The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude. – Amendment XV, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution
The left loves to paint the United States as a racist nation. It has done so – and continues to do so – as Egypt devolves rapidly into one of the most racist and repressive countries in the world. The kicker is the American left – to include the mainstream media – helped to lay the groundwork for Egypt’s current regime.
As the left in America attempts to bully conservatives, it blatantly ignores what should be its real targets – in Egypt.
Via Al Arabia:
A group of Egypt’s Christian women voters were banned on Saturday in Cairo’s Nasr City from casting their ballot in a disputed constitutional referendum, an Al Arabiya correspondent and AFP reported.
Nasr City was the scene of mass rallies last night as Islamists who support President Mohammed Mursi took to the streets.
Details of banning Coptic Christians from voting are not immediately available, but earlier the opposition National Salvation Front was quoted by AFP as saying that a judge in Nasr City forbade Christians from casting their vote.
Whenever the western right points out that it was Republicans who were responsible for ratifying the fifteenth amendment in 1869, the left points out that back then, Democrats were today’s Republicans and vice versa. This is a lame attempt at revisionist history and the left’s attempt to support the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt only shines a light on that fact.
