NAACP Asks UN for Murderer Voting Rights

When voter fraud alone won’t do it, when tossing voter ID laws out the window isn’t enough, when you’re falling behind in all the real polls… then it’s time for all bed men to come to the aid of their party and to fight for the drug dealer/rapist/murderer vote.

Charging that millions of citizens, two-fifths of them black, have been denied the right to vote because of felony convictions, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People called on the United Nations this week to investigate America’s “racially discriminatory election laws.”

An NAACP delegation visiting Geneva hosted a panel on the “disenfranchisement” of U.S. citizens and addressed the U.N. Human Rights Council, which is in session in the Swiss city.

“Today, nearly 5.3 million U.S. citizens have been stripped of their voting rights on a temporary or permanent basis, including more than 4.4 million citizens who are no longer incarcerated,” said Lorraine Miller, who chairs the NAACP national board’s advocacy and policy committee.

“More than two million are African American, yet African Americans make up less than 13 percent of the U.S. population,” she said.

I blame racism. Also rape, drug dealing and murder. But Lorraine Miller doesn’t go nearly far enough. If, as she asserts, the judicial system’s skewed conviction rates are the result of racism, then it might be time to abolish the judicial system completely so it doesn’t interfere with the voting rights of people who are not at all murderers, even if they possibly killed some people.

NAACP Senior Vice President for Advocacy Hilary Shelton told the panel that the restrictions on voting “prevent those most in need of an advocate from the ability to elect someone who will represent their concerns:  the need for a decent public education, for a health care system that addresses their specific demographic needs, as well as the creation of decent jobs, a functional criminal justice system and other basic human needs.”

Not to mention the need to get rid of all those police departments and to do something about those pesky, “Stand Your Ground” laws.

Maybe criminals should even have their own congressmen and senators. We could dedicate a special legislature elected entirely by criminals and consisting entirely of criminals. We could call it the Democratic Party.

This is the second NAACP visit to the HRC in six months. Last March NAACP president Benjamin Todd Jealous addressed the council on voter ID and other laws, which he said would “disproportionately block members of minority groups from voting.”

The next session will be about ending the discriminatory practice of barring Undead-Americans from voting when statistics show that there are large numbers of former slaves and civil rights veterans who have been prevented from voting due to this barrier.

    Doesn't the NAACP have better things to do than go to bat for violent murders? I doubt many of their victims,most of whom are black,wouldn't like that one bit.

    Why doesn't the NAACP focus on racism and human rights violations in Cuba? Few people know that Communist Cuba jailed the longest-serving black political prisoner in modern history. His name was Eusebio Penalver. and he served about 28 years (from 1960 to 1988) in Castro's prison camp system. I learned about Mr. Penalver from Humberto Fontova's articles and books. Yet few people know about Eusebio Penalver because Academia and the MSMare too busy praising the Castro dictatorship as a "champion of human rights". Now that's so wrong. The people need to know the truth about the Castro regime in Cuba, not communist propaganda.

    I can't believe this. Obama is soft on Mohamed Morsi and now NAACP wants to go soft on criminals in the U.S. NAACP is suppose to fight against racism and fight for the rights of law abiding citizens, not become a criminal entity by supporting criminals. I guess "racism" and "human rights" means something else to the NAACP. If NAACP keeps this up for long, then they need to be abolished as a criminal supporting organization. An organization can start out with founders with hidden political agendas or someone hijacks it and ruins it from the inside. Unfortunately, NAACP is not the only group pulling off these stunts such as this. What NAACP is doing is anti-human rights and anti-freedom because they are giving criminals the upper hand and putting innocent citizens at risk. Imagine a scenario that there was a vote on whether the U.S. should support Israel or not. If there are enough radical Muslims in the prison system and they all vote no, then you add that with all the others that vote no outside of prison, then what basically just happened is that criminal support can dictate one's future. Now that's scary. That's why we cannot allow so-called "human rights" groups to mess with our country.

    The thugs will just elect thugs and eventually murder, theft, and other criminal crimes will become legal if this trend continues. It's "fair", "tolerance", "inclusive" and "diversity" that the liberals and leftists use to disguise their ugly and humanity suicidal agenda.

    They should be able to vote. They (felons) are still U.S. citizens. That was never taken away! And as far as I understand, if they have done their time, paid their dues, restitution upon their release and are WANTING to vote (some probably for the first time in their lives), they should! NAACP is not saying the people should vote while IN prison. NAACP is saying about the felons on release. it is not up to us (other U.S. citizens) to say if they are not able to vote. Do you know if they have turned their life around? Probably not. Don't decide for someone you don't know a thing about. (Noticed that a person can voice their thoughts without political rhetoric). Have a good day.

    15th Amendment !!!

    Article XV
