From the debacle called the 2020 election onwards, Republicans have made strides when it comes to securing the voting process.
The Republicans are giving their best to protect our voice, but the Dems attack this right by claiming that they are suppressing people from being able to vote.
In an attempt to make the public believe that this right is being infringed on, the left called on none other than 2016 Presidential candidate and former Secretary of State – Hillary Rodham Clinton!
She immediately came out swinging as she claimed the shift in voting rights was a step “toward white supremacist authoritarianism.”
In the Democracy Docket, Clinton wrote:
“Since the 2020 election with its historic turnout, lawmakers across the country have introduced nearly 400 bills making it harder to vote: purging voters from the rolls, making it more difficult to register, cutting back on early and absentee voting, getting rid of ballot drop boxes, even banning giving out food or water to people waiting in line at the polls.”
We are witnessing a concerted attempt to destabilize the democratic process and delegitimize our multi-racial democracy, and we need to fundamentally change the way we fight back against attacks on voting rights.

Numerous of her points have been debunked, but she kept on spinning the narrative that it is all the fault of Republicans:
“We need to remain laser-focused on what’s at stake for democracy and people’s lives and refuse to allow Republicans to draw us into piecemeal fights over tactics and technicalities. Voters should have the ability – not just in principle, but in practice – to hold elected officials accountable in the voting booth. We should be doing everything we can to make it easier for eligible voters to cast their ballots.”
As you have probably guessed from the very beginning, Dems used the same old strategy and mentioned the January 6th riot on Capitol Hill.
Clinton is no exception, so she went on:
“After the insurrection, I wrote about the failure of imagination that hindered our ability to prevent the violence in Washington. I quoted historian Taylor Branch, who asked in Isabel Wilkerson’s ‘Caste: ‘If people were given the choice between democracy and whiteness, how many would choose whiteness? The months that followed revealed the ugly truth of just how many elected officials in America would choose whiteness.”
