    He's a revolting stooge and a disgusting hypocrite. That's why repugs love him.

    Default With gaffe on voting rights, Mitch McConnell confirms what many already fear

    Of course, Sen. Mitch McConnell made a gaffe on Thursday when he said that African-Americans were voting at the same rate as Americans, leaving out the word “white.”

    But sometimes gaffes have a way of stating the truth. McConnell was explaining why democracy was in fine shape, despite the failure of the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act to progress in the U.S. Senate. And for white Americans, the rich white ones that Mitch works hard to represent, that’s probably true. Attempts to overturn the filibuster — used many times against civil rights legislation — failed. McConnell thinks we should suspend the filibuster only when he’s trying to pack the U.S. Supreme Court as he did in 2017.

    For “other” Americans, the ones whose interests are not such a priority for McConnell, democracy doesn’t look so robust. So far, 19 state legislatures have passed 34 laws that add new voting restrictions. The federal bill would attempt to restore federal oversight of states that have had historical problems with allowing minorities to vote, such as Alabama, where John Lewis almost died at the hands of state troopers when he marched for the rights of Black people to vote.

    I think McConnell is a useless prat. A WASTE of time.

    But I am not going to condemn someone for a slip up.
    I GUARANTEE you ALL of you people make them every day.

    And the guy is clearly not a white supremacist...he is married to an Oriental/East Asian (yes, I do not use that MORONIC term 'Asian' for people from the Orient/East Asia).

    this was not even a slip up. Black Americans are a subset of Americans - it even has the word American in it.

    this is whips at the border again. why the right does not call out the left for their retardism each and every time is beyond me

    I have no idea what you are babbling about.
    But it sounds like racism...so bye now.

    There are NO 'races' of humans.
    Just one...all of us...the human race.
    You do not agree?
    I honestly do not give a fuck.

    the thread title is bullshit - as are you

    he said Black Americans vote as much - not black people. It is obvious he respects the citizenship of Black Americans - hence the word American

    the loony lying left had to change his words to make it sound bad
