Wharton: Arizona voting rights advocates wrong, corrupt, illegal

Posted 9/22/21

I rarely find it useful to respond to liberal articles calling for fruitless change; however, this one is symptomatic of the hogwash that has America on her knees (“Arizona women protest for voting rights,” Sun City West Independent, Sept. 15, 2021). It is loaded with emotional triggers and no substance to back up their baseless accusations.

Wharton: Arizona voting rights advocates wrong, corrupt, illegal

Posted

I rarely find it useful to respond to liberal articles calling for fruitless change; however, this one is symptomatic of the hogwash that has America on her knees (“Arizona women protest for voting rights,” Sun City West Independent, Sept. 15, 2021).

It is loaded with emotional triggers and no substance to back up their baseless accusations.

The article implies that there is a large contingency of Americans who are prevented from voting. However, not one example of which Americans whose voting rights are being suppressed.

This is nothing more than a front for Democrats who want the ability to manufacture votes ex nihilo (Latin for out of nothing), harvest votes, and manipulate mail-in ballots. League of Women Voters, People for the American Way, Voting Rights Advancement Act, For the People Act, Voting Rights Act, Declaration for American Democracy Coalition — all fronts for corruption of our venerated right to vote. In the words of that little old lady who led the coalition for more burger on the bun, “Where’s the beef?”

This article is full of innuendos and not one iota of supporting examples. Suggestions abound in the form of government agency references and trigger phrases like. “It was an honor to be advocating for all Arizonans and all the people of our country so they can take part in our democracy and vote without barriers” ... you did not say anything as to who in Arizona or America are being denied the “right” to vote. What are the barriers?

Not everyone in America is here legally or are citizens. Not everyone in the American to which Arizona belongs has our best interests at heart. Not all people have the mental capacity to vote. Nursing homes are full of persons with Alzheimer’s, brain damage from chronic illegal drug use, and a myriad of other maladies that incapacitate unfortunate victims. They are vulnerable to vote harvesting. Not only is that immoral, but illegal. It happens. There are those in prison for serious crimes against humanity.

Are you advocating for their right to vote? How about the terrorists like those who trained here in Phoenix and flew the jets into the World Trade Center towers, the Pentagon, and tried to reach the White House? Who knows — you didn’t specify?

The signs bearing emotional triggers wave in hopes that those voters and legislators who have no capacity for critical thought will succumb to their malintent: “No More Excuses; Voting Rights Now”; “Protect My Vote”; “Pass the ‘For the People Act’”; “Save Our Democracy” — battle cries of liberal lies. Again, no mention of who you are marching for. Who or what is standing in the way of any qualified voter to exercise his or her right to vote? The broad brush of “Arizonans” or “Americans” does not cut it. In that mass of humanity are those who wish Americans harm and those not capable of voting.

There is no substance in your pleading. Contained somewhere in all your rhetoric is the implication that requiring voters to have identification somehow keeps them from voting. How? There are many forms of identification available to every citizen who wants one. Transportation is not excuse, there are many volunteer agencies who gladly provide this service for those immobilized for any reason to reach voting poles. No voter left behind.

Another emotionally charged quote is, “Our Democracy is facing the greatest threat of our lifetimes.” I could not agree more on many levels. The greatest threat of all is the perversion of the sacred rite of voting. Democrats are desperate and are scavenging every possible crevice, no matter how illegal or immoral or how many lies it takes.

You will someday stand before God. He is the master of critical thinking.
