Cher: GOP Doesn’t Understand Why 'Black and Brown Americans' Are Allowed to Vote
Hollywood star says Republicans only allow white people to vote,
Liberal Hollywood star Cher falsely claimed Republicans only allow white people to vote, saying the GOP can't understand why “black, brown, and native Americans” are allowed to vote in elections.
But the modern Republican party has never limited voting rights to only white people.
Like most of Cher's bizarre unhinged rants on Twitter, it's not backed with evidence, so it's anyone guesses how she arrived at her conclusion.
It does appear she was referring to GOP-led voter integrity laws in states like Arizona, Idaho, and Georgia.
Florida’s legislature passed a comprehensive election integrity bill that Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) has stated he will sign into law.
The laws are designed to tackle voter fraud by implementing more comprehensive voter identification requirements.
But celebrities, the establishment media, and Demcorats claim the laws are "racist" and a form of “voter suppression."
Ironically, their claims suggest black people don’t know how to obtain government-issued identification, which is racist in itself.
Cher also forgot to mention that Democrats have a history of opposing civil rights for black people.
Democrats in Congress opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which outlawed discrimination based on race, color, religion, and sex.
The late Sen. Robert Byrd, a Ku Klux Klan member, filibustered the bill in an attempt to defeat it.
But he did not succeed thanks to the republican Minority Leader Everett Dirksen (R-IL), who rallied Senate Republicans for a cloture vote to stop the Democrat-led filibuster.
Cher's comments come on the heels of the viral "Uncle Tim" slur, which began trending on Twitter Wednesday about Senator Tim Scott, a black man, as he gave his rebuttal speech for the Republican Party on Wednesday.
Scott was compared to the racist "Uncle Tom" trope that depicts black people as subservient after defending America as not racist.
While making the point that he had personally experienced discrimination, Scott spoke extensively about race and concluded that he does not believe the United States was an inherently racist country.
