Cokie Roberts: ‘What’s Going on
With Voter Rights is Downright Evil’

Mediaite, by Evan McMurry

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 8/26/2013 11:36:03 AM

On This Week With George Stephanopoulos Sunday morning, Cokie Roberts attacked the GOP’s recent slew of legislation increasing voting restrictions as “downright evil,” and argued that it threatened to undue the progress made since the civil rights movement. “Having grown up in the deep south in the era of Jim Crow, the difference is dramatic,” Roberts said. “The fact that Andy Young was Mayor of Atlanta and John Lewis is a member of Congress from Georgia, is a great testament to the fact that when you do something like pass a voting rights bill, that it makes a difference.

Her Cokieness: long past her Sell By date.

Evil is those black thugs beating up that 88 year old veteran and murdering the 99 year old woman in her home. That is evil.

There is a federal election every two years.
If you can´t come up with enough scratch in that amount of time to get a picture ID card, you probably shouldn´t be voting anyway.

These lunatics have no idea what evil is.

Evil is wrong, but in a world of moral relativism, where there is no right and wrong, how would you know evil if you saw it? In that world, the world of the secular progressives (many of which are Catholics in name only), evil becomes what you disagree with.

I wonder what type of ID she had to present the last time she visited the White house?

I wonder if she´s ever had to wear one of those lanyard type things with a plastic picture ID attached? Any employer who requires them won´t let even a well-known employee in the door unless the ID is presented. I bet everyone at the Department of Injustice wears them. I know everyone at the White house wears them. Postal employees are required to have a picture ID. I bet there not a government entity --from small town to inside the Beltway, that doesn´t require the picture ID. Are all of those government entities evil.

And the loony old hag is talking about "voter rights." I wonder what stand she takes on my Voter Right to have my vote counted and validated and not invalidated by an illegal who´s being paid as part of 0b@$tard´s Fraud Machine?

So, Cokie, you must be saying that black people are too lazy, too stupid, or too shiftless to obtain free, government-paid photo ID in order to comply with Voter ID Laws?

Maybe you should state your position that way.

Last year an Obama voter called into a local radio talk show to complain about voter ID laws. The host asked him if he tried with all his efforts to get an ID for the next 3 months would he be able to do it.
The host recommended talking to friends, neighbors, the local NAACP, Congressmen, Governor, etc.. The guy paused a moment and said ´No - it´s impossible to get an ID´´. That´s the mentality we´re up against.

Does Cokie think it is racist to show her ID when she travels on a commercial plane or AMTRAK? Does she think it is racist when she cashes a check at the local 7-11 and the cashiers asks for an ID? Does she think the pharmacist is racist when Cokie purchases Sudafed for nasal congestion and is asked for an ID and sign a log. Democrats don´t want to have people show IDs at the election booth so they can continue to disenfranchise conservatives. In Maryland we had Democrat Wendy Rosen running for Congress and illegally voting in more than one state during national elections. For her illegal actions she received a slap on the wrist. Voter fraud happens often and almost exclusively by the Democrat party. Perhaps purple ink on the thumb is what is needed to stop voter fraud.

Cokie apparently thinks it is evil to stop liberals and socialists from voting multiple times and that dead liberals and socialists should be able to vote after they die.

There is no logical reason, other than the above, to be against voter ID.

What Cokie is condescendingly saying, I believe in a racial way, is that the blacks, after 50 years of complete civil rights still can´t accomplish such a simple thing as getting an ID card, so they need different rules to help them.

Would someone please remind this harridan that Jim Crow laws were instituted and applied by Democrats. "These conservative, white, Democratic Redeemer governments legislated Jim Crow laws, segregating black people from the white population. Blacks were still elected to local offices in the 1880s, but the establishment Democrats were passing laws to make voter registration and electoral rules more restrictive, with the result that political participation by most blacks and many poor whites began to decrease.” *From: Struggle for Mastery: Disfranchisement in the South, 1888–1908.

Being a Leftist means being able to say whatever makes you feel superior, compassionate and morally righteous without having to explain yourself or defend your claims. Yet how interesting and informative would be if people like Cokie Roberts were interrogated by an objective inquirer and asked to give an account of their extravagant and preposterous claims. When Colin Powell, for example, said that the Zimmerman verdict was "questionable," a serious interviewer would have asked him just what he meant by that and how he had come to the conclusion. It is quite remarkable, though not surprising, how Leftists are routinely permitted to declare, proclaim, pronounce and announce the strangest things, without ever being asked (by other Leftists, the journalists) to defend or explain their positions. The so-called Middle Ages were way ahead of us in such matters, for in the disputatio and quodlibeta claimants to intellectual, moral and theological knowledge had to be prepared to answer tough questions from serious adversaries. But our Leftist journalists, besides being Leftist, are neither educated nor intelligent enough to explore political claims in the manner and depth they deserve, instead simply settling for and reporting an opinion.

When it came to finding evidence in the Indiana case (where the Supreme Court approved of photo IDs for use at polling places) the Democrats simply couldn´t find anyone who didn´t have an ID and couldn´t vote.

The whole issue is an extreme far leftwingtard hallucination ~ nothing more than that. They give away their hard narcotics habits by bringing it up.

Cokie is well acquainted with how the Democrats steal elections through the voting process. Bring in minorities when no one else is allowed in the polling place. Pay them, show them who to vote for or vote for them. If the registered voter does not make it to vote, vote for them. It´s really easy and the Democrat way.

Cokie is saying low income blacks and Hispanics need special rules because they cannot find their way to the places where they can get an allowed picture ID. Somehow these same people can produce a picture ID to go to the Social Security office to sign up for benefits. But not for voting.

Remember her maiden name is Boggs. Enough said.

Cokie Roberts should know. "Having grown up in the deep south in the era of Jim Crow..." Her father was a racist Democrat who signed the Southern Manifesto condemning desegregation in the 1950s and opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964. These people always act as though they were the champions of civil rights; when in fact they were the ones that the fight was against.

WASHINGTON — Stepping into a heated debate within the nation’s intelligence agencies, President Obama has decided that when the National Security Agency discovers major flaws in Internet security, it should — in most circumstances — reveal them to assure that they will be fixed, rather than keep mum so that the flaws can be used in espionage or cyberattacks, senior administration officials said Saturday. But Mr. Obama carved a broad exception for “a clear national security or law enforcement need,” the officials said, a loophole that is likely to allow the N.S.A. to continue to exploit security flaws both to crack

LAS VEGAS -- The Bureau of Land Management has announced it will stop the roundup of cattle owned by rancher Cliven Bundy. The BLM says the animals have been illegally grazing on public lands for 20 years. The BLM made the announcement Saturday morning, a week after rangers started gathering the animals from land near Gold Butte. The agency says it is concerned about the safety of its employees and the public. Earlier this week, BLM officers and supporters of the Bundy family were involved in a scuffle. Cliven Bundy´s son, Ammon Bundy, was tased twice by federal agents. Another woman said

The teens responsible for the mob violence in downtown Louisville last month were members of a gang of middle-school students, according to an FBI memo distributed to law enforcement agencies. The memo, which the FBI says was based on "unverified intelligence," says that the gang — "Young ´N Off That," or YNO, was organized last summer at Frost Middle School but spread to other schools, and that its members are "armed in a major way." The FBI memo also says there have been "rumblings" about the gang showing up in large numbers May 1 at the Kentucky Derby Festival Pegasus Parade. Louisville

IN A major development in the search for MH370, Angus Houston has confirmed the Ocean Shield has detected signals consistent with aircraft black boxes, describing the lead as the most promising yet. Air Chief Marshal Houston called the development significant, saying “this is the most promising lead, probably in the search so far, it’s probably the best information we’ve had”. The search coordinator told reporters more signals have been detected by a towed pinger locator deployed by the Australian vessel Ocean Shield. “Today, I can report some very encouraging information which has unfolded over the last 24 hours,” he told

THE missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 may have flown around Indonesian airspace on the night it disappeared, in what may have been a deliberate attempt to avoid radar detection. CNN reported a senior Malaysian government source saying that the missing jet made the detour after it had left the range of Malaysian military radar. The latest details emerged as new satellite calculations put the likely location of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 in the same spot where Chinese patrol vessel Haixun 01 detected sounds coming from about 4,500m underwater on two consecutive days.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd. But

Hillary Clinton was the planned keynote speaker at the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy in San Diego on April 11 - but she´s cancelled her visit in the midst of planned protests from San Diego locals and military families. Protestors organized by "The Difference Matters" do not want the former U.S. Secretary of State to come because of Clinton´s role in the Benghazi scandal. "She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don´t want her here," said Jan Iverson, a local mother and protestor. (Snip) Clinton´s office says she changed plans because of

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

As President Obama spoke of old "wounds” at Fort Hood this week, the White House declined a request from a survivor of the 2009 massacre there to meet with Obama for a few minutes so the veteran could explain face-to-face how he believes the government has mistreated and disrespected the victims of that attack. Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford (ret.) was shot seven times in November 2009 when Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood, killing 13 people. Despite Hasan’s admission that he carried out the attack on behalf of the Taliban and revelations that he had been

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven
