Reacting to President Biden’s speech on voting, MSNBC’s ReidOut host Pleasure Reid insisted with out proof on Tuesday that not solely do Republicans wish to suppress the vote of African-People, however they wish to finish elections solely by not having “the vote in any respect and I believe y’all must get up to that.”
On the finish of an A-block, the NAACP’s Sheryl Ifill implored People “to grasp” the necessity to take away the filibuster and move the Democratic Get together’s voting insurance policies “is a democracy challenge” and “not a distinct segment challenge for black individuals, so now we’re in a disaster as a result of what they have been making an attempt out simply on black and brown individuals, they’ve now determined to run the tables on the entire nation.”
So, ban all individuals from voting? The place did that come from? The place’s the proof America is headed towards North Korea? Fortunately, our Invoice D’Agostino addressed the left’s lies about this challenge in a brand new explainer video right here.
Reid reacted to Ifill’s name to motion with extra lies and the declare in regards to the GOP ending elections interval:
[I]f they coming [sic] for us, they at all times begin with black of us after which they gonna come [sic] for the remainder of you. That’s the approach it really works. They need authoritarian management. They don’t need — they don’t need the vote in any respect and I believe y’all must get up to that.
Previous to this, Reid fretted about what number of senators could be modern-day James Eastlands and allow new segregationists with R’s subsequent to their identify, however Ifill made clear the Deep State was on their facet as she doesn’t “have any worries that the Division of Justice is not going to pull out all of the stops.”
Reid agreed, lamenting voting has been “framed as if this is a matter about black individuals, and it isn’t as a result of when you placed on the desk that you could merely ban teams that you just don’t wish to vote…and use all of those tips to make it so, so unattainable and so onerous that they will’t vote, that can be utilized on anyone.”
The nuttiness was superfluous even earlier than that forwards and backwards as Reid led off the present with MSNBC regulars Errin Haines of The nineteenth and Jason Johnson of The Grio.
After Reid claimed Republicans ceased assist for the 1965 Voting Rights Act as a result of Barack Obama was elected President and he’s, you already know, Black, she insisted Republicans are cynically utilizing former President Trump’s “Huge Lie” to allow them to “lock these pesky” Black individuals out “as a result of their political survival relies on taking energy, not incomes it.”
Have we talked about already how what Reid stated on Tuesday have been limitless lies?
For his or her half, Haines and Johnson had loads of kindling for this incendiary pow wow amid Reid’s cockamamie declare that Senate Minority Chief Mitch McConnell (R-KY) will go down as our time’s Strom Thurmond for having used the filibuster greater than anybody in historical past (besides Thurmond) (click on “develop”):
HAINES: [Republicans] wanted to develop. They wanted to attempt to attraction to a extra various citizens, to attempt to attraction to extra People and to get them to interact with the Republican Get together. That technique has since been deserted and so once you now not have a technique of increasing the citizens, voting rights is all of a sudden, you already know, not as bipartisan of a problem.
REID: I imply, it’s very clear, Jason, that, I imply, when the historical past is written, Mitch McConnell goes to be remembered because the Strom Thurmond of our period. I imply, he used the filibuster greater than anybody has ever used it, in all probability in league in Strom Thurmond’s use of it, however he used it to attempt to cease the primary black President from being profitable. Like, it’s very clear he’s going to be Strom Thurmond. We obtained that. The one query is what number of James Eastlands are going to be.
REID: Are we on the level now the place, politically, as a result of they’ve left themselves little room to maneuver, we’re simply at a degree the place Republicans are going to get away with claiming they’re not making an attempt to cease individuals from voting after which actually cease them from voting and stealing the elections after if individuals win, get what they need anyway?
JOHNSON: So, first, Pleasure, I wish to let you already know we don’t know what the historical past books will say about Mitch McConnell as a result of after we speak about voter suppression, isn’t that crucial race concept? They usually’re making an attempt to make that unlawful too?
REID: Oh, proper.
JOHNSON: So, we — we don’t even know —
REID: It will likely be unlawful.
JOHNSON: — what the historical past books may say about this after we get there. Right here — right here’s the issue. It’s very clear what their plan is. They need politicians to have the ability to choose voters as an alternative of voters selecting politicians[.]
“Politicians…choose[ing] voters?” Isn’t that what liberals wish to do with their so-called voting rights payments?
