When was the final time an extremely alpha male MAGA voter was intimidated into voting for Hillary or Bernie? ‘Laborious to inform as a result of even theoretical physicists have a tricky time pinpointing when one thing by no means occurred. And but Matt Gaetz, being the ahead thinker that he’s, believes it might be prudent to cross a regulation permitting each [white] American to arm themselves whereas standing in line to vote. Nobody would intimate somebody defending their vote with a Glock.
Based on The Hill:
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) on Thursday stated he helps voters arming themselves when headed to the polls in an effort to guard towards intimidation.
“I form of like [Kentucky Republican Rep. Thomas] Massie’s laws that possibly everybody who’s a voter or on their strategy to vote must have the chance to hold a firearm to make sure that they don’t seem to be topic to any intimidation,” Gaetz stated.
Welcome to MAGA America. It was once that Congress, being the August physique that it was, would maintain hearings, and name consultants and the general public to testify as to why Congress ought to change the regulation or enact new laws, utilizing examples, knowledge, graphs, proof, all that. Good instances.
That is the unerious MAGA America the place a person like Gaetz is virtually winking with a sly smile as he talks about arming People to “stop” intimidation, envisioning AR-15 carrying MAGAs who’re at a polling station to “vote” (they’ve already voted), staring down black and brown households trying to vote: “You will need to show you are a citizen…” says simply one other citizen. Based on The Hill, this can be a very urgent drawback:
Roughly a dozen states prohibit weapons from being carried at polling websites, together with California, Arizona, Florida, and Georgia. However, 5 key swing states — Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin — haven’t enacted bans on firearms at polling locations.
One can see how a well-placed, well-armed, not well-regulated, MAGA standing at sure polling locations in Atlanta or Phoenix, “ready in line to vote” (however by no means getting round to voting) and the way that Maga-man is likely to be fairly a presence merely asking different voters about whether or not they need to even be there.
Thank god that President Biden has forty years of expertise serving to him see this coming and can trash that concept sooner than Gaetz can Venmo one other $350.00 to a “date.”
