MSNBC host Joy Reid said Monday in her program “The ReidOut” that Republicans were “the same” as the political party, the Dixiecrat segregationist.
Reid also claimed that Republicans celebrate Martin Luther King Jr., but are opposed to “everything Dr. King fought for.”
Reid said: “Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a day when people who would have stood quadrangularly against everything Dr. King fought for – equal rights, civil rights, the elimination of poverty and especially voting rights – soberly repeat it. partial quote, they memorized in high school. “
Reid then shared video and tweets from the governments. Greg Abbott (R-TX) and Glenn Youngkin (R-VA), reps. Nancy Mace (R-SC) and Tom McClintock (R-CA), Sens. Tom Cotton (R-AR), Rand Paul (R-KY)) and Marco Rubio (R-FL) quote Dr. King.
She continued: “Which brings us to the need to confront yet another big lie. Republicans attacking the right to vote like to claim that no one is being prevented from voting.”
From the Senate floor, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said: “Leading Democrats said they want to break the Senate because of an anti-voting conspiracy sweeping over America. Of course, this is completely false. It does not exist.”
Reid said, “You know, funny enough, that’s exactly what the old version of the Dixiecrats said back in the 1950s and 60s. ‘Oh, no one’s prevented from voting. You just have to tell us how many jelly beans , that’s in this jar, then you can vote. Just read this complicated passage and you can vote completely. Now, of course, we must make sure that your schools are terrible and that you are hardly ever taught to read, let alone anything like that. this passage, but no one is preventing you from voting. ‘ The more dixie craters, interpositionists and nullificationists change, the more they remain the same. “
