The proposal in The Nation is to double count votes from Blacks and Native Americans. Effectively everyone else would have half a vote. It looks like the Democratic Party is going back to its Jim Crow roots, and some are openly supporting racial discrimination to deny voting rights.
Are the recent “irregularities” with fractional votes and alleged movement of votes between candidates simply a first step in the reparations plan?
In the Jim Crow era, the Democratic Party had white-only primaries in several states, and the party supported laws that greatly restricted voting rights based on race. Are they headed towards a similar solution today to assure one-party rule throughout the country?
Leading Democrats are openly supporting packing the Supreme Court, packing the Senate with statehood for DC, Puerto Rico, and possibly other states, and abolishing the electoral college. They have also stated that election of another Trump needs to be impossible.
“Vote reparations” is a convenient way to formally legalize what big-city Democrats have been doing for many years. I am sure they could appoint enough justices who would agree.
The title of the Nation article says otherwise. Here is an excerpt that is very specific:
. . . there’s another way to undo the damage of the Electoral College and other structurally racist political institutions: We can implement vote reparations by double-counting ballots cast by all Black residents. . . Vote reparations should also extend to Native Americans.
The proposal is to use a blatantly racist system to fight “systemic racism”. Sounds like par for the course for Democrats.
