Democrats Claim Voter ID Laws Are “Jim Crow”

Posted in Government and Politics by TeeJaw on Wednesday, June 22, 2011, 7: 18 AM

Democrats have never been embarrassed by their regular harangues of audacious chutzpah but their latest invective that voter ID laws are an attempt by Republicans to drag the country back to Jim Crow is too cute, and too asinine. DNC Chairman and Member of Congress Debbie Blabbermouth Shultz has made that claim. The Yiddish word “chutzpah” by itself used to signify a shameless level of audacity and gall, but Democrats have gone so far in their displays of all that this word stands for it now needs its own qualifiers to accurately describe their fanaticism. Democrats are the party that owns all of the history of the Jim Crow era. Those laws were totalitarian in all aspects of life for Black Americans, and the Democrat party was the sole architect and enforcer of everything Jim Crow.

If an ID requirement to vote is discriminatory why isn’t it so for boarding an Amtrak train, an airline or to drive a car? The answer is that no discrimination can be found in voter ID requirements. Blacks and Whites alike must present ID under such laws, and there is no reason to believe it’s any more difficult for Blacks than anyone else. Ms. Shultz’s claim is a subterfuge for what really has her upset. An ID requirement will eliminate at least some voter fraud, upon which Democrats increasingly rely for their future electoral success.
