DoJ Forces Party Affiliation in North Carolina

Assigned Reading: Justice Concludes Black Voters Need Democratic Party
(FROM: The Washington Times)

Voters in this small city decided overwhelmingly last year to do away with the party affiliation of candidates in local elections, but the Obama administration recently overruled the electorate and decided that equal rights for black voters cannot be achieved without the Democratic Party.

The Justice Department’s ruling, which affects races for City Council and mayor, went so far as to say partisan elections are needed so that black voters can elect their “candidates of choice” – identified by the department as those who are Democrats and almost exclusively black.

The department ruled that white voters in Kinston will vote for blacks only if they are Democrats and that therefore the city cannot get rid of party affiliations for local elections because that would violate black voters’ right to elect the candidates they want.

Several federal and local politicians would like the city to challenge the decision in court. They say voter apathy is the largest barrier to black voters’ election of candidates they prefer and that the Justice Department has gone too far in trying to influence election results here.

Stephen LaRoque, a former Republican state lawmaker who led the drive to end partisan local elections, called the Justice Department’s decision “racial as well as partisan.”

“On top of that, you have an unelected bureaucrat in Washington, D.C., overturning a valid election,” he said. “That is un-American.”

The decision, made by the same Justice official who ordered the dismissal of a voting rights case against members of the New Black Panther Party in Philadelphia, has irritated other locals as well. They bristle at federal interference in this city of nearly 23,000 people, two-thirds of whom are black.

This is absolutely insane. This administration’s Justice Department is doing everything it can to undermine racial equality, in the name of racial equality. Just wait until they get their hands on the census and the redistricting which follows.

    Does this mean that the Republican Party is racist because it opposes the Democrat, or black, Party?

    Off topic for this one, but back on topic for Hillary. This sheds a lot of light on her:

    Hillary, Obama and the Cult of Alinsky: "True revolutionaries do not flaunt their radicalism, Alinsky taught. They cut their hair, put on suits and infiltrate the system from within. Alinsky viewed revolution as a slow, patient process. The trick was to penetrate existing institutions such as churches, unions and political parties….

    "One Alinsky benefactor was Wall Street investment banker Eugene Meyer, who served as Chairman of the Federal Reserve from 1930 to 1933. Meyer and his wife Agnes co-owned The Washington Post. They used their newspaper to promote Alinsky….Her series, called 'The Orderly Revolution', made Alinsky famous….

    "Alinsky’s crowning achievement was his recruitment of a young high school student named Hillary Rodham. She met Alinsky through a radical church group. Hillary wrote an analysis of Alinsky’s methods for her senior thesis at Wellesley College. …

    "Many leftists view Hillary as a sell-out because she claims to hold moderate views on some issues. However, Hillary is simply following Alinsky’s counsel to do and say whatever it takes to gain power.

    "Barack Obama is also an Alinskyite…. Obama spent years teaching workshops on the Alinsky method. In 1985 he began a four-year stint as a community organizer in Chicago, working for an Alinskyite group called the Developing Communities Project…. Camouflage is key to Alinsky-style organizing. While trying to build coalitions of black churches in Chicago, Obama caught flak for not attending church himself. He became an instant churchgoer."

    There's more, and it in the gray box on "Background information."

    This is a poster example of the difference between Americans of darker-than-usual skin hue who voted for the decision and niggers in DoJ who voided it.

    so they know voters are to stupid to know who they are voting for. So next they will make the voting booth screen look like a McDonalds cash register. Just have pictures of what/who you want.

    on another note has DOJ done anything about illegal aliens visiting the White House? or is barry's Aunt still not deported yet? Wonder when that court order will actually be followed? Wonder if she is still on welfare?

    She probably wont leave till all the obamas are fleeing in to exile back to kenya.

    nice to remember what news stories have just been left to die.

    You're right about all this. And that intersection mentioned is where I totaled my car (didn't have a scratch on it, but the wreck was a good thing). The police there are *unbelievably* nice! It's a pretty little town, historic, and has great citizens.

    You are right Jeff. This is absolutely stupid, but then this is what this administration is about "planned stupidity" to send this country down. However, I am all for States Rights and re-assertion of those rights. I lived in North Carolina (we are like you Jeff, but with a twist…we bought this N.C home and then put the other house on the market, but it has not sold in three years) and currently own a home there. Kinston is not that big of a town and I believe most voters black and white would be insulted by this last round of stupidity.

    I currently live in a town of 40 houses. We don't even have a ballot. It is a write in for Mayor and the 5 town council seats. Most everyone knows who wants to be Mayor and on the council so now are we going to have to list parties?

    With no party affiliation, the voters may have to actually research the candidates to see where they stand on issues. Dems do not want that because the voters might realize that they agree more with the Repubs on some issues and continue researching.
    Side note- There are 2 law suits in IL for 2 people that were fired when they didn't pass the E verify.
