Major Companies Join Several Fake News Outlets to Condemn Voter ID Laws in Full Page WaPo/NYT Ad — Because IDs Are Racist Only When Voting

Several companies and CEOs joined far left news organizations to condemn voter ID laws in a full-page ad in the Washington Post and New York Times.

The signators are upset about the Georgia voting law that requires a valid ID to vote absentee.
Liberals think minorities are too stupid or lazy to get a free photo ID to vote.

And, of course, the fake news has been misreporting on this since Georgia signed their new legislation into law.

This comes after Democrats learned in 2020 that they no longer have to knock on doors or make calls or nominate a candidate who can form two sentences together. Instead, they can just created millions of suspect ballots, drive them into voting centers in the middle of the night, block GOP observers from inside the ballot counting rooms, and drive trucks of ballots across state lines when or where needed.

Meanwhile, 62% of Americans believe voter ID laws DO NOT discriminate. reported:

Major corporations, celebrities and other prominent figures signed on to a two-page ad opposing “any discriminatory legislation or measures” that restrict eligible voters from having “an equal and fair opportunity to cast a ballot.”

Netflix, UTA, CAA and ViacomCBS were among the media and entertainment companies to sign the ad, which comes amid concerns over the impact of Republican voting legislation in Georgia, Texas and other states. Also signing were tech companies including Amazon, Alphabet, Apple, Facebook, Pinterest, Reddit and Salesforce, as well as live event businesses Live Nation Entertainment and Jazz Lincoln Center.

The ad featured the headline, “We stand for democracy.” “Voting is the lifeblood of our democracy and we call upon all Americans to join us in taking a nonpartisan stand for this most basic and fundamental right of all Americans.”…

…The two page ad, running in The Washington Post and The New York Times, was paid for by Debra Lee, Casey Wasserman, Ursula Burns, Ken Jacobs, Joel Cutler, David Fialkow, Hemant Taneja, Ken Chenault, Ken Frazier, William Lewis, Clarence Otis and Charles Phillips. It was organized by the Black Economic Alliance, which last month called on corporations to fight restrictive voting laws.

Among the celebrities and other prominent figures signing on to the ad were Paula Abdul, J.J. Abrams, AMC Theaters’ Adam Aron, ViacomCBS’s Bob Bakish, Sacha Baron Cohen, Orlando Bloom, Michael Bloomberg, Scooter Braun, Warren Buffett, Naomi Campbell, Peter Chernin, George Clooney, Dan Cogan and Liz Garbus, Lee Daniels, Larry David, Leo DiCaprio, Channing Dungey, Bryan Fogel, Gary Foster, Josh Gad, David Geffen, Ariana Grande, Matthew Heineman, Ed Helms, Kate Hudson, LaTanya Jackson, Samuel L.
