Thursday on MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show, former Obama administration Attorney General Eric Holder said protesters needed to be “in the streets” getting arrested in the political fight over voting laws.
Anchor Rachel Maddow asked, “What do you make of the direct action strategy that is being brought by voting rights advocates?”
Holder replied, “Raising the consciousness of people by demonstrating, by getting arrested, by doing the things that ended segregation. If you asked people back in the 1950s, do you think marching, demonstrating will bring down a system of American apartheid? You probably would have said, no, that won’t happen. We shouldn’t lose faith right now. We shouldn’t lose faith. Citizens can make a change. Citizens need to be in the streets. Citizens need to be demonstrating. Citizens need to be calling representatives to demand the kind of change that will make this country more representative, make our democracy more fair. ”
Their entire conversation, like every conversation in the far-left news media, is pure political theater. The only voting rights under attack are those of Republican citizens, whose votes are being cancelled out by massive Democrat election fraud. The only voter suppression is coming from the Democrats, who reject election integrity legislation that actually would “make our democracy more fair.”
Holder and Maddow are liars and propagandists, creating a false narrative about democracy being under attack from the right. In fact, they are coordinating to turn our democracy into a one-party state.
