Old hat trick by Rep Beatty by using – defense of our constitutional right to vote. The Democrats are beginning to be the “laughing stock” at the zoo by using their voting rights which are equal to any race in the U.S. Instead, she should be trying to improve her relations with all races.
This shows her lack of intelligence. Just another elected “dumb bunny.” Thirteen percent of the population trying to convenience us they are victims. Can you give us a rest from your ignorance? Time to stop putting “that can of worms” on the shelf and stop selling it to the local fisher persons as bait. The local fish aren’t taking the bait.
Get off of the victim band wagon and go to work as an elected politician doing your job. You want “cheating” rights not “equal” rights.
Rep. Joyce Beatty, D-Ohio, chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus is taken into custody by U.S. Capitol Police officers in the Hart Senate Office Building, after a demonstration supporting voting rights, on Capitol Hill, Thursday, July 15, 2021, in Washington.
Rep. Joyce Beatty, chair of the Congressional Black Caucus and 71-year-old Ohio Democrat, was arrested by US Capitol Police on Thursday afternoon after marching on the Senate Hart Office Building atrium.
Beatty and others—CNN says there were only a dozen—had first gathered outside the Supreme Court building to rally for voting rights.
Once inside the atrium, police warned the group to leave, then arrested first Beatty and then other members of the group.
“Let the people vote. Fight for justice,” Beatty tweeted later alongside images of her arrest. Per the Grio, Vice President Kamala Harris invited the protesters to the White House to discuss voting rights Friday.
The group chanted in favor of the For the People Act, the Democrats’ elections bill looking to push back against Republican attempts to curb voting rights in certain states; it passed the House but GOP senators blocked it in that chamber last month.
They were also marching for the passage of the John Lewis Voting Rights Act. Ultimately, nine protesters including the congresswoman were arrested, the Guardian reports.
“I stand in solidarity with the Black women and allies across the country in defense of our constitutional right to vote,” Beatty said in a statement.
“Be assured that this is just the beginning. This is Our Power, Our Message.” (Beatty was once pepper sprayed while protesting the killing of George Floyd.)
The drummer, Beatty, has hit a sour note.
