'Biden did you know?': Christian commentator Eric Metaxas alleges election fraud with parody music video

by Will Maule

Conservative Christian radio host and theologian Eric Metaxas has performed his own version of the classic Christmas song 'Mary did you know' in a bid to shed light on allegations of fraud in the US election. Metaxas, who is known for his bestselling biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, exchanged the lyrics of the 1984 classic with claims of voter fraud and corruption within the Democratic establishment. 

“Joe Biden, did you know that the Democrats would give ballots to illegals?” he sings, while wearing a pair of pink novelty glasses with "2020" written across them. “Biden, did you know that the Democrats wiped the servers past retrieval? Did you know that the Democrats could magically turn the tide? That you wouldn’t need any voters to land you your landslide?” 

The video, uploaded to Metaxas's YouTube channel, has since been removed following a copyright claim from Capitol CMG Publishing, who own the rights to cover version as performed by vocal group Pentatonix. Metaxas can be seen singing along in front of a cardboard cut-out of his children's book character 'Donald the Caveman', who he based on President Trump. Another cut-out appears to depict the 'My Pillow guy', businessman Michael Lindell, who is also a staunch supporter of Trump. 

During the course of the song, Metaxas suggests that mail-in ballots were cast by dead people and claims that Biden was helped to victory by Venezuela and billionaire investor George Soros. 

Metaxas has backed President Trump's unsubstantiated claims that the election was "stolen" from him through a range of nefarious fraud tactics.

Yesterday, Metaxas promoted an online prayer gathering, billed as a "special live prayer event for election integrity and against election fraud".

"Join us now to pray against election fraud!" he tweeted. 

This week, an electronic voting company hit back at claims it helped swing the election for Biden. Florida-based Smartmatic has issued letters to Fox News, Rudy Giuliani and other Trump allies threatening litigation and instructing them to fully retract their false statements about the company's activities. 

"The damage your disinformation campaign has done, and will do, to Smartmatic’s revenue and business valuation will be measured in the hundreds of millions, if not billions, of dollars,” one of the letters read, according to the Associated Press. 

President-elect Biden has asked Mr Trump to accept his victory after the Electoral College confirmed the outcome on Monday.
