Could the Left become any more glaringly hypocritical in their “do as I say not as I do” mentality toward the American people?
Trillion-dollar company Amazon, the CEO and founder of which is rabid Leftist Jeff Bezos, is taking a stand against mail-in voting…but only when it comes to significant changes to the company, such as unionizing.
Earlier this month, the National Labor Relations Board announced that a vote by Amazon employees at a warehouse in Alabama to determine whether or not to form a labor union will be held by mail-in voting.
The e-commerce mogul quickly denounced the NLRB’s decision, instead proposing the vote be held in-person, USA Today reported.
“We believe that the best approach to a valid, fair, and successful election is one that is conducted manually, in-person, making it easy for associates to verify and cast their vote in close proximity to their workplace,” Amazon spokeswoman Heather Knox told Fox News.
Knox said the company, “provided the NLRB with a safe, confidential and convenient proposal for associates to vote onsite, which is in the best interest of all parties – associate convenience, vote fidelity, and timeliness of vote count.”
All of a sudden, when it’s in Bezos’ best interest to have a fair vote, he advocates to hold it in-person.
This comes just after the Bezos-owned Washington Post spent months relentlessly attacking and smearing Trump supporters who believe widespread election fraud was committed through mail-in voting in the last election.
Let’s take a moment to remember some of their headlines on this issue from the past few months.
“The lie that lingers: 3 in 10 Americans falsely believe the election was riddled with fraud”—January 19, 2021
“Which Republicans are most likely to think the election was stolen? Those who dislike Democrats and don’t mind white nationalists.”—January 19, 2021
“President Trump’s questions about mail-in ballots, answered”—October 28, 2020
All these headlines are followed by stories that slam anyone who dared to make the correlation between election fraud and mail-in voting.
Bezos insists on telling this narrative to the American people, but when it comes to his own business, he insists the vote happens in-person in order to ensure a “fair” election.
Perhaps this obvious hypocrisy will wake up those who find themselves agreeing with the Left’s inconsistent narrative and will lead to increased safeguards around how we vote in future elections.
