Senator Charles E. Grassley of Iowa, the ranking Republican on the Judiciary Committee, said the court’s decision on Tuesday reflected the positive impact of the civil rights legislation and that the legislation was no longer needed.
“What it tells me is after 45 years, the Voting Rights Act worked,” Mr. Grassley said, “and that’s the best I can say. It just proves that it worked.”
Fuck you, you asshole; your atavistic bullshit can’t die off soon enough.
There’s no way these people can be this stupid. They know exactly how much the press will report, and that they won’t get called on this mendacious bullshit. Fuck ’em. It would take about half a second to point out that, you know, racism is in fact alive and well.
Not to mention…well, Chuck, if we don’t need the law anymore, then why ar eyou working so hard to get rid of it? It’s not like we’d decriminalize murder if the murder rate dropped to zero, right? That shit would still be wrong, and it would still be a crime.
