Eric Holder and his friends in the Justice Department have convinced a federal judge that for blacks to have their full civil rights, they must be able to vote for Democrats. The Daily Caller reports:
A U.S. District Court judge has rejected a challenge to Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 — filled when the Department of Justice barred the city of Kinston, N.C. from holding nonpartisan elections — reasoning that lack of access to party affiliation would discriminate against minority voters who otherwise wouldn’t know how to find Democratic candidates on a ballot.
The challenge was initiated after the Justice Department rejected a 2008 referendum vote in which the city of Kinston voted to stop listing candidates’ party affiliations on ballots.
Get that? If you don’t mark the candidates’ parties, some blacks may accidentally vote for Republicans. The Democrats’ are greatly concerned this will hurt…blacks.
