It looks like Donald Trump is owed an apology.
One of his biggest gripes turned out to be true.
The Washington Post admitted the shocking truth about what happened in the 2020 election.
One of the biggest controversies from 2020 revolved around “Zuckerbucks.”
This refers to the $419 million that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg donated to the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL) for election administration.
Conservatives argued the CTCL used the money to fund Democrat get-out-the-vote operations in key swing states which helped push Joe Biden into the winner’s circle.
Twitter CEO Elon Musk recently shared an October 2021 article from The Federalist by William Doyle detailing exactly where and how the CTCL funded election operations the previous year.
Of the 26 grants CTCL provided to cities and counties in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Virginia that were $1 million or larger, 25 went to areas Biden won in 2020. The only county on this list won by Donald Trump (Brown County, Wisconsin) received about $1.1 million—less than 1.3 percent of the $85.5 million that CTCL provided to these top 26 recipients.
In recent years conservatives have noted a growing trend in the media and Democrat Party.
When conservatives point to an unconstitutional power grab or particularly odious infringement on freedoms Democrats and the press will initially deny there is anything wrong.
Within days or weeks liberals will then admit conservatives were right, but that Democrats are totally justified in taking action.
This phenomenon has come to be known as “it’s not really happening, but it’s a good thing that it is.”
Washington Post far-left ideologue Philip Bump was the latest liberal media activist to deny that “Zuckerbucks” funded Democrat turnout operations in 2020, but that it was really a good thing that it did happen.
Much of the analysis in the Federalist article centers on the idea that these investments were larger in more-Democratic counties, using that as a peg for the argument that the investments were partisan and critical to Biden’s success.
But that argument is easily countered. CTCL’s investments were often in heavily Democratic areas — because those areas often have lower turnout rates. If you want to increase turnout, the smartest place to try to do so is places where turnout is lowest. In the United States, that’s often lower-income communities and communities that have high populations of Black and Hispanic residents, two groups that often vote heavily Democratic.
Bump claims to be a data-driven political analyst and he never really refuted The Federalist’s argument.
Instead, Bump told readers that it was a good thing private money funded turnout operations in heavily Democrat areas.
“This is the argument that Musk asks us to consider. With rhetoric cobbled together to more easily defend Trump’s ‘stolen election’ claims, the argument is that efforts to target low-turnout communities are centrally an effort to get more Democrats to vote — and therefore nefarious, even though it amounts to nothing more than allowing more eligible voters to vote,” Bump concluded.
