Any impact segment tonight the politics of fear.
Over the last three days speakers of the Democratic Convention made some pretty extreme claims about the Republican Party.
And falling into that category are remarks by actress Kerry Washington who -- in a prime time address last night.
-- -- There are people out there trying to take away rights that our mothers.
And Howard great grandmothers spot for.
We thought our -- right boat.
How are right 6 June.
How are right -- popcorn and milk quality education.
That -- out there and me that -- well.
-- Republicans trying to take away a woman's right to vote while all that's an estimate joining me now from LA politics and race commentator.
Okay -- I don't -- Kerry Washington fan or not but.
I had -- now now Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are actually.
Gonna show up at the polls and bar the door so women actually cannot vote -- -- maybe you're gone a little.
Extreme hero with some of these charges.
Think the Democratic Party is thing where they need to do to fire is based you know our -- -- Ryan might not be the winds actually.
You know at the door -- bit.
Their folks may be that they -- there and there's a legitimate issues when it comes to.
Good effect of their folks I'm I just want clarity on this I think this is it really serious a charge and -- -- -- I'm actually offended.
About the fact that Kerry Washington would -- it is I don't know Kerry Washington she could be -- lovely person.
But when you're saying that Republican candidates are trying to stop.
Women from voting stopped them from getting health care stop them from getting educated that sounds a little bit like the Taliban not like.
The Republican Party that I'm a part -- so I'd like to know some examples of where they're trying to do any of these things.
OK -- Let's look at Ohio and Pennsylvania let's look at the voter IV.
A lot but have been going through the -- to -- that is bash wrongly supported by you know the governors in the Republican party's of those states that's -- -- ID when you about.
Showing -- about.
Yes I have no idea it yet and at the convention so.
Ripped a shot I didn't hear Obama speak but we don't have a flat -- ID to vote for Obama I'll bet.
Now I don't I want to belabor the point but that point she's such she's someone -- who made these charges and the question -- The country is really hurting now right and that Democrats decided to go you know whole hog on on.
-- -- Mitt Romney does apparently doesn't want you to use contraception because he's gonna block access to contraception which is -- a verifiable lie nobody is trying to stop women from using contraception.
And -- thank you -- would probably say that if Mitt Romney were elected.
What women wouldn't get abortions and women wouldn't have contraception you don't believe that deal.
-- I think that under our -- the administration N.
It might be a little bit harder I've actually scared to live under Romney administration.
And I I actually have on the L -- I was when -- -- -- them.
You know -- all of the above you know.
To -- Shin-Soo.
Whether or not people have access the quality health care have access to quality education.
Have access to -- the inclement obsessed you know you think public schools are gonna at aren't gonna ceased to exist.
If Mitt Romney -- president LR or you think that large when you.
Don't know what I don't like when I get an abortion no I don't I I final language frankly to be sloppy.
And and I think you're better than that you're better than that if -- -- substantive argument about Mitt Romney's policies that's fine but to say.
-- stopping women from all boarding or having using contraceptive devices is ridiculous what he wants to do is is probably.
Not force -- religious institutions like Catholic universities to have to give aboard a patient drugs or sterilization procedures as part of the health care plan.
That's -- religious liberty question.
That but it's not -- says it's about who -- its commitment thanks and sorry that.
It's okay go back to -- watch that he's going.
Accident took over the speeches you now I -- Kerry Washington I think that she.
Was sort of given her marching orders on what to go out there and say and she did -- -- she brought it home.
Does -- work sometimes it does sometimes you have to do which need to do to get your base out to vote.
-- some of -- earlier in the weather does not has yet not.
No I don't think she was despondent at all I think she -- Berry and poignant point these are serious issues that the Democrat -- And yet addressed them seriously she dressed like she dressed up like some maybe not -- you didn't pay really don't people's outlines.
On -- Carter teleprompter and I -- god bless serve I mean that's just they're responsible -- -- may not fine.
