The ACLU is standing against a bill in Pennsylvania that requires voters to show identification because old people and black people are reeeeeeaaaaallly stupid and don’t know how to get identification.
State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe’s Pennsylvania Voter Identification Protection Act, HB 934, passed the House State Government Committee and will advance to the House floor for consideration. The civil rights advocates at the PA chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) were quick to criticize the measure, saying it would lead to disenfranchisement…
ACLU says that a significant portion of U.S. citizens, 11 percent, do not have a government-issued photo ID, and that the law would create a barrier around the voting booth.
“According to research, 11 percent of U.S. citizens do not have government-issued photo ID,” said Andy Hoover, legislative director of the ACLU of Pennsylvania. ”Those without ID are disproportionately the elderly, African-Americans, and the working poor.
“Voter ID laws create barriers to the ballot box that, intended or not, remind us of our country’s sad history of denying the vote .”
What an insult to old people, poor people, and African Americans. Don’t they realize that the ACLU looks down on them as somehow unable to get any identification whatsoever.
And the assertion that asking for identification is like “our country’s sad history of denying the vote” is just ridiculous. When I’m asked for identification to get on a plane I’m not reminded of the days before planes were invented.
The bill’s author said that “Currently in Pennsylvania it is impossible to board a commercial airplane, cash a paycheck, operate a motor vehicle or even purchase season passes to a neighborhood swimming pool or amusement park without displaying a valid photo ID.”
But we all know what this is about. This isn’t about making sure minorities and old people get to vote. This is about the Democrat Party’s ability to defraud elections. Make no mistake, by standing against this voter identification bill the ACLU is coming out in favor of fraudulent elections.
And by coming out for essentially giving more votes to Democrats doesn’t that make Republican voters count for less than one vote. My goodness it’s almost like Republican voters are only 3/5 of a vote or something, according to the ACLU.
In closing, I just think it’s kinda’ weird for an organization that actually issues membership cards to be against identification. And to get one of their membership cards you have to give them your credit card information. So I guess they don’t just accept your word for it that you’ll donate. They need verification, huh?
