Holder: Congress must stop ‘voting rights discrimination’
msnbc ^ | 4:41 PM on 07/15/2013 | Zachary Roth

Posted on 07/16/2013 3:37:37 PM PDT by Red Steel

Attorney General Eric Holder believes that “Congress needs to act” to protect the right to vote in the wake of the Supreme Court’s ruling last week gutting the Voting Rights Act.

“The Justice Department is eager to work with Congressional leaders of both parties, and with concerned citizens like you, to craft new legislation to fill the void left by the Court’s ruling and address voting rights discrimination,” Holder told Delta Sigma Theta, a sorority founded at Howard University, on Monday.

Put Holder in jail, so he need not worry about this.

Does this mean he’s going to put a stop to NBPs outside polls with nightsticks? I thought not.

I agree voting rights discrimination against lawful U.S. citizens must end! Every voter should be required to show uncounterfietable ID. Congress pass the law now.

Does Holder mean the part where whites and other conservatives only get to vote once?

Because 120% of registered voters turnout might not be enough next time.

Stupid people elected a man bent on destroying the U.S.

Some voted for free goodies, some voted to show how they aren’t racist.All were short-sighted.

I agree. Voter suppression has to stop.

This is why Lois Lerner, Eric Holder, Doug Shulman and the entire management of the IRS and DOJ have to be prosecuted for the willful suppression of Conservative voters.

Well, Eric, why don't you go back to defending terrorists and being paid with tainted blood money. At least that is better than you sucking on the taxpayer teat at my expense.

BTW, if there is a "Black Panther" armed with a deadly weapon blocking my polling station on election day, there will be absolutely no reason for you to reach out and pardon the criminal punk. And you can take that to the frick'n bank.

And in some districts instead of 100% for the democratic candidate they could garner 105%...

Only in liberal Wonderland would enforcing an inherently discriminatory law be considered the solution to discrimination.

Hey Holder, the only voter rights discrimination happening in America today is when you liberal RATS vote multiple times, canceling out our votes. Stick that in Obama’s crack pipe and smoke it.

Have you seen any credible (read: verified) stories about voter turnout over 100%? It seems highly unlikely to me, for the sole reason that it is the absolute dumbest way to commit widespread voter fraud - no easier way to get caught.

I'm not disagreeing with what you said, but...

Of all the congressional investigations of this corrupt regime, name one that has come to conclusion?

I'm beginning to believe it's all a big con game.

Holder is so disgusting. Why on earth is he still AG after lying to Congress, Fast & Furious, wiretapping reporters and all the many other crimes he has committed. Where are our leaders demanding that he resign or start movements to have him removed. Enough is enough. It’s SO frustrating that nothing ever happens to these criminals.

The Whitehouse, embroiled by numerous scandals and controversies of their own making, choose to dodge the spotlights that have been focused on them by refocusing lapdog media attention on a "racist" theme of righteous indignation ... a so-called "white hispanic" who defended himself by shooting a somewhat questionable black character.

This gives the "white black" (?) President Obama and Eric Holder a chance to play defense by going on the offense: counter-attack! And, it lets them do it with implicit white guilt accusations and throws in an anti-2nd amendment flavor just for the heck of it.

The only "Void" in the Election Process is the lack of Voter ID. Lack of Voter ID and FRAUD are what got us The Messiah, and his butt-boy, Holder.

Voter Fraud should be punishable as Treason, and the perps should be Hanged in the Public Square, period.

Hows the DOJ investigation into IRS targeting of conservative groups going?

Shove it, Mr AG. You have absolutely no credibility.

Seems fair, since for the last few years I seem to be cursing at the ballot when I vote.

Seems like all of the “investigations” just disappear after a while. Once they are off the radar we don’t hear about it again.

They ALWAYS protect their own.

To make a decision one must gather information. The gathering process by it’s very nature involves sorting facts.

To sort, one must discriminate.

Discrimination is good and ordinary and necessary
