Amid President Joe Biden’s Disinformation Governance Board disaster, labeled as his “Ministry of Truth” by critics, a Time article is once again going viral.
The article, from Feb. 4, 2021, is called “The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election.”
The title pretty much says it all. Time, in the piece, comes about as close as possible to admitting that the 2020 presidential election was rigged without actually using the word “rigged.” They use “fortified” instead.
On top of it all, the magazine implies that it is okay that the election was “fortified” because it was for the good of America that this “shadow campaign” was carried out to ensure Trump didn’t get a second term.
In Time’s own words
The Time article was written by Molly Ball. There are eyebrow-raising moments throughout the piece, however, a lot of attention has been called to one particular paragraph.
“That’s why the participants want the secret history of the 2020 election told, even though it sounds like a paranoid fever dream–a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage, and control the flow of information,” Ball writes.
“They were not rigging the election; they were fortifying it,” she continued. “And, they believe the public needs to understand the system’s fragility in order to ensure that democracy in America endures.”
“They just fortified it”
Shortly after Time released this article, Breitbart News’ James Delingpole released an article of his own highlighting some of the key parts of the piece. Delingpole, for example, highlighted the fact that those behind the “shadow campaign” essentially bypassed American voters.
“The Democrats (and their sympathizers) didn’t rig the election,” Delingpole wrote. “They just fortified it by taking care to ensure the right guy won rather than the wrong guy won, regardless of what those pesky voters might misguidedly have wanted.”
Delingpole argued that this tells us a lot about how the political left goes about its business.
“The fascinating part is what it tells us about the brazenness of the left in general and the corrupt, mendacious MSM in particular,” Delingpole wrote. “They are now heavy-hinting that they cheated but want you to know that it’s all OK because they were doing it to not to destroy democracy but to preserve and enhance it.”
It’s certainly something to remember as Biden and the left push their “Ministry of Truth.”
