‘Stop the Steal’ organizer: ‘Any election I don’t like is stolen’

Ali Alexander, the far-right activist who organized the “Stop the Steal” rally held just before the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021, called for a coup to take place in Brazil after the loss of Trump ally Jair Bolsonaro and for the Brazilian military to intervene to stop leftist Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva from taking office.

“Take to the streets, brothers of Brazil! Military standby. Peacefully and patriotically!” Alexander wrote on the social-media app TruthSocial on Sunday. 

In a recent livestream, Alexander spoke the quiet part out loud, saying that if he doesn’t like the results of a particular election, he immediately deems it to be stolen.

“Here’s what I would say to Joe Biden — any election I don’t like is stolen,” Alexander said. “Any election where you get 81 million tabulations, not votes, is stolen. It’s pretty simple — if I don’t like it, it’s stolen.”
