Far-left Democratic Representative Mondair Jones, in a speech in the House of Representatives, described senators who voted against changing the disruption rules to advance voting reform legislation, including Kirsten Senema and Joe Manchin, as “white nationalists.”
A bipartisan group of senators voted on Wednesday against changing the rules for what Jones describes as “Jim Crow disruption,” a term meant to please clueless progressives who have no idea what that means.
“As you just heard, we are living through the worst attack on the right to vote since Jim Crow,” declared Jones (D-New York). “Yesterday, on the Senate floor, white nationalists used the Jim Crow blocker to block voting rights legislation.”
Sinema (D-AZ) and Manchin (WV) have joined 50 Republican senators in opposing the use of nuclear weapons to stall through voting reform legislation that would expand mail voting, grant federal control over elections, and require voter ID laws less restrictive.

Mondir Jones says Cinema and Mansion are white nationalists
It is almost impossible to overstate the level of ignorance implied in Mundir Jones’ reference to Cinema, Mansion, or even his fellow Republicans as “white nationalists.”
For example, Jones’ Democratic colleagues just used “Jim Crow crashes” Just last week To prevent Senator Ted Cruz from imposing sanctions on companies linked to Nord Stream 2, a pipeline that will carry gas from Russia to Germany.

Just two years ago when Donald Trump was president, Democrats used legislative stalling a record 327 times.
Oh, those crazy white nationalists!
Democrats continue to call the stall a “Jim Crow snooze” even though *** just last week, Senate Democrats—at the behest of Biden WH—used Jim Crow’s stalemate to block the enactment of the 55-vote Ted Cruz Penal Code. https://t.co/T3r8RRbO4f https://t.co/J7tGs9aEsh

Jones insists, however, that bipartisan efforts to keep stalling are akin to people supporting slavery.
“We, the people, did not surrender when, having at last ended the scourge of slavery in this nation, white nationalists resisted, violently dismantled Reconstruction, expelled duly elected blacks from office, and prevented black electors from voting booth for generations.

This is what happens when you don’t have an argument
And why wouldn’t Mondair Jones use such inflammatory rhetoric, calling Republicans and fellow Republicans like Cinema and Mansion alike white nationalists?
It’s a tried-and-true formula for the Democratic Party – if you don’t have a coherent and legitimate argument, portray your opponents as racists.
Jones simply follows the example of the face of the current party – President Joe Biden – who has suggested that anyone who opposes voter reform legislation can be compared to apartheid or even the Confederates.
“Do you want to be next to Dr. King or George Wallace? Do you want to be next to John Lewis or Paul Connor? Do you want to be next to Abraham Lincoln or Jefferson Davis?” Biden asked.

Aside from being completely ignorant by nature, Jones’ speech also reveals the hypocrisy of the Democratic Party.
Cinema and Mansion, as you can see, are “white nationalists” for opposing changes to the disruption rule. However, Biden is a hero despite declaring – fairly recently – that ending the disruption would be “a very dangerous thing”.
For its part, Cinema has argued that Democrats recently used the disruption to make changes to the police reform bill, something that looks very different from the actions of the white nationalist.
“These delays were not attempts to block progress, but to force ongoing negotiations towards better solutions,” she said.
A fellow Democrat from New York, Jamal Bowman, called Cinema a “traitor” to “our democracy.”
Hero: a person respected or exemplary of courage, outstanding achievements or noble qualities.
Traitor: a person who betrays a friend, homeland, principle, etc.
John Lewis is a hero, you are a traitor to his legacy, to your voters, and to our democracy. https://t.co/bS8PW6QwcB
