Desperate for the glory days of the civil rights movement (you know . . . when liberals actually had a cause), the DTH published a heartwarming editorial today blasting the recent House vote which, if approved by the Senate, will require citizens to show a photo ID before voting.
If you have a lot a spare time on your hands and would like to be entertained you can read it here:
The questionable practicality of their argument is a mute point.
However, on the eve of “race relations week” I found myself disgusted by the editorial board’s claim that the legislation will “make voting significantly tougher for target groups. Namely poor people, blacks, Latino, the elderly, victims of natural disasters, and other groups who currently do not have the reason, the transportation, or perhaps the money to purchase a photo ID.” (emphasis added)
You heard it hear first. Apparently, according to the DTH, some races and ethnicities have a natural inclination to not have photo IDs. It must be genetic . . .
While I would “never accuse” the far left of manipulating and demeaning minorities with the invention of such stereotypes in order to get elected, one “does have to wonder” if the Bob Johnsons, Oprah Winfreys, and Alex Rodriguezes of the world would agree that attaining a photo ID is one of the many struggles of their races.
Good job DTH . . . can’t wait for your coverage of next week.
