I’ve given up on the West, as you know. Here’s more confirmation of that view. American “Colored People”–Hey, don’t blame me, I didn’t name the NAACP–are teaming up with the United Nations against the rest of America.
Officials from the NAACP are presenting their case against U.S. voter ID laws, arguing to the international diplomats that the requirements disenfranchise voters and suppress the minority vote.
They turned to the U.N. You know, an organization in which tyrannical governments vote in the affairs of democratic nations. Half those regimes don’t allow their citizens to vote at all…and Americans ask them to sit in judgement of their fellow Americans??
I’ve never held with the “love it or leave it” argument over America. Nothing wrong with concentrating more on what’s done wrong than what’s done right. In fact, you need some people doing that. But going to the U.N. over voting rights is like going to Hannibal Lecter for a vegetarian dinner. Like asking the Pope for advice on spreading atheism.
It’s like asking a freedom-loving American to betray liberty.
So screw you, NAACP. Move to Iran if you want to see how much better voting is over there. You don’t have to “love it or leave it”…but if you don’t even like America more than the U.N., well…don’t let the door hit you on the way out.
Don’t you love the way they brought two “American citizens to present their claims”? These are people who have suffered nothing more than the “worry they will be disenfranchised by the requirement to present a photo ID to vote”? It is important to note they both have ID, but apparently can’t be bothered to ask if they actually would be “disenfranchised” somehow. (I wonder if they used the ID to get on the plane on the way over there?) But, boy, are they “worried”, so they want the NAACP to get the UN to do something about it?
Dear NAACP, please note that the UN doesn’t do much about actual deaths and such, so I suspect any response over “worries” may just be a political stunt. Oh, yeah, I guess you folks at NAACP know all about political stunts, don’t you?
Hmmm, I wonder how the NAACP would go for the “purple finger” ID used in some countries?
Can you tell I feel a wee bit sarcastic about this stuff? 🙂
Good points. They put in ten times more effort at whining about IDs than it takes to get one.
If you’re against IDs at polls, you support voting fraud, simple as that.
It’s a law over here to have an ID for voting. And it’s working.
