NAACP Takes Bid to Ensure US Ex-Con Voting to UN

Jamey Keaten, Yahoo! News, September 26, 2012

The NAACP is taking to the U.N. its effort to ensure that all former convicted felons in the United States can vote.

A delegation from the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People was holding meetings Tuesday at the United Nation’s Geneva office in part to press the world body to send observers to the U.S. for this year’s elections.

The diplomatic push comes against the backdrop of a related—and vigorous—debate about requirements in some states for would-be voters to provide proper identification before they can cast ballots.

The NAACP says nearly 6 million U.S. citizens are barred from voting because of previous felony convictions. According to The Sentencing Project, an advocacy group that seeks policies to make it easier for felons to vote, the United States has the world’s largest prison population—2.2 million—and more than 60 percent of inmates are ethnic or racial minorities.

In a statement, the NAACP said it sent a first delegation to the U.N. Human Rights Council in March “in the face of a mounting attack on voting rights in the United States.” {snip}

  • Another attempt by the left to bring the US under the control of the UN.

    These people are shameless. They would destroy the US to push their egalitarian agenda.

    • RisingReich

       Destroying the US IS the agenda.

      Repeat – destroying the US IS THE AGENDA.

    • John Bonham

       Has nothing to do with bringing the U.N in control, per se .. It has everything to do with keeping their man, and future democrat presidents in control ..
      NAACP Has anyone had enough of the criminal enterprise yet ?

    The naacp never was a real American organization from their beginning. So it’s very much in character for them to go outside our system to get what they want. Doesn’t matter though. Their time is about up. Interesting though how black people are they’re completely unaware of the thin ice they’re on.

    Most states allow felons to vote after they are out of prison and through with probation.

    The NAACP knows most of these black felons won’t actually vote.  But their presence on the voter registration rolls will make vote fraud easier and “seemingly” legal.  (After hours, black poll worker notices that Ja’quon D’Felony hasn’t come in and voted yet, so she casts a ballot for him and votes for Obama. And since Ja’quon D’Felony really exists and is really registered to vote, it is all but impossible to prove that the vote cast in his stead was voter fraud.)  Any effort to swell the voter registration rolls for its own sake is done so to make voter fraud easy and almost impossible to prosecute.

    The real voter fraud scandal is after hours voting, not necessarily absentee, though there’s a lot of problems there, too. Cops should seize boxes from problematic precincts and physically transport them to wherever in the county they need to be taken to be counted, so that there is no chance of after hours stuffing.

    • Detroit_WASP

      LOL  True.  One of my cousins from a southern state is in prison for voter fraud.  He is a Democrat, poll worker and was doing just what you said.  He and 5 other people got 17 years for that!!!

      I was watching FOX news and saw his face flashed across the screen.  Almost fell out of my chair.  What an idiot he is.  Classic retired state worker, pro union and govt., had it made with a great pension.  He was about 65 years old when this happened and should have known better.

      He was also accused of robbing a bank back in the 70s but got out of that one.

    • John Bonham

       Ja’quon D’Felony >> Lmao, I spit  my coffee all over my laptop ..

  • The Worlds Scapegoat

    “The NAACP is taking to the U.N. its effort to ensure that all former convicted felons in the United States can vote.”

    So I guess the UN is higher than the Supreme Court. I noticed they have a blue and white flag. Can you name another organization that has their hands in US politics and has a blue and white flag?

    • RisingReich

       Star of David anyone?

    • The__Bobster

      Except for the flag colors, I’d say Mexico.

    • blight14

       Why yes I can……and they also contributed largely to the founding of the NAACP……just don’t mention that aloud………

  • Defiant White

    It fits with the myth that blacks are persecuted by the white juzztizz system.  Those really aren’t criminals.  They are victims of our raciss society. 

    But more importantly to the National Assocaition for the Advancement of Colored Profits, is that most of these jail-birds come from very specific Democratic districts.  The more colored voters, the more chance of gerrymandering more ridiculous voting districts so the Congressional Black Caucaus can have more members.

    In other words, it’s a scam.

    • But look on the other side of that coin.  Who benefits and loses when blacks are isolated in their own little electoral sandboxes?

  • The link has already been broken looks like within 30 min of being posted

  • Soon we will be living in a lowest common denominator society. Every standard will be based on the black man’s ability to meet that standard,  everything will revolve around accommodating the black. Instead of striving to be the best, we will all be lumped in with the worst.

  • Article was pulled from Yahoo news.  Too bad.  Probably had too many comments that weren’t full of white guilt.

    If the NAACP doesn’t like black people being barred from voting, perhaps they can address the issue of black people committing felonies.

    • MekongDelta69

      Yahoo is a bastion of leftism. I’m surprised the article was left up for even an hour. They pulled it b/c they didn’t like the non guilt-ridden, self-loathing comments from rational white people.

    • 5n4k33y3s

      It should be violent felons who can’t vote, not those who are felons merely for drug possession. 

      • I agree.  See my comment above though—even the definition of “violence” has been perverted in modern criminal law.  The War on Drugs looked like a great way to increase 13th Amendment Legal Slavery for a while…. but now it’s just such an ingrained part of the welfare system (jobs for guards, prison building contractors, construction workers, service industries, etc.) that they can’t stop it.  They have to keep building prisons—it’s the fastest growing industry in America…..”the correctional services” industry…. 100% part of the welfare system.  

      • John Bonham

         I take it you’re in it for Obama and the likes ??  Most of the prison population is black/hispanic,  a nifty democrat machine, so to speak .. I’m sure they will all be voting democrat .. Is this what you mean , or want ?

  • Some countries send their best to the UN, the USA sends a delegation of NAACP race huslers.

  • MekongDelta69

    Hey – that’s discrimination.

    You left out illegal aliens, dead people, animals, fictional characters, non-citizens and all the poor ‘oppressed’ minorities, who are too hopeless, hapless and helpless to make that ‘unbelievably difficult’ trip down to get a FREE photo ID, so they can vote – a few times.

  • Ulick

    Black leaders always take the exact opposite approach that all other thoughtful leaders would.  If a facially neutral law prevented an alarming number of “my people” from voting because they’re felons, my thought wouldn’t be to excuse their criminal actions and change the facially neutral law.  My thought would be to try to get less of “my people” from being felons.  Yet black leaders seldom if ever take that approach.  Maybe they realize that criminal activity in the black community is natural and can’t be prevented.

    •  Blacks would have to be introspective, admit their failings and not let their egos get in the way.  I other words, it ain’t gonna happen.

    • 5n4k33y3s

      “Maybe they realize that criminal activity in the black community is natural and can’t be prevented.”

      No, it’s not that. It’s just that they’ve acquired whole neighborhoods and cities based on their appreciation and enthusiasm for black crime.

  • tickyul

    Well, Tyrone can have my vote…..not worth much anymore I am afraid.

  • That’s the short term goal. The long term goal is to supplant the US Constitution with UN law.

    • And that is why EVERYONE should object—I disagree that imposition of UN Power is “a long term goal”—the UN Small Arms Treaty Conference last July was all about trying to impose UN Law over and above the Second Amendment. As Ayn Rand predicted in the 1940s, the regulatory state generates a legal code so complex that EVERYONE is potentially a criminal if you just dig deep enough. 
      In the USA, a felony conviction can be obtained against people who own guns without licenses, have fights with members of their families in which no one is injured, or who mis-state their social security numbers—I’ve got some personal experience that last one and with just how abusive the US Judicial system really is.  An interesting aspect of the Thirteenth Amendment, and an interesting historical coincidence, is that it abolished slavery or involuntary servitude except as a punishment for a crime.  
      It seems to me that the USA is already well on the way to trying to realize Ayn Rand’s prediction: to make EVERYONE a criminal by the proliferation of codes and regulations.  
      My sister-in-law was telling me about her little second or third year old son (in Austin Texas), being required to remember and recite all the things for which licenses are required, and at least according to the teachers in their little private school, you have to have a license to own a dog.  A LICENSE TO OWN A DOG?  Driving without a license is a misdemeanor but you repeat a misdemeanor several times and it becomes a felony.  How many “felons” in the future will be convicted for owning unlicensed dogs?  It sounds funny to say it out loud and it would be funny if it weren’t so serious.  What the NAACP is saying is that it LIKES the system where everyone is a potential Felon and the GOVERNMENT gets to choose the degree of stigma they want to attach to any particular crime or category of crimes and for what purposes.  By enhancing the population of “felons” the government can then enhance its generosity towards some and its punitive wrath towards others. A Felony in Early English Law meant any crime punishable by death or mutilation and forfeiture of lands and goods.  Forfeiture laws were unimportant in the USA for a very long time, but in the past 30-40 years, they have become increasingly common and important, and involve part of the plan to abolish Private Property in fulfillment of one of the Communist Manifesto’s key goals…. If you haven’t read the Communist Manifesto of February 1848 recently—reread it—it’s amazing how little remains to be accomplished.  Is there any real doubt that Obama sees himself as the first “Dictator of the Proletariat” in North America?

       Seriously, I think you’re giving blacks too much credit .. I don’t think they are smart enough to even think in that way.. Now, if you want to go with someone told them this is what they have to do, then I can go along with that idea ..

  • The negro felon isn’t going to vote unless you give him liquor, smokes adn $20, the DNC will go broke.

    • John Bonham

       Nah, they’ll just tell their messiah to print more dollaz yo ..Ya feel me ?

  • humptydumpty

    Tom – When the bottom falls out of this nation, there’s going to be some very hard things done and the blacks are ill prepared for hard realities. Sure, there’ll be a whole lot of White people in the same boat, but the blacks will be 100% at the mercy of others, and there’ll be very little mercy shown them. 

  • John Bonham

     All you have to do is, drive down any Martin Luther King Blvd. In ANY city,
    ( they all have one ) and you will see that blacks have no shame..

  • Best thing that can happen now is for Romney to lose big and for a new non-interventionist, non-Randian, anti-immigration party to form from its ashes somehow.

    Still voting for him .. but just saying, this isnt working, electorally. Mitt is doomed.

    The biggest patch of thin ice for blacks is their complete blindness to the problem they’ve encouraged with mestizo Latin American immigration. The Latin Americans are already 17% of registered voters and around 25-30% of the population. They hang with blacks politically *today* to demand more of whitey’s stuff, but that will soon come to an end when they comprise a larger percentage and can vote solely their own interests.

    The Latins have absolutely no patience for black pathologies. Look at LA. Areas that just twenty years ago were 90% black are today 90% mestizo. The mestizos have chased the blacks from their homes just as the blacks chased whites from their homes. The blacks have absolutely no lever of control over the mestizos such as they have over whites with white guilt or street violence. The mestizos are unafraid of the street violence – indeed they just escalate it and chase the blacks away. The mestizos obviously have no white guilt. And the mestizos are both more intelligent (based on IQ studies) and more populous (and growing *much* faster) than blacks.

    The future is very dim indeed for blacks in this country. It would be wonderfully ironic if it were not so depressing due to the fact that whites will see the USA become another Latin American country. The sole ray of sunshine here is that *every* Latin country is run on a racial caste system where whites occupy the highest positions and professions with mestizos in middle management and Indians in labor (blacks are mainly just ostracized completely as in Panama where they get one city and are effectively banned from the rest of the country).

    Demographics is destiny.

  • Stan_Mute

    Look around you in Miami. The blacks are sequestered in Overtown and Little Haiti and other pockets like North Miami Beach. The Latins have no patience nor tolerance for their misbehavior. When there was a ruckus about the seven black criminals shot by Miami-Dade Police last year, MDP simply stopped law enforcement in the black community. Look at the *massive* police response by Miami Beach PD during urban spring break or whatever they call it. Even the Cubans with more obvious black ancestry are pushed out of the Cuban society and power structure.

    Colon

  • Stan_Mute

    If there is, I don’t know it. Generally though, I think all whites in South Florida who have lived or know the history of the past twenty years are race realists. Many have abandoned South Florida for Central or even Northern Florida – fleeing only to temporarily delay the impending demographic tidal wave which we have created. Others, like myself and presumably you too, hunker down trying to make the best of it and support our families. It might be different if the economy were different, but today you cannot take any chances due to the political correctness police.

  • Stan_Mute

    Ironically, even our government says to stay out of Colon: travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/cis/cis_994.html

    This irony truly is delicious!

  • SFLBIB

    The Democratic Party is composed of a coalition of society’s flotsam and jetsam. The last thing we need is to allow law-breakers to join that coalition and influence legislation to make their crimes into not crimes.

  • Only a couple of States make it harder for people convicted of Felonies to vote. However, in all other States they get back the right to vote  as soon as they’re discharged from prison or probation. I believe that the six million figure is not correct as it includes those in jail . I believe that those in jail deserve some punishment and not being allowed to vote while in jail is a minor and appropriate punishment. I believe that the NAAP wants these jailed people to vote.
    However, the Felony Statutes should be upgraded  to a more uniform standard of  equity because almost anything is classified as a Felony now  on the State and Federal level  and Felony doesn’t mean anymore violent crime like it used to. For instance last year President Obama pardoned two people. One had cut a penny in a half (mutilated a coin!!!) the other had caught the wrong fish in Alaska (protected fish). There are numerous case of this non sense.

    Final thought: Don’t assume that all these people seeking relief are Black, Spanics or other minorities and that all of them are Democrats. There are millions of Whites also in that category. Fair is Far.
