The US Supreme Court has just struck down a section of the
40 50 year-old Voting Rights Act, and as could be predicted, the usual suspects are being irrational. Like MSNBC's Melissa Harry-Perry:
Damn, that citizenship thing was so great for awhile.— Melissa Harris-Perry (@MHarrisPerry) June 25, 2013
And the same network's Chris Hayes:
I am slightly surprised by how physically enraged I find myself.— Christopher Hayes (@chrislhayes) June 25, 2013
Thankfully, there's Breitbart's Ben Shapiro for some rational common sense:
Voter turnout gap between whites and blacks in AL in 1965 was almost 50 percent. 2004: 0.9 percent. Leftists: But nothing has changed!— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) June 25, 2013
UPDATE: Hey look! It's Ron Marz again, offering still more evidence of his prodigious intellect!
Just don't ask Ron how today's SCOTUS decision would do just that. He'll ignore you. Because, to coin a cliché, ignorance is bliss. Meanwhile, enjoy a non-emotional, 21st century rational examination of today's high court decision.
