Voter ID, Eric Holder and the Increasingly Partisan Nature of ‘Civil Rights’

Posted on | March 12, 2012 | 9 Comments

In case you haven’t figured it out by now, “civil rights” has become a code phrase for “whatever Democrats want,” so that anyone who disagrees with Democrats is said to be “anti-civil rights.” Case in point, the Texas voter ID law:

The Justice Department’s civil rights division on Monday objected to a new photo ID requirement for voters in Texas because many Hispanic voters lack state-issued identification.

Why do Hispanic voters in Texas “lack state-issued identification”?

No drivers license? No passport? Nothing?

Is it cynical — or perhaps even racist — to suggest that many Hispanics in Texas don’t have ID because they are illegal immigrants and, as such, are not actually legal voters? Are Republicans just a bunch of xenophobic bigots for suspecting that Democrats oppose voter ID laws because they hope to use the votes of illegal aliens (or other methods of vote fraud) to elect Democrats?

Isn’t the Justice Department’s entire rationale for opposing the Texas voter ID law an extension of the belief that the partisan interests of the Democratic Party are coterminous with “civil rights”? Democrats actually believe they have the right to win elections, even by blatantly illegal means, and so any measure that might prevent ineligible people from voting is a violation of “civil rights.”

Now you know why “corrupt Democrat” is redundant: No honest person would ever get involved in the Democratic Party.

ADDENDUMDoesn’t this show why “critical race theory” is relevant?

    So the “Justice” Department is saying that legal Hispanic voters are incapable of securing a photo ID in the next 8 months, if they don’t already have one?  Seems like an awful put-down on Hispanics.  If someone said “Anglos don’t know how to get an ID’ I’d certainly be insulted.

    It’s the whole rationale for keeping the Voting Rights Act restrictions on Southern states which is at stake.  There hasn’t been any systematic racial discrimination on voting rights in decades, so DoJ has used stretches of imagination to keep their control with pre-approval of changes.  A favorite is “dilution of minority voting power” which essentially translates into making it harder to elect Democrats to any given office. 

    It doesn’t matter which party is in the White House, as the careerists at DoJ are mostly race pimps anyway, dedicated to enforcing their perverse views of justice on America.   Obama has systematically excluded anyone without a strong belief in Critical Race Theory from any power in the Civil Rights Division.

    Of course, it is idiotic to claim requiring a photo ID is onerous or intimidating when you already have to produce one to drive a car, board an airplane, or buy a pack of cigarettes.

    I really don’t understand the dislike the Democrats have for voter ID requirements. It’s just not that difficult to acquire one. I have seen some people in Arkansas get one in about 5-10 minutes. Surely Texas, or any other state, can do just as well.

    Wait, now I understand why they dislike voter ID so much. They know very well what the results will be, if such a requirement goes into affect. Their voter base would be seriously reduced.

    In that David French post you link to, Stacy, he makes the same mistake so many others on the Right make: namely, as he puts it ‘Law school Obama is not our president, and I’m not sure that the videos tell us much at all about the man who sits in the oval office’.

    In fact, as the evidence is showing [and is increasing in volume], the Obama of college is the same Obama that sits in the Oval Office with one exception: he’s a lot smarter about hiding what a Marxist he really is inside, deep down.

    Yes, this DOES show why CRITICAL RACE THEORY is relevant!

    The “war against women” is a FRAUD, but the “WAR AGAINST TEXAS” is in full force from the Obama Administration.

    I think it’s about time Texas and maybe a few other states sue to overturn their treatment under VRA, since the SCOTUS has already ruled that an almost identical law in Wisconsin is quite in line with the Constitution.

    “Increasingly Partisan!?!?”

    “Civil Rights” have always been completely partisan– occasionally at the beginning on the side of legitimate injustices that required a legal remedy– but mostly for the last several decades as a bludgeon to beat white people with if they fail to go along with the Libtard political program . . .  The sooner conservatives wake up to this the better off the country will be.

    The answer is no, most Texans who are Hispanic have voter ID. Nobody but NOBODY ever checks the numbers. It’s the number of real, valid voters who lack confirmatory ID is likely less than one in 10,000.

    AGW scammers are pikers compared to the folks who make up the allegedly-disenfranchised-minority-voter numbers.
