Attorney General Eric Holder can scarcely last a week without accusing a huge swath of the American population of being hate-mongering racists. That familiar refrain repeated again this week when he cast such aspersion on those who want to curtail voter fraud.
During a recent MSNBC interview, Holder touched on the issue of voter identification laws, explaining his belief that much of the advocacy in favor of their implementation is based on some innate bigotry against minorities.
While he said the Justice Department is “not opposed to photo identification in a vacuum,” he alleged that Republicans use such measures as a means of “partisan advantage.”
In one respect, one could argue it is advantageous for a party continually oppressed by voter fraud to endorse effort to stem the tide. Of course, Holder’s true accusation is that the GOP is full of racists who don’t want minorities to vote.
“It is being used in too many instances to depress the vote of particular groups of people who are not supportive of the party that is advancing these photo ID measures,” he claimed.
For some reason, Holder believes members of his own race are incapable of obtaining a valid photo ID – despite the fact that such proof is needed for a litany of other common activities. Despite his rhetoric, however, the underlying intention of those who oppose commonsense measures like voter ID laws is to preserve the culture of election fraud that has undoubtedly led to recent Democrat victories.
In much the same way as granting legal status to illegal immigrants, leftists realize the only way to guarantee future electoral wins is by cheating. Democrats routinely advocate for laws allowing illegals to obtain valid ID in the U.S. while somehow contending that minority citizens are being prevented from visiting the DMV for the same service.
He expressed support of legal action against those who act to implement voter identification policies.
“If we can show that photo ID efforts are done inappropriately and for improper reasons,” he explained, “That ought to be the basis for federal intervention.”
While there has been no such evidence thus far in the widespread campaign to combat voter fraud, Holder and his minions nonetheless have no qualms about castigating its supporters.
