Voter ID laws racist?

How do voter ID laws discriminate against minorities?  Because it doesn’t let illegals vote?  Or what about felons?  Read what Fox News posted about our Attorney General and what he had to say to the NAACP.  What most disturbs me about this administration and its minions is that they always attack policy for being discriminatory, but they only defend minorities who have been wronged.  They don’t stand up for people evenly across the board.  The Obama Administration is the most divisive in the history of the US.  Even more so than Abraham Lincoln, and he literally split the nation!

From FoxNews.com

Attorney General Eric Holder on Tuesday reinforced his opposition to Texas’ new voter ID law, saying during an NAACP convention in Houston that it hurts minorities and that politics is the driving force behind the issue.

Holder called Texas the “center of our national debate” on voting-rights issues and vowed the Justice Department would “aggressively” fight to enforce those rights.

“We will not allow political pretext to disenfranchise American citizens of their most precious rights,” he said.

Holder delivered his remarks on the second day of a federal trial in Washington, D.C., regarding the 2011 law passed by the Republican-led Texas Legislature that requires voters to show photo identification at polling stations, an effort to prevent voter fraud.

“I don’t know what will happen as this case moves forward,” Holder said. “But I can assure you that the Justice Department’s efforts to uphold and enforce voting rights will remain aggressive.”

He also said the agency found the law “would be harmful to minority voters.”

Holder said the arc of American history has always moved toward expanding the electorate and that “we will simply not allow this era to be the beginning of the reversal of that historic progress.”

The attorney general spoke at the 103rd convention of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, which is launching a battle against new state voter ID laws.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

This is one of the most ridiculous arguments for the voter ID law issue I’ve seen.  All states have some sort of ID that anyone can get to show who they are.  The Dems just want their groupies to be ablt to vote several times.  Crooked libs.

    As you pointed out, this is especially hypocritical when we consider the lack of response to the intimidation tactics employed by the New Black Panthers in the last major election.

    Too sad.
