Bertha Lewis, the former CEO of ACORN, claimed at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network convention on Wednesday that opponents of amnesty and supporters of voter identification laws want to institute in America something similar to South Africa’s apartheid.

President Barack Obama will address the convention on Friday and discuss voting rights issues and voter ID laws.

Speaking on a panel about immigration reform, Bertha Lewis, who is now the president and founder of The Black Institute, noted that America will soon “have a new majority, and that majority will be darker–black, and brown, and Asian.”

Lewis, who headed ACORN until a sting operation orchestrated by the late Andrew Breitbart and James O’Keefe disbanded the organization, said there is a “great fear” of this “new majority.”

She then said those who oppose amnesty and support voter ID laws want to put in place a “throwback” system that “suppresses the vote and the rights of new citizens in this country” so that they can have a “South African apartheid-type thing where the masters of the universe still rule.”

    Au contraire. We just want only living citizens over the age of 18 to vote, and we want each person to vote only once, at the place of their primary residence, in the state of which they are a citizen. Or within the federal district. It says right in the constitutions that person born or naturalized are citizens of the United States and of the state in which they reside.

    Not two states. Not Florida and New York. Not Illinois and Wisconsin, if they own property across the state line. Not in the state where their parents live and the state where they go to school. And we don’t want people who are deceased or who have moved or who have not shown up to vote to be voted by partisan poll workers or external fraudsters. Not to mention, we don’t want boxes full of ballots to be found at a bus stop or in the car trunk of a poll worker every time there is a very close election.

    Is all of this asking too much? Or what?

    • SFLBIB

      Apparently it is too much for some to swallow. Notice, however, none of them complain about having to register.

      • MikeofAges

        Thomas Jefferson noted that the differences between parties are rooted in differences in the constitution of mind and temperament which have existed since the birth of the human race. One type prefers to cheat before via the suppression of the vote. The other during and after, by fraudulent voting and fraudulent counting, I guess.

      • Tom B

        The speech from blacks is getting incrementally more audacious and outrageous. If a mugger with a gun at your head tells you red is actually yellow, are you gonna argue with him? Well, our free speech has been mugged. Our principle compromised and our balls taken away.

        • SFLBIB

          It will remain that way until enough push back against charges of “racism”.

  • I wish Bertha Lewis was right.

    I wish Nancy Pelosi was right when she said a few days ago that the average person who is against amnesty and open borders is secretly packing a white racial agenda.

    I wish the typical “conservative” was even half as racially minded as the MSNBC cabal thinks they already are.

    Ironically, most black callers to Al Sharpton’s own radio show, when Arizona SB 1070 was the hot issue in 2010, were opposed to amnesty and in support of the law.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      Bertha Lewis is one more anti-white soldier fighting for: “The Transformation”. The transformation from white to non-white.

      “The Transformation” is code for white genocide.

      • Tom B

  • Truthseeker

    If apartheid is the only way to have an honest vote, then maybe we need it. My preference, however, would be separate nations living in separate countries. That way they won’t bother us and we won’t bother them.

    • baldowl

      When you say “bother them,” do you mean “feed, house, clothe, employ, and school” them? Who’d have imagined such kindnesses could be construed as bothersome? Only the black brain could interpret charity and tolerance as oppression.

  • Urbane Neanderthal

    They really can’t help but to show that 85 point IQ.

  • Einsatzgrenadier

    Blacks are stupid. Mass 3rd world immigration harms them the most, yet they can’t get enough of it. Allowing more 3rd world immigration will eventually lead to the South African-style apartheid they wish to avoid, followed by the eventual disintegration of the US. In the end, everybody loses, especially blacks.

    • Agree. They miss Africa so much they want to recreate it here on this continent. Over my dead body.

    • Nancy Thomas

      Yes, it’s true, blacks are woefully stupid, since illegals directly steal work from blacks. But blacks hate whitey even more than they hate losing work.

  • mobilebay

    Well, Miss Bertha, I’ll bet that if all the white people left, it wouldn’t be anytime before we’d hear the patter of little feet right behind us. Can you name any successful country run by blacks? As far as illegals go, you’re right. We’d love to see them all reunited in their own countries.

    • Erasmus

      Hell. You only have to look at how well “black” schools work (and towns for that matter) to see how quickly they destroy anything they get their meaty hands on.

  • Puggg

    What, mum’s the word on the whole issue of Sharpton being a mob stool pidgeon at this meeting?

  • What’s wrong with apartheid or segregation? The USA was a far better place when segregation was in place. But then along came the Yankee do-gooders into the south, bringing the SPLC, the NAACP, etc., telling blacks that their rights were being violated. The rest is history–a sad history of uncompetitive blacks who are incapable of succeeding on their own in an advanced technological world. So, we get never-ending government outrages intended to bring whites down or to give blacks unearned benefits.

    It sucks being a responsible white in 2014.

    • Pro_Whitey

      At one time that would not have been my intent, but in recent years I have become resigned to it. Time for a racial divorce. The question is how best to get them to leave, or at least to prevent them from breeding. It would be great if we could convince the blacks to move to Africa and the browns to move down south of the border, but I think it will have to come down to forced birth control/sterilization of those who cannot support their kids, male and female alike. I would even make it a nominally race blind policy, because I know it would have disparate impact. The question is not one of eugenics, but one of realizing that welfare burdens are a form of perpetual indentured servitude to those who have to pay them. We have every right to minimize the amount by which we are pressed into service to support blacks and browns.

    • benvad

      Yankees are a big cause if the problem no doubt about it. But Southern Plantation Barron’s insisted on the cheapest labour choice, and had them brought over by Portuguese traders.

      So there’s enough blame to go around, I just wish we had a crystal ball hundreds of years ago to route all of the lunatics who’re destroying western societies. All in all we only have ourselves to blame, because these parasites weren’t brought over by their own volition.

      We Did it Ourselves! Stupid stupid stupid.

      Good Grief! As Charlie Brown would say.

      • kjh64

        It’s a myth that Southern plantation owners were the only ones who brought the slaves over. The Americas were a British colony and also parts owned by the Dutch, both of whom had slaves taken to their American colonies. When it comes to Americans in the North, New England to be exact, transported many slaves. New York City had many slaves in the 1700’s. As a matter of fact, the first slave traders were from New England.

        • gemjunior

          It’s a real eye-opener when you first begin to read about the most effective merchants in slave trading. I was surprised at how different the real truth is as opposed to the popular tales we all believe and which are not only taught in our schools but through pop culture.

    • “It sucks being a responsible white in 2014.”

      No it does not. Even as an ex-con, I would settle for nothing else.

    One race hustler, speaking at a convention of the co-king of race hustlers (Hi-Jackson is the other co-king), which was attended by the DOJ race hustler yesterday, and was attended today by the High Emperor of all race hustlers.

    So, what were you saying again about segregation and apartheid Big Bertha?

  • Nancy Thomas

    Blacks, including our moron POTUS, are hate filled anti-white bigots.
    And they have a tendency to lie almost all of the time.

  • Photo ID to vote is necessary, and will cut down on some fraud.

    But I think it will be ineffective for most of the fraud that happens.

    It makes you wonder why the Democrats care about the photo ID to vote issue at all, if the fraud that benefits them will still be able to happen.

    There is an answer that riddle.

    The Democrats’ (and tonight, President Obama himself) mouthing off about the evils of photo ID to vote is dog whistling civil rights era rhetoric to elderly black women, in order to drive them out to the polls.

    Big Bertha here didn’t exactly dog whistle, she came right out and said “apartheid.”

    • AndrewInterrupted

      Using the word Apartheid has been a hot, effective propaganda term for the Cultural Marxist commissars.

  • Marc Zuckurburg

    One smart cooky, this Bertha Lewis is.

  • Who Me?

    What’s she doing in that picture? Receiving a communication from outer space?

  • WR_the_realist

    ACORN always consisted of a bunch of left wing crazies determined to stick it to whitey. It speaks volumes that America has elected as president a man who worked as one of their lawyers.

  • “South African apartheid-type thing where the masters of the universe still rule.”

    I thought “Masters of the Universe” referred to bankers, who already rule.

    • TXCriollo

      Anything that stops blacks from lying cheating or stealing is racism,


    I’d like to know how someone gets fired from being president of fraud at one job and immediately surface as president of another. I can recall a time when you got fired, you had to re-start at the bottom [e.g., janitor trainee] in the next company … and that was only if you found one that would hire you.

  • NoMosqueHere

    She then said those who oppose amnesty and support voter ID laws want to put in place a “throwback” system that “suppresses the vote and the rights of new citizens in this country” so that they can have a “South African apartheid-type thing where the masters of the universe still rule.”


    Your mouth to God’s ear, Bertha baby.

    But we have a lot of work to do Bertha, to get to the mountaintop! hallelujah!

  • IstvanIN

    I don’t like ear rings on men, especially dangling ones.

  • gemjunior

    Stupid twat. This is the only country in the entire world where you aren’t required to show ID to vote. That shows how deliberate the entire directed demise of the USA is, deliberately engineered. How can a person take seriously a country where anyone can walk in and vote? BTW, Breitbart was quietly silenced and I believe he was killed. Imagine how out of touch with reality this woman is. Blacks are literally running rampant over the entire nation and every one of it’s institutions, yet can still believe they are being held down. When will whites finally say, alright if that’s what they really want, and it is, perhaps they prefer it. It’s safer that way.

  • gemjunior

    I forgot to add, she’s right, I would love some good old-fashioned apartheid, where there are no Knock Out Kings…

  • If you renounce citizenship, your gun rights go in the same toilet as my own.

  • Erasmus

    When you get businesses, governments and government agencies run by African-Americans, you get Africa: Corrupt, inefficient and a bigger hindrance than asset toward achieving stated goals.

  • Because white people might vote for white people! We canst be haben dat, gnome sayin?

  • Malgus

    Bertha Lewis…. err, is that… a male or female? I can’t tell, honestly..

    Either way, nice neck wattles… reminds me of a turtle. One of those sun-baked ones that you find in the Galapagos Islands. You know, the ones so old they got musket balls stuck in their shells?

    “…so that they can have a “South African apartheid-type thing where the masters of the universe still rule.”

    Yep. You got me. At the last meeting of The Legion of Doom, Me and Solomon Grundy teamed up with Captain Cold and Gorilla Grod and we submitted The White People’s Super Evil Super Secret Master Plan to Rule the World.

    You guys weren’t invited, for obvious reasons…

    But, if you blacks stick around long enough, we’re gonna party like it’s 1799!

  • Sloppo

    The apartheid system seems to work pretty well for the folks in Israel, so we should establish it here.

    • They actually have Arab citizens with full voting rights. Only Jews and Druzes are conscripted into military service, though Christians may volunteer.

      • Sloppo

        I can imagine that it would be tolerable for some Arabs to vote there as long as they don’t have the numbers to determine the outcomes of important elections. If Arab muslim voters gained that kind of power, I believe that would be the end of the state which is called Israel.

      • AndrewInterrupted

        And your second point is very important. America is doing the opposite. They are stacking the military with members of the Grievance Industry Occupation Government. Our enemies. Bertha’s people.

        Demo-rats–>the GIP: (the) Grievance Industry Party.

        It’s the GOP versus the GIP.
