Watch: Dems Go Berserk When First Black NC Lt Gov Tells Them It’s ‘Insulting’ to Say Black People Can’t Get Free ID to Vote

North Carolina’s first black lieutenant governor ripped into House Democrats this week for their continued efforts to malign voter ID measures as racist.

Democrats compared the requirement for absentee voters to possess a free, valid ID to the horrors of murder and racial suppression in the Jim Crow era, and have called Georgia’s new voting law an act of “white supremacy.”

The Election Integrity Act of 2021 requires Georgia voters who wish to use absentee ballots to document the same ID information all in-person voters are already required to have. It has been so demonized by Democrats that the House Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties held a hearing this week on the issue of voter discrimination.

During that hearing, Republican North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson delivered a scathing testimony accusing Democrats of using racism in their pursuit of pure power politics.

“Am I to believe that black Americans, who have overcome the atrocities of slavery, who were victorious in the civil rights movement and now sit in the highest levels of this government, cannot figure out how to get a free ID to secure their votes?” Robinson said.

“That they need to be coddled by politicians because they don’t think we can figure out how to make our voices heard. Are you kidding me? The notion that black people must be protected from a free ID to secure their vote is not just insane, it is insulting.”
