The Ugly Truth: The Republican Party is trying to Outlaw Democracy

“The louder he talked of his honor,” said Emerson, “the faster we counted our spoons.” That’s my reaction to the cacophony of phony piety arising from Republican governors and legislators who are trying to enact more than 250 new state laws to stop Black, Latino, Asian-American, Indigenous, and other non-Caucasian voters from casting ballots. They proclaim that they’re not racists, only crusaders protecting the “sanctity of the vote.” Really? So why are they specifically targeting people of color with their repressive voting restrictions? For example, panicky Republican lawmakers in Georgia tried to outlaw early voting on Sundays. Why? Because it’s a flagrantly racist attack on the Black church.
