Videos obtained by The Washington Post show how a network of conservative activists has made opposition to mail-in ballots a central priority of the 2020 campaign. This is Bill Walton, executive committee president of the Council for National Policy, speaking in a closed-door gathering on August 21.
Bill Walton: “This is a spiritual battle we are in. This is good versus evil. … And we have to do everything we can to win.”
Another video filmed in August shows 26-year-old conservative activist Charlie Kirk celebrating the closure of college campuses due to the coronavirus, saying it will lead to Republican victories at the polls.
Charlie Kirk: “The Democrats have done a really foolish thing by shutting down all these campuses, foolish for them. It’s going to remove ballot harvesting opportunities and all their voter fraud that they usually do on college campuses. So, they’re actually removing like half a million votes off the table. So, please, keep the campuses closed. Like, it’s a great thing.”
