The following is an adapted excerpt from the book, “Myth of Voter Suppression: The Left’s Assault on Clean Elections.”
In March 2021, President Joe Biden signed an executive order directing every federal agency to focus on voter registration and participation in what appears to be a federally-backed get-out-the-vote effort.
Don’t worry. We are assured this will be nonpartisan.
The White House came back in September 2021 to explain federal agencies will be working with “nonpartisan” groups. But the Biden administration hasn’t given many details about how this order is being implemented and who these nonpartisans are. What’s key is that the executive order almost mirrors exactly what the left-wing group Demos produced in a policy brief shortly after Biden was elected.
While other groups on the left often attempt to sound reasonable and pragmatic, Demos shows ideological leg with phrases like, “transforming America,” “rethinking capitalism,” and “global governance.” So the liberal New York think tank’s “Democracy Program” strikes one of its least-threatening tones. Don’t be fooled. It’s about weaponizing the federal government to sign up as many Democrat voters as possible.
Demos issued a report on December 3, 2020, titled, “Executive Action to Advance Democracy: What the Biden-Harris Administration and the Agencies Can Do to Build a More Inclusive Democracy.” Less than two months after taking office, Biden issued an executive order nearly identical to the Demos demands about politicizing federal agencies.
