ABC’s Donna Brazile: Record Voter Turnout in Georgia is Jim Crow 2.0

News & Politics

ABC’s This Week dedicated their entire episode on Sunday to the upcoming midterm elections where Republicans hope to retake control of Congress and stop Biden’s radical and inflationary agenda. During the “PowerHouse Roundtable” segment, former chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence Marc Short and former Democrat National Committee chair Donna Brazile went at it over whether Georgia’s new voter integrity law which has presided over record voter turnout thus far, is “Jim Crow 2.0.”

“Joe Biden has said the election reforms in Georgia are Jim Crow 2.0. You have record numbers of people voting early in Georgia, record number of African Americans voting early & yet the Democrats are saying it’s Jim Crow 2.0?” Short started off by asking. 

Since Brazile has trouble distinguishing fact from fiction, she insisted that “unfortunately it is Jim Crow.” 

Understandably puzzled about Brazile’s insistence that record voter turnout is “Jim Crow 2.0”, Short asked “how is that?”

Referring to the voter integrity law, Brazile screeched “SB 202 as you well know allowed anyone to challenge the validity of a voter.” Brazile added that “there are many African Americans and others, young people especially who are going out to vote and they’re being challenged.”

She then switched topics and made the bold claim that “Democrats are going to once again surprise the pundits, surprise the status quo, they will do well.” 

Jumping back in, Short reiterated his point and noted how “record numbers of African Americans turned out in Georgia right now, I don’t know how that’s Jim Crow 2.0.”

Short then predicted that “this cycle is going to be a referendum on Joe Biden and it’s why Republicans are going to win.”

MARC SHORT: This is something that even this election cycle Joe Biden has said the election reforms in Georgia are Jim Crow 2.0. You have record numbers of people voting early in Georgia, record number of African Americans voting early & yet the Democrats are saying it’s Jim Crow 2.0? 

DONNA BRAZILE: It is. It is. Unfortunately it is Jim Crow—

SHORT: How is that? 

BRAZILE: It’s Jim Crow! SB 202 as you well know allowed anyone to challenge the validity of a voter. There are many African Americans and others, young people especially who are going out to vote and they’re being challenged. So here’s the level set that we should do in 2022, we know the electoral headwinds have shifted a little bit, maybe shifted toward the issues that Republicans care about—

JON KARL: Crime, inflation, gas prices, the economy. 

BRAZILE: Absolutely, and if you list every one of those issues including immigration, there’s no plan the Republicans are offering, what they’re offering is a basic compact with voters that they just want power. Here’s what I believe, I think that Democrats are going to once again surprise the pundits, surprise the status quo, they will do well, early voting is looking good not just in Arizona but across the country Democrats have ideas they also would challenge these election deniers. 

Over half of the people running on the Republican side are election deniers and not only are they election deniers many of them showed up at the United States Capitol where we saw over 140 people, cops get injured, so this election is a referendum on the future and which party will promise to protect, defend and ensure that every American — defend our democracy and ensure that every American has freedom and prosperity. 

SHORT: Again, record numbers of African Americans turned out in Georgia right now, I don’t know how that’s Jim crow 2.0. I think the election this cycle is going to be a referendum on Joe Biden and it’s why Republicans are going to win.
