Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz fired back at MSNBC host Joy Reid Wednesday after she suggested that his party was “literally Jim Crow.”

Reid suggested Tuesday night that Cruz was going against the interests of his own race by opposing the proposed bill H.R. 1, also called the For The People Act, which is a sweeping Democratic bill related to federal election laws, voter eligibility, social media and more.

The article goes on to state the following:

Reid also compared Cruz to the character “Stephen” from the 2012 film “Django Unchained,” a traitorous house slave who joins his master to terrorize other slaves.

“Ted Cruz says a lot of stupid things. He does a lot of stupid things,” Reid said.

“I personally… as a black person, am beyond offended that he would dare use the word ‘Jim Crow’ when his party is literally a ‘Jim Crow’ party at this point,” she said.

Reid is referring to a statement from Cruz about the For The Peoples Act. Cruz called it “Jim Crow 2.0.”

“Ted Cruz could give a damn about Jim Crow,” Reid continued. “He’s never raised once concern ever in his entire life, that I’ve ever heard, about Jim Crow or racism or discrimination.”

Cruz tweeted his fiery response to Reid Wednesday saying, “I appreciate MSNBC lecturing me on how people of ‘my race’ are supposed to vote. This arrogant condescension is a big reason Hispanic voters are moving right in large numbers. Also, why is MSNBC ok with their hosts using overt racial slurs (‘Stephen from Django’)?”

  1. If you can’t understand that having to have an I’d to vote is NOT RACIST then you need some kind of counseling.! Just another frigging attempt by democrats to push the race card to try to grab power over election. Blacks& Hispanics should be insulted that the democrats think they are so stupid they don’t know how to put a ballot in the mail box, know their address or how to get a state issued ID that you are required to show for basically just about everything you have to do in life. I guess that’s why biden said if you don’t vote for me you ain’t black. Because they think you are a stupid. The democrat party is the racist party there is & are so scared of the republicans it’s almost laughable. Except they are hell bent on destroying America and start a race war
