Kamala Harris Slammed For Essentially Calling Rural People Tech Illiterate Hicks On Voting ID

It seems like a small thing. Kamala thought she was making a good point, especially when almost no rural whites would be tuning in to BET to see the interview. But, deep down, it shows the contempt Democrats have for rural folks

Harris slammed for saying voter-ID laws wouldn’t work for rural voters

spite houseVice President Kamala Harris was criticized Saturday for suggesting that rural Americans wouldn’t be able to comply with new voter-ID laws because they lack photocopying equipment.

Harris was asked on BET-TV about whether she believes there is room for compromise with Republicans on measures requiring voters to include a copy of identification with their ballots.

“I don’t think that we should underestimate what that could mean, because, in some people’s mind, that means, well, you’re going to have to Xerox or photocopy your ID to send it in to prove that you are who you are,” the Democrat told host Soledad O’Brien in an interview aired Friday night.

“There are a whole lot of people, especially people who live in rural communities, who don’t — there’s no Kinko’s, there’s no Office Max near them,” Harris continued.

Rural people aren’t dumb. Sure, there are some who are, just like in the Democrats big cities. But, a lot of them have college degrees in things like agriculture, which all city dwelling Democrats to actually eat. They know you don’t need a Kinkos (Someone let Kamala know that they have pretty much changed their name to Kinkos/Fedex), and usually no one says the Kinkos part anymore): they can take a photo of their ID, send it to their email, and print it. And, really, most of those folks are patriotic and will drive an hour to vote, knowing that the voting precinct is run by Republicans so it will not be a clusterf**k like Democrat run ones.

Critics blasted Harris on social media over the comments.

“Kamala and her party think rural communities don’t have cars, or shopping, or retail, or internet, or phones, or computers or mailboxes,” conservative commentator Steven L Miller posted on Twitter.

“This reminds me that they made Kamala Harris who has only ever lived in cities an envoy to rural Americans,” freelance journalist Zaid Jilani wrote.

And more

  • ‘I live on top of a mountain on the WV/VA border and I can photocopy my ID. I mean I do it while moonshining White Lightning while dueling banjos play in the background but I can still do it,’ one person tweeted.
  • ‘I grew up in a rural community without an OfficeMax or a Kinkos and I managed to successfully make photocopies of things on many occasions,’ another wrote.
  • Another critic called the claim ‘insulting and untrue’ and added, ‘Bottom line: Kamala, you need to start forgetting all about 2024 before the Democrats do it for you.’

Really, this goes back to Democrats referring to those areas as Flyover country, Jesusland, and Fuckistan. There’s a contempt for rural folks from Democrats, and then they wonder why they don’t vote Democrat.

Harris’ remarks come as Congress fiercely debates a proposal to pass a sweeping Democratic bill on elections, which would create universal mail-in voting and same-day registration in every state, among many other changes.

For their part, Republicans show no sign of willingness to engage with Democrats on the issue.

‘The states created the federal government, and it´s not up to Chuck or Nancy or anyone else in Washington, D.C., to tell Arizona or anyone else how they should conduct an election,’ Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, who was a party in the case, said on Fox News.

Democrats may be “supporting” voter ID now, but, when they’ll spike it when they actually try and pass the bill.

    In rural America 25% still are on dial up
    Do you think they spend much time on the internet ?

  2. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Leader of the Snowflakes, Teach (copying right-wing whining), “pounces”* on VP Harris for pointing out that rural folks might have a hard time copying their IDs, not because they’re stupid, but because they may lack easy access to copiers.

    Naive? Probably. Insulting? Hardly. Worthy of right-wing outrage? Obviously, after all she’s Blackish.

    *Pounce: Another fad word in the right-wing lexicon.

      Heels Up makes perfectly good sense to Rimjob, dipshit that he is, and Johnnie Retard.

      That says something right there.

      Bwaha! Lolgf https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

    You’d think the political left would stop going after the rural bumpkins after the rural bumpkins gave Michael Bloomberg, The Smartest Guy In The Room, a good old fashioned ground pounding when he tried calling farmers dumb during campaign 2020.

  4. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    The puppystrangler is smart enough to send pics of his “3 1/2 inches of fury” to youngsters around the world, but not smart enough to know how far 1000 feet is. LOL.

  5. Kye says:

    Since threatening them with doxing or job loss is a non starter, do you think the DemoNazi’s will drag the Amish and Mennonites from their homes and burn their farms if they refuse to comply with the vaccine Gestapo? Or will a systematic slaughter of their livestock be enough to teach them obedience?

    Why do they hate America so?

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Although the Amish and Mennonites are somewhat cloistered from modern America, viral diseases such as measles and Covid still spread through their communities.

      Conservative christian sects reject the value of Covid vaccinations, and because of the belief some Americans will die unnecessarily.

      Do nuCons really believe that the gov’t will force adult Americans to get vaccinated? And will drag them out of their homes and burn down their houses?

  6. david7134 says:

    I live in a rural area. If you desire to copy something, you go to the nearest Fed Ex, or UPS, or Post Office, or government building. If they can’t figure that out they don’t need to vote or participate in our society.

  7. Hairy says:

    As I pointed out 25% of people living in rural areas still only have dial up service
    David how long do you think it might take to download a document using a telephone modem
    And remember the poverty rate is higher in rural areas than in urban areas still another reason people keep moving into those “democratic run” cities of all sizes

    Heels Up Says It’s ‘Almost Impossible’ For Rural Americans To Photocopy Their ID

    Guess she’s more familiar with kinky than Kinkos.
