What Democrats Say When Ted Cruz Asks Whether Voter ID Is Racist

By Kelly - Sep 23, 2021

Voter ID laws are racist in Texas and could be in other states as well, depending on intent, three Democrat witnesses said Wednesday at a Senate hearing.

One Democrat witness said it’s difficult to say whether voter ID requirements have had any harmful effect, but requiring voters to show photo identification isn’t likely to prevent election fraud because fake IDs are easy to obtain.

The hearing convened by the Senate Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee on the Constitution, titled “Restoring the Voting Rights Act: Combating Discriminatory Abuses,” was supposed to look at legislation known as HR 4, which would allow the Justice Department to prohibit implementation of state election laws.

But much of the discussion of HR 4, called the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, focused on voter ID.

Most state election reforms opposed by Democrats have revolved around voter ID, generally by expanding identification requirements to absentee or mail- in ballots. Senate Democrats called three witnesses for the subcommittee hearing, while Republicans had two.

Noting that voter ID laws are popular with voters of all demographics, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, asked each witness, “In your judgment, are voter ID laws racist?”

Franita Tolson, a vice dean at the University of Southern California Gould School of Law, was rather blunt about Cruz’s state.

“It depends. One thing we have to stop doing is treating all voter ID laws as the same,” Tolson said.

Ever just get tired of all the shit that we citizens have to show ID for, and yet the single most important right we citizens have that can turn our country into a third world socialist shithole, we aren’t required to prove we even are a citizen?

I need an ID to buy a firearm, and go through a background check. I need an ID to get a credit card, or open a bank account. I need an ID to buy a cell phone with a major carrier and get a credit check. I need an ID to get utilities put in my name. I need an ID to get water utilities in my name. I need an ID to get a mortgage. I need an ID to buy a car. I need an ID to have insurance. I need an ID to go to a goddamned hospital if I am a citizen and yet… If I say I am an illegal immigrant I can get treated for free, AND VOTE.

This notion that in order to do your civic duty you don’t need an ID to prove you live in the same county let alone country, is just wrong. We had bus loads of the same SOMALIS going to different polling places that voted multiple times for Ilhan Omar. Laura Loomer exposed that and nothing happened.

If you are not a citizen, you have no right to vote. Because if non citizens have the same rights that I do, then what value is there really in being an American Citizen?

I am beyond sick of the Democratic Party and their inherent pathological lying.
