Former First Lady Michelle Obama and the failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams have teamed up this week to call for legislation that would advance the federal takeover of elections, eliminating voter ID laws.
Abrams’ Fair Fight Action and Obama’s When We All Vote released a video on Thursday that features the two women demanding legislation that would allow for the federal takeover of elections, saying “We’re working to change the future of this nation.”
“Our democracy and our vote — the very foundation of this nation and the most powerful tools we have as citizens are under attack,” Abrams said, with Obama adding, “Right now, dangerous legislation is being proposed across the country that limits the freedom to vote, cast our ballots, and have our votes counted.”
“Many of these proposals would disproportionately impact black, brown, young, and working-class voters, and voters with disabilities,” Abrams continued.
Obama then claimed that those who are pushing for stronger voting measures to ensure the legitimacy of American elections, are “counting on” those who oppose these voting measures to “be quiet.”
“But they must not know who we are,” Abrams said. “Our work is just beginning.”
“This fight isn’t about who’s president or who’s in Congress,” Obama alleged, with Abrams going on to say that the initiative is about “our families, our neighborhoods, our schools, and our communities.” The Georgia Democrat also said that the “fight” is about the “freedom to vote and the ability to make our voices heard.”
Abrams stated that those who want to get involved with her mission can do so by calling on members of Congress every day,” “Checking our voter registration status,” and “Ensuring others in our community are registered.”
“We’re working to change the future of this nation,” Obama said. “It’s not gonna be easy, but nothing this important ever is.”
“Are you in?” Obama and Abrams say at the end of the video.
No, we most certainly are not in with this clear leftwing power-grab. Check out their full video below.
