Georgia Democrat arrested while protesting new state election law

Republicans are trying to ensure fair and secure elections, but Democrats don’t want it. One lawmaker went so far to stop a voter security bill that she was arrested.

Democratic Georgia state Rep. Park Cannon was apprehended in the state capitol building Thursday for attempting to disrupt a General Assembly session, according to the Post Millenial. Gov. Brian Kemp was signing a bill to ensure voter security when Cannon knocked on his door to disrupt his livestream proceedings.

“I am not the first Georgian to be arrested for fighting voter suppression. I’d love to say I’m the last, but we know that isn’t true,” Cannon tweeted. “But someday soon that last person will step out of jail for the last time and breathe a first breath knowing that no one will be jailed again for fighting for the right to vote.”

She was taken to Fulton County Jail and charged with “preventing or disrupting General Assembly sessions or other meetings of members” as well as obstruction of law enforcement, according to The Hill. Cannon was released shortly after midnight Friday morning.

The bill that Cannon was against is the S.B. 202. The law simply enacts commonsense changes to the voter system like ID requirements for absentee ballots, safeguards and limited drop boxes for early voting, as well as restrictions on passing out food while voters wait in line to discourage incentivizing voters.

Cannon and others have called this voter suppression and are predictably hurling accusations of white supremacy. In a follow-up tweet to her release announcement, Cannon went on to link the bill’s signing with white supremacy and another tragedy.

“The closed-door signing of #SB202 and the senseless murder of #AAPI Georgians are both products of a white supremacist system,” she said, lumping in the Atlanta spa shooting that killed eight, six of whom were Asian although the shooter said racism was not a motive. “Different tactics, same goal: fear and control.”

There is no evidence the measures in the bill are race-based or would even have an impact on voter turnout except for those that would be fraudulent anyway. However, the left has one note, and that’s the new claim of white supremacy for everyone who disagrees with them. As long as the left can paint their opponents with this ugly charge, they will never have to debate in the arena ideas — and they know they would lose if were a fair fight over policy without the name-calling.

Just a simple Google search shows 84.1% of Americans have a driver’s license. What’s wrong with flashing it at the polls?

You have to show your identification to buy a pack of cigarettes or to buy booze and when you fly!! Airports DEMAND IDENTIFICATION!! Your saying that having to present IDENTIFICATION to cast your vote for the people we are voting for to represent us ISN”T REQUIRED?? I really disagree with you on this! It has NOTHING to do with WHITE SUPREMACY! It has to do with PROVING you ARE THE PERSON CASTING THAT VOTE, THAT YOU ARE REGISTERED TO VOTE!! I see NOTHING wrong or it doesn’t STOP anyone from voting! It just MAKES VOTING LEGAL, and the CHANCES of VOTER’S FRAUD LESS POSSIBLE! Especially if those who INSIST they are incapable of going to the polls and want to MAIL IN their Votes that THEY ARE WHO THEY SAY THEY ARE!! That is ONLY common sense……..Otherwise we will have a repeat of the 20/20 elections with voter fraud up the ying yang!!

Most states have reduced rates for welfare and food stamp recipients. Basically the demonazis are saying the poor and minorities are too stupid to get an ID. Or they want fraudulent voters to vote.

Listen, the fraud that took place in 2020 was in the works for 4 years. I truly believe that some in the D.C swamp worked with China on the virus. How convenient that it came out during an election year so that mail in voting could happen and that is the number one ingredient for fraud. If this virus was as bad as they have been telling us why then have we seen so many Politicians braking their own rules? They have inflated the numbers greatly. It ALL OF US really knew the truth there would, without a doubt, an uprising.

I agree. If there was anything there it would have come out years ago. Trump has been investigated extensivily . If there had been one iota of anything there, they would have used it After all, they accused him and charged him for over four years doing it illegally on every front. Nothing found they could charge him with. Still they try. You would think they would give up by now. They hate that man so greatly, they can’t enjoy their own lives for the hatred. They are disgusting.

There was a PhD paper written by an individual in Chicago that showed most big cities (70+%) don’t have a regular procedure to remove deceased voters from the election rolls. He found that more than 10% of the total votes cast over a number of elections were from dead people……some dead folks voted two or three times !!!!

The leftist Democrats claim that voter ID is racist because black people are not sophisticated enough to register to vote. That claim itself is racism 101.
If it were true, then drivers licenses should be eliminated altogether because by their own reasoning, drivers licenses are racist.

I have noticed most of those charging racism are for the most part, white. Why is that? During those riots last year in Kenosha, Wisc., Portland, Seattle, etc. the BLM and Antifa folks were mostly white people. They were never censored for rioting, burning buildings, businesses, and all the killings. In Chicago every weekend, nearly 100 blacks are killed by blacks, and all that the media never reports on it, Kamala Harris took up donations to bail the rioters and killers out of jail, with no charges. How many young black children’s lives were killed by gunfire by blacks, and nothing was done about it. Why? Were they expendable? They had their whole lives snuffed out but media never reported a word about them. Some were babies in strollers. An 8 yr old black girl playing in her grandmothers front yard. A young boy sitting in his mother’s car.

Katydid, I get censored all the time. No profanity, no racism, just when someone says or does something really stupid, I point it out, and POOF, it goes down the memory hole. I immediately write another post pointing out how I have been censored, and it gets posted. Go figure. There’s no sense to it that I can determine, it sometimes seems completely random, but it’s really annoying. And it always seems to happen when the post I’m commenting on leans Democrat. Maybe that says it all. And you’re right, other posts have profanity, name calling, and can be really nasty, and get posted. If it really is a blacklist, why do some posts go up and others don’t? It’s inconsistent, but it’s real. Maybe it’s just that the people running the internet are really that stupid. Just know you’re not the only one, there are a lot of us.

Mississippi and Texas both have opened everything back up. Did away with the Mandates about masking and social distancing. Deaths and cases are both dropping, after this happened. Why can’t these other states look at this and do the same?

I saw on another site where people were upset that food or water could not be given to voters in lines. They said the long lines and heat made it hard on voters and this was voter suppression. Sounds to me like they just want free water and food. I understand why they don’t want to hand out this stuff because people will be swayed to vote for more free things. If you are an ADULT and are going to vote and you know it may be hot and there may be long lines take some water with you.

I am constantly reading/hearing that white people are racist and more, how come anyone can make statements like that and they are not sued or jailed etc. Even the Congressmen and President Biden and Pelosi) insult the whole white race many times. I am a WHITE woman of 84years and I have NEVER insulted or even THOUGHT of
doing anything so unjust. Unlike the people accusing the white race we are NOT idiots. We give black, Asian, Indians and ALL people credit for being intelligent decent people who need to be proud of their race. It is the ones who ARE RACSIST that spread these lies. THINK FOR YOURSELF and really check out the trouble makers. People can disagree about a lot of things food ,jobs ,sports and even your friends choice of other friends. The point is CHARACTER. Their honesty, their support by listening to truthful friends. Being a person who stands up for fairness ,not jumping to this believe that someone is RACIST just because another person tells you someone
another person is a RACSIT . I have good friends of many races and from other countries. I thank God for each one of them as so many people do. Be proud of who you are ,just be a decent kind human being. SPREAD THE TRUTH,NOT THE LIES!
