In Brief: The 2020 Election Book Leftists Don’t Want You to Read

Mollie Hemingway tells the story of how elites made sure 2016 would never happen again.

Veteran journalist Mollie Hemingway has spent the last few months researching and writing about some of the elements of the 2020 election that just didn’t add up, from voting counting to bulk mail-in balloting. She offers a preview of her upcoming book on the subject, Rigged: How the Media, Big Tech, and Democrats Seized Our Elections:

If questioning the results of a presidential election were a crime, as many have asserted in the wake of the controversial 2020 election and its aftermath, nearly the entire Democratic Party and media establishment would have been incarcerated for their rhetoric following the 2016 election. In fact, the last time they accepted the legitimacy of a presidential election they lost was in 1988.

After rehearsing the Democrats’ long record of “stolen election” claims, Hemingway gets down to last year’s shenanigans.

What happened during the 2020 election deserves to be investigated and discussed. It must be investigated and discussed, not in spite of media and political opposition to it, but because of that opposition. That is why I am writing a book about what happened before, during, and after the 2020 presidential election.

The American people deserve to know what happened. They deserve answers, even if those answers are inconvenient. They deserve to know the effect of flooding the system with tens of millions of mail-in ballots. They deserve to know how and why Big Tech and corporate political media manipulated the news to support certain political narratives while outright censoring stories they now admit were true.

The American people deserve to know why courts, without the consent of the accountable legislative bodies charged with writing election laws, were allowed to unilaterally rewrite the rules in the middle of the game. Voters deserve to know why so many in government so vociferously fought to avoid audits and recounts and hide the vote-counting process from the public.

None of it should have been surprising, either. Republicans and other conservatives had been warning about it for months. And yet it happened anyway. Hemingway investigated it, and wrote a book.

The story of how these institutions worked to rig the 2020 results needs to be told, and I plan to tell it. My book, entitled “Rigged: How The Media, Big Tech, And Democrats Seized Our Elections,” tells the story of how the political, media, and corporate establishments changed election laws and procedures, reduced or eliminated oversight of ballots, manipulated the COVID-19 response, stoked the violent racial unrest, published fake news, censored accurate news, and did everything in their power to make sure what happened in 2016 — a Trump election victory — would never happen again in 2020.
