It should go without saying that liberals are quite pissed about the Senate GOP’s successful filibuster of the For the People Act. But some of them are taking their outrage a little too far.
People like Mark Thompson, who had this to contribute to the conversation on MSNBC last night:
MSNBC guest, reacting to the failure of the corrupt For the People Act, says "this is a holdover from really the time of enslavement," and likens the bill's failure to "apartheid."

Thompson is also known for being a panelist on “The Young Turks,” so you’d expect him to have lots of scorching-hot political takes. But geez. Apartheid? Come on, man.
When all you have is a hammer…….

Everything I don’t like is apartheid

That’s essentially what Democrats’ and the Left’s argument boils down to.

No, that was different. Because Democrats got what they wanted.
Meanwhile, it’s interesting to watch host Ari Melber just sit there and accept Thompson’s insanity without question. While Sheldon Whitehouse is taking up most of the screen, no less.
Is that the white dude who’s part of the all white beach crew? Cool.

Absolutely love that the video they are showing is of White Supremacist and Segregationist Sheldon Whitehouse, lol.

The irony of him talking about minorities and apartheid with the screen playing Whitehouse who defends his tradition old age, his wife partially owns, only white people allowed country club. 🙄🤦🏼♀️
