Georgia has recently passed a bill into law that has made Democrats furious.
And of course, when Democrats and their stooges in the media don’t like something, they lie about it.
In this case, the Georgia bill, called SB 202, is a bill meant to beef up the state’s election security measures after overwhelming evidence emerged that significant amounts of election fraud occurred in Georgia during both the 2020 presidential election and the subsequent Senate runoff elections that were held there.
In particular, the bill narrows the time window that one has for requesting an absentee ballot, strictly limits the number and distribution of voting drop boxes that can be used in the state—which were a significant source of election irregularities—and removes the secretary of state from his position as head of the state’s Election Board. Instead, the head of the Board will be elected by Georgia’s General Assembly.
The bill also prohibits a practice known as “line warming,” wherein campaign workers for some candidates can provide voters with food or refreshments while they stand in line.
Lastly, the bill demands that all who request absentee ballots show ID and also generally beef’s up the state’s voter ID requirements.
Naturally, the Democrats have been decrying this bill—which it was totally reasonable to pass in light of the recent election controversies in Georgia—as “racist” and “white supremacist.”
As is now well-known, anything which prevents Democrats from gaining power will be called “racist” or “white supremacist.”
But Joe Biden has recently taken things a step further. He wants to punish Georgia by preventing it from ever hosting the MLB All-Star Game.
Biden Invokes Cancel Culture to Punish Georgia
Biden recently discussed this subject with ESPN. One could call his comments insane and dangerous, but Democrats have issued so many insane and shocking comments of late that such things have simply lost their power to shock.
When the subject of athletes refusing to play the All-Star Game in Georgia came up, Biden said, “I think that today’s professional athletes are acting incredibly responsibly. I would strongly support them doing that.”
More likely, athletes are falling in line with cancel culture because they fear losing their careers.
“The very people who were victimized the most are the people who are the leaders in these various sports,” said Biden. But how does requiring ID to be shown before voting “victimize” anyone, let alone professional athletes?
Biden also claimed that the bill would prevent minority voters from voting because it orders polling stations to close at 5:00 p.m., but this is false because the bill expands times available for early voting and allows for voting on Saturdays and Sundays.
Biden then referred to the bill’s reasonable election security measures as “Jim Crow on steroids.”
Think about that. Telling people that they should be required to show an ID before being allowed to vote is “Jim Crow on steroids.”
And then, with no sense of irony, he suggested that athletes should shut out Georgia and do what amounts to segregating themselves from the state.
These people are acting like insane cult members. What else can one say about them?
