  1. They’re Shocked they lost Georgia! those Dixiecrats are really Jim Crowing it now!

  2. How is it possible to make it illegal to take food and/or water to voters in line? This is America? This is beyond insane. F*ing unbelievable

    Come one Georgians. Grow some spines and stand up against this.

    • Remember, this is the party of “small government” making it illegal to give people WATER.

    • @jbulmer I know for myself personally I don’t want people coming up to me while I wait to vote. I’d rather grab my own water at a serving table. I don’t want people asking me things like who I’m voting for.

    • @Chris Davis only the Secretary of State. They have removed him from overseeing the election and now they can put up whoever they want and replace them whenever they want.

    • @Kitty LVoe with some of the lines that you saw in the last election you would need dozens of serving tables. If it is the questions that you are worried about, then make that the penalized part.

    • @Jeb Johnston if they can walk up to all the people in these long lines then they can easily put waters on a serving table and continue to restock it. I don’t want anyone coming up to me when I go to vote.

  3. What could possibly be their reason for not wanting people to have food or water while waiting in line to vote? Jim Crow would be very proud!

    • @random name When did I ever say you were a Republican? My comments were in response to you thinking that what’s going on in SB 202 isn’t the start of more things coming from that party. A party that once boasted that “It was the party for the people”, which you can see they are not. That is, not if they are going to put through bills that suppress voter rights…the people’s rights.

    • @Brian Jones and most were Republican!

    • @Anita Bruton exactly!

    • @Oddfellow 215 Sports And Gaming every time!

    • @Gerald Sutton 😅🤣😂

    States already require voter identification including signed affidavits, signature verification and biographical information. GQP have abandoned Democracy in favor of Authoritarian rule. Do not let the fascists win.

    Sorry Sir, this is American. Amerikkk to be exact. Israel Rise Up ✊🏾

    GOP slowly turns into dictator after losing, I gave you the right title

  7. If you can’t win cheat, said Jim Crow!

  8. look whats happening now | March 26, 2021 at 8:17 AM | Reply

    Illegal to bring food and water? What TF? I think that’s illegal!

    • No water? That one is ridiculous. What are you in for? I gave people in line water. You? Murder. You can bet some Patriot will ignore this foolishness and hand out bottles of water.

    • Lesley Edgley | March 26, 2021 at 3:57 PM | Reply

      @The Blade Everyone should do it. Let them take it to Court and get flattened by a jury!

    This was the final nail in Brian Kemp’s coffin. Just watch. It won’t work.

    • Crooked Clown | March 26, 2021 at 9:51 AM | Reply

      @Ed, you will see that Kemp won’t be re-elected. Voters will be more determined after all of these.

    • @Crooked Clown i’m both hopeful and optimistic that you’re right about this

    • I hope you’re right.

    • @jimchik lawsuits are already challenging the law and the two voting rights bills in Congress would override the law once they are passed.

      Then we just have to get out and keep voting every single election. We have been far too lax with that and look at where it has gotten us.

    • My state of Georgia HAS to vote out Kemp in 2022 along with the Georgia Republican legislature. trump has already endorced someone to run against Kemp so I don’t understand why Kemp is still looking to get back into trump’s good graces.

  10. As an independent voter, I could never agree to the policy of either political parties, but the Republicans are really trying to ensure that I will not vote Republican going forward.

    • @omi god are you that stupid to show ID

    • No water? That one is ridiculous. What are you in for? I gave people in line water. You? Murder. You can bet some Patriot will ignore this foolishness and hand out bottles of water.

    • @omi god I agree with you. I could never vote for Trump. I don’t consider Trump and republicans that support him a political party or movement. Trump is about money. Trump did not pass any legislation of any significant. Trump is a con man that put self interest above the nation. America need to educate the people on government, economics, and history more than the average curriculum.

    • @andrew zgoda thanks, but I have been an independent for 30 years. Republicans had integrity and dignity at one time. The state of the United States is the results of decades of deficit spending, poor political policy, terrible allocation of government funding, overspending, corporations and big businesses corruption, etc. Both political parties are corrupted and need to held accountable and responsible for the political issues of the United States.

    • I agree. The Republicans have allowed the fascists to completely hijack their party. Criminalizing water!?

    If it rains on election day Brian Kemp will have too arrest Mother Nature. 🤣

    The Republicans are essentially acknowledging that the American people are NOT with them.

    • Wow you are to stupid. Why are you against rules

    • You are right. Rather than try to appeal to more voters with their p[policies, they want to rig the system in their favor so they can continue to govern as a minority party. Pretty damned despicable!

    • Jeremy Backup | March 26, 2021 at 12:32 PM | Reply

      @Brian Jones As Trump himself had said in a Fox News interview back in September 2020, ‘If all Americans are able to vote, you will never see a Republican voted into office, ever again’.

    • No water? That one is ridiculous. What are you in for? I gave people in line water. You? Murder. You can bet some Patriot will ignore this foolishness and hand out bottles of water.

  13. Water is life. A law that forbids a man to give another man water is… against life. These laws are the work of Satan in the corrupted minds of the Georgia government.

    • @random name Okay. There you go. I wasn’t understanding because I didn’t get why it was a problem. Now, I get it.

    • @Merc even msnbc agreed with this prior to the election when they were scaring their viewers that armed trumpers would be intimidating people at the election centers. I dont think that actually happened in any way, but such electioneering laws help avoid that scenario… and this portion stops those people from being able to claim theyre “just trying to make sure everyone is hydrated” while they intimidate and scare voters on their way in to vote. Everyone in this thread would agree with this portion in that context, but of course, because msnbc just obfuscated the facts, now everyone is outraged for the opposite reason.

      Even left-wing Slate agreed just recently (im sure their take is different now… until its convenient to reframe it again):

      “It’s useful to recall that the court in Burson upheld a Tennessee law barring electioneering within 100 feet of a polling place, reasoning that the 15 seconds it took to walk that distance should belong to the voter alone, with as little interference as possible. After this campaign season, 15 seconds of peace before we vote seems like the least we deserve.”

    • @random name That is true. Thats crazy.

    • Horacio Dortona | March 26, 2021 at 7:49 PM | Reply

      The Pro-life party just enacted Prohibition on water. But carrying a gun into church is ok.

    • @random name honestly I agree. We shouldn’t be hassling people standing in line at polling places with additional political pressure. Whether that’s giving people who have been waiting 10+hrs water “from candidate XYZ!” or from unofficial “election watchers” looking to scare people. Honestly. The best solution is get rid of the lines all together. Increase number of polling locations. Extend hours of operation. And expand avenues for voting – absentee, mail, drop boxes, etc. Certainly solves many of the issues you identify!!

  14. “Tightens Voting Rules” is an odd way of saying the most racist voter supression efforts since Jim Crow.

    Well I hope the democrats and independents get together to counteract that. Make a get to the polls strategy. On behalf of democracy. And vote those crooks out.

    • the house already passed a pretty impressive and far reaching voter rights bill. next step is the senate — which is why the current conversation about the filibuster is so important right now

    • I think that there are a few lawsuits filed already. Including voter ID requirements alone might threaten the bill in court, but getting the two voting rights bills passed in Congress will be vital now.

  16. The new Jim Crow laws, meet the new boss, same as the old boss.
    Boss Donald J. Crow!

    Agreed with Biden: it’s sick

    • No water? That one is ridiculous. What are you in for? I gave people in line water. You? Murder. You can bet some Patriot will ignore this foolishness and hand out bottles of water.

  18. This will come back to haunt the GOP. They will never be a majority at this rate. This is america for you!

  19. GOP in georgia might as well quit because their time is coming. They all will be out of a job soon.
