Republicans are being accused of racism for supporting a common sense law that requires voters to present proper identification.
While campaigning in South Carolina, Sleepy Joe Biden declared that the Grand Old Party intended to use voter identification laws in the same manner Jim Crow laws were used to prevent black votes from being accepted.
“Folks, last year, 24 states introduced or enacted at least 70 bills to curtail the right to vote and guess what, mostly directed at people of color. You see it. We’ve got Jim Crow sneaking back in. No, I mean it. Why? Why? Because they know. You saw what happened in North Carolina. You saw what happened in Georgia. You saw what happened in Florida. Why? Cause you know if everybody has an equal right to vote, guess what, they lose,” Biden said.
This is a nonsense claim against clearly rational voter legislation. Voter ID laws are for fighting voter fraud from ineligible applicants like illegal immigrants or convicted felons.
Curious that those would be groups that Democrats have been attempting to use to bolster their own votes. The issue has nothing to do with race.
