Justice Department suing over civil rights violation

The Biden-Harris Department of Justice has been making waves. They often cite how they’re champions of civil rights and liberties. In Attorney General Garland’s mind, they’re #nailingit. Recently they announced a lawsuit challenging what they’re inferring to be a civil rights violation. The particulars of the the suit were laid out in a Department of Justice announcement on Tuesday.

“House Bill 2492’s onerous documentary proof of citizenship requirement for certain federal elections constitutes a textbook violation of the National Voter Registration Act,” said Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. “For nearly three decades, the National Voter Registration Act has helped to move states in the right direction by eliminating unnecessary requirements that have historically made it harder for eligible voters to access the registration rolls.

Yeah, their suit is not about the Second Amendment. Did you think that this Department of Justice would actually do something to benefit those who are dealing with an infringed Second Amendment?

They continued:

“The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Arizona is dedicated to protecting voters in the state,” said U.S. Attorney Gary M. Restaino for the District of Arizona. “We are proud to join the Civil Rights Division in bringing this lawsuit to ensure that all eligible citizens in Arizona have the opportunity to register to vote and exercise their fundamental right to participate in our elections.”

The United States’ complaint contends that House Bill 2492 violates the NVRA by requiring that applicants produce documentary proof of citizenship before they can vote in presidential elections or vote by mail in any federal election when they register to vote using the uniform federal registration form created by the NVRA.

I think having access to vote is a very important thing, and yes, fundamental to our representative republic. I don’t think it’s too much of an “ask” to have citizens be the only ones voting.

The thing here is that the Department of Justice acts like they’re some sort of a social justice warrior. The big over caffeinated Karen to hurl mochachinos at Mr. Joe Blow America. Joe Blow naturally somehow offended them for merely existing. Garland bellowing “I want to see the manager!”

Since we’re on the topic of civil rights being infringed upon, I don’t see Garland, who did not cut the mustard to be a Supreme Court Justice, filing suits against states for their overly restrictive firearms laws, do we? No we’re not. Actually there are a number of jurisdictions that have been so cavalier in the last half century+ (NY 100+) by usurping the rights of American citizens to keep and bear arms, but as of late they really have no excuse to continue the infringements. No more excuses! “As of late” is the big stick we’ve all been talking about for the last two weeks, and will be for the next two decades, at least…Bruen.

Garland, the Big Guy’s flunkey, is not going after states like Massachusetts, New York, Hawaii, New Jersey, etc. for their laws that fly in the face of the decision. They’re not telling New York they best be on their best behavior. No, Garland’s not making sure the Second Amendment is being respected anywhere in the country. One could say he’s complicit in treating the Second Amendment as a second class right, which we’ve known is a no no for over a decade, with Thomas reiterating that fact on his last birthday. #nationalholiday #justicethomasday

Why is the Biden-Harris administration going after the voting ID laws in Arizona? We’ll leave that for the folks at Townhall to discuss. I could take a stab at it though. Regardless, I may have called the shot like the Great Bambino the other day when I called out the Attorney General for valuing some rights over others, but ya really don’t have to be a master in prognostication to deduce this reality. These swamp critters really are some champions of civil liberties. #doingsomething
