The name Stacey Abrams should ring a bell to most of us. During the 2018 election, she ran unsuccessfully against now-governor Brian Kemp in the Georgia gubernatorial race.
Although she ended up losing in the final analysis, she wasn’t going down without a fight, saying the election results were “tainted” and that she was robbed of her rightful seat as Governor.
Now, with her opponent Brian Kemp having been officially sworn in as Governor, Abrams has to set her sights on something else to stay in the limelight.
Amid rumors that she might seek one of her state’s senatorial seats in the 2020 election, Abrams appeared on PBS’ ‘Firing Line.’ And she certainly caught the attention of the nation with what she had to say!
In discussing the Georgia race, Abrams cited numerous reasons why she believed she failed. Then the subject rolled around to something a little more daring. Interviewer Margaret Hoover asked her about illegals voting in elections.
"What is your view about some municipalities, like San Francisco, who have decided that it’s okay for some non-citizens to vote in local elections?" host Margaret Hoover asked.
While emphasizing the difference between voting in local elections and in state-wide or national elections, she still flouted the Constitution with her response.
"I think there’s a difference between municipal and state and federal," Abrams responded. "Part of municipality — I’m not arguing for it or against it, but I will say, having been deputy city attorney, there’s a very — the granularity of what cities decide is so specific, as to, I think, allow for people to be participants in the process without it somehow undermining our larger democratic ethic that says that you should be a citizen to be a part of the conversation."
Hoover pushed Abrams to give a more specific answer. And, boy, did she!!
"So, in some cases, you would be supportive of non-citizens voting?" Hoover pressed.
"I wouldn’t oppose it," Abrams answered.
But, she didn’t stop there. Oh, no! She wants another group of ineligible members of the public to be able to cast ballots. This time she’s referring to 16-year-olds. Abrams believes they should have a say in who runs their school districts and are old enough to have opinions about what is best for them.
Some would say that by 16, the leftist indoctrination in public schools would have gotten a foothold by then. Abrams must be awfully confident that they would vote for the Dems.
The internet went wild at the suggestion of allowing citizens of other countries to vote in American elections. Talk about "foreign influence!”
"Isn’t that the very definition of 'foreign influence' on our elections? How can that ever be permissible?? Isn’t that the whole schtick from the libs lately? Foreign influence? It’s only good when and if it benefits them? Is that it?"
“Give me logical reasons why Americans should allow citizens of other countries to vote in American elections.”
“It doesn’t matter if it’s federal, state, or local. If you are not a citizen of the country you can not vote. I would imagine every country in the world is that way. Why is this even question?”
“The people who loudly condemn foreign interference in our elections are the same people who would welcome, with open arms, foreign interference in our elections.”
But, this social media user seems to have peeled away all the layers of the onion and gotten to the bottom line:
“LOL, sick #democrats want to make up their own election rules as they go along.”
There's not much more to add to that!!
