Democrats are once again screaming at the top of their lungs about racism after the Georgia GOP added a voter ID requirement in an effort to try and increase the state’s election security. However, the biggest problem with this hissy-fit is that the vast majority of individuals who have been polled on the ID law have been in favor of it.
And, much to the chagrin of radical leftists out there, this includes a lot of blacks and minority voters.
According to a new report from Western Journal, “Earlier this month, the Georgia state Senate passed S.B. 202 that included common sense measures like tightening procedures for polling locations and requiring voters to present identification to request and cast absentee ballots.”
“Democratic critics have charged that the bill is voter suppression fueled by white supremacy, using the default accusation that has become their Pavlovian response to all Republican-initiated legislation,” the WJ report continues.
“Democratic Georgia state Rep. Park Cannon committed so fully to that narrative that she attempted to stop Republican Gov. Brian Kemp from signing the bill into law and was arrested for trying to disrupt the proceedings,” the report continued.
After Cannon was released from custody, she took to social media giant Twitter in order to create a tweet thread in which she linked this particular bill to white supremacy, because, well, if all else fails, just call someone a racist.
President Joe Biden called the measure “sick” and went on to describe it as the “most pernicious thing” at his first solo news conference.
“This makes Jim Crow look like Jim Eagle. I mean, this is gigantic what they’re trying to do, and it cannot be sustained,” he said to reporters during one of his usual barely coherent rambles. Many individuals who are in the mainstream media have called these voter ID laws “racially motivated voter suppression tactics.”
The results of a recent Rasmussen poll, however, painted a very different story.
The vast majority of whites, blacks, and other minorities think it’s only fair for voters to show up and prove their identities before being allowed to vote.
Heck, even 60 percent of Democrats, along with 80 percent of Republicans and 77 percent of voters who aren’t affiliated with a political party responded that they support voter ID laws. And for a kicker, nearly 70% of blacks polled support voter ID.
The real kicker out of all this is that despite so many people agreeing with these laws, not very many folks seem to be trying to do anything about the Democrats continuing to propagandize it as voter suppression.
