  • I just saw Catherine Englebrecht being interviewed. I wanted the interviewer just to call her on her racist crap.
  • What a great way to demonstrate your hatred for the US: trying to challenge sacred processes like voting rights.
  • fiver5: FO SHO!

    Yes, it's sad isn't it. Not scary, just sad that people still judge people by the colour of their skin, and the hats on their heads. Mainly the hats I think.
  • There is a Tea bagger group called "True the Vote" that is going to put volunteers at polling locations to challenge ineligible voters.

    I can imagine how untrained tea bag volunteers can identify ineligible voters by sight.
  • Ah, conservatives. No longer bothering to hide their evil. It's like within the past four years they took off the mask and are now just openly farking people in the ass. I assume that fairly isolated stuff designed to disenfranchise voters happened two decades ago. But these days it seems that every other day another story pops up. Yes, I understand that this is a activist group, but what about the actual elected officials trying out new ways to fark with people's god-given rights? Is there simply no shame?

    And don't look me in the eyes and tell me that voter ID laws are motivated by anything other than trying to influence an election. If ID were such big deal as is suddenly is among conservatives, why weren't these laws passed years ago? Why are you only now concerned about a problem that never really existed?

    They have enough momentum and support to do it these days, I guess, and the media are downright unwilling to publicly confront them about it. Since many of them are able to openly identify themselves and others as tea party there is a feeling of safety in numbers.
  • Conservatives benefit from less people voting. Liberals benefit from more people voting. That alone should tell everyone who is on the side of the freedom to choose your own leader, but here we are in 2012 with the GOP still in existence.

    Because they will be arrested after beating the everloving shiat out of any teabagger trying shiat like that.

    /felony assault means you can't vote.
    //I'd spend the night in jail to make sure people can vote like they should be allowed to.

    I'm sure training includes identifying the color brown.
  • If you can win on policy and logic just scream racism.

    Wouldn't it be more proper to call them Republicans? Most true conservatives are disgusted by it and hell, Democrats would be considered conservative in most countries.

    Maybe they can just do what racist groups do and just talke over the voting station.

  • That is a pretty smart move to suppress the vote, you challenge a bunch of people in these swing states with black sounding names or people who have certain addresses and you've got the odds in your favor that you will disenfranchise more democrats than republicans. Democrats should work toward weakening or eliminating the electoral college it's obviously easier to suppress the vote than it is to get out the vote.
  • remember the scene in Repo Man where Otto is reviewing paperwork for monies due to the unscrupulous Helping Hands Acceptance Corporation with an elderly black lady who seems confused about it all? Her many strong young sons happened to pull up in the driveway on their motor scooters and meet Otto for themselves. Yes indeed.

    and I hope some big strong mothers sons go have a talking to whomever is pulling this shiat. it pisses me off to no end that people are so low as to prey on their neighbors and their fellow countrymen. yes, i know that's the way it is. and i don't like it. no sir, i don't like it at all. i wasn't raised that way.

    You're right - I should say conservatives and liberals relative to American politics - Republicans and Democrats, which the rest of the world would call National Front and Conservative, respectively.
  • Racial voter intimidation is republicans are still happening in this century
  • ham-operator: If you can win on policy and logic just scream racism.


    Not sure why anyone needs the latter after winning on policy and logic, or what any of it has to do with unauthorized partisan whacks challenging voters, but I'm pretty sure your explanation will overflow with win.

    Guess someone got sick of all the dead people voting democrat.
  • We need an independent, nonpartisan federal agency with law enforcement powers to regulate elections in this country, down to the local level, "state's rights" be damned.

    interestingly that article you just linked to has the "poll watcher" filing a report with the disfranchisement org this thread is about. Rockford filed her incident report with True the Vote, a Houston-area based national poll watching group
  • Or MAYBE... Concerned citizens are actually trying to stop what many of us consider to be more than just rare occurrences of voter cheating that are taking place in some pockets of the U.S. the fact hat you don't have to be in possession of a valid form of ID to vote still baffles me.
