Sanders Resorts to Fear-Mongering and Identity Politics
Manchester, NH — Koinonia News
Democrats, led by Bernie Sanders (D-VT) are upping the ante on identity politics, pandering to a new, as of now, untapped voter base — mass murderers and domestic terrorists.
The fear-mongering, I’m referring to in the title above, comes from his insistence that republicans have an agenda to suppress the vote. His message to “Republican governors and legislators around the country who are trying to suppress the vote: If you don’t have the guts to participate in free and fair elections, get the hell out of politics. Our democracy is supposed to be about one person, one vote, and that is why we are going to make voting easier, not harder.”
Of course, this is part of the rationale behind the democrat inspired race wars related to voter ID. Though US citizens are required to have ID to purchase alcohol, firearms, and travel on airplanes, they act as if certain minority groups are not smart enough to obtain these forms if ID. Actually, this us subterfuge, and an excuse to allow voting access to include illegal immigrants.
Sanders said he thinks everyone, even the convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, should be allowed to vote in American elections. Sanders, along with many in the democrat party are working to lower the voting age to 16.
Sanders offered his stance at a CNN town hall Monday when asked whether he thought felons should be allowed to vote while they’re incarcerated, not just after their release.
He was pressed on whether it was appropriate to enfranchise sex offenders or someone convicted of a heinous crime like Tsarnaev, who with his brother carried out the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing that left three dead and injured hundreds more.
“Yes, even for terrible people, because once you start chipping away and you say, ‘Well, that guy committed a terrible crime, not going to let him vote. Well, that person did that. Not going to let that person vote,’ you’re running down a slippery slope,” Sanders said in response to a question about restoring felons’ voting rights.
For quite some time now, the Democrat leadership have been creating a false narrative that “republicans are against minorities.” This ideology is exemplified in their vilification of voter ID laws.
In this understanding, Sander’s use of the term “disenfranchisement,” his false narrative begins to make sense. In closing his talk, Sanders put the blame on “Republican Governors” as having a supposed agenda for voter suppression.
The question, and Sanders’ response, was one of the more interesting moments in a marathon round of voter forums at Saint Anslem College in New Hampshire, where five Democratic hopefuls made their cases to young voters.
In all but two states—Maine and Sanders’ home state of Vermont—adult citizens convicted of a felony are barred from voting while incarcerated, according to the group Nonprofit Vote, a consortium of nonprofits and social service agencies that promote voter participation.
Fourteen states and the District of Columbia automatically restore voting rights upon release from prison. Five states reinstate voting rights once a felon is released and discharged from parole. Another 21 states restore voting rights after a felon completes any prison sentence, parole and probation.
In six state states, the chance of restoring voting rights depends on the type of conviction and requires an ex-felon to petition the state government.
In Iowa, ex-offenders must also pay all fines and fees to the court that are part of a sentence. Once complete, individuals convicted of a felony can apply to have their voting rights restored—which can only be done through the governor or the president.
Kentucky’s constitution permanently bars all individuals with past felony convictions from voting, unless the governor restores the right to vote, according to Nonprofit Vote.
President Trump had this to say about Sanders and the Democrat agenda: “The extremity and radicalism of the 2020 Democrats knows no bounds,” Trump campaign press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told Fox News. “Giving imprisoned terrorists, sex offenders, and murderers the right to vote is an outrageous proposal that is deeply offensive to innocent victims across this country, some of whom lost their lives and are forever disenfranchised by the very killers that 2020 Democrats seek to empower.”
It’s time for America to wake up to the social engineering and manipulation of our society under the socialist agenda of the Democrat party. Their A-Moral party platform is rapidly breaking down every vestige of what America has stood for, for the last 200+ years.
The hidden agenda is to give every resident beginning at 16 years old, citizen or not the right to vote. Ever since LBJ the agenda of the Democrat party is to build up their voting base by pandering to low information voters with promises of entitlements.
