Former Rhode Island governor Lincoln Chafee recently announced that he wants to be the Democrats’ 2016 presidential candidate.
In July 2011, Governor Chafee signed a bill that requires voters to show photo ID.
In March 2012, Obama’s Justice Department blocked Texas’s voter ID requirement, claiming that it was “racist.”
However, the very same Justice Department requires photo ID for everyone who enters.
So let’s say that someone is denied their right to vote because they don’t have voter ID, and they want to file a lawsuit at the Justice Department. But because they don’t have photo ID, they can’t get into the Justice Department in the first place!
In this video, beginning at 2:39, we see that Obama’s Justice Department requires photo ID for everyone who enters:
The same video also shows that you need photo ID in order to enter other liberal organizations which claim that requiring voter ID is “racist,” including the Advancement Project (at 1:38), the Center for American Progress (2:08), and the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law (2:23).
At a July 2012 NAACP event, NAACP President Ben Jealous claimed that requiring voter ID was “racist.” However, at that very same event, the NAACP required photo ID in order to get into the event in the first place!
Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Britain, India, and South Africa all require photo ID in order to vote, but U.S. liberals don’t consider those countries’ requirements to be “racist.”
In January 2012, Illinois passed a law which requires buyers of drain cleaner to show photo ID, but liberals didn’t accuse this requirement of being “racist.”
In June 2012, Michelle Obama required photo ID in order to attend her book signings, but liberals didn’t accuse her of being “racist.”
In June 2012, Barack Obama required photo ID in order to attend his campaign events, but liberals didn’t accuse him of being “racist.”
This article from Politico includes the following photograph of a labor union that requires photo ID in order for its members to vote, but liberals didn’t accuse this union of being “racist”:
In my opinion, requiring photo ID is never “racist.”
However, I would like liberals to please explain why it is “racist” when conservatives do it, but not “racist” when liberals do it.
Anyway, according to liberals’ own “logic,” Lincoln Chafee is a “racist.” Why would they want him to be president?
