Conservative Smackdown of the Day: 8-21-2011

But...but...but...they might vote in their own best interests instead of for Republicans!

Awarded to Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO) for the following:

Coffman announced a bill to that would “repeal a section of the 1973 Voting Rights Act that requires jurisdictions with large populations of nonproficient English speakers to print ballots in more than one language.”

Another day, another Republican attempt to suppress the liberal vote. Because even a Teabagger is smart enough to know that if you constantly bash Hispanics as violent, drug dealing, illegal immigrants that come here and drop anchor babies they are not going to vote for you. They will vote for anybody but you.

Solution? Keep them dirty Mexicans from voting by pretending its about “speaking English” (despite the fact the US intentionally does not have an official language)  or the mythical beast of “widespread voter fraud” (which somehow can never EVER be proven, just constantly alluded to by the Right).

Oddly enough, my grandmother has been in this country for over 60 years and her English is TERRIBLE which is apparently a genetic trait passed on to me because I’ve been trying to learn Spanish since 6th grade and I’m still embarrassingly bad at it. So according to the Reich Wing, my grandmother should have her right to vote taken away but making it difficult, if not impossible, to do so.

Because nothing says “democracy and freedom” like restricting both in a bid to illegitimately hold on to power.

Congratulations, Mike Coffman! You’re a scumbag!!
