Texas: ‘What Floriduh Said, Y’all’

Guys, it’s almost like the Coup Klux Klan is coordinating another coup:

New GOP-led voting restrictions move forward in Texas

Texas Republicans advanced a slate of proposed new voting restrictions Thursday that would reduce options to cast ballots, limit polling hours and hand more power to partisan poll watchers.

It comes after an elections overhaul was signed into law last week in Georgia, where opponents have already filed lawsuits and are calling for boycotts of corporations that are silent on restrictive voting measures. Critics of the Texas legislation say the efforts particularly target expanded access put into place during last year’s election in Harris County, which is home to more than 2 million voters, controlled by Democrats and a key Texas battleground that includes Houston.

One measure would eliminate drive-thru voting, which more than 127,000 people around Houston used during early voting last year. More than half of those voters were Black, Latino or Asian, said Democratic state Sen. Carol Alvarado.

Gee, I wonder who they are targeting?

“None of what we’ve discussed is voter suppression. And none of what we’ve discussed is Jim Crow,” Republican state Sen. Paul Bettencourt said.

It’s amazing that ol’ Bettencourt didn’t laugh so hard he farted after saying that, or burst into flames. But the person who really should be shamed by all of this is Chief Justice John Roberts for gutting the VRA. All of this was predictable then (and I think most of Lefty Blogtopia pointed this out) and inevitable now.

    The mere fact that he felt compelled to issue denials means that it’s true.

    Sure… Not a word about Jim Crow was uttered, but Jim’s racist yet relatively unknown brother John Crow led the discussion. Just wait till Delta finds out. More more state not to move to…

  3. You would think that the TexASS lege would Luuuurrrrvve them some Drive Through voting, since that juices the Earl Bidness. And seriously what is the justification for banning it? It’s IN PERSON, They have their ID RIGHT THERE, because driving a car generally means a drivers license.

    These people have been so skullfucked by TFG they don’t know whether to shit, shoot or punch themselves in the dick.

    Although the fiscal conservatives are regaining their voice, apparently the small gummit conservatives are lagging behind. Woe to the republicans.

      Ain’t it amazing that the mere election of a Democratic President miraculously restored their power of speech!

  5. I swear that GQL legislature are losing their ever-loving minds.

    A senate panel in AZ just proposed a law that would prohibit businesses in AZ from demanding that customers provide proof of vaccination.

    [Narrator]”These are the SAME Senators that think it’s perfectly OOOOH-TAY! for businesses to refuse to serve customers if they’re gay…”

    Another one (the ever -nutzo Kelly Townsend )thinks it’s a HIPAA violation to have a company ask about your vaccination status. “Checkmate Libturds!”

    [Narrator] “It is NOT a HIPAA violation”

    I am pretty sure Ol’ Johnny Goodboy is incapable of shame. After all, his powers of doublethink have been proven beyond a doubt by his ability to deny that racism is still a concern without dissolving into guffaws. And once you get doublethink down, there is no possibility of self-awareness to the point where one might feel anything as prosaic as shame. Shame is for the little people – Ol’ Johnny Goodboy knows what’s best for you.

    So you sit down and know your place while Ol’ Johnny and his pals call balls and strikes thru this prolonged civil-right-ectomy.

    Well, we should throw KS into the mix. Interestingly, the state senator who purports to represent me has things to say. https://kansasreflector.com/2021/03/29/election-reform-bills-bring-fiery-debate-for-their-impact-on-voters/ . ‘And again, Kansas was not a problem according to what the Secretary of State’s office said, but that is not true for all the rest of the states. We do not want to open ourselves up to have those things come into Kansas.”’ I guess he thinks there are no people of color in the counties he represents (which is absolutely untrue.)

    • And again, Kansas was not a problem according to what the Secretary of State’s office said, but that is not true for all the rest of the states. We do not want to open ourselves up to have those things come into Kansas

      And by “those things” he means “Democrats getting elected”…

        Yep. In other state business, they are busy redistricting Rep. Sharice Davids’s voters into strong Republican areas, intending for her to lose her seat. sigh
