(UnitedVoice.com) – Can you imagine what it must feel like to be the most helpless majority party in recent US history? It doesn’t take much imagination as the Democratic Party is barely holding on. Internal disagreements hamper their far-left agenda, and when they are united, the GOP thwarts them further with the Senate filibuster. It’s leading to anger and dismay among the Left. Their only solution seems to be using race as a weapon to demagogue those who stand in their way.
On Sunday, June 6, moderate Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) killed the worst ‘voting rights’ legislation in modern US history by announcing he would not vote for the “For the People Act.” Even Manchin recognized the bill was nothing more than a partisan, hostile takeover of the US election system.
Now, Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is ensuring a timely death of the John Lewis Voting Rights Bill, saying it’s totally unnecessary, dooming any chance the Democrats will pass any voting rights legislation leading up to the 2022 midterm elections. In the wake of the Democrat’s revelation that their agenda is in deep trouble, they are lashing out hard, using manipulation as a tool to change America without legislation if necessary.
Democrats Ignore Previous Supreme Court Ruling
In the wake of Manchin’s move to kill the For the People Act, he and moderate Republican Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) got solidly behind the John Lewis Act in an act of compromise. However, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) are adamant both pieces of legislation are required. Of course, they are. The dynamic duo can’t rig the electoral system to their advantage if they don’t pass both bills.
In 2013, the Supreme Court struck down a key provision of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that Democrats want to reverse using the John Lewis Act. In Shelby v. Holder, the court ruled against a provision that required the states and jurisdictions to get approval, or preclearance, from the federal government before they could propose changes to their election laws. The court said the federal law treated states unfairly.
Consider, who would dare stand against John Lewis? Imagine for one minute the consequences of the John Lewis Act. The federal government would stop GOP-led states who are passing common-sense election reform laws dead in their tracks. Especially under a Democratic president intent on using race as a weapon against his opponents.
Democratic End Game
When Democrats took control of both chambers of Congress and the presidency, they believed it was their opportunity to finish the radical transformation of America they started under Barack Obama. Yet, their vision undermines liberty and opportunities for all Americans for the sake of unbridled power and government control. After all, the government is a religion to the Left.
Every day it becomes more self-evident their agenda is tanking, the Progressives become more unhinged. Observing their actions over the last five months makes one thing clear: The Left will bulldoze anyone to achieve their ends. It seems the weapon of choice is the race card.
Biden continually lies and refers to election reform laws in red states as Jim Crow. His ongoing racial campaign is intensifying, and he’s not alone. The Leftist mob is intent on calling 76 million Trump voters racists. They blame “whiteness” for the failure of their agenda. Liberal pundits are even attacking the US flag as a symbol of white supremacy. The Left wants to use Critical Race Theory to indoctrinate the next generation to believe that America is bad and that their parent’s love of country is misplaced.
In just a few short months, the race issue became intense, and no end appears in sight. The goal is to shame, defame, and silence the opposition. Most people don’t want to get involved and risk their careers and livelihoods to push back. Who could blame them?
Yet, despite all his imperfections, Mitch McConnell is pushing back against the Democrat’s dangerous voter reform laws. Other GOP leaders are by his side inspiring millions of Americans to push back against the onslaught of the Left.
If the Leftists are unchecked and get what they want, what’s in store for America’s future?
