TRUMP SWEPT INTO POWER BY DUSTING OFF THE VOTES OF 1.1 MILLION AFRICAN AMERICANS, LATINOS, AND ASIAN AMERICAN VOTERS- and we’re fighting mad.
Without a shadow of a doubt- Kris Kobach’s Crosscheck would – AND DID – steal the 2016 election. It’s the great untold story. Yes, there was collusion- for instance Michigan’s Secretary of State admitted they purged “aggressively” – about 50,000 voters in a state Trump won by 10,700. Same sad story in Pennsylvania, Illinois and elsewhere.
They’ll use it again in 2018. Talk about Russians all you want, but if we don’t stop the purge of 30,000-60,000 voters in each of 28 states, the 2018 mid-term will be lost – and democracy will become a distant memory. You can’t have a democracy with a government that has no integrity. Palast has put in four years of intensive, hard-core investigative reporting to uncover their game.
Here’s the problem:
Update. Greg Palast filed (along with the ACLU and Rev. Jesse Jackson) Freedom of Information requests in every Crosscheck state to get the names of the voter victims of Crosscheck – the purged… and in the lawsuits that are sure to follow the stone-wall refusal of the GOP Secretaries of State. Rev. Jackson commissioned a special 1hr 13min version which he’s been showing in churches nationwide. The NAACP is sponsoring showings in Georgia; ACLU in Kansas. Oklahoma has already revealed to us their lists. Greg Palast’s activist version of his film The Best Democracy Money Can Buy packs in the hardcore information, so everyone can see exactly how Trump stole it. Beyond the investigative shocks, this film is robustly entertaining, particularly in the cameos by Shailene Woodley, Willie Nelson, Rosario Dawson, and Ice-T). The film ends with an emotional kick that gets folks motivated. You can’t walk away from the film unaware of the continuing danger of racial voter suppression (which is still accelerating). You can’t walk away without feeling ethnic cleansing has come again to America.
