Dean Obeidallah: Legendary Black radio host Joe Madison is two weeks into a hunger strike that could become a risk to his health. Madison, 72, is doing it for one reason: To pressure President Joe Biden and Democrats in Congress to pass voting rights legislation as the GOP actively works to restrict ballot access.

It is very telling that Libs never talk about protecting the integrity of the votes. It's always about protecting the ability for people to vote. BOTH of those are incredibly important. And since almost every piece of legislation put forth by the specific states doesn't prevent anyone from voting or remove any protections of them voting, it's very easy to see what this whole argument is about...and it's not about protecting everyone's votes, it's about making sure those who will vote for Dems have the easiest possible avenue of voting regardless of how it decreases the integrity of the votes themselves.

Come again? Who wanted to put more money into just that and who refused? Time and again who is caught willfully breaking the law on voting? Don't confuse your Rs and Ds.

Also protecting the ability of people to vote is protecting in my mind a sacred right in this country. Every person who was not a land owner had to fight for that right. Black people had to fight for that right beyond that. Women were the last to earn that right. These are rights enshrined in the Constitution of the United States.

The fact you and your ilk babble on about the inegrity of the vote and time and again it is ONLY right wingers who are busted and convicted for outright open, blatant and wilful crime and abuses of the vote says a lot.

Hum,

It's about the protecting the ability of dems to do vote harvesting.

They want the ability to gather votes of people who don't vote, have never voted and would never vote and of course...."check right here where I'm showing you".

That sounds a fair way to run an election.

Bill Johnson you are full of smelly brown stuff. You know absolutely nothing about voting. You just run your mouth thinking that you do.

It's cheating.

Because libs worry about things that are real problems. Like climate change and fascists.

Your stupid cult worries about the integrity of the vote - something that's not a problem under the current system. The only problem with the current system is you lose if more people vote because most people hate your agenda, so youre obsessed with finding ways to stop people from voting, and worrying about "the integrity of the votes" is just your cover story.

Unless you're just a moron who consumes propaganda and actually believes there is a problem with the integrity of the votes right now.

Bill Johnson nothing that your right winger leaders say happens with regards voting happens. You are delusional. Sorry for being the bearer of bad news.

Yeah you can tell by the way progressives are sending death threats to local election officials and replacing them with loyalists who will overturn any election they lose.

That's progressives right?

Oh for goodness sake.

Fascism: an authoritarian and nationalistic right-wing system of government and social organization.

Fascist: an advocate or follower of the political philosophy or system of fascism: he went to Spain to fight against the fascists | Eastern European fascists could win power only with support from the Nazis.

SpeakSoftly is correct in his use and context.

BillJohnson, you don't need to worry about that.

You've been living a lie ever since you discovered you're attracted to men.

Your life is already hell.

My point stands that leftists today would be just as authoritarian given the chance.

"leftists today would be just as authoritarian given the chance."

Like when Obama had the House and Senate and... checks notes... expanded access to health care.
