Even though he has not officially won the election, Joe Biden has already picked his chief of staff. Biden’s pick reads as hypocrisy for many conservatives who are concerned about allegations of voting irregularities, and recounts being ordered in multiple battleground states.
Biden’s pick for his White House Chief of Staff, Ronald Klain, is raising eyebrows over 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.
Left wing news outlet Vox 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 U.S. elections are secure. Due to the Democrats’ position, this tweet has many on the right claiming hypocrisy.
Since President Trump was elected, Democrats have been claiming that the 2016 election was rigged. They spent the last four years trying to dispute or overturn the results of the election, calling Trump an illegitimate president, and doing everything they can to hinder his presidency.
Completely switching course, the Democrats now insist that our elections are completely safe and secure. Many conservatives believe 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 belief. 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’s probably singing a different tune now that his preferred candidate was announced as the winner by the mainstream media.
The truth is, President Trump and his supporters have the right to question the results of an election when multiple instances of shady activity have been reported at polling places, software “glitches” occurred that switched thousands of votes from Republicans to Democrats, and random ballot dumps came in for Biden in the middle of the night.
If Democrats truly believed in election integrity, they would support these efforts to ensure that voter fraud did not occur.
