Joe Biden Inflames Racial Tensions, Repeats More Lies at Selma
President Joe Biden, who has lied repeatedly about his civil rights legacy, made extensive racially charged comments, and has overseen a marked increase in racial division in the United States since his days in the Obama White House, gave a speech in Selma, Alabama on Sunday, where he repeated debunked talking points that election integrity laws threaten “voting rights.”
There are no laws in the United States that prevent a U.S. citizen from voting on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual preference, or religion.
But on the 58th anniversary of “Bloody Sunday,” Joe Biden continued to act like the U.S. had made no progress since the 1960s, when Jim Crow laws implemented by Southern Democrats racially discriminated against black Americans with such voter suppression measures as literacy tests and poll taxes.
Non-partisan research on election integrity laws shows that they have no measurable impact on voter registration or turnout. A landmark report by The Heritage Foundation in 2007 found that voter ID laws don’t reduce voter turnout, including among African-Americans and Hispanics. Those voters were just as likely to vote in states requiring photo identification as in those that don’t. Researchers for the National Bureau of Economic Research found that between 2008 and 2016, voter ID laws had “no negative effect on registration or turnout, overall or for any specific group defined by race, gender, age or party affiliation.”
In October 2022, a federal judge ripped Georgia election denier Stacey Abrams for being unable to prove her incendiary voter suppression claims in a court of law. Constitutional attorney Jonathan Turley provided legal commentary on the ruling.
“Remember the law that President Biden called ‘Jim Crow on steroids’? An Obama appointed judge just upheld the law in a challenge brought by a Stacey Abrams affiliated group after finding no constitutional violations,” Turley wrote.
“Judge Jones found that, while ‘the burden on voters is relatively low . . . plaintiffs have not provided direct evidence of a voter who was unable to vote, experienced longer wait times, was confused about voter registration status’,” Turley added.
This is the real assault on America’s elections, as well as the deterioration of voting integrity measures, such as restrictions on mass absentee ballots and litigation against voter ID laws.
