そしてもう一度, 彼は主張した, それは “誤報” アメリカ大統領から来ました.
In a new Washington Post op-ed, Sterling recalled how he faced death threats and was concerned about violence as then-President Trump made claims about the election. He warned that this and worse could happen again if バイデン大統領 does not change his rhetoric about Georgia’s new voting law.
“Though I have not received any threats yet, ありがたいことに, that same foreboding is creeping up again as the president of the United States and others once again spread lies about what is going on in Georgia,” Sterling wrote. “So I plead with the president once again: Someone is going to get hurt. Your words matter. The facts matter.”
Biden has been an outspoken critic of Georgia’s law, but Sterling and others have pushed back against the president for spreading false information about the new legislation.
Sterling described how Biden falsely stated that the law decreases early voting hours when in fact it increases them, and how the president has compared the law to Jim Crow segregation laws, which Sterling called a “lie.”
Noting that he may not agree with every part of the law, Sterling still urged the president to be honest when discussing it, emphasizing his point by repeatedly referring back to the Capitol riot.
“We saw just three months ago how election disinformation such as this can lead to violence,” Sterling said. “It was wrong then, and it’s wrong now.”
