MSNBC Contributor Graphically Compares Voter ID Laws to Strangling a Baby

We’ve seen the Democrats and their sock-puppet media come up with some pretty disgusting metaphors in their attacks against Republicans, in recent years, from the inevitable comparisons to Hitler and the Nazis, slavery, Jim Crow laws, “white supremacy,” “systemic racism,” and other such nonsense.


But on Friday, a frequent MSNBC guest and contributor took home the “Disgusting Democrat” trophy in a walk. By comparing voter ID laws to strangling a baby. As graphically as possible. With a big ol’ helping of “white supremacy” thrown in, just for “good” measure. As transcribed by NewsBusters:

[T]he umbilical cord of white supremacy has been wrapped around the baby’s neck, choking the life out of it.

How lovely. Imagine the self-created bitterness in this guy that causes him to eagerly spew such bile. “This guy,” being Eddie Glaude, the “James S. McDonnell Distinguished University Professor of African American Studies at Princeton University, where he is also the Chair of the Center for African American Studies and the Chair of the Department of African American Studies.”

So, let’s first back up the bus, a bit.

As NewsBusters reported, MSNBC’s “The 11th Hour” host Stephanie Ruhle, on Friday, kicked off the ridiculous festivities by bringing up Texas voter ID laws and Juneteenth.

Eddie, what does it say that Texas, where we are going to see huge voter drives this weekend, the place where Juneteenth was born is the same state that has these huge restrictive voting laws?


Not a left-wing set-up question, at all. Glaude went hyperbolic, right out of the chute (emphasis, mine):

It says how deeply tragic and flawed this experiment actually is. […] It’s certainly the case to me and to my mind — there’s that contradiction in Texas [that] suggests that there’s a world that’s desperately trying to — an America that’s desperately trying to come into being and an America that’s clinging to life.

And every time a new America has tried to come into existence, Stephanie, the umbilical cord of white supremacy has been wrapped around the baby’s neck choking the life out of it.

We have to be better midwives if a new America is to be born because what we’re experiencing now is an old — an old and familiar haunt, and we have to acknowledge it as such.

Oh, please, man. We’re simply talking about proving you’re who you say you are before you vote. You know, just like any number of other times we must provide ID in order to do any number of other things. And that’s racist, how? If anything, his argument is racist against people of color. Is ID too difficult to obtain? Is it unfair to some people, but not to others? The premise is utterly ridiculous and it is time to call it what it is.


I’ve said it a million times and I’ll no doubt say it a million times in the future: Democrats do not want to make it easier to vote; Democrats want to make it easier to cheat. That is the bottom line.

Besides, “distinguished” professor, it’s not Republicans who adamantly support killing babies in the womb — until birth — by umbilical cord strangulation or otherwise. How about you use a less ironic metaphor?
