The ongoing shitshow that is perpetual frat boy James O’Keefe continues to emit staggering amounts of idiocy. His latest undercover video, in which he dresses up as a hunter (I guess the pimp outfit was at the cleaners), has him asking a Republican congressman about an amendment he sponsored to the Voting Rights Act that “excludes white people.”
It all involves the Supreme Court overturning part of the Voting Rights Act that required preclearance from the DOJ for changes to voting rights laws that have a negative effect on minority voters in those states with a long history of racist voter suppression. The latest authorization of that law passed nearly unanimously in both houses of Congress, but in the bizarre world O’Keefe inhabits, protecting minorities automatically means “excluding whites.” Of course, if he could find just a single example of any state that has ever passed a law to make it more difficult for white people to vote, he might have an argument. But he can’t and he doesn’t.
