Fox News personality Tucker Carlson believes Michelle Obama’s push for mail-in voting as a means to open up the election during the coronavirus crisis could “destroy” democracy itself. tucker carlson michelle obama
“Former First Lady Michelle Obama is using this crisis to promote the radical expansion of nationwide voting by mail,” he revealed during a monologue this week.
“Citizens could request ballots online, and print them at home. No serious person has ever suggested that before,” he claimed. “It would instantly destroy the public’s faith in election outcomes, and hence our democracy itself.”
Democrats Capitalize on a Crisis
Carlson warned that a population distracted by the current pandemic could open themselves up to a system that would exponentially increase voter fraud.
“If there was ever a time to sneak something this crazy past a beleaguered and distracted population, this is it,” Carlson warned.
He’s right – Take a look at all of the liberties and freedoms we have willingly forfeited under the guise of government protecting the people during a crisis.

The former First Lady announced earlier this week that her celebrity voting rights group – When We All Vote – would embrace legislation currently being pushed by congressional Democrats to expand mail-in voting.
“There is nothing partisan about striving to live up to the promise of our country; making the democracy we all cherish more accessible; and protecting our neighbors, friends and loved ones as they participate in this cornerstone of American life,” she told the publication.
Using a trusty Liberal-English dictionary, one learns that ‘making democracy more accessible’ actually means opening up the elections to fraud. Illegal votes, voting using dead people’s names, and so on.

Mrs. Obama isn’t the only prominent Democrat still bitter about the 2016 election trying to drive through mail-in voting in the midst of a crisis.
Hillary Clinton recently demanded Congress “make voting by mail the norm going forward.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been trying to slip in language to coronavirus relief packages in an attempt to expand vote-by-mail.

A bipartisan electoral reform commission in 2005 concluded that mail-in voting creates privacy issues and “increases the risk of fraud.”
ProPublica has reported that voting by mail creates “opportunities for voter fraud” and could actually reduce voter turnout. Something Democrats claim they are trying to prevent.
The only thing they see is an opportunity to allow people to vote without any form of identification, using a mail system that could easily result in ‘lost’ or even ‘found’ ballots.
We must not let this happen.
