Biden attacked the Democratic process
Back in 2013, Joe Biden declared that Al Gore had won the 2000 presidential election, stating that he walked away from an election that was “stolen from him” by being the bigger man.
Such a statement was an attack on the democratic process, which goes against everything Biden and the Democrats are saying today about how Trump lost the 2020 election “fair and square.”
Back in January, Biden lashed out against those protesting against the 2020 election results.
“We’re facing the most significant test of our democracy since the Civil War,” Biden said, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.
“That’s not hyperbole — since the Civil War.”
“Confederates back then never breached the Capitol as insurrectionists did on Jan. 6,” he said.
Biden says Trump supporters are worse than slave-owning Confederates: “We are facing the most significant test of our democracy since the Civil War. That’s not hyperbole…The Confederates back then never breached the Capitol as insurrectionists did”

Biden blasted those calling his win fraudulent, claiming they fell for the “big lie” pushed by Trump.
“The big lie is just that: a big lie,” Biden said.
“You don’t call facts ‘fake’ and then try to bring down the American experiment just because you’re unhappy.
“That’s not statesmanship, that’s selfishness.
“That’s not democracy, that’s the denial of the right to vote.
“It suppresses. It subjugates.”
But way before Trump became president, Biden himself was questioning election results.
In 2013, Biden was introduced by Gore before a speech in Massachusetts:
“This man was elected president of the United States of America,” Biden said of Gore during a campaign event for then-Democratic Senate candidate Ed Markey.
“But for the good of the nation, when the bad decision, in my view, was made, he did the right thing for the nation.”
“Al, you set an example for this country that is going to live as long as recorded history, about the man who won by a decision that I think constitutional scholars now and in the future will conclude was an ill-fated decision,” he said.
Gore tried to make a case in 2000 that he’d won.
After a month of arguing against the election results, the then-vice president eventually conceded.
But years later, Biden was questioning the results of a presidential election.
The Western Journal wrote this:
The November election was a complete joke over the way it was handled in a number of battleground states, and if you question any of it, you could face a social media ban or other abuse. But it’s OK for Democrats to say anything they want.
Remember, it wasn’t all that long ago that failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton blamed her 2016 election loss to Trump on mysterious Russians.
Former insurrectionist Biden and other Democrats don’t want anyone questioning his supposedly historic win or auditing the votes. But a mere eight years ago, he attempted to campaign for Markey by portraying Bush as an illegitimate occupier of the White House.
So the very people calling Trump and his supporter’s insurrectionists, are actually ones themselves.
