Why does MoveOn.org have such a low opinion of Democrat voters? It appears they think Democrat voters lack patience, are lazy and stupid.
You might say; those are pretty strong accusations. What proof do you have to back up such incendiary claims?
Just this. I receive alerts from time to time from our friends at the reasonable, middle-of-the-road group, MoveOn.org.
A few days ago I received one asking me to stop by Democrat Congresswoman Carol Shea Porter’s New Hampshire reelection campaign headquarters in Manchester to support their fight. What fight?
Well, the alert stated that MoveOn recently, “Launched a Defend the Vote Campaign”. That sounds nice. Who wouldn’t want to defend the vote? Naturally, being a voter, I too would like to defend my right to vote. So what do they feel the need to defend exactly?
The alert continue: since the launch, “thousands of MoveOn members have signed petitions and made phone calls to our representatives to cosponsor and improve the “Voting Rights Amendment Act”.
Today, we are to stop by Shea Porter’s headquarters and ask that she cosponsor this amendment, for you see, mean Republicans and conservatives, in more and more states, are instituting new voter identification requirements.
Get out! Yes, as unthinkable as that is, some would require those who vote to actually prove who they are.
Why only Carol Shea Porter’s office? Easy, because she and MoveOn are of like mind and as she stated two years ago, “I am very grateful to MoveOn membership for endorsing me again…” They do so every election cycle and she receives at least 97% of MoveOn votes in New Hampshire.
Okay, what else?
The alert states that without action, there will be fewer polling places and longer waits just to cast your ballot.
You mean you can’t just call in or text your vote using your Obamaphone? Apparently not. This is serious!
Evidently, according to the alert, it will “prevent women, the elderly and people of color from casting their ballot“.
So let’s see if I understand. MoveOn and by extension Shea Porter, are of the opinion that women, the elderly and minorities lack even rudimentary patience, are lazy and incredibly stupid. Does that about sum it up?
So therefore they must think that us conservative white men are the only ones smart enough to find a polling place. We must be the only ones capable of getting ourselves to a DMV to receive an ID and white guys are the only citizens with the patience to wait in line to cast our ballot. Gee, I feel pretty good about myself.
This must be what they think. They said so in the alert.
Well, as a white guy, I would just like to say that we conservative males don’t think that all women, geriatrics and minorities are stupid and lazy as MoveOn and Shea Porter seem to think.
If there happen to be any women, elderly or people of color reading this, I’m sorry that they have such a low opinion of you.
If you can figure out how to get up off your couch and open the front door maybe you could stumble in on a conservative or tea party group that will take you in.
No IQ test required.
