MLK’s niece Alveda King unloaded on Biden over his rhetoric regarding voter law changes.
She said Biden is “playing the race card” to try and pass Democrat voting bills.
She also added that she supported voter ID — saying “we need the ID and sensible voting.”
Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., blasted President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday for “stirring up emotions to get their way” with voting legislation.
Biden said on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day that state laws requiring voter ID or banning mass mailing of absentee ballots are an “assault on our freedom to vote,” particularly for minority Americans.
But voter ID is necessary “because we tell somebody they don’t need an ID, they don’t count,” King told the John Solomon Reports podcast. “They may as well just mark an ‘X’ on a ballot. So we need the ID and sensible voting.”
King added that what “Biden is doing [is] stirring the race card, race baiting, playing the race card, trying to stir up emotion.”
During a speech to push for the bill, Biden claimed those opposing the bill were on the side of George Wallace, Bull Connor, and Jefferson Davis.

Biden omitted his own racist past:
