The hypocrisy of the liberal media, beginning with CNN, jumps off the page when looking at a significant flip-flop from Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, D-Fla.
The former Democratic National Committee chairwoman is currently advocating for easing the vote by mail process, even though she once expressed concerns about vote by mail fraud, insisting mail-in ballots are a “risky” idea in a presidential election.
In 2008, CNN reported: “Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz argues a mail-in ballot has wrong written all over it.”
“It’d be a risky experiment for us with an election that has stakes as high as a presidential election. We’ve never done a mail-in ballot statewide,” the Democratic lawmaker said in a video clip included in the article.
Among her concerns was signature fraud and getting addresses wrong, and that it would “cause more chaos.”
That clip is seen here:
Apparently, in the year 2020, Democrats are prepared to embrace chaos in the hopes of defeating President Trump.
And they have a pandemic to fall back on to justify it — this being the party that has openly embraced tens of thousands of people taking to the streets to protest alleged racial injustice:
The coronavirus has exacerbated the need for increased voting options as it poses a public health risk to voters and polling location workers. Options like vote-by-mail are necessary to ensure safe, secure, accessible and accurate elections.

Even the ever-hypocritical Wasserman-Schultz.
“No democracy should ever force a voter to make this choice — your health or your vote,” she said in a recent Facebook video, reading robotic-like from a script.
Her solution to keep people safe: “Expand early voting and offer easier vote by mail options.”
Conservative talk radio host Mark Levin called out the “media clowns,” specifically naming CNN’s primadonna Trump-hating reporter Jim Acosta, for not mentioning previous concerns about vote by mail fraud expressed by Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, D-Fla.
Levin said in a tweet: “Amazing how Jim Acosta and the other media clowns don’t mention that Wasserman-Schultz had the same concern about mail in voting as the president.”
Acosta being named because of the 2008 story from the network.
While the president was roundly criticized for expressing concerns about possible fraud, the same media gave Wasserman-Schultz a pass.
A key difference between 2008 and now is that Republicans had a sizable advantage when it came to absentee ballots back then, which explains her opposition then.
Of course, in most states a voter must officially request an absentee ballot, while the Democratic Party today is seeking wide-scale mailing of tens of millions of ballots to all registered voters — a big difference.
Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
Can you say HYPOCRITES? I can!!!

I honestly think we should all start acting like they don’t exist. Kayleigh shouldn’t take their questions. What purpose does it serve? The President has 200 million followers between twitter Facebook and Instagram. Why are Jim Acostas temper tantrums relevant anymore

Just add this to the list of double standards the left has.
-Free speech, unless you disagree with them.
-The second amendment is bad, unless it’s armed men protecting them.
-Separation of church and state, unless they want the State to control the church.

They’ll definitely never mention this because it’ll show just pathetic and hypocritical they are on the left.

Because cheating and not having debates is all they got. It’s disgusting.
