Horowitz: Democrats Groom the Mentally Disabled to Vote
Newsmax ^ | Friday, 23 Nov 2012 09:52 AM | David Horowitz

Posted on 11/23/2012 10:12:14 PM PST by Olog-hai

I am incredibly steamed this Thanksgiving Holiday over what the Democrats are doing to my country. Everybody by now knows—or should know—how readily Democrats conduct election fraud, and how determined they are to defend it. James O’Keefe and others have taken videos of paid Democratic operatives encouraging citizens to vote twice. O’Keefe was even able to claim Attorney General Eric Holder’s own ballot at a district polling place by claiming to be him, and then to vote in his place. …

But even knowing this, I was not prepared for a conversation I had at Thanksgiving dinner with my brother-in-law, Henry, who has lived most of his life in a home for the mentally disabled and although now in his 40s, has the intelligence level of a 6-year-old. “Obama saved me,” he said to me out of the blue. “What do you mean?” “I voted for him for president and now he’s saving me.” …

So I asked him how he knew that and how he had registered and cast his vote. In halting, impeded speech he told me that the people who take care of him at the home filled out “the papers” to register him to vote, told him how Obama cared for him, even taught him the Obama chants, and then took him to the polling place to vote. They did the same for all of the mentally disabled patients in their care, approximately 60 in all. …

This is believable. It isn’t “voter fraud” in the strict sense, because there is no provision to prevent the mentally disabled from voting, or from convincing a mentally disabled person that one candidate is better than the other.

It should disgust us all, but sadly the democrats aren’t disgusted by it, and democracy doesn’t work well if people don’t have a sense of basic decency and morality. It is certainly immoral to steal the votes of the disabled, but sadly not “fraud”, (although I’d like to think that if you actually filled out absentee ballots for them, that would be fraud — don’t know how the “assistance rules” work, but I’m sure they are written to help democrats get more of the infirmed to vote the way they want).

The democrats are doing today to the U.S. exactly what Hitler (wrongly) claimed the jews were doing to Germany back in the 1930’s. And the PC third rail nature of the above statement is precisely why they get away with it.

Nursing homes have been allowing buses to come in load up the patients and take them to vote democrat for years. I have personal knowledge of it happening 35 years ago. My sister managed that nursing home and it was mostly for mentally handicapped patients.

My word. This is not only heartbreaking to read but cruel for all involved who had their rights and dignity completely abused. The dems in power who are paying others dems to do this should be brought to court. Bless those patients. Very sorry for what David’s brother in law, Henry has went through and for David’s family.

democracy doesn’t work well if people don’t have a sense of basic decency and morality.

"Statesmen, my dear Sir, may plan and speculate for liberty, but it is religion and morality alone, which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free Constitution is pure virtue, and if this cannot be inspired into our People in a greater Measure than they have it now, they may change their rulers and the forms of government, but they will not obtain a lasting liberty." John Adams

"It is certainly true that a popular government cannot flourish without virtue in the people." Richard Henry Lee

"Whenever we are planning for posterity, we ought to remember that virtue is not hereditary." Thomas Paine

"The diminution of public virtue is usually attended with that of public happiness, and the public liberty will not long survive the total extinction of morals." Samuel Adams

"No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and Virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders." Samuel Adams

"... but a republic once equally poised, must either preserve its virtue or lose its liberty, and by some tumultuous revolution, either return to its first principles, or assume a more unhappy form." John Witherspoon

"A general dissolution of the principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy.... While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but once they lose their virtue, they will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.... If virtue and knowledge are diffused among the people, they will never be enslaved. This will be their great security." Samuel Adams

"Without virtue there can be no liberty." Benjamin Rush

This is not a new practice. Democrats in NYS have been doing this for years. Mentally ill CRIMINALS were solicited to vote in the 2000 election by their social workers in the forensic mental health system.

Another good reason why I keep beating the drum for a con-con to meet for the express purpose of drumming New England and downstate New York out of the Union.

And mass-transporting their fellow-traveling friends in California, D.C., and the Northwest, so they can join the instigators in weatherwax country.

My only question is this: Republicans are largely footing the bill for the welfare state, so why isn’t the GOP busing the mentally ill, Somalians, elderly, Blacks and Hispanics to the polling places and handing out mocked up republican ballots? How does the national GOP let the Dems only get away with this? WHERE ARE OUR BUSES??????

How do we differentiate between the mentally disabled rat voter and the mentally disabled? There one in the same. The real issue here is VOTER FRAUD in a presidential election. Anyone in the GOP hearing me? To busy standing in line to kiss the ring and work across the isle, something they have accepted and are good at.

They do it in Florida, too. When I was a poll-watcher in 2004, I witnessed the entire population of the state’s nearby home for the mentally handicapped be brought in, busload after busload, to be “voted” by their SEIU attendants and busdrivers. Many of them were so disabled that they needed “assistance” in the voting booth, and the aides and drivers simply went in with them, one after another.

This year, the abuse was so notorious that Florida finally made it illegal for one person to “assist” more than one other person to vote, but I’m sure the Dems found a work-around. Can’t let all those good Dem, mentally-incompetent nursing home and mental institution votes go to waste, can we?

[The] cynical exploitation of my brother-in-law and the other patients in the home, many whose mental capacities are even more limited than Henry's [is what Rats, et al. do]. Another example,

Danish psychologist Nicolai Sennels:

. . . close to ninety percent [of the suicide bombers were] suffering from severe illness such as blindness, cancer, missing limbs or leprosy. Many Muslim societies . . . have a low social acceptance of handicaps and severe illnesses . . . being physically handicapped or mentally retarded often leads to exclusion . . . and becoming a martyr might be the only chance of achieving social recognition and honour — if not just a way to end the pain of being socially isolated (which is especially traumatizing in collectivist cultures like Islam). Al Qaida’s use of people with Down’s syndrome might be another unpleasant side effect of the many chromosomal illnesses resulting from inbreeding between first cousins. People with low intelligence (because of inbreeding) might also be easier to brainwash with fundamentalist Islam.

And yet what is the solution to this outrageous abuse? Any Republican legislator proposing some kind of ban on manipulating special people in this way would be shouted down. The Dems and the media would scream about Republicans hating anyone with a disability, trying to suppress more voters’ rights, etc. Surely the Dems know this so of course they are free to continue these practices. Damned sad state of affairs.

In our locality, the worst kept secret is that some Democrats were going into nursing homes and filling out absentee ballots for patients with dementia, who had no idea what they were signing.

At some point, to their credit, the local election officials stopped accepting absentee ballots delivered in bulk by local politicians. The polling place is located in the building where many of these patients live.

I’m sure they’ve found other ways to get it done.

All of the states allow felons to vote. They must meet certain requirements in some states.

Only Maine and Vermont allow incarcerated felons to vote.
