On Wednesday, Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) conceded that President Joe Biden may have gone “a little too far in his rhetoric” the day before when he compared critics of Democrats wanting to end the filibuster so that they can ram through any legislation they want to segregationists.
So, you are a segregationist, which back in the day were Democrats who put up little signs on water fountains saying “Whites Only,” and Democrats who didn’t allow black people into restaurants and Democrats who made black folks sit at the back of the bus, if you are against Joe Biden violating the US Constitution and rigging future elections by legalizing things like ballot harvesting and by forcing states to get rid of voter ID laws and other election integrity laws that make it easier to vote but harder to cheat.
We live in an absurd world where Joe Biden is still taken seriously. He’s currently at 33% approval rating. Richard Nixon was heading to the helicopter when he was at 36%.
CNN’s Very Jake Tapper asked the senator from Illinois if he thought it was “stark” for the president to compare fellow Democrats who disagree with removing and/or changing the filibuster rule for political power, such as Senators Kyrsten Sinema (D-AR) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) to the Confederate President Jefferson Davis who was a member of the Democrat Party before the Civil War, and to known Democrat segregationists George Wallace and Bull Connor. Democrats should not have the right to compare Republicans to past racist Democrats during slavery and segregation. That ugliness is owned by Democrats.
“It is stark, and I will concede that point, but don’t overlook the reality that in 20 different states, governed and led by Republicans in legislature and the governorship in each and every one of them, taking step by weary step to ensure fewer Americans vote,” Durbin responded.
That is a bald-faced lie! Senator Durbin knows it’s a lie. Every state that passed election integrity laws made it easier to vote and harder to cheat.
Durbin should be censored on social media for spreading misinformation.
Durbin then said that there are “parallels” between segregationists who worked to “reduce the opportunity for African Americans to vote” with politicians today who do not support Biden’s agenda. But when you read it, the legislation takes away the right to have your vote count by allowing ballot harvesting and mail-in voting and getting rid of voter ID.
Joe Biden and Dick Durbin both believe it is racist to ask for an ID to vote for the people you want to elect to represent you while at the same time they believe it is perfectly okay to ask for a COVID vaccination passport to go into a grocery store. We should start calling Democrats who talk about vaccine passports racists because the same black Americans they claim are too stupid to know how to obtain an ID will be trying to enter grocery stores every day of the week. That is how absurd the Democratic Party has become.
The Senate Majority Whip just said that voter ID is akin to being a segregationist, and they don’t realize how racist it is to insult black people that way.
“Perhaps the President went a little too far in his rhetoric, some of us do, but the fundamental principles and values at stake are very similar,” Durbin told Tapper.
What Durbin meant to say was, “No, I fully agree with the president. I just don’t want you or your viewers to know it.”
During his Georgia speech on Wednesday, Biden asked listeners, “Do you want to be on the side of Dr. King or George Wallace? Do you want to be on the side of John Lewis or Bull Connor? Do you want to be on the side of Abraham Lincoln or Jefferson Davis? This is the moment to decide, to defend our elections, to defend our democracy.”
The irony of that statement will never be mentioned by our failing mainstream media. George Wallace, Bull Connor, and Jefferson Davis were all Democrats.
