Unbelievable! AG Garland Vows to Fight Voter ID Laws.

In a recent spectacle that could only be described as a masterclass in political pandering, Attorney General Merrick Garland took to the stage in Selma, Alabama, alongside Vice President Kamala Harris. The occasion? The 59th anniversary of the Bloody Sunday attacks—a pivotal moment in the civil rights movement. However, instead of honoring this moment with the solemn respect it deserves, Garland saw fit to leverage it for a bit of political theater, aimed squarely at appeasing his base.

Garland’s pledge to combat voter ID laws and other election integrity measures under the guise of fighting “discriminatory, burdensome, and unnecessary” restrictions is nothing short of ludicrous. It’s a narrative that, while it may play well to a certain audience, falls apart under the slightest scrutiny. The Attorney General’s remarks, as reported, paint a picture of a man more interested in scoring political points than in upholding the principles of justice and equality.

The Irony of Discrimination Claims

The claim that requiring an ID to vote is discriminatory is, in itself, a baffling assertion. In a society where identification is a prerequisite for virtually every aspect of daily life—from opening a bank account to purchasing alcohol, from boarding a plane to picking up a prescription—the idea that ensuring the integrity of our electoral process through similar means is somehow oppressive is absurd. It’s a stance that insults the intelligence of the American people, suggesting that obtaining an ID is an insurmountable barrier for certain groups.

This narrative conveniently ignores the fact that polls consistently show a significant majority of Americans, across all demographics, support voter ID laws. It’s a common-sense measure to safeguard our elections, ensuring that every vote cast is legitimate, and every voice is heard on an equal footing. Yet, Garland and his ilk would have us believe that this is a controversial stance, a tool of suppression rather than a bulwark against fraud.

The DOJ’s Dubious Crusade

Garland’s announcement of the Department of Justice’s efforts to double down on fighting these so-called “restrictions” is equally troubling. By doubling the number of lawyers in the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division and challenging state and jurisdictional practices, Garland is signaling a clear intent to weaponize the DOJ against common-sense election integrity measures. It’s a move that reeks of partisanship, using the power of the federal government to bully states into compliance with a decidedly leftist agenda.

The focus on blocking “discriminatory redistricting plans” and other measures that supposedly “dilute the vote of Black voters and other voters of color” further illustrates this point. It’s a narrative that assumes bad faith on the part of those who seek to ensure the fairness and security of our elections, casting them as villains in a morally charged drama. This is not the language of an impartial arbiter of justice; it’s the rhetoric of a political hack, masquerading as a champion of civil rights.

Final Thoughts

The spectacle in Selma, with Garland at the helm, was a clear indication of the current administration’s priorities. Instead of focusing on genuine issues of justice and equality, Garland has chosen to pander to his base, pushing a divisive and misleading narrative about voter ID laws and election integrity. It’s a strategy that may play well in certain circles, but it does a disservice to the American people, undermining trust in our electoral process and sowing division where there should be unity.

Requiring an ID to vote is not discriminatory; it’s a reasonable measure to ensure that every vote counts and counts equally. It’s time to reject the pandering and fear-mongering of figures like Merrick Garland and embrace common-sense solutions that protect the integrity of our elections. Anything less is a betrayal of the principles upon which our nation was founded.

    I believe it! Garland and other democrat officials know that the only persons that voter identification laws discriminate against are those not legally eligible to vote in our elections in the first place. And those same laws hinder people from voting multiple times in the sane election. Garland and the democrat elite are determined to keep their party in power by any means they deem necessary.

    Is it legal to take politics into the tax exempt church? What happened to separation of church and State? I am so grateful to McConnell for not allowing this little corrupt leftist ideolog onto Supreme Court.

    Garland is a scumbag leftist that knows his time is limited and will continue to be a coward in upholding the rule of law. He caters to the Democrats and globalists by weaponizing the DOJ against anyone that doesn’t agree to the left’s narrative of voter IDs discriminate against people of color because it’s oppressive. When asked exactly how requiring I’d to vote is oppressive, their reasoning was that most blacks and others of color don’t have IDs or don’t have access to them. Why is it that only White Democrats are saying this? No black leaders or any other people of colors leaders have made that statement. Basically what they’re saying is that they believe people of color are too ignorant to obtain an id. But they go around accusing Republicans of being racists. They will do anything to lie to the American public to cause division! Come November, the democrat party needs to cease to exist!

    So, can we see those individuals who don’t have ANY identification? You keep bringing up the excuse, NEVER met a person without ID.
