This morning, Rasmussen released the results of its latest poll regarding the Texas Voter ID law blocked by the Department of Justice on Monday. 56% polled opposed the DoJ ruling. However, even more disturbing than the ruling was another item in the report:
… the United Nations is now investigating the fairness of such laws in Texas and other states. But voters in this country still overwhelmingly support voter ID laws and don’t think they discriminate.
The United Nations investigating our laws? Indeed. It turns out that several members of the NAACP have gone to a UN meeting in Geneva to present their case to the Human Rights Council
The United Nations Human Rights Council is investigating the issue of American election laws at its gathering on minority rights in Geneva, Switzerland.. This, despite the fact that some members of the council have only in the past several years allowed women to vote, and one member, Saudi Arabia, still bars women from the voting booth completely.
Officials from the NAACP are presenting their case against U.S. voter ID laws, arguing to the international diplomats that the requirements disenfranchise voters and suppress the minority vote.
Of course, the UN has no jurisdiction over our laws, and the NAACP admitted as such. Additionally, the Supreme Court upheld a Voter ID law in 2008 by rejecting the challenge presented to SCOTUS.
This line of events opening the door to the United Nations injecting themselves into American laws is a slippery slope we don’t want to go down. Since it has time to focus on the US, this must mean that the United Nations has already done its job in Haiti, Iran, and other places that are working on fair and free elections as well….
