Skip to comments.UN monitors already observing Ohio elections to combat ‘voter suppression’

Since when does the UNs job include supervising American elections? Since progressive groups decided that conservatives have made it their mission to cruelly prevent people from voting. As Twitchy reported last week, a UN-affiliated group is deploying observers from Europe to keep their eyes out for voter suppression. Some of those observers are already on the ground in Ohio:
Election monitors from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), an organization organized under the United Nations Charter, have already begun observing Ohios election proceedings. OSCE plans to deploy a total of 44 European observers across America in response to claims from progressive groups that conservative groups seek to disenfranchise minority voters.
True the Vote president Catherine Engelbrecht rightly blasted the UNs involvement:
Its puzzling that these activist groups that have spent literally millions of dollars fighting reasonable policies like voter ID that most Americans support would call on a United Nations affiliated organization to monitor American elections! The U.N. itself is hardly a model of governmental integrity, Engelbrecht said.
Whats even more baffling is that these activist groups asked international monitors to help stop the purported suppression caused by photo voter ID laws - yet all the monitors are from countries with comprehensive photo voter ID laws, Engelbrecht added.
Its more than puzzling, more than baffling; its infuriating. And wrong. Ohio residents are livid:

@JohnKasich Governor, are you REALLY going to allow UN observers in here to observe our election? ohio.mediatrackers.org/2012/10/25/un-

Its disgusting. We suggest that the UN stick to what it does best: nothing. Leave us alone.
@izzysroses Ohio, kick out UN monitors

Get out of my country, Now.
UN voter suppression monitors
Texas has told them they will be arrested.
Put blue helmets on them. They make good targets.
This is an indication of where our country is heading when we let a pack of friggin foreigners come here to tell us how to run an election.
Get the UN out of America, and America out of the UN.
Sorry... FR is on crack again..
Let’s know our facts to make intelligent arguments:
In 1975 Gerald Ford, Leonid Brezhnev and 33 other heads of state gathered to sign the final agreement creating the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe [OCSE], thus agreeing to, among other things, election monitoring by other member states.
So the monitors are legally here, but we need to strongly argue that the US needs to get out of the OCSE.
How do you know ... blue helmets ?
I would love for that monkey to show up at my voting place on Nov 6. One of us would be sorry that he got up that morning.
Why would the UN monitor the U.S. Election so? Because they want to make sure THEIR guy is elected as the leader of the one world government that’s been secretly set in place...
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
As I ahve said many times here.
Fill the bunkers of the USS New Jersey, now docked in Camden, with fuel oil and light the boilers.
Load up several salvoes worth of 16 inch rounds.
Sail down the Delaware, up the Jersey Shore, and into New York Harbor.
Continue north up the East River.
After passing under the Manhattan Bridge, turn A, B, and X turrets to port.
At 42nd Street, the target will be at point blank range.
Shame on Ohio.
They need to take their lard a$$es to Downtown Detroit to do some observing. Lets see how good they are at staying alive, in addition to observing voting.
