Katrina vanden Heuvel, editor and publisher of The Nation, doesn't support military action against Syria, but it appears she does support military strikes against states with voter ID laws, Twitchy reported Wednesday, and made her feelings known on Twitter.
"Because, you see," the Twitchy staff said, "voter ID laws are much, much worse than chemical weapons."
One person on Twitter "fixed" her tweet.
"Maybe we could launch intervention in those cities which are governed by liberals. You know the ones like Detroit," tweeted "Fixing the Left."
"The stupid grows tiresome," one person said. "Prove ID suppresses voting, commie."
Voter ID laws are intended to maintain the integrity of voting, but liberals oppose those laws, claiming they prevent minorities from voting.
But Politico reported that minority voting increased dramatically in Georgia after voter ID laws were enacted in that state, despite cries from liberals.
“Turnout among black and Hispanic voters increased from 2006 to 2010, dramatically outpacing population growth for those groups over the same period," Politico said, citing the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The report also said "Georgia’s top elections official could not point to a single case of ballot fraud the voter ID law had prevented."
Nevertheless, liberals maintain that requiring photo identification to vote is part of a nefarious plot by racist Republicans out to keep minorities from voting.
Liberals, however, never claim that having a driver's license is part of a racist plot to keep minorities off the road.
Some liberals go so far as to claim voter fraud doesn't exist.
An article at Commentary, however, disagrees.
"The assumption that voter fraud is nonexistent requires us to not only ignore most of American political history; it also obligates us to forget everything we know about human nature," Jonathan S. Tobin wrote. "Examples abound in our own day that place the desire to tighten up new rules that more or less allow anyone to show up on Election Day without proof of their identity or having previously registered, or to vote early or get an absentee ballot in a different context than Holder’s specious arguments about Jim Crow."
Liberals, instead, would have us believe that Melowese Richardson, an Ohio poll worker who admitted voting multiple times for Barack Obama, doesn't exist. There are, of course, many other examples of voter fraud, far too many to list here. Instead of dealing with the problem, liberals would turn a blind eye to it and call opponents racists.
And now, vanden Heuvel would like to see military strikes against states like Georgia that dare to do something to prevent voter fraud.
"If you think America's biggest problem right now is that there's not enough civil war, you might be @KatrinaNation," one person said on Twitter.
