On Fox Across America with Jimmy Failla, Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) discussed how the left isn’t telling the truth about the voter laws in Georgia and how Major League Baseball doesn’t care about what’s really happening in the state when it comes to voting laws.
“It’s a travesty, frankly. The mere fact that we’re in this position where we are having to essentially lay a new foundation about what are sane voting laws and actually having to educate media and Democrats that the voting laws in New Jersey and in Delaware are far more restrictive than what Georgia just passed. When it comes to reality, Major League Baseball doesn’t care about that. Major League Baseball, what they’re doing is, they just don’t want to get targeted by the local left. And so they’re just going to go along with the talking points that it’s Jim Crow and it’s racist when nothing could be further from the truth.”
“It bothers the hell out of me. And what’s worse is they never showed data about how, somehow, black people don’t have access to I.D. or it just disproportionately affects them because they simply can’t get it. They just say it. They throw it out there. There’s never any facts or data behind it. That’s just what they use. And I find it, frankly, it’s disrespectful. It’s literally the soft bigotry of low expectations. Because what you’re saying is, is that a black kid can’t get an ID. Well, at one point I was a black kid, we grew up poor. I was 12 years old. I had an ID card. There’s a lot of my friends, we all had ID cards. We weren’t rich kids. We weren’t privileged kids. But we had one because it was important for our parents that we had ID. So if something happened, people knew who we were and that’s just what it is. And so what you find is there’s a lot of young kids out there who come from poor areas, I’m not even going to call them black kids, just poor kids. They get IDs. This happens all the time. And so for the left to use this as somehow having an ID is somehow hindering your right to vote is outrageous to me. It pisses me off. I hate seeing it. But unfortunately, they just keep going back to that same talking point, thinking that it works and it resonates, but I think that’s changing.”
