Bill Clinton Likens GOP Voter ID Efforts to Democrat’s Jim Crow Laws

Here we go again… First it was DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz who compared GOP policy to Jim Crow Laws. Today it was Bill Clinton’s turn. The impeached democrat compared GOP voter ID efforts to Jim Crow laws.

Maybe someone should remind Bill Clinton that it was the democrats who initiated the Jim Crow laws.

In fact, the KKK, as you know, was founded as the the terrorist wing of the Democrat Party.

The Ku Klux Klan assassinated many Republicans including Republican Representative James M. Hinds (December 5, 1833—October 22, 1868) of Little Rock. Hinds represented Arkansas in the United States Congress from June 24, 1868 through October 22, 1868.

But why let facts get in your way, Bill?
The Politico reported:

Former President Bill Clinton Wednesday compared GOP efforts to limit same-day voter registration and block some convicted felons from voting to Jim Crow laws and poll taxes.

In a speech to liberal youth activists Wednesday, the former president called out proposals in battleground states like Florida and Ohio that could limit the voter rolls.

“I can’t help thinking since we just celebrated the Fourth of July and we’re supposed to be a country dedicated to liberty that one of the most pervasive political movements going on outside Washington today is the disciplined, passionate, determined effort of Republican governors and legislators to keep most of you from voting next time,” Clinton said at Campus Progress’s annual conference in Washington.

“There has never been in my lifetime, since we got rid of the poll tax and all the Jim Crow burdens on voting, the determined effort to limit the franchise that we see today,” Clinton added.

Clinton mentioned Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s move in March to overturn past state precedent — including under former GOP governors — that allows convicted felons to vote once they’ve served they’ve finished probation periods.

    Clinton’s efforts to demonize GOP are like Idi Amin’s efforts to ‘ control ‘ his rivals

  • regularguy

    Yeah, like trying to attain some semblance of voting integrity and security is in such contradiction to our civic process. Actually I’d support a civic test and some proof of real property or stock ownership as well. And, if you’re on some sort of public assistance, you can’t vote, either. It’d be nice if we actually had educated and not indoctrinated voters for a change, not to mention voters who are demonstrably responsible.

  • bigkahuna

    I have never seen such blatant, slimy, unabashed efforts to allow and encourage voter fraud, voting by illegals, criminals, under aged and dumbasses.

    The fact that we want honest, open elections and asking that people actualluy have to identify themselves for this simple act is beyond logic. Not shocking since we are talking about the morally corrupt democrats.

    If asking anyone in this country today to provide a valid id prior to voting is a problem for you…then you are too stupid to vote and exactly what the democrats want. It simply proves that they have and desire the dumbest, most easily fooled and dependent people on earth voting for them.

    They claim to want people educated but do everything they can to keep them dependent, dumb and voting for liberals

  • RS

    I suspect that Bill and the rest of the Democrats are concerned that black Americans might be considering an escape from the dependency of the Democrat plantation.

  • D W Pepper

    Bubba got Voted OUT !!! He failed to Say a Democrat also formed The new Black Panthers besides the KKK.. The new rules are to prevent voter fraud which is RAMPANT in the Democratic party . If you look at all 50 states.. The ones with Democratic leadership are the ones with the Highest corruption.. Those FACTS melt anything any Democrat to say.

  • mg4us

    Agree with #3 BigKahuna

    We need “government” ID to board a plane, obtain a driver’s license, enroll in school courses to name a few so why note for voting?

    Even if one wants to “borrow” a library book you need the proper ID (a library card). . .
    I don’t hear libs talking about folks being disenfranchised by these actions. . .

    Could it be these folks are planning on doing an “Al Franken” and stealing the election?

    Most important things Republicans/Conservatives can do in the House is to enact voter ID BEFORE 2012 Election.

  • eaglewingz08

    We never had thirty million illegal aliens attempting to vote before. We never had such a resolute effort by open borders crowd to eviscerate the election laws to let non Americans and/or unqualified persons dilute and misappropriate the franchise.

    Tonight I went to Subway. I used a debit card issued on a local bank and was asked for my driver’s license in order to purchase a $5.00 sandwich. Go to Blockbuster and try to open an account without showing your driver’s license or some other form of photo I.D. Cash a check anywhere in the U.S. Yep, I.D. required to cash a check or give a check to a merchant. In my small town (4,000) you have to show I.D. at the public library to get a card for you or your kids so that they know you are a resident of the town.

    But Bubba wants all those criminals to be able to vote.

    Bill Clinton’s mentor was J.William Fulbright…a segregationist.

    Mr Hoft, can you plz use your sources to explain what bee has gone into Hannity’s bonnet ? Is his tail under a boulder ? He seems to be acting rude and stupid with Kimberly , on his show right now w r t Casey Anthony verdict . He has 2 similar mouths on with him, ganging up , not even allowing Kimberly to finish her sentences. Is that FOX making him act like a jerk or is there some well coordinated threat to the media which we don’t know about ? Yet

    “Rhode Island governor signs voter ID bill

    BOSTON | Wed Jul 6, 2011 5:16pm EDT

    (Reuters) – Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee signed into law a bill that would require voters to show identification at the polls in 2012, with a photo required before casting a ballot in 2014, his office announced on Wednesday.”

    The democrats haven’t changed. They just took off the sheets and developed other than white hate groups. Oh and they still operate a huge plantation and da big house is in Mahattanstan the tiny island nation that carried out the worst terrorist attack on America evah!!!
    Suck on that Chris Mathews, the Newspeak beotch and any of you Manhattanstan terrorist on TV

    I’d like a count of the people in that crowd who were unable to produce picture id.

  • exceller

    I see all Democrat Rhode Island passed a voter ID bill. what does bubba have to say about Lincoln Chaffee, racist KKK member perhaps?

  • pjean


    This isn’t about one citizen, one vote. Clinton’s got to make it about race.

    Typical liberal solution.

  • gus

    These mutherfuxers think that “WE” are cheating lying bastards, like they are. They do. They think we are trying to cheat, because THEY DO, and the naturally bring race into it. You see, LIBTARDS……USE…….black people for their ends.

  • Mad Hatter

    Typical Democrat tactics. When you can’t win the debate, name call, smear, and lie about your opponents. The Dems know that requiring people to have an I.D. to vote in Florida and other states will help keep the 2012 Elections honest, something the Dems can’t have.

    If you are required to have an I.D. to rent a book from the Library, to rent a car, to name a few things, then there’s no reason not to have an I.D. to vote.

  • Molon Labe

    We all can rely on a creature who perjured himself to speak the truth now can’t we.

    The dhimmies are counting on the dead and illegal aliens to elect Obama and others of his ilk. They know Americans despise their Marxist policies.

  • Clinton needs to go AWAY……….FAR FAR AWAY

  • kato

    Thanks, Bill, for putting the subject in context. You have confirmed the fact that the main reason we need to tighten the ID requirements is because we have a big problem with BLACKS stealing elections.

    In order to keep the cheating going, the disgraced former president is forced to make the argument that blacks are so infantilized that they can’t even get something as simple as an ID. That sounds racist, but coming from a black man from Harlem, it may be accurate.

    And while we’re on the subject of blacks, how many of those cheating Atlanta “educators” are going to turn out to be black. My guess is 90 percent or more.

  • Little David Puddy

    In November I went to the North Carolina polling place to help make sure Nancy Pelosi was removed as speaker of the house. I had my ID ready to go, but was told that they did not need it. I was shocked. All they did was ask me my name and look it up on a voter registration sheet. I tried to explain to the proctor that anyone could just show up and say they were me and use my vote. They told me if someone came in and fradulently voted under my name, I could still vote by proving who I was. So basically, they would need to see an ID only AFTER voter fraud had already occurred.

    Just last week the newly elected republican controlled NC legislature passed a bill that would require you to show an ID in order to vote. It was immediately vetoed by scumbag democrat govenor Beverly Perdue.

    The subversion of our democracy by the democratic party may soon lead to another civil war in this country. The main thing that the democrats (aka socialists) don’t understand is that unlike the peasants of Russia, China, Cuba, Vietnam etc, we, the uneducated American peasants with sloping foreheads are very, very well armed.

    Considering how the race card was used against Bill CLinton and HIllary clinton in 2008, it appears the demonrats still believe this is an effective weapon. Shame on you bill clinton for using the race card.

    This isn’t about denying legal voters their right to vote, this is about making sure illegal voters don’t have the right to vote.

    Considering how much voter fraud was done against Hillary in 2008, this latest stunt by bill clinton has basically now convinced me, the man is nothing but a power hungry jerk, he cna’t shut up, he uses the race card, frankly I wish he would shut up, I don’t hear the other presidents spout their views… I don’t count crazy carter, but the other 2 prez, bush and bush jr… they don’t go around spouting their opinions… I really wish clinton would just shut the hell up, I’m so tired of hearing his comments on everything, and I voted and campaigned for this fool both times in the past decade.

    Let’s take a look at how voter fraud works:

    Ciro Rodriquez (D) ran in an all candidate primary against sitting Congressman, Henry Bonilla (R) in Texas. Bonilla took 48.1% of the vote (out of six candidates) while Rodriquez took only 20.3% but was the second runner up. Since Bonilla did not get the required 50% there was a run off. Rodriquez pulled out all the stops with ACORN and LaRaza hitting the streets. He won the runoff against Bonilla, a truely brilliant man, 54% to 46%. It was later proved by the Texas State Election Board that a number of illegal immigrants had voted for Rodriquez in Bexar County (San Antonio).

    In 2010, Francisco Canseco, Repubican, ran against Ciro Rodriquez, in a very blue district, and won. Congressman Canseco’s district takes in the counties that line almost 3/4 of the Texas/Mexico border. You see, the poll watchers were out in full force for Canseco, ACORN had been outed, and Rodriquez could not pull in the votes without them.

    The King Street Patriots have a great program that will teach you how to clean up the voter rolls in your own county, train poll watchers and make sure that voter fraud is kept to a minimum. If you are interested, their group, TrueTheVote, has activists in almost every state now. Do your part. Train. Watch. Purge your county’s voter rolls of illegally registered voters and dead voters. You CAN do it.

    Why do Democrat ex-Presidents seem to think that the office includes a lifetime appointment as National Nag, Everlasting Enemy Appeaser, and Presidential Legacy Rewriter?
    It’s a pension, not a salary, guys. Retire, already. Go Away.

    Great picture Jim, always like to see vintage photos of DNC rallies.

  • HeavyDee

    It’s interesting that voting is supposed to be one of our most sacred rights as Americans, yet you can pretty much walk right in to any polling place and ask for a ballot, few if any questions asked. So why does my son’s Little League All-Star team have to provide an ORIGINAL Birth certificate as well as three forms of identification that shows the parents live at their stated address. Apparently in America, you can become a State Senator, US Senator and President of the United States without showing a BC; but you damn sure won’t get on a Little League field.

    Clinton (like most Dems) has a bigoted view of “people of color” if he thinks they aren’t capable of obtaining ID (which the vast majority have anyway) or remembering to bring it along to the polls.

  • Radegunda

    “the determined effort to limit the franchise that we see today,” — It’s an effort to “limit the franchise” to people who are legally illegible to vote, and limit their voting to once per election. Dems hate anything that makes it harder to cheat.

  • Militant Conservative

    Buy & pass along the book”whites blacks and

    racist democrats”. Powerful and true

  • JD

    Radegunda, not sure that’s the correct word “legally illegible to vote”. My fingers run away on the keyboard, too; a lot.

  • Indy

    How many Federal programs require a photo ID, I cannot get an X-Ray at our local hospital nor buy Sudafed without showing a photo ID, come on…Jim Crow laws!!! give me a break, most don’t even know the history of the Jim Crow laws

    what role did the Democrats play?
    where did they begin?

  • I can only hope the objections to voter ID, once passed on a national scale, will be historically viewed the same as the civil rights movement: Democrat Obstuctionism.

  • Andreas K.

    Hey Bill, come to Austria or Germany and observe an election here. No ID, no vote. That simple. And that’s how it should be to make sure only citizens vote.

    J.William Fulbright was a real gem. There were 35,000 American GIs in Loas when his liar claimed, “There are no American soldiers in Loas”. I was there so I knew. Strange no one from Arkansas amoung those 35,000.
