4. redistricting has rigged the election now...

Votes won't count as much because they've changed the districts to spread out minority and Democratic voters so their votes won't count for any possible majority to get anyone elected. The courts blocked these laws prior to the SCOTUS decision because it was deliberately discriminatory. Even if they can take it back to court under section 2, the voters will have already been disenfranchised before any decision can be made about it. It's just bad all the way around. The ultimate right-wing gerrymandering.
