The Left is trying to convince African American voters that Republicans are racist and want to return to the era of segregation.
This lie has been perpetuated by many of the leading Democratic candidates for president. Some of them have called for reparations for slavery; others have called President Trump a racist.
Joe Biden Claims GOP Wants to Return to Jim Crow Era
This weekend, “sleepy” or “creepy” Joe Biden (take your pick) tried to stoke the flame of racism when he claimed that Republicans wanted to return to the era of Jim Crow.
Jim Crow was a name given to describe all segregation laws in the South following the Civil War.
Biden said, “You’ve got Jim Crow sneaking back in. You know what happens when you have an equal right to vote? They lose.”
His logic doesn’t make sense. When the Democrats win elections, it’s because African Americans had equal voting rights — but when the Dems lose, they didn’t?
Try figuring that logic out.
Sleepy Joe wasn’t done yet: “Your state motto is, ‘While I breathe, I hope’ … It’s not a joke. We’re breathing, but God, we have got to have hope.”
That’s why we need Joe Biden. He will bring us hope.
He is God’s gift to our country. He will restore decency to our land.
Just like his buddy Obama did.
Our country is more divided today because of the Obama/Biden ticket.
Biden once claimed that Mitt Romney wanted to put black people “back in chains.”
Not the most unifying message.
No one should believe his message of unity. He and his former boss sowed the seed of discord in our political discourse.
The Truth About Voter ID Laws
Currently, 34 states have laws requesting or requiring voters to produce some form of identification at the polls, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.
For example, in Wisconsin, voters are required to present a state-issued driver’s license, state ID, passport, military ID, naturalization papers or tribal ID to vote.
In 2016, a federal court ruled that the law was unconstitutional. However, a month later, an appeals court ruled that the law could be implemented as long as the state agreed to publicize the law and provide free temporary IDs to those in need.
Many Democrats claim that voter ID laws make it difficult for African Americans to vote. They try to equate voter ID laws with poll taxes and literacy tests during the Jim Crow era.
That is an absurd claim. No one is preventing African Americans from obtaining one of these sources of identification to vote. There may be some special circumstances where it may be difficult; however, that is the exception to the rule. An easy solution is to provide free temporary free IDs to those in need, just like the appeals court suggested.
Biden and his fellow Democrats seem to think they have a monopoly on black voters, that the Dems know what is best for them. That is incredibly insulting to African Americans. Biden and the Dems use them every election cycle for their votes, and then ignore them until the next cycle.
Their policies don’t help African Americans, they harm them.
President Trump’s economic policies have helped African Americans more than Barack Obama’s did.
There are more African Americans who are employed, with higher wages, now than at any time during the Obama administrations tenure.
We probably won’t hear Joe Biden acknowledge those statistics; he will continue to spin the economic numbers to the voters.
He will continue to insult their intelligence by claiming Trump and Republicans are racist.
Hopefully they see through his lies.
