      You cant be a GOP supporter in 2022 or beyond without being part of an historically awful AND UNDENIABLE effort to suppress minority voting. There are more than 150 GOP bills across the states focused on suppressing minority voting, so just one example: GEORGIA

      The Georgia bill is loaded with voter suppression, but one particularly indefensible provision stands out:

      Historically speaking there is high, church-driven AFRICAN AMERICAN early voting in Georgia on Sundays (in part because AA polling stations have typically been limited (intentionally), a topic addressed heavily in the Voting Rights Act, so that led to AA’s voting early and on a day where they did not otherwise have to work.

      So, Georgia’s Republican legislature wants it to be illegal to vote on Sundays

      “Georgia’s three-week early voting period would be limited to operate between 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. from Monday to Friday, with an additional voting period at the same time on the second Saturday before the election. Counties would have the option of extending voting to 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. but casting ballots on any other days, including all Sundays, would be strictly prohibited.

      https://www.newsweek.com/georgia-gop-wants-end-early-voting-sundays-put-new-limits-absentee-ballots-1570395

      and . . OF COURSE . . the provision is dropped into a 43 page omnibus bill at the last second (no doubt by someone with a sheet over their head)

      “”In today’s committee hearing, the presentation of the bill was choppy, inconsistent, and incomplete, under-representing the impacts of this proposal on Georgia voters,” they continued. “We the undersigned demand that further hearings on HB 531 not be held until Monday, February 22 at the earliest – to give advocates and legislators time to properly read and fully analyze the profound legal implications of this bill.”

      AND ITS HAPPENING NATIONWIDE

      ” A recent analysis from the Brennan Center indicated that lawmakers in 33 states had already introduced 165 bills aimed at restricting voting by early February, nearly five times the number of similar bills introduced at the same point in 2020.”

      Claire? Verbatim left wing talking points but coming from a Republican? Weird.

      What an offensive thread title by the way. Not a troll at all right?

      Not a troll. Serious.

      The guys who push your policy agenda are openly racist to get power

      To be a supporter of the Trump GOP you have to be a racist (suppression and aligned with white supremacists) and a fascist (140 plus tried to overturn the election)

      Hide it from your conscience by making bogus claims of fraud if you want

      @Jbear

      You had no explanation for the Sunday ban?

      Georgia. The state that needed the federal threat to actually prosecute two white boys who executed a black boy.

      You recall that case, right?

      Trumplicans have galvanized around “calling things racist is always an exaggeration”.

      So you can’t call something racist anymore…

      It is taboo (ironically)

      Not sure how any American can support this
