Everyone knows that liberals think voter ID laws are terrible. They say requiring American citizens to show identification to vote discriminates against the disadvantaged and benefits the elite. Besides, the laws are unnecessary because voter fraud doesn’t exist. Right?
So the Democrats would have you believe. So it was hilarious, or pathetic, or just plain jaw-dropping, when the Democrat National Committee gathered in Atlanta on Saturday to elect a new party chairman.
Just before the vote, interim chairwoman Donna Brazile used her power of discretion to scrap the planned electronic voting in favor of paper ballots, according to The American Mirror. The reason? To make sure that every voter was property identified.
You were ahead of me on that one, weren’t you? Here’s the video.
“We have to make sure that we can not just count the ballots but verify every name and signature,” Brazile said. “And I want to make sure that at the conclusion of all of our votes, that you, the members of this party, will be able to review those ballots.”
In a general election, Democrats rail against requiring proof of identification before voting, howling that it oppresses the black and the poor. But when their own party has an internal vote, they’re worried about voter fraud. You just can’t make this stuff up.
This is the party that chants “Racism!” at the mention of voter ID. This is the party that wants legal identifications for illegal immigrants, according to International Business Times, but not for voters.
New DNC Chairman Tom Perez, who was U.S. secretary of labor during former President Barack Obama’s second term, was elected on the second ballot. Prior to the 2016 presidential election, Perez led the fight against voter ID laws in Texas and South Carolina, arguing that such laws discriminate against minorities, according to The Washington Post.
So it’s safe to say that while the Democrats’ hypocrisy is clear, we can look forward to another shellacking of the truth on this issue.
Democrats demonstrated without a doubt that voter identification is critical to maintaining the integrity of the polls. Brazile’s closing comment said it all: “Remember to sign your ballot. And please make it legible.”
The party of do-as-I-say-and-not-as-I-do has spoken. Let’s savor — and remember — this moment.
