After President Donald Trump’s announced he would be issuing a gracious posthumous pardon of women’s suffrage pioneer Susan B. Anthony, New York Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul became triggered by Trump’s move to honor an American hero.
“I was deeply troubled to learn that Trump went ahead and treated her like a criminal,” Hochul said. “Susan B. Anthony was guilty of nothing.”
Hochul is apparently missing the point that Trump’s pardon indicates that Anthony was guilty of nothing and corrected the record that previously said she was guilty of a crime. Hochul did not let logic and common sense get in the way of her cheap partisan attempt to score points with her base of rabid Trump haters.
As highest ranking woman elected official in New York and on behalf of Susan B. Anthony’s legacy we demand Trump rescind his pardon.

She even gave a speech in front of the Susan B. Anthony House in order to grandstand.

“Later today, I will be signing a full and complete pardon for Susan B. Anthony. She was never pardoned. Did you know that? She was never pardoned,” the president said on Tuesday, adding that the move is “fantastic.”
Anthony was once convicted of voting illegally in the 1872 presidential election, years before the 19th Amendment was enacted to put universal suffrage into place. He is issuing this pardon on the 100 year anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment.
“She was guilty for voting. And we are going to be signing a full and complete pardon,” Trump said.
Anthony committed civil disobedience nearly 150 years ago that would go on to change the trajectory of the country. She was charged along with 14 other women for illegal voting in New York. She demanded no special treatment – true equality, rather than the special treatment demanded by third-wave feminists – as she was brought in by authorities.
Before her trial, Anthony was busy politicking for her cause. She traveled to 29 cities across the state to deliver her iconic speech: “Is it a crime for a US citizen to vote?”
“It was we the people, not we the white, male citizens, nor yet we male citizens, but we the whole people, who formed this Union,” she said in her speech.
She was eventually convicted of illegal voting, and fined $100, which she said was the “greatest judicial outrage history has ever recorded.” Anthony told the judge she would “never pay a dollar,” and there are no records of her ever paying the unjust fine.
“Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God,” Anthony said. Trump has made it clear that Anthony was no criminal for disobeying unjust government policy.

President Trump has also made electoral integrity one of his primary focuses during his re-election campaign, as Democrats push to expand the mail-in voting system that opens the door for a plethora of fraud.
“We have to have honest voting,” Trump said during today’s press conference. “That’s what this is all about here. We have to have honest voting.”
Today, Susan B. Anthony shines down from heaven and smiles upon the president as he protects the vote for millions of women nationwide.
Leftist Group Pickets Outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Home Demanding GOP Accept Electoral College Certification
A group of left-wing militants protested outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Virginia home on Monday night, threatening to harass Republicans for declining to sign off on contested electoral college slates. The professional progressive activists, affiliated with Shutdown DC, demanded that Hawley relent on a plan to challenge ratification of the electoral college.

Shutdown DC has become known for aggressive and personalized harassment protest tactics, with members of the organization “protesting” outside of Tucker Carlson’s house and ringing his doorbell in 2018. The small crowd of protestors spoke of appearing on the streets of DC on Tuesday, when thousands of Donald Trump supporters will protest at the capitol demanding that Republican Senators and Congressmen delay the certification of electors from contested states.
One man in an orange hat threatened to protest outside of Hawley’s house every day.
“He should be ready for us to come back and visit him if he doesn’t abandon his dangerous, reckless, self-serving, racist attack on our democracy!”
The ShutDownDC protestors warned Hawley of their harassment tactics in a chant.
“We’ll be back! We’ll be back! We’ll be back!”
Local police arrived on the scene within minutes of the protestor’s arrival at the private residence. The mob was allowed to go through with their stunt, yelling into megaphones late into the night in the suburban neighborhood. They loitered on the sidewalk for about an hour before leaving.
The group littered at the scene, leaving placards with progressive mantras on the ground outside of Hawley’s house as they left. They weren’t cited.
Belligerent progressives are likely to continue the use of aggressive harassment tactics even after Donald Trump’s presidency, with Biden all but certain to be inaugurated as President later this month.
