Widely debunked conspiracy film, book ‘2000 Mules’ pulled; publisher apologies to persecuted voter



Remember “2000 Mules”? Film and book by Trump minion Dinesh D’Souza, which which alleged a widespread conspiracy by Democrats to steal the 2020 election?


It’s history. The conservative media outfit that published the book and film issued an apology and said it would halt distribution of the film and remove both the film and book from its platforms. (1,2)


Of course, “2000 Mules” was embraced by the Orange Convicted Felon (OCF).


In a statement posted to its website, Salem Media Group, Inc. apologized specifically to Mark Andrews, a voter from Georgia falsely depicted illegally voting in “2,000 Mules.”


The Georgia Bureau of Investigation cleared Andrews of wrongdoing, and found he was legally dropping off ballots for members of his family. Andrews filed a defamation lawsuit against Salem, as well as the team behind the movie: right wing commentator Dinesh D’Souza, and the group True the Vote. (3)


Though “2,000 Mules” has been widely debunked by law enforcement officials and the media, including NPR, the film and book developed a widespread following among supporters of the false claim that the 2020 election was stolen. (4,5,6)


According to Andrews’ lawsuit, the allegations in “2,000 Mules” led to violent threats against him and his family. “They worry that again they will be baselessly accused of election crimes, and that believers in the ‘mules’ theory may recognize and seek reprisal against them, and that they may face physical harm,” the lawsuit alleged. (7,8)


The introduction to Andrews’s lawsuit begins, “The lie that the 2020 election was stolen through mass voter fraud represents an existential threat to American democracy.” (8)


Nothing could be truer.
