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.
Voting is surging in Georgia’s upcoming primary, undercutting Democratic claims that a new election law would make it harder to cast a ballot, my latest from the Peach State, with @mrbrownsir https://t.co/wP44HUSWNo

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:
you meant glaring fallacy in your own tweet right https://t.co/pUMLdCgmSc

So what does it mean then? More people voting suggests that it’s somehow harder to do? How the hell does turnout increase then? https://t.co/fMCQJA5wBQ

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.
“Just because the thing I said would happen didn’t happen doesn’t mean that the thing I said would happen isn’t happening.”
I value loyalty, Aaron, rest assured, but your loyalty to this line of rhetoric will only yield diminishing returns.
I suggest you find a new angle. https://t.co/BnMIe3XBme
