Aaron Rupar spots logical fallacy in WaPo reporter’s tweet on surging voter turnout in Ga. undercutting Dem narrative – twitchy.com


On Saturday the Washington Post reported that voting is “surging” in Georgia despite Democrat claims the new election law would make it harder to cast a ballot.

Washington Post reporter Amy Gardner tweeted the story this way:

Basically, the story is that the Georgia election law isn’t anything like the “Jim Crow on steroids” that President Biden claimed it to be:

after three weeks of early voting ahead of Tuesday’s primary, record-breaking turnout is undercutting predictions that the Georgia Election Integrity Act of 2021 would lead to a falloff in voting. By Friday, the final day of early in-person voting, more than 700,000 Georgians had cast ballots — three times the number in 2018, and higher even than in 2020, a presidential year.

However, “journalist” Aaron Rupar got a head start on the spin, and it’s very likely this is what the Democrats will be picking up in the coming days:

That tweet should be the new gold standard to describe “clinging to a narrative no matter what.”

In other words, more people are voting in Georgia because the Republicans disenfranchised them, or something.

Because making it a lot harder to vote always leads to increased turnout.

That’s what the Dems would like everybody to believe.


It looks like a modern-day Yogi Berra has arrived:
