Facts are supposed to be the primary tool for presenting an argument. That is not what Legacy or social media runs with. Georgia’s new voting bill is the latest victim of the left’s unrelenting attack on anything an “R” supports, and innocent casualties in their wake are no concern to them.
Georgia’s new voter bill expands early voting to 17 days, including two Saturdays and two optional Sundays, keeps ballot drop-boxes, allows no-excuse absentee voting, and expands voter verification to include state ID, last four numbers of social security numbers, or even a utility bill.
The left wants to portray this as the new “Jim Crow” law, or that requiring any voter verification as racist. The soft bigotry that they imply certain races or minorities don’t have ID’s or can’t find a voting precinct is downright offensive.
For the 2018 midterm elections, Georgia had greater black turnout than whites.
What about no food or water? Nearly all states, such as New York, prohibits “campaigning” to poll goers; distributing food or water, wearing or passing out campaign materials, bribing or soliciting poll goers near the precincts. What is allowed is for the polling place to hand out the food or water or the campaigning to stay back 150 feet from the polling place.
Racial agitators, such as Stacy Abrams, Raphael Warnock, and the Great Unifier Joe Biden, attacked this bill immediately, planting a false narrative and pressuring Major League Baseball to move their All-Star game from Atlanta to Denver, resulting in a projected loss of $100 million to Georgia.
Colorado’s not-so-different election laws include 15 days of early voting, requires voter ID, and no distributing food or water near precinct.
Furthermore, Atlanta is 51 percent black, while Denver is only 9 percent!
So, what was that word again when someone’s actions disproportionately and negatively affecting one race over another?
When these arbiters of division carry out their next smear campaign, will you listen, or will you step back and find the facts? Will you seek open and honest discussion of the topics? Will you be critical, without strictly condemning?
