KJP tells press that record turnout and voter suppression ‘can be happening at the same time’

Like a one-trick pony, Democrats just can’t let go of their largely contrived racial oppression narrative, especially when it comes to voting — then again, as dependent as the party is on the black vote, it may be understandable that they’ll go to any length to keep these voters on the plantation.

On Tuesday, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked about President Biden likening Georgia’s new voting law to “Jim Crow in the 21st century,” even though turnout in this year’s election has topped 1 million voters overall, smashing midterm records.

Noting that this year’s total is “about 70 percent more than 2018, on par with the presidential election turnout,” a reporter asked, “Was President Biden wrong with his assessment of Georgia’s voting law, or does he stand by that Jim Crow comparison?”

Jean-Pierre responded by suggesting that there can be record turnout AND voter oppression all at the same time.

“The president has been very clear that based on the Big Lie, there have been a host of anti-voter policies forced on states that challenge America’s fundamental right to vote, right? The access to voting,” Biden’s spokesperson stated. “And so this is against our most basic values, including respect for the law and the Constitution. And speaking generally, of course — more broadly — of course, high turnout and voter suppression can take place at the same time. They don’t have to be — one doesn’t have to happen on its own. They could be happening at the same time.”

When asked for the receipts to support the assertion, KJP came up short.

“Is the White House observing instances of voter suppression in Georgia and other states that adopted some of these laws over the last two years?” the reporter asked.

“Look, we have seen, ourselves — I just laid out we’ve seen ourselves from what legislation — state legislations that we have seen across the country that is suppressing the right to vote,” she replied. “And, look, we believe that people should have the fundamental access to voting.”

The press secretary proceeded to throw out references to Selma march and civil rights icon John Lewis, who died in 2020, and claim Biden is “very attuned” to the issue, but had nothing to offer in regard to evidence.

“But, again, I don’t want to get into specifics of what is currently happening in one race. But, again, this is something that we have seen throughout this past couple of years on how voting — the access to voting is being attacked,” she claimed.

It would appear that most folks are on to the ruse at this point — then again, we’ll find out in two weeks when voters go to the polls.

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
