Good evening, well it looks like the NAACP1 has gone past it’s shelf life. They have jumped the shark. The fridge has been nuked. What am I talking about? The NAACP, which was once the bastions of crushing racism, has now, for all intents and purposes, become both a joke and a racist organization.
The NAACP has gone to the United Nations to complain that voter ID laws, which require a person to provide some sort of ID that shows they are eligible to vote, are designed to keep minorities from voting.
Here are some of the details from Fox News:
The United Nations Human Rights Council is investigating the issue of American election laws at its gathering on minority rights in Geneva, Switzerland.. This, despite the fact that some members of the council have only in the past several years allowed women to vote, and one member, Saudi Arabia, still bars women from the voting booth completely.
Why are we still bothering with the United Nations? They outlived their usefulness when the Berlin Wall came down. Well I’m sure these idiots in the NAACP have a good reason.
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.
Most of the membership of the UN doesn’t even allow voting and I seem to recall when people protest their current governments, the governments tend to use heavy automatic weapons in response. I don’t think that’s happening here, but the current leadership of the NAACP is not known for a great endowment of brains or common sense. So who will be presenting the case to the UN?
The NAACP had scheduled two American citizens to present their claims at the U.N. panel who, the group says, worry they will be disenfranchised by the requirement to present a photo ID to vote. The civil rights group says one, Kemba Smith Pradia, was convicted of a drug-related offense and is concerned that if she moves back to Virginia from the Midwest, state law will block her voting because of her record, even though she was granted clemency by President Bill Clinton.
Now I can’t speak to the election laws in Virginia. Frankly, this idiot should be talking to a lawyer who understands all this. Since she has admitted she isn’t sure, she really has no standing. Not that the UN cares about that.
A second American, Austin Alex, is a Texas Christian University student. The NAACP says he is worried that he will be barred from voting because he only holds an out-of-state driver’s license and a non-government student ID, not a Texas issued photo ID.
How about this jerk votes in his HOME STATE? The one he lists as his residence? He is the reason Texas and other states are passing these laws. If he wants to vote in Texas, it’s easy. Move there and transfer your residency. Or would that make it hard for you to vote for your hero, Obama, twice?
Now one of the complaints from idiots like this is that it’s to hard for them to get the proper ID.
But supporters of photo ID requirements argue that states provide such identifications for free, and in some cases, voters can cast provisional or absentee ballots that do not even require a photo ID. The NAACP disputes those claims.
Does the NAACP provide any evidence? Nope! Now who will be on this total waste of time and money commission?
The U.N. Human Rights Council members include communist China and Cuba. In addition, several Arab nations are on the council that have only granted the right to vote to women in recent years, such as Kuwait in 2005 and Qatar in 2003. Women in the Republic of Moldova have had the right to vote for less than 20 years.
Council member Saudi Arabia announced six months ago that women will be granted the right to vote, but that change does not go into effect until 2015.
Yep, true supporters of democracy here!
“The idea that this is a human rights abuse is ridiculous,” said Hans von Spakovsky, a voter fraud expert and senior legal fellow at the conservative Heritage Foundation, in Washington, D.C.
“The UN allowing this to take place under their roof makes them, unfortunately, complicit in what really is a publicity stunt by the NAACP, and I think it wastes their time, when they should be going after real and sustained human rights abuses like the things going on in horrible places, like North Korea.”
Spakovsky, who supports voter photo ID laws, says it is a hypocritical and meaningless waste of time to present a case against American electoral laws at the UN forum.
Gee ya think? Of course, most Americans think the UN is a complete waste of time. Just ask the military personnel who responded after the 2004 Christmas Tsunami. They had to divert valuable resources to shuttle around the various commissions and fact finding missions from things like rescuing people and transporting food and medicine. They have little use for those bloated pantywaists.
“I think the leadership of the NAACP is, quite frankly, doing a disservice to American citizens and the democracy that we have here, by going abroad to the Human Rights Council, which is filled with dictatorships and other countries that actually and really abuse human rights.”
The NAACP in it’s current form is nothing more than a bunch of worthless poverty pimps. Even though we have a president who is black, (Albeit utterly incompetent, corrupt and treasonous), not to mention many members of congress, high ranking men and women in the military, they still think it’s 1964. Hey morons! It isn’t! The only people hung up on skin color are idiots like you and other leftists.
Hillary Shelton, the NAACP’s senior vice president for advocacy (Advocacy of what? Free handouts?) argues that the NAACP’s presence at the Geneva conference can teach other nations how to improve their electoral systems.
Ahem. Most of those countries aren’t worried about their electoral systems. They don’t have them in the first place.
“We can learn a lot from those who haven’t gone through as much as we have,” he said.
What a sanctimonious moron. How about he goes over to Syria and show Bashir Assad how he can improve the electoral system in his country. Oh wait! You won’t do that because he would have you SHOT! Hypocritical putz.
Now the NAACP was once a great organization. Back in the 60’s they did great things to right many injustices done to blacks and other minorities. However, they can’t understand that they won. No one really discriminates against someone due to the color of their skin. We’re now moving into the 3rd generation of people who think that looking down on someone simply because of their skin tone is just plain stupid.
These days the only ones hung up on skin color seem to be people who also think that liberals, progressives and statists, (Yes I’m repeating myself again), who do think about skin color are the good people. Those who only care about what you can do and how well you can do it, (This is called “Merit”), are the ones holding so called minorities back.
Think about it. Who are the ones who think that “minorities” can’t get ahead unless the benevolent government makes sure they have special rights? It’s almost always people who support the Democrat party. Which party passed laws that would “Help deprived minorities” but in fact destroyed the black family and has created 3 generations of welfare recipients? Liberal Democrats.2
Now a days, Universities literally go trolling in minority areas, (God I hate that word “Minority when referring to people), looking for people of recent African decent, (As opposed to ancient African decent, Europeans and Asians mostly), and enrolling them in really high pressure schools. Most of these people fail and drop out. If they went to a lower level university, they would get a good education, skills to help them in the job market and the basic grounding to keep learning and improving themselves.
What has the NAACP done to correct THAT injustice? Not one damn thing.
As I said earlier, the NAACP did great things in the past. They fought the good fight. There was injustices that they helped correct. Now, a child of recent African decent CAN look forward and see him or herself as President of the United States.
Unless he’s Herman Cain and rejects the Liberal Progressive orthodoxy that anyone with dark skin is inferior to people of light colored skin and must be helped by his or her “betters.”
The people who want to stop anyone trying to secure the electoral system tend to be liberals, and by that I mean Democrats. The Democratic party has built it’s base on the takers in society. By that I mean they hand out goodies to certain groups in the hope they will vote for Democrats who will continue handing out goodies. The one problem with this is, they people who actually have to PAY for these goodies, (That would be the taxpayers), have had enough and have started voting out the big spending Liberal Democrats.3 These days, about the only way Democrats can win is to cheat.
This started in 2000 when Al Gore and the Democrats tried to suppress votes from Military personnel who tended not to vote for Democrats. In Chicago, they have a long history of dead people voting for Democrats. This is why people are starting to ask that the voting be limited to those actually entitled to vote. That would be U.S. Citizens and the living.
My family is a rainbow. Mrs. Webmaster is Chinese. (She will proudly say she is Han Chinese) The Angry Brother in-law is Puerto Rican. I was shopping the other day and saw a mother with her two daughters. She was Caucasian and her daughters were dark skinned. I could see their father was of recent African decent. Do you know what my first thought was? I doubt it.
My thought, when I saw the girls, was “I sure hope dad has a shotgun because those daughters are going to be beating off the boys with a stick!”
I have no use for racists of any color. Period, End of sentence.
That is all
