The cries against Georgia’s General Assembly for restructuring their voter laws have driven the entire nation to choose sides: one (controlled by the “Cancel Culture”) that wants NO rules in how, when, and where voting happens and one (that includes all “thinking” American citizens) who ARE concerned about the security of our voting system and think that proving one who casts a vote is the person who is legally registered and authorized to cast that vote.
So What is Going On?
It’s not unusual for a major U.S. Corporation or two to bow to the Cancel Culture Mob and “cancel” some benign cause or small company. Their doing so usually rises from some issue the elitists who comprise Cancel Culture have deemed to be egregious to the entire world but are grievous ONLY to those elitists.
What is unusual is that President Joe Biden is so committed to bipartisan cooperation and fact-based governance that he’s launched an ignorant and incendiary attack on the new Georgia voting law.
Biden says the new law is “Jim Crow in the 21st century” and “an un-American law to deny people the right to vote.”
Biden’s attack has been joined by Major League Baseball, Coca-Cola, and Delta Airlines. All three are international monsters who rely on the members of the Cancel Culture for their very existence. Two of the three counts on Cancel Culture’s adherents to buy products, tickets, and paid advertising. The third’s existence is based totally on the travel market smiling at all they do.
How dare a state make voting laws more inclusive, easier, and safer!
It’s now practically mandatory for Democrats to launch such unhinged broadsides. Elizabeth Warren, accusing Georgia governor Brian Kemp of having stolen his 2018 election victory over Democratic activist Stacey Abrams (a poisonous myth), tweeted, “The Republican who is sitting in Stacey Abrams’ chair just signed a despicable voter suppression bill into law to take Georgia back to Jim Crow.”
- The old Jim Crow was billy clubs and fire hoses; the alleged new Jim Crow asks people to write a driver’s license number on their absentee-ballot envelopes.
- The old Jim Crow was poll taxes; the new Jim Crow is expanding weekend voting.
- The old Jim Crow disenfranchised voters en masse based on their race; the new Jim Crow is limiting ballot drop boxes to places they can’t be tampered with.
It’s hard to believe that one real voter will be kept from voting by the new rules.
To better ensure security, the law requires that voters provide a driver’s license or state ID number to apply for a ballot and one of those numbers (or the last four digits of a Social Security number) when returning the ballot.
