Texas Republicans are adding fuel to the GOP voter suppression fire with a new law that promises to "preserve the purity of the ballot box"-- a phrase that has been used throughout the country's history to disenfranchise voters "deem[ed] unfit" to vote.

Since the Civil War, racist lawmakers have used those words to disenfranchise Black voters, as Democratic Texas state Rep. Rafael Anchía so eloquently pointed out to a clueless Republican.

"Are you aware of the history behind that provision of the [Texas state] Constitution?" Rep. Anchía asked Republican Rep. Briscoe Cain.

"I-I'm not," Cain answers.

Should've done more research, huh? Watch him endure the embarrassment he earned.

However, Kimmel made sure to point out the utter hypocrisy of our right-wing controlled Supreme Court forcing women to have babies in times of massive economic insecurity. You know, like a freaking shortage of baby formula. But hey, it's all about worshiping the fetus and hating the actual child after birth for these Christian Taleban Republicans.
