President Joe Biden made highly controversial remarks during a fiery speech in Philadelphia on Tuesday about voting rights. Biden’s remarks were full of incendiary claims, including that Georgia’s new election laws were “racially discriminatory,” an allegation that he offered no evidence to support. Biden made the remarks while also claiming, “We’re going to face another test in 2022, a new wave of unprecedented voter suppression, and raw and sustained election subversion.” At one point, Biden claimed that the Attorney General, Merrick Garland, would be “dismantling” “racially discriminatory” laws, though he failed to specify how. “For example, Attorney General Merrick Garland announced for the United States Department of Justice is going to be using its authorities to challenge the onslaught of state laws undermining voting rights in old and new ways. The focus will be on dismantling racially discriminatory laws, like the recent challenge to Georgia’s vicious anti-voting law.” Biden targeted Texas, specifically. “In Texas, for example, Republican-led state legislature wants to allow partisan poll watchers to intimidate voters and imperil and impartial poll workers,” Biden claimed.
