The late great Dr. I’m sure Martin Luther King would be thrilled to know that one day we intend to kneel, reflect on his teachings, and volunteer our time to serve our community. Even the most absurd transgressions are racist.
I should have guessed that a news network that is essentially a 24/7 liberal win-fest would lead the charge.
MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace reports that Dr. Get Jason Johnson to discuss how Republicans are busy crafting evil voter integrity laws…requiring ID to vote.
Dr. Johnson raised the bar so high that my jaw dropped from the argument.

Despite actual evidence to the contrary, outlets like MSNBC and Dr. Pundits like Johnson continue their nonsense largely unchallenged by anyone of real sense and logic. Fortunately for you, dear reader, I’m not too afraid and certainly not afraid to challenge false claims on either side of the aisle.
Dr. The most eyebrow-raising quip from Johnson is this little gem about election integrity laws:
“There is a certain segment of white people in America who would rather make their own lives uncomfortable than risk black people being on an equal footing.”

I’m curious how he doesn’t specifically say which ‘particular section’ of white people he’s referring to; I firmly believe that you have to say what you say and mean what you mean, which is why I will probably never be elected to Congress. Let’s talk about this concept of ‘disadvantage’.
Maybe it comes from my two decades of military service, where you were never allowed to be without positive possession of your military ID. However, I always leave my house with my driver’s license and various forms of identification. Any time I’m outside of my residence, I have my state-issued driver’s license and my military retiree ID card with me.
This is not an inconvenience; It’s second nature. Dr. Johnson continued:
“The intent is to keep black people from voting, but it makes everyone uncomfortable.”
How is it not racist to suggest that a population of Americans based solely on the color of their skin lack the knowledge and ability to apply for a government-issued identification card? And how about the inconvenience of showing your ID to vote?
You must show proper identification to fly a plane, get a tattoo, take medicine, buy beer, buy a lottery ticket, and countless other activities.
Are you telling me that whole swaths of the black community aren’t flying planes, getting tattoos, taking their doctor prescribed medication, buying alcoholic beverages, or testing their luck with MEGA millions?
And what does his argument mean? Do white people find it a terrible inconvenience to show their ID to a poll worker for two seconds? Not only do they find this a disadvantage, but does it mean black people can’t vote because they get terrible kicks out of it?
What’s next, do you have a bridge to sell me in Vietnam?

Racial Electoral Denials
Nicole Wallace tried to make a segment about Republicans who don’t care about voter suppression and only care about election integrity.
In contrast, Dr. Johnson took it to the next logical liberal step:
“I don’t think you can take bias out of that, because really bias is a proxy for racism.”
Dr. No wonder Johnson took it to this level; When leftists don’t like something or find a group of people who disagree with them, their default stated objection is to label it racist. But, the same thing happens when he loses the election.
The Tennessee Democrat candidate for the 7th Congressional District, Odessa King, said after a devastating 20% loss:
“I lost a congressional race to white supremacy, gerrymandering, racist (GOP), secretive racist bluedog Dems and voter suppression, Cus. Rep. Mark Green is no good. So I need a couple of days to process.
Where I come from, we call it sore losers. Dr. Johnson weighed in at intervals before the votes were counted in Georgia, preemptively denying the election results:
“…We cannot say that what will happen tonight will be a fair and just election, because so many laws have been enacted by election deniers to prevent people from expressing themselves.”
It is important to note that this past election saw a record voter turnout in Georgia. I enjoy the irony of someone denying an election in anticipation of an election and blaming…the election deniers. And then somehow won.
Should Georgia get a re-do because it wasn’t a “fair and equal election” that the Democrats won?

For all the left’s talk about limiting misinformation, they sure do peddle much of it with impunity. Regarding the idea that ‘favorable’ voter ID laws are an example of white people wanting to suppress the black vote, Dr. Johnson used Ohio as an example:
“I’m sure anyone who lives in Lorain, Ohio doesn’t like the fact that their ID cards and things don’t work the way they used to.”
According to Ohio state law, acceptable items for identification to vote include:
- Unexpired photo identification
- Military ID Card
- Utility Bill
- Bank Account
- Government review
First, the implication that black people don’t have any of those things is insulting. It assumes that black people, based on the fact that they are black, don’t pay their bills, don’t have bank accounts, and of course don’t have ID.
Dr. John Fetterman of Pennsylvania, then-candidate for senator, is now saying the same thing that Johnson was saying in a somewhat clever way:
“…at any given time tens of thousands of Pennsylvanians are generally on the poor side and people of color who are least likely to have their ID at any given time.”
Is that true? And why is that John? Unfortunately, the left never seems to explain this logic, perhaps because it is, wait for it, racist.
If the voter ID is ethnic then the general ID is ethnic.

What do we need?
Dr. I love how people like Johnson think that just because they have a PhD, they can speak to everyone’s hearts and minds. However, his claim that white people are inconvenienced by voter ID laws more than black people are allowed to vote is absurd and distasteful.
There is no disadvantage in having a valid form of identification with you when you go to vote. Voting in its purest form is going to a venue, proudly and clearly declaring who you are and your eligibility to vote, and choosing who you want to represent you.
Showing some form of identity is something everyone should aspire to and most should do, regardless of socioeconomic status and race. According to a Monmouth University poll, 8 in 10 Americans support voter ID requirements.

Now, I’m no mathematician, but that means a fair portion of those who are up for voter ID requirements don’t have the same skin color as me, and probably range from low to high income. Requiring voters to show their identity before voting is not casteism.
It is racist to say that people cannot get and carry ID cards based solely on the color of their skin.
Courts across the US have gone to great lengths not to say that racism is justified in some circumstances but not others.
Voter ID is racist but not affirmative action.😒
