Has YMBJ actually expressed support for suppressing votes and/or Kemp? Or is Henry just being his usual bigoted self with that comment?

He certainly has espoused views that the ends justify the means.

But let him speak for himself, instead of providing pro bono support with your trolling.

The man hasn't even posted in this thread, yet Henry is calling him out by name with these baseless accusations while also claiming others are trolling?

*rolls eyes*

What makes it extra-funny is that Henry has personally engaged in voter suppression tactics himself, going back decades....while I have seen nothing of the kind from YMBJ.

So the Attorney General of Georgia takes significant, verifiable and obvious steps to prevent African Americans from voting in Georgia's Gubernatorial election and Penquin is mad at Henry Vilas for suggesting that YMBJ might support such voter suppression.

YMBJ takes PRIDE in his toeing of the party line. We're talking about a shit-sucking Nazi cunt who defended Roy Moore, a man so deplorable that he lost to a DEMOCRAT in a Statewide election in ALABAMA!

Is "shit-sucking Nazi cunt" a bit too aggressive for you?

Fine, YMBJ is a "shit-sucking Nazi Dickfor". Would you like to defend the obvious and open voter suppression in Georgia, Penquin?

Despite what pj had to say in his profane-laced lil' meltdown YMBJ hasn't expressed any support for Nazism; Henry didn't merely "suggest" YMBJ "might" support Kemp's actions; and I certainly do not support those voter suppression tactics in GA. (Quite the opposite actually - I regularly encourage everyone...regardless of party-affiliation or political viewpoints...to vote in addition to volunteering/donating to the candidates they personally support.)


Kinda funny how the same guy who goes on&on&on about how it should be illegal to tell lies about other people is constantly telling lies about other people.

Yeah? What did I lie about? That YMBJ toes the party line no matter what? That YMBJ actually defended Roy Moore?

Here's one for you... YMBJ likes to post crap he hears on right-wing radio. I know, because I listen to right-wing radio. While constantly ridiculing "Black Lives Matter" he took time out to ridicule the removal of a confederate monument here in Madison. The day after Vicki McKenna made it the centerpiece of her show.

So "Black Lives Matter" = "bad". Confederate monument = "good".

Yeah, he's a Nazi. A hate-filled racist partisan who's probably cheering Trump's promise to ignore the Constitution and end the centuries-old policy of granting citizenship to any child born within the United States. Did you hear Trump's also promising to house "the caravan" in a tent-city to protect us from those ne'er-do-well brown people who are literally THOUSANDS of miles from our border? Fear-mongering? Check. Racism? Check.

If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's probably a fucking Nazi. But you can call it a Nationalist if you want.

He is under no obligation to voice an opinion just because you demand it. You're the one who's trolling here.

Getting back to the topic, Republicans are really going all-out this year. I guess their big efforts this year (tax cuts for the rich, attempts to repeal ACE) isn't selling so well.

The disenfranchisement of Native Americans in N. Dakota is pretty outrageous.

Tribes: these laws are arbitrary and capricious
SCOTUS: fuck you

Tribes: we'll make a good faith effort to comply with your arbitrary and capricious rules
SoS: fuck you

Since the 8th Circuit lifted the block on the new law, tribal governments have scrambled to hand out hundreds of new ID cards, usually for free. But thousands of Native Americans still don’t have identification with a residential street address deemed valid by the state. And as the examples above illustrate, hundreds more simply cannot get them at all. To make matters worse, North Dakota’s Republican Secretary of State Alvin Jaeger has indicated that he will strictly enforce the residential address requirement and refused to say whether he’ll accept newly printed tribal IDs.

Of course.

There is no better way to make sure illegal aliens don’t vote than to keep people whose ancestors were here for tens of thousands of years from voting.

This is one reason why I can never bring myself for vote for Republicans, no matter how upset I get with the Democrats. The GOP will do something this outrageously racist just to depress the Democratic voter turnout.

The Dems have wasted no time addressing one of my pet issues. HR 1 is a pretty comprehensive set of election reforms.

Of course, Mitch McConnell will be having none of it. Fine. Democrats can spend the next two years talking about free and fair elections, and the R's can spend two years defending voter suppression.
