For decades now, the Republican party has been on an assault against voting rights. Rather than creating policies that would appeal to minorities and young people, the GOP has decided they should just make it harder for them to vote.
During a recent speech, Joe Biden tore into those forces who are trying to prevent all Americans from participating in the democratic process. Peter Doocy responded by asking Jen Psaki if the president has sympathy for anti-democracy Republicans.
The Fox reporter asked during a Friday presser, “As you talked about a year ago and working with Republicans, now [President Biden] is talking about Republicans that don’t agree with voting rights, he’s describing them as George Wallace, Bull Connor, and Jefferson Davis. What happened to the guy who, when he was elected said: ‘To make progress me must stop treating our opponents as our enemy’?”
Psaki explained, “I think everybody listening to that speech, who’s speaking on the level, as my mother would say, would note that he was not comparing them as humans. He was comparing the choice to those figures in history and where they’re going to position themselves, if they as it – as they determine whether they’re going to support the fundamental right to vote or not.”
