Opinion | The enduring damage of Mr. Trump’s ‘big lie’
I learn with curiosity the July 7 editorial concerning the pernicious results of the various Republicans who’re cynically endorsing Donald Trump’s “huge lie” [“Rebuke the ‘big lie’ supporters”]. Many articles and discussions have addressed the hazard to democracy of the “huge lie”; nevertheless, there was little dialogue of the shape that this hazard will take. Disbelief in election resultsis contagious. There is no such thing as a purpose to consider that acceptance of the “huge lie” and rejection of the outcomes of U.S. elections will probably be confined to voters on the far proper. Delegitimizing truthful elections and suppressing voter turnout will inevitably result in an equal cynicism in voters on the left.
