NAACP Taking Complaints About U.S. Voter Laws to United Nations
Fox News ^ | December 6, 2011 | Judson Berger

Posted on 12/06/2011 4:15:38 PM PST by jazusamo

The NAACP is calling on the United Nations to intervene as it claims state governments are colluding to "block the vote" for minority communities ahead of the 2012 election -- a charge those governments vehemently deny.

The nation's biggest civil rights organization this week released a report that claimed a raft of new voting laws at the state level would disenfranchise minority voters. The report said 14 states passed 25 measures "designed to restrict or limit the ballot access of voters of color."

The report catalogued several categories of laws that have been passed largely by Republican-dominated legislatures and which Democrats have decried in recent months as tools of voter suppression. The new laws include requirements to present photo ID at the polls, voting restrictions on felons and limitations on registration and early voting periods.

Supporters of the laws describe them as common-sense measures meant to ensure the integrity of elections. In Tennessee, which is implementing a new photo ID law, elections coordinator Mark Goins dismissed the criticism and questioned why the NAACP would flag the United Nations over its concerns, calling that effort "a bit extreme."

"I don't know what the benefit of going to the U.N. would be," he said. "I can't imagine any authority whatsoever that they would have here in Tennessee."

But the NAACP described the new measures as part of a "concerted" effort to drive down minority turnout and is planning a multi-stage campaign to attract international attention.

To start, the group is planning a "Stand 4 Freedom" rally this Saturday across from the U.N. headquarters. Supporters are being asked to sign an online pledge which, among other demands, calls on the United Nations to "investigate and condemn voter suppression tactics in the United States."

I guess they’re complaining that radicals are trying to intimidate people away from the polls and the government won’t do anything about it.

Well, the progressives have won. We are now no different then a third world nation. Civil War is most likely unavoidable. The fiscal balkenization into seperate waring nations should commence within the next few years. Welcome to hell!

The NAACP needs the UN to fight their battles?

What a worthless, overrated, yet praised, misdirected pile of excrement organization the NAACP is to have to depend upon a worthless, overrated, yet praised, misdirected pile of excrement organization, the UN!

"If you're an eligible voter, you're going to be fine. If you're an ineligible voter ... then you're going to have issues," he told FoxNews.com.

Those issues for the ineligible voters are that they want to vote though they're ineligible and they want to vote more than once.

“designed to restrict or limit the ballot access of voters of color.”

Translation: NAACP is not pleased that their usual voting fraud technique, having certain ‘people of color’ cast more then one vote, has been exposed.

How does requiring everyone to produce a photo ID either ""block the vote" for minority communities", "disenfranchise minority voters", or "restrict or limit the ballot access of voters of color"? It doesn't.

It would seem that the 97% voter turnout of black Chicagoans is suppressed by mysterious repubicans (from outer space). Everyone knows that the only Republicans in Illinois work for the Democratic machine.

Tell the NAALCP that we will accept fingerprints in lieu of photo ID.

The voter has to stick around while his prints are run through AFIS, though.

Here is proof, clearly these are Republicans and they have only intimidation of voters of colour in mind:

Their counter-argument is that once you register to vote by presenting ID, you shouldn’t have to re-present it at the time of voting. Slows things down; creates extra bureaucracy, etc., etc.....

The NAALCP complaint against Texas is student IDs are not valid to register to vote. I would think accepting a student ID would allow the student to vote in 2 states. I know my kid was constantly being pressured to register at college in PA while registered in OH. My kid refused.

You did register.

Then you present you ID so the nice old ladies know that you are the same person that registered under that name.

I say that the NAACP is desperate! With voter id required in every possible voting district, voter fraud will be cut deeply.

The only way they would have a legitimate case would be if we passed laws setting a mimunum IQ score to be eligible to vote. It still wouldn’t disenfranchise blacks per se, but rather democrats in general.
