Video surfaces of Stacey Abrams plotting redistricting to keep white lawmakers from getting elected April 27, 2020 | Robert Jonathan
Newly unearthed comments by potential Joe Biden VP pick Stacey Abrams suggests that she was playing the race card during a conference about legislative redistricting set for 2021.
In the 2014 video, Democrat Abrams warned that the south is in danger, as she sees it, of falling victim to a governing coalition made up of primarily white people.
Earlier this month, Abrams described herself in an interview with Elle magazine as an “excellent running mate” for Sleepy Joe.
Viewing everything through a racial lens, Abrams made these remarks in a clip unearthed by Patrick Howley of the National File:
“My eye is on 2021. Because when we do redistricting in 2021, if we have not changed the electorate, especially in the South, we will have a majority-minority population that is governed by a minority white conservative coalition. And that’s the most dangerous precedent that we can possibly set for the South in the next 20 years.”
So-called progressives assume that ethnic groups in America vote in a monolithic manner, which is increasingly inaccurate, particularly given the ascendancy of Donald Trump.
According to Howley, the GOP needs to wake up because “This clip proves once and for all that Democrat demographic politics are in motion…The left is weaponizing race for cynical electoral gain.”
