RUSH: Voter fraud. This is happening in North Carolina right now with early voting. Listen to this. It’s from Judicial Watch. “According to a letter from a lawyer for the State of North Carolina to the National Association for the Advancement of [Liberal] Colored People (NAACP), a speaker at a recent NAACP conference in North Carolina –” now, wait for this “– a speaker at a recent NAACP conference in North Carolina urged audience members to mislead the NAACPÂ’s own members into believing they do not need to register to vote in advance, or that they do not need to vote at their assigned polling place.”
Let me read this to you again. A speaker at a recent NAALCP conference in North Carolina urged people in the audience to go out and mislead African-Americans. The Republicans are always accused of this stuff. The NAACP urged its members to go tell African-Americans they don’t have to register to vote in advance, and they do not need to vote at their assigned polling place.
Now, why are they doing this? Well, the letter from a lawyer for the state of North Carolina, the NAALCP, alleges they’re doing this “to create confusion and animosity during the upcoming mid-term elections in North Carolina, and to use the evidence of that confusion in the ongoing litigation between Eric HolderÂ’s Justice Department and North Carolina and to show that North CarolinaÂ’s election integrity laws are discriminatory.”
Here’s the upshot. NAALCP members are being told to go all over North Carolina and tell black people, “Hey, you don’t need to register in advance. You can register when you show up. And go anywhere. You don’t have to go to an assigned place.” So that when they get there and are refused the right to vote, they are then to raise hell, call the news media, which will be on call waiting for the call, and raise holy hell about how North Carolina is discriminating against black voters by not letting them vote, and not letting them register.
Nobody is ever supposed to know that this is a strategy. Nobody is ever supposed to know that this is being done on purpose. The desired result is a bunch of God-fearing American citizens, African-Americans show up to vote and are denied the right to vote because they haven’t registered, and they may be showing up at the wrong place. They raise holy hell, they start shouting “discrimination.” This will fit in with an ongoing lawsuit that Eric Holder has against North Carolina for this kind of thing, discrimination. Create mass chaos and confusion and use blunt-force intimidation to relent and let these people vote.
But more than that, it is to impugn the result, it is to call into question the result of the elections in North Carolina. By saying, “Well, look at all these God-fearing black citizens who showed up and then were denied the right to vote. This racist state would not even let them vote.” And that’s supposed to call into question the entire outcome throughout the state. This is a strategy. It has been discovered again by a lawyer for the state of North Carolina. He somehow found out about this and he’s written a letter to the NAALCP demanding answers. “Hey, what is it you guys are doing here?”
This is all part of the early voting opportunity for confusion, disarray, and chaos. NAACP leader calls for creating confusion during midterm election by deliberately misleading voters. And, by the way, the other aspect of this is when it comes out these people were misled, guess who’s gonna get blamed for doing it? The Republicans. This is a great example of where voter ID would not permit this to happen. And voter ID is not yet the law in North Carolina. They’ve been fighting it tooth and nail just so they can continue this kind of thing.
Speaking of threats and intimidation, from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. This is a story by Jim Galloway and Daniel Malloy in the Atlanta newspaper. “A reader has sent us this early-voting turnout mailer sent out by the Georgia Democratic party that focuses on the shooting of Michael Brown and subsequent unrest in Ferguson, Mo. It contains an interesting line that concedes the problem of low interest among black voters: ‘If we want a better, safer future for our children, itÂ’s up to us to vote for change. The choices may not always be perfect, but the cost of inaction is simply too great.’
“We caught up with Democratic Party Chairman DuBose Porter at an event in Milledgeville this evening. He said the situation in Ferguson easily applies to Georgia: ‘Again, itÂ’s about opportunity. Are you going to be in situations more like that? I mean, thatÂ’s when you donÂ’t have people having the opportunity for jobs or to participate in their community and the opportunity to grow. … ThatÂ’s what we need to change in Georgia because thatÂ’s what you have. You have situations, you have communities that can explode like that because youÂ’ve taken the opportunity away from them.”
Why, this almost sounds like a threat. “DuBose Porter said the missive is in line with what Democrats are saying up and down the ticket.”
From North Carolina’s Fayetteville Observer: “Churchgoer Taken Aback by Political Flier’s Lynching Imagery — Dawn McNair said she was surprised Sunday when her daughter pointed out the background on a political flier urging people to get out and vote.
The front of the flier blares: ‘Kay Hagan doesn’t win! Obama’s impeachment will begin! Vote in 2014.'” That’s the flier that’s being sent out to African-Americans.
“The words are superimposed over a grainy reproduction of a photograph of what appears to be a lynching. … ‘My daughter said, “Mom, look in the background. They’re lynching somebody.” It’s the lynching of an African-American man,’ McNair said.” So African-American voters are getting a flier that shows a black man being lynched and the headline on the flier: “Kay Hagan doesn’t win! Obama’s impeachment will begin!” It’s supposed to create the impression that Obama’s gonna get lynched if Kay Hagan doesn’t win. Her daughter pointed it out, a political flier going around.
Now, do you remember we talked about the New York Times story on Monday about that internal Democrat memo warning about a Republican landslide in the midterms unless there’s a huge black turnout. Let me remind you, from the article, “African-Americans could help swing elections in Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, and possibly Arkansas, a New York Times analyst of voter data shows, but only if they turn out at higher-than-forecast rates.”
Well, so let it be written, so let it be done. Below, here are the examples I just gave you of ginning up the turnout in Georgia using Ferguson, Missouri, and North Carolina using a lynching photograph from long ago. I’m sure it’s happening in other states as well. And it doesn’t matter how incendiary or racist the Democrats have to get. Their jobs are on the line. And the media is going to be supportive and understanding of whatever they have to do. This is just gonna be called really smart politics.
This takes us back to Ferguson, Missouri, on CNN’s Newsroom today. The anchorette infobabe, Carol Costello, was interviewing St. Louis, Missouri, City Alderman Antonio French. During a discussion about the shooting of the gentle giant, Michael Brown, the infobabe, Carol Costello, said, “What do you make of the county’s autopsy report?” Now, we’ve reported to you on this already. The autopsy, which has been known since August but only today was revealed, blood was found on the officer’s uniform, the gentle giant’s. Blood was found inside the police vehicle. The gentle giant actually entered the police car and attempted to get the weapon of the police officer. This is now known.
The gentle giant was also using marijuana. The gentle giant did not have his hands up and he was not surrendering. He did run away but then charged back to the police officer. This is all known from the autopsy. It’s been known since August. And because that’s what it showed, they had to do two other autopsies try to cover this up or try to find some other conflicting evidence. So now we’ve got CNN with this alderman from St. Louis, Antonio French, and they’re asking him what he thinks of this autopsy.
FRENCH: I think it describes an awful way to die, and I think it also describes a situation, you know, where a young man who was unarmed was shot nine times. What I’m alarmed by is that the way this is being tried in the public and that information is being leaked out and we’re not getting a clear picture of everything. I think one of the things that we asked for at the beginning is that the only way this thing could happen in a way that actually gives the community what they’re asking for, is a public trial.
RUSH: Yeah, there you have it. They want a trial, they want an indictment, or they’re promising a situation you don’t want to live in. And the only way to fairness is to have a public trial. “We’re not getting a clear picture.” Oh, yes, we are, finally we are getting a clear picture. It’s just not the picture that the activists apparently want. And then the infobabe, Carol Costello, says, “Well, based on what you just said to me, you have to wonder, what if the grand jury does not indict? What happens then, Mr. Alderman?”
FRENCH: Well, worry about our community. We have to worry about the hours and days following an announcement that the grand jury would not indict. But in the long term, you know, our community has been really ripped apart, and we’ve got a lot of healing to do.
RUSH: Hmm. Hmm. Hmm. See. Public official here. “Well, I worry about our community.” Why? What’s gonna happen if there’s no indictment? What’s gonna happen in the community? So they want a public trial. It’s the only way for fairness, get a public trial. “If we don’t get a public trial, if we don’t get an indictment, well, I worry about our community.” What does that mean?
