The same Democrat mouthpieces that are condemning Republicans for refusing to believe that the recent election of Joe Biden was legitimate are pushing their own daft conspiracy theory that Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell cheated in order to win re-election in Kentucky.
Retired Army Col. Lawrence Wilkerson recently appeared on CNN to blast President Trump and his allies for failing to concede the 2020 election and then, without offering a shred of evidence for his opinion, stated that there may have been a “little cheating” in the Kentucky Senate race that Sen. Mitch McConnell won against U.S. Marine fighter pilot Amy McGrath.
“Maybe in Kentucky there was a little cheating,” he said. “I think the Kentucky race that Mitch McConnell was re-elected in, against all percentages that pertained beforehand, and exit polling, and maybe there was something there, but you never look into the Republicans for cheating.”
CNN host Kate Bolduan never questioned his assertations, emboldening other left-leaning news outlets to follow suit and promote their own unfounded theories.
Oddly, the complaints outlined by these outlets are exactly the same ones that President Donald Trump and his supporters have voiced in the aftermath of the November 2020 presidential election. They include complaints about traditional Democrat strongholds voting for Sen. McConnell, a large number of voters voting for Mrs. McGrath and President Trump, and accusations of voter roll inflation.
If these accusations sound familiar, they should. They’re the very same ones that conservative supporters of the president have levied against liberal states. They’re also the very same accusations that have been dismissed by liberal politicians and their acolytes on social media and mainstream news outlets.
However, irregularities in the Kentucky election were non-existent, something that cannot be said for other states. The state government did not change the laws at the last minute, there were no suspicious delays in vote counting. While far-left activists complain that Sen. McConnell did not have high approval ratings, they fail to point out that Mrs. McGrath faced a formidable primary challenge from progressive Kentucky State Representative Charles Booker. The clear split between moderate and progressive voters in that race may have cost her support when she needed it most.
CNN’s silence as one of its own guests voiced an unsubstantiated conspiracy theory on the air makes it clear that the network is far more interested in being a Democrat mouthpiece than engaging in actual journalism. McGrath, unlike President Trump, has never voiced concerns over the integrity of the election in her home state — neither have other large, respected news outlets that called the race the same night.
It is interesting that the same Democrats that scoff at the idea of electoral fraud in the United States have no problem believing that it could take place just because one of their long-shot candidates didn’t win.
