DALLAS — Despite no evidence being produced for widespread, systemic voter fraud during the 2020 presidential election, Texas Republicans are rallying behind President Donald Trump and his claims that theft and suppression cost him re-election.
According to a Twitter post and Facebook event page, a “Stop the Steal” rally and march is planned for Saturday afternoon at a yet-to-be-determined location in Dallas.
The event is hosted by Texas GOP Chairman Allen West and, according to a tweet, will feature keynote speakers Cory Mills and Dana Loesch, the former National Rifle Association spokeswoman who is identified in the tweet as “American Spokesperson.”
“The American people are sick and tired of the FAKE NEWS, BIG TECH and POLITICAL ESTABLISHMENT. We will not let them steal the election from President Donald J. Trump and all-American Citizens,” the Facebook event page states. “Join us and express your First Amendment Right for the voter fraud, corrupt establishment, and support of DONALD J. TRUMP. Together we can make our voice heard and bring attention to this corrupt election.”
As of Thursday afternoon, 375 people had indicated they are going to the event and more than 1,000 indicated they are interested in it.
Earlier this week, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick offered a reward of up to $1 million to anyone who provides information on voter fraud that leads to an arrest and conviction.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott stated the next president will be determined when the legal votes are counted and the illegal votes are thrown out.
Numerous lawsuits and investigations by Trump’s campaign have so far failed to prove multi-state failure that would call into question the president’s loss to President-elect Joe Biden.
