Democrats boycott Coke, Walmart over voter ID laws
The Examiner ^ | April 4, 2012 | Paul Bedard

Posted on 04/04/2012 11:19:05 AM PDT by LucianOfSamasota

Democratic officials Wednesday launched a two-pronged attack on states with new laws requiring identification before voting, the highlight being a call to boycott Coke, Walmart and others that back a leading organization pushing for voter ID laws.

“We are organizing. We are not agonizing,” said Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., who is leading a parallel Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s effort to get government identification into the hands of the estimated 2-3 million Democrats who don’t have one. “We have staffed up,” he said.

It will be a pleasure to shop more at Walmart just to tick off a liberal.

I love everything about South Carolina except for kudzu and the 6th congressional district with its congressthing-for-life James Clyburn. Sixth District is the plantation and he is the plantation owner, if you overlook that Clyburn is a certified idiot but gerrymandering long ago solved that little problem. We has been under NAACP boycott since 2000 over the Confederate flag and all it does is make Democrats & black athletes tie theselves into pretzels to avoid staying in public accomodations. Boycott this, boycott that, it’s all mox nix.

And the flag? It had been a third little flag beneath two other little flags way up on top of the State House dome. Now it flies proudly almost at street level, right next to the Confederate Soldier monument, in an enhanced ensemble of Rebel defiance, staring pointedly northward.

Boycott? Be careful what you wish for.

Elitest democrats don’t shop at Walmart anyway, so it’s easy for them. And their voters in the inner cities and poorer areas can’t afford to shop anywhere else. So good luck with the boycott. I doubt Walmart will notice any change whatsoever.

When I participated in Operation Chaos in 2008 I had to show a photo ID to attend the democrat party caucus the night of the primary. When I said, “I thought we were against requiring a photo ID” I was told democrat party rules required proof of ID to participate.

So true. Can't you just see Clyburn's "type" going else where & spending more for the same. Actually this could increase sales.

They are probably also protesting how Wal-Mart makes them show ID when they are using credit cards.

Oh please please let them boycott Colorado, pretty please. Image the snit they’d get themselves into if they had to mail along a copy of their photo id with their mail in ballot for local elections:)!!

Think about it. 2-3 million dems have no ID. If they spent a 10th of the time dealing with getting these people ID istead of moaning about it the issue would have gone away 20 years ago.

I can only see positives in this. No more people of WalMart. No more thugs in the parking lot? Fewer door dings?

All sounds good to me.

as if Democrats READ.

as if Democrats pay attention.

The only thing democrats do is vote as they are told. Beyond that a 2x4 has more mental capacity.

Great idea Democrats, demand that poor people make themselves poorer so you can steal more elections and create more poor people. Ridiculous.

Not me, my daughter and I have a 6:20 am flight to the Sunshine State tomorrow!

We’ve required ID for voting for years!

I got my first government issued photo ID in Florida! It was called a driver's license and that was 1978!

Really; I have a Wal-Mart in my town, and I wouldn’t mind if the Dems boycotted it. As it is, I only go there early in the morning on weekends (while all of the Dems are still sleeping) and it’s not bad at all.

Funny, because the Woodruff family, heirs to the Coca Cola fortune, are Republicans.

We NEED video of a similar incident to this to use to counter their voter ID whining!

Vote fraud machines: Pick address that can be easily monitored, Mailboxes etc for example, apartment complexes for another, fill out voter registration cards using names from a cemetery or simply make them up, make a copy so you know what the signature looks like.

Now for either primary or general elections you request an absentee ballot for every one of those fake voters, vote the ballot, make sure the signature looks right, mail it back. No need for an ID with picture, no chance of being caught by a poll worker who knows you are not who you say you are. The end result, a stolen election. the voting public is gullible BUT there are some of us who can see and connect the dots.

Now before the general election ask your county registrar for a list of addresses with five or more voters. Go in a group and get face to face with each listed voter. If there is no voter to get face to face with, file charges with your local sheriff. If the registrar refuses to help you you know they are crooked and can act accordingly.
