NAACP head: Voter ID laws would hurt transgenders

There is only one real reason Liberals do not want Photo ID required to vote. Because they can commit voter fraud much easier. There is not one legitimate argument against voter ID laws, not one. But that does not stop Democrats from coming up with more creative lies to frighten us about such laws. Ben Jealous might have offered the most absurd

National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) President Benjamin Jealous threw out a bizarre, new reason Friday for Voter ID laws to be banned in the U.S. – transgenders.

Yes, you read that correctly.

At a Netroots Nation panel Friday on “voting rights,” Jealous argued that in addition to all the other reasons he thinks Americans shouldn’t have to show a photo ID when voting, Voter ID laws should be abolished because they put transgender Americans at a disadvantage.

“As many people know, I have an adopted brother who’s transgender and he typically doesn’t dress the way he does when he hangs out in the Tenderloin when he goes to a government office,” Jealous said, referencing a notorious LGBT community in San Francisco. “And so if you show his ID you know and he would hold it up to his face, it looks like two different people.”

Using that logic, transgender Americans also shouldn’t have to use an ID to get on planes, buy liquor or perform any other activity that legally requires people to prove their identity.

I keep saying it, the Left will do or say anything to gain and hold, more power

Obama’s newest executive order is a step backwards, and a white flag to the race pimps

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama signed an executive order Thursday directing federal officials to design a government-wide strategy for making the federal workforce more diverse.

The three-page order directs the head of the Office of Personnel Management, a deputy director at the Office of Management and Budget, the President’s Management Council and the chairman of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to develop the strategy within 90 days. Agencies then have 120 days to work the plan into their hiring and recruiting.

An Office of Personnel Management report says that in fiscal year 2010, the federal workforce was 66.2 percent white, 17.7 percent black, 8 percent Hispanic, 5.6 percent Asian/Pacific Islander and 1.8 percent Native American. It was 56.1 percent male.

Obama is planning to unveil job creation proposals next month. Some black lawmakers and leaders have criticized him for not directly addressing unemployment among blacks.

Blacks and Hispanics have been hit hard by the recession and are suffering unemployment rates of 15.6 percent and 11.3 percent respectively, higher than the 9.1 percent national average.

Ben Jealous, president of the NAACP, said fighting job discrimination is as important for minorities as job creation.

“We are a country where it’s easier for a white male with a felony record to find a job than a black man that has never committed a crime, and that in itself is a crime,” Jealous said.

Obama panders to his Far Left base again. Fact is, Obama might end up being the most divisive president in our history. The Left certainly has ramped up their level of intolerance the past three years. And please, let us understand what this is about. It is NOT about fairness. It is about giving more power to the federal government, which is exactly what Obama has been about
