I give you Mississippi Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith:
HYDE-SMITH: “Sen. Schumer’s question was he was wondering why Georgia wouldn’t campaign on Sundays [sic] Process of collecting signatures … registration and things on Sunday and I just want to answer that. Georgia is a southern state like Mississippi. I can’t speak for Georgia, but I can speak for Mississippi about why we’d never do this on a Sunday or hold an election on a Sunday. You know this is our currency, this is a dollar bill. It says: “The United States of America, in God we trust.” In the chamber of the US Senate is carved in stone: “We trust in God.” When you swore in all of these witnesses, the last thing you said in your instructions was, “Help God.” In God’s word in Exodus 20:18 it says: “Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy.” That is my answer to Sen. Schumer. “
That’s a lot of words just to say, “We don’t want black people to vote.”
First of all, you soulless Blatherskit, the Sabbath mentioned in Exodus is the Jewish Sabbath – Friday evening through Saturday evening. Of course, the Ten Commandments also expressly warn against creating carved images, but …
A golden calf has appeared on CPAC as a golden Trump statue. Both are idols and their worship is a “great sin”, as Moses called the idolatrous calf on the mountain. Sinai & destroys it. Republicans are clearly lost, but who will call many white Christians out of their Trump idolatry? pic.twitter.com/QY0p2tFP5U

Second, Georgia’s proposed rule has no elections on Sundays to do anything with God unless God is also an unreconstructed racist.
The Atlanta Journal Constitution:
The proposal to end the personal early voting on Sunday would be a blow to the hosts of the black churches “Souls for the Elections” Get-out-the-vote events. Early voting is only permitted on weekdays and on a Saturday.
“By trying to eliminate Sunday’s vote, you are targeting people of faith whose jobs and economic circumstances make it difficult for them to get to a polling station,” said Nancy Flake Johnson, president of the Greater Atlanta Urban League. a civil rights activist organization for economic justice. “Many of them are colored people and low-income citizens who have transportation problems or who work long hours.”
Republican lawmakers said the proposals would boost voter confidence new electoral laws After the presidential election in November, there were doubts among their voters.
Yes, there is your answer, fish pear. There’s the whole thing about Hyde-Smith not living in Georgia or representing Peach State voters.
But tell me again, Chief Justice John Roberts, why the proxy law is no longer needed. They already want to ban the distribution of water and pizza to people who are in artificially long series of votes. What’s next? American Ninja Warrior obstacle course? Literacy tests written in Zapf dingbats? How much more obvious can it be that they are trying to suppress minority participation?
Fortunately, in the face of waning criticism, Georgia Republicans have overturned some of the most restrictive provisions of their bill (the revised and still heavily oppressive new law would allow local officials to open elections two Sundays before the elections). but this nonsense tells you where their heads are.
Yes, I know that “God” is printed on our money. That’s why I buy everything with Chuck E. Cheese Skee-Ball tickets whenever possible. But that has nothing to do with the problem at hand.
On the other hand, very little is saying that these people have a lot to do with any part of the consensus reality these days.
