Letter to the Editor: Lies and Distortions

Editor:

This is my response to Mr. Norton’s letter

2000 mules is a fraud. Dinesh D’Souza is a fraud. This movie is a fraud. True the Vote is a fraud. 

FACT: Making a movie with videos of people doing something and showing dots on a radar screen you say represent “mules” is not evidence. Were that to be the case, all of the 60-something cases put before the courts would not have been thrown out, including by judges appointed from both George W. Bush and Donald Trump.

You have no idea whether said persons were turning in ballots from legitimate voters or not, or how said voters even voted. Those videos you see in the preview of the movie might be (and probably are) nothing illegal. Videos can easily been framed to portray something sinister. That lady you see dropping off a bunch of ballots at 1 a.m. might have done so from the ballots collected at a local church, all of whom are registered voters that got checked out — and some were double or triple checked out.

The ballots themselves represent real voters and the ballots of those real voters are on a registration list. 

Let me repeat that again just in case you missed it. The ballots themselves represent real voters and the ballots of those real voters are on a registration list. 

So again this movie is a fraud. Dinesh D’Souza is a fraud. True the Vote is a fraud. Unable to win a single court case, these monsters decide to make a film to manipulate the weak minded. 

We do however know of Republicans who “harvested” votes and ballots in Florida and Texas that got prosecuted. Also of Republicans who voted more than once in Florida, Georgia and North Carolina. And we even have Republicans paying someone to pretend to run for an legislative office in Florida with a similar hispanic name in order to split the hispanic vote against the real candidate.

It would be foolish to think there is any substance to this monstrosity.

Furthermore, this is the ilk inspired by Quentin Kopp. I didn’t realize fallacious purposeful subtle dog-whistiling ever deserved a voice at the community table.

Since y’all like quotes so much, here’s one from Lyndon B Johnson: “If you can convince a poor white man that he is better than a [black man], you can pick his pocket all day long.”  (I inserted brackets because the actual word Johnson used might offend some folks.)

Have a nice day.
