So What’s a Latino and Black American’s Vote Worth?
Nothing if SCOTUS doesn’t act.
Somewhat under the radar, but winding its’ way up to the United States Supreme Court and the nine justices who are currently seated in that body, is a case that should be of major interest for every single American. Especially for Americans of color.
“Kellye Sorelle, on behalf of the United States of America versus the State of Texas, the State of California, the State of Florida, the Commonwealth of Virginia, the Commonwealth of Kentucky, the State of Arizona, and the State of Michigan, and all other states and commonwealths or territories of the United States of America, the Defendants.” See the case file pdf here.
While that certainly is a mouthful, what the case is all about is much more than that. It’s about the very future of our republic as a free and sovereign nation governed by the will of the people. And whether black and brown Americans will have a voice in governing our country, or will they just get kicked aside on the whims of unelected bureaucrats?
While there have been arguments made about fraud occurring during the 2020 elections, this case has nothing to do with⏤if or how much voter fraud may have occurred. Truth be told, there’s an element of fraud that occurs in practically every single election we’ve ever held, all the way back to our nation’s earliest days.
It’s just a fact that some people simply cannot allow for an opposing point of view to hold sway over the electorate, and ultimately govern the country. So by hook or by crook, they’ll violate state and federal election laws in order to try to obtain the preferred electoral outcome. Whether there has ever been enough voter fraud to actually overturn the will of the people is a question for historians to answer. Certainly, the 1960 election could be considered a case in point. John F. Kennedy won a squeaker against Richard Nixon that may well have been determined by fraudulent votes in the city of Chicago.
But no, this case isn’t about voter fraud in 1960, in 2020, or in any election. This case is about civil rights. It’s about the civil rights of brown and black Americans who were indeed disenfranchised during the 2020 election as a result of improper and illegal actions taken by election authorities in states all across America.
How so you might ask?
Well partly because the states took money from the Federal Government, under the Voting Rights Act of 1964 and the Helping America Voting Act (HAVA), to secure safe and fair elections for minorities. Instead what we saw in the months leading up to the 2020 election was the systematic dismantling of election integrity protections by, in many cases unelected bureaucrats and political party hacks. Regulations and policies enacted by state legislatures for the purpose of ensuring a fair election for all were ignored, changed, or simply discarded.
These illegal changes impacted all Americans, including people of color. In effect, the changes were a violation of the Constitutionally guaranteed right to vote in a fair and free election. And in the case of Latino and African Americans a violation of their civil rights.
There are numerous affidavits from witnesses who saw firsthand violations against the Helping America Voting Act (HAVA) and the Civil Rights Act of 1964, yet a blind eye has been turned by those in power who can affect change and rectify the wrongs perpetrated against the civil rights of Latino, African, Asian, and other minority Americans.
What was witnessed were criminal acts being committed by state election officials, in many cases with little or no attempt to hide their activities. It was almost as though they were so confident that there would be no repercussions that they did it with impunity. It would seem that Democrats are only interested in protecting the voting rights of minorities who are loyal to the Democrat Party, and not interested in protecting the civil rights of conservative minorities who oppose the progressive policies being advocated by today’s Democrat politicians.
The 2020 election saw Latino and African Americans vote for President Donald Trump, a Republican, in larger numbers than ever recorded. Traditionally African Americans and Latinos have been solidly behind the Democrat Party, casting ballots that could be regularly counted on by the Democrats. But 2020 was different. President Trump had made inroads into both the Latino and African American communities. A much larger percentage voted for President Trump over his challenger, the former Vice President Joe Biden.
So where does a violation of civil rights come into play?
Countless reports of Election Day shenanigans have been chronicled, including many that were perpetrated against people of color. The unconstitutional and illegal election changes implemented without any authority by state election officials clearly have disenfranchised Latino and African Americans. A clear violation of their civil rights, hence the case being presented to the Supreme Court of the United States.
Now it’s up to SCOTUS to show the courage necessary to void the 2020 election, and then schedule a new election in order to ensure that the civil rights of black and brown, and in fact all Americans are upheld.
According to Bianca Gracia, from Latinos for Trump, “Justice Thomas has had Sorelle’s filing “on his desk for 90 days” and that is a good sign, indicating that interested parties may get a preliminary hearing to talk about what they see as Civil Rights infractions during the election.”
Certainly a weighty decision and not something to be taken lightly. One could say almost unprecedented. But that’s what the Supreme Court’s job is to do, deal with these types of weighty issues. And they take an oath to the American people, including Latino and African Americans, that they will do what’s right.
