The state of Georgia has passed The Election Integrity Act and the ‘woke’ are already twisting words. Tony Katz addresses just some of the lies that are being spouted out about the new bill.
LIE ONE: IT’S JIM CROW ALL OVER AGAIN
The biggest lie that’s circulating every media outlet is the idea that Georgia’s new voter laws are Jim Crow 2.0. Several correspondents, journalists, and the president himself has compared the bill to the mandated racial segregation during the Reconstruction period… A horrendous time in history full of racial violence and grotesque bigotry is just not comparable to providing an ID to be able to cast a vote.
Tony Katz says this tactic of proclaiming “voter suppression for black voters” is just another way the left spins the narrative.
It’s just a way to get people to stop talking. “Oh my gosh, it’s racist, just like Jim Crow laws…” They have no idea what they are talking about. They are gleeful in their ignorance. But what does the ignorance matter? You hear Jim Crow, you know Jim Crow is bad, and you don’t want to be on the side that favors bad.
LIE TWO: VOTER LINES ARE LIMITED ON TIME
Polls open only from 9am-5pm on Election Day is just not true. This lie in particular has been pushed by President Biden as he was talking to ESPN, “This is all about keeping working folks and ordinary folks that I grew up with from being able to vote.” The Washington Post along with several others called him out on this. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution even had to correct themselves. Tony clarifies,
You can still vote 7 am-7 pm. The counties can decide when that is. The voting time is 9am-5pm, but the counties can extend two hours in either direction, which is 7-7 the same as it’s always been.
LIE THREE: POLLING STATIONS CANNOT PROVIDE BOTTLED WATER
Another “issue” Democrats have is the restriction of passing out bottled water. They say it’s appalling that voters can’t even get water while in line at the voting polls. Governor Brian Kemp states what the actual verbiage is in an opinion piece for Fox.
“Within 150 feet of the precinct, election officials may provide water at stations. Beyond 150 feet, as previous Georgia law allowed, private individuals may campaign and provide food and water for voters.”
So if you’re in Georgia come election time grab your ID, a bottle of water, and you’ll be just fine.
