Jonathan S. Tobin has written a good column called The Descent From the March to Voter ID in which he writes, "The myth propagated by the left, and echoed by the Obama administration, that voter ID laws are racist is an attempt to racialize an issue that has nothing to do with prejudice against African-Americans. Whereas once civil rights meant an effort to prevent white racists from stealing elections via laws that literally stopped all members of some groups from voting, now it seems to mean preventing any effort to protect the integrity of the votes of all citizens.
The inappropriate rhetoric employed by Obama, Attorney General Holder
and those charlatans like Al Sharpton who purport now to speak in the
name of the cause of civil rights have debased the coinage of the
rhetoric of freedom that was so nobly advanced by King and others at the
march. The descent of the civil rights movement from outrage at genuine
discrimination to false flag issues like Martin or voter ID shows have
far this nation has come. But it also illustrates the irrelevance of
that movement to the genuine problems that are faced today by
Good job! I am sick and tired of the attacks on voter ID, which are used to prevent voter fraud, and angry at the insults against those of us who support integrity at the polls.
