The Truth About Those 1.5 Million Voters Kemp 'Purged' from GA Election Rolls Is Terrible for Dems

Share

If you followed the Georgia gubernatorial election, you probably know that the Democrats have placed the onus for Stacey Abrams’ loss on the allegation that Brian Kemp, in his role as Georgia secretary of state, deliberately engaged in voter suppression.

In her preposterous non-concession concession speech on Friday, Abrams said that “democracy failed Georgia” and basically implied Kemp was behind it. At issue were several Georgia laws involving “exact match” voter registration and purging non-active voters from the rolls.

Almost anyone involved should have known this. However, if you’ve been on Twitter recently and have some Democrats on your feed, you probably have seen a few tweets like this:

Prominent Twitter user @AG_conservative was sick of seeing these sorts of complaints, so he put together a Twitter thread in which he addressed the accusations.

“If no one else is going to respond to this, I guess I will have to,” @AG_conservative wrote about Berman’s airing of grievances. “This list is intentionally misleading to give readers who don’t know the facts a false impression and thus undermine a legitimate election.”

And you may be surprised to find out who was responsible for that law. Or not.

As for the 53,000 registrations on hold, he pointed to the “exact match” law — something that was often dismissed or glossed over by the media.

As for the lines, well, welcome to Election Day. Of course, that’s something voters could have avoided and it had little to do with Kemp:

The polling places that were closed also had a far less sinister explanation than Democrats are portraying:

Number five had to do with Kemp’s allegations that Democrats hacked into a voter system, made just two days before the election:

In conclusion, @AG_conservative noted that none of this proved that the election was stolen.

Sample response:

Yes, all the evidence and that apparently still doesn’t make it right. The only thing that would have made it right, one guesses, is if Stacey Abrams had won. If not, well, it was definitely voter suppression — and of the racist variety, no less.

Do you think that Brian Kemp won the Georgia gubernatorial election fair and square?

This should be treated as a joke, but the media has been covering Abrams’ allegations as if there was a definite ring of truth behind them. There isn’t. All they have to do is look at the facts. We’ve presented them before, but this is the best adumbration of it that we’ve seen thus far.

The pretense that Gov.-elect Kemp did anything wrong is insulting to our intelligence and to the democratic process. It’s time for Democrats to admit that they lost, that it was a fair election and that their baseless, race-baiting innuendoes have poisoned the process.

Nothing less, at this point, will suffice.
