Vice President Kamala Harris had a message of support for Texas Democrats who fled the state rather than vote on a new election integrity bill.
“I do want to first start by making a statement about the legislators in Texas who are showing extraordinary courage and commitment,” Harris said. “I met with them when many of them traveled to Washington D.C., we sat down and had an extensive conversation in the Roosevelt room in the White House and I applaud them standing for the rights of all Americans and all Texans to express their voice through their vote unencumbered.”
“They are leaders who are marching in the path that so many others before did it, when they fought and many died for the right to vote,” Harris added.
The “leaders” whom Harris is referring to are Texas Democrats who refuse to accept the results of a “democratic” election and are dodging a vote on new election integrity laws. The “commitment” the vice president mentioned refers to grabbing a case of beer and “flee-a-bustering” the state to avoid a quorum.
Beer-fueled road trips are now ‘just like fighting and dying for the right to give all Americans to vote,’ according to the propagandists in the Biden administration.
But that would be something the Union soldiers did for black Americans who were slaves during the Civil War. On Monday, Jen Psaki also couldn’t resist going to the Civil War card to smear election integrity laws.
“He’ll lay out the moral case for why denying the right to vote is a form of suppression and a form of silencing,” Jen Psaki said about a forthcoming Biden speech. “He will redouble his commitment to using every tool at his disposal to continue to fight to protect the fundamental right of Americans to vote against the onslaught of voter suppression laws based on a dangerous and discredited conspiracy theory that culminated in assault on our Capitol.”
“He’ll call out the greatest irony of the big lie is that no election in our history has met such high standard with over 80 judges, including those appointed by his predecessor, throwing out all challenges,” she continued. “He’ll also decry efforts to strip the right to vote as authoritarian and anti-American and stand up against the notion that politicians should be allowed to choose their voters or to subvert our system by replacing independent election authorities with partisan ones.”
“And he will highlight the work of the administration against this, the necessity of passing the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and how we need to work together with civil rights organizations to build as broad a turnout and voter education system to overcome the worst challenge to our democracy since the Civil War,” she added.
The Democrats are ratcheting up their rhetoric. One has to wonder that a party that ‘won’ by such a massive margin in the 2020 elections are so desperate to prevent basic election integrity laws from going into effect.
