Holder uses race card against his own race. Isn’t that ironic? Perhaps this will show people who the real racists are.
Excerpt: Monday for Martin Luther King Jr Day, US Attorney General Eric Holder spoke with NAACP leaders on the steps of the statehouse in South Carolina. Holder took the opportunity to tell the audience that he intends to fight against any and all attempts by states to pass laws requiring some form of photo ID.
South Carolina is one of those states in the voter ID fray and Holder told residents,
“After a thorough and fair review, we concluded that the state had failed to meet its burden of proving that the voting change would not have a racially discriminatory affect.”
How is this a racial issue? Is the Attorney General of the United States saying that blacks, Hispanics or American Indians are less capable of obtaining a photo ID than are whites?
If that poor black or Hispanic person needed to buy any over the counter allergy medication that contains pseudoephedrine, they would have to show a driver’s license or some form of ID in order to purchase it. If they have a car, they have to have a state driver’s license AND proof of insurance. If they are that poor and need to receive state or government aid, they have to have some form of ID in order to request and receive that aid. Some form of ID, often a photo ID is required for anyone to fly on a commercial airline, to open a bank account, buy a house, cash a check and the list goes on and on and on.
If Mr Holder does not believe that any of these other ID requirements are racially discriminatory, then on what grounds does he believe requiring a photo ID to vote is a form of racial discrimination?
My question to Eric Holder would be, ‘what makes a poor black or Hispanic person less capable of obtaining a photo ID than a poor white person or a poor Asian person?
Clearly this cannot be the real reason that Holder and the DOJ are fighting against voter ID laws. In light of the revelation of what happened with dead people voting in the New Hampshire primary, the only possible explanation for Holder’s opposition to voter ID has to involve the possibility of widespread voter fraud in the November election. If the Democrats can’t win back the House and keep the Senate and presidency through legal voting methods, that only leaves them desperate measures which could very well include voter fraud.
Could there be any other reason for his Hypocritic actions?
