Trump supporters want boycott of the Georgia Senate runoff elections

I'm good with that!!!

Supporters of President Donald Trump have called for a boycott of the crucial Georgia Senate runoff elections in a move that threatens Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's plan to restrain President-elect Joe Biden.

The two Georgia runoff elections, scheduled for January 5 with early voting starting on December 14, will determine control of the Senate, meaning Biden's ability to push through a Democratic agenda under his first term. But a number of pro-Trump Republicans have taken to Parler, the "free-speech" social media platform, to discourage members of their own party from voting.

Screenshots shared by reporter Marcus Baram showed Trump supporters invoking a conspiracy theory about "rigged" voting machines to urge a boycott of the upcoming elections in Georgia. "Don't vote! Don't be part of the corruption" one post read.

6. Perhaps a bit of reverse psychology?

Get their attention and then persuade them the other way at the last minute?

Hype it up.

7. as with many of their endeavors, this will backfire horribly - i expect record GOP turnout

oddly enough, this looks like a winning strategy for the Republican candidates

15. I don't know about that. This election stands to be close and...

if a small percentage of republicans boycott and not vote, that might decide it for the Democratic candidates.

12. I fear they may be playing us, . . .

saying they're not going to vote, while at the same time, secretly galvanizing their Trump-addled masses to vote in the Georgia run-off elections in droves.

22. Well, maybe I'll go around claiming I heard we have it in the bag

and their votes will go on our totals. One thing about QAnon, it's far right but they've apparently been attacking a lot of baby-eating Republicans too.
