Back in 2016 Fox News reporter Ami Horowitz filed an excellent digital short on whether voter ID laws supress the “black vote”. With liberals desperate to prevent then republican presidential nominee Donald J Trump from winning the election, all of a sudden the issue of voter ID became a controversy.
What’s brilliant about Horowitz’ report is that he sets it up with a to-the-point question: Do voter ID laws supress the black vote?
Of course to the ‘enlightened’ so-called white progressives, voter ID laws are extremely racist. No big surprises there. What truly exposes the heart and mind of the typical liberal is their respective responses to the question: What makes voter ID laws racist and oppressive to ‘blacks’?
“Because they’re less likely to have state IDs” said one shades wearing sympathiser of ‘the black man’s plight’.
It gets better.
Another bleeding heart lefty liberal, (who by no means is racist), declared with utmost sincerity: “These type of people don’t live in areas with easy access to DMVs or other places where you can get identification.” (What does he mean, these type of people?“
Horowitz then put it to those being interviewed, that there are online avenues for “blacks” to gain ID. This cut at the knees, the ludicrous notion there’s no easy access to IDs for “blacks”.
So another progressive, non-racist, lover of so-called black people declared, filled with the knowledge she was 1000% on the ball with her assessment: “Well I feel like they don’t have the knowledge of how it works.”
I was wiping the tears away at this point, I was laughing so hard. So these are the people I’m supposed to believe aren’t racist or prejudiced in any way? They sing kumbaya and throw pity parties for ‘blacks’ and we’re supposed to swoon I guess.
(Unfortunately many so-called blacks do get taken in by the free stuff and paper thin acceptance offered them by these progressives.)
And just to address this notion that ‘blacks’ are incapable of acquiring identification, for whatever lame reason; in St Lucia, a majority so-called black country, we have passports, drivers licences and yes, even ID cards! We even need them to vote! Can you believe that? Just so racist!
Too bad our ‘Afro-American’ counterparts are somehow incapable of acquiring IDs, without feeling oppressed by the “white man”; (just going by how these progressives tell it)
Their responses for some reason reminded of a notorious saying attributed to a president widely perceived as a big friend to ‘blacks’ and their march to attain so-called equality, with the overly obsessed-over “white” man.
“I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” said Lyndon B. Johnson to two governors on Air Force One.
“I had never heard the above quote from Ronald Kessler’s book, Inside the White House before but my father had told me about LBJ’s terrible mouth and frightful personality.” Wrote Huffington post contributor, The Relentless Conservative back in 2011.
“If you listen to Democrats” he said to the notoriously liberal readers of the Huffington Post, “(many of you do — at least those who watch MSNBC and read the NY Times rabidly), you hear fanciful yarns spun so sweetly about how LBJ ended racism, segregation and voting inequality in America. They make him sound like Mr. Rogers.” wrote Relentless Conservative.
“How long will the Democrats continue their absurd charade?” he asked, “claiming Republicans are racist, while the Democrats are the party clearly responsible for the contemptible Jim Crow laws.”
And although he should have addressed the above question to so-called blacks specifically, Relentless Conservative was right in this assessment. “LBJ was an awful man. He only promoted and signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the 1965 Voting Rights Act because he thought it was politically expedient.”
“These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days” said LBJ once, “and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.”
Like allowing them to think that it’s ok to vote without proper identification; which in turn dilutes their potency at the ballot box, given that most illegal immigrants aren’t so-called black. Talk about putting large groups of people back in chains, right Uncle Joe?
If illegal immigration continues unabated in the States, the now highly treasured ‘black’ vote’ will soon become obsolete.
