(FiveNation.com)- A 70-year-old black woman who spoke with the media expressed amazement at how simple voting was for her. She claims she was told that Republicans would attempt to dissuade black people in any way they could because they didn’t vote Republican in the last election when Trump lost. So she was taken aback by how easy it was to vote and be treated with the respect that she believed she deserved as an American citizen.
Georgians had cast roughly 800,000 ballots. According to the office of Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, it is three times that of 2018 and much more than 2020.
Raffensperger explained to a cable news outlet that major news organizations joined Stacey Abrams and Joe Biden in calling Georgia’s Election Integrity Act ‘Jim Crow’ and claimed it restricted voting. SB 202 enacted common-sense improvements to help Georgians have faith in their elections. The fact that early vote turnout is at an all-time high, even among minorities, confirms that the Abrams/Biden narrative was a lie, he charged.
During an interview on MSNBC, Ali Velshi questioned liberal columnist Eugene Robinson if he agreed with Biden’s comparison of the legislation to Jim Crow.
Robinson said it was, adding that Jim Crow laws were in effect when he grew up.
Joy Reid of MSNBC also called the legislation “Jim Crow “ and the end of democracy in America and the beginning of a strategy reminiscent of apartheid South Africa.
CNN anchor Don Lemon also claimed it was the “new Jim Crow.”
Political analyst April Ryan called the GOP a party against the “browning” of America and accused them of cheating at the polls. A New York Times opinion columnist even claimed that the law was at least “Jim Crow-adjacent.”
But according to a CNN report, with just months until the midterm elections, it has become increasingly evident that a Republican wave is forming across the country. An allegedly non-partisan political election reporting service raised its estimates for GOP gains between twenty and thirty-five seats.
Reporting shows President Biden’s job approval is underwater in dozens of districts he carried in 2020. Any Democrat sitting in a single-digit Biden seat is in danger, and even the seats that Biden carried by ten to fifteen points could be lost.
