North Carolina Judges Strike Down Voter ID Law, Claiming It’s Racist

Two North Carolina judges on Friday struck down a law that required identification to vote, alleging it “was enacted with the unconstitutional intent to discriminate against African American voters.”

The law was enacted in violation of the Equal Protection Clause in North Carolina’s Constitution, the majority of the panel said. The clause says that nobody shall be denied equal protection of the laws nor shall anybody be subjected to discrimination by the state due to race.

Defendants, including North Carolina House Speaker Timothy Moore, failed to show that racial discrimination was not a substantial or motivating factor behind enactment of the law, Superior Court Judges Michael O’Foghludha and Vince Rozier Jr., both Democrats, wrote in a 102-page ruling permanently blocking the measure.

“Other, less restrictive voter ID laws would have sufficed to achieve the legitimate nonracial purposes of implementing the constitutional amendment requiring voter ID, deterring fraud, or enhancing voter confidence,” they said.

The law in question, Senate Bill 824, was enacted after a majority of voters in North Carolina approved it as a constitutional amendment in 2018. Before that, the Republican-controlled state legislature passed the bill and overrode a veto from North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper, a Democrat.

I need an ID to buy cigarettes. Alcohol. To open a bank account. But to vote for the most important position in the Free World? Nope. We believe who you say you are. Fuck these judges. They need doxxed, they need to understand they are not above being scared. I don’t give a fuck they are judges. They are using their “objective” positions to be political. Fuck them. Antifa wants to pull their shit, we need to step up. Enough of the wringing of the hands.

While it is true that we need ID to buy cigarettes and alcohol and to open a bank account, I just don’t believe in the underhanded way that antifa doxxes people. It is a cheap way of fighting and it should not be promoted or pursued. While I do not agree with the decision that these judges came to, we cannot stoop to the level of giving out personal information on people. That is wrong, and for that, I want to state that I apologize for even suggesting that these two judges be doxxed. Sometimes these trying times we are in get us all worked up. I sure wish this country wasn’t as polarized as it is, because it really weighs on an individual, but, I don’t want our side to turn into Antifa and to follow their cheap, underhanded tactics. I think we are better than that. Sorry again.

These activist judges and attorneys have never been on the side of justice. Why do so many people endorse their opinions. After all if there is no justice, then their opinion is just another turd in crapper. If ID was required to vote then the cheating at the box would not be possible or at least more difficult to ignore.

If voter ID is wassist, then too is applying for a dr. lic without an ID to prove who you say you are. And yet illegals can obtain dr. licenses without ID, simply asking for one (kalifukinornia). How about vaccination cards, they must also be wassist. So how should we vote if showing ID is not ethical or legal but only wassist. Should we let anyone vote? How about just sending ballots to everyone in Argentina, how about letting everyone in Russia & chinklandistan vote in our elections. How about Nigeria, Libya, Morroco, Saudi Arabia, Qutar, should we let all them vote in our elections too? These dimwitted morons don’t have the slightest clue or any comprehension at all of what spills out of their pie holes.
