Attorney General Jeff Sessions has chosen to drop the carryover Department of Justice claim that a Texas voter ID law was enacted to make it harder for minorities to vote. The left is predictably upset by this move.
According to to Talking Points Memo:
“This signals to voters that they will not be protected under this administration,” said Danielle Lang, the deputy director of voting rights at the Campaign Legal Center, which is challenging Texas’ law in court.
As with many narratives pushed forth through Alinskyesque techniques, this is absolutely untrue. Voter ID laws are intended to protect real voters by letting their votes count equally with other real voters. Those who vote fraudulently discredit the system and dilute the potency of actual American votes.
How is it harder for minorities to get an ID? I’m a minority. As far as I could tell, I wasn’t treated any differently when getting my ID than I would have if I were Caucasian. The claims of discrimination by the left are ridiculous and intended solely to make it easier for ineligible voters (who predominantly vote Democrat) to tilt the scales to the left.
The Right Scoop notes:
Kudos to Jeff Sessions for doing the right thing here. While it is what we expected, it’s great news nonetheless. Voter ID is a no-brainer and only fools oppose it.
Voter ID laws do not discriminate. By definition, discrimination requires one group of people to be unfairly treated based upon their classification. A person of any race, sex, or religion goes through the exact same process as everyone else when getting valid identification. To say otherwise is patently false.
