Joe Biden has picked his chief of staff for a presidency he has not officially won yet. Despite evidence of voting irregularities and recount orders in multiple battleground states, the mainstream media have called the election for Biden, and he has already began planning his presidential transition.
Biden’s pick for his White House Chief of Staff, Ronald Klain, reads as hypocrisy to many conservatives due to a Twitter post from 2014 where he stated that elections are “rigged.” Klain has been working as a senior adviser to the Biden-Harris campaign, and also served as the former vice president’s chief of staff during the Obama administration from 2009 to 2011.
Vox, a left wing news outlet, published an article in 2014 based on a poll by Rasmussen, with the headline, “68% of Americans think elections are rigged.” The article was shared on Twitter, where Klain responded to it.
“@voxdotcom That’s because they are,” Klain responded. His reply was still up on Twitter as of Thursday morning.
Despite evidence to the contrary, the Biden campaign and other Democrats have been insisting that our elections are secure. Due to the Democrats’ position, this tweet has many on the right claiming hypocrisy.
Since Trump was elected president, Democrats have been claiming that the 2016 election was rigged. They spent the last four years attempting to dispute or overturn the results of the election, calling Trump an illegitimate president, and doing everything they can to obstruct his presidency.
Completely changing positions, the Democrats now insist that our elections are completely safe and secure. Many conservatives think that the only possible reason for this sudden switch is that the left believes the only legitimate outcome of an election is a Democrat victory.
There is substantial evidence for this. According to the Wall Street Journal, “Every time [Democrats] lost since 1968, they’ve called it illegitimate—except for the 49-state landslides.” Even Biden’s chief of staff insists that elections are rigged, though he probably changed his tune now that his preferred candidate was announced as the winner by the mainstream media.
The point is, Republicans have the right to question the results of an election when evidence of shady activity has been reported at polling places, software “glitches” occurred that switched thousands of votes from Republican to Democrat, and random ballot dumps came in for Biden in the middle of the night. If Democrats actually believed in election integrity, they would support these efforts to investigate whether voter fraud occurred.
