Media Says GOP 2020 Election Protest ‘Unprecedented’–But Democrats Did It in 2000, 2004, 2016

The media is lying once again, this time saying it is “unprecedented” that the GOP is protesting the 2020 election, but in fact the Democrats did the same thing in 2000, 2004, and 2016.

check out the liars at CBS News, for instance. here is the very first paragraph of CBS’ lying Democrat propaganda:

The unprecedented Republican effort to overturn the presidential election has been condemned by an outpouring of current and former GOP officials warning the effort to sow doubt in Joe Biden’s win and keep President Trump in office is undermining Americans’ faith in democracy.

This is a lie and pure left-wing propaganda posing as a “news” report.

The truth is, Democrats have been protesting the election of Republican presidents for the last 21 years. in fact, they’ve done it for every Republican elected since the year 2000.

Want proof?

In January 2001, after the contentious election of George W. Bush in the year 2000, U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D, TX) spoke about the “millions of Americans who have been disenfranchised by Florida’s inaccurate vote count.”

Even the Washington Post reported that Democrat yelled words including “fraud” and “disenfranchisement” as the Republicans called for “regular order.”

Next up, in 2005, after Bush won his second term, the Democrats once again protested the election.

U.S. Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones (D OH) told a joint session of Congress that “the objection today is raised because there [were] irregularities across this country with regard to voting, and we as a Congress have an obligation to step up to the plate and correct them.”

Also in 2005, U.S. Rep. John Conyers (D MI) said, “We’re here because not a single election official in Ohio has given us any explanation for the massive and widespread irregularity in the state, no explanation for the machines … that recorded [then-Democratic presidential nominee John] Kerry votes for Bush.”

Democrats also protested the 2016 election, as U.S. News reported in January of 2017.

So, don’t believe these liars in the media when they try to fool you into thinking all this never happened before.

But notice how the left-media is propagandizing this? Calling it “unprecedented” and “meant to undermine democracy” when Republicans do it, but completely ignoring it when Democrats do it.
