On Tuesday, failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams repeated her false claims that the 2018 Georgia governor’s election was “stolen” from her while testifying at a US Senate hearing on voting rights. Her main theme is to cry “voter suppression” when there is none. Voter suppression is a term Democrats use when they lose elections. They sow fear, anger, and resentment, specifically in the black community, by making it appear that “other” black people, not they themselves or anyone they know, that an abstract “other” black people were somehow blocked from being allowed to vote and that’s just not true.
This is the same woman who got Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s office to enter into an illegal consent decree to change Georgia election law, something only the state legislature can do according to Article I, Section 4 of the US Constitution, by changing how ballot signature verifications were done. Instead of matching a ballot signature up to the signature of the voter on a driver’s license or the voter’s original voter registration form, Abrams somehow convinced the utterly worthless Raffensberger to allow the ballot signature to be matched up to the voter’s application for a mail-in or absentee ballot. This allowed dead people and people who moved out of state to vote by matching up the forger’s signature. That is the real voter suppression because for every phony ballot that got through thanks to the consent decree agreement, a real person’s vote was canceled out.
Abrams was brought in to testify by Senate Judiciary Committee Democrats as a star witness for their hearing, “Jim Crow 2021: The Latest Assault on the Right to Vote,” which examined the new election integrity law signed into office by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp last month. Democrats, including Abrams and President Joe Biden, have lied from day one about the law accusing Georgia Republicans of reintroducing “Jim Crow,” claiming the Georgia law makes it harder for blacks and other people of color to vote, which when you actually read the bill you find out is a complete fabrication on the part of the Democrats.
During the hearing, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) questioned the lunatic Abrams on whether she still thinks the 2018 governor’s race was stolen from her, something she said to everyone in the universe who was within hearing distance, noting that Abrams still has not conceded the race to Governor Brian Kemp (R).
“It’s been over two years, and you still refuse to concede that you lost the race for governor in Georgia in 2018,” Cruz said. “Yes or no, today, do you still maintain that the 2018 Georgia election was stolen?”
“As I have always said, I acknowledged at the very beginning that Brian Kemp won under the rules in place. What I object to are rules that permitted thousands of Georgia voters to be denied their participation in this election, to have their votes cast out. And so I will continue to disagree with the system until it is fixed,” Abrams said.
But the senator from Texas pressed Abrams to answer his “yes or no” question on whether she still maintains the 2018 election was stolen.
“My full language was that it was stolen from the voters of Georgia. We do not know what they would have done because not every eligible Georgian was able to participate fully in the election,” she argued.
Sen. Ted Cruz gets “Governor” Stacey Abrams to STILL admit the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial election was stolen.

It is insufferable to have to listen to this quack go on about voter suppression as an abstract because she never provides actual evidence to back up her claims. Dead people, people who don’t live in Georgia, and illegal aliens being blocked from voting is not considered voter suppression, only in the mind of a raving lunatic.
Cruz then reminded Abrams that in the past she told the New York Times that her loss “was fully attributable to voter suppression.”
“Ms. Abrams, do you know in Georgia whether the percentage of African American Georgians who are registered to vote and who turned out to vote is it higher or lower than the national average?” he asked.
Abrams granted, “it is higher than the national average because Georgia’s one of the largest states with an African American population.”
Cruz then deflated her nonsense practiced response noting that the percentage of black people registered to vote in Georgia in 2018 was 64.7%, higher than the national average of 60.2%. He said that the percentage of Georgians who voted in 2018 was 56.3%, higher than the national average of 48%.
“Let me ask you this, Ms. Abrams,” Cruz went on. “In 2018, do you know which demographic group in Georgia had the highest registration percentage and the highest turnout percentage?”
“I have a guess but I will defer to you for the answer,” Abrams said.
“The answer is African Americans had the highest registration and the highest turnout, despite your claiming that the election was stolen and that there was somehow voter suppression,” Cruz schooled her.
There was a valid reason for Cruz taking this line of questioning with Stacey Abrams. Abrams is a loud-mouthed rabble-rouser troublemaker who likes to throw out accusations of racism and voter suppression whenever Democrat tactics to cheat in elections are being thwarted. If anyone cheated in the 2020 election, it was the Democrats with the help of Stacey Abrams talking SOS Raffensberger into a consent decree that essentially legalized voter fraud. People who throw out accusations of racism without sufficient evidence are a piece of garbage.
We have learned over the years that if you allow progressive Democrats to spread falsehoods, misinformation, and disinformation after a while it becomes a problem, especially when it doesn’t look like Republicans are fighting back against such baseless accusations. You have to nip the lies in the bud to get the truth out, and it is always difficult because Democrats tell many, many lies and they have an army of mainstream media types who aren’t really journalists such much as activists with a microphone.
