As The Great Debate continues over whether massive voter fraud occurred in the presidential election, whether or not President Trump should concede, and whether he will concede if Joe Biden is ultimately certified as the winner, Blaze TV’s Steven Crowder on Wednesday weighed in on conservatives who have given up on the fight — especially those who have given up for one reason in particular.
Audience member Paige told the “Louder with Crowder” host some of her friends think Trump should concede, because they’re afraid of the Left’s response if Trump does win, no doubt with visions of month-after-month of “peaceful protests” playing in their heads.
“My conservative friends have given up and believe we should concede because they are afraid of what the Left will do if Trump wins. What are your thoughts?
Crowder not only disagreed; his response couldn’t have been more bottom-line blunt:
“Paige, listen I don’t know your friends. And regardless of what we talk about as it relates to voter fraud, voter irregularities, and regardless of what happens, that mentality? Of your friends? It is the epitome of cowardice. That is so disappointing. And is so the opposite […] those are not friends you can trust. Those are not friends you want in a foxhole with you.”
He used an analogy of a married couple reacting to a robbery in their home.
“People who are married, out there. You have a husband who says ‘Ooh, ooh, I can stop the robbers but I’m afraid I’ll piss them off more. And [the wife] says, ‘Wait a second — the kids are in the other room.’ ‘Yeah, [says the husband] but maybe they’ll just take stuff. If I go out, maybe they’ll hurt the kids.’
“No. You’re job is to defend the house —defend your family. […] Our job is to ensure the security and to ensure the stability and the longevity of the Constitutional Republic of the United States.”
“Our job is not to kowtow to the Left,” Crowder said. “Our job as American citizens […] is fighting for what you know to be true.”

Crowder said he’s also “seeing a lot of people saying ‘there’s a lot of crap going on, but nothing’s really gonna happen.'” “Those are not people who you want on your side when the sh*t goes down,” he continued. “Sure, you’ll take their votes […] but that is the worst mentality I can think of.” He warned that if the fight over the election goes to the courts, “physical fights” could follow. (See: 2020.)
“If this goes to the courts, it may well come to — God forbid — a physical fight. If these people are out there burning down Philadelphia — what we saw in CHAZ, what we saw in Portland, what we saw in Seattle — if that moves out to the suburbs […] it may come to a physical fight. […] You don’t go looking for a fight, but if the fight, but that quote is the quote of someone who’s a coward.”
After Crowder finished torching Paige’s friends, he admonished the audience to share his message — bottom line — with friends who believe as do Paige’s friends. Tough love?
In just the kind of news Crowder might have had in mind, my RedState colleague Brandon Morse earlier reported on Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN] reportedly running a “cash for ballots” scheme that was exposed by Project Veritas on Thursday.
And in legitimate election news earlier today, I wrote about Georgia’s firebrand freshman Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor in an article titled Freshman GOP Congresswoman Has Only Been in DC a Week and She’s Already Kicking Butt and Taking Names.
