How Texas’ New Anti-Voting Law Hinges On Trump’s ‘Big Lie’

Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed into law one of the worst voter suppression measures in the country. The law targets ballot access measures like drive-thru and 24-hour voting, methods that are often used by people of color and in large Democratic strongholds. So far this year, at least 18 states have enacted 30 different laws restricting access to the ballot box.

  1. Besides ruining all those years of peaceful transfer of power in the USA, Trump has hurt and continues to hurt democracy and doesn’t care.

    1. Everybody saw BLM for what it really is, a marxist skid mark on society for the exploitation of black lives, witch they still haven’t helped in inner cities, so keep dreaming on that one

  2. “The president bears responsibility for Wednesday’s attack on Congress by mob rioters,”

    ‘He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding.”

    “Some say the riots were caused by antifa,” There’s absolutely no evidence of that, and conservatives should be the first to say so.”

    “These facts require immediate action from President Trump — accept his share of responsibility, quell the brewing unrest and ensure that President-Elect Biden is able to successfully begin his term.”

    “Let’s be clear, Joe Biden will be sworn in as president of the United States in one week because he won the election.”

    1. “FBI finds no evidence January 6 riot was coordinated.” No charges or investigation into alleged sedition, incitement or insurrection.
      – Washington Post (Aug 19, 2021)

    2. @Bryan didn’t someone you love call that paper and all news sources “fake” and “enemies of the people”?
      Why are you citing them now?

  3. saw an ad : For Hire “Pallbearers for the Unvaccinated” single and family rates. Discount if you have a anti-vaccine podcast. Also Hiring Pallbearers Hundreds needed call………….

  4. America … what in God’s name has happened to you? We miss ‘the old’ you. With warm neighborly hugs – Canada

    1. As a Canadian I am NOT sending warm neighbourly hugs to the US! However, I would like to send free education for all right through college, freedom from religious and right-wing tyranny, healthcare for everyone – not just elected officials – government funded daycare, government supported maternity leave, a decent minimum wage, to name a few. Perhaps, should this all happen and you somehow stop your race toward authoritarianism, I would definitely send you warm neighbourly hugs!

  5. Brother there you go again I command the hold of darkness off you. Yes you brother, the news anchor for @MSNBC.

  6. Stable Genius: worst president in history, failed us on the pandemic, leading to 400,000 dead Americans last year.
    Maga cult: still think the election was stolen because they can’t deal with the fact he lost.

  7. Seems like the U.S. Republican party are continuing their suicide mission to destroy the party. Hey ho here we go.
