Georgia’s 2021 voter ID law was supposed to usher in a new era of “Jim Crow 2.0,” according to Democrats. President Joe Biden said it would make that previous era of American history look like “Jim Eagle.”
Democrats at large, including current Peach Tree State gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, warned that millions of minorities would be disenfranchised.
Except the opposite has happened.
Since early voting began on October 17, more than one million people have voted via early voting and absentee ballots. That has smashed previous records. When asked about that fact, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre offered up a cacophony of excuses.
“As you know, I have to be careful. I cannot get into politics from here,” Jean-Pierre said, despite the fact she seems to slam “MAGA Republicans” in midterms and “election deniers” every other day.
She claimed that Republicans have been promoting anti-voting laws around the country despite not providing any examples.
“The president has been very clear that based on the ‘Big Lie’ there have been a host of anti-voter policies forced on states that challenge America’s fundamental right to vote, the access to voting,” she claimed. “So this is against our most basic values, including respect for the law and the constitution.”
The “Big Lie” of course refers to former President Donald J. Trump’s belief that there was election fraud in the 2020 presidential election. According to KJP, implying that American elections aren’t secure is tantamount to being a traitor.
Of course, as documented, KJP herself is an “election denier.” Nevertheless, she persisted — as the Beltway loves to say.
“Speaking generally of course, but more broadly, high turnout and voter suppression can take place at the same time,” she added. “One doesn’t have to happen on its own. They can be happening at the same time, but I will leave it there without being able to really dig into the politics of this.”
Common sense would dictate that if voter suppression was occurring anywhere in Georgia, then a record amount of minorities would be reporting that they have been barred from voting.
Quite the opposite, the share of black voters in Georgia has actually increased from 2020, according to Politico.
“At this point in 2020, Black voters made up 33 percent of the share of the electorate, and in 2022, they’re up to 35 percent,” the outlet reported.
Yet Democrats can’t admit that a Republican voting law actually helped increase democratic participation, so instead, they bloviate and makeup nonsense.
The party’s entire midterm plan is to deny reality.
Up is down, right is wrong. Men are women. Abortion is healthcare. Biden is competent. Record voting turnout is voter suppression.
