Eddie Glaude Calls Efforts To Limit Voting An ‘Extension Of The Insurrection’ | Deadline | MSNBC


  1. I feel so old because I just don’t get it? So the GOP would rather not know the opinions of those who differ? Things have gotten out of control! I pray to any God who will listen save humanity!

    1. @Polar Opposite Rome lasted for about a thousand years. That alone makes us different than them. I guess we simply sped up the process of rise, decline and fall.

    2. @Polar Opposite I live in Houston and most of the young people I know here on the east side are of mixed ethnicity, blacks, whites, oriental, and hispanic. Some of them have more than one job and most seem to have become more politically active in the last few years. I’ve also noticed they’ve become more active in recycling, cleaning up the environment, and combating man made climate change. They also don’t seem very interested in religion. Yeah, maybe you live in a republican bubble, I don’t know.

    3. Love you Stacey Abrams….dirtydonnie fears you for a good reason,plz keep up your tireless crusade to stop voter suppression as the Republicans keep finding new ways to cheat

    4. @Charles Zorn I too believe in the younger generation, I am the proud mother of three grown men who are wonderful “people” acceptance of others and science and loving thy neighbor.

  2. 7 pm cable news coverage:
    CNN = 911 call from the Atlanta shooting
    MSNBC: Update on the victims
    Fox: Biden and the Dems are going to destroy America

  3. “There’s no English equivalent for silovik. It doesn’t translate succinctly because to create something as Machiavellian as a silovik requires both the KGB and the GRU, and then a shift from communism to capitalism, followed by a gear-grinding reverse into despotism.” 
    ― Tanya Thompson, Red Russia..

    Since the end of the Cold War, most democratic breakdowns have been caused not by generals and soldiers but by elected governments themselves. Like Hugo Chávez in Venezuela, elected leaders have subverted democratic institutions in Georgia, Hungary, Nicaragua, Peru, the Philippines, Poland, Russia, Sri Lanka, Turkey and Ukraine.

    Democratic backsliding today begins at the ballot box. The electoral road to breakdown is dangerously deceptive. The constitution is suspended or scrapped. Elected autocrats maintain a veneer of democracy while eviscerating its substance.

    Institutions alone are not enough to rein in elected autocrats. Constitutions must be defended, by political parties and organized citizens but also by democratic norms. Without robust norms, constitutional checks and balances do not serve as the bulwarks of democracy we imagine them to be. Institutions become political weapons, wielded forcefully by those who control them against those who do not..

    This is how elected autocrats subvert democracy – packing and “weaponizing” the courts and other neutral agencies, buying off the media and the private sector (or bullying them into silence) and rewriting the rules of politics to tilt the playing field against opponents. The tragic paradox of the electoral route to authoritarianism is that democracy’s assassins use the very institutions of democracy – gradually, subtly, and even legally – to ki// it.

    1. David J: Your writing is clear and timely and I applaud your message. If I had a huge platform and a big enough bullhorn I’d shout out your message across the world. Democracy is on life support and too many are racing to pull the plug on it.

  4. In the name of this is my Country. What about everyone else living in America. America isn’t a one race Country. All need to be recognized as America’s.

  5. President Biden you need to pass the law for HR1, because it is your duty, to protect the people who voted for you, and the ones yet not born. Stand up to these rebulicans. We do not need them.

    1. @psycobleach46 tullis thank you. People are getting frustrated with Biden and the filibuster, and Biden on not passing the new minimum wage or getting rid of the filibuster. It’s like they don’t understand how Congress works.

      An Executive Order isn’t going to cut it and he doesn’t have the votes to push through Congress. He has therefore come up with an approach to the filibuster issue that is upsetting McConnell because it will require a level of transparency that will expose the true extent to which the Republican party isn’t about helping the American people. And he has acknowledged that the minimum wage fight will have to be dealt with separately because it’s going to take time to get to an agreement.

      These same people who are complaining would be complaining even more if their relief check was delayed because Biden decided to have the minimum wage and filibuster fight before they were issued. Ridiculous!

    2. @Helen Short Hmmm, Biden signed legislation a week ago that is generational in scope. There’s a lot to do. He knows that.

    1. Here in New Zealand it’s automatic registration unless you’ve moved somewhere else I think just this whole notion of registering where you get your license screams voter suppression

  6. It’s funny the republicans say they want freedom from license, then turn around and claim everyone needs a license to vote. Oh how the hypocrisy never seems to end.

    1. @Polar Opposite Stop strawmanning it only shows your lack of knowledge and/or dishonesty. I never said get rid of voting security. Voter fraud is almost non nonexistent, that is why even Trumps own hand picked judges threw out his trumped up voter fraud suits. If you look at the history of mail in voting it was republicans that used it the most, even Trump votes by mail, but now that dems have jumped on board and are winning elections the republicans all of a sudden don’t like it, and only want it for selected people. If you don’t believe me and think it’s so easy to commit voter fraud go see how many times you can vote and get away with it next time. I’ll bet you can only vote once.

    1. Yes, but his big lie has given voice to these Republican efforts. That there is some kind of widespread fraud. This is what his supporters want to believe. There was maybe a few dozen instances of fraud, in 160 Million votes, and this is the biggest overreaction to a virtually non-existent problem. But you just knew that the Republicans would use this to try to enact more voter suppression laws. They are the party of lies. The party of prejudice and racism. The party of fear and selfishness. All while claiming to be Christian.

  7. Stacey Abrams should be appointed to some kind of cabinet posts that deals with voter suppression on a federal level. She has the big picture.

    1. Not yet. Wait for a few more years. *_Then_* help push her to the next level so all the states get her oversite.

    2. @James Sears
      “Not yet. Wait”?
      Yur wearing one of those goofy red hats and were in DC Jan.6 weren’t you?

  8. Let’s call a spade a spade the problem is the Republicans are afraid of black voters when we show up and turnout in big numbers they lose

  9. Yeah, these people just happened to have bags of excrement with them to smear on the wall. It wasn’t planned my a$$!
