Not quite a "protest", but I think it fits here..................Liberal narrative and all

 

 

Voter ID law upheld in North Carolina. AGAIN.

 

You would think that eventually the Left would stop trying to get Voter ID declared unconstitutional – but they don’t, bless their hearts. Perhaps they can’t. It might be a compulsion, is what I’m saying.

 

In this particular case, the federal judge was pretty comprehensive about smacking down the plaintiffs; Thomas Schroeder ruled that opponents of Voter ID failed to demonstrate any kind of harm from the North Carolina law.

 

Also, you know it’s bad when Politico dryly reports:

 

“The plaintiffs “failed to show that such disparities will have materially adverse effects on the ability of minority voters to cast a ballot and effectively exercise the electoral franchise” as a result of the 2013 state law, Schroeder wrote. That argument was made more difficult after black voter turnout increased in 2014, he wrote.”

 

 

 

Then again, opposition to voter ID has always been a, if you’ll pardon the pun, distinctly minority opinion in the United States – including among minorities.

 

This is one of those situations where’s it’s trivially easy to argue the pro-Voter ID position: We require a photo ID for almost everything else in this country, but we shouldn’t require one to vote?

 

It doesn’t help the Left either that their argument assumes a rather insulting and paternalistic attitude towards minorities; contrary to the official opinion of the Democratic party, your average black or Hispanic voter is perfectly capable of getting a valid photo ID on his or her own… and in fact, most of them manage to, even without the heavy-handed hand of progressives to give them a helping finger.

 

So, smart call by the judge, there. Bit of a foregone conclusion, though.  I mean, Voter ID is pretty mainstream these days.

In fact, they're perfectly capable of getting one even if they're in this country illegally.

I particularly love how stupid progressives sound when, in one moment, they argue it's 'just too difficult' for adult minorities to acquire a photo ID, and in the next moment  argue that even a child can legally buy an automatic weapon online.

 

They argue that men are, generally, abusive to women in the way they are treated, hired, and paid, and the best way to ensure that men stop being abusive to women is to ensure it's perfectly okay for the men to use the women's public bathroom and showers.

 

They argue that we need to boycott and fine companies who treat gays poorly, but argue you must not boycott and fine companies who openly do business in countries where gays are hung in the public square.

 

The party of gatorman. In all its glory.

They'll never stop - it's their M.O. Just keep on protesting the same thing over and over and over, continue making it a ballot issue, continue accusing opponents of racism/sexism/whateverism until they eventually get their way. It's what they always do.

What's truly asinine about this is Terry McAuliffe arguing that he's allowed to do this, because he's just pardoning them all to restore their rights.  Except their right to gun ownership, that's still suspended under the law.

 

So it's not actually a pardon, it's McAuliffe deciding to change the law and pretending it's a pardon.

The Imperial B. O. has shown all executives how to bully their way to getting their way. God, when Trump/Hillary ascend to the office of POTUS they'll be an absolute terror.

Irony continues to be lost on the (professional) Left.

 

 Didn't the whole "Trump's a racist" thing start because he said some Mexicans were violent?

 

They sure showed him.......... :lol:

 

 

 Hundreds of Mexican flag-waving demonstrators smash up a squad car, punch a Donald supporter and scuffle with riot police amid angry scenes.

 

Rod Dreher writes:

 

When a guy running for president can’t speak to his supporters without opponents staging a near-riot outside, throwing rocks at passing motorists and vandalizing police cars, it makes you wonder if he doesn’t have a point about how the country is going downhill. Remember how protesters in Chicago back in March shut down a Trump rally before it got started? We cannot have a country where violent mobs no-platform political candidates. Period.

 

 

Meanwhile, Hot Air’s Larry O’Conner notes how the story is being reported by the American press:

 

“This was not a ‘protest,’ this was a riot. But, you’ll barely hear the media describing it that way.”

 

Read the whole thing, which quotes from L.A. Times and Washington Post reporters (read: Democrat activists with bylines) at their most Orwellian.

Beating people to silence them.

 

Sending the IRS after people to silence them.

 

Boycotting states to silence them.

 

Blocking entrances to seminars to silence them.

 

Blocking highways to disrupt traffic to silence them.

 

The left sure has a problem when it comes to anyone offering a differing opinion.

 

But...you know...tolerance, amirite?

Because frantic adherence to their dogma places them above the law. Just ask them.

This is the good kind of protesting that people like Nancy Pelosi wholeheartedly approve of.

 

Established voters going to their Senator and Congressional representative's town halls and asking pointed questions... not so much. That's despicable and akin to terrorism and anarchy.

The left is very tolerant, as long as they agree with what you say.

They are giant hypocrites but no one in the media ever calls them out on it. It's pathetic.

Only if you are a white, christian, gun owning, America loving veteran. Then the administration classifies you as a potential domestic terrorist.
