Today’s quote comes to us from Stacey Abrams, that nice lady who lost the race for Governor of Georgia last year, and still has refused to concede on the grounds that, well, actually she won.
Now, not content with her ridiculous contention that a race she lost by over 50,000 votes was somehow stolen from her (by suppressing primarily Black votes, of course), Ms. Abrams is now assuring us that Republicans will subvert the Black vote in 2020, thus tossing the election to Donald Trump.
Here is her “logic”:
“We know that we also face foreign influence that is being denied by the White House, by the would-be tinpot dictator of Donald Trump, but also that Moscow Mitch is stopping voter rights legislation and election security legislation. But we also know they just lifted a consent decree that’s kept Republicans and the RNC from going into local communities and intimidating voters by having off-duty officers tell people that they are monitoring their votes.”
“For the first time since 1981, the RNC will be allowed to cheat and lie and go into polling places and scare voters, particularly voters of color. Fair Fight 2020 is designed to anticipate all those challenges, but not just worry about them, work against them and that’s what we learned from 2018. We cannot wait for the cavalry to come. We have to be the army and we have to stand up now.”
Does anyone have the slightest idea what she is talking about?
Evidently the idea is not only to have no voter ID, but also to assure people in Black areas that nobody will monitor whether the voting was conducted legally too. That, you see, would be “cheating and lying”.
And if you find any problem with this? It’s an affront to people of color. You must be a racist.
I award Quote Of The Day “honors” to Stacey Abrams For showing us another example of either her extreme racial paranoia or her extreme racial dishonesty. Maybe both.
