NAACP marchers protesting voter ID laws advised to bring . . . photo ID

NAACP Moral March

The NAACP is leading a “Mass Moral March” in the North Carolina capital on Saturday to protest recent Republican-led legislation, including state election law changes requiring identification to vote.

Ironically, the group’s list of “Important Do’s and Don’ts for Marchers” includes bringing a photo ID.

“DO bring photo identification (drivers’ license, passport or other valid photo id) with you and keep it on your person at all times,” the document says.

“This year’s annual people’s assembly will be held in the wake of a powerful push back to the immoral and unconstitutional policies supported and passed by Gov. Pat McCrory, Speaker Thom Tillis, Senate Leader Phil Berger, Budget Director Art Pope and other extremists in the North Carolina General Assembly during the 2013 Session,” the HKonJ People’s Assembly Coalition’s website says.

The website offers several downloadable documents, including the “Moral March Map,” bus registration, permission and medical forms and the “Do’s and Don’ts” list.

The march has drawn its fair share of critics.

“The so-called moral march on Raleigh is anything but moral,” Tami Fitzgerald, Executive Director of the North Carolina Values Coalition, said in a news release. “It is spearheaded by groups that support abortion and homosexual marriage.”

North Carolina Republican Party Chairman Claude Pope and other GOP leaders called the march divisive, saying state NAACP leader has become the de facto head of the North Carolina Democratic Party, according to the News & Observer.

“What we are saying today is that civil discourse needs to return,” Pope told the News & Observer.  “[The] ‘moral march’ is nothing more than a partisan political rally endorsed by the Democratic Party and fringe far-left groups like MoveOn.org and Planned Parenthood, which have recruited liberal activists from other states to attend [Saturday’s march].”

    I wonder what these people do when other services require a photo ID. Do they march up and down in front of the offices or meet in squares to protest with signs. Everyone sees through this using race again to side step what should be done to ensure you are who you are and keep things fair and square, isn’t that what Obama preaches every chance he gets?

    • Tabitha Bliss

      And not one has said a thing about the fact Obamacare requires an ID to collect subsidies..
      They’re so transparent in their corruption.

      • SusieQ

        touche!

      • Loweezy Smith

        Right and they are more than willing to get ID carsds for food stamps and welfare.

      • Myrtle Linder

        This is because they honor nothing but Obama, not GOD, not the country, forever Obama, their God. They should know, somebody should tell them, he is only a temporary god, the real GOD will come soon to take HIS people home. Read
        1 Thessalonians 4: 13-8.

        • Doug

          Please give me a time frame so I can plan my vacation.

    • Loweezy Smith

      Dos anybody believe they picket the DMV because they have their[pictures taken for ID just as everyone else does.

    • Loweezy Smith

      I have a problem figuring out how this is racist since EVERY BODY has to have an ID – no matter the color of your skin. That is just plain stupid.

      • Edna Haydon

        True, if your caught on the street after dark by police in most states without a ID of some sort, you can be held until you are able to prove who you say you are. You can also be fined for the stay in jail also. FREE Is not free any longer not even being in jail!

      • babbott

        It became racist when the NAACP decided to organize the protest because everything they do is geared toward racism. They are not interested in the advancement of anyone other than “colored people”.

        • Claire Garcia

          Thus, their name. LOL

    • Claire Garcia

      One of their constant arguments against voter ID is that poor people are not able to acquire IDs of any kind. This ID requirement for the march puts the lie to THAT.

      • JHorvathJr

        Mississippi DMW will issue non-driving photo ID as proof of residency. All you need do is show proof that you live here. A tax receipt or rent receipt or even your NAACP card with your address on it.

        • Claire Garcia

          I’m sure this is true; it used to be true when I lived in TX. But, the point is, they do not want ANY voter to show ID. In CA, when you go to the polls and I (deliberately) offer my ID, they almost act as if I’d thrown a snake at them, by the looks on the election workers’ faces or they look insulted. There is something very wrong with this.

          • LittleRoot_48

            Coming out of the left coast, that doesn’t surprise me. I once know a woman who moved to CA simply because she found out the welfare benefits there were greater than where she currently lived. I’ve lived in FL and AL only and have ALWAYS had to present a photo ID to vote.

          • Claire Garcia

            I was born and raised in TX, I’m Hispanic, and always showed voter ID. Did I feel that was racist? That asinine thought never crossed my mind. It is this biracial president that promotes the anger between races—the opposite of what voters envisioned would occur.

  • Pat Hayes

    Do they not see the irony in being required to show a photo-id to ptotest voter I.D.? Some things are just too ridiculous and this is one of them. Heaven save the blacks from their so called “leaders”.

    • Pamela K. Cahoon Laub

      Probably not. That would require logical, independent thinking.

      • Glock22

        That is something liberals do not have a concept for.

        • JHorvathJr

          I am certain that some “leaders” tell their people that logic and reason are racist code words too.

    • BDPSU

      They only see what they’re told to see. They’re brainless, Libtard sheep.

    • LittleRoot_48

      They wonder why they are often described as “not the brightest bulbs in the lamp.” Well, hellooooo, let this be your first clue!

  • sgtburg

    It’s so all the illegals can vote.

    • Marine Vietnam Vet

      More than likely. They want everything to go THEIR way w/o any hassle. They are afraid of IDs having to be shown because many of them have only have illegally acquired IDs. Why aren’t other races protesting??? This is outrageously stupid because most people have to show IDs for many things. These people need to join the human race!

      • Mary Hunter

        Its interesting you are told NOT to show anyone your social security number except employers and yet you cannot get into any hospital without one- unless you are comatose and I am not sure even then LOL-BUT they also tell you to carry your medicare care on you at all times which is your social security number? Excuse me?

      • LittleRoot_48

        We ARE protesting. So far, all we get for our effort is to be called racist. I have not cared about that for years now. It is a word that has been overused in the last 5 years.

  • me

    Remember when the DNC required ID’s to get into the 2012 DNC National Convention in Charlotte? And forbade babies to enter the arena, and voted out God three times?

  • marshabaker

    They should put as much energy in looking for a job!!

    • LittleRoot_48

      Forget that, now that Dear Leader and company have released us from the “burden” of having to work for a living. I wonder if he has figured out how recent college grads will pay off those student loans if they don’t have to get a job. I don’t think “pursuing a hobby” pays many bills. My hobbies never did.

  • Aaron Barnes

    well if u don’t have a id than how can u prove who u r or where u live when u go vote i think they dont support this because they are the kind of people who want people go vote in other voting places and to mess with parties elections of candidates

  • Jose Hernandez

    all that they want is to make fraudulents votes as they did in the two last elections and I say:if they dont want photo ID’s…why they gave drive licences to illegals?(what they really want is to prepare an army of raccoon to be ready to vote for hillary-benghazi-gate clinton)

  • Angel Nova

    That is the reason why we have an illegal president because voter identity is not a requirement. There’s millions of illegals in this country and they do not care what happen to America, they will vote for any Democrat who will promise them status. Let us have voter identity at all polls.

    • LittleRoot_48

      I suspect if the Lord doesn’t come soon, the Chinese will take over this country and what will these “ne’er do wells” do then?

  • Connie Mcqueen

    You need a photo ID to buy: cold pills, Rx, beer, alcohol, plane ticket, cigarettes, insurance, rental car, a home, a car, open a bank account, claim a lottery prize, use a credit card, apply for Obama care, sign up for food stamps, sign up for welfare, sign up for social security, get a job, apply for a drivers license, go legally into another country, join the military…did I forget anything?? Oh yeah, and to protest against states requiring ID at the voting polls!!!! Being a Liberal should be a “qualifying condition” for disability!!!!

    • SusieQ

      These groups tries to put everyone on the defensive, they are wrong but want to continue their practice of cheating at the polls. I can’t believe any state putting up with this bull for this long. Just go out and march and all of a sudden they are right, WRONG! Excuse me, they have to comply like everyone else. Your skin color does not give you license to ignore a common sense practice that insures fairness for everyone.

      • babbott

        You are correct, but this is a result of the Democrat party cheating on elections. Notice the article talked about “Republican-sponsored” legislation, so it’s imperative that the Democrats attack it. Using the known race hustlers is the best way they know to get the job done. Democrats are obvious that they couldn’t care less about the good of the nation. They are concerned about staying in power.

    • Marine Vietnam Vet

      WELL STATED!!

    • Claire Garcia

      I think it is!

    • LittleRoot_48

      A “mental” disability.

  • quillerm

    The left is expending more time and resources fighting Voter ID than it would take to get one. Canada, Mexico, and Europe have all passed Voter ID laws to ensure their elections are valid and can be certified. Why are liberals afraid of verifiable elections?

    • Marine Vietnam Vet

      Let ‘em protest. That’s all they’re good at anyway. They really do need to GET A LIFE!!!

      • Claire Garcia

        …AND a job!
