The music icon released a video message late at night at the end of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day to urge legislators who refuse to act in terms of voting rights.
“Any senator who can not support the protection of voting rights in the United States can not say that they support the Constitution,” he said. “Stop the hypocrisy.”
Wonder was ticked off enough to want to use a four-letter word, but got around it as only he can.
“Skip the bull-tish,” he said, emphasizing the last syllable.
Wonder then issued a call for action:
“If you care and support our rights, then do the hard work. You can not please everyone, but you can protect us all. And to keep it all the way real: the Filibuster does not work for democracy. Why do you not want to?”
See his full video message below:
Voting legislation has stalled in the divided Senate, and there have been growing demands to break the filibuster rule to get it passed. But at least two Democrats – late. Joe Manchin (W.Va.) and Kyrsten Sinema (Ariz.) – have said they will not support ending it.
