Hillary Clinton Claims GOP Bills To Protect Election Integrity Represent ‘White Supremacist Authoritarianism’

On Wednesday, twice-failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said that GOP-crafted bills in various states designed to help protect election integrity are a “clear attempt to move away from a pluralistic, multi-racial democracy and toward white supremacist authoritarianism.”

The Hill reported, “Clinton’s comments come amid a widespread effort in GOP-led states — including Georgia, Florida and Arizona —to pass limits on mail-in voting, new voter ID requirements and other restrictions in the wake of the 2020 presidential election.”

Clinton: ‘Concerted Attempt To Destabilize The Democratic Process’

“At least 14 states enacted 22 new laws between Jan. 1 and May 14 of this year that limit voting access, according to the Brennan Center for Justice,” The Hill noted.

Clinton wrote in an op-ed for the left-leaning Democracy Docket, “Each of these proposals disproportionately prevents people of color from casting their ballots, and each is egregious in its own right.”

“Much of the blame for this backsliding rests with the Supreme Court, which, thanks to the election of President Trump, is even more hostile to voting rights today than it was when it gutted a crucial provision of the Voting Rights Act in 2013,” Clinton continued.

She added, “But the problem is more insidious.”

Clinton insisted that election integrity bills represented a “concerted attempt to destabilize the democratic process and delegitimize our multi-racial democracy.”

The former first lady also claimed the laws were “no different from the Jim Crow past.”

Clinton Claims These Laws Are A Result Of ‘The Emboldening Of White Supremacists’

“The emboldening of white supremacists and conspiracy theorists during Trump’s campaign and time in the White House along with the international movement against liberal democracy have exacerbated this perfect storm,” Clinton wrote.

She finished, “When the people make their voices heard in an election, we should respect the results. These aren’t partisan statements; they’re attributes of a functioning democracy.”

The Department of Justice recently sued Georgia, claiming that state’s new election integrity law is a violation of the Voting Rights Act’s protections for minority voters.
