It turns out that American elites were conspiring against Donald Trump all along and they want you to know what really happened in the 2020 election. You can read about the plot against him in Time. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce was part of the conspiracy against Donald Trump. Leftwing activists also sold out to Corporate America and the plutocracy in order to own MAGA.
“In a way, Trump was right.
There was a conspiracy unfolding behind the scenes, one that both curtailed the protests and coordinated the resistance from CEOs. Both surprises were the result of an informal alliance between left-wing activists and business titans. The pact was formalized in a terse, little-noticed joint statement of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and AFL-CIO published on Election Day. Both sides would come to see it as a sort of implicit bargain–inspired by the summer’s massive, sometimes destructive racial-justice protests–in which the forces of labor came together with the forces of capital to keep the peace and oppose Trump’s assault on democracy. ...
Their work touched every aspect of the election. They got states to change voting systems and laws and helped secure hundreds of millions in public and private funding. They fended off voter-suppression lawsuits, recruited armies of poll workers and got millions of people to vote by mail for the first time. They successfully pressured social media companies to take a harder line against disinformation and used data-driven strategies to fight viral smears. They executed national public-awareness campaigns that helped Americans understand how the vote count would unfold over days or weeks, preventing Trump’s conspiracy theories and false claims of victory from getting more traction. After Election Day, they monitored every pressure point to ensure that Trump could not overturn the result. “The untold story of the election is the thousands of people of both parties who accomplished the triumph of American democracy at its very foundation,” says Norm Eisen, a prominent lawyer and former Obama Administration official who recruited Republicans and Democrats to the board of the Voter Protection Program. …
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. They were not rigging the election; they were fortifying it. And they believe the public needs to understand the system’s fragility in order to ensure that democracy in America endures. …”
The real conspiracy was always hidden in plain sight: Big Tech censorship to suppress and defund the populist Right and turn social media into another “mainstream” echo chamber, violent street protests orchestrated by Black Lives Matter and Antifa and backed by the Democratic establishment to create a climate of chaos and changing the election laws to swamp Trump with mail in ballots.
Instead of doing investigative journalism and exposing the real conspiracy against Trump, the Trump base was lulled into complacency with QAnon prophecies and discredited themselves by latching onto conspiracies which had no basis in fact like COVID-19 being a hoax, voter fraud in black cities or Dominion voting machines being rigged to switch votes. Trump voters were led by grifters down an endless series of these rabbit holes. Donald Trump also tweeted about censorship and the GOP held performance art hearings about the issue until they lost control of the White House and Senate. It would have been a violation of conservative and libertarian ideology for “big government” to take down Big Tech. Finally, they felt bold enough to just wipe Trump himself and his supporters off the internet.
The key takeaway is that there was a conspiracy. It was just not the conspiracy that ordinary people were led to believe. Now that the existence of the real conspiracy has been established by Molly Ball in Time, it should be easier for them to move on as cooler heads can start working to piece together what really happened. They were basically right that “something was going on” behind the scenes.
