Democracy = Democrats! TIME Lauds Anti-Trump ‘Conspiracy to Save the 2020 Election’
Time Magazine drew a lot of attention on Friday with a headline titled “The Secret Story of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election”. The story below of Molly Ball confirms what suggests – Trump lost, so the elections (and democracy) were saved.
Many on social media gushed to the part about how a coalition of Trump-hating groups did not “rig” the elections, but rather “reinforce” them:
This is the inside story of the conspiracy to save the 2020 election based on access to the group’s insides, never-before-seen documents, and interviews with dozens of stakeholders from across the political spectrum. It is the story of an unprecedented, creative and determined campaign, the success of which also shows how close the nation was to disaster. “Any attempt to disrupt the correct outcome of the elections has been rejected,” said Ian Bassin, co-founder of Protect Democracy, an impartial advocacy group based on the rule of law. “But It is extremely important for the country to understand that it did not happen by chance. The system didn’t work magically. Democracy does not carry out itself. ”
That’s why attendees want the secret story of the 2020 elections to be told, even if it sounds like a dream of paranoid fever – a well-funded cabal of powerful people who span industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to To influence perceptions and to change rules and laws, control the reporting in the media and control the flow of information. They did not manipulate the choice; they fastened it. And they believe that the public must understand the fragility of the system in order to ensure that democracy in America continues.
Once again the media shamelessly declares that choosing Democrats and “saving elections” are the same thing. The quote from Ian Bassin here is absolutely perfect for describing the self-image of the media. Democracy doesn’t work magically, it doesn’t save itself. It needs careful “strengthening” by the omniscient liberal media elite.
And it’s usually funny that Ball should advertise project democracy as “impartial” when you can see on their website that Co-Founder Bassin, an attorney associated with Obama-Biden’s White House from 2009-2011, and Justin Florence, who also, are worked on the Obama-Biden legal team and as senior attorney for Senator Sheldon Whitehouse on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Ball praised how the AFL-CIO and the Chamber of Commerce issued a joint statement on Election Day, “in which the workforce came together with the forces of capital to keep the peace and reject Trump’s attack on democracy“She also celebrated how” activists struggled to shore up America’s institutions when they were simultaneously attacked by a relentless pandemic autocratically inclined president.“The election had to be” saved “from the president.
What was “saved” here was the election result. The time so desperately wanted in 2016 when they melted two covers of Trump’s face (the second in a puddle). If people follow the careful instructions of liberal reporters, democracy will be saved. If people choose a media basher then “the system didn’t work magically”.
