scotusThe United States Supreme Court voted on Tuesday voiding a key part of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. About time. That’s right, about damn time this was done. The Court nullified Section 4(b) of the law, ruling 5-4 that the standards used to select the parts of 15 states that currently need to gain “pre-clearance” from the federal government before passing their own voting laws are outdated.

votersThis was a landmark act no doubt 50 years ago, but progressive liberals still feel that today an old, out-dated law still applies. Really? These very same people who continue to argue or complain that Republicans want to take this country back 50 years or provide out-dated solutions find this still relevant? Appalling. Why? Many reasons, but the fact that they feel minorities or Black Americans will be taken back to 1965 is ridiculous. They think voting rights will now be obsolete for Blacks. They continue to play the race card as they often do, but check out this extremely intelligent tweet sent from MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry:

Then here is one from Christopher Hayes:

The ignorance from these left-wing clowns continue to be just mind-boggling. Here’s some clarity from Breitbart’s Ben Shapiro at least:

The fact of the matter is that although racial discrimination may still exist throughout parts of the country, Blacks and minorities no longer have it as a stumbling block in regards to voting. Complete nonsense to think otherwise. No doubt that we lived in a different era 50 years ago with real problems and real hurdles, but those have drastically lessened over the last five decades.

MLKAny time something like this is spoken about or put to vote, anyone who disagrees with or votes against it is considered a racist from the progressive left. They continue to use this as a crutch, but the data does not back this up nor does common sense. People today are generally not acceptable of racism and asking for voter ID is certainly not racist. Many on the left are complaining that what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr fought for 50 years ago is now wasted due to the SCOTUS decision today. Absolutely ridiculous statement to say the least.  This vote today will certainly not keep Blacks or minorities from voting and to think otherwise is completely ignorant.

President Obama quickly called on Congress to pass a new law to ensure equal access to voting polls for all.

“I am deeply disappointed with the Supreme Court’s decision today,” Obama said in a statement, adding the court’s action “upsets decades of well-established practices that help make sure voting is fair, especially in places where voting discrimination has been historically prevalent.”

You know because signs that read,”Minorities Can Not Vote” will soon be up at all the polling stations in the southern states. Someone needs to check what’s in the particular drinking fountain these liberals are surrounded by. If you can’t find it, check the other side of the room. It’s probably separate from the fountain of common sense.
