Kemp and his fellow Republicans have never cared a single iota for anyone not from their demographic. The shameless Republicans continue to show they are anti-democracy, that they prefer their brand of plutocracy. The R's know US demographics are changing and want to try to establish a political stranglehold fearing they will lose their power. They far right have a powerful media led by extremists like Tucker Carlson pushing messages of fear to their white nationalist base.

If Georgia doesn’t want to lose events, it needs to tamp down its racist tendencies.

The rewrite of Georgia’s election rules — signed by Kemp last month — follows former President Donald Trump’s repeated, baseless claims of fraud after his presidential loss to Biden.

New laws due to baseless accusations. Pretty much sums it up.

Kemp would likely not be governor if it weren’t for voter suppression actions that he’d taken while Secretary of State.

so he has done it to himself. These boycotts are a direct result of the actions he took.

He has no one but himself to blame.

I win = perfect election where the people have spoken.

You win = cheating or voter suppression.

Rinse and repeat

Kemp was going to be elected Governor in the last election no matter what happened. Nothing could change that.

But the next election will see him leaving West Paces Ferry Rd (the Governor's mansion). His time in office has shown the type of human he is. For me, it is at the point where he's become like Trump - and voting for ANYONE else is the only option.

Kemp cares more about business than lives. That's what the last year has taught the people of Georgia. About 17,000 Georgians are dead due to COVID from 860,000+ confirmed cases. That's with nearly 8M tests performed. https://dph.georgia.gov/covid-19-daily-status-report Georgia has about 10M people.

Kemp and his fellow Republicans have never cared a single iota for anyone not from their demographic.

Neither any Democrat that has governed over minority communities in every major city across the US for over 60 years.

The shameless Republicans continue to show they are anti-democracy, that they prefer their brand of plutocracy.

No, Kemp is making it easy to vote, but hard to cheat and the Dems aren’t happy about it, pure and simple.

The R's know US demographics are changing and want to try to establish a political stranglehold fearing they will lose their power.

The Democrats are doing the exact same thing and your point?

They far right have a powerful media led by extremists like Tucker Carlson pushing messages of fear to their white nationalist base.

Well, calling Democrats out doesn’t make one a White Nationalist, but we have learned through the years of you call the Democrats out on anything, it’s because you’re a racist or Nationalist and the black leaders that go on his show denouncing all of the Biden craziness that is slowing destroying the nation are what exactly? See the liberal media is very quiet about using any racial label to give them. Shows again, it’s the msm that’s pushing a racist issue at the very least keep the race issue alive and well.

Last year MLB warned it would take action against racism. True to their word. A Trump replicate.
