Voter Suppression

Recommended Posts

This is nuts. The guy running for governor, Kemp, happens to be the guy who has control over voter registration. That, in itself, seems like a conflict of interest. At the same time, there are 53,000 voter registrations listed as "pending," and 70 percent of those 53,000 people are African-American. Kemp's opponent is an African-American woman.

On the Dodger / Braves game the other day, for some reason, they ran an ad for this race from the woman running. They didn't reveal that it was for the Georgia governors race until the very end, but I could sense the south all over that ad from the moment it came on.

This is one of the older plays in the GOP playbook.  Nothing new. 

I know that "both sides do it" is a legitimate comeback most of the time, but I'm wondering if there are any cases of voter suppression against people who would normally vote Republican.

Other than letting Lou’s family vote, I’m not sure how much Dems play voting games.  Gerrymandering and voter suppression are all set up for the Republicans benefits.

It isnt even about the both sides do it line at this point, its that one side doesnt get held accountable for it.  
1500 Illegals get registered by the DMV in CA.. i notice no threads about it.  No outrage.  No concern.  Nothing... even though this is excatly what many predicted would happen and were told they were morons.  
The double standards are what kills my support for the left.

I didn't know about that until now. I don't think that's OK, either.

These are two different problems, though. One involves the historical, systemic suppression of black voters, the other is giving the vote to people who shouldn't be able to vote. I highly doubt 1,500 illegals voting will turn the tide of any election in California.

But dont you think thats a problem, that you didnt know about it ?  The one sided media creates an abundance of awareness on one side and none when it doesnt fit thier agenda. 
Yes, historic systematic issues are a problem, but they arent racial, they are partisan.  Its easy to say they are or arent racial since everything seems to be of late but the reality here is that its about party, not race.   Voter suppression, false voting, are as old as elections themselves.  Chicago is notorious for it historically but that wasnt racial till someone decided it should be to rile the base.   Identity politics will be our downfall.   Election and partys dont give a rats ass what color you are.

So I looked this up.

It was a clerical error that has been corrected.  All those people are in the country legally, they just aren't citizens.

But it's still just as bad as voter suppression in Georgia!
