To put this in perspective:
Simple enough, right? Just produce a state issued driver’s license, federally issued passport or government identity card.
- The other day I purchased a bottle of wine. The casher smiled at me—and asked for my identification, to verify I was 21 years of age and legally able to purchase alcohol.
- Recently, before being subjected to molestation by a TSA official after I opted out of going through the x-ray scanner that doubles as a carcinogen, I had to show proof of identification to verify that the name on the airplane ticket was really mine.
Do the Obamaniacs think Hispanics don’t drink? Fly?
In states throughout the U.S., Republican legislatures have been working to pass sensible laws that would require the showing of photo identification before voting.
Sounds reasonable, right?
Not to Obama's Attorney General Eric "My People" Holder, Perez’ boss and the guy running a notoriously anti-white Department of Justice.
Just before Holiday, Holder’s DOJ filed against South Carolina’s voter ID law. [SC voter ID law rejected by Justice Department, December 23, 2011] And then on the holiest of American Holy Days, Holder denounced other states daring to consider similar legislation:
Attorney General Eric Holder used Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy on the anniversary of the civil rights leader’s birthday Monday to emphasize the Obama administration’s dedication to protecting the American people from discriminatory voting practices.
“Despite our nation’s record of progress, and long tradition of extending voting rights – today, a growing number of citizens are worried about the same disparities, divisions, and problems that Dr. King fought throughout his life to address and overcome,” Holder said at an MLK Day event in Columbia, S.C.
Holder’s remarks in the Palmetto State come just weeks after the Justice Department blocked the state’s new voter ID law from taking effect, citing an unfair burden on minority voters.
Citing the “drumbeat of concern” he has encountered from Americans across the country about discrimination in the election systems, the attorney general vowed that the Justice Department was more committed than ever before to enforcing the Voting Rights Act.
Read the rest there, comment on it here. Were we a normal society, Voter ID wouldn't even be a question. Were it even up for debate, actual opposition to what the Department of Justice (DOJ) is doing to Texas and South Carolina would exist in the form of a leader or statesman for people to rally around.Martin Luther King Jr. cited by Eric Holder on voting issues Politico.com, January 16, 2012[Links added by VDARE.com]
Besides, Teen Wolf taught us all we need to know about ID, right?
Guess what? In our world, those who protest over a Voter ID law don't turn into werewolves, as Michael J. Fox threatened to do. They just whine about "racism."
Scott Howard: Hi. I'd like a keg of beer please? Old man clerk: [looking at a newspaper] You don't say. Scott Howard: Yeah. How much is that? Old man clerk: You little bastards just don't give up, do you? Listen, no I.D. no goddamn beer. Can't you get that through your thick skull? Scott Howard: [his eyes turn red and his voice changes] Give me, a keg, of beer.
[the clerk steps back in fear and go gets a keg, then Scott turns back to normal holding a thing of licorice] Scott Howard: And these.
