One of the little inconvenient facts of history, which has been memory-holed by the left for their own purposes, is that the politicians and agitators of the American South during the Civil Rights Era were actually Democrats.
That’s another thing the Democrats forget on a regular basis.
On Sunday, March 7, 1965, white Alabama state troopers brutally attacked civil rights activists in Selma as they crossed the Edmund Pettus Bridge in a march for voting rights. According to Kamala Harris, Republicans passing voter ID laws (which black Americans support) and limiting mail-in voting are just like the actions of those troopers.
“Those brave marches continued to push forward to secure the freedom to vote. And they were pushed back. Today we stand on this bridge at a different time. We again, however, find ourselves caught in between injustice and justice, between disappointment and determination, still in a fight, to form a more perfect union,” she said.
“We brought the freedom to vote act, yes, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act to the floor of the United States Senate,” she said. “And on the night of Jan. 19, every Republican senator in the United States Senate voted to block the passage of this law.”
