Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) spoke with Newsmax about the recent filibuster vote and the Democrats’ “big lie” when it comes to voter suppression.
“There is no suppression of the vote in our country,” the Kentucky Republican argued on Newsmax’s “National Report.” “We should be thankful for that.”
“[They] want to change the law so people don’t have to show identification to vote by mail so they can harvest the ballots of Democrats at the expense of the rest of the public,” said Paul. “It’s all about power politics, and it’s shameless.”
Biden, he added, “stirs the racial tensions and encourages sort of racial animosity by saying that someone is preventing people to vote because of the color of their skin,” and that is “a lie. It is also is dangerous to the country because he’s sort of urging people to say, ‘oh my goodness, it’s not legitimate. You can’t vote.’”
Paul mentions the Supreme Court reviewed voting rights in the south.
“They found that African-Americans voted in a percentage equal to [that of] whites or higher than whites in Alabama, Mississippi, or South Carolina,” said Paul. “In 2020 more people voted than have ever voted as far as a percentage of our population, so everything they’re saying is a lie.”
