We Could Defeat Domestic Terrorism With The “For The People Act” Or Something

Religious and civil rights leaders are apparently unhappy that certain people are allowed to vote

Religious, civil rights leaders urge Congress to take actions to combat domestic terrorism

Representatives from religious and civil rights organizations outlined several specific steps at a Senate hearing Tuesday that members of Congress should take to combat domestic terrorism and violent extremism, including passing legislation to expand and protect voting rights.

“Congress must pass the For the People Act,” Wade Henderson, CEO of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, told members of the Senate Homeland Security Committee.

Enacting the sweeping elections and ethics bill is necessary to “push back against the great white supremacist lie that encouraged the Jan. 6 insurrection and has given rise to” several state vote-restriction measures, Henderson said, referring to the false claims promoted by Donald Trump and other Republican officials that he lost the 2020 election due to widespread voter fraud. Democratic lawmakers from across the country are rallying in support of the For the People Act in Washington this week, urging the Senate to pass the legislation before leaving town for summer recess.

These people are Fascists. They have zero problem with all the violence from the BLM/Antifa folks, who literally firebombed federal buildings and destroyed/looted lots and lots of businesses. Instead, they want to pass a law that creates one party rule and destroys the 1st Amendment.

“In the last few years, our nation has witnessed horrific acts of violence, such as the massacres at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh and a shopping center in El Paso that targeted Black, Jewish and Latino Americans,” Democratic Sen. Gary Peters, the committee’s chairman, said in his opening remarks.

Peters said he fears that these deadly attacks, along with more recent acts of violence targeting the Asian American community as well as the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, “are a signal of something worse to come.”

Almost all the attacks on Asians occurred in cities run by Democrats, and a goodly chunk of them were committed by blacks, not really known for voting Republican.

“If the federal government does not take swift action to address this festering threat, I fear we will see more tragic attacks and lose more lives to domestic violent extremism,” he said.

Yes, you should be disturbed by members of Congress deeming all who oppose the Democrats agenda as domestic terrorists, utterly amping up the rhetoric.

    Perhaps moderate nuCons can moderate the violent activities of reactionary nuCons, e.g., condemn the storming of the US Capitol in hopes of installing tRump as Dear Leader for Life. That would be a start.

    Maybe pro-democracy nuCons (if any are left) could rally around making voting accessible rather than attempting to suppress voting as is happening in so many Red States.

    • Kye says:

      There was no “storming” of the US Capitol in hopes of installing as dear leader for life. By now even a fuking idiot partisan like yourself should realize if we were to “storm” a federal building we would bring our guns. Only you fascists had guns and you murdered an innocent patriot mother.

      Why is burning down and looting 26 American cities NOT an insurrection but a protest that got a little out of hand (no burnings, no statues torn down, no looting done) called an insurrection? Do you morons have any concept of Scale? Twenty six Americans murdered in the “summer of love” last year but you don’t care. That’s pure evil, that’s pure hate. Billions of dollars in damage but that’s okay with you Nazi’s cause your people did it. That’s your double standard in full operation. Denying there were inconsistencies and abnormalities in the election these Patriots were protesting and closing your eyes to the election theft is the REAL voter suppression. It amazes normal Americans that slobs like you can call trying to define election law to include LEGAL VOTERS think it’s suppression yet trying to have “vaccination ID’s” to stop people from working, shopping for food or going to the doctor is okay.

      Why do you hate so fuking much? Why? You seem to want to harm, hurt or penalize everyone you disagree with. Where does all that hate come from Elwood?

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        You’re clearly no longer happy in America.

        There was no election theft.

        Why are you filled with such hate and anger? Just because tRump was soundly defeated?

        • Kye says:

          That’s your response? To tell me I’m “clearly” no longer happy in America?

          There clearly and most certainly was election theft and your unwillingness to even investigate it is prima face proof. Your complete lack of ability to comprehend 100million Americans do not believe Junta Joe won is amazing. We’ve shown you the evidence which of course you ignore and keep on spouting your newest Big Lie.

          So don’t start your usual shit trying to project what I pointed out about you back on me. Won’t work. You see, I’m a Patriot who loves his country. It’s my birthright. My family has fought for America for over 200 years.

          Once again your pathological obsession with Trump creeps in your post. It’s like all you have is Trump and your deep seated hate for America, Whites, Christians, Jews and of course Truth.

          You are a truly ruined and hateful soul. We pity you.

        • est1950 says:

          IF there was NO election theft then why are you here every day 12-14 hours a day posting there was NO election Theft?

          IF there was NONE, why do you feel you have to keep reminding anyone that there was NO election Theft?

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Because tRump and his mob (e.g., Kye) keep claiming, against all evidence, that the election was stolen.

            All we do is repeat the truth. How pitiable that so many anti-democracy Americans believe/feel/wish the election was stolen. It wasn’t. If it was stolen, the right-wing machine would find evidence.

            It appears you right-wing haters have trouble with arithmetic. Kye claims 100 million Americans think tRump was cheated out of his rightful throne and you claim I’m here 12-14 hr a day. You should conduct a forensic audit of the comments section and see who types more words.

    How do they pack so much used food into one sentence?

    “To combat domestic terrorism..” What a clown show-apparently 1-2 billion dollars in damages, about 700 police officers injured and 25 or so deaths due to BLM “terrorism” doesn’t count.
    “Attempting to suppress voting in red states”. Maybe you could prove that point, J.

  4. Kye says:

    “Attempting to suppress voting in red states” Tell the lie, repeat it often, it then becomes the truth. But only to ignorant leftists who after being SHOWN THE EVIDENCE still refuse to admit the truth.

    “Attempting to suppress voting in red states”

  5. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    We fully understand the need for right-wingers to push the Big Lie that “The election was stolen!” whether they truly believe it or not.

    It enables state level nuGOPs to change the voting laws to suppress the vote of Americans who tend to vote for Democrats.

    The problem the nuGOPhers are attempting to solve is NOT voter fraud, it’s democracy. The nuGOP has a problem with democracy!

    You’re terrified that “those people” will take the country that “you” built!! And you will destroy the nation to keep it as is.

    The nuGOPhers just saw their presidential candidate trounced for the second successive national election and they no longer hold the House or the Senate. The nuGOP is afraid of democracy.

    Isn’t the right to vote the most precious of US rights? Isn’t the right of citizens for self-determination a right?

  6. Jl says:

    “We fully understand the need for right wingers to push the Big Lie that the election was stolen…”. I see-as opposed to us understanding the need for left wingers to push the Big Lie that voter integrity measures are “voter suppression”? J’s hypocrisy knows no bounds…

    • Kye says:

      “J’s hypocrisy knows no bounds…”

      Yet his hate knows no limits. Go figure.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      The problem you’re trying to solve is not voter fraud, it’s voter access.

      But maybe we’re making voting too easy. Let’s compromise. Picture voter IDs absolutely required. Only in person voting. No early voting, no mail voting, no absentee voting, no drop boxes. State police on site. Have 1 polling place for each 10,000 registered voters but only in cities with 100,000 or more residents (rural folks can drive there if they’re serious about voting). Polls open on voting day from 6PM to 6AM the next day.

      This will enable much tighter security at the polls. No fraud!! And it will save money.

      Voters in states without a qualifying city can select the single largest city in their state.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      jill,

      Since the right has not been able to find any credible evidence of voter fraud, what problem are the hundreds of new red-state voter laws intended to solve?

      Do YOU really believe that Donald J. Trump received more votes than President Biden? LOL.

      Some red states are taking oversight away from the state Sec of State (if a Dem) and handing it to the GOP legislature.

      And then:

      Rep. Gary Tauchen started circulating the bill among colleagues on Jan. 5, the day before rioters stormed the Capitol to contest the results of the 2020 race, his office said.

      If the proposed bill, which Tauchen unsuccessfully tried to pass in 2007, becomes law, one elector would be allocated for every Congressional district a candidate won, with two additional electors allocated to the statewide winner.

      Wisconsin currently allocates electoral college votes based on statewide results; in 2020, Biden won Wisconsin, securing 10 electoral college votes. Forty-eight states allocate electoral college votes based on the popular vote; just Maine and Nebraska use congressional district outcomes in their allocation.

      The advantage for GOPhers is that they’ve gerrymandered districts to such an extent that GOP pres candidates could win the majority of electoral votes in a state while losing the state overall popular vote!! Brilliant.

      GOPhers hate democracy.

      • Kye says:

        Of course we hate democracy it’s little more than dictatorship of 50% plus 1. Our Founding Fathers hated democracy also because they knew what fascist nazi’s like you would do in a democracy. That’s why they gave us a Constitutional Republic which the demofascist party overthrew in an illegal election. You control all branches of government, most states and all the fuking media and you still bitch if we win an election. Would you rather live in a one party nation? I hear Cuba and N.Korea have openings.

        BTW, your above argument is against Gerrymandering (a Democrat creation to fix post Civil War elections against blacks, as usual) . If you want to eliminate Gerrymandering I’m all for it but I bet you won’t. Who do you think benefits more from Gerrymandering, Republicans or demofascists?

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Kye and Doogie Hoser are the two most honest right-wingers here. Kye admits he hates democracy and Doogie admits he believes Black Americans are stupid and lazy.

          White christian men such as Kye feel superior to the “great unwashed” American citizens, brown, black, gay, Muslim, atheist… As Kye says, men like him built America so it’s only right that it should belong to men like him.

          But today men such as Kye are looking down the barrel of a 12g demographic shotgun. To facilitate their authoritarian takeover of America they keep pushing The Lie that somehow the last national election was stolen. They even tried to overthrow the certified election results by tampering with the state legislatures, the courts, and finally storming the US Capitol as Congerss met to certify the vote.

          Frankly, I say fuk all you authoritarian wannabees. In Missouri, the voters voted to end partisan gerrymandering but the GOPher legislature blocked the will of the people, just as they did Medicaid expansion.

          Yes, GOPhers like Kye hate democracy. White men know best.

      • Jl says:

        J, since the left can’t find any credible evidence of voter suppression,,what’s the problem with making sure only those eligible to vote are the ones voting? “Do you really think Trump received….”. I’m not talking, nor have talked about “number of votes” on this site. But thanks for noticing. But in a classic J bait and switch, notice he can’t prove his original assertion on voter suppression, so goes into round two with another unsubstantiated claim of gerrymandering. Yes, J, only red states do that…..

      • Jl says:

        J-would this be evidence of your imaginary “voter suppression” on display in India? https://i2.wp.com/www.powerlineblog.com/ed-assets/2021/08/Screen-Shot-2021-08-02-at-9.00.00-AM.png?w=954&ssl=1

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Jill,

          Do you really want to take voting from the states and make it a federal responsibility? OK. Issue every American citizen an automatic registration with a federal voter ID card. Good idea. Every polling place can have a picture on file to compare to the voter in front of them.

          • Kye says:

            The government already has an automatic voter ID card it’s called a Social Security card. And with todays technology we don’t need pictures just do what every bank does and put a chip on the SS card. Next problem you narrow minded Neanderthal.

            If banks can issue permanent credit cards that can be read in every state and nation in the world we can issue secure voter ID cards that can do the same. But then dead people, felons, illegals and minors couldn’t vote demofascist….twice or ten times!

            Why do you hate honest elections for Americans? What are you afraid of?

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Good idea you fading troglodyte! Did you realize that non-citizens can obtain SS cards/numbers.

            Anyway, automatically register every citizen, issue a voter ID card/number automatically.

            But you do not want every American able to vote.
