The Return Of Jim Crow?

Democrats and devotees of the ‘racism industry’ are having great difficulty with the Supreme Court’s Voting Act ruling: “the return of Jim Crow, a major setback, a dagger to the heart of voting rights.”

It’s hard to imagine that any rational, reasonable person regardless of affiliation would agree with the underlying premise. The premise being that in the last 50 years our society has made not one ounce of progress; no change in American society, no change in mores, no change in behaviors, no change in the conditions under which Blacks participate in the electoral process.

Was there a rational for the Voting Rights Act in the first place; absolutely! Is this a return to Jim Crow; no way! Jim Crow is one of those terms thrown around in upset in the wake of the Supreme’s ruling. The term reflects a series of laws across a number of states were government sponsored; racial segregation was embodied in the laws of those states. That underpinning, in support of the need for the Voting Rights Act is simply no longer what it once was; not even close.

Ironically, Democrats, horrified at the Court’s decision are most often involved in voter fraud and the institutional sponsorship of voter fraud. If Google searches are any indication, search ‘pending cases of voter fraud, Democrats’ you get 8,600,000 hits. Replace Democrat with Republican and the number is 2,900,000. Democrats own 75% of the Google voter fraud hits. When looking at pending fraud cases ARORN is prevalent as is a Democratic Secretary of State. Virginia and Maryland have pending cases that involve Democratic elected officials. These are the same folks that don’t want voter ID laws on the books; it’s racist!

It gets worse; in 1982 the RNC, inexplicably, agreed to a consent decree in a case brought by the DNC regarding intimidation of minority voters in New Jersey. The GOP was barred from “undertaking any ballot security activities in polling places or election districts where the racial of ethnic composition of such districts is a factor in the decision or conduct” …. of elections. In other words the RNC was barred from fighting back against voter fraud, were they to do so, RNC officials would find themselves held in contempt of court.

The pathway to fraud was open and the Democratic Party merrily skipped down the path without fear of opposition. That decision is, finally, making its way to the Supreme Court and the decision on the Voting Rights Act could set the stage for a similar decision regarding that consent decree. Would that be Jim Crow in reverse?

The real upset, I suspect, is that the Federal Government’s role in the election process is now diminished and the process has been returned to the states. Any reduction of Federal power is the real ‘dagger’ to the hearts of the Democratic faithful.

  • Maybe the Justice Department should set sights on the 59 precincts in Philly where Romney received exactly zero votes. Maybe they should worry about Black Panther Party members “monitoring” polling locations with billy clubs in case they need to be beat down some voters.

    You hit the crux of the issue: diminished federal power.

    Anytime the feds lose a little power, progressives tear up as if the world they once knew is changing for the worse. That’s why some of the real loons are distraught over DOMA being struck down. They didn’t like the law but they hate federal power being diminished in regards to regulating anything.

    I doubt the progressive left is worried. At the rate that the country is going down the slippery slope the left picks up 50 new left leaning FEDERAL regulations for every 1 they lose.The system they use is they propose a new legislation and negotiate for as much as they can while Congressional republicans gladly assist. They then come back at a future date and make amendments adding on to what they already received. If the legislation route don’t work they use the courts or FEDERAL AGENCIES to the bureaucracy boondoggle.

    As far as DOMA we haven’t begun to see the havoc the progressives are about to do with that decision. God help us !

  • Oh they’re not worried, they just lament it like a death in the family of ugly gov’t regulations.

    And you’re right:

    “As far as DOMA we haven’t begun to see the havoc the progressives are about to do with that decision.”

    The decision will be used to invalidate state laws prohibiting gay marriage under equal protection. This is the first precedent being set. Beyond that who knows… the polygamists are also rejoicing.

    Nate;
    I was thinking bigger. Since the decision of DOMA was based on “a government attempt to demean and degrade” homosexuals this now can be used as a hammer against anything that is said or done. The biggest obstacle that has been standing in the Progressives way (besides the Constitution) has been the church. The assault on the church will now be unrelenting in not only forcing the church to cease from preaching it’s hateful anti-gay doctrine but providing abortions and contraception for employees and performing same sex marriage ceremonies. If they don’t they can expect the same battle the Boy Scouts experienced where their tax exempt status and non-profit status will be revoked. The church with it’s shrinking number of parishioners would never be able to afford these taxes and will either fold or relent.

    Big government is the God of the Progressives as we have seen in the 2012 election. They provide the fishes and loaves for the sheep….in return for voters support. No more honoring your father and mother because now you can have two mothers and who needs a father. Thou shall not murder?….when it’s an unwanted child a woman can do what ever she wants. Thou shall not covet thy neighbors property?……lets call it redistribute wealth.

    With the Supreme Court continuous interpreting the Constitution any way they feel and the death of the church Progressives have won the morality wars….GAME ,SET MATCH!

    Same sex marriage has been successfully assimilated through a good portion of American society through the same prism as civil rights. With the Supreme Court ruling saying it was solely based on “attempt to demean and degrade” the court gives any opposition court endorsement to be painted as biased and the potential for hate/speech crimes.

    The current administration hasn’t masked it’s animosity to either the Jewish nor Christian religions in the past. We can expect it to continue coercing it’s left wing socialism against religion through Obamacare.
