    And Holder is doing his best to show the country how little he cares about the laws of this nation.

    Sorry, dumbass. You can't take "swift action" against states that don't break the law. Of course, Holder doesn't exactly think the law applies to him or his department so I wouldn't be shocked to see him try to pull some shit despite having no legal reason to do so.

    I assume Holder is referring to black panthers with nightsticks standing outside polling places.

    Those are protected actions of convicted felons, sir. Because the DOJ said so.

    Seriously, I was half expecting him to accuse the SCOTUS of being racist and declare the ruling invalid because he says so.

    State Representative Ryan Winkler D-Minnesota responds to "racist" ruling by, well...

    [​IMG]

    A Democratic lawmaker from Minnesota criticized Tuesday’s Supreme Court decision on the Voting Rights Act by calling Justice Clarence Thomas “Uncle Thomas,” then saying he didn’t know “Uncle Tom” was a racist epithet.
    On his Twitter account Tuesday, state Rep. Ryan Winkler called the justices’ 5-4 ruling striking down a part of the law racist, and the work of “four accomplices to race discrimination and one Uncle Thomas.” Justice Thomas, who is black, was one of the five justices in the majority.

    Full Story

    Thankfully, Mr. Winkler has a D after his name, otherwise this would be racist.

    If the idiot didn't know Uncle Tom was a racist term, why did he call him "Uncle" in the first place? That's one of the worst excuses I've ever heard for saying or doing something stupid.

    From reading tweets my understanding is that blacks don't have citizenship anymore and they are no longer allowed to vote. Is that what happened?

    Let's just say now that Supreme Court has ruled we don't have to rely on Eli Whitney any longer.

    I love listening to dumbfuck democrats talk about SCOTUS and the right taking us back to the days of the Jim Crow Laws...as if they weren't the party of racial segregation, the KKK, and Jim Crow laws. So many misinformed dopes in this country.

    Duh! Everybody knows the parties swapped sides sometime in the 60's.

    Its amazing how impossible it is to convince these morons that granting someone special rights, privileges, and opportunities based solely on the color of their skin IS by definition racist. Just as infringing on someone's rights, privileges, and opportunities based solely on the color of their skin is racist.

    ~Martin Luther King Jr.

    Crazy that in 2013 so many people on the Left would call great men like MLK an Uncle Tom.

    It's becoming the most popular excuse for politicians who use twitter.

    Cause you know, anything can be hacked.

    Good little tweeters, tweeting exactly what their government and media tells them to.

    Since thinking for yourself is so faux pas

    I am quite fond of the people who opposed the tweeters making comments like "cheese doodles soda space ships." I mean, if the people against the tweeters are 100% free thinkers who don't have their opinions influenced by any sources, then at some people it has to devolve into nonsense just to prove how super amazing free thinkers they are. Why, they shan't follow anyone else's interpretation or thoughts on the issue!

    No, I'm with you. The people who agree with your point of view are all free thinkers and everyone else is sheeple. That's the only way the delusion works.
