Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, April 02, 2021

Go page by page through Georgia's new voting law, and one takeaway stands above all others: The Republican legislature and governor have made a breathtaking assertion of partisan power in elections, making absentee voting harder and creating restrictions and complications in the wake of narrow losses to Democrats.

AH, the article "What Georgia's Voting Law Really Does" is hidden behind the NYT paywall, where only white people can read it because everyone knows minorities are "potentialy confused", can't figure out the internet or afford to subscribe to the NYT. More evidence of systemic racism in the NYT. They must be in cahoots with those racist redneck GOP'ers in GA

Don't look now, but you're the only one making the racist claims.

MLB just slapped GA. Hard.

Kemp is on tv whining about "cancel culture" after signing a law designed to cancel minority voting.

Any Republicans want to deny that Republicans are racist?

Or are the hoods finally off?

These Trumpers are running out of sports to enjoy. Nascar, football, basketball, baseball, all the true original American sports.

Its all for the better. The loud obnoxious drunken slob that is always at the game or in the sports bar? Most likely a Trumper. Then, poof, gone! Sports will be much better now.

Its almost like fighting racism and bigotry is a benefit to society and improves the American experience.

It's more of a health issue.

Yes, that's circumcision.

What pay wall?

And besides, just open the development tools in your browser (F12), go to settings and check the "Disable JavaScript" box, click refresh and read all the NYT you want.

You should really try using different insults when using different sock puppets.

EXPLAINER: What does Georgia's new GOP election law do?
apnews.com

...The sweeping rewrite of Georgia's election rules represents the first big set of changes since former President Donald Trump's repeated, baseless claims of fraud following his presidential loss to Joe Biden.

Georgia has been at the center of that storm. Trump zeroed in on his loss in the state, even as two Democrats won election to the U.S. Senate in January, flipping control of the chamber to their party. The 98-page measure that was signed into law Thursday by Republican Gov. Brian Kemp makes numerous changes to how elections will be administered, including a new photo ID requirement for voting absentee by mail.

Republican supporters say the law is needed to restore confidence in Georgia's elections. Democrats say it will restrict voting access, especially for voters of color. Here's a look at some of the top issues:...

Danforth, Don't look now? That isn't my claim, that is one of the claims the NYT article and the anti Voter ID lobby makes, that people of color are disproportionally disenfrachised by the new law, because of provisions that are "potentially confusing". How would a provision that is "potentially confusing" cause racial disparity? Unless you are implying that minorities are more easily confused?

Another misleading statement for those who won't bother to read the article. The law will "Give more power to Republican Lawmakers". That is is also debatable and misleading. What they are referring to is provisions that take certain powers away from local officials in the executive branches (some elected, others appointed, some Democrat, some Republican) and transfer it to the oversight of state legislature. We could go around in circles all day anticipating how this might change outcomes, but it by no means a certain advantage for the right. It is more of a "local home rule" vs "centralized state rule" argument, odd because generally the left takes the centrailzed rule side of the argument.

" that people of color are disproportionally disenfrachised by the new law, because of provisions that are "potentially confusing". How would a provision that is "potentially confusing" cause racial disparity?"

Well let's have several centuries of educational denial to folks who look like you, and then let's see if your group might be more "potentially confused" than average.

Willful ignorance is willful.

Which, if the current state legislature gets to decide elections, will always stay in the current hands.

Did you just fall off a turnip truck?

Has there ever been a greater self-retorting retort?

FV just claimed "Give more power to Republican Lawmakers" was misleading, and then explained how the law would give more power to Republican lawmakers.
