Lib journo ridiculed for claiming record turnout in Ga ‘doesn’t mean it’s not harder’ to vote

The liberal media has long had a record of disregarding facts, creating and clinging to a narrative that suits them. So-called journalist Aaron Rupar is no exception.

Responding to Washington Post reporter Amy Gardner, who tweeted about the disconnect between liberal cries of voter suppression and the reality that the Georgia Election Integrity Act of 2021 has promoted record voter turnout, Rupar’s hot take was ridiculed mercilessly on social media.

They are, of course, talking about the same law that wound the left up so tight they spun out of control and demanded that the Major League Baseball All-Star game be pulled from the Atlanta venue last year.

The Post’s story surprisingly had some inconvenient facts that flew in the face of the doomsday predictions that there would be widespread difficulty to cast a ballot in the Peach State.

“But after three weeks of early voting ahead of Tuesday’s primary, record-breaking turnout is undercutting predictions that the Georgia Election Integrity Act of 2021 would lead to a falloff in voting. By Friday, the final day of early in-person voting, more than 700,000 Georgians had cast ballots — three times the number in 2018, and higher even than in 2020, a presidential year,” the newspaper reported.

Regardless of these facts, Rupar tweeted, “Pretty glaring fallacy in this tweet – just because more people are voting doesn’t mean it’s not harder to do.”

Sure Aaron, obviously multiple hundreds of thousands of new voters really must have really struggled to muddle their way through the difficult process to cast an early ballot in Georgia.

People weren’t going to swallow his false narrative pill and their reactions created a firestorm of mocking on social media, as seen here:

But Rupar really is his own worst enemy.

Others offered advice to the man who was obviously grasping at straws to hold on to his belief that voter suppression was real, and was caused by the new voter integrity law.
