In his latest blockbuster piece, ACRU Policy Board Member Ken Blackwell likens the suppression of voice and vote during the Nazi regime to the falsely named For the People's Act, proposed by liberals and awaiting Senate action. It is important that every American understand its dangerous implications and the ease in which it would usher in political corruption and totalitarian one-party rule.
With its underlying assumption that all white people are racists, Critical Race Theory is itself racist and ignores the real problems in African American communities that threaten the safety and prosperity of their residents.
Nursing homes and assisted living centers where seniors might need to rely on others for voting assistance are where senior votes are at high risk for fraud, according to ACRU Action Board Member and former Cincinnati Mayor Ken Blackwell. Not only have they been targeted by fraudsters in the past, but politically motivated liberals are now trying to remove even more vote security protections.
"The left and their chosen candidates have provided telling examples of their unwillingness to make ethical choices that protect citizens. Proving themselves willing to violate numerous critical social norms, they are unlikely to be concerned with violating just one more," states Blackwell.
"Cancel culture” is a double entendre of the dangerous kind. It is not just about canceling individuals or entities who offend leftist activists and their myopic group of minions; it is about fundamentally canceling America.
ACRU Action Board Member Ken Blackwell fearlessly takes on “all the fraud we cannot see” (and the fraud we can) in senior residences. Vote suppression and manipulation in these facilities is real, and a reason why ACRU created Protect Elderly Votes. Warning of union activism, and asking residence executives for help, Ken notes that the votes of our Greatest Generation are a target for fraudsters and we must protect them.
Despite prosecutions and public stories identifying vote fraud activists targeting seniors, many in our media and political class continue to deny that our elderly population can be singled out for vote manipulation and suppression.
During COVID-19, governors, mayors and many local officials forgot about the 10th Amendment, the notion that those who govern closest govern best, and their own responsibility to those who elected them. ACRU Policy Board Member Ken Blackwell points out in this important editorial that it is indeed the purview of local leaders to take action, restore peace in their communities, and stop yelling for the feds to bail them out.
This pandemic may seem as though it's changed everything, but it has not changed the rules of our constitutional republic. Let's keep it that way.
America holds its “Greatest Generation” in a unique place of honor. We treasure the enormous contributions the men and women who are now our senior citizens have made to our freedom and prosperity, at home and abroad. Yet the sacred right of today’s seniors, both in the Greatest Generation and subsequent ones, to have their political choices honored at the ballot box, are at high risk because of vote fraud.
