The progressive forces attack our constitutional rights on a daily basis. The free speech rights of a MAJORITY of Americans–those who invest in or own companies, including union workers–are under attack by the forces of the progressive left. The voting rights of the MAJORITY of Americans are under attack by the forces of the progressive left. Here’s just one example:
James O’Keefe has done it again with an expose of potential vote fraud in Vermont.
O’Keefe’s new video from Vermont could not be more timely, coming the day after the U.S. Department of Justice’s civil rights division blocked a Texas photo ID requirement for voters–to the applause of the American Civil Liberties Union, which claimed that the law was “discriminatory” against “Latinos, African-Americans, elderly citizens, and others.”
As the Project Veritas video shows, the current system in Vermont discriminates against actual legal voters, who must face the prospect of disenfranchisement by those who would vote in their stead illegally, or have their votes cancelled out by those voting illegally in place of deceased voters who have yet to be removed from the rolls.
If it is not discriminatory for Vermont citizens to be required to show ID to get married or buy alcohol, it is certainly not discriminatory to make them show ID to vote.
“It is a national disgrace that ballots can be given out in the names of dead people,” O’Keefe told Breitbart.com. “Threats of government intimidation will not stop us from protecting the integrity of the ballot box. If any state has a system which encourages ballots to be given out to the wrong person, dead or alive, we will come to your state, we will film your poll workers, and Project Veritas will put the videos on YouTube. States like Vermont and New Hampshire have to take dead people off voter registration forms and clean up their act, once and for all.”
Remember how the progressives parrot the lie that there’s no evidence that vote fraud happens? Well, here’s more evidence. While this is the Republican primary, keep in mind that many who are NOT Republicans are voting in the Republican primaries, in order to help choose the Republican nominee. It’s the Democrats, especially the racialist progressives, who oppose making voters prove their identity and eligibility at the polls, despite that the vast majority of Americans favor this requirement.
While James O’Keefe, warrior for the people, works to protect the integrity of the ballot and ensure that the voting rights of MOST Americans aren’t trampled upon, OWS, SEIU, MoveOn, and other progressive groups are placing a bounty of $25,000 on information about corporations that support political campaigns.
Be assured that they won’t pay the reward to anybody who documents that corporations like Google or Ben & Jerry’s or Facebook may secretly send money to entities that support their favored candidate: Barry Obama.
This is yet more intimidation, which is what we’ve learned to expect from the heavy hand of the thuggish, anti-constitutional progressive left.
They’re trying to SILENCE corporations. Not the ones that support their candidates, though. Just those who support Barry Obama’s opponents. Now they’re encouraging employees to spy into confidential business information.
Gee, it almost sounds as if they’re aiding and abetting corporate sabotage. Isn’t that a crime? An illegal conspiracy? With Eric Holder, our most corrupt Attorney General ever, at the head of the now Dept. of inJustice, there will be no repercussions for this anti-free-speech thuggery. From that news story, with my comments in brackets:
“The whistle-blower must provide credible evidence that a corporation has made or plans to make a donation to a 501(c)4 social welfare group,” [Americans (?) United for Change CEO Robert] Creamer said. [A social welfare group like MoveOn? Plans to make?]
It is unclear how employees could provide such proof without turning over proprietary financial information.
But Creamer said such evidence could be obtained without violating internal confidentiality rules.
“People want to weigh whether they have other obligations legally they need to abide by,” he said.
“Bottom line is, some of these corporations have such massive amount of profit, if they were to get engaged politically, they could swamp ordinary Americans,” he added. [Like Microsoft, Google, Facebook can, and do?]
Since the 2010 Supreme Court ruling in the Citizens United case, corporations and labor unions have been able to spend unlimited amounts of money on political activity. Since then, some corporations have given money to “super PACs,” independent political organizations that can raise unlimited amounts of money. But it is likely that substantially more corporate money is going to 501(c)4 social welfare groups, which can do a limited amount of political activity but do not have to disclose their donors.
Americans United for Change is itself a 501(c)4 that does not have to disclose its donors.
Creamer said it is funded by unions such as the SEIU and American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees, as well as individual donors, and does not receive corporate money.”
Take his word for it. They’re only funded by union thugs and individuals. No mention of George Soros.
Oh, I get it now: Creamer points out that they’re funded by union and municipal employees and individuals, so somehow those people, the rank and file, the blue collar workers, the “ordinary Americans,” are BETTER than others? (Actually, it’s not the rank and file but the thugs at the top who control the unions.) In any case, are they more worthy of free speech rights and the protection of the Constitution? What is this? Reverse elitism?
So it’s okay for unions and public employees to SPEAK, but white collar workers, stockholders, business owners, retirees, the wealthy must be SILENT? Or else? Or else what?
Smeared in the complicit media and threatened with boycotts. That’s what.
Unions want to be able to give secretly and hide their donors, but stockholders and business owners must STFU.
Progressive corporations and unions should be able to secretly contribute to “social welfare groups” like MoveOn, but non-progressives must be muzzled. Non-progressives must fight for their beliefs and their candidates with one hand tied behind their backs.
Progressive social welfare groups already stand accused of coordinating with their candidates; and yet, as when black churches violate the rules and allow politicking from the pulpit, the Dept. of inJustice looks the other way. Just as they look the other way when blacks intimidate whites at the polls. Or when illegal aliens illegally vote. Civil rights and voting rights, to this Attorney General, do not apply to “white people”. And that’s a fact, because Holder so testified to Congress. Was he under oath? It doesn’t matter because in this instance, I totally believe that he was telling the truth.
I predict that nobody will ever collect that bounty, because the evidence won’t be ruled “credible.” But in the meantime, these groups will collect a massive amount of intel and build an enormous database of information that might be secretly used to intimidate and blackmail corporations to stay silent.
We the People will never know. We’ll be kept in the dark. As we’re kept in the dark about what goes on behind the scenes to enforce this unprecedented news blackout about the subject of Barry Obama’s ineligibility.
So much for FREE SPEECH. Don’t be fooled again.
