In the latest episode of "The Dinesh D'Souza Podcast," conservative commentator Dinesh D'Souza responded to President Joe Biden's divisive "voting rights" speech in Georgia by pointing out the Democratic Party's segregationist history.
D'Souza argued that Biden's "voter rights" agenda has the same result of suppression despite the opposition in approach taken. Further, he found it ironic how Democrats were the segregationists and not the right-wingers that Biden spoke about during the sppeech in Atlanta earlier this week.
The podcaster went over the situation in a clip posted on Friday morning.
"Joe Biden ominously warns about 'segregationists' without mentioning that some of them were his good buddies and virtually all of them were members of the Democratic Party," the conservative icon tweeted, posting the video.
When it came to "Biden railing about segregation," D'Souza's main argument was how the segregationists highlighted were Democrats, despite the president's implication that they were Republicans instead.
D'Souza called out how Biden earlier in his career knew George Wallace fairly well. "He worked with them; he found common cause with them," the podcaster asserted. A National Review piece exploring this topic further backed that up.
"So Democrats have been the party of voter suppression, and I want to argue that they're doing it now. They haven't stopped doing voter suppression; just their mechanism of voter suppression is different," D'Souza continued.
D'Souza went over the history of the Democrat Party when it came to imposing poll taxes or using the Ku Klux Klan as a mechanism of fear to prevent black Americans from voting. But when it comes to modern times, Democrats "new strategy is in a sense to try to make it easy for people to vote unlawfully, and thus cancel out legal votes," D'Souza said, adding: "If legal aliens or illegal aliens vote, if underaged students vote, if ineligible felons vote, if persons who moved out of state vote, all of these people are canceling out lawful votes."
D’Souza asked the audience how many times progressives have trotted out actual cases of minorities or poor people being prevented from voting.
Then he highlighted the response by the Washington Post's Jennifer Rubin, who placed Democrat holdouts Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema in the crosshairs for their choice to standby keeping the US Senate filibuster in place.
He called Rubin "slavish in her devotion" to the Biden administration's agenda. "A battered wife who keeps coming back for more." D'Souza explained how it's perfectly appropriate for both Democrat senators to be "responsive" to the constituents who elected them in the first place.
D'Souza mentioned how Biden's approval rating hit a low of 33 percent according to a Quinnipiac University poll this week. While the White House responded to these particular numbers as being an "outlier," a similar trajectory of decline was seen by RealClearPolitics data.
"He's trying to change the Senate rules," D'Souza concluded about Biden's actions earlier this week, specifically when the president met with the Senate Democratic Caucus luncheon. He emerged from that meeting expressing defeat about hopes of passing his voting bill agenda.
