First Patrick Gaspard, executive director of the Democratic National Committee, lied about Florida Republicans. A former union lobbyist, Gaspard said that in Florida, “Republicans have tried to eliminate the early vote.”
Are leading Dems resorting to lies in a desperate move to win in 2012?
Roland Martin didn’t bat an eye at Gaspard's claims.
Next up to the liar’s bat was DNC national chair Debbie Schultz, congresswoman from Florida. Schultz told Martin, “Republicans want to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow Laws.”
She doubled up on that lie, telling Media Research Center TV, “That’s not what I said.”
Democrats are running a ground game to make sure those voter rolls stay fat—dead people, fraud and illegal aliens are apparently welcome.
Voter fraud isn’t just prosecuted at the federal level; it’s also prosecuted on other levels.
Dems are fine with Americans needing a photo I.D. to get a mortgage, cash a check or buy alcohol.
The Dem offensive has gained momentum with U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson (Florida) siccing the Dept. of Justice on his own state. Did pop political media ever investigate Nelson’s questionable political assault? Did he ever read the bill he condemned? Parts of it actually make it easier for people to vote.
Nelson is up for re-election. Florida voters might want to take a hard look at his stance on this matter. What Republicans want is a voting process that ensures votes are valid. That’s it in a nutshell.
On the matter of Jim Crow laws, Democrats have a great deal of guilt over their own party’s role in those laws. Contrary to what some public school teachers and media say, numerous Democrats in the South have been Democrats for generations. The DNC bills the party as the oldest in the U.S. That means the party’s history of racism, in sharp contrast to the Republican Party’s history, is part and parcel of being a Dem.
Even left-leaning PBS admits the role of Democrats in Jim Crow.
Democrats gave a high ranking senator who was a former Klan leader a complete pass on his past.
Roland Martin’s eyes must be glued open. Meanwhile, Schultz can watch herself lie on camera.
