Skip to comments.UN affiliate group to monitor US elections for conservative voter supression
Posted on 10/21/2012 1:39:42 AM PDT by Mozilla
The Hill is reporting today that the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, a partner group of the United Nations, will deploy 44 observers from countries such as Germany, France, Serbia, Belarus, Ukraine and Kazakhstan to observe the U.S. election amid concerns of voter suppression efforts by conservative groups.
Who invited them? The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the NAACP, the ACLU and other groups sent a letter to the OSCE warning of a coordinated political effort to disenfranchise millions of Americans particularly traditionally disenfranchised groups like minorities. Representatives of the groups met with OSCE officials this week, says The Hill, to discuss systematic efforts to suppress minority voters likely to vote for President Obama.

On the basis of what? Voter ID laws? If any of the countries of these observers require voter ID, and many countries do, then I don’t want to hear a PEEP out of these jerks.
Where were they during the NBPP fiasco? Where were they during all the “vote early, vote often, vote when you’re dead” cases coming out of liberal bastions?
Requiring people to follow the law is not voter suppression.
It’s been said before, but I too, think these SOBs will try ANYTHING to win this election.
This is a reasonable reaction for someone who believes the media, as European liberals likely do. They will come, they will monitor, they will leave disappointed, pretending to be pleased. Not a big deal.
Watch all they want, it is not going to change the facts. It is NOT going to be close, they will NOT be able to cheat.
That means at least 44 more votes cast and counted for comrade obama.
I have been in Germany for about a month and am occasionally asked which candidate I support. Every one has been absolutely astonished that I would prefer Romney to Obama, and even moreso when I tell them that Romney is very likely to win. One person even asked me about Romney “tying the family dog to the top of their car.” He literally thought Romney had tied the poor beast on top of the car with rope. After explaining that the dog had been in a carrier on top of the car, he thought that was perfectly fine and normal.
Their news outlets (Leftist, to begin with) get their information on the U.S. from The New York Times, Reuters, and the AP. So it does not surprise me in the least that organizations in these countries would believe the manure spread by NAACP, ACLU and other radical Leftist American groups.
So we need our elections certified by Kazakhstan before the Dems accept an adverse outcome? Or not even then?
No mention of liberal voter intimidation?
Please come to Mississippi and please step closer than 100 feet to my polling place... I begs ya. Oh man... git me sum blue helmet... yeah buddy... come on down y’all!
Judging our elections? THAT Belarus?
The UN has a lot to loose with a zero loss. The American taxpayers money stops!

Thank you for pointing that out. It’s always about the money (and therefore power), isn’t it?
OK, Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, name one, just ONE, “voter suppression effort by conservative groups” in the United States.
This administration was very stupid to allow this or encourage this. Americans will not like it.
Please explain what conservative voter suppression is.
I would not be surprised if some sort of “incidents” have been pre-planned for these guys to discover. The media will conflate some minor item into a massive injustice. At minimum they will try to tarnish Romney’s victory and mandate.
according to the article, there has been a “tradition” of it...
Christmas, Easter, 4th of July, minority voter disenfranchisement.... All happy traditions of conservative americans.
What do you eat at your house for minority voter disenfranchisement eve?
Send them to Las Vegas/Clark County- where the massive voter fraud got us a re0run of Dirty Harry Reid.
His opponent was ahead on Mon night by 4 and lost on Tues night by 6. A 10 point swing.
