Just STFU Already

Hey Texas, Just Ignore Them

Fed Court Blocks Texas Voter ID Law: It’s RAAAAACIST

RCOB. Can’t somebody just drown these idiots like a bag of unwanted kittens? Holy ham on rye. We need ID for everything, from renting a hotel room to borrowing a book from the library. You can’t be a modern citizen without it. Period. So how the flippin flippity flap is having a voter ID racist? What, can’t the my-nar-it-tays drive themselves down to the county to pick one up? They’re free! And everybody else has to go get one too. So what’s the damn beef?

WASHINGTON — A federal court on Thursday blocked Texas from enforcing a strict new voter identification law, ruling that the state had failed to prove that the mandate would not disproportionately suppress turnout among eligible voters who are members of minority groups.

“The State of Texas enacted a voter ID law that — at least to our knowledge — is the most stringent in the country,” the court wrote. “That law will almost certainly have retrogressive effect: it imposes strict, unforgiving burdens on the poor, and racial minorities in Texas are disproportionately likely to live in poverty.”

Yer darn tootin, Newton: Texas is fucking OVERRUN with illegals and needs a seriously stringent system to keep them from illegally voting. But wait, this is the federal government of minority superiority, so let’s turn up Teh Stewpid dial to 11.

The 56-page ruling came days after another three-judge panel in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia ruled that the Texas Legislature had intentionally discriminated against Hispanic voters in drawing up new political maps for Congressional and legislative districts, citing the same section of the Voting Rights Act.

Greg Abbott, the Texas attorney general, called the voter ID decision “wrong on the law” and said that Texas would keep fighting.

“The state will appeal this decision to the U.S. Supreme Court, where we are confident we will prevail,” said Mr. Abbott, who has also vowed to appeal the redistricting case.

Mr. Abbott also noted that the Supreme Court had upheld the constitutionality of a voter ID law enacted by Indiana. Texas, however, bears a higher burden under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act. Under that statute, jurisdictions that have a history of discriminating against minority voters must receive federal approval before making any change to their voting rules and it is up to the state to prove that its change will not dilute the voting power of members of minority groups.

Hey, there’s a double dose of fresh cow flop right there. First, there ain’t no damn HISPANICS in Texas. 5 million illegal MEXICANS, sure. But those guys are not hispanics. They’re Atlatl-Meso-Hispo-Americans, which means they only got a little bit of hispanolic in them, mostly Aztecish. Next up, what gives with the double dealing “higher burdern of proof” law. Is Texas now branded as some racist bad boy forever, who has to get down on his knees and beg and plead against the coastal PC faggots for the right to change state law? Go jump rope in the nude with some barbed wire buddy. That’s not the Texas way. Nor is it the American Way. That part of Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act is unconstitutional. No group can be held to a higher hurdle than any other one: we all get treated the same. Equal protection under the law.

Oh, and By The Way: the federal court ruling is utter bullshit. There is simply no way in Hell that ANYONE can prove that law X, Y, or Z will not change voter turnout ahead of time. Because voters are a fickle bunch. And they could decide they’re just not going to bother this time ... and that itself would kill the new law, wouldn’t it, if that’s the burden of proof the feds are demanding. It’s impossible to meet. So fuck em: ignore their judgment. Any citizen who really wants to vote will make whatever effort is necessary, as long as it doesn’t cost anything other than time and filling out forms.

Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
