LIAR: Bernie Sanders Claims Republicans Are Trying to BLOCK RIGHT TO VOTE (VIDEO)
No one is trying to take away anyone’s right to vote. This is a fake issue, made up by progressive activists and perpetuated by Democrat politicians and liberals in media.
The clip below is from a Democratic forum on MSNBC Friday night which was hosted by Rachel Maddow.
Here’s a partial transcript via the liberal blog Talking Points Memo:
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) called Republicans “political cowards” for their efforts to restrict voting rights and suggested a constitutional amendment might be necessary to protect the franchise.
“Maybe this is personal because I run for office. Sometimes you lose, sometimes you win,” Sanders said, when Rachel Maddow brought the topic up at Friday’s MSNBC Democratic 2016 Forum.”It has never occurred to me as a candidate to figure out a way to deny the vote to people because they might vote against me. People who do that are political cowards. They’re afraid of a fair election.”
He said the push for voting restrictions was a “a real crisis in this country” and said legislation or “maybe a constitutional amendment” was needed to guarentee that everyone 18 years of age is registered to vote.
What is he talking about? We already have a system which guarantees that everyone 18 years of age is eligible to vote.
Watch the video:
This is a classic case of Democrat projection.
They claim Republicans are trying to take away people’s voting rights as they flood the country with illegal immigrants and try to repeal the Second Amendment.
