Left wing activists are so concerned about election fraud that they are turning to United Nations officials. That's right, the U.N. group that's charged with ensuring elections occur properly in third-world nations will be spending its time in America. For the left to be concerned about election fraud is a joke, but to enlist the U.N. for sovereign U.S. elections is simply ridiculous.
As reported by The Hill, the U.N. will be specifically looking for "voter suppression activities by conservative groups."
The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), a United Nations partner on democratization and human rights projects, will deploy 44 observers from its human rights office around the country on Election Day to monitor an array of activities, including potential disputes at polling places. It's part of a broader observation mission that will send out an additional 80 to 90 members of parliament from nearly 30 countries.
Liberal-leaning civil rights groups met with representatives from the OSCE this week to raise their fears about what they say are systematic efforts to suppress minority voters likely to vote for President Obama.
The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the NAACP and the ACLU, among other groups, warned this month in a letter to Daan Everts, a senior official with OSCE, of "a coordinated political effort to disenfranchise millions of Americans -- particularly traditionally disenfranchised groups like minorities."
This is absolutely crazy. These so-called civil rights groups sure had no problem when Black Panthers were intimidating voters at polling locations. Yet, they are now concerned about voter suppression?
And of all groups to be involved... the U.N.? These are the guys who put terrorist nations on the Human Rights Committee. The U.N. also has absolutely NO jurisdiction over American elections, so why don't they find something better to do.
In a day and age, where the integrity of the ballot box is being called into question more and more, it seems odd that these groups are suddenly speaking up. Americans support voter ID laws, yet the left and civil-rights groups oppose those measures at every turn. Real election fraud and voter intimidation cases go unprosecuted under the Obama administration. And now they want U.N. help?
