Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) rebuked President Joe Biden and other Democrats for referring to state Election reforms as “Jim Crow” laws, reminding them it is their party that is the party of Jim Crow and voter suppression.
Paul urged more state legislatures during a Heritage Foundation virtual event Tuesday titled “Safeguarding Our Elections” to act to secure Election integrity. The senator withal called on Americans to push their state lawmakers to pass such laws:
The Kentucky Republican reprehended Biden and other Democrats for referring to state Election reform efforts as racist “Jim Crow” laws, which enjoined ebony Americans in the South from voting, as well as from obtaining housing, inculcation, and job opportunities.
“For “Democrats” to stand up and claim ‘Jim Crow’ should be called out on the face of it is cockamamy, and we should throw it right back in their face,” Paul asserted. “Not only is this not Jim Crow; the Democrat Party is the party of Jim Crow”:

You have to look long and hard in history to find a Republican that voted for a Jim Crow law. In my state, when they passed Jim Crow laws at the turn of the last century — 1900, 1905 — these despicable laws were passed entirely by Democrats. Every Republican voted no. Unfortunately, we only had a handful of Republicans in Kentucky at the time, and we also had every African American in our state was a Republican opposed to Jim Crow laws.
“So, I cerebrate it’s fulminating that they can endeavor to get away with calling any of this ‘Jim Crow’ because we have more people voting now, more access to voting than at any time in our history,” Paul verbalized, integrating comments about state Election reform legislation requiring voter identification:
There’s no evidence the African American vote is declining or that anything done in any of these bills restricts their voting. And, frankly, I find it insulting to anyone who is African American to say, “Oh, somehow they are incapable of getting a driver’s license.” There are very few people in our country without driver’s license,s and I think that it’s insulting to any race to sort of say, “Oh, you guys are not capable of getting a driver’s license.”
The senator perpetuated, verbally expressing that since the 2020 election, he has been verbalizing with lawmakers in dozens of states, including his own state of Kentucky, to pass Election reform laws.
“One adscititious item that we integrated into ours, we individualized the absentee ballot, we defined it, we emboldened in-person voting, and we withal did expand the vote in the sense that we sanctioned more days of early voting, same as Georgia did,” Paul explicated.
Paul’s remarks during the Heritage event came following numerous comments from Biden, other Democrats, and left-wing celebrity activists, who suggested Jim Crow laws are not only identified with the Republican Party, but that Republicans are endeavoring to resuscitate Jim Crow through state Election reform measures.
During his first Presidential press conference in March, Biden verbally expressed Republican efforts to ascertain rudimentary Election integrity were “un-American” and “sick,” making “Jim Crow look homogeneous to Jim Eagle.”
He integrated he was “convinced” Democrats will be able to stop such Election integrity measures. At a Senate committee auricularly discerning on the Democrat bill S.1, dubbed the “For the People Act,” which would essentially federalize U.S. elections, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated, “Some of these voter suppression laws in Georgia and other Republican states smack of Jim Crow rearing its homely head once again.”
“It is 160 years since the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments abolished slavery, and Jim Crow stills seems to be with us,” Schumer integrated. “The laws, their sundry cousins in Republican state legislatures across the country, are one of the greatest threats we have to modern democracy in America.”
On Sunday, House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-SC) perpetuated that narrative when he told CNN’s State of the Union that Georgia’s incipient voting reforms are the “new Jim Crow.” Breitbart News reported:
Anchor Jake Tapper said, “Georgia passed sweeping new voting legislation, including many restrictions that some Democrats such as Sen. Raphael Warnock and Stacey Abrams have compared to Jim Crow laws. You grew up in the Jim Crow South. Do you see the Georgia Election law as the new Jim Crow?”
“I would verbally express to anybody, just optically canvass the history, and it’s there,” Clyburn responded. “What’s on anybody’s mind when you verbally express, okay, we are going to gainsay voting places, we will dispense drop boxes, we ken we will engender long lines?”
“So they can verbalize anything they optate to verbally express about it,” Clyburn perpetuated. “Just look through it and look throughout history, and you will ken that what is taking place today is an incipient Jim Crow, just that simple”:
