when did karl rove start a civil rights group?
 
2012-10-11 12:01:07 PM  
Um...no.

Funny how conservatives were opposed to civil rights groups back during the civil rights movement, and they're still opposed to civil rights groups today. Gee, I wonder why.

Shut the fark up, you shameless voter-intimidating cowards.

From what I've been reading with the Voter ID laws is that judges seem to think they are fine but they shouldn't be implemented a month before the election.
 
2012-10-11 12:03:47 PM  
They know voter fraud exists, because conservatives keep doing it. Maybe the solution isn't voter id laws, but rather, outlawing conservative groups.
 
2012-10-11 12:04:37 PM  
No, they haven't.
 
2012-10-11 12:04:38 PM  
Our culture has degraded to the point where stating the truth, the empirical about voter fraud laws, is not met with praise, but rather with threats from lawyers.

So does that mean they'll listen to the stat that voter fraud is less common than getting struck by lightening while having sex... inside your house?

So called 'Conservatives' hate civil rights groups because they hate Civil Rights. Lets be honest.

The only "right" they care about is the 2nd amendment.

I'm betting these signs were only put up in predominately black neighborhoods. If not, I agree, this complaint is stupid.

I'm pretty sure they'll backpedal on that one once they realize it applies to minorities too.

i can't really blame the mods. american thinker, red state, etc are like multi-car crashes at nascar. you know you're horrified each time you see it, but the it's main reason you attend. it's depressing and exciting at the sametime to watch a country slowly burn to the ground, all thanks to the internet's ability to give voice to anyone.

/thanks for destroying the country al gore!

FTA: stigmatize the African-American community by implying that voter fraud is a more significant problem in African American neighborhoods than elsewhere

I'd say your assumption is spot-on.

Damn those people, with all their whining and grousing! "Those billboards are intimidating!" "Why should I have to take a literacy test?" "What do you mean I can't use that water fountain?" "I wanna sit up front!" Don't use that bullwhip on me!"

It's like they think they're real people, like us Americans!

To be fair I hold huge orgies in my house while running huge Van de Graffe generators. So the lightning strikes while having sex in my house are a bit more common. But then again voter fraud is not uncommon in their house http://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/article/Fort-Bend-candidate-vo ted-twice-in-same-3937458.php Though voter id laws wouldn't have helped.

Sadly it wouldn't. Read "Billionaires and Ballot Bandits" by Greg Palast. He's got details on R-on-D, D-on-D, D-on-R, and R-on-R fraud. Sadly.

//anyone who participates in the disenfranchisement of a single vote should lose their right to vote permanently imho.

FTA: " The Plain Dealer reports a region-wide campaign. "

As usual the notion anyone would actually investigate seemed foreign, the 'region-wide campaign' alluded to in the Plain Dealer appears to be the list published here.

Cleveland natives can weigh in but nothing I saw on Google street view suggests neighbourhoods of prosperity and affluence. More like payday loans and taverns:

Carnegie Ave. and E 36th St.
Cedar Ave. NS and E 79th.
Community College Ave and E 35th
E 14th St. and Carnegie Ave.
E 55th St. and N. Carry Ave
E 185th and Harland Ave
Green Rd and S Euclid Ave
Madison Ave and W 93 St
Triskett Rd and W 140th St
W 140th St and Lorain Ave 

Of course, it's been a long time since I was last through Cleveland.

You mean Dixiecrats don't you? GOP voted by a larger percentage than Dems for civil rights laws.

But don't let your blind ignorance slow you down.

Muta: From what I've been reading with the Voter ID laws is that judges seem to think they are fine but they shouldn't be implemented a month before the election.


And I've have only found ONE conservative on FB or Fark who agrees. They seriously don't give a f*ck that they know their state legislatures are doing this to swing the election.

The ones I talk to, after a while, admit that their REAL problem is that white males aren't the only people allowed to be in authority. Anything that helps keep them in power is OK, legal or not.

Note he said conservatives, and not republicans. the conservatives were the solid south democrats, aka the dixiecrats, and indeed, they largely voted against civil rights.

But how can republicans win if brown people are allowed to vote?

Make it easy and free to get IDs and you can have your voter ID laws. Until then, STFU, that shiat's a poll tax.

When voter fraud means having people encouraged to vote that goes against your personal interest, I get that.

/The only real voter fraud going on seems to be done by Republican organizations.

So the sign is intimidating to the GOP. Is the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights now defending the GOP?
