Democrats Begin Pushing a Major Elections Lie – Opinion

You won’t find a more hypocritical institution than politics. It is both disturbing and jarring to see the shamelessness displayed by many within the arena when they condemn the actions of others, only for them to take the same actions. It’s so detached from the way normal people interact across the vast expanse of the United States.

Rep. Adam Schiff has spent over a decade bashing Russian collusion and then doctored evidence several times as part of his mission to take down Donald Trump. How does CNN’s Jake Tapper ban anyone who even tacitly questioned the 2020 election from his show while he himself spreads baseless election conspiracy theories?

That’s where we are, though. Schiff is welcome on Tapper’s show anytime despite the litany of documented lies the congressman has told. Meanwhile, after spending the last year appropriating Joseph Goebbel’s language about the “Big Lie,” Tapper is now pushing his own version of it.

Tapper isn’t alone, of course. The president himself, following the epic defeat of his so-called “voting rights” bill (which is really a federal attempt to rig the 2022 election) last week, went before the press ranting and raving about “who gets to count the votes.” Aside from the obvious senility-driven anger at play in such a reaction from Joe Biden, one is left asking what the heck he’s talking about?

With these unsubstantiated statements regarding voter counting, what is Biden, Tapper and the rest of them talking about? Well, the technical answer is that they aren’t talking about anything. Or at least, not about what is actually there. Despite the wild rantings of these leftwing ideologues, the votes of the next election and all those after will be counted just as they’ve always been counted, i.e. Local election officials at each county. That’s been a hallmark of our decentralized elections system since this nation’s founding. It should not be surprising that Democrats are attempting to centralize and federalize too much right now. This would mean they want to eliminate common-sense guidelines and procedures.

Tapper feigns moral superiority as he implores us to “pay attention to who they’re lining up to count the votes,” providing no evidence of his vague claim. That’s not by accident, though. He knows exactly what he’s doing.

The goal here is to sow doubt in the next election by convincing people that not only will voters be suppressed (false), but also that those who do vote won’t even have their vote counted. Now, doesn’t that sound an awful lot like the kind of rhetoric Tapper spent the last year decrying as “delegitimizing our elections?” You see, questioning our elections is good again because it’s Democrats who are lined up to get waxed in November.

The same people who can’t stop talking about January 6th and clutch their pearls anytime a Republican mentions voter fraud are suddenly very interesting in pretending that our elections are not, in fact, free and fair. It’s so convenient! And if you ask them about their hypocrisy, they’ll insist that when they do it, it’s different. Because, unlike voter fraud, which absolutely, unequivocally doesn’t exist by their telling, mythical voter suppression is everywhere. They do this despite black Americans voting at the same percentage as white Americans.

Nothing Tapper and the rest are saying makes sense because it’s not supposed to make sense. To drive yet another wedge into America’s heart, this is the endgame. How better to segregate the people in their own camps than by claiming that the victory of one side is the death and destruction of democracy? Such a “threat” to the country can justify anything, after all. That Tapper knows exactly what he’s doing makes his behavior all the worse.
