GOP’s Brian Kemp Purged 1 in 10 Georgia Voters: I’ve Got the Names


Fucking republicans, i cant say what I am thinking right now


https://www.gregpalast.com/gops-brian-k ... the-names/


Quote:
My lawyer had to threaten Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp with a federal lawsuit to force him to turn over the names of over half a million voters whose citizenship rights he quietly extinguished.

This past week, I released the name of every one of these Georgia voters Kemp flushed from voter rolls in 2017. If you’re a Georgia resident, check the list. If your name is on it, re-register right now. You only have through tomorrow (October 9).


Bottom line is GOP will work overtime preventing people from voting, they know there are WAY more of us than them so blanket vote denying works in their favor.

Read a good book last week called One Person, No Vote: How Voter Suppression Is Destroying Our Democracy by Carol Anderson who is a professor at Emory University. She documents how from just after the Civil War to today politicians have place roadblock to keep African-Americans from voting. From the poll tax to gerrymandering to voter suppression she shows exactly how and why republicans are doing it. She also explained why Glen Strange upset Roy Moore last year in Alabama's special election even through there was voter suppression in full force going on. It's a short book, about 250 pages but it is well-researched and she includes a ton of references, by chapter, for everything she writes about. Reading it you come away from it realizing how insidious and far reaching the efforts are by the republicans in stripping away minorities voting rights to keep themselves in power even when they are in the minority.

by blocking a small portion of the voters directly they suppress a larger number indirectly so it feels like only others are hurt by it.

SC just upheld a blatantly unconstitutional law for ND voters.

Now WAPO is on it

Stealing the election, right now, pretty much done deal


https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/pl ... 5e6a3ced29



Quote:
Republicans may be about to steal an election in Georgia


It isn’t often you get to watch an election being stolen in real time, but that might be what is happening right now in Georgia.

When it comes to the nationwide, comprehensive, carefully planned Republican effort to suppress the votes of people who are likely to vote Democratic, particularly racial minorities, there is a menu of techniques Republicans employ — voter ID laws, voter purges, limiting early voting, closing polling places in heavily minority neighborhoods, and racial and partisan gerrymandering.

But what Brian Kemp is doing right now is truly unique.

Kemp, the Republican nominee for governor, is locked in an extremely tight race with Democrat Stacey Abrams. He also happens to be the secretary of state, the official in charge of all elections in Georgia. You might expect him to step down or recuse himself from overseeing his own election in the interest of fairness and public confidence that the fix is not in, but that’s not how Republicans do things. Kemp isn’t just overseeing the process, he’s apparently also doing everything he can to keep as many Democrats as possible from the polls in November.


This is why normal means wont resolve dealing with FILTH like this, sorry. How do I say this, what PEACEFUL way is there to prevent this? Tell me.

Got a phone number for you to memorize.

Image

If you see voter caging or suppression, call that number. They will have people on the ground in all 50 states and ready to respond.

You can contact - or volunteer with - or just donate to - these organizations. They are nonpartisan. They're doing the work. Not just talking the talk.

https://866ourvote.org (Election Protection Coalition)
https://www.electiondefense.org (Election Defense Organization)

Again, memorize this number: 1-866-OUR-VOTE. Call it if you see ANYTHING hinky. They will investigate, and they will take action.

Detroit hotel residents, many low-income, given 30 days to move

Quote:
People living at Park Avenue House — a hotel at 2305 Park Ave. known as an affordable housing option in the city — received notices this past weekend that they have 30 days to vacate.........


Detroit apartment tenants evicted, have 30 days to move

And tonight on Rachel Maddow's show, she did a story about Waller County Texas, home of Prairie View A&M, a predominately black college in a predominately white county finding numerous ways to deny the students their right to vote in spite of a Supreme Court ruling that they couldn't legally do it. The latest plan was to send false registration forms to the students telling them to register at two different addresses for their college. Then the day after the end of registration, the county changed the rules due to Robert's court gutting the Voting Rights Act to allow Waller County to legally challenge the students right to vote in Waller County due to the multiple addresses on their registration forms which they were instructed by the county to use.

In California Vote by Mail Ballots are already being sent out. You can mail them in of course, or if you so choose you can turn them in at your Polling Station.

Or you can go to your local Polling Station on Election Day and "Surrender" your VBM Ballot and vote in person at the Polls. You give the clerk your VBM Ballot and they will tear it and then write "Surrender" on the Ballot and they issue you a new ballot. You can use your VBM as a Voter Guide, just remember to give to the clerk when you are done.

California also has same day Voter Registration, but you would have to the County Registrar of Voters to do that.

California also allow "Ballot Selfies". You can take a picture of your ballot as long as you do not include other voters in the pic or ballots of other voters.

Remember to Vote and if possible take at least two people with you to the Polls....we need overwhelming numbers on November 6.

As an outsider, I can say we're not impressed with how you're doing this democracy thing.

A basic tenet of "freedom" is voting. You're not doing it right at all.

"Home of the free" is increasingly being seen as facetious.

Hmmpf. :| You ought to look at the turnout numbers. The US and Canada are about the same.

Hardly about the same. According to your links, Canada's 2015 turnout rate was 68.5% compared to the U.S 2016 turnout rate of (estimated) 55.5%. That's 13.2 percentage point difference which, statistically, isn't insignificant.

It depends on the use to determine what is insignificant. And that 13.2 percentage point difference is comparing a high with a low on just the last elections. I was commenting on averages and trends.

Canada: The lowest voter turnout on record was in 2008, when voter turnout fell to only 58.8%.
Voter turnout in the 2011 federal election, at 61.4%, was the third lowest in Canadian history.
Voter turnout rose sharply in the 2015 federal election to 68.5%, the highest turnout since 1993.

Average 62.9%


US: Voter turnout in 2008 was 62.3%. In 2012 it was 57.5%. In 2016 it was 55.5%.

Average 58.4%

A difference of 4.5%. When the comment is "You're not doing it right at all," implying they are doing it right and the difference is 4.5%, that is not significant enough to support that statement.

They're about the same. :|

Hey girls, FYI, your daddy is a white christian bigot confederate asshole.

Georgia and Kemp Sued.

My Social Security Card shows my full middle name, my driver's license only my middle initial. Apparently I can't vote if I'm a Georgia resident.

Voter turnout is not the only thing I would look at.

Canada does not seem to have the same level of U.S. voter caging, suppression, and intimidation we do.

Nor, it seems, as much history of what often looks like apparent election fraud (as opposed to voter fraud, which is virtually nonexistent, but apparently often invoked to "justify" the above.)

BTW -- I think that has much to do with, incidentally, the fact that they do not have our history of slavery and civil war over it.

I posted this in another thread, but is very important.

African-American Political Consultant (Republican) is fed with trying to defend his party after Republican Secretay of State Kemp has been found to blocking 53,000 Voter Registration Forms. Kemp is also the Republican Candidate for Governor. Over 70% of forms Kemp is blocking are from African-Americans living in Georgia. Kemp's Oppenent, Democrat Stacy Adams is vying to become the First African-American Governor of Georgia.....

Canada tends to do what it can to get people out to the polls, to make it easier for them to vote.

Actively discouraging and stopping people from voting is what my point was.

You can't claim "freedom" while seeking to stop people from participating in the democratic process.
