Voting Rights Groups Have An Ally In The Fight Against GOP Voter Suppression | The Last Word | MSNBC 1

 

43 state legislatures are considering bills to restrict voting rights, and voting advocates fighting back – pressuring large corporations to stand up against disenfranchisement. Cliff Albright, co-founder of Black Voters Matter, says that just like in the 2020 election, the will of the people will win. “We’re going to out-organize them, we’re going to get this law repealed, and we’re going to expand voting rights all across this country. They can’t stand in the way of the wave of history.” Aired on 04/03/2021.

  1. Beginning of the end of GOP as Trump knew it

    • He not only knew it, he caused it as well.

    • Laws can be changed? They may have signed them in, but they can be changed? And, the people in these states, who stand to lose work opportunities? They need to get together and protest Voter Suppression laws!

    • @Ash Roskell They can be changed but it’s a lot of work.

    Need to also pressure the companies of these top richest 1%……they wield the power to turn this around!!

  3. Floda Reltih | April 3, 2021 at 12:25 AM | Reply

    Looks like GOP couldn’t find 11780 votes that Trump needs but let’s cancel other votes.

    • Imagine being so dumb… that you think requiring an I.D. for mail in ballots is racist… because somehow minorities can’t get an I.D… from the same terrible government run DMVs… whether you are rich or poor. Imagine being so dumb as to think making illegal to hand out water and food at a polling station is racist (you could maybe…. bring your own water and food like an adult).

    • Democrats proved cheating is how you win elections now, so may the best cheater win.

    • That phone call has been debunked. Educate yourself better so you don’t sound so ignorant.

    *If you ever feel like your vote doesn’t count , please ask yourself why are republicans trying so hard to suppress it* .

    • StevieD from the fly over country | April 3, 2021 at 9:19 AM | Reply

      @D M DemonRatParty says no need for ID to vote and okay for no IDs when crossing illegally into this country, but “vaccination passport” will be needed by Americans to leave their house? What?

    • I never was suppressed and I still dont feel suppressed, maybe its you???

    • Your vote counts, but, from now on, it will only count once.

    • @Bryan Smart LOLOL

    • I know you are just being a whiny karen but, just in case, you know you would have the biggest law suit case in US history if your vote was truly suppressed? It would be the largest global event ever. Fortunately, we know otherwise…..its your karen that is the biggest event globally.

    We need to remove the ability of corporations to be involved in politics again.

    • @D M . Imagine using ID statistics to suppress votes cause you only serve donors and only get votes with lies about cutting taxes for regular people.
      Imagine believing a party that, for the last 4 decades, used lopsided tax cuts to effectively shift the tax burden towards the middle class and Still keep believing them!!

    • @Ro G you spelled democrats wrong

    • Ha,ha,ha. Citizens United was a great idea when it was all about denying gays a wedding cake. Now! Not such a great idea eh? Republicans never think ahead!

    • @Egon Pax And yet it was 5 conservative justices appointed by Bush, GW Bush, and Reagan who all voted that campaign donations from corporations are “free speech,” and it was the 4 justices appointed by Obama, Ford, and Clinton who opposed it.
      Gee, it’s almost as if you have no idea what you’re even talking about. How dumb that makes you look! 😅😂

    • Dominion too?

    “They can’t stand in the way ” is right . They’re gonna get run over by people who live in the 21st century .

    • Cantbe silenced | April 3, 2021 at 1:02 PM | Reply

      People in the 21st century can’t show id now?

    • Jarry Sciligo | April 3, 2021 at 6:03 PM | Reply

      @Mr Rey Democracy? Georgia is now about as democratic as North Korea. The only difference is the name of the committee that decides the winners.

    • Jarry Sciligo | April 3, 2021 at 6:05 PM | Reply

      @Mark Willoughby LOL, you don’t even know what fascism is. Fascism is a far right system of government where a committee of the ruling party determines the winner of elections. See Grand Council of Fascism, Italy 1922-43. Guess what state in the US just passed a law putting their State Legislature into that exact same role? Take your time.

    • @Jarry Sciligo a gross exaggeration which leads me to believe you are a screaming karen in search of redemption after being fed cow manure for trying to blackmail him with corporations and woke/cancel communism. …….I luv it!!!

    • Mark Willoughby | April 3, 2021 at 6:17 PM | Reply

      @Jarry Sciligo state legislatures have always been in charge of their own election laws. You know what sounds like facism? “How an elite shadow cabal helped fortify the election”.

  8. This photo will be etched in my brain as the Georgia 7, just add very white sheets!!!

    • Imagine being so dumb… that you think requiring an I.D. for mail in ballots is racist… because somehow minorities can’t get an I.D… from the same terrible government run DMVs… whether you are rich or poor.

      Well it would make sense since democrats are so racist, wouldn’t surprise anyone even a little bit. 🤦🏽‍♀️

    • @Sarah Alderman So glad you like the cool aide!

    This video features a whole lotta bald.

  10. when the GQP continuously fail America they leave consumers no other choice!💁🏼‍♀️

  11. VOTE!

  12. Voting is the best and easiest path to a better future. Vote to become what we must become!

  13. Who elected Coca-Cola or MLB to repeal laws passed by the legislature?

    • @Tessmage Tessera I didn’t dodge your question. I’m sorry if you are not a democrat. Democrats react to everything emotionally without paying attention to details. Politicians do lie. If they tell you something, try to research it before reacting. I have never seen where voter ID is racist or voter suppression. The poorest countries in Africa that are entirely blacks use voter ID. How black people in America can’t vote with ID is strange. Anyone against voter ID is encouraging election fraud. Blacks use ID to open bank account and every other thing. How they can’t get ID to vote should give you reasons to questions the lies the democratic party is pushing in the Media.

    • @Tessmage Tessera Again, the bill signed into law doesn’t prohibit Sunday voting. It only prohibit political actors from using water and foods to influence voters who are on the line.

    • Kimberly Winters | April 3, 2021 at 3:45 PM | Reply

      @MRJTV talk about reacting emotionally…I think conservatives better think first before reacting emotionally.

    • Kimberly Winters | April 3, 2021 at 3:46 PM | Reply

      @MRJTV so you think it’s unfair to change your mind about who you will vote for and honestly that it’s that easy to change someone’s mind ?
      You are as out of touch as the monsters you worship.

    • @Tessmage Tessera The bill doesn’t prohibit food or water in lines, you can bring it with you or election workers can give it to you, just not a rep of either party, the bill doesn’t prohibit voting on Sundays..

  14. Good !!!! But pass HR1 the people’s act and John Lewis act ..but keep up the good fight !!!✊

    • Ricardo Cabeza | April 3, 2021 at 11:24 AM | Reply

      Seriously! We need more people voting. People can’t even get water now while waiting in line. How can they not let more people vote? They should split these high traffic precincts. Or add more machines. I’m not sure how people don’t support this.

    • I assume then you support no ID for anything then. I mean if it’s racist suppression to require ID to vote it’s clearly suppression to show ID to drive, buy alcohol, prove your identity, verify employment and prove you got vaccinated.

    • @Ricardo Cabeza you should read the bill, you’re speaking out of ignorance.

    Yeah these CEO of these companies in GA.are just saying the right Talking Point Boycott now until you hit there bottom line

    People are sick of the information that the Noticias stations provide us. And the information that they don’t let us know about

  19. Carlene Kanick | April 3, 2021 at 11:19 AM | Reply

    They need excuses for their failing bottom line because they continue to offend working men and women, these corporations are forcing employees and public to their political needs, we can’t let big government and big corporations to rule us.
