Leftists are working themselves up into a frenzy about the potential for their voter fraud machine being shut down by the Supreme Court in at least one state.
National Public Radio (or National Propaganda Radio, depending on who you ask) reported that the Supreme Court indicated on Tuesday that they’d like to uphold Arizona’s “restrictive voting laws setting the stage for what happens in the coming months and years, as Republican-dominated state legislatures seek to make voting more difficult.”
See, panic. The unbelievable vote that was pushed down Americans’ throats in the 2020 presidential election has become no more palatable as the months drag on, leaving us with less and less liberty if the executive orders are to be believed.
As such, court case after court case is being brought, in an attempt to shore up, and in some cases, repair, the damage that has been done to our rights for a free and fair election. Liberals, however, are unhappy.
“The Voting Rights Act, first passed in 1965, makes it illegal for states to enact laws that result in voting discrimination based on race,” NPR went on. “Eight years ago, the conservative court, by a 5-to-4 vote, gutted one of the two major parts of the law. Now, it is the other major section that is in the conservative court’s crosshairs.
The issue that could come before the Supreme Court hinges on moving ballots from one precinct to another before counting the ballots. It seems natural that those who were given faulty writing materials, and told the race in their state was called even as voters stood in line (therefore nullifying the science of prediction via voter turnout) might seem a bit apprehensive of paper ballots being transferred to one precinct to another before it’s counted, or absentee ballots being collected by anyone other than a family member or confirmed caregiver.
“Justice Elena Kagan, on the liberal side of the court, led off, quizzing Republican lawyer Michael Carvin with a series of hypotheticals that sounded very much like some of the laws proposed by the GOP since the November election, which Trump lost to Democrat Joe Biden.
Suppose, Kagan said, that “a state has long had two weeks of early voting and then the state decides that it’s going to get rid of Sunday voting” during those two weeks, and suppose the evidence is that Black voters cast their ballots on Sunday 10 times more often than white voters. “Is that system equally open?” she asked.
“I think it would be,” replied Republican lawyer Michael Carvin, because “Sunday is the day we traditionally close government offices.”
Kagan was unhappy with that answer, however, and turned her attention to another hypothetical, posited that a state says “we’re going to have Election Day voting only, and it’s going to be from 9 to 5. And there’s plenty of evidence in the record that voters of one race are 10 times more likely to work a job that wouldn’t allow them to vote during that time period. Is that system equally open?”
Carvin said it would seem to be.
Kagan persisted: “What about 9-to-3 or 10-to 4?”
“These are all hypotheticals that have never existed in the real world,” Carvin pointed out, as Kagen attempted to bear down on him, forcing the issue of race into the election question.
Conservative Justice Samuel Alito, however, pointed his tough questions to the other side, asking if the state had a two-week early voting period, then minority groups might claim it should be 60 days.
Alito questioned early voting policy as well and then went to another hypothetical about how a ballot must be filled out.
All in all, liberals are beginning to show their hand, giving Republicans an idea of what really scares them: as it turns out, it’s free and fair elections.
