Congressman says that 'white nationalists used the Jim Crow filibuster to block voting rights legislation'

In his press release, Congressman Mondaire Jones of New York calls himself “a leading voice in the fight to protect the right to vote and save American democracy,” but we’ve never heard of him. He did take to the floor of the House, though, to give a speech in which he claimed it was white nationalists who blocked “voting rights” legislation.


His speech, in part, went like this:

As you just heard, we are living through the worst assault on the right to vote since Jim Crow. And yesterday, on the Senate floor, white nationalists used the Jim Crow filibuster to block voting rights legislation.

But they did not win the contest for the soul of our nation.

I rise to affirm that We, the People, aren’t giving up that easy. We never give up.

We, the People, didn’t give up when, after we finally ended the scourge of slavery in this nation, white nationalists fought back, violently unraveling Reconstruction, throwing duly elected Black people out of office, and barring Black voters from the voting booth for generations.

The worst assault on the right to vote is cutting early voting from 45 days to two weeks?
