Voters in this small city decided overwhelmingly last year to do away with the party affiliation of candidates in local elections, but the Obama administration recently overruled the electorate and decided that equal rights for black voters cannot be achieved without the Democratic Party.Sure, I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, man, this is so outrageous that it must be satire from The Onion, right?
The Justice Department's ruling, which affects races for City Council and mayor, went so far as to say partisan elections are needed so that black voters can elect their "candidates of choice" - identified by the department as those who are Democrats and almost exclusively black.
The department ruled that white voters in Kinston will vote for blacks only if they are Democrats and that therefore the city cannot get rid of party affiliations for local elections because that would violate black voters' right to elect the candidates they want.
No, this is indeed fact. If I follow the logic of the the DOJ - and I am having problems with finding any authority for Holder & Co. to overturn a local community's decision arrived at through the democratic process - Blacks only vote for Blacks who are Democrats and a White man won't vote for a Black man unless he is a Democrat, and merit does not count, just party affiliation and race.
Oh, and we are war with Eurasia. We have always been at war with Eurasia. Eastasia is our ally.
