California Democrats are boycotting everyone. Last time I checked, the state’s boycott of various other states for horrid crimes like protecting religious freedom or enforcing immigration laws had encompassed a massive amount of the country.
After 5 years, California is boycotting 103 million Americans across 1.2 million square miles.
Along with Texas, Florida, Kansas, and Oklahoma, Democrats are also boycotting Alabama, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Mississippi, Montana, both Carolinas and Dakotas, Tennessee, and West Virginia. American children may memorize lists of states while California State University students have a list of “banned states” to memorize that Democrats believe they shouldn’t visit.
Since California is actually run out of San Francisco, it’s fitting that the toilet by the bay has an even more extreme version of boycott laws and that it stuck Nevada on there because it didn’t understand the law in question.
“This is definitely not anything we want,” said Emily Persaud-Zamora, the executive director of the Nevada voting rights group Silver State Voices.
State Voices is a lefty group funded by Soros, Tides, and assorted radical foundations intended to help minorities vote for Dems.
Persaud-Zamora was dumbfounded that Nevada would be punished by San Francisco for its voter access stance. Nevada last year adopted permanent vote-by-mail access, with the goal of expanding voter access. In 2019, it passed AB 345, which enabled same-day voter registration; initiated an automatic registration law; and expanded both early and absentee voting. In 2019, Nevada also passed AB 431, which made it easier for formerly incarcerated people to vote. Persaud-Zamora was able to rattle off several more bills, all of which made it easier to vote, not harder, and expanded the voting pool. “This will be the first election beyond the pandemic where every active voter will receive a mail-in ballot with paid postage,” she says.
Nevada is under the control of Dems who are pulling out all the stops to rig elections. San Fran decided to sanction the state because it has a long institutional memory, no access to Wikipedia, and is unaware of who runs the state now, and was unable to figure out what a law meant.
Nevada is, nevertheless, on San Francisco’s naughty list. That’s due to last year’s Senate Bill 84. Perasud-Zamora found this baffling. This bill was introduced by a Democratic state senator, passed 60-0 in Nevada’s (Democratic majority) Legislature, and was signed by Nevada’s (Democratic) governor. It raises the maximum number of people who can be in a precinct from 3,000 to 5,000. This bill’s intent, Perasud-Zamora said, was not to disenfranchise minorities but, rather, to ensure that large apartment complexes wouldn’t be confusingly split into multiple precincts.
Why did San Francisco make its move? “According to the criteria in the City’s legislation,” explained Elections Department director John Arntz, “increasing the number of people in a precinct reduces the number of potential polling places and ‘restricts general voting.’”
San Francisco was running low on states to boycott. Besides the law is the law, especially if it’s stupid.
Regardless, San Francisco has made its decree and official travel to Nevada is verboten, as is contracting with businesses headquartered there, even if they’re equitable, minority-owned
Much like the bid by the school board to rename schools because its leadership misread Wikipedia, San Fran’s woke agenda is in the best of hands.
