It looks as though Michelle Obama is getting involved in trying to make sure the next midterm elections in 2022 (hard to believe that’s this year) is ready to be rigged and she’s willing to do her part.
From Georgia and Florida to Iowa and Texas, states passed laws designed to make it harder for Americans to vote. And in other state legislatures across the nation, lawmakers have attempted to do the same.
This type of voter suppression is not new. Generations of Americans have persevered through poll taxes, literacy tests, and laws designed to strip away their power—and they’ve done it by organizing, by protesting, and most importantly, by overcoming the barriers in front of them in order to vote. And now, we’ve got to do the same. We’ve got to vote like the future of our democracy depends on it. And we must give Congress no choice but to act decisively to protect the right to vote and make the ballot box more accessible for everyone.
Then she promised that she’s going to recruit thousands of lawyers to protect voters in states where “freedom to vote is threatened”.
In 2020, millions made their voices heard at the polls. But now, folks who oppose that progress are making it harder to vote. That’s why I’m asking you to join @WhenWeAllVote and 30 other organizations to turn out more voters and urge Congress to pass voting rights legislation. pic.twitter.com/hwgyyuTGy9
If she was really pushing voter rights, then fine. I’m totally okay with that. Voting rights belong to the citizens of this country. Not people who come over here from Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, or any other country for that matter. But will they be enforcing that they don’t vote? Nope. They’re just going to make sure that every person who is likely to vote Democrat is able to vote.
Their biggest problem, or so they claim, seems to be with everyone not getting to vote because we want all voters to present a valid ID. They claim that this is discriminatory and racist because they have it in their minds that black people can’t get IDs or go to voting stations for some reason.
Okay, well the second part they’re trying to fix with universal mail-in voting, but we would still want an ID with that ballot. There should be no problem with that whatsoever. We ask for ID for everything else in the world now, even COVID passports to buy a freaking hamburger, but we can’t ask for an ID to choose the leaders of the country?
