‘Misinformation’: Burgess Owens won’t let Stacey Abrams get away with rewriting voter ID position

Power-hungry leftists who want to control the populace by controlling the election are backpedaling on their anti-voter identification stance because, as it turns out, voter integrity laws that include a voter ID requirement are wildly popular with the electorate.

Failed Georgia Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams was chastised on social media by Republican Representative Burgess Owens, R-Utah, over her changing narrative on voter identification laws that she and her cronies have tried to call “Jim Crow 2.0.”

In the video tweeted by Owens, dated June 17, 2021, Abrams stated that “no one has ever objected to” voter ID.

She attempted to explain that it was one of the “fallacies” of Republican talking points that she called “deeply disturbing.” She tried to make people believe that she is in favor of voter identification requirements and that it has been around “since the inception of voting” in our nation.

Rewind not even three months prior, to April 27, 2021, and the video documents Abrams adamantly opposing voter ID laws.

Maybe she didn’t include herself in the tally of people who have never objected to voter ID laws.

She said that people “risk identity theft” when they have to be inconvenienced by forking over their personal documents and argued that free identification is not actually “free” if you factor in the cost of transportation and underlying documents. She urged people to visit stopjimcrow2.com, a website that advocates for a federal power grab of the election system known as the “For the People Act.”

Owens used the video to reveal how deranged the messaging is on the left.

“We’re supposed to believe that Democrats NEVER opposed Voter ID? Never called it Jim Crow 2.0? This is true ‘misinformation’ that the Left seems so concerned about,” he said.

Last month, civil rights attorney and Fox News contributor Leo Terrell accused Abrams of “lying” about her newfound support for voter identification provision.

“Let me be very clear. I want to be very clear and I hope Stacey is listening. She is lying,” Terrell said. “She insulted every black American and any person of color [saying] they couldn’t get an ID. I’ve got tons of IDs on me right now.”

House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) who tweeted last October that voter identification was equivalent to voter suppression has also changed his tune this month. The South Carolina Republican Party took to Twitter this week to call him out for the hypocrisy, pointing out that around 80% of Americans support a requirement to prove your identity to vote.

The Washington Post has even rebuked Clyburn for his seemingly insincere and fluid opinion on voter identification laws and said that he is “playing word games,” and explained that while he says one thing, he fights for another.

The so-called support for voter ID that Clyburn and Abrams have claimed comes after a Rasmussen poll published earlier this year showed that voter ID laws are supported by 75 percent of Americans. Unlike the majority in Congress that is pushing for the ID-free elections, even 60 percent of Democrats in America actually support ID requirements.
