The Soviet Socialist State of North Carolina is at it again. They are following Wisconsin in not following court orders when it comes to the election. As you know in Wisconsin, the court ordered the state to show proof that they are following the ID requirements placed on them by the courts. In that order, the State is supposed to issue proper IDs to those who require them within six days. However, it was reported that several counties are telling people, especially minorities, that it will take up to eight weeks to get the ID.
That is in violation of the courts orders, but Wisconsin GOP doesn’t seem to care. A similar situation, but different, exists in the Soviet State of North Carolina. There the most repressive voter restriction law in the land was struck down by the courts, and SCOTUS refused to hear an appeal of it.
n this case, North Carolina’s ID section was completely stricken so no IDs will be needed to vote in the election. Plus, the court ordered the State to go back to its early voting schedule instead of a very decreased one in the law struck down.
Looked like everything would be okay. Nope! The GOP in the Soviet Socialist State of North Carolina told the election board, made up mostly of the Politburo’s political party, to only “make part” line changes that the GOP would endorse. This was evidenced by a leaked email from the NCGOP executive director Dallas Woodhouse.
As a result of this email, the Board of Elections reluctantly voted to allow “limited” Sunday voting and decrease restrictions for total voting hours allowed for early voting. Both of these are in direct violation of the Federal Court’s rulings and orders.
The object is very clear here. In North Carolina the practice of “souls to the polls” is very popular, especially among African-American churches. On Sundays, the congregation goes to church and then it goes to the polls to vote. Decreasing Sunday voting hours is intended to stop this practice so fewer minorities actually vote.
They also reduced the number of voting places for early voting. Meaning if you want to participate in early voting you need to travel much further than you normally have to. Early voting is used primarily by minorities because they often have jobs that does not necessarily allow them to vote on election day. So, they use a day off before election day to vote.
In the order that overturned the voter suppression law, the court said that the law “used surgical precision” to suppress the minority vote in the Soviet Socialist State of North Carolina.
Voters in five counties have filed an emergency suit against these new voting rules. The appeal is requesting more early voting hours, Sunday voting, and more voting locations. It is really sad that you have to go back to court to re-win a case you already won.
But, in places like the soviet Socialist State of North Carolina, the courts don’t mean a thing. Rule of law doesn’t mean a thing. Only Chairman McCrory and his Politburo matter. If they want to keep you from voting, they will do everything they can to be sure you don’t vote.
They learned their lessons very well from Mother Russia when it was the Union of the Soviet Republic. The only thing that matters in elections is predetermining who is going to win, and making sure that is the result no matter how much you have to cheat.
The Soviet Socialist State of North Carolina has announced very clearly that if you’re an African-American, Latino-American, Asian-American, young, old, or gay, you don’t have any rights in the state.
The really bad part is Chairman McCrory and this Politburo are proud of this Soviet stance. Maybe that is why they all support Trump.
