Democrats Vote the Mentally Disabled

David Horowitz was one of the founders of the New Left in the 1960s and an editor of its largest magazine,Ramparts. He is the author, with Peter Collier, of three best selling dynastic biographies: The Rockefellers: An American Dynasty (1976); The Kennedys: An American Dream (1984); and The Fords: An American Epic (1987). Looking back in anger at their days in the New Left, he and Collier wrote Destructive Generation (1989), a chronicle of their second thoughts about the 60s that has been compared to Whittaker Chambers’ Witness and other classic works documenting a break from totalitarianism. Horowitz examined this subject more closely in Radical Son (1996), a memoir tracing his odyssey from “red-diaper baby” to conservative activist that George Gilder described as “the first great autobiography of his generation.”

I am incredibly steamed this Thanksgiving Holiday over what the Democrats are doing to my country. Everybody by now knows – or should know – how readily Democrats conduct election fraud, and how determined they are to defend it. James O’Keefe and others have taken videos of paid Democratic operatives encouraging citizens to vote twice. O’Keefe was even able to claim Attorney General Eric Holder’s own ballot at a district polling place by claiming to be him, and then to vote in his place. Democrats have promoted Motor Voter laws and same day registration, and month-long election days to help them mobilize the votes of people who are so unconnected to the political process and so uninterested in the country’s future, and perhaps so incompetent to understand what voting entails that they require keepers to see that they get to the polls and then vote the “right” way.  In the election that put Al Franken in the Senate by a few hundred votes, more than a thousand felons voted illegally because of the loose laws that govern the polling booth – laws the Democrats want to make even looser. It is in fact the number one civil rights issue of the NAACP this year to give felons the right to vote. So we know that Democrats have little respect for the election process, and we should assume they will attempt to pursue their victories by any means necessary.

But even knowing this, I was not prepared for a conversation I had at Thanksgiving dinner today with my brother-in-law, Henry, who has lived most of his life in a home for the mentally disabled, and though now in his forties has the intelligence level of a six-year-old.

“Obama saved me,” he said to me out of the blue.

“What do you mean?”

“I voted for him for president and now he’s saving me.”

I was taken aback by these words, since Henry had no idea who Obama was, or what a president might be, and would be unable to fill out a registration form let alone get to the polling place by himself. So I asked him how he knew that and how he had registered and cast his vote. In halting, impeded speech he told me that the people who take care of him at the home filled out “the papers” to register him to vote, told him how Obama cared for him, even taught him the Obama chants, and then took him to the polling place to vote. They did the same for all of the mentally disabled patients in their care, approximately sixty in all.

This is so appalling in its contempt for the voting process, which is the very foundation of our democracy, and in its cynical exploitation of my brother-in-law and the other patients in the home, many of whose mental capacities are even more limited than his that I am at a loss for words to express it. I hope poll-watching groups like “True the Vote” will comb the rolls of residents at other homes for the mentally disabled, and attempt to stop this particular abuse. I hope that people who care about our country will make electoral fraud a focus of their political efforts, and work to protect the integrity of the voting process.

    hey remember when mitt romney ran for president?

    bwahahahahahaha

    • corrcomm

      So it’s all just a big joke, huh? A failure of election integrity is just something to laugh about in your “mind”?
      You fit right in with the Democrats, I’ll say that much.

    • Poppakap

      Yeah, I remember. It seems all the mentally deficient were conned into voting for a failed, lying, socialist believing he was Santa Claus.

    • Joseph Hertzlinger

      It looks like one of the mentally-disabled Democrats showed up.

    • kafir4life

      foolish lily…….the best thing about all this is that YOU will suffer with everybody else at the paws of President Stinky (BO). It's not just going to be the wealthy, the successful, the non-gov't dependent taxpayers. It'll be you too, lily.

    what would one expect from the lefties?? they have no soul nor care for anyone else’s-they are so very unhappy- and they put their unhappiness onto others along with their guilt–they are coarse (just look at obama and his ‘enemies’ comment or the ‘revenge’ one).inept(fiscal cliff anyone) rude and unamerican is the only word i can think of to sum it all up–i pray they get what they want–the end of a free people

    You're a monkey and deserve to die.

    What can we do? Now that we know fraud is endemic to our elections surely we are not left without a cure for this dis-ease. So what is it? Our system of government will die if no remedy is found.

    Now that fraud has helped to reelect Obama, a failure at everything, the country has already begun to decline in strength and vitality. But even now it's not to late to save it if we knew how.

  • Western Spirit

    What can we do? Now that we know fraud is endemic to our elections surely we are not left without a cure for this dis-ease. So what is it? Our system of government will die if no remedy is found.

    In fact one of the country's founders, John Adams, stated that our Judeo-Christian religion is vital to the survival of the nation because of the character it installs in its citizens.

    Therefore to answer my own question we need a rebirth of freedom preceded by a new adherence to our faiths that build character.

  • lily longflower

    righties are such sore losers.

    they inflicted 8 years of w and dick on the country and feel no shame for blaming their poor decision at the polls back then on democrats today.

    bwahahahahaha

    such idiots. very entertaining idiots.

  • Carlos David Aguilar

    Your response is childlike. Pointing out a sick and disgusting tactic that democrats used to gain votes is not being a sore loser it’s hopefully pointing out fraud that can be corrected. If I recall Democrats were probably the most hateful group of people I’ve ever seen when it came to President Bush and his elections, wake up drone.

    I work as a precinct captain in my home precinct in the San Fernando Valley section of Los Angeles, CA. The L.A. County Registrar of Voters website includes a detailed precinct-by-precinct listing of how each precinct voted. For each precinct they list the number of VAP (Vote At Poll) and the number of VBM (Vote By Mail) ballots. The VAP total for my precinct is listed as 585, which exactly matches the number that I turned in. I can't verify the VBM total because many were actually mailed in, as opposed to the many that were turned in at our precinct. My precinct's registration is approximately 3-to-1 Democrat vs. Republican (yes, I'm in the minority). I looked at the vote totals for my precinct on the Registrar's website; for every candidate/proposition the vote was approximately 3-to-1 in favor of the Democrat candidate or position. On most races other than the Presidential race there were approximately 100 voters who did not cast a vote – probably people that voted for President and stopped at that point. My point is only this: I trust the results here. I may not like them, but I do trust them.

    Why the rant about felons voting? The Constitution gives every American the right to vote. It says nothing about felons losing that right. Voting by felons is a state matter and 11 states and the District of Columbia allows felons to vote. And why not? If you have done your time and paid your debt, what is the point of depriving you of a Constitutional right. Almost all felons committed crime that have nothing to do with voting. Allowing felons who have served their time to engage as citizens might help them stay out of jail. There is no evidence from the 11+ states that allowing felons to vote has resulted in any fraudulent voting or other voting related crime.

    I can think of a few members of Congress that shouldn't have the vote, but your average run of the mill felon – I just don't see the problem.

    It is true that there are serious problems with America's election system. A Republican voter reg firm in Sacramento CA, Momentum Political Serices, has ben indicted for changing Democratic registrtions to Republican. The GOTV firm hired by Mitt Romney was caught in FL shredding Democrtic registrations and had to be fired by the RNC. Voting machines in Toldeo, Dayton stopped reading ballots. Voting machines in Milwake registered Democratic votes as Republican. Democratic operatives were filmed trying to get people to vote twice. Thousands of people were removed from the voting rolls in Florida although they had been voting for years. The Pennsylvania elections office made robocalls telling people the wrong date to vote. Every commercial voting machine in the country uses software that a middle school student can hack. The head of the Pennsylvania Senate bragged that shortening early voting would give Romney the election. And on and on. Manipulating, suppressing, defrauding the vote has become standard operating procedure in the US. We need a Federal overhaul of voting and a national standardization of voting rules so they can't be manipulated for political gain.

    I work the polls as a Republican….I have seen caretakers wheel severely mentally disabled people in who could not even sign the book in front of me…the nurse held their hand and signed for them, then went into the booth with them. In one case through the curtain crack I saw her push the buttons for the disabled guy in the wheelchair. This is a guy who was babbling and head rolling, had NO idea where he was or what he was doing.
