I discovered this little gem while reading the news. The title of the story is deceiving as well as the quotes they used to tell the story.
The event in question was hosted by Hamilton County Ohio, Democratic Party activists (Cincinnati National Action Network ). They are opposed to Voter ID Laws. The event took place at the Word of Deliverance Church in Forest Park. The people in attendance at the rally are working towards a Constitutional amendment in Ohio that would make voter fraud is easy to commit, hard to detect, and frequent.
What happened was one of the few people to be caught, tried and convicted of vote fraud in the last presidential election, Melowese Richardson was called up to the stage by Cincinnati National Action Network President Bobby Hilton for a "welcome home" from the audience. Those in attendance cheered the convicted felon who was recently released from jail after having her sentence reduced to probation.
The title of the news story is: Both parties jeer embrace of fraudulent voter.
That's not what happened. The truth is that no Democrat "jeered" her. They cheered their butts off. Oh, there were some mundane comments latter about how, "There is some validity that the sentence was too harsh," Faux told the Enquirer. "But I don't see how you can hold her up as an example of somebody to be proud of. What she did was reprehensible." They also called the applauding "problematic" and said Richardson was "not a hero".
After getting in some responsible sounding sound bites from various members of the Democratic political machine, they rationalized the acceptance and glorification of criminal fraud by black liberals by saying: "We did not celebrate or applaud a convicted felon," Hitlon said. "We congratulated a lady with a health issues coming home to take care of her sick sister."
YEAH RIGHT! I thought ObamaCare would take care of the sister.
I have a couple of questions that are racial, religious and political. If a white pastor in a white church held a rally and invited David Duke to the stage and people applauded him, for any reason, what would the media say? Do you think that they would claim that Republicans were "jeering" him? If a white pastor in a white church spoke out against gay marriage, abortion and voiced support for a constitutional amendment enforcing his sincerely held religious views on those topics, what do you think would happen to that church's tax exempt status?
The movement to stop voter ID laws has only one purpose, embedding unfathomable amounts of fraud in the American political process. I should make a comment about which political party is pushing for this and the skin color of those involved. If I did that, I would be called a racist. So, I'll do what the media does and pretend that race, crime and politics are not related.
THE HELL I WILL!
One political party is demonstrably outright corrupt. They lie, cheat, steal and pretend you are too dumb to notice what is going on. They know you will keep voting for them to keep the other guy, who you believe to be worse, out. Democrats on the other hand lie cheat and steel because they think you are too dumb to notice that they are doing it. See the political history Chicago, and Detroit for municipal examples.
Group identity is what drives political parties. It always has been. It always will be. When a group discovers that they are likely to loose power, they look to stack the deck. That's what black Democrats are doing today.
The reason for it isn't because old white conservatives are winning the hearts and minds of America. I suspect that the reason has more to do with the fact that there is now a plurality of racial minorities in America. Blacks are for the blacks. Mexicans are for the Mexicans. Neither group is very keen on the other. Somebody has to be in charge of the Democratic political machine and the good old white boys are loosing their hold.
