The debate on voter ID laws in the United States remains very much alive.
Democrats have been playing both sides of the field when it comes to voter ID. Numerous Democrat lawmakers and other leaders have gone on record opposing voter ID requirements and calling them racist. Yet, at the same time, some Democrats are coming out as of late and claiming that no one in their party opposes voter ID.
For quite some time, the left has been working to control the narrative about election bills in the country; however, Republicans aren’t letting them get away with this.
Just recently, the Republican Party put out an ad in Texas discussing the facts and reality of voter ID in America.
The reality of voter ID in the United States
In the ad for Austin, Texas, Republican National Committee official Melvin Everson didn’t mince words. Everson noted that picture ID is used by him — and other Americans — for many purposes in America. A few examples include boarding aircraft and attending sports games.
Later, Everson denounced the debunked and racist notion that black people somehow cannot obtain IDs. The RNC official stated that the real reason Democrats oppose voter ID laws is because they stop cheating in elections. Everson ultimately conveyed the message that conservatives won’t back down from upholding voter ID laws and otherwise maintaining election security.
False accusations of racism from Democrats
The political left would very much love to dominate the narrative surrounding voter ID and other election rules in the nation. President Biden and others continue to perpetuate the false narrative that any attempt to uphold election integrity is rooted in racism.
However, the Austin, Texas ad from the GOP sends a very clear message. It shows that Republicans will not stand for bullying; it furthermore speaks truth to power about the reality of voter ID and other election laws here in America.
There’s an element of irony to Democrats’ opposition against voter ID, though. Many of the same folks opposing voter ID have no issue with mandatory vaccine passports. This is an irony that many conservatives throughout the nation have drawn attention to.
