In the closing minutes of Sunday’s Meet the Press, NBC political director Chuck Todd led a panel of mostly liberal media types in a discussion accusing the Republican Party of a nationwide effort to strip Biden voters, more specifically minorities, of their right to vote. Luckily, Danielle Pletka, senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute stood in the breach and called out the lies, gave examples of liberal states enacting the same election policies, and made heads rhetorically explode while doing it.
After Todd played a clip of Attorney General Merrick Garland announcing that the Department of Justice was looking to take states to court over their election integrity laws, PBS White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor led the way in praising the politically motivated move and peddled smears against Republicans.
“When you talk to people who are really familiar with the thinking about this, it's that Democrats realize that they might- that it’s not going to only be solved in a legislative way. There has to be a judicial and a court battle ahead,” she said.
Alcindor went on to accuse the GOP of creating an “existential crisis in America,” and falsely suggested they were not just out to “suppress people's vote but nullify people's votes.” “That that can't be the way America works,” she declared. “Republicans in state legislatures are saying if you- essentially, and critics would say, that if you, if we don't like the way that you voted, we will take away your vote.”
