Conservative Columnist Say Registering The Poor To Vote Is ‘Like Handing Burglary Tools To Criminals’
A conservative columnist is equating the poor to criminals, and he isn’t being shy about it either. Matthew Vadum, the author of a book published by World Net Daily says registering the poor to vote is “un-American” and “like handing out burglary tools to criminals.”
In a column for the American Thinker, Vadum states,
“It is profoundly antisocial and un-American to empower the nonproductive segments of the population to destroy the country — which is precisely why Barack Obama zealously supports registering welfare recipients to vote. Encouraging those who burden society to participate in elections isn’t about helping the poor,” Vadum writes. “It’s about helping the poor to help themselves to others’ money. It’s about raw so-called social justice. It’s about moving America ever farther away from the small-government ideals of the Founding Fathers.”
So the slew of voter suppression laws being passed in GOP controlled states across the country isn’t really based on the fear of voter fraud as Republicans would have us all believe. It’s about stripping the right to vote away from the poor. And Mr. Vadum just came right out and unashamedly admitted it. The right wing and the wealthy are waging war against the middle class and the poor. If we do nothing to put an end to this right wing crime against humanity, there will come a day when all rights for the American people cease to exist.
