MSNBC host Joy Reid has accused Republicans of being the same as the Dixiecrat segregationist political party.

The host claims that Republicans oppose “everything Dr. King fought for."

“Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a day when people who would have stood four-square against everything Dr. King fought for — equal rights, civil rights, the elimination of poverty, and especially voting rights — soberly repeat that one partial quote they memorized in high school," she said.

Reid went on to share tweets from Govs. Greg Abbott (R-TX) and Glenn Youngkin (R-VA), Reps. Nancy Mace (R-SC) and Tom McClintock (R-CA), Sens. Tom Cotton (R-AR), Rand Paul (R-KY) and Marco Rubio (R-FL), quoting Dr. King.

“Which brings us to the need to confront yet another big lie," Reid said.

"Republicans who are attacking voting rights like to claim that well nobody is being prevented from voting.”

Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said from the Senate floor:

“Leading Democrats said they want to break the Senate because of an anti-voting plot that is sweeping America."

"Of course, this is totally fake. It does not exist.”

Reid continued:

“You know, funny enough, that is exactly what the old version of the Dixiecrats said, back during the 1950s and ‘60s," she said.

"‘Oh, no one is being prevented from voting," she added.

"You just have to tell us how many jelly beans are in this jar, and you can vote."

"Just read this complicated passage, and you can totally vote," Reid said.

"Now, of course, we’re going to make sure your schools are awful, and you've barely even taught to read, let alone anything like this passage, but no one is keeping you from voting.’"

"The more Dixiecrats, interpositionists, and nullificationists change, the more they stay the same.”
