BREAKING NEWS – New York City, New York – CNN and MSNBC spent much of 2021 labeling Georgia’s Republican-passed Election Integrity Act as the next Jim Crow, but record-breaking turnout in the Peach State has essentially debunked the once-popular liberal narrative.
Democrats and their allies in the media repeatedly argued that the law was a racist effort to deny people the right to vote, especially minority Americans, and could push U.S. democracy off a cliff. But during the second day of early voting in Georgia this year, the state saw a 75.3% increase from the second day during the 2018 midterms and a 3.3% increase over the second day of early voting in the 2020 presidential election, according to the office of Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.
MSNBC’s Joy Reid had her spin on the turnout. “With the record number of black people coming out to vote, it’s obvious what happened,” she began. “Republicans and white people have intimidated black people into voting. We don’t have to vote if we don’t want to, but now we are being bullied into casting a ballot. This is more proof that republicans and white people are capable of saying and doing anything!”
