The daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Dr. Bernice King, disagrees with the majority of Democrats on whether or not to remove the long-standing Senate filibuster rule, according to Fox News.
She told MSNBC’s Joy Reid, who strongly criticizes the filibuster, that it was possible for the rule to “be used appropriately,” and that she understood “not getting rid of it.” She added, “You know, I have agonized about this over and over and over again because I know it’s a difficult place… In some regards the filibuster can be used appropriately, but in other regards, such as now, it’s used inappropriately. So I understand the difficulty in coming to a decision to kind of do that nuclear option and get rid of it,” she continued. “But we’re dealing with something so dire that, to me, can really break our democracy.”
Using a clip of Martin Luther King Jr. talking about the filibuster in 1963, Joy Reid and daughter Dr. Bernice King give away the game.
Watch as King ADMITS that, when the filibuster is "used appropriately" to advance certain causes, it's not at all racist. pic.twitter.com/8Lq7ZU7Nrt

NEXT STORY: Celebrity ‘Pitbull’ Roasts World Leaders Over Lack Of Support For Protesters in Cuba: ‘Get With The Motherf***ing Program’
Celebrity rapper Pitbull posted a video to social media telling world leaders to immediately act to save the lives of pro-freedom demonstrators in Cuba, Daily Wire reports.
Pitbull said, “This is a message to the world. We need to stand up, step up. But if you don’t understand what’s going on, then you need to wake the f*** up. Not only is this a Cuba event, a Cuba thing, this is a world event. This isn’t about politics. This is about saving lives. This is about unity, not division. And bottom line it’s about taking action. Let me tell you something, why I’m frustrated and when I see everybody out there and doing what they’re doing, which I love what they’re doing. Okay, because not only do we live for freedom, we ride for freedom, we die for freedom, but we motherf***ing appreciate freedom.”
He continued, “And it gets me hat bothers me and it frustrates me to a certain extent, being a Cuban American, and having a platform to speak to the world and not being able to help my own people, not being able to get them food, not being able to get them water, not being able to get the medicine. But most of all, not being able to help and really get them what they deserve, which is freedom. And this is my way of talking to the world. All world’s allies get together to help. Global businesses get together to help. People that we’re so proud of, people such as a Jeff Bezos, a Cuban American, graduated from high school in Miami, built one of the biggest companies in the world, the richest man in the world. He’s somebody that can get involved and really help us and what we got. All we can do is create awareness, but politics are gonna be polititricks.”
“And while they figure out what they figure out, we need to figure out how to really help,” he said. “We need to get creative, we need to figure out solutions while they’re losing their lives over there literally for something that we wake up every day and appreciate, which is freedom. So to everybody out there, stand up, step up. And if you don’t understand, get with the motherf***ing program and wake up because this is about freedom and it’s about human rights. And everybody in Cuba keep the fight up.”

NEXT STORY: Dem Lawmaker Who Fled State Tests Positive for COVID, Now He Wants Biden to Institute a Nationwide Indoor Mask Mandate
Three of the Texas Democratic have reportedly tested positive for coronavirus after fleeing Texas to protest an elections integrity bill, according to Western Journal.
Now one Democratic Texas legislator, Rep. Gene Wu, has taken to Twitter to demand a national mask mandate. He wrote, “I assume that everyone ‘whistling past the graveyard’ and laughing about Democratic members testing positive have already been fully vaccinated and have no complaints about mandatory masking provisions again.” He continued, “Thank you for all the comments concerning masking. I’ll forward your request to Congress and the White House to ask that we reinstitute a national masking requirement.”
I feel ashamed.
You're right, I should have been wearing a mask indoors.
I will personally ask VP Harris and President Biden to institute a nationwide mask mandate for all indoor activities.
Thank you. You made this possible. https://t.co/MIsvtHSfOF
