(Preston Parra, Headline USA) Georgia gubernatorial candidate and election-denying insurrectionist Stacey Abrams attempted to squash the big headline in her home state, which she thinks is a worthless pit, that there was enormous voter turnout for the primaries, even in minority communities.
That fact goes against the leftist lie and Abrams’ harping rhetoric painting Georgia as a state that uses white supremacist Jim Crow 2.0 laws to deliberately and efficiently suppress the black vote.
Georgia’s primaries proved just the opposite.
The state’s voter turnout skyrocketed by more than three-quarters-of-a-million people, shattering the previous record, with impressive gains across the political spectrum and in record-breaking early voting.
Democrat turnout topped 720,000, a cosmic increase from 2018, even though Abrams ran unopposed and Democrat Sen. Raphael Warnock faced virtually no opposition.
“Turnout spiked. Voter participation flourished in a record-setting manner.”
Unless it’s in your politically venal nature to deny a reality that doesn’t fit a specific narrative. In this case, it’s that Georgia’s Election Integrity Act of 2021 was designed by racist Republicans to suppress minority voters. Democrats, including President Biden and Abrams, called the new law “Jim Crow in the 21st Century.”
Abrams wasn’t about to let record-breaking voter turnout break that false narrative.
“The question about voter suppression and voter turnout is causation without correlation,” Abrams dissembled.
“We know— ha—I’m sorry,” she stumbled. “You make mistakes, even when you know what you’re talking about.”
Abrams obviously didn’t.
“It’s correlation without causation. We know that increased turnout has nothing to do with suppression.”
Update: Turnout exceeded 1.9 million in Georgia’s 2022 primaries. https://t.co/nytkZLIYMN
