UN Human Rights Council Will Investigate US Voter ID Laws

Good grief. The United Nations Human Rights Council will investigate US voter ID laws. The issue was brought to the council by the NAACP. The UNHRC includes member states Cuba, China, Indonesia, Congo and Saudi Arabia.
Poor Richard’s News reported on this from FOX News:

The United Nations Human Rights Council is investigating the issue of American election laws at its gathering on minority rights in Geneva, Switzerland.. This, despite the fact that some members of the council have only in the past several years allowed women to vote, and one member, Saudi Arabia, still bars women from the voting booth completely.

Officials from the NAACP are presenting their case against U.S. voter ID laws, arguing to the international diplomats that the requirements disenfranchise voters and suppress the minority vote.

Eight states have passed voter ID laws in the past year, voter ID proposals are pending in 32 states and the Obama administration has recently moved to block South Carolina and Texas from enacting their voter ID measures.

“This really is a tactic that undercuts the growth of your democracy,” said Hillary Shelton, the NAACP’s senior vice president for advocacy, about voter photo ID requirements.

In a Fox News interview prior to his trip, Shelton said the message from the NAACP delegation to the Human Rights Council is that the photo ID law “undercuts the integrity of our government, if you allow it to happen. It’s trickery, it’s a sleight-of-hand. We’re seeing it happen here and we don’t want it to happen to you, and we are utilizing the U.N. as a tool to make sure that we are able to share that with those countries all over the world.

    rather than worrying about a splinter in our eye, they should start with the GIANT PLANK in their OWN.

    This gets me so angry!

    Who the HELL cares what the UN thinks about our voting laws or about anything??

    They should stay where they belong. Wherever that is!

    Let’s see if I have this straight. A group that has devolved from a legitimate civil rights organization into a race-baiting grievance-mongering cluster **** is taking a totally fabricated case full of lies to another group, one that exists solely for the promotion of Marxism and wealth redistribution, and for the protection of dictators, thugs, and despots.

    Ok, that should work.

    And so it begins………..
    Here come the dictates from the world body of pedophiles, rapists, dictators, eugenicists, tyrants, do-nothing bureaucrats, and ___________ (please help me fill in the blanks-I’m really pissed at this point) to subvert OUR supposedly fair elections. They are trying to piss off Americans anyway they possibly can to get a reaction out of us-it’s what they want.

    Folks- these A**HOLES communists in charge of our government aren’t going to leave but by anything but force.

    One of the main efforts of the Soros-backed UN NWO movement toward internationalized oppression is to subjugate and dismantle the US. They will accomplish this by destroying our freedoms by shredding our Constitution though their conduit, Comrade Barry Hussein. Destroying the First Amendment is their first major battle, at all costs. Remember that recent statement by commie operative Panetta that US military engagement will come through international approval and not through Congress – which is treasonous.

    We choose to ignore UN diktats at our peril. We have been infiltrated by traitors – Barry, Hillary, Panetta, Holder, Sunstein, Sebelius, and so many others.

    WE asked about voter ID here in this African country.
    They require photo NATIONAL ID PLUS photo ID VOTER CARD. Out came the wallets and got to inspect them. Yup. Now the GNP per capita income around these parts – all the surrounding coutnries too is no higher than $600. So, poorer than anything imaginable in the USA… and they ALL have photo IDs.

    The reaction to the statement that in the USA the Democratic Party says that ID shouldn’t be required was met with an incredulous STARE, “How are they supposed to know if the voter is LEGAL?”

    SO, don’t blame NORMAL people. If any vote supporting the DEMS is made, it’ll be rank, raw absolute cynical political deal-making (probably bribes here and there – normal cheating) .

    Not a SINGLE UN person from another country can vote in his or her country without photo ID, PLUS usually a specific VOTER ID, so for them to listen to this drivel will be polite facade of listening, laugh behind their backs mockery.

    Thanks NAACP for telegraphing to the world that Black Americans must be complete and utter idiots. The whinging and wailing about how those well-dressed chubbies have it so tough doesn’t go over well in countries that have GNP per cap of under $1000.

    You are correct. This is a clear and present danger. We should get out of the UN now!!

    No one can vote in a UN – supervised election without a valid voter ID.

    (as reported by a senior UN official)


  • Ausonius

    They have no standing to investigate anything here and officials need to grow a pair and deny them access to anything on that basis.

    I cannot believe the NAACP would do this. It is so racist.

    The UN is NOT our friend. I look forward to the day that we have a government that will kick the UN out of the United States and will stop the current flow of money from the United States to the UN.

  • wanumba

    The NAACP deserves to be MOCKED and RIDICULED for giving the entire world the impression that American Blacks are unbelievably stupid. They REALLY want BLACKER people than they STARING at them like they had four heads each?

    I’ve said it for decades: It’s time to turn that prime real estate in Turtle Bay into a first-rate parking garage.

    God knows that New York City needs it!

    There’s no clear advantage to having this building there — Demolish and rebuild a garage!

    this is another racist lie of the civil rights movement. i registered to vote in 1965. i’m sitting here looking at the voter registration card i was given when i registered. i can remember being asked to show this card the first several times i voted. so having voter identification is nothing new in the united states.

    everything the civil rights leaders and liberal america has done since they fought to establish the principle of one man one vote has been to to undermine that principle and facilitate voter fraud, from motor voter to register by mail, by phone, to the work of acorn. the quest to have voter ID is an attempt to make our elections honest and once again the NCAAP is on the side of dishonesty
