The Truth about the Big Lie
Trump and his enablers repeated and magnified his Big Lie that the election was stolen so persistently and with such fervor that a substantial percentage of the population came to think it was true or was probably true, or if they were more knowledgeable and knew better but were sufficiently cynical, immoral, and ambitious, that subscribing to it and promoting it would work to their own political advantage. In the wake of Trump’s incitement of insurrection, the Big Lie has become less effective in obscuring the truth. Let’s hope that those promoting it, from Trump on down, will be seen by increasingly large numbers of people as what they are, Big Liars.
