A VERY AMERICAN COUP

 

i picked it up today, his general argument is very full on, almost to the point of parody but i think that may have been the point.

 

here a short piece you may all enjoy?

 

A VERY AMERICAN COUP

 

I am a citizen of the United States of America.

Our government has been overthrown. Our elected presi­dent has been exiled. Old white men wielding martinis and wearing dickies have occupied our nation’s capital. So who, then, is the man that now occupies 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue? I’ll tell you who: he is George W Bush, ‘President’ of the United States. The Thief-in-Chief. The coup began in the summer of 1999, when Kather­ine Harris, an honorary Stupid White Man who was both Bush’s presidential campaign co-chairwoman and the florida secretary of state in charge of elections, paid $4m to Database Technologies to go through Florida’s voter rolls and remove anyone ‘suspected’ of being a for­mer felon. She did so with the blessing of the governor of Florida, George W’s brother, Jeb. The law states that ex-felons cannot vote in Florida. And sadly (though i’m confident that Florida’s justice system was always unim­peachably fair), that means 31% of all black men in Florida are prohibited from voting because they have a felony on their record. Black Floridians, overwhelmingly, are Democrats — and, sure enough, Al Gore received the votes of more than 90% of them on Novembet-7, 2000. That is, 90% of those who were allowed to vote. In what appears to boa mass fraud committed by the state of Florida, Bush, Harris and company not only removed thou­sands of black felons from the rolls, they also removed thousands of black citizens who had never committed a crime in their lives — along with thousands of eligible voters who had committed only misdemeanors.

How did this happen? Harris’s office told Database to cast as wide a net as possible to get rid of these voters:

people with ‘similar’ names to those of the actual felons, people with the same birth dates as known felons, or simi­lar social security numbers; an 80% match of relevant information, the election office instructed, was sufficient for Database to add a voter to the ineligible list

Before long, 173,000 registered voters in Florida were permanently wiped off the voter rolls. In Miami-Dade, Florida’s largest county, 66% of the voters who were removed were black. Eight thousand additional Floridians were thrown off the voting rolls because Database used a false list supplied by another state, a state which claimed that all the names on the list were former convicted felons who had since moved to florida What state was it that offered Jeb and George a helping hand by sending this list to Florida? Texas.

George W Bush would officially be credited with receiv­ing 537 more votes than Al Gore in Florida Is it safe to assume that the thousands of registered black and His­panic voters barred from the polls might have made the difference if they had been allowed to vote — and cost Bush the election? Without a doubt.

Sixteen months later, George W Bush made the following comment on the victory of Robert Mugabe in the Zimbab­wean presidential election of March2002. ‘We do not recognize the outcome of the election, because we think it’s flawed and we are dealing with our friends to figure out how to deal with this flawed election.’
