Republicans are the crazy, out of control party members who rant on television, right? Not in this video.
Democrat Steve Cohen melts down after a GOP witness exposed Democrats on election integrity. The first black Lt Governor of North Carolina Mark Robinson tells Cohen, “stop using me as a black man as your pawn.” Robinson is tired of Democrats calling voter ID laws racist.
Robinson added, “It happened a long time ago in this country and I’m tired of it.” Robinson hits the nail on the head when he says Democrats narrative that voter ID are racist its insulting to black people because it infers they are too dumb to get an ID or worse are so backwoods that they don’t have ID’s already.
Robinson deals the final blow to the Democrat in charge of the hearing when he tells Cohen, “This is a great way to run a hearing. Impressive!”
Cohen has a complete melt down at that point. He’s just been called out for using racism to further his agenda. Robinson rightly points out that its Democrats who are the racists, not Republicans.
We understand when a person on the street becomes upset and resorts to childish behavior. However, we tend to expect more from our elected representatives.
They are to represent the people they serve, not attack their fellow public servants. Cohen’s race card comments don’t even relate to the conversation; they simply show what happens when someone one the left doesn’t get their way.
Election integrity is important, but requiring a photo ID has nothing to do with segregation or discrimination. If an American can show photo ID to board a plane, check out a book from the library, buy a beer, pick up tickets to a game, or get the vaccine, a citizen can show proof of ID to vote.
It’s not that controversial. All Cohen has to do is reach in his pocket and pull it out of his wallet. Watch Cohen’s melt down for yourself. His behavior is disgraceful.
