Mark Levin on lawsuit against NC Voter ID law: ‘This isn’t a civil rights issue, Democrats want to promote fraud!’

One of the complaints against the new Voter ID law in North Carolina is it mandates that someone have a ‘government ID’ when verifying who they are when they vote at the polls. But Mark Levin, on his show last night, was perplexed at why government ID would even be an issue:

Why does the government issue photo IDs? It’s not the private sector issuing, it’s not the Klan issuing. The government is issuing voter ID so the government can know who you are. Now why does the government want to know who you are? Because they want to know who they are giving drivers licenses to; if a police officer stops you they want to know who you are. They want to know if you have insurance. They want to know your age if you want to buy booze. And I can go on and on. There wouldn’t be government issued photos IDs but for the government.

So my question is [this]: Is the government – are all state governments racist because they are requiring you to have a photo ID, that is a photo with your pigmentation on it? I mean, this is so asinine what the Left is up to in this administration.

You know what it is? Let’s just be honest, they want to defend fraud. They want to defend fraud. You can’t get on an airplane without a government issued ID. You can’t buy booze without a government issued ID. You can’t lease an apartment without a government issued ID. You can’t do damn near anything without a government issued ID.

Except vote! Anyone can vote without a photo ID at the polls!

Have you ever tried to check into a hotel without a government ID? Have you ever tried to rent a car without a government ID? Don’t we hold voting, like, at the top? Haven’t we fought the civil rights movement for people to have the right to vote? Why is it ipso facto discriminatory against minorities for people to show an ID? If you have a specific case in which a state, a town, a county or somebody has discriminated against you because of your race, you can bring a federal lawsuit under the Voting Rights Act, still today and a state lawsuit under state voting rights acts, still today!

But voter integrity is something the Democrat party rejects. Because they want multiple voting. Because they want dead people voting.

Who uses it? The big cities use it, among others. When LBJ was running for president or first, for the Senate, it was rural areas that were using it.

So this isn’t some civil rights issue. This is to promote fraud!

That’s only a third of the clip. There’s a lot more. Listen below:

    That democrats want to promote fraud is as plain as the nose on our faces…and we shouldn’t blow it by allowing them to demagogue these much needed voter ID laws.
    It makes me think of an old country love ditty called: “If My Nose Was Runnin’  Money, I’d Blow It All On You”.

    “You’re too stupid to vote”.
    That phrase applies to 51.26% of Americans.

  • waffle_anna

    Thing is… the left cannot sue. The SCOTUS upheld Voter-IDs constitutional in 2008.

  • 57thunderbird

    I live in a rural area and have had to show my ID to vote for nearly 40 years.

  • stage9

    57thunderbird That’s because the law still applies in rural America. It doesn’t in urban America. Anarchy and fraud does.

  • 57thunderbird

    stage9 57thunderbird I’m glad I don’t live in the city.You know that Thomas jefferson has a little known quote about cities?He said,whenever we pile upon one another in large cities as they do in Europe,then we will be as corrupt as Europe.

  • njmom

    Scoop, you’re right. Its all about fraud because if everyone had ID it would be hard to cheat and think how many elections the Dems would lose???? We’d probably be saying President Romney.

  • Sp00ks

    I live in a rural area and have never been asked for photo ID. I show mine every time I vote so they can get the address and 9 out of 10 times the person thanks me.

  • Bac Si68

    I seriously doubt it will make a difference, what make you think the law would be enforced where it would be needed the most? The colleges and the urban areas are controlled by left leaning liberals and far left Decomcrats.

  • sDee

    stage9 “Your too stupid to be voted for”,  applies to a larger majority.

  • TexasPGRRider

    Rshill7  And, as far as those who have passed away and somehow voted; I think Willie Nelson`s workin` on a new song: “I Miss You So Much, It`s Almost As Bad As When You Were Here”….

  • TexasPGRRider

    Besides photo ID for voting, there`s more to address here. As antiquated as it may sound, how about paper ballots, hand counted and verified in public view. It may be time consuming, but I would trust that TONS Better than computers….especially computers owned by a George Soros company

    Another fraud:
    The Jim Hightower ‘Lowdown’ for August has a piece about the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Evidently it is no more about ‘free trade’ than NAFTA was. There are bits about relocating factories, about internet monitoring, etc. Another bit is “Last year, Obama’s top trade rep, Ron Kirk, declared that locking out the people is necessary, because the deal’s details would outrage Americans and spook Congress from rubber stamping it. In short, to win public approval of TPP, the Obamacans say they must keep it hidden from the public.”
    how about that from a Lib !!!

  • gracem8

    If I have to get my dog a license, these people can get a photo ID!

  • Laurel A

    He didn’t say one thing I don’t agree with. The only thing he skipped is how proud Democrats are about lying and cheating. I guess they can’t win in any other way.

  • Orangeone

    gracem8 Cat licenses too!  And I have to proof my indoor cats have rabies vaccinations and show my gov’t ID to register my cats.

  • lawngreen

    “Mark Levin… was perplexed at why government ID would even be an issue.”
    I’m perplexed that Mark would be perplexed. It’s as clear as crystal. The dems / socialists / marxists are determined to finish turning America into a socialist nation, and they will do anything to accomplish that. “The ends justify the means.” The Left has no moral standards. they are nothing but criminals. Why the surprise?

    Bac Si68 The fastest way to find voter fraud is to compare college students voting where the college is located and absentee voting at their parent’s address.

  • Orangeone

    njmom And that DL should be bar coded and slid at the polls so you can’t vote twice. It’s mandatory when you walk into a school in my school district.

  • Orangeone

    sDee stage9 I was thinking the 99%ers

  • Orangeone

    I have to show photo ID to buy cold medicine because the druggies buy it to manufacture meth. What about my civil rights?  I’m not a druggie but have to leave a record that I bought Sudafed.  It’s all nonsense. Strict photo ID period for voting.

  • Don’t you find it interesting that the Liberals will ALLWAYS accuse you of the very things they do themselves?

  • USMC 64-68

    Gotta agree w/ Levin – you have to be stupid to vote for socialists (democrats).

  • Anneke9

    TexasPGRRider As someone who has been reviewing voter roll data, the biggest problem I see is with people voting in person and with an absentee ballot.  There’s a way to game the system. If you put the absentee ballot in the mail a few days before the election, it’s pretty easy to show up and vote in person as well.  The process of opening, counting and producing an accurate list of Absentee voters for poll workers is not instantaneous.  People are willing to run the risk that they won’t get caught.

  • Pancake3

    Mr. Levin is smart and coldly analytical.  What a treat to listen to him come to a conclusion.

  • sandg171

    I completely agree with Mark.  The law as it is now makes it to easy for anyone to vote —- even multiple times.  We need to show our voter ID when we vote in order to stop voter fraud.  I believe this is how the democrats won in the last election.  Just my opinion.

  • sandg171

    Orangeone  Exactly, It’s just common sense.
