Video Podcast – Three Corporations in Georgia make a Monumental Fuss over Georgia’s new Voting Law

by: Brent Smith

Major League Baseball has decided that Georgia is now just too racist to hold both it’s All Star Game and MLB draft in Atlanta.

And the heads of Coca Cola and Delta airlines, both based in Atlanta, have issued strong statements over the racism of this law.

And why you ask? Because Georgia has the nerve to ask for a photo I.D. when casting a mail-in ballot. Oh the horror!

Yet what all three of the major corporation heads neglected to tell the cameras that were filming their heartfelt condemnations, is that in order to gain employment at any of them, guess what you must have. That’s right – a photo I.D.

Ironic ain’t it.

And finally, I pose a question to any and all, but you’ll to watch to discover what it is! read more

Can’t Get In Without It

Do you recall, a few months ago, when attendees to a Obama event had to show a photo I.D. to get in to the arena?

Well the hypocrisy hits just keep on coming and this one’s worse. These people literally have no shame. How could these events keep going unreported? Silly me, it’s the mainstream media. That’s how.

Attorney General Eric Holder addressed the NAACP Nation Convention at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas. What did media need in order to attend? That’s right, government issued photo identification (and a second form of identification too!), something both Holder and the NAACP stand firmly against when it comes to voting. Holder’s DOJ is currently suing Texas for “discriminatory” voter ID laws.

From the press release:

All media must present government-issued photo I.D. (such as a driver’s license) as well as valid media credentials. Members of the media must RSVP to receive press credentials at http://action.naacp.org/page/s/registration. For security purposes, media check-in and equipment set up must be completed by 7:45 a.m. CDT for an 8:00 a.m. CDT security sweep.  Once the security sweep is completed, additional media equipment will NOT be permitted to enter and swept equipment will NOT be permitted to exit.

Ironically, NAACP President Ben Jealous railed against voter ID  just before Holder took the stage.

The head of the NAACP on Monday likened the group’s fight against conservative-backed voter ID laws that have been passed in several states to the great civil rights battles of the 1960s.

Benjamin Todd Jealous, the CEO and president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, said these are “Selma and Montgomery times,” referring to historic Alabama civil rights confrontations. He challenged those attending the NAACP’s annual convention to redouble their efforts to get out the vote in November.

“We must overwhelm the rising tide of voting suppression with the high tide of registration and mobilization and motivation and protection,” he said.

“Simply put, the NAACP will never stand by as any state tries to encode discrimination into law,” Jealous said.

If it weren’t so serious, the absurdity would be funny. It’s like some weird Saturday Night Live skit. The fact that Jealous and especially Holder, can stand before an audience of black people and claim that asking for a photo I.D. to vote is racist yet require not one, but two forms of I.D. to attend this event is just plain arrogant. I guess I should expect no less from the,”Do as I say, not as I do” party. Who did they employ to check the I.D.’s? Maybe the New Black Panthers.

And I’m sure the press dutifully forked over the required “Papers” without even a thought of the irony. But hey, what’s more important, upholding the legal right to vote or attending an NAALCP convention?

Double Standard?

by: Dana Loesch

At a recent Obama rally in Ohio, prospective attendees were told to brandish their photo IDs if they expected admittance to the rally. No word yet on whether Attorney General Eric Holder plans to file suit against the Obama campaign for infringing upon Ohioans’ right of peaceful assembly by way of a racist photo ID rule.

Jessica Kershaw, the Obama campaign’s Ohio Press Secretary, confirmed in a statement to BuzzFeed that the campaign checked every supporter’s identification at the door.

“We checked every ID at the door to make sure it matched with the name on the ticket that supporters filled out,” she said. “We did this for every person who came in.”

Since President Obama sides with Holder in thinking it’s Racist™ for states to require photo identification to vote, he must be apoplectic at himself for discriminating against those who don’t get state-issued photo IDs. By asking for rally-goers to provide photo ID before entry, the Obama campaign is silently sanctioning the effectiveness of photo identification.

What makes a rally different from voter integrity? What makes buying cigarettes, alcohol, renting a car, a hotel room, cashing a check, opening a bank account, membership at the Y, buying cold medicine, or entering a club any different? You check photo identification to protect the thing which such an exchange accesses and to confirm that you are the age you claim. Is a person’s vote less unworthy of protection than buying Sudafed — or attending an Obama rally?

Evidently, for some, it is.
