“Clinton spoke for 31 minutes with the aid of a teleprompter, alleging that ‘hundreds of thousands of registered voters in Texas’ are being disenfranchised by a conspiracy of conservatives who want to freeze out Democratic-leaning voters.
And elsewhere, she said, in the Carolinas, election officials have changed the location and open hours of polling places in order to flummox poor and minority voters.
Clinton also complained that state and local officials in southern states have crusaded against early voting plans, same-day voter registration, and pre-registration systems that target 16- and 17-year-olds in high schools.
Changes to voting laws in the South came fast and furious after a 2013 Supreme Court decision that revoked key provisions in the Voting Rights Act.
That law’s ‘special protections,’ as Clinton put it, had forced southern states with histories of discrimination to get permission from the federal government before putting new election laws in place.”
“She was a staunch advocate for the Voting Rights Act, which had helped make it possible for her to be elected,’ Clinton said Thursday, lamenting that the federal law’s ‘heart has been ripped out’ by America’s most senior jurists.
In the wake of that decision, Clinton said Thursday, Americans have seen a torrent of ‘new laws that make it harder than ever to vote.’
She warned against ‘a sweeping effort to disempower and disenfranchise people of color, and young people and poor people from one end of this country to the other.’
Minority communities’ feelings of being especially challenged on Election Day, she said, ‘just didn’t happen by accident. And it is just wrong.”
They think that they want a populist war because they think that they can manipulate the outcome.
They think wrong
Their minions will not win and they, in the end, will not be safe and in control
This will not be confined to rioting in the streets with a semi political outcome.
This will be war in its fullest extent
I grow weary of waiting.
