Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman is a typical liberal elitist who sees minorities as a lesser element unable to compete in society.
The Democrat running for U.S. Senate doesn’t believe that poor people and “people of color” are capable of basic tasks like acquiring an ID, saying that they’re “less likely to have their ID at any one given time.” Fetterman has also denounced voter identification laws as “outrageous,” “illogical,” and “unfair.”
“In my own state, they are going to pass, attempt to pass a constitutional amendment making sure that universal voting ID for every time you vote, not just when you sign up to vote, but every time you vote,” he complained in December 2021. “Because they understand that at any given time, there’s tens of thousands of Pennsylvanians who typically are on the poorer side and are people of color that are less likely to have their ID at any one given time.”
Of course, that’s a racist remark, as Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, pointed out.
“A completely racist comment. Sadly, it’s unsurprising from Democrat John Fetterman— the same guy who pulled a shotgun on an unarmed and innocent black jogger,” Cruz tweeted.

IDs are required for so many basic functions in life today, from driving to banking to flying, with state-issued identification cards available for those who don’t drive.
Fetterman is running against Republican nominee Dr. Mehmet Oz, and bills himself as a “blue collar tough guy” in campaign ads, “a tattooed everyman from a rugged steel town outside Pittsburgh,” as characterized by The Meadville Tribune.
In reality, he grew up in the wealthy suburb of York, Pa. His father is a successful businessman and has financially supported his son and his family for the last 13 years, the entire time the younger Fetterman was mayor of Braddock. The municipal seat, a part-time gig, paid him just $150 a year and he was supported by his parents until the age of 49, according to the New York Post. In 2015 alone, his parents gave him a $54,000 salary.
“He’s a pretend populist,” Oz said in a recent interview on Fox News. “Many folks think it’s because of the way he dresses with his hoodies and his shorts that he’s been working his whole life. It’s quite the opposite.”
Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
Typical of all Democrats, only some aren’t dumb enough to say stupid things out loud, they just discriminate behind the minorities back. https://t.co/kdrHHO04wn

The soft racism on the left is pretty amazing. If I were black I would be very insulted to hear these white saviors going on about how much black people need their help.

Why do black voters continue to vote for people that have such low opinions of them?

Honestly, is there anything in the world more racist than telling black people they can’t produce anything that proves their identity?

What does the colour of their skin have to do with anything why they would have ID or not. It’s so ridiculous I can’t believe anyone takes this nonsense seriously.

I’m a “person of color” and I have my ID 🤷♂️
