Joyless Reid: Republicans ‘Same’ as Dixiecrats — They Oppose ‘Everything Dr. King Fought For’
MSNBC host and racial arsonist, Joy Reid claimed Monday that Republicans were the same as the segregationists.
Joyless Reid went on to claim that Republicans celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. but oppose “everything Dr. King fought for.”
She went on to say “Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a day when people who would have stood four-square against everything Dr. King fought for — equal rights, civil rights, the elimination of poverty, and especially voting rights — soberly repeat that one partial quote they memorized in high school.”
Reid continued her unhinged rant “Which brings us to the need to confront yet another big lie. Republicans who are attacking voting rights like to claim that well nobody is being prevented from voting.” Voting rights are liberal speak for not having to show voter ID and other important measures that protect election integrity.
If that wasn’t absurd enough Reid went even further, “You know, funny enough, that is exactly what the old version of the Dixiecrats said, back during the 1950s and ‘60s. ‘Oh, no one is being prevented from voting. You just have to tell us how many jelly beans are in this jar, and you can vote. Just read this complicated passage and you can totally vote. Now, of course, we’re going to make sure your schools are awful, and you’re barely even taught to read, let alone anything like this passage, but no one is keeping you from voting.’ The more Dixiecrats, interpositionists and nullificationists change, the more they stay the same.” In other words because Republicans believe in the rule of law and that there should be voting requirements for everyone that’s somehow racist. If that’s not absurd what is?
