Democrats tend to have a very selective reverence for voting. For example, one of the first acts of the Obama Department of Justice was to drop charges for a group of Black Panthers who stood outside a voting station in Philadelphia in 2008 with clubs to intimidate white voters.
Despite their willingness to tacitly condone voter intimidation, a key issue for the Democrat Party is the rejection of voter ID laws which states have implemented to curtail voter fraud.
They often maintain that voter ID laws are, somehow, racist- Republican-led efforts to create barriers to voting for minority voters.
Of course, to believe this narrative, one must also believe that minorities in America are either too stupid or too lazy to secure IDs- a notion that is tremendously racist.
The same party that maintains it is unconstitutional to require the same burden required to drive, board an airplane or even buy a pack of cigarettes simultaneously, however, posit that it is acceptable to require citizens to provide photo ID, a fee and fingerprints to obtain governmental permission to purchase a firearm- a constitutional right.
Though Democrats have retained an obscene level of disdain for the premise of free elections, few have dared to actually physically block access to voting stations.
When Angela Grace went to vote in the Massachusetts primary on Tuesday, she encountered a campaign event taking place where Bill Clinton was stumping for his wife.
In doing so, Clinton had effectively blocked-off all access to the polls for voters.
“I haven’t seen one person be able to come in and be able to vote in here. Everything is blocked off. No person can park here,” Grace said in a YouTube video she filmed.
“They are affecting the voting at this poll. It’s ridiculous. It’s fraud and illegal,” she declared as she showed the lengthy area blocked-off by cars and cones that kept voters at bay.
“From one side of the street to the other, there’s no way anybody can get down here to vote.”
Grace’s mayor was also part of the problem. “Mayor of New Bedford, MA campaigning for Hillary and blocking this voting poll!!! No one has come here to vote in the 2 hours I’ve been here by the door!!” she wrote in the YouTube video description.
Remember this the next time a liberal laughably claims that Republicans are leading some sort of dastardly quest to disenfranchise voters.
