MSNBC’s Mehdi Hasan Shocked to Hear Black Individuals Are Allowed to Vote


MSNBC is proof that the beloved cartoon Looney Tunes has been rebooted as a live-action tv channel. However, all kidding apart, a day doesn’t go by that I don’t hear one thing obnoxious from this self-purported information channel. 

This time the instance of blatant madness comes from “Morning Joe,” the place a spirited debate between Mehdi Hasan and Shadi Hamid occurred relating to the same old battle cry of the liberals: the upcoming destruction of democracy.

You may acknowledge the title Shadi Hamid; I reported earlier about his phase with Jen Psaki, the place he accurately defined that all of us should study to reside in the identical house as those that disagree with us.

Mr. Hamid is likely to be the one motive to tune in to the channel, frankly. His newest endeavor was to elucidate that the liberal rhetoric round saving democracy is likely to be inflicting extra hurt than good; think about that.

Wait… Black Individuals Can’t Vote?

The alternate that originally caught my consideration was a query Mr. Hasan posed to Mr. Hamid:

“Do you imagine the 2024 election will likely be a free and truthful election if black persons are denied the fitting to vote?”

Mr. Hamid’s response is admirable and might need satisfied me to purchase his e-book, The Drawback of Democracy: America, the Center East, and the Rise and Fall of an Thought:

“Black persons are denied the fitting to vote? That’s the primary I’ve heard…”

You may’t hear the remainder of what Mr. Hamid says as a result of, in typical wig-out vogue, Mr. Hasan feigns shock. This explicit back-and-forth highlights what the Democrats proceed pushing regardless that all proof factors on the contrary.

Simply As a result of You Can Vote Doesn’t Imply You Can Vote

There was file voter turnout in states which have early voting for the midterms, significantly in Georgia. However that doesn’t matter to Hasan, or Stacey Abrams, who’s already teeing up her argument in opposition to conceding if she loses to Governor Kemp:

“…it’s incorrect to recommend that there’s a correlation between voter turnout and voter suppression as a result of suppression is about boundaries.”

On the flip aspect, her marketing campaign supervisor Lauren Groh-Wargo states:

“Extra black males have voted early in individual in uncooked numbers in 2022 than 2020 or 2018 on the identical level.”

So wait a second… let me get this straight: the state that the White Home known as “Jim Crow 2.0” is seeing the biggest early voter turnout to incorporate black voters… however it’s nonetheless voter suppression?

White Home Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre explains:

“Talking typically, after all, extra broadly, after all, excessive turnout and voter suppression can happen on the identical time.”

Oh, OK, I see now. The truth that extra persons are popping out to vote early, no much less, doesn’t imply there aren’t vital boundaries to voting.

Oh, wait, no, that doesn’t make any sense. However for Democrats, that doesn’t matter; it’s fascinating how they appear to be primed and able to deny election outcomes earlier than they’re even accessible.

So A lot Sense

I want I may’ve heard extra from Mr. Hamid, however sadly, Mr. Hasan made it very troublesome to catch what his counterpart needed to say. I caught an alternate relating to this alleged assault on democracy that Democrats hold talking about.

Mr. Hamid brings up that when liberals (and I might argue the media generally), proceed to push this argument that there’s a menace to democracy that, they’ll try and justify:

“…extraordinary measures to suppress that menace.”

He continues to elucidate that an actual menace is that justification that would result in:

“…suppressing democracy with a view to reserve it.”

He brings it residence on the finish when he hits the bullseye on what really is a hazard to our democracy:

“I fear your rhetoric can lead us to do issues we shouldn’t do in a democratic context and for us as liberals to go too far into demonizing our opponents and the opposite aspect.”

That’s one clever level-headed liberal; he doesn’t know he’s on MSNBC, proper?

Instance After Instance

You may activate the tv or examine Twitter at any given time on any given day and discover examples of this identical form of rhetoric that Mr. Hamid is referencing. Mehdi Hasan is well-known for it and had no drawback going after Republicans who congratulated the brand new Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni:

“What’s been so miserable is to see a lot of the, quote unquote, liberal media, the mainstream media, the MSM, giving a cross to Meloni, or taking part in down her and her social gathering’s fascist roots, focusing extra on the truth that she’s feminine, and fewer on the truth that she’s, , fascistic.”

There’s that phrase… fascist. It seems like these pundits have a listing of names to name conservatives and cycle by them within the hopes it’ll stick.

I discover it miserable to see a lot of the quote-unquote, liberal progressive media not gushing over the primary feminine Prime Minister of Italy as a lot as they did the primary feminine Vice President of the USA.

As a substitute, they centered on Harris’ gender and minority standing and fewer on the truth that she’s, , incompetent.

Then you’ve gotten Pleasure Reid, who summed up the one motive she believes anybody would select to not vote for a Democrat:

“It’s terrifying what number of People will select literal fascism, feminine serfdom, local weather collapse and the reversal of every little thing from social safety and Medicare to scholar mortgage reduction as a result of they suppose giving Republicans the ability to research Hunter Biden will deliver down fuel costs.”

How extremely tone-deaf and disconnected from actuality is Pleasure Reid? Individuals aren’t voting for Republicans due to Hunter Biden. Nonetheless, it’s truthful to need to know what his father, who’s the chief of the free world, knew and didn’t find out about Hunter’s dealings. 

Persons are voting for Republicans as a result of they’ll’t afford groceries. They must work an additional ten years into their 70s as a result of they’ve misplaced 1 / 4 of their retirement financial savings. They’re voting for Republicans as a result of they really feel unsafe strolling within the neighborhood, and a thousand different actual causes.

However hold telling us how we’re the fascists and the way we’re a menace to democracy. I’m positive that can serve you effectively within the upcoming elections.
