Elie Mystal gets to the nub of the Republican gut-out-the-vote movement:
Yet black people in this country regularly vote en masse for the Democrat at levels that would make warlords sheepish. There are lots of white people who look at that and assume something is fishy. All the voter fraud commissions you read about are organized around the twin conceits that black people can’t possibly hate the Republican party this much, and if they do there can’t possibly be enough of us to swing an election.
Of course, up here in “evidence based” land, the black vote is the result of the Republican party’s ongoing strategy of ignoring black people and, latterly, being expressly racist towards black people in hopes of energizing racist white voters.
