Publisher Of 2,000 Mules Apologizes, Yanks Film From All Platforms


Dinesh D’Souza’s 2,000 Mules had red flags all over it, proving that the claims were not credible. My favorite is the map of Atlanta in the movie. The only problem with it was that it was a stock image of Moscow. D’Souza financially benefited from the lies unleashed by the man who pardoned him: Donald J. Trump. It’s always a grift with these morally bankrupt people.

And now the publishing group behind D’Souza’s film is apologizing to a Georgia man after 2,000 Mules falsely accused him of ballot fraud during the 2020 election. Whoops! And it sounds like part of a defamation settlement agreement. It’s definitely not the company’s guilty conscience that prompted this.

Yahoo News reports:

On its website, Salem Media Group said it is “America’s leading radio broadcaster, Internet content provider, and magazine and book publisher targeting audiences interested in Christian and family-themed content and conservative values.”

The group said in the statement that it has “removed the film from Salem’s platforms, and there will be no future distribution of the film or the book by Salem.”

The widely debunked film includes surveillance video showing Mark Andrews, his face blurred, putting five ballots in a drop box in Lawrenceville, an Atlanta suburb, as a voiceover by conservative pundit and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza says: “What you are seeing is a crime. These are fraudulent votes.”

“It was never our intent that the publication of the 2000 Mules film and book would harm Mr. Andrews. We apologize for the hurt the inclusion of Mr. Andrews’ image in the movie, book, and promotional materials have caused Mr. Andrews and his family,” the statement said.

What was Andrews doing?

A state investigation found that Andrews was dropping off ballots for himself, his wife and their three adult children, who all lived at the same address. That is legal in Georgia, and an investigator said there was no evidence of wrongdoing by Andrews.

The film uses research from True the Vote, a Texas-based nonprofit, and suggests that ballot “mules” aligned with Democrats were paid to illegally collect and deliver ballots in Georgia and four other closely watched states. An Associated Press analysis found that it is based on faulty assumptions, anonymous accounts and improper analysis of cellphone location data.

Salem said it “relied on representations by Dinesh D’Souza and True the Vote, Inc. (” TTV”) that the individuals depicted in the videos provided to us by TTV, including Mr. Andrews, illegally deposited ballots.”

Of course, True the Vote is involved. Last February, the group told a Georgia judge that it didn’t have any evidence to support its claims of illegal ballot stuffing during the 2020 general election and the runoff just two months later.

Every accusation is a confession. And it turns out that the main character in this shitty timeline we’re living through that propagated the Big Stupid Lie is now a convicted felon. The film and the book have been removed from Salem’s platforms, and “there will be no future distribution of the film or the book by Salem”.
