It’s now a crime in Georgia to give voters in line food and water

It's now a crime in Georgia to give voters in line food and water 1

 

Republicans in Georgia have passed a sweeping elections bill that voting rights advocates say is a bald-faced attempt at voter suppression.
The new law imposes new voter identification requirements for absentee ballots, empowers state officials to take over local elections boards, limits the use of ballot drop boxes and makes it a crime to approach voters in line to give them food and water.
The law is seen as a win for former President Trump and his allies, who falsely claimed widespread voter fraud during the 2020 election. Trump himself pressured Georgia leaders to overturn Joe Biden's victory in the state.
President Biden has called bills like this "sick" and "un-American." Other Republican-led states are considering similar voter suppression laws, sparking calls for federal legislation to set a national baseline for voting rules.
Advocates said they were alarmed by measures that will allow any Georgian to lodge an unlimited number of challenges to voter registrations and eligibility, saying it could put a target on voters of color.
And Democrats in the Georgia Senate lambasted measures that boot the secretary of state as chair of the state elections board and allow lawmakers to install his replacement, giving lawmakers three of five appointments.
Voting rights groups argue that granting the state new powers over county elections bucks the tradition of local control and could lead to a scenario in which state officials swoop in to prevent a county from certifying its election results.

    Take note people just think of what this party would do if they had won elections ?

    • @William Dozier It would be open authoritarian fascism turning into a murderous regime? You don’t see this as a problem?

    • @Good Vibes it was at least 11000. Thought I said 8000 in my post. I was being conservative

    • @William Dozier You can close your eyes and say “lalalala” or rather “TrumpTrumpTrump” as much as you like – fact is, that Biden has more competence, empathy and decency in his little finger than Trump has ever had in his entire life combined.
      It’s a god sent that this danger democracy and security in your own country and for the entire world is GONE!
      Now it’s time to clean the rest of the disgusting, corrupt magats out of the system

    • Remember the old adage: ’Success is the best revenge.’
      So, no matter the obstacle put in front of you by these repugnant republicans, get out there and VOTE!
      If you have to crawl, slither or walk a hundred miles: VOTE!
      If you have to stand in long, long lines, bring your own water and food, bring a chair, bring a sleeping bag or a damn bed if necessary. Just stay in that line ’til it is your turn and then VOTE!

    • @dan dansen the repugnant republicans have to follow the same rules as the dumpster democrats

  3. Look GA already showed yal fool’s what they could do and yal want to keep playin OK ok
    GEORGIA VOTE THEM ALL OUT 🙏

    • @Cropper Copper no party members can hand out water just the workers can..

      @jeck jeck they will only get worse and worse because at some point, the majority of them decided they either needed to defend, deflect from, lie about or flatly ignore everything there people do or the sky will fall.🤦

      @jeck jeck which generally means they spend a lot of time embarrassing themselves, all for people who don’t give a damn about them.

      @george broff well that’s so didn’t answer that question. What purpose does it serve do not allow people to hand out bottles of water to people waiting in line to vote?

    • @Arzell Rodgers well,
      you just think hard about that, let me know if you figure it out..

  4. It sounds smart until people start bringing their own food and water with them😂😂😂

    • That’s the point, it’s to stop people from being influenced to vote a certain way by having food and water handed out by candidate’s teams.

    • How about not stuffing your face with food for 30 min? How about that? People cant go half an hour with having to eat? Wtf. Seriously, people need to stop eating 24/7.

    • Donato Davis | March 26, 2021 at 1:13 PM | Reply

      @Dan Chick Dan stop it. Many of these people wait up 7 frigging hours in line just to cast a ballot and you know it because there’s many interviews with people talking about it.

    • This is more than that… For example the ID verification in the voting polls can be potentially be abused, where the person who is in charge for ID requirements can target Afrian American by being meticulous to their ID verification in which they can reject, preventing them to vote. Secondly, for people whose ID is not eligible, and try to process a new ID. The state can delay the process, to the point that they won’t receive their new eligible ID just in time to vote!

    Pass out water & food before they get in line. You can’t stop us.

    • OMG you’d think going to vote is like trekking through the Sahara Desert for a friggin month. This is only limiting possible voter influence 150 feet from the polling station. I have never stood in a voting line worrying I was starving or dehydrating even though sometimes it take hours. Adults Black White Purple really do know how to take care of themselves even though the Dems believe Black People cannot. They cannot log into anything on the internet now they cannot even plan to take a bottle of water with them to the Polling Station.

      @Terry Henry People have not been waiting in line for 8 hours until recently, not for 100 years in Georgia, so if they don’t want people giving water bottles they need to find a way to make voting in line less than an hour for EVERYONE. That’S the FAIR rule for EVERYONE

    • @S Userman An eight hour wait is typical. Maybe not in your white Republican rural area, but in the Black Democrat urban area, it very much is and you should be outraged by that.

    • @Kern Albert That only happened because of unusually high turnout. You should be outraged at the historical average of low turnout in those areas previously.

  6. Georgia wake up all this is about the next presidential elections in 2024stay safe and blessed 🙏🙏🙏

      we’re up and we couldn’t care less about a stupid water and food voting law. Anybody crying about this is an inbred idiot with so little conflict and problem in their lives that they feel the need to degrade the intelligence and capability of black people to make themselves feel better

    • @The Real American Patriot! Idk about that. It was his only play. Let’s face it, Stacey is coming for his azz/job!!! She could’ve got any job she wanted in the Biden administration. But she didn’t want a job there bc Kemp cheated her out of that Governor’s mansion. She picked her self up and came back swinging. Turned the state of Georgia BLUE!!! She’s coming and he knows it.

      I don’t think they realize how this is going to backfire on them. Georgia learned they could go blue if people turned out and seeing how the republicans are trying to suppress that is going to make people turn out more. Seeing a black women dragged away by two white cops because she knocked on a door is not a good look for them either.

    • RCU&HYLICSTDCO Thereviewdude | March 26, 2021 at 8:34 PM | Reply

      @Stella Shepherdit’s a food and drink law bro. Calm down. You need to be thinking about how all the establishment democratic party’s lies about stimulus is going to affect turnout. If your going to come at the republicans then levy a substantive criticism at them. These types of attacks are as meaningless and as ineffective calling biden “socialist”

    • @Stella Shepherd You’re 100% correct. It will backfire, and they’re constituents can blame themselves.

      @Muthafucka Jones it is already illegal to appear with attire for any candidate vying for office in polling stations.so your logic is idiotic. But like Republicans telling voters their vote was not going to count, even these will backfire on Republicans.

      tha law is not about water. They made it ill eagle ta give out any liquids cause tha Dems were handin out Colt 45 malt liquor and tradin it fer votes. Thay were getting peeple plastered drunk and connin them ta vote Demokrat. thay would throw in a chicken leg ta eat fer an extra Dem vote. You take a bucket of KFC and thats alot of votes U cood buy.

    • Guaranteed nobody in those Georgia Voting lines are starving. I’d bet 60% are Obese.

    • @Kegan Vlogs Sometimes all the cheaters were Trumpists (in the few individual cases), and on a larger scale it has always been Republikkkans who cheated their way to minority rule

    • @Kegan Vlogs Sometimes no cheating I last election. Multiple lawsuits filed and both evidence found. This is Republicans just being sore Losers and limiting voting.

    “Can’t win fairly? Then cheat!”

    – official republican policy

    • The only proven cheaters are republicans. It’s a historical fact.

    • We need to keep voting to the people to understand the consequence of policy – people who understand economic law – not people who are voting against someone who they think is a racist – without any evidence that he is a racist – or voting for someone they ‘like better’ – these important decisions need to be by people who are educated in this area – unfortunately we needs to restrict voting to accomplish this.
