When left-wingers fear the electorate is not on their side it’s not a problem.
They simply change the electorate.
But conservatives don’t have to put up with it. Finally Republican lawmakers are challenging in court Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s (D) unprecedented decision to unilaterally restore the voting rights of 206,000 convicted violent and nonviolent felons in his important battleground state. The move, which critics say violates the state constitution, is particularly noxious coming as it did two days after the state’s General Assembly adjourned. (I wrote about this in FrontPageMag last week.)
As I wrote:
The push to mainstream felons comes as Barack Obama, the most radical left-wing American president in history, is defining deviancy down by attempting to de-stigmatize criminality. The Left views criminals — especially minorities — as victims of society, oppressed for mere nonconformism. Because it needs their votes, the Left is pressing for the restoration of felons’ voting rights. And it also supports legislation “banning the box,” that is, banning employment applications that ask if the applicant has a criminal record.
