The very same Philadelphia Daily News that compiles all of the news from the crime scenes and underperforming public schools in Philadelphia - which are ACTUALLY injuring Black people is the very same newspaper that provided an elaborate set of instructions on how to VOTE with the new photo voter ID rules in place in Pennsylvania.
While the sidebar to the left appears in the front "news" section of the same edition that reported on the painful truth on the streets of the city - this paper can't bring itself to bring this truth to its EDITORIAL PAGES.
I ask anyone that agrees to yield their views to intellectual honesty to READ the listed procedure for acquiring photo ID and then tell me if the NAACP and other "Embedded Confidence Men" groups have a legitimate case as they PRIORITIZE the "Threat" from "Voter Suppression" over their willingness to EFFECTIVELY address the conditions within the city that were supposed to be fixed as the machine that is now assembled and in place rose to power.
We know the character of such Progressive-Fundamentalist groups. They have nothing to lose as long as the Black Community goes along with the scheme rather than exacting punishment against those who convinced our people to yield their valuables into the offering plate and now, after many decades of prayer for enlightenment about the path that we are taking - they have again shifted the community's focus on a "windmill" to chase, as they now promise that this is a "Green initiative" that will generate electricity without the use of carbon fuel.
I do not know anything more about Michael Hinkelman and his ideological bias, beyond the list of articles that he has in his archive. What is clear, however, is that Mr Hinkelman is choosing to run a "straight news" version of this photo voter ID rouse instead of bundling the entire subject up and relating it to the macro-situation that is being seen on the streets of Philadelphia.
From the Daily News article
Earlier this month, the Demoartment of State said that mroe than 750,000 registered voters in the state do not have a PennDOT photo ID, including almost 187,000 in Philadelphia.ANALYSIS
Despite the recent voter outreach efforts, a PennDOT spokeswoman said that only 1,321 free photo IDs for voting purposes had been issued as of July 18. While PennDOT does not track how man photo IDs it issues every day in Philadelphia, the department averaged 37,000 per month in 2011 for all five driver's license sites in the city, spokewoman Jan McKinght said.
Despite the fact that the news of this requirement has flooded the airwaves and there is ample consideration for those who do not have birth certificates - the 187K number will be used by the forces who seek to make this a case of "Voter Suppression" will use this base of people as their hard estimate of voter disenfranchisement.
With their present leverage of claiming to represent the interests of "the injured" - they merely need to incessantly play back the words of the Republican state legislator who said that the photo mandates will improve the chances for the Republicans.
MY ARGUMENT, as I do my latest series of "The Philadelphia Negro - TODAY" is to put forth the obvious counterpoint - "WHATEVER SCHEME That Has Been Appointed Under The Auspicies Of DEVELOPING THE BLACK COMMUNITY IN PHILADELPHIA AND PITTSBURGH And Points In Between HAS MASSIVELY FAILED!!! The Greater Assault To Black People Than The Fraction Of The 187,000 Without IDs That Are Black - Is The Far, Far, Far Larger Number Of Black People That Have To LIVE IN The Conditions Where The Forces Of "MISSION ACCOMPLISHMENT" Now Control Without Any Serious Contestation From Their Vowed Enemies That Have Moved Away And Left Them To Find Their Own Way - All Alone.
