Activists Are NOT Buying Biden’s Voting Rights Rhetoric

Voting rights activists and Biden allies have decided to boycott Biden’s voting rights and filibuster reform speech in Atlanta, Georgia. Activist Cliff Albright voiced his frustrations with the Biden Administration for their inaction on voting rights and did not want to be used as a “prop” by Biden. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian discuss on The Young Turks. Watch LIVE weekdays 6-8 pm ET. Read more HERE: "President Joe Biden, in a speech Tuesday in Atlanta, will directly challenge the “institution of the United States Senate” to support voting rights by backing two major pieces of legislation and the carving out of an exception to the Senate’s 60-vote requirement. Coming a week before Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Biden’s speech at the Atlanta University Center Consortium on Tuesday afternoon will serve as a follow-up to a speech he delivered last week on the first anniversary of the U.S. Capitol riot. He will argue that the two pieces of legislation ― the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act ― are critical to ensure that the turmoil of Jan. 6, 2021, leads to a revival of American democracy rather than its decline. “The next few days, when these bills come to a vote, will mark a turning point in this nation,” Biden will say, according to prepared remarks distributed by the White House. “Will we choose democracy over autocracy, light over shadow, justice over injustice? I know where I stand. I will not yield. I will not flinch. I will defend your right to vote and our democracy against all enemies foreign and domestic. And so the question is: Where will the institution of the United States Senate stand?”" *** The largest online progressive news show in the world. Hosted by Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian.
