Democrats are already prepping their talking points for November 9: The elections were stolen because Republicans suppressed voters of color.
It’s an old chestnut that liberals unshell every two years. Republicans aren’t just trying to clear voting rolls of those who have died or moved, no, they’re actively trying to disenfranchise as many Americans as they can.
The White House revealed its absurd talking points during a press briefing this week.
Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Tuesday said “voter suppression” and “high turnout” can take place at the same time when asked about election participation in Georgia. President Joe Biden said the state’s voting laws amount to “Jim Crow 2.0” — but Georgia is seeing record early voting turnout.
“And speaking generally of course, more broadly, of course, high turnout and voter suppression can take place at the same time,” she said. “They don’t have to be, one doesn’t have to happen on its own. They could be happening at the same time.”
Huh. So when you suppress the vote, you can get more votes. Hey, it makes perfect sense in BidenWorld, where 2+2 equals, well, whatever you want it to equal. Biden joined a boy who’s now a girl this week in a virtual chat, saying, sure, that makes sense, so why not voter suppression leading to high turnout?
Jean-Pierre, who really is one of the worst press secretaries to ever hold the post, was asked if the White House is “observing instances of voter suppression in Georgia and other states that adopted some of these laws over the last two years.”
The answer was spectacular.
“Look, we have seen ourselves, I just laid out — we’ve seen ourselves, from what legislation, state legislation we have seen across the country that is suppressing the right to vote, and look, we believe that people should have the fundamental access to voting,” she said.
Got it? Yes, that was unintelligible, but again, that makes sense in BidenWorld.
Let’s get real. Voter turnout is sky-high across America because voters are incensed — furious about soaring inflation, gas and food prices, out-of-control crime, and the mess at the southern border. Biden has plunged the U.S. into the worst economy in decades, which is driving people to the polls in droves.
Case in point: Georgia’s Secretary of State Office released numbers this week showing more than 400,000 voters had voted as of October 19, up 63% compared to the 2018 midterm elections. Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger told Fox News Digital that Georgia is on track to “break records in terms of voter turnout in every category.”
“In 2018, 223,576 Georgians voted by mail for governor. So far this year, we’ve received 239,789 requests for absentee ballots, 238,356 have been mailed out,” Raffensperger said. “We’ll exceed 2018’s total for mailed-in ballots. So far we’ve been breaking the early vote record set in 2018, and we’re approaching the early vote numbers in 2020.”
Politico, a liberal website founded by two reporters from The Washington Post, got into the act, too. The site dropped a 2,200-word piece saying blacks just aren’t coming out to vote and lamenting that the voting bloc that put Biden into office is souring on the doddering POTUS.
“After Black voters played a pivotal role in electing President Joe Biden two years ago, the strategists said that some Black voters believe that not enough has changed since, especially when it comes to the economy, gun violence, voting rights and criminal justice reform,” Politico wrote.
Well yeah, duh. Been to a city lately? It’s horrible. Homeless people everywhere. Crime out of control. Shocking that black voters are unhappy. Democrats assume blacks will always vote party line, but this year, maybe not.
So, black voters aren’t happy because the economy sucks, there’s too much gun violence, and criminals are walking free every day. Sound familiar? Yup, those are the issues “white” America cares about — step back a sec, we’re all Americans here and now battling the same things.
Democrats have run cities they control into the ground. Crime has soared as liberal mayors have embraced calls to “defund the police.” Black voters are all, nuh uh.
The “black vote” is going to be down this year, but not for the reasons Democrats say. They are starting to realize that the party they back does nothing for them — never has, never will.
And Republicans are about to pick up 50-some seats in the House. Even as they suppress the vote.
