Wasserman Schultz Adds To Racial Divide: "The Reality of discrimination still exists



Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D) addressed the national convention of the NAACP, joining the likes of Al Sharpton, Eric Holder, and Jessie Jackson, to add to  racial divide race-baiters like Sharpton and Jackson continue to exacerbate.

 Wasserman Schultz correctly stated that the Civil rights Act  was vital to Americas “committment to never again permit racial predjudices in electoral process.” We agree with her 100%.

 Wasserman Schultz added that the act was important because it ensured that “minorities ability to participate in elections, but the threat of discrimination still exists,” but then asserted that racial discrimination and voter suppression ran rampant during the 2012 general election.

 Yes, the threat and the reality of discrimination still exists. It existed in 1965,  in 2006 when Congress reauthorized the act, and the  voter suppression efforts during the 2012 cycle, right here  in Florida and across the country.”-Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D)

    What DWS claims was voter suppression in 2012 was actually the incompetence of Dem Supervisors of Elections in PB, Broward, and Dade. Based on some of the stories I heard, it may have actually been intentional.

    Problem – reaction – solution. The D’s create the problem, people are mad, their solution is to further erode the election laws allowing them to steal elections more easily.

    So long as mankind exists, there will always be some form of racism. The problem is people like her and Sharpton will keep the hatred alive otherwise they’d be out of business.

    This is one of the most despicable people in politics!!! She is very good at spinning any subject to the left and when confronted with her BS, keeps talking her liberal rant!!!!

  • John Ferguson

    This woman is irrelevant to 99% of Florida, she is a embarrassment and a waste of oxygen. She lies almost all of the time, has no moral compass and will do or say anything Obama and the Democratic leadership tells her to…she acts like she has no brain of her own?? Pathetic product of libtard upbringing……

      Mr. Ferguson, extremely well stated, except that sadly, she is hardly irrelevant. (That’s what we’d like her to be…)

      Unfortunatly, many politicians in these positions are required to take loyalty oaths to their party. Thus, they must support their party or risk the consequences. Republicans also require loyalty oaths from their party leadership.

    Respectfully, I disagree. I remember those days, and the only significant changes are that literacy tests and poll taxes are forbidden to the states (unconstitutionally). The only significant results are that millions of functionally illiterate and uninformed voters have become chattels to the Demagogue Party, along with people too uninvolved to pay a piddling $10 poll tax, assuring a leftist mega state where all constitutional limitations are ignored (Are you kidding? Are you kidding?). Was it true that these measures impacted the races disparately, as the politicos like to say? Yes of course, but the answer was, and still is, for the black community and culture to accept education rather than dismiss it as “white” and take personal responsibility for their lives and families rather than demanding special privileges in return for their votes.

    How could she complain about the voting process, its stacked in her and her colleagues favor, she’s won the last few elections easily with large numbers. Maybe she feels without so called “voter suppression” even more people could have voted for her.
