Racist Illinois Law Requires Photo ID To Buy Draino
January 9, 2012 4 Comments
The 2012 election narrative is being written by Obama and the far left. If Obama loses, the left is already preparing to declare it a loss due to racism. Specifically voter disenfranchisement via picture ID laws. The Supreme Court ruled that requiring a picture ID was not an illegal infringement on voter rights. Not willing to pay attention to the Supreme Court, Eric Holder is going after South Carolina for their picture ID requirement. Apparently requiring a picture ID to vote in South Carolina will disenfranchise black and poor voters. Never mind that the picture ID’s are free.
Apparently blacks, other minorities and the poor are incapable of getting their hands on a free picture ID card. If I were black, an other minority or poor I would be insulted that people like Eric Holder think I’m to incompetent to obtain a free picture ID. But no one in the media is asking any of these people if they’re incapable of obtaining an ID. In fact, the left and the media have yet to come up with a single voter prevented from voting due to these picture ID requirements. In other words, the whole argument is a fraud meant to smear the GOP and taint the 2012 elections.
If it’s racist to require picture ID’s to vote then one wonders if it’s racist to require picture ID’s to buy drain cleaner. The Democrat dominated State of Illinois now requires a picture ID in order to buy Draino and other similar products. A Democrat proposed the bill, the Democrat legislature passed the bill and the Democrat Governor signed the bill. I’m left wondering how blacks in south side Chicago will ever be able to clean their drains since obviously they’re incapable of obtaining one of these racist picture ID’s.
A photo ID is required in most states to purchase tobacco or alcohol. If it’s racist and burdensome for the poor to obtain picture ID’s, one wonders how black, other minorities or the poor obtain beer and cigarettes. Especially so considering how the left always likes to point out how the poor disproportionately purchase tobacco products. How do these people come up with a picture ID, what with all the red tape and burden placed on them, so they can buy cigarettes. Yet the poor somehow manage. Amazingly even blacks and other minorities manage to come up with a real, legal photo ID.
The whole notion that minorities and the poor are incapable of coming up with a photo ID is insulting to the intelligence of such people. It also flies in the face of reason. After all, these people somehow managed to register to vote. Are you telling me that people who figure out how to register to vote can’t figure out how to get a picture ID? Don’t insult my intelligence or theirs.
With all of the other products and services that require a photo ID out there, it’s a wonder how only the requirement for voting is called racist. The reason is clear: The left wants to work minorities and the poor into a frenzy so they’ll vote Democrat. If Obama loses, then the left wants to taint the election and call into the question the results based on phony, non-existent racism. Reasonable people won’t buy this nonsense, unfortunately the far left has never been reasonable.
