After the Georgia indictment, it is now time to acknowledge the silent majority of voters in the United States, all 81,282,916 of them, who have served any semblance of justice after Trump’s alleged crime syndicate tried to steal and destroy their votes. Legitimately and calmly waited for. country because they didn’t like the election results.

These are Biden voters. They don’t get articles from diners or spend long hours thinking about how awful they are behaving because of their anxiety. They deserve recognition for their fortitude, their legality, their steadfastness against grave injustice and wrongdoing against their sacred right to vote.

Biden Voters in predominantly black cities have been publicly and relentlessly harassed, lied to, intimidated and discredited for years by Trump’s alleged crime enterprise in an effort to steal the election. He didn’t respond in kind.

Biden voters saw their own representatives in some swing states actively work to disenfranchise them. He did not respond to violence.

Biden voters witnessed a mob trying to take away the election from him at the US Capitol. He didn’t respond in kind.

Biden voters watched as several Republican witnesses came forward to testify that Trump and his alleged criminal enterprise tried to steal the election, knew they were going to lose and incited an armed mob at the Capitol. Nevertheless, he waited patiently for the law to take its course.

In the 2020 election, Joe Biden got 51.3% and Donald Trump got 46.9% votes. There was no way Donald Trump would win that election. Nor were he and his alleged criminal enterprise able to prove any of his claims about widespread election fraud. Trump’s own chosen Attorney General William Barr called his claims baseless at that time. The DOJ did not uncover evidence of widespread voter fraud.

Still, Biden voters watched as the Trump team continued to try to subvert the election, using the president at every turn to seize a lost election, undermine democracy, and steal citizens’ most sacred right to vote. Made the power of position a weapon. Cast your vote braving great odds during the pandemic.

Without any sign of justice, they mobilized and organized to appear once again in the 2022 midterms, showing deep faith in a system that historically has not been their friend.

Until 1870, only white males were allowed to vote in the United States. Minorities and women fought very hard for the right to vote, which included dying for it. Yet, they remained peaceful as these criminal thugs tried to steal their votes.

First, in 1870 the Fifteenth Amendment gave all men the right to vote on paper, but in reality, many black Americans were still denied the right to vote by a variety of methods, including poll taxes, literacy tests, and intimidation, which I can still attest. The 2008 election was taking place in Georgia. In the 1960s, Americans gave their lives for black people to have the right to vote. The poll tax was finally banned in federal elections, and then, after a long valiant effort by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., John Lewis, Diane Nash, Ella Baker, and others, we finally got federal protection of voting rights . Act of 1965. That wasn’t even 60 years ago.

There is a racial disease in this country that is as clear and ugly today as it was in the 1960s when we first kidnapped and enslaved African Americans. How can it be overlooked that the Trump criminal enterprise targeted *these voters* and lied about them so much that their mob at Detroit’s vote-counting facility was forced to “Stop the Counting!” were instigated to raise slogans.

was one of the racists They were intimidating poll workers by wearing scary masks, “An election observer reported that the man also referred to slavery, using racist language. He was wearing a ‘scary mask’ similar to the ones worn by the villains in the movies ‘Halloween’ and ‘Friday the 13th’, which did not cover his mouth properly.

If it’s not clear yet, Republicans stepped up that attack asking a judge to throw out the ballots of thousands of Detroit voters, without any proof of reason.

I’ve been writing about the racism in these attacks since they began. But it seems that many people in the media have just become aware of this fact, which is discouraging and, again, shows a bias towards stories from non-Trump voters. I am writing this not in condemnation, but as always, in the hope of drawing attention to those quiet patriots whose rights have been repeatedly and relentlessly attacked.

For decades, women resisted being given the right to vote. Finally, on August 18, 1920, the 19th Amendment was ratified and women were given the right to vote. In their fight for this most valuable right, suffragettes were jailed and sometimes mistreated. And yet, not all women had the right to vote. It took decades more work to give black women and other minority women the right to vote.

And then, who are the people most targeted by the Trump crime enterprise? black voters. black voters in Georgia and black women election activists such as Shay Moss and Lady Ruby Freeman, whose testimony was a must-see for the 1/6 committee, As she asked, “Do you know how it feels to be targeted by the President of the United States of America?”

Donald Trump and his criminal enterprise deliberately targeted these voters and election workers with falsehoods. Now criminally indicted in Trump conspiracy, Rudy Giuliani finally admitted it in court In July.

Did Democratic voters flock to the Capitol when Donald Trump barely won with the help of a hostile foreign power? No, they protested legally, they organized, they exercised their sacred right to vote to make their voices heard.

And yet they are ignored. His stories are dismissed. The trampling of their rights is almost expected and they are expected to get away with it. Some media commentators have condemned him for being resentful, in fact, even having more rights stolen from him.

Did they try to stop others from voting in an organized, national campaign? No. Did they go to polling places and try to scare people? No, did he try to stop the counting of votes? No. Did they try to shut white Republican males off the voting rolls? No.

The media is obsessed with the Trump voter, partly I think because the media is generally located in a liberal city and they are fascinated by what they don’t understand and after decades the Republicans have turned on the media Have played the game of referee by accusing them of ignoring. Everyday Americans” – which no one ever questions as referring only to Republicans – feel guilt about being “elite” and see white working class people as real Americans whom they should worship.

But there are many other “real Americans” who built this country, who shed blood for this country, who served this country, who heroically volunteered to vote in our elections and teach our children, but these Americans are ignored. It’s ironic that I’ve been telling that story for years from a Trump-dominated district, even though I grew up in suburban and real Detroit, and worked to register voters in Georgia during Obama’s first campaign for the presidency. Was.

For years, we’ve heard that Trump should not be prosecuted because it would help Trump get elected or his supporters would turn violent. This framing is vague enough to be seen through. When you hear a media commentator giving so much importance, it means they don’t understand the real world.

In the real world, non-Trump voters have been dealing with the threat of violence in their communities since his first campaign. Many of them are afraid to put up signs like “Kindness Matters” lest it give away their anti-Trump position, and sadly, some have been bullied by Trump thugs for not voting. Threatened.

But at the same time, is this really the argument our media is willing to accept as a viable political position by one of the two major political parties – that we should allow Trump to refrain from his attacks on the voting rights of most Americans? To be allowed to be terrorized. , — that the rights of most Americans should be ignored because Donald Trump doesn’t like to lose?

Biden voters have been largely legitimate, having tacitly endured this specific assault by Trump’s alleged criminal enterprise for years. His stories have not been publicized. Instead, the focus is usually on the entitled supporters of the rich, white guy who lost the election and tried to destroy the United States because of it. Somehow there is almost a belief that these people had a right to attempt to steal the votes of the majority of Americans. Their right to be heard, their valuable free expression, is a common topic of media debate.

Instead we should focus on the precious right to vote and focus on those who have followed the rules and when this was not enough doubled down to work harder, and on the patriotic participants in this democracy keep coming back as something they clearly like and want to participate in. They are fighters for justice and freedom. They deserve our praise, our thanks and our recognition.

Biden voters waited two and a half years for any show of justice. Justice is simply asking the legal system to acknowledge that their attempt to steal votes was illegal. Donald John Trump and his alleged criminal enterprise are innocent until proven guilty, but they are now being held somewhat accountable for their efforts to disenfranchise more than 80 million voters.

Ultimately, this is what justice looks like.

Let’s bring to the fore the stories of the real heroes of the years – the voters who somehow managed, even when all faith in their country was gone and when it seemed no one would stand up for their basic rights, the gallows To hang on There the legal system is waiting to find a hero to do its job.

It should come as no surprise that the protagonist is a black woman from Georgia.

For the real silent majority, we look at you. Your patriotism matters. Your faith and loyalty towards a country that has not always given you back what you deserve is commendable. On behalf of our democracy, we thank you and salute you.
