If you’re ever desperate to see a liberal lose their ever-lovin’ mind and start foaming at the mouth, just mention the idea of having voters show an ID in order to cast a ballot.
Steam will roll right out of their ears followed by a long string of obscenities with the words “racist” and “bigot” sprinkled on top.
Yes, voter ID laws are seen by the left as the ultimate display of racial prejudice, but only if you’re a conservative.
Apparently if you’re a member of the NAACP, it’s all gravy.
Don’t you love identity politics?According to the Daily Caller North Carolinians marching to protest voter-ID laws must present a valid photo ID to participate in an NAACP-hosted protest against voter-ID laws in Raleigh on Saturday.
The central claim among the protesters is that the voter-ID laws disenfranchise certain segments of the voting population, particularly minority voters and poor voters.
According to official NAACP flyers passed out at the rally, protesters must carry the precise kind of ID that they would be expected to present at the voting booth.

The march, dubbed the “Moral March” by its leader Rev. William Barber II, who called for a “wave of civil disobedience” while railing against education cuts and the voter ID law, is the latest of a series of protests held against the state’s GOP-controlled legislature. Over 900 “peaceful” and “non-violent” protesters have been arrested since the beginning of the state’s legislative session last January. Police have taken a handful of them into custody each week after they obstructed legislators within the capitol building.
So folks who are coming to protest voter ID laws are required to show an ID, and yet, the irony of all this continues to be lost on the left.
Seriously, is there no one in the group who gets how ridiculous and hypocritical this is? That you have to use an ID to voice your grievances with something, but not to cast a vote in choosing the leadership and future direction of the entire nation?
Voter ID laws protect the integrity of our voting system, ensuring that each person who participates is a citizen with skin in the game.
The left hates this because they rely heavily on getting illegals to vote in the election as a part of their base, thus why they are so against securing the border, and bend over backwards to cater to those who are here illegally.
Without this huge segment of the population they wouldn’t be able to win most of the races they run.
