WATCH: Congressman SLAMS Democrats on Voter ID Laws Being "Racist"


While we've learned over the last couple of years that there are a lot of RINOs in Congress, there are still some good guys there as well. Men and women who are still willing to put up a fight for freedom.

One of these individuals is Rep. Burgess Owens. He is smart and logical when it comes to making a case for the issues that he supports or is against.

Sadly, Democrats don't understand logic and he might as well be speaking Greek to them sometimes.

One of the biggest arguments from the Democrats when it comes to securing our voting process is the concept of showing ID prior to voting. Democrats claim that this is racist.

However, Rep. Owens said exactly what I would have said recently about absurd this is, and even making that claim is in itself racist.

Owens tweeted,

You know what's racist? Assuming because I'm black that "I just don't have the capability of getting an I-D."

Disclaimer: We are capable of getting and I-D (and even using the internet!)

He also tweeted,

I use my I.D. to drive a car, to get a job, to board a plane, pick up prescriptions, and virtually everything else in life...

So tell me again, why is showing an I.D. "voter suppression"?

Owens then went on to tell of an event between his grandfather and the police. This is very interesting:

"These rights protect my life, liberty and property, were granted to me by God, and cannot be taken away from me by D.C. bureaucrats. I grew up in the Deep South at a time when black Americans were unable to defend themselves. After the Civil War, black codes and Jim Crow laws prevented prohibited people of color from owning firearms. In the mid-1950’s Martin Luther King Jr. carried firearms for self-protection but his application for concealed weapon permit was denied because of racist gun control laws in his state.

As a child, my dad witnessed an altercation between his father and a southern white man who thought my grandfather was being disrespectful and threatened to teach him a lesson. Later that night he drove up to my grandfather’s home with a bunch of his friends, standing on the floor-runner of a Model-T Ford. My grandfather was prepared; he and his brothers had hidden around his front porch. As these bullies and cowards approached the house, they heard the click of rifles and left as fast as they came. Without firing his gun on another human being, my grandfather’s right to own a firearm ensured his rights to protect his life, liberty and property."
