Rep. Castro: GOP Voter Suppression Efforts Are A ‘Naked Power Grab’

 

Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) says efforts to advance a voter suppression bill in Texas shows Republicans in that state are both “delusional” and “dangerous.” Rep. Castro tells Lawrence O’Donnell these efforts further demonstrate the need to pass voting rights legislation through the U.S. Congress, or else in “2022, 2024, I don’t know that we’re going to recognize voting in this country.”

  1. All the way back to the University of Texas clock tower mass shooting in Austin, Texas, on August 1, 1966.

    1. Second Amendment! That’s all we’ll have left when you “reimagine” our police forces, right?! 😉

    1. We MUST show the GOP that even their tricks to stay in power won’t work. We NEED a TOTAL blue wave in 2022 and in ALL offices running, not just the seats in Congress! Show them that Trump will NEVER win another term and the current GOP is a dying party!

    2. Oh, J Flow – trust me, you’ll thank us Deplorables when you suddenly can’t afford groceries and gasoline like Obama’s Great Recession. You got played by a JOEjanHorse and you can’t admit it!

  2. Last time this trash happened was 1938. Hitler did this to Germany and now the GOP is taking their shot. Next u will need a tattoo on your arm to get permission to vote. Problem is their will only be one party. Nazi party. And only a select few may vote…PS the brown shirt enforcers are now called proud boy’s.

    1. @Kevin Lee – Defending the republicans and/or the GOP is a pointless and futile act of desperation. The OP is correct, Hitler did the same thing to Germany and all you have to do is look at images from 1945 Germany to see plainly who paid the price for Hitlers madness.

    1. Inevitably –and in the surrounding states– people who may have issues getting a gun in their own states, can now go to TX and buy one no questions asked.

  3. GOP “Naked power grab”… not a good visual. Man, there arent enough bristles on my electric toothbrush to scrub that off my eyeballs.

    1. Power grab?! LOL – Dude, you Democrats are GIVING IT AWAY! LOL Red Tsunami 2022 – unless you FIX those elections, too!

    2. @Kaz Ibbo Not by a longshot. I know what this “President” is doing and it’s UGLY.

    1. It’s almost like they’re arming the masses, restricting voting rights and encouraging the big lie! What are we looking at in 2024?

  4. If we can’t get the feds to check into the Maricopa County Audit (and now the GA audit), how can we expect them to do any legislation on election laws –i hope the current administration takes advantage of controlling both houses and gets the John Lewis Voting Rights Act passed!!

    1. Time’s a ticking! BLM = Black Supremacist, Antifa = Anarchist. Your party will eat their own. The Squad is destroying your party!

    2. @Sole Reaper Far from perfect. I can’t see your image. Knowing MSNBC’s audience, if it’s a middle finger…only one of the five points at me anyway. RINOs need to go too. Drain the Swamp even if its deeper on the Dem side.

  5. We MUST get out and vote in droves and show them that no matter what the GOP throws at us, we will not allow them to defeat us! Every one of Biden’s Republicans needs to vote straight Democrat in 2022 — we MUST prove that Trump will NEVER win another term!

    1. Not gonna happen your way – people are already in a mess. $2 cans of Campbell’s Soup, 50% rise in gas prices? It’s a Biden Recession!

    2. @millenniumman75 Educate yourself, Google the reasons for gas price rises. Nothing to do with Biden.

  6. SKIP THE TEXAS VACATION IF YOU LIKE LIVING. DON’T MOVE THERE UNLESS YOU WANT TO DIE IN ANY OF THE MANY WAYS LISTED BELOW; AND IN NO TIME TEXAS WILL NO LONGER HAVE AIR YOU CAN BREATHE OR CLEAN DRINKING WATER WITH A NON SCIENCE QOP INCOMPETENT AS GOVERNOR. GOOD LUCK TEXAS. YOU WILL NEED IT. VOTE OUT ABBOTT AND THE QOP AND SAVE YOUR STATE.

  7. Still trying to figure out how the Republicans explain how other Republican candidates that were on those same ballots as Trump, won their elections, and Trump lost. And yet some how the election was stolen. Doesn’t make sense. How can that even happen. What’s worse, WHY????? Democrats go through the trouble to add or change 7 million votes for Biden and don’t bother doing it for the US Senate or Congress and not for the state races either???? Wow please tell us how the heck we did that?

    1. I think they know that it is about destroying our Country and put the former Presidents back in the white House to save him ASAP and saved him from 10 lawsuits. And the Georgia and New york investigations Desperate to help him and they have wanted a Authtarian leader for a long time. All about him nothing else matters not even Country.

  8. Rep. Castro & Lawrence O’Donnell speaking TRUTH. I’ve worked in mental health for 32 years & that is absolutely part of the mental health evaluation, who is the current president. The GQP cannot pass that question during their psychiatric examination.
