Democrats Were Proven Wrong…

(FreedomWire,org) – When Georgia revised its election laws in 2021, the National Urban League called it, “one of the most insidious partisan attacks on voting rights in history.”  

The law’s changes included, measures to prevent government agencies from mailing applications unsolicited, require using driver’s licenses or some other form of photo ID instead of signature-matching to verify their identity in absentee ballot applications, and codifying ballot drop boxes into law. It mandated precincts hold at least 17 days of early voting and left in place no-excuse absentee voting, while shortening the window to apply for ballots to 67 days. 

The left wanted Americans to believe that somehow adds up to a stunning and unprecedented voting-suppression mechanism. 

Democratic politicians weighed in, to condemn Georgia’s law.

“It’s racist…Jim Crow in a suit and tie,” said Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacy Abrams

“A large step…away from democracy and freedom and toward authoritarianism and repression,” said New Jersey senator Cory Booker  

“Anti-American, racist, and a betrayal of our Constitution,” said California Rep. Ro Khanna

President Joe Biden, made a characteristically garbled comparison that ended up saying the opposite of what he intended, “This makes Jim Crow look like Jim Eagle…I mean, this is gigantic!”

Activists called for boycotts of Delta Air Lines, Home Depot and other companies headquartered in the Peach State. “The pressure isn’t going to relent on @CocaCola and other Georgia-based companies over this Georgia Jim Crow law,” tweeted MSNBC’s Joy Reid.

In the most visible economic consequence, Major League Baseball succumbed to the contrived hysteria and moved its 2021 All-Star game from Atlanta to Denver. Even-though Colorado voting laws are much more restrictive than Georgia’s, or that many black Georgians were victimized by the loss of $100 million in tourism revenue redirected from 50%-black Atlanta to 9%-black Denver.

Now according to Tuesday night’s results, early voting in the state of Georgia shattered records, including among minorities. Overall turnout broke primary records, too, with more than 1.9 million Georgians having cast their ballots, compared to 1.16 million in 2018. 

 The Republicans’ counterargument is that the legislation clearly has not prevented record numbers from casting ballots.

“The incredible turnout we have seen demonstrates once and for all that Georgia’s Election Integrity Act struck a good balance between the guardrails of access and security,” Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said.

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp agreed, saying Democrats’ talk of suppression is meant to get their base riled up to vote, the Times reported.

“They don’t want to know what the truth is,” he told supporters at a Saturday campaign event in Watkinsville. “They don’t care what the truth is. They want to talk about the narrative that drives their base and helps their political polling.”
