Ex-President Bill Clinton and the AP are at it again, this time from the venue of the Civil Rights Summit at the Lyndon B Johnson Presidential Library in Austin.
Former President Bill Clinton is using the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act to criticize efforts in several states to create new restrictions for voters, saying they threaten to roll back a half-century of progress.
Clinton and the AP, on the occasion of this auspicious anniversary, are beefing about the Supreme Court’s ruling releasing a number of states that had a history of discriminatory voting laws, now that they have accumulated a substantial and substantive history of non-discrimination, from the Federal bondage of having to plead “Mother, may I?” from the Feds before they could update any of their election procedures. The two also are beefing about the increasing number of voter ID laws.
Of course, this is just Progressive nonsense. The efforts “in several states” are to increase restrictions on ineligible voters, for the protection of voters. The only “roll back” that’s going on is of the progress made in the last 50 years enabling the dead to vote, enabling non-citizens to vote, enabling “voters” to vote multiple times and in multiple districts during the same election.
