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.

Meanwhile Cokie and her ilk call 99% voter turnout in certain ´urban´ districts as evidence of a great ´Turn Out the Vote´ effort rather than obvious and incontrovertible evidence of voter fraud.

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.

Cokie is right. Black voters will have to give up the right to vote six times and can not get on more than one union-funded bus to a polling place. Downright evil.

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

Interest was largely lost in that story as well on the part of the people that are responsible for deciding what goes on the news. OREILLY: So did they tell you, look, we don´t want

AUGUSTA, Ga. — The slow and awkward decay of the powerful aura of Tiger Woods continued here Tuesday on a rain-soaked golfing cathedral that smelled like a damp towel. For the first time in 20 years, Woods will not be here for the Masters, a tournament he has won four times, his virtual ownership of Augusta National symbolizing his decades of dominance. Yet his fellow golfers do not sound relieved. They do not act as if reprieved. They spoke of this giant, haunting presence with neither fear nor reverence.(Snip)"He´s 38 now, he´s an old man," said Jason Day, the media

Another day, another terrifying computer security vulnerability. A hole in a widely used encryption technology has given hackers a way to infiltrate many of the world’s largest websites and download sensitive information from their servers without leaving a trace. The problem, dubbed Heartbleed, has existed for two years, but was recently discovered by researchers at Google, setting off a scramble to fix it. Trying to track new security vulnerabilities can be dizzying, but here’s why this one is worth paying attention to: It affects services you use. The problem is a shortcoming of OpenSSL, which is supposed to protect,

A U.N.-commissioned panel says climate change is hurting the growth of crops, affecting the quality of water supplies and forcing wildlife to change the way it lives – but what if it’s all just smoke and mirrors? A new report from the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC), written by an international collection of scientists and published by the conservative Heartland Institute, claims just that, declaring that humanity´s impact on climate is not causing substantial harm to the Earth. (Snip)The panel of scientists says human impact on the global climate is small, changing temperatures are within a historic scope

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
