The NAACP Makes a Great Argument for Abolishing Driver’s Licenses


Ever since the NAACP became a generic boutique of leftist causes, it has become even more of a clown show than usual. The old NAACP at least tried to wrap itself in the mantle of civil rights. The NAACP just spews the latest irrational Think Progress talking points on the usual collection of causes on abortion, gay rights, illegal immigration and now tranny rights.

And being a clown show, the NAACP found a way to combine illegal immigration and tranny rights. That’s the kind of out of the box and out of your mind thinking that the left values.

National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) President Benjamin Jealous threw out a bizarre, new reason Friday for Voter ID laws to be banned in the U.S. – transgenders.

At a Netroots Nation panel Friday on “voting rights,” Jealous argued that in addition to all the other reasons he thinks Americans shouldn’t have to show a photo ID when voting, Voter ID laws should be abolished because they put transgender Americans at a disadvantage.

“As many people know, I have an adopted brother who’s transgender and he typically doesn’t dress the way he does when he hangs out in the Tenderloin when he goes to a government office,” Jealous said, referencing a notorious LGBT community in San Francisco. “And so if you show his ID you know and he would hold it up to his face, it looks like two different people.”

That’s a great argument. But it can’t stop with just Voter ID. Civil rights demands that we outlaw all licenses because of Jealous’ crazy cross-dressing brother whose notions of gender cannot be confined by a single photograph.

That means no more driver’s licenses or passports or photo id’s of any kind. Mr. Obama, tear down that photo ID requirement everywhere.

Oh no, but wait. Uh driver’s licenses are fine for some reason. It’s only Voter ID that presents a problem, for some reason that doubtlessly has nothing to do with encouraging voter fraud.

Oddly, when Holder appeared at the NAACP Nation Convention, a photo ID was required to get in. Jealous’ cross-dressing brother was no doubt hardest hit.

      You have got to be African-American, right? Just posting a bunch of racist rantings so you can point to it and say “look how racist white America is.”

        Well there’s sort of a civil war going on between blacks and hispanics right now, so maybe they are. Or maybe they are just trolling.

        He also wrote:

        “TIME for the NI^^ER WARS!!!!! STOP the DESTRUCTION of AMERIKA!!!!!”

        Nobody defends American sovereignty whiling spelling it with a k. He’s a fraud for sure. Planting seeds so that leftists can point to the “racist conservatives.”

        Leftists have no moral standards at all. Reagan called it correctly many decades ago. So did others even before that.

      I hope you are using the term in the manner Chris Rock did in his 1996 standup routine Bring the Pain, and not in the manner of a, you know, actual racist connotation.

    democraps would do anything to get more votes they could care less about the safety of United States citizens

      and so would Bush and the republicans…you are still deceived by thinking the two parties are representative of freedom and support the constitution…they do not….

  • objectivefactsmatter

    Abolish all picture IDs globally. The new global government will simply use stamps (tattoos) and embedded ID chips. Or they’ll just incinerate you when you’re of no use.

    But it will be so blissful and perfect. And “fair” too. Really fair. Totally “just” from a “social” perspective. Social engineering.

    NAACP the epitome of BOZOISM !

    Well, if being transgendered is the argument, then why not just do finger prints and we’re all good! What an assinine argument.
