According to a letter from a lawyer for the State of North Carolina to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), a speaker at a recent NAACP conference in North Carolina urged audience members to mislead the NAACP’s own members into believing they do not need to register to vote in advance, or that they do not need to vote at their assigned polling place. Why?  The letter alleges: To create confusion and animosity during the upcoming mid-term elections in North Carolina, and to use the evidence of that confusion in the ongoing litigation between Eric Holder’s Justice Department and North Carolina and to show that North Carolina’s election integrity laws are discriminatory. From the letter:

It is also our understanding that during the [NAACP conference], Rev. Barber urged those in attendance to take unregistered voters to vote during the Early Voting period and to engage in get-out-the vote activities that included transporting registered voters to vote in precincts in which they are not assigned to vote on Election Day, or words to that effect. The stated purpose for these activities, as I understand it, was to gather evidence for and thereby enhance plaintiffs prospects of success in the litigation involving [North Carolina’s Election Integrity Laws].

  • Not so long ago, with this and every other similar voter fraud story, I would have really been incensed.

    I can’t be mad anymore because I know that voter fraud is an inevitable byproduct of democratic republicanism. Likewise, the problem of too much money corrupting elections is the same.

    A year ago, if you would have asked me what is abhorrent about voter fraud, and my answer would have been fraud. Now, my answer is voter. Can’t steal elections if there are no elections, and you can’t ruin politics by flooding money into political campaigns if there are no political campaigns.

    Ending democratic republicanism kills these two (and many more) birds with one stone.

      Totalitarian messianic democracy.

      JL Talmon.

      From the Wiki…

      “A totalitarian democracy, says Talmon, accepts “exclusive territorial sovereignty” as its right. It retains full power of expropriation and full power of imposition, i.e., the right of control over everything and everyone. Maintenance of such power, in the absence of full support of the citizenry, requires the forceful suppression of any dissenting element except what the government purposely permits or organizes. Liberal democrats, who see political strength as growing from the bottom up (cf: “grass roots”), reject in principle the idea of coercion in shaping political will, but the totalitarian democratic state holds it as an ongoing imperative.

      A totalitarian democratic state is said to maximize its control over the lives of its citizens, using the dual rationale of general will (i.e., “public good”) and majority rule. An argument can be made that in some circumstances it is actually the political, economic, and military élite who interpret the general will to suit their own interests. Again, however, it is the imperative of achieving the overarching goal of a political nirvana that shapes the vision of the process, and the citizen is expected to contribute to the best of his abilities; the general is not asked to guide the plow, nor is the farmer asked to lead the troops.”

      There appears to no longer exist a viable political movement that sounds more like Talmon’s “liberal democrats”…

      • A system where three wolves and a lamb vote on what’s for supper is a really bad system if you’re a lamb, as white people are increasingly becoming.

          It may turn out to be 3 jackals and a Siberian tiger. Time will tell.

            Indeed.

          I met a few dyed-in-the-wool White Femi-crats doing field service calls lately. If only the knew their purpose as ‘useful idiots’. I have a mixture of disdain and pity for them. The black & bronze ones will turn on them for sure. They are the sheep voting with the wolves. Unbelievably, they think pulling the “D” lever will somehow benefit their kids, their daughters in particular. But, that assumption is based on the fantasy that feminism will exist after the black/bronze takeover. It won’t . What fools.

    • Julius Caesar

      The Once and Future King shall return to save the White race! I’m sure of it!

      • Is this a matter of democratic republicanism is dead, long life the king?

        I don’t know if classical monarchy is the right answer.

        The right answer could be some hodgepodge combination of a lot of things, or some new uninvented paradigm.

        But this…isn’t working.

        • Julius Caesar

          Well I’m referring to King Arthur when I say the once and future king. But I myself am a Christian Theocrat, while also be a fascist sympathizer..but that’s besides the point.

          “Representatives” will never represent anyone but those who are paying their freight. People don’t need representatives, they need self-government.

          • You want to know the irony of the matter? People would have more “rights” (real rights, not mentally ill “tranny” men pretending to be women showering with your daughter), and there would be more genuine “self-government” under a system of government that was led by a benevolent populist-nationalist monarch or emperor or autocrat. The more democracy we get, the less free we are.

        • Usually Much Calmer

          Every system is corruptible. ATC, democratic republicanism is pretty fine, IMHO.

          The problem is us. ‘We’ got lazy. The price of liberty is eternal vigilance. ‘We’ are vigilant when the mood strikes and hey, free lunch! when we are not feeling ‘up to it’.

          This laziness goes hand in hand with Michael’s ‘whiffle life’ of last week-when he pointed out that plenty of people think that reality affords them do overs. Nope. Neither does it afford ‘time outs’. Sunday is artificial.

          We are after all, organisms in an ecology and we have to struggle against challenges day in and day out just like every other organism in an ecology. Just because lichen will never play tennis, read a book, or build structures visible from space, it does not follow that humans are excused from pressure of survival.

          The problem is us. We are spoiled rotten lazy brats who have no clue what life asks of survivors. This goes so deep. Angry dudes *here* who rant and rave about the suggestion that the world owes Tommy Duncan a cure for Ebola take it for granted that the world owes them sex and pleasant companionship. Cognitive dissonance much?

          The best thing my parents ever did for me was raising me with the lesson that the world owes me nothing. Apparently they were outliers.

          Why is democracy not working? Operator Error.

      The only way to stop voter fraud is a voter ID law that is enforced. In the small town I live in when you vote there are different tables for precincts, you state your address the book is opened and you state your name, if your name isn’t on the address you don’t vote, I don’t believe you can vote from another town because you won’t be registered and the town has no way of knowing if you are really registered there. Many cities have people who volunteer that knowingly allow illegal votes to be cast.

  • superlloyd

    Machiavllian deviousness of the first order. Ican’t believe that the lawyer was a negro.I would have laughed if this had come to pass and the negroes had not bothered to vote. The lawyer rightly has contempt for the intelligence of black voters: They are more manageable and more stupid than a herd of sheep.

    • Xerxes22

      The Rev. Barber, who made those statements is Black. Most Black leaders and Reverends have absolute contempt for their fellow Blacks. They know how easy it is to con them, manipulate them and fleece them. It’s like taking candy from a baby.

      • superlloyd

        Correct. I’ll amend my comment.

  • dd121

    If the lefties want to create chaos by lawlessly destroying the rules the founders gave all of us, then they’re responsible for the ensuing lawlessness and chaos.

    • They don’t see it that way, and will continue to blame “racism”, guns and greenhouse gases.

    Voter Fraud:

    Just try and read all of it. You’ll go into a coma before you even come close to finishing.

    Voter fraud does not exist. Nor does shoplifting, ID theft, bank fraud or forgery.

    Btw.. I have some ocean-front property in Kansas for sale at a discounted price.

    • A Freespeechzone

      Nor unprovoked attacks, murder, looting and burning—-all figments of racist Whites that just don’t understand that Voter Fraud IS part of payback for being White and competent.

  • Truthseeker

    More lies from Blacks. I’ve gotten to where I take any statement from a Black with a grain of salt. Trust is something that must be earned, and Blacks as a race have too strong a penchant for dishonesty.

    Of course, it’s interesting that they’re trying to tell people they don’t have to register to vote. I’ve been predicting for a while that once they strike down voter ID, they’ll go after voter registration next, because, you know, registration will have a “disparate impact” on Blacks, or something. It’s obvious by now that our laws have become meaningless and we’re slowly descending into Third World chaos. The empowered Marxist Left and the cowards on the Right will sacrifice law and order tomorrow for political victory today.

    The only thing keeping this country afloat is the capital accumulated by our White ancestors. Once that’s all gone, it’ll be time for us to rebuild it…for ourselves, without the baggage of diversity.

    I remember having the occasional discussion with some Amren-ers about how Hugo Chavez won in Venezuela with rigged electronic voting machines, and how it could happen here.

    I went on to say I didn’t trust the New Hampshire voting machine I used. You just get a blinking LED when you vote–a blinking LED for who? Then this comes across the wires today:

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/10/22/calibration-error-changes-gop-votes-to-dem-in-illinois-county/

    I think there was some voter fraud of this nature in 2012, which might explain the 3 million missing Romney votes. Maybe they weren’t missing at all–maybe they were converted into Demo-rat votes?

    • I always use a paper ballot. I mailed mine in last week.

      Paper ballots are subject to abuse as well, but for instilling a complete lack of confidence in voting out that pig Mark Udall, an electronic machine really takes first prize.

  • Telling folks that they do not have to register to vote is completely irresponsible.

    Who is now disenfranchising black voters, NAACP?

    • AndrewInterrupted

      In NH you didn’t have to register, but you could still vote. That loophole has finally been tied up.

      • Here anyone getting a driver’s license is asked whether they want to register to vote. Vehicle registration is handled at a separate office, but one can register there as well (I made a special trip to do so as soon as I was off federal probation). I returned to my original habit of voting by mail after a power outage shut down my designated polling precinct in the 2012 election (I hitched a ride to the alternate precinct with some nice people).

  • Earl P. Holt III

    The trousered-apes have been doing exactly THAT since the mid-1960s: The good news is that NO ONE with an I.Q. over 100 even listens to them anymore, except for the communists…

  • Usually Much Calmer

    For nearly a decade I ran a polling place for the #2 boss in Chicago. Absolutely nothing surprises me.

    The polling place is the weak link in the whole process while in person voting still dominates.

    I encourage every single poster, lurker, and first time visitor here to sign up for this work. It is unpleasant. The gig pays, but its not worth it for the money. Do it to keep the responsibility out of the hands of the other guy.

  • Usually Much Calmer

    Thank you for that link.
    It was worth the time and restored my faith in journalism and public discourse.

  • And it would seem an orginization for people of color prefer people of color to keep ignorant.
    Sad. what they have for leaders from Al, Jessy, the black kittens, preaches nothing but fear and deception to thier people. And a confused ignorant people will always resort to violance as a resort to solve any problem.
