Rep. Ilhan Omar On Georgia Voting Law: "We Know That Apartheid Ended In South Africa Because Of Boycotts" | Video | RealClearPolitics

(Full article at above link)

 

 

 JAKE TAPPER: "Stacey Abrams says she understands why people would want to boycott Georgia in protest, but that she thinks such actions hurt the working people who would be working at the Major League Baseball game, for example, and who are disproportionately minorities. Do you agree with Major League Baseball's decision, or do you side with Stacey Abrams when it comes to boycotts of Georgia in general?"

OMAR: "We know that boycotts have allowed for justice to be delivered in many spaces. The civil rights movement was rooted in boycotts. We know that apartheid ended in South Africa because of boycotts. And so our hope is that this boycott will result in changes in the law, because we understand that, when you restrict people's ability to vote, you create a democracy that isn't fully functioning for all of us. And if we are to continue to be a beacon of hope for all democracies around the world, we must stand our ground."

No it is not. Comparing what was passed in Georgia to apartheid or "jim crow" is a disgusting lie. Her and the rest of the democrats propagating such falsehoods know it too.

MLB moved the game to Colorado....even stricter voter laws that Georgia!

 

😁

President Biden's home state of Delaware has NO early voting, much less 17 days as the Georgia law provides.

 

Only 17 days of early voting including a minimum of one Saturday and optional Sundays?

 

Oh the humanity!!!!!! Apartheid! Jim Eagle! Jim Crow on steroids!!!
