Debunking the Left's Voter ID Myths

July 8, 2021

The claim that voter ID laws are racist is false. Stopping Socialism’s Justin Haskins explains why.

Many pundits and politicians on the Left claim voter ID laws are "racist" and stop honest Americans from voting lawfully. That's why the United States MUST pass H.R. 1, they claim. The truth tells a very different story, however. Writer/research fellow Justin Haskins explains in this episode of “Stopping Socialism.”
