During the opening segment of her nightly show on Tuesday Fox News host Laura Ingraham called out hypocritical Democrats for claiming that voter ID is somehow racist, while at the same time pushing hard for vaccine passport.
Watch the entire segment where Ingraham really calls out the Dems and their media allies for their hypocrisy:
Read the full transcript, it is very enlightening and really hammers the point home that the Democrats and the media are lying about the Georgia election reform bill:
INGRAHAM: “There’s so much going on, I can’t believe 24 hours have gone by since last time we met. We are going to get right into it. A line in the sand. That’s the focus of tonight’s ‘Angle.’ One of our nation’s most sacred and fundamental rights is the right to vote, and protecting that right is going to require voters to follow reasonable rules when casting their ballots. Right? That makes sense.

That’s exactly what Georgia is doing with the election reforms that Gov. Brian Kemp signed into law last week. After we watched Democrats try to undermine the commonsense voting rules, laws like this are long overdue. But Democrats somehow see this as a threat to their power, so they and their media lackeys are mischaracterizing these measures as, you guessed it, racist.”
HARRISON: “What Georgia has done in this bill is in essence say to a group of folks in Georgia that you don’t matter and you don’t count.”
WARNOCK: “This is Jim Crow redux in new clothes.”
JOHNSON: “It’s almost like a knee on the neck of Georgia voters, just like that officer had his knee on the neck of George Floyd.”
INGRAHAM: “Now, this poisonous rhetoric is meant to vilify and dehumanize the G.O.P. and conservatives as bigots. It’s all done to what? To avoid a conversation about what is actually in Georgia’s new election law. Why? Because then Americans realize that the rules in Georgia are both reasonable and fair. In fact, key provisions of the law are extremely popular. For instance, the law states that you have to show voter I.D. to cast an absentee ballot.
Past polling by Gallup has found that 80% of Americans including 77% of nonwhite voters support voter I.D. And that’s why Democrats would rather talk about Jim Crow than about the real world. Every issue, no matter what, is just a replay of the same nonsense we’ve been seeing from Democrats now for years. How does it work? Okay, step one, get all liberals repeating the same pernicious lies, like this one.”
Biden: “It’s sick. Deciding in some states that you cannot bring water to people standing in line, waiting to vote?”
WARNOCK: “They see legislators deciding that it’s a crime to give people water?”
LEMON: “Imagine arresting someone for handing a bottle of water to an elderly black woman who lived through the last fight for the right to vote.”
INGRAHAM: “Total lies. The law only prevents partisan electioneers from using food and beverages to Sway voters in line. Nonpartisan poll workers, on the other hand, are allowed to provide food and drinks for general use. And then came another whopper from Biden himself.”
Biden: “What I’m worried about is how un-American this whole initiative is. It’s sick. Deciding that you’re going to end voting at 5:00 when working people are just getting off work?”
INGRAHAM: “That is Joe’s bedtime after all, but once again, that is a lie. Now don’t take it from me, take it from ‘The Washington Post’ fact-checker. ‘Not a single expert we consulted who has studied the law understood why Biden made this claim, as this was the section of the law that expanded early voting for many Georgians.’ Huh.
But the left does not care, because they’ve already moved on to amplifying the original lie through their pop-culture and pro sports echo chamber. And of course, just as with the BLM rampages last summer, Wall Street always supports the hard left on these issues. While not explicitly mentioning Georgia, JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon issued this weaselly statement saying, ‘We regularly encourage our employees to exercise their fundamental right to vote and we stand against any effort that may prevent them from being able to do so.’
Yeah, I’m going to take my moral cues from a guy whose firm is cashing in on slave labor in China. Right, Jamie. But even sleazier is this man, Hillary donor Mark Benioff who runs the company Salesforce. His company tweeted that the Georgia law is unnecessarily limiting provisional ballots, limiting trustworthy, safe and equal access to voting. False, false, and yes, false. But consider the source.
They oppose voter I.D. requirements for voting, but are one of the firms actually working on future vaccine passports. That’s medical I.D.s that will in the future give you your freedom back — that’s what they are saying — to travel and attend large events.
So these people are total frauds. And once you scratch the surface, they have zero credibility. The same, as I mentioned earlier, with the woke sports types, especially the woke sports media, with one CNN sports contributor suggesting another way to bully Georgia.
‘We can start by stripping Atlanta of Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game, which is set to take place in the city in July.’ And by the way, the same players who link arms to kneel for The National anthem are apparently also open to this idea.”
