Democrat politicians are notorious for exploiting human misery and despair for raw partisan advantage. “Never let a crisis go to waste,” is a favorite Democrat campaign strategy which epitomizes the bottom-feeding mindset that dominates the way liberals think about elections and manipulating the unwashed masses.
Thus, with crucial mid-term elections just around the corner, and majority control of the US Senate very much at risk, it should come as no great surprise that desperate liberals have resorted to using the bullet-riddled corpse of Michael Brown as a prop to get out the vote.
FERGUSON, Mo. — Down the street from where the body of Michael Brown lay for hours after he was shot three weeks ago, volunteers have appeared beside folding tables under fierce sunshine to sign up new voters. On West Florissant Avenue, the site of sometimes violent nighttime protests for two weeks, voter-registration tents popped up during the day and figures like the Rev. Jesse L. Jackson Sr. lectured about the power of the vote.
In this small city, which is two-thirds African-American but has mostly white elected leaders, only 12 percent of registered voters took part in the last municipal election, and political experts say black turnout was very likely lower. But now, in the wake of the killing of Mr. Brown, an unarmed black 18-year-old, by a white Ferguson police officer, there is a new focus on promoting the power of the vote, an attempt to revive one of the keystones of the civil rights movement.
N.A.A.C.P. leaders are creating a door-to-door voter registration effort with a jarring reminder as its theme: “Mike Brown Can’t Vote, but I Can.”
Senator Claire McCaskill, a Missouri Democrat, is working with others to hold a “candidate school” for people, including young black residents who say they want to serve on a city council or school board but need guidance on what a political campaign requires.
The attempt to galvanize voting comes against a backdrop of intense political struggles over the ballot in the state. In 2000, polls were kept open late in St. Louis because of long lines, and Republicans complained about possible voter fraud — one chapter in what would be a long battle over elections and voting.”
Once again, the Democrat Party is proving that, when it comes to elections, there is no standard of decency which cannot be violated in order to get out the vote for liberal politicians!
