You'll never hear this kind of language on Meet the Press.
Ned Staebler, a Wayne County Board Member of Canvassers, called out BY NAME the two election officials who last night tried to erase the votes of Black people in Detroit by refusing to certify the vote in Wayne County. After hours of outrage and turmoil (and a sure sense that the Democratic governor and Secretary of State were going to have none of this) the two relented and certified the vote after all.
These two racists are William Hartman and Monica Palmer. Say THEIR names. Ned Staebler did.
After pointing out that the two Republicans were objecting to the Black district vote but not white district votes which had more discrepancies, Staebler named names and said the word "racist."
And THIS, my friends, is how you talk about Republicans when they suppress the Black vote, which they always do:
Republicans alone suppress the Black vote. Both sides don't. And news outlets that push the "both sides" myth are engaged in endorsing and coddling White Nationalism. The end.
