A Republican Radio Host Actually Admitted It – He Wants To Bring Back Jim Crow Voting Laws (AUDIO)
“Give us the ballot and we will no longer have to worry the federal government about our basic rights …”
–Martin Luther King Jr., May, 1957
Voting – you’d think that anti-government Republicans would encourage participation. After all, it’s only with everyone’s voice that we get a government that represents us.
But that’s not what Republicans want. They don’t want participation. They don’t want black people voting or poor people voting or women voting. They have one interest in mind, and that’s to preserve the plutocracy, the white plutocracy. Few Republicans will dare state it that bluntly, but Iowa radio host Jan Mickelson, who calls himself the better of GOP presidential candidates, is that blunt.
On June 4th, Mickelson hosted two representatives of the League of Women voters, an organization whose goal is to register people to vote. Mickelson disagrees with that goal. He says he’s “in the voter repression business” and that he wants “people not to vote unless they agree with (him).”
