Remember when the U.N. sent election monitors to 44 of our states to monitor our elections? They didn’t send the monitors to Iran or Russia or El Salvador, they sent them to the U.S. thanks in large part to hard left civil rights groups like the N.A.A.C.P. That group isn’t about “colored people” as much as it’s about the hard left.
Tennessee is fighting back according to the Knox Blogs. They have a bill – HB2410 – before the governor that is one sentence long: “Any representative of the United Nations appearing without a treaty ratified by the United States Senate stating that the United Nations can monitor elections in this state, shall not monitor elections in this state.”
It was co-sponsored by Sen. Frank Niceley, R-Strawberry Plains and approved without debate 23-2. It has been sent to Gov. Bill Haslam for approval.
The N.A.A.C.P. has been fighting for communist causes in recent years and the once great organization is finding relevance in the statist ideology. They, along with other Marxist civil rights groups, asked the U.N. to monitor our elections as if we are a Third World nation.
In September 2012, the N.A.A.C.P. appealed to the U.N. Human Rights Council to investigate U.S. voter ID laws in the U.S. The Human Rights Council was planning to appoint Qaddafi to the council until his demise if case you are wondering how relevant they are. Members of the Council include countries like Iran and Cuba.
At the same time, the N.A.A.C.P. went before the U.N. to discuss their case to allow felons to vote. Many states do allow felons to vote – it is a states rights issue.
Their claim before the U.N. at the time was outlined in a paper, “Defending Democracy: Confronting Modern Barriers to Voting Rights in America, which detailed a plethora of alleged voter suppression initiatives, including voter ID laws and the rights of felons to vote. Felons are an issue because of what they say are the large number of African-Americans who are felons. They are also opposed to ACORN practices being questioned. ACORN is a corrupt Marxist organization that now goes by many different names, most of which have the word “change” in them.
They praised Eric Holder’s attempts to block voter ID laws. I guess it is too difficult for them to get a photo ID. Surely, they are insulting themselves beyond belief and have little self-pride to even make such a claim.
They have also gone to the U.N. saying voter ID laws disadvantage transgenders. Imagine having Iran consider this question!
They more recently asked the U.N. to charge George Zimmerman who was found innocent in the Trayvon Martin murder case. They wanted the U.N. to supersede U.S. law. It’s not about our nation of laws for them, it’s about getting what they want.
The U.N. membership includes communists, socialists, dictators, and so on, people whose values run counter to ours. Do we really want them monitoring our elections?
Tennessee is also working on banning ObamaCare and nullifying federal gun control laws. It sounds like a good place to move if you value freedom and are looking for a free place to live. Definitely don’t move to New York.
