The problem with large-scale purge efforts such as Colorado's—and a similar effort in Florida, in which officials sent letters to 2,600 registered voters, warning that they would be purged unless they showed proof of citizenship within 30 days—is that the lists are typically full of mistakes. In Miami Dade, where most of the targeted voters in Florida live, more than 98 percent of 562 people who responded to notice letters proved that they were indeed eligible citizens. The majority of those American citizens were Latino.Link.
F-ck these racist bastards. That's really the most I can say about it. These racist Republicans are destroying our country. People emigrate here and do everything right and they still get treated like sh-t by racist Republicans. Then the same racist Republicans wonder why some of these Latinos break out a Mexican flag every once in awhile.
The Justice Department needs to drop the hammer on all these right wing hate groups. How is it legal that some Karl Rovesque mystery right wing hate group can just drop a bogus list on a state government and then some dirt bag Republican government official takes it as the gospel truth and goes out and harasses minorities? How is this good for our country? How is this even legal?
Seriously if someone petitions the government with a big list of names that are allegedly fraudulent they need to put up a CASH bond of $1,000 per a name. If the Black/Latino the racist claims is not a US citizen proves they are a US citizen then the victim of the right wing racism gets $900 and $100 is used to compensate the state for the time they wasted doing the bidding of racists. This BS has to stop.
Time for some capitalism. Time to make the racists put some skin in the game.
