The Republican ‘War On Voting Rights’ – ‘Take the Impossible “Literacy” Test Louisiana Gave Black Voters in the 1960s’

vote test

‘There was little room for befuddlement. The test was to be taken in 10 minutes flat, and a single wrong answer meant a failing grade’.

‘This week’s Supreme Court decision in Shelby County v. Holder overturned Section 4(b) of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which mandated federal oversight of changes in voting procedure in jurisdictions that have a history of using a “test or device” to impede enfranchisement. Here is one example of such a test, used in Louisiana in 1964’.

‘After the end of the Civil War, would-be black voters in the South faced an array of disproportionate barriers to enfranchisement. The literacy test—supposedly applicable to both white and black prospective voters who couldn’t prove a certain level of education but in actuality disproportionately administered to black voters—was a classic example of one of these barriers’.

‘Most of the tests collected here are a battery of trivia questions related to civic procedure and citizenship. (Two from the Alabama test: “Name the attorney general of the United States” and “Can you be imprisoned, under Alabama law, for a debt?”’)

‘But this Louisiana “literacy” test, singular among its fellows, has nothing to do with citizenship. Designed to put the applicant through mental contortions, the test’s questions are often confusingly worded. If some of them seem unanswerable, that effect was intentional. The (white) registrar would be the ultimate judge of whether an answer was correct’.

‘Democrats Just Want You to Listen to Republicans’

crazy repubs

‘Raw Story notes Democrats “have a new strategy to use against their Republicans opponents: Just let them speak.”

“Following the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down the federal Defense of Marriage Act and California’s Proposition 8, the ‘DemRapidResponse’ channel simply uploaded a more than 20 minute long Republican press conference. The video wasn’t even edited, with the exception of a five second introduction that flashed, ‘Grand Old Party, Same Old Party on marriage equality’ across the screen.”

Stories From The Fringe – ‘700 Club Pat Robertson: Justice Kennedy May Have Gay Clerks Who Wrote DOMA ‘

Yeah.

The Supreme Court overturned DOMA because Justice Kennedy has ‘gay’ clerks………not because it was un Constitutional.

‘Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kansas) warned of a coming “train wreck” when enrollment begins in ObamaCare insurance exchanges this fall in the Republican weekly address’.

‘Roberts, an outspoken opponent of President Obama’s healthcare reforms, said that important questions remain before the exchanges, part of what he called a “massive federal government takeover,” go into effect in October’.

‘Roberts is the author of a bill that would repeal the exchanges if the deadline is missed, which he touted to close the address’.

But it’s NOT Republican Obstructionism – ‘GOP Leaders Warn Pro Sports Leagues Not To Promote Obamacare’

mitch mcconnell1

This is the ‘new’ Republican Party.

If they don’t approve of it…….no one can have it.

The ‘new’ Republican pledge………Screw the United States…..it’s “ONE PARTY UNDER GOD”.

“It is difficult for us to remember another occasion when major sports league took public sides in such a highly polarized public debate,” McConnell and Cornyn wrote’.

‘Democratic aides point out that it’s nothing new for political leaders to partner with private organizations on behalf of their constituents, citing as one example the 2007 partnership between Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and the Boston Red Sox to promote Romneycare’.

‘Senate Republican leaders have sent letters warning six professional sports leagues not to provide the Obama administration any assistance in promoting Obamacare’.

‘The letters, dated June 27, warn the chiefs of the National Football League, Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association, National Hockey League, Professional Golf Association and NASCAR that partnering with the administration to publicize the benefits of the health care law would damage their reputations’.

teabagger Alert!! – ‘Colorado Parade Canceled After Tea Party Group Threatens Armed March’

teabaggers4

It’s really amazing as the Independence Day 4th Of July has nothing to do with the Constitution or the Bill of Rights and the 2nd Amendment.

But don’t tell that to a teabagger.

After all……..THEY know history and the Constitution.

‘A group of Tea Party members caused fear that a Colorado town’s 4th of July parade won’t be safe to attend because they’ll be carrying weapons’.

‘The town of Westcliffe normally has a lively 4th of July parade every year and is described as the busiest day for businesses. This year, however, citizens were afraid of what will happen with as many as 300 people marching with guns slung on their shoulders’.

‘The Southern Colorado Patriots’ Club sent a out a flier advertising the parade and instructing members to bring unloaded rifles, “especially the evil black ones.”

‘The Custer County Chamber of Commerce, the event’s sponsor, cancelled the parade after fearful citizens circulated a petition to stop the club. Donna Hood, president of the chamber, abstained from the vote to cancel the parade but told the Denver Post that the controversy has “polarized this community in a week.”

‘According to the Post, members have carried concealed weapons in the past, but this year want to be more dramatic after two gun control laws passed the legislature that will take effect on Monday’.

‘Lawmaker Seeks to Regulate Men’s Reproductive Health’

war on women5

‘Ohio state Sen. Nina Turner (D) has proposed a bill forcing men to “see a sex therapist, receive a cardiac stress test and get a notarized affidavit signed by a sexual partner affirming impotency” before allowing them to get a prescription for Viagra or other erectile dysfunction drugs, the Dayton Daily News reports’.

“Turner said if state policymakers want to legislate women’s health choices… they should also be able to legislate men’s reproductive health.”

Republican Obstruction at Work: Record Number of Filibusters’
@ : http://newsjunkiepost.com/2010/03/02/republican-obstruction-at-work-record-number-of-filibusters/
VERNON TWP. — ‘Gov. Chris Christie veered to the right this morning, twice touting himself as a “conservative Republican” and taking a shot at President Obama within the first 10 minutes of a town hall meeting in Sussex County’.

‘Unlike his famous praise of Obama’s leadership during Hurricane Sandy, Christie today said Obama is not an effective leader’.

“I know when you look at Washington right now, you shake your head at a president who can’t figure out how to lead, at a Congress that only 11 percent of the people in the last poll I saw approve of the job they’re doing,” Christie told hundreds inside the Vernon Township High School gym’.

“That’s what happens when you have someone in the executive office who is more concerned about being right than he is concerned about getting things done,” Christie said. “But I’m not going to be that kind of leader of New Jersey.”
