CHICAGO (CBS) – A new state law requires those who buy industrial drain cleaners and other caustic substances to provide photo identification and sign a log.
Where’s the outrage from Debbie Wasserman-Schultz?
From the ACLU website:
“Don’t let America turn back the clock on the fundamental right to purchase drain cleaner. Tell Attorney General Holder: Protect every citizen’s right to unclog their pipes.”
Oh wait. Shoot, I read that wrong. It actually says, “Don’t let America turn back the clock on the fundamental right to vote. Tell Attorney General Holder: Protect every citizen’s right to vote.”
Well, I expect they will soon be coming out with that first statement, because after all, it’s been proclaimed ‘racist’ and ‘discriminatory’ to require photo ID. Or, is it only ‘racist’ and ‘discriminatory’ to require photo ID to vote? Not for anything else?
If it is racist and discriminatory to require photo ID to vote, why isn’t it racist and discriminatory to require photo ID for anything else?
Debbie Wasserman-Schultz on requiring photo ID:
She [Wasserman-Schultz] went on to say that the DNC considers photo ID laws to be “very similar to a poll tax. I mean you look – just look at African-American voters [shoppers?] as a snapshot. About 25 percent of African-American voters [shoppers] don’t have a valid photo ID. I mean – and – and the reason it’s similar to a poll tax is because you’ve got the expense. You’ve got the effort. There’s difficulties for … many people in getting a photo ID. So, you’re literally just throwing a barrier in the way of someone who’s trying to exercise their right to vote.” [parenthetical additions and emphasis mine]
Or, purchase drain cleaner.
So, Debbie, what say you? I would love to know what you plan on doing about this grossly unfair miscarriage of justice on behalf of the disenfranchised would-be drain cleaner buyers in Obama’s home state.
And while we’re on the subject, in all seriousness, does anyone else find it incredibly insulting and…yes, RACIST…that Ms. Wasserman-Schultz singles out African-Americans as being unable to get photo ID? Because of the “expense” and the “effort?”
Personally, I find that extremely offensive.
Lies, hypocrisy, and the loathsome “soft bigotry of low expectations.” The Democrat Party platform.
