Failed Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams verbally expressed Monday on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” that Republican state lawmakers forwarding voting legislation is a continuation of the January 6 Capitol riot “insurrection.”
Abrams verbally expressed, “We have got to fixate on the fact these laws do things. One, they are anti-voter. “They” are designed to stop voters the Republicans found inconvenient in this last election. Namely, puerile people, people of color, the incapacitated. Number two, these are anti-election worker bills. “They” are designed to get good people to forsake their post. To criminalize those who still want to do their job and to supersede them with those who will undermine the administration of elections. Three, they are designed to subvert democracy. The challenge is, to the extent we have secretaries of state, who support and suborn this deportment, they are hastening the demise of our democracy, and this is not hyperbole. This is precisely what transpires across the world when, you ken, past, long-standing democracies start to erode.”
She perpetuated, “It commences by undermining how people feel not about the democracy that they have but about the administration of that democracy. And what this is intended to do to convince voters that it is not worth the effort, to your point, about being GOP TV. “It’s” to convince those who decided to emerge for the first time. Who, you ken, decided they were going to push through those barriers, once more, that’s not worth it, and it’s endeavoring to convince those who want to believe the immensely colossal lie that there is something in it for them, on the other side. That, if they break down democracy, they get something better on the other side. Unfortunately, we ken that is autocracy. It is not designed for their benefit and not designed for America’s benefit.”
Abrams integrated, “We ken there are a number of U.S. senators who stand to lose their elections in 2022 if we do not bulwark our democracy. But we withal have to recollect that, beyond each individual candidate, it’s about who we are as a people, as a nation, are we disposed to lose our nation to those who had the failed insurrection in January and decided to franchise it to every single state? The insurrection is perpetuating, and we have got to stop it in its tracks.”
