MSNBC reporter warns Republicans in state legislatures that pass voting laws are “on January 6 every day”

As the anniversary of the Capitol Riots approaches, recently hired NBC News reporter Yamiche Alcindor has claimed that Republicans in state legislatures passing vote reform bills are a January 6 that all happens. the days to local Americans.

On Tuesday, Alcindor appeared with MSNBC host Nicole Wallace on “Deadline: White House” to discuss the ongoing investigations into the January 6 riot on Capitol Hill. While these investigations are limited to actions on Capitol Hill, Alcindor appeared to link them to Republicans refusing to pass Democrats’ voting rights legislation.

“And is there a way to try at some point to really, I think, avoid what is becoming increasingly clear, a Republican Party that is going to focus more on making sure that the Republicans are elected by any means necessary and not in any way watch how can we, as a society, work together to have fair election laws, ”Alcindor said.

Alcindor further asserted that the voting laws passed by Republican state-level lawmakers are just efforts to ensure they can “install people” rather than secure an election.

“When I talk to Republicans, Republican voters, they’re very interested in just trying to find people loyal to the Trump brand who are going to try to find a way to change the voting laws in this country to make sure Republicans win rather than win the vote, they’re basically trying to make sure that they can just insure, they can install people and that’s how democracies die. When I talk to experts, when I talk to of the immigrants who came to America, I hope for a more stable democracy, ”explained Alcindor.

Wallace agreed with Alcindor’s point of view denouncing “400 laws that have been put in place in 48 states to cancel access to the ballot box.”

“[M]Most pundits agree that the parts of these bills that give Donald Trump’s cronies the power to overturn the vote are more alarming, “Wallace replied.

Alcindor even went further, declaring that the election laws passed by Republicans amounted to “a January 6 that happens every day at the local level”.

“I mean, if you talk to experts who have seen and studied democracy for decades, that’s what they’d say. They’d say it’s a paradigm that needs to change. And that America needs to understand. that it’s a January 6 happening every day at the local level that is slowly tearing our democracy apart, ”Alcindor said.

Alcindor’s comments echo a New York Times Editorial Board article titled “Every day is January 6 now.”

“In short, the Republic faces an existential threat from a movement which openly despises democracy and has shown it is ready to use violence to achieve its ends,” the editors wrote. “No autonomous society can survive such a threat by denying its existence. On the contrary, survival depends on looking back and forward at the same time.”
