Republicans refuse to accept the reality of COVID-19 and offer distractions.

‘Jim Crow in a suit and tie’: Outrage over Georgia’s new bills to restrict voting access.

Bills would reduce weekend voting , end automatic registration, and make it illegal to give food and water to voters waiting in line. - Independent

Voter Suppression or Bust. After failing to suppress enough Black votes to steal the 2020 election, Republicans are preparing for a heist the next time around. Republicans want to make those harder to get, easier to reject, and impossible to fix. Other laws make it harder for people to register to vote. Still others want to make it easier to purge registered voters from the rolls. - The Nation

This week's top Political Cartoons highlight Republican bills to suppress voters and attempts to distract the public from the America Rescue Plan with cartoons.

FOX News Distractions

"Fox News Pivots to Dr. Seuss in Desperate Hunt for Post-Trump Content. The conservative propaganda network is going all-in on cancel culture now that Trump is out of office. So are conservative politicians. Fox News has been a having a rough time filling its airwaves. Trump is out of office, Trump’s Twitter feed is out of commission.

This has left the network scrounging for storylines they think will rile up their viewers. They aren’t going to find many of them in Congress, where Democrats are working to pass a coronavirus relief bill. There’s not much in the White House, either, where Biden is mostly doing uncontroversial things like trying to get people vaccinated. What’s left? Sweet, sweet cancel culture." - Rolling Stone

American Rescue Plan

"Republicans Hope to Convince People Relief Bill Cutting Child Poverty in Half Is the Devil’s Work. The GOP believes it will win back control of Congress by highlighting its complete and total opposition to a bill that will bring significant relief to millions of families—and disproportionately benefit their constituents.

The bill will do a hell of a lot of good for people who’ve struggled both during the pandemic and before it started, and, according to experts, may cut child poverty in nearly half just on the basis of the expanded child tax credit. Which explains why it received exactly zero Republican support and why the GOP is hoping to convince people the legislation is the worst thing to happen to America since the bombing of Pearl Harbor." - Vanity Fair
