeffries now pretends to decry.
Jeffries’ attempt to paint himself as a champion of democratic purity while ignoring his own history of election denial rings hollow.
The American people deserve leaders who stand by their principles, win or lose, and who champion the integrity of our elections regardless of personal political agendas.
Until Jeffries acknowledges his own hypocrisy and commits to upholding these principles, his pronouncements about “election sickness” will remain nothing more than a self-serving smokescreen.
