Schumer: State Voting Laws One of ‘Greatest Threats to Modern Democracy in America’

March 24, 2021

In Wednesday’s Senate Rules and Administration Committee hearing on the “For the People Act,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer compared basic election integrity measures such as voter ID to the era of Jim Crow and accused the GOP of attempting to suppress voters.

“Some of these voter suppression laws in Georgia and other Republican states smack of Jim Crow rearing its ugly head once again. It is 160 years since the 13, 14, and 15th amendments abolished slavery, and Jim Crow stills seems to be with us,” Schumer pontificated, before declaring ludicrously that “the laws, their various cousins in Republican state legislatures across the country, are one of the greatest threats we have to modern democracy in America.”

He went on to accuse Republicans of “vicious and often racist actions” such as insisting on voter ID — which in fact, most voters, both black and white, want. But if ID is required to vote, how would Democrats win elections?

The greatest threat we have to modern democracy in America is not state voting laws but the Democrat lust for power by any means necessary — beginning with massive voter fraud.
