Crime is rising and people are dying all throughout the state of Georgia, while @BrianKempGA looks on, behind the gilded gates of the Governor’s mansion and his armed security detail.

I agree with @SenatorTimScott that it is backwards to fight discrimination with different types of discrimination, and it’s wrong to try to use our painful past to dishonestly shut down debates in the present - including election integrity.
When @JoeBiden & @staceyabrams refer to the election integrity bill in GA as "Jim Crow 2.0" they're not only insulting black Americans, they are lying. This law takes common-sense steps to protect the sanctity of every legal vote while expanding access to the ballot box.
The majority of Americans support early voting and voter ID, including African Americans and Hispanics.

Today, I joined 20 other black leaders, including @AlvedaCKing @Bruce_LeVell and @kenblackwell,in signing a joint letter to Chairman Durbin and Ranking Member Grassley to defend the Georgia voting law as proper and honest reform.
"We believe all Americans of goodwill can agree we must do everything possible to both expand access to voting and protect the integrity of our elections in order to ensure that everyone’s vote counts. That is our birthright as Americans."
"To compare today’s policy differences with the literal life and death struggle of previous generations is to diminish those heroes’ struggle, sacrifice, and enormous accomplishments."

.@JavonteA, liberal media & Democrats are the ones suppressing, depressing & intimidating Black voters by writing one sided stories. Y don’t you get comments from Blacks who are non-victim, independent & not controlled by white liberal democrats? @USATODAY…
Ask me or @RepDonaldsPress or @BurgessOwens @DavidJHarrisJr @Joy_Villa @hodgetwins @ThomasSowell @thecjpearson @JackBrewerBSI. Voter suppression & intimidation is coming from @TheDemocrats . Allow me or us a printed response to your story. Let your reader hear both sides?
.@JoeBiden said If you don’t vote for me, you ain’t Black! Then last week he said Blacks are disproportionately affected by Covid because we don’t know how to log on the internet. It’s Jim Crow because you don’t think Blacks can’t afford ID cards? @DNC not @GOP suppress Blacks!

THREAD: @StaceyAbrams' network is paying thousands of dollars to thousands of door knockers in an effort to get @Sen_JoeManchin to support impeachment... what a bizarre thing to do. I guess it really tells us where Abram's bread is buttered. Hint - NOT in Georgia. (1/4)
It gets worse—Abrams is spearheading a similar effort to give health insurance to illegal immigrants instead of helping U.S. citizens in need. It's not wrong to want to help people, but it's wrong to put anyone ahead of the health and safety of Americans. (2/4)
The fact Abrams continues to focus on "getting Trump" and the fact that she is prioritizing the wants and needs of illegals over U.S. citizens is very revealing. She is controlled by the radical left and California liberal elites who don't share our vision for the future. (3/4)

THREAD: I refuse to remain silent. My name is Vernon Jones, I am an outgoing State Representative in Georgia, a lifelong Democrat and the newest member of the Republican Party. (1/9)
Now, let me make one thing clear—I haven’t changed. The Democrat Party has changed. It's become a toxic combination of radical leftists and liberal elites (many in San Francisco and Hollywood) that have taken over my former Party. (2/9)
Grandstanding Democrats and well-paid talking heads on TV don’t seem to understand how many Americans feel left behind and ignored by their "leaders" in Washington. They've hijacked the civil rights movement for money and corrupt political gain. (3/9)
