NAACP APPEAL TO FOREIGN SOURCES FOR HELP TO OVERTURN VOTER ID

Liberals will go to extreme measure to try to force their philosophy on Americans.  The NAACP started out well, but has now been captured by left wing philosophy that is detrimental to the people they supposedly represent.  Of all people the NCAACP should be in favor of voter id in order to squelch voter fraud .    The following article will display the truth:

NAACP takes its anti-ID argument overseas

Two conservative pro-family activists are expressing their outrage that the NAACP has gone to a dubious United Nations agency to attack voter ID laws being enacted in several U.S. states.

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People recently sent representatives to Geneva, Switzerland, last week to plead its case to the United Nations Human Rights Council regarding what it considers efforts of "voter suppression." The group is upset that eight states have already passed voter ID laws in the past year, and that 32 more states have such legislation pending.
Such laws, according to NAACP president Ben Jealous, "will disproportionately block members of minority groups from voting," he told the Council.
Gary Bauer 2 (American Values)Gary Bauer, chairman of American Values, says the NAACP is out of touch with mainstream America.
"To take it to a United Nations commission that has on its membership countries like Saudi Arabia that doesn’t even today allow women to vote, as well as other countries that are notorious in having rigged elections? Somebody at the NAACP needs a reality check," he states.
Robert Knight is a senior fellow at the American Civil Rights Union and a columnist forThe Washington Times. He considers the NAACP’s actions "an act of betrayal."
Robert Knight"We’re talking about a group of Americans going to Geneva and complaining in front of a U.N. Human Rights Council composed of some of the rogue-est nations in the world, including China, Cuba, and they said that the U.S. is a human rights violator," he laments. "This was, I think, an act of betrayal …."
Bauer and Knight agree that left-wing groups like the NAACP love to go overseas to trash their own country when they fail to win their arguments with the American people.

  1. “Of all people the NAACP should be in favor of voter id in order to squelch voter fraud.” Actually, the NAACP (wrong as they are about same-sex marriage) is right about this.

    Despite the urban legends about ACORN and dead people voting in Chicago, the fact is that there is practically no voter fraud in the US. In it’s July 10, 2012 edition, the Harrisburg (PA) Patriot-News reported that “the Republican National Lawyers Association last year published a report showing 400 election fraud prosecutions had happened over a decade nationwide. That is not even one per state per year.” Not even one whole case per state per year! That’s what the Republicans say.

    And here’s the smoking gun: in court filings in the lawsuit brought against it for its voter ID law, the state of Pennsylvania made these stipulations:

    “There have been no investigations or prosecutions of in-person voter fraud in Pennsylvania; and the parties do not have direct personal knowledge of any such investigations or prosecutions in other states.” The state further stipulated that it “will not offer any evidence in this action that in-person voter fraud has in fact occurred in Pennsylvania and elsewhere,” nor will it “offer argument or evidence that in-person voter fraud is likely to occur in November 2012 in the absence of the Photo ID law.”

    In other words, not only could they not find fraud that would be corrected by ID laws in PA, they don’t claim it exists anywhere in the nation! Implementation of these laws will cost PA taxpayers $8 million to correct a problem not even proponents claim exists.

    So, why these laws? Pennsylvania Republican House Leader Mike Turzai, in a speech celebrating GOP accomplishments, provided the answer:

    “Voter ID, which is gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania, done.”

    In my opinion Christians should all be outraged at this attempted misuse of election law to gain unfair political advantage for one party over the other.
