Mitch McConnell, Senate Minority Leader, showing the GOP for what they really, on the Democrat’s concern about voting rights:
“Well the concern is misplaced, because if you look at the statistics, African American voters are voting in just as high a percentage as Americans.”
Racist fuck, there’s no denying it, and yet they wonder why we're all demanding a voting rights act ....
Michael Elizabeth Pence, on January 6th and the Democrats, in an op-ed in the Washington Post:
“Lives were lost and many were injured, but thanks to the selfless and courageous work of law enforcement, the Capitol was secured, and Congress was able to reconvene the very same day and complete its work under the Constitution and laws of the United States. In the year since that fateful day, states across the country have enacted measures to try to restore confidence in the integrity of our elections while ensuring access to voting for every American. Georgia, Arizona and Texas have led the way with common-sense reforms, such as requiring verifiable identification on absentee ballots and using cameras to record ballot processing. Despite this steady progress of state-based reforms, now come President Biden and Senate Democrats with plans to use the memory of January 6 to attempt another federal power grab over our state elections and drive a wedge further into our divided nation.”
Um, Mike, you piece of filth. That day was the day that your followers, Republicans and MAGAts that you courted for four years busted into the Capitol to hang you because your party, and your president, were trying to commit the ultimate power grab and steal an election, so save your hyperbole for those who don’t see you as a spineless POS.
You’re done, Mike. Go home, and have Mother make you some soup.
Nikki Fried, Florida Agriculture Commissioner and Democrat running for governor in 2022, on Ron DeathSantis:
"He is doing everything possible to take power away from local governments, taking away people's abilities to protest, making it harder to vote, talking about, you know, banning books. That's what dictators do. Instead of listening and trying to govern with the people, he is trying to govern over the people, and, you know, that, I'm sorry, I'm a student of history, too. I saw the rise of Hitler. I have studied Hitler and how he got to power, you know, wanting his own militia. [And while there are other states with similar paramilitaries] the reason why this governor wants it is different than the other states that have been utilizing it for emergency purposes. This governor is doing it for the sole purposes of power and doing so to make fear and to instill that, to blame people for what is happening in their lives, blaming certain parts of our society and culture, and that's exactly what Hitler did to the Jews back during World War II."
If you thought Thing 45 was dangerous, DeathSantis is worse because he studied the Thing 45 handbook and found a way to be worse.
Kevin McCarthy, House Minority Leader, promising that if becomes House Speaker, were the GOP to retake the House, that Representatives Ilhan Omar, Adam Schiff, and Eric Swalwell would be stripped of committee assignments.
“The Democrats have been creating a new thing where they’re picking and choosing who can be on committee. Never in the history have you had the majority tell the minority who can be on committee.”
Funny, he cannot even see his own hypocrisy, because he calls out the Democrats for doing it, and then says he’ll do the same.
Seriously, CAST A GODDAMNED VOTE!
Heidi St. John, rightwingnut running for Congress in Washington state, on libraries:
"The public libraries are disastrous. They're actually evil organizations now, because they're run by the American Library Association, which is a wicked organization at its root. And so, I turned in my library card years ago, and for a homeschool mom to turn in her library card, it has to be pretty serious, y'know?"
Heidi claims library bathrooms were not safe for her children and that libraries were peddling pro-LGBTQ+ content to children in secret so that they would be slowly "lulled into a completely backwards way of thinking."
Yes, she’s another GOP loon using fear, rather than ideas, to get elected.
“I am not getting this vaccine. Ever! Never going to get it. I don’t care if I’m on my deathbed and they say it can save you, I’m not going to get it. I’m principally now opposed to it, and I do not understand why anyone who is healthy, able-bodied and young would ever get this vaccine if you’re not at risk of Covid.”
