Early Georgia Voting Begins and Already There Is a Projected Loser – Voter Suppression – Opinion

The local news outlet that predicted rampant voting rights abuses has to sheepishly admit otherwise…

Take a moment and reminisce. 

Sit with me as we recall all of the hysteria and accusatory promises of democracy-rendering intolerance and racism attached to the law passed recently known as the Georgia Election Integrity Act, or, as many opponents and the press described it, “Voter Suppression Law”! – (exclamation point optional). Peach State residents were predicted to experience a variety of terrible results from this new law.

This law would unfairly target minorities, as was the promise. The law would restrict access to the polls, and help Republicans by making it harder for voters of color to vote. Translated — Democrats. Joe Biden referred to this law as “Jim Crow steroids! It’s Jim Eagle!” Stacey Abrams cemented her stature as the most victorious losing Democrat. Numerous corporations like Delta Airlines, Coca-Cola, and Delta Airlines raised concerns and threatened legal action against the state. Georgia is deemed a more serious human rights violator that countries such as China where corporations are not held accountable. 

Major League Baseball pulled the All-Star game from Atlanta in support of African voters. The Braves’ ballpark was located in Denver, where they built the Mid-Summer Classic. This was detrimental to many inner-city black businesses. Well now, why don’t take a look at the early returns of this horrendous and hateful racist law.

Hold on a second – what’s that now?! A “turnout record” was seen on the first day of early voting? 

The first day of early voting in Georgia was a record-breaking success. More than 500,000 voters cast ballots, nearly two times as many as at the beginning of the 2020 primaries.

That would almost seem to indicate that the months of wailing, crying, histrionics, and accusations from the press/Democrats/virtue signalers/woke corporations were complete and utter fertilizer-grade commentary. More revealing is this is a report from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the local paper that never held back from detailing the horrors this new law was promised to deliver.

From the AJC, we were shown many facets of the oppression inflicted upon Georgians. To Black voters are not eligible for votingOver ID requirements to amplify the opposition From the Biden administrationTo highlight How many companies came out against you?The new law. We now witness the complete opposite of what we were promised after one year of hyperbolic coverage. 

Day two saw even more votes.

The GOP has a slight edge in turnout, but the number of Democrats who arrive shows that both the GOP’s claims about stifled access to the vote and denial of their voting rights are completely false. The AJC was forced to admit this at one time last year. 

After another report was published about discriminatory law, the paper needed to correct it. After giving plenty of inches of column space to local Hollywood celebrity Tyler Perry – who called the law unconstitutional and requested the DOJ look into things – the paper had to shoehorn a retraction at the end of the piece.

CORRECTION: In an earlier version, this story stated that the new law would reduce voting hours. Georgia will hold its election on Election Day. You can find us open between 7 a.m. and 7 p.mYou can cast your vote if you’re in line before 7 p.m. The new law does not change these rules. However, some amendments were made to the law regarding early voting. This bill creates an additional Saturday for early voting in general elections, but it also removes the two week period of prior voting that was available before runningoffs.

Keep in mind that this paper is based out of the capital of the state. They should have been well-informed about the laws they were busy blaming with regularity. This admission was placed at the bottom of a celebrity thought experiment is one thing. However, it didn’t stop outraged coverage over the next months.

Like Texas which witnessed early voting in primaries bring victories to rising numbers of minorities in spite of promises of racist restrictions. Georgia, too, is now showing that the hype surrounding the sane voter legislation was more about the dirty tricks of party manipulators. The voters, meanwhile, almost appear to be flourishing in a climate of “voter suppression.”
