VOTING MUST BE RESTRICTED!

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer In Error—Mass-Media Drumbeat Misleading:

VOTING MUST BE RESTRICTED!

Onlyqualified adult U.S. citizens may vote in U.S. elections

Peoplemustprove their identity to cast a valid ballot

Ballots without guaranteed validity must not count

NOTE: Voting rights and gun rights are co-equal civil and human rights

 

CNN news anchor Wolf Blitzer is leading a charge voiced by mass media nationwide, saying repeatedly, “We want as many people as possible to vote.” (–Wolf Blitzer, CNN 3/15/21). He echoes a seductive left-wing deception, which dies horribly if you substitute a different basic right, “We want as many people as possible to have a gun” —

 We want as many adult U.S. citizens, who are legally entitled to vote—or bear arms.

“As many people as possible” is a destructive falsehood, a Democrat’s talking point that undermines our Republic, and could destroy true democracy. Should we add... educated, to voting and guns? Half the country believes, with evidence and reasonable suspicion, that many people cast ballots that cannot be legally cast. Cases of voting fraud have been repeatedly discovered in the courts, which critics say is the tip of the iceberg.

 No one corrected Blitzer. His deception spread to the world unbalanced, uncorrected, prejudicial. Only proven citizens can vote. Broadcasters often make statements like this, or worse, without correction. This abuses the public trust. The scrutiny we demand for the right to arms should parallel what we require of proper upstanding citizens to vote.

Wolf’s abuse should jeopardize CNN’s license. With Democrats’ cancel-culture warriors actively admitting non-citizens into the country, without ports of entry or even court dates, concerns exist about the integrity of the electorate, let alone the voting process. Leftists may charge suppression, but that’s distinct and apart from deleting fraudsters. In excess of 1.8 million “ghost” voters were found in 353 counties across 29 states, in the recent Judicial Watch study. Fulton County, Ga., had a registration rate of 109%, exceeding eligible residents. Similar problems were found in Penn., Nev., Mich., and elsewhere. Former mayor Pete Buttigieg is under investigation for issuing “community ID” cards to illegal aliens that could pass for ID to register for voting. Pete—people legally registered to vote can legally keep and bear arms. Are you OK with that?

The main objection Democrats have to requiring ID at the time of voting is that Blacks (and others of color) will be denied the vote. This is a total insult. It presumes Blacks can't drive, visit doctors, get bank accounts, rent or buy homes, get vaccine shots, fly, basically anything. How do they convince Blacks, or anyone, that this is true? Democrats are a Blacks' worst friends.
