Radical Woke Supremacist progressive House Democrats unsuccessfully pushed an amendment lowering the federal voting age to 16 as part of the HR 1 voting rights package on Wednesday. According to C-SPAN, the amendment failed by a vote of 125-302, thank God, after a majority of Democrats voted for it at 125-93.
Democrats are making their move to keep complete control
“A sixteen-year-old in 2021 possesses a wisdom and a maturity that comes from 2021 challenges, 2021 hardships, and 2021 threats,” Representative Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), a member of the progressive “Squad,” who was behind the amendment, said in a statement on Monday. “Now is the time for us to demonstrate the courage that matches the challenges of the modern-day sixteen- and seventeen-year-old.”
Is it just me or have the Democrats so far proposed nothing but power grab moves for their party? They have not proposed a single bill that will make one American life better.
Along with Pressley, Representative Grace Meng (D-NY), and Representative Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), reintroduced the amendment on Monday. All three would be primaried and thrown out of office if Democrat voters cared about the future of our country.
Rep. @AyannaPressley: "My amendment gets to the heart of H.R. 1 and recognizes the contributions that young people continue to make to our democracy. By lowering the federal voting age from 18 to 16 years of age, my amendment would enfranchise young Americans." pic.twitter.com/83xaBB6NRD

The Left is opening the door to more election fraud
Back in February, Pressley said that she was “shocked” that lowering the legal voting age to 16 was such a “polarizing” subject. That’s a clear signal that the Congresswoman from Massachusetts is out of touch with the American people. She made the comment during a Facebook Live discussion with Representative Barbara Lee (D-CA), and author Ibram X. Kendi.
“Dr. Kendi, I was shocked by how polarizing an issue this was, and listen when I would tell people John Lewis is an original co-sponsor of this, you know, our young people deserve to have a stakeholder in our democracy,” Pressley said responding to Kendi, who claimed that lowering the voting age is an example of an anti-racist policy.
How? How is lowering the voting age from 18 to 16 an anti-racist policy? What does race have to do with lowering the voting age? How could these Woke Supremacists find a racial issue in that? If Democrats really want to set an anti-racist policy why not lower the voting age to 7? That will really send a message.
It’s not a new thing either. This amendment to lower the voting age was originally added to HR 1 back in March 2019. The amendment failed then too receiving only 126 votes. You would think these progressives would learn by now that the American people do not want the voting age lowered. But progressives never operate that way. They truly are Woke Supremacists in that they believe that their ideas will fix everything.
