Boston University Professor Says the Term “Legal Vote” is Racist

It’s actually close to the civil rights era term “one man, one vote.”

In another apparent attempt to delegitimize the claims of Trump supporters, Boston University professor Ibfram X. Kendi asserted that the term “legal vote” is “racist.”

Kendi declared on Twitter that “The term ‘legal vote’ is as fictionally fraught and functionally racist as the terms ‘illegal alien’ and ‘race neutral’ and ‘welfare queen” and ‘handouts’ and ‘super predator’ and ‘crackbaby’ and ‘personal responsibility’ and ‘post racial.’”

He went on to assert that allegations of voter fraud were inherently racist because they concern cities like Detroit, Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Phoenix, which have high black populations.

Kendi’s characterization is obviously another crass effort to delegitimize claims of vote fraud, but as Professor Jonathan Turley points out, far from being “racist,” the term “legal vote” is actually very close to another civil rights era term, “one man, one vote.”

“The doctrine of “one man, one vote” is actually a civil rights mantra found not only in constitutional law but political movements (like this Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee button). It is the doctrine embraced in a long series of court cases. See Gray v. Sanders, 372 U.S. 368 (1963); Reynolds v. Sims, 377 U.S. 533 (1964); Wesberry v. Sanders, 376 U.S. 1 (1964); and Avery v. Midland County, 390 U.S. 474 (1968),” writes Turley.

“The declaration of illegal votes as racist is clearly meant to paint anyone considering the current challenges as themselves racist, even before these claims are fully addressed in the courts,” added Turley.

“Yet, such challenges often are filed to protect minority votes. In the 2004 election, I was working for CBS and raised whether there should be challenges in Ohio over voter suppression and irregularities targeting minority areas in the Bush/Kerry race. The very heart of our civil rights and voting rights laws is found in our political system and the integrity of our elections. Illegal voting diminishes the voice of all Americans, including minority voters.”

Rand Paul: No Democrat Sent Well Wishes After Assault, Death Threats; “The Left Thinks It’s Hilarious”

“Something has to give and the left needs to quit fomenting this”

Senator Rand Paul revealed Thursday that he never received any well wishes or sentiments from any Democrats after he was brutally assaulted in 2017, or after receiving death threats as he did this week when white powder was sent to his family home and discovered by his wife Kelley Paul.

Appearing on Fox Business along with his wife to talk about the incident, Paul said “We have people on the left who think it’s just hilarious,” adding that social media trolls “encourage crazy people across the country.” 

Watch:

Paul continued, “I was hit from behind by someone running full blast down a hill,” referring to the assault on him by his own neighbour four years ago, suspected to be motivated by the man’s political opposition to Paul’s Conservative-Libertarian leanings.

As we previously reported, leftists continue to mock Paul’s assault, expressing their wishes that he had been killed in the attack. It isn’t just unhinged basement dwellers posting their vile drivel either, it’s “celebrities” with significant followings.

This has led to even more horrid death threats against Paul and his family.

The Senator noted that “not one Democrat came up to me since I’ve been back and said, ‘I’m sorry that you’re having to deal with having white powder sent in an envelope to you.’”

“Not one of them I don’t think ever said they were sorry for me being assaulted by someone and having six ribs broken and nearly dying and having my lung removed,” Paul added. 

“This has got to stop, but the left thinks it’s hilarious what happened to me and they encourage other people to do it,” the Senator further asserted, adding “Something has to give and the left needs to quit fomenting this.”

Pelosi: Lawmakers Who Don’t Wear Masks Or Get Vaccinated Could Be Banned From House Floor

“If you don’t want to wear a mask…if you’re not vaccinated, don’t even come to the floor”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested Thursday that any lawmakers who refuse to wear masks or get vaccinated could be prevented from having access to the House floor.

Pelosi has decided, despite CDC guidelines to the contrary, that masks still need to be worn by everyone, yet some GOP lawmakers are refusing to go along with her decree.

“We could come to a place where we say if you don’t want to wear a mask…if you’re not vaccinated, don’t even come to the floor. We have facilities up above in the gallery where people can come to vote,” Pelosi declared during a briefing:

As ever, it is one rule for Pelosi and the Democrats, and another for everyone else, because over at the White House there wasn’t a mask in sight as Democrats all shook hands and even….. HUGGED… dun dun daaaaaaaaaa:

The hypocrisy hasn’t gone unnoticed:

German Green Party Members Want to Remove ‘Germany’ From Their Own Manifesto

How much do they hate their own country?

Published

300 delegates of the German Green Party loathe their own country to such a degree, they are petitioning for the word ‘Germany’ to be removed from their own manifesto.

Yes, really.

The title of the party’s manifesto for the September federal election, which polls show they’re currently favorites for, is ‘Germany. Everything’s in it!’ – although that has caused controversy amongst many members of the party, who want the word deleted altogether.

“Green politics should be based on human dignity and freedom in a globalised world. And not on Germany,” states a motion supported by the delegates.

CDU politician Gordon Hoffmann suggested that a party which evidently loathes its own country to such a degree shouldn’t be in any kind of position to take control of it.

“If the Greens are so ashamed of Germany, why do they want to govern Germany?” he asked.

“You couldn’t make it up,” said Paul Ziemiak, secretary general of Angela Merkel’s CDU.

However, what Chancellor Merkel did to Germany is far worse than the removal of a word from a manifesto.

Despite Merkel once declaring multiculturalism to be a failure, she went on in 2015 to open Germany’s borders to over a million “refugees” with disastrous consequences.

Violent crimes and rapes surged while numerous jihadists exploited the refugee wave to slip into Europe and carry out terrorist atrocities.
