Hypocrisy Alert: AG Eric Holder Requires Journalists Show Photo ID to Attend His NAACP Speech on Evils of Photo ID Laws
File this one under truth is stranger than fiction, hypocrisy and you just can’t make this stuff up …
Attorney General Eric Holder gave a speech today to the NAACP conference in Houston, TX on the evils of photo ID laws; however, in order for the media to get in and cover the event, wait for it, wait for it … they needed to show photo ID.
Holder described photo ID laws as racist and a poll tax. What a sad, pathetic man. Worse yet, what a sad and pathetic Presidential administration that was voted into office. If they are not doing class warfare, they are playing the race card. Just curious, how does anyone conduct any form of business or travel in today’s society without a photo ID?
“Many of those without IDs would have to travel great distances to get them and some would struggle to pay for the documents they might need to obtain them,” Holder said in a speech to the NAACP on Tuesday, referring specifically to a law being implemented in Texas. “We call those poll taxes.”
Check out the media advisory that was handed out to have the media show photo ID’s to hear a race-bating and divisive speech in the evils of photo ID laws. Hmm, wasn’t it the Michelle Obama book signing that also required that individuals show photo ID as well?
As correctly stated at Powerline, “liberals require identification to get access to anything they think is important. Where they part company with us is that they don’t think preventing voter fraud is important.”
