Byron York Views
York criticized President Bill Clinton in 2001 for pardoning Susan McDougal, who had served three months in prison for contempt of court in connection with her role in the Whitewater scandal. In his book The Vast Left Wing Conspiracy, York proposed a Democratic Party plot to “tear down” President George W. Bush in 2005. York urged President Bush in 2007 to grant Scooter Libby a full pardon after he was sentenced to prison for obstruction of justice, perjury, and making false statements in the Plame case.
York wrote an op-ed in 2010 titled “Obama has Himself to Fault for Muslim Problem,” in which he suggested that President Barack Obama was to blame for the prevalent belief that he was Muslim. Obama had written about his Muslim grandpa, according to York, who also mentioned that members of his extended family were Muslim. “Even a calm discussion of the matter has been screamed down by the Obama campaign,” York said, adding that “to the outside observer, Obama sometimes doesn’t appear to practice any faith at all.” Is it any surprise that the general population is perplexed?
York condemned former President George W. Bush’s statement that it was “time for America to examine our sad failings” during the George Floyd protests against racism and police brutality in 2020. Bush’s “near utter disregard” for rioting and violence, York added, was “extraordinary.”
York wrote a column for the Washington Examiner just before the 2020 presidential election, reviewing a statistical simulation that suggested Joe Biden would not accept the election if he lost. It was also alleged that Biden will put pressure on Democratic governors to reject Trump’s victory in their states, as well as House Democrats refusing to recognize Trump’s victory. York said in the piece that Joe Biden would refuse to concede and that Trump would not concede.
