COULTER SAYS COLLEGE KIDS BRAINWASHED, SHOULD BE DENIED VOTE TILL 30 YEARS OLD
In what surprises no one Ann Coulter said something inflammatory and stupid. What is surprising is just how stupid and inflammatory it is. Again. Ok, maybe it shouldn’t be a surprise at all. But this time Ann’s rant against higher education in the United States went just a bit further than before. She espouses that colleges in the US brainwash our youth, so they shouldn’t be allowed to vote until they’re 30 years old. “It’s just to get the results of 13 years of Chinese-style brainwashing,” Coulter said. “I don’t think that people should be able to vote until they’re 30.”
RANT A REACTION TO FAKE VOTING COMMISSION FAILURE, BUT EFFORT TO PUSH LEFT WING VOTING FRAUD “CONSPIRACY” LIVES ON
This is, of course, a reaction to failure. This time it’s the fact-based pushback on Trump’s bogus voter integrity commission, led by the increasingly slimy Kris Kobach. The Kobach Commission has and continues to push the lie that widespread voter fraud stole the popular vote from Donald Trump last Fall. Ann is feeling pretty angry since the Washington Post debunked Kobach’s claims. She then complained of college students and where they live and vote. But this is business as usual. Republicans are doing all they can to take the vote away from college students at the state level, especially in swing states.
COULTER WANTS TO DENY COLLEGE STUDENTS THE RIGHT TO VOTE IN SWING STATES
Right Wing Watch says, “Coulter first explained to Carr that she didn’t think students should be voting in states where they attend college if they don’t establish permanent residency in that state, but then said that it would be “outrageous” for a college student to change her residency to her college town.”
What most people don’t understand about college students in New England is, that states in the upper northeast are geographically tiny compared to the rest of the states. Take a state like one of several where Ann Coulter allegedly voted illegally, Florida. Driving from Miami to West Palm Beach is the same distance as driving across the entire state of New Hampshire.
COULTER VOTED ILLEGALLY IN FLORIDA, BUT NOTHING HAPPENS IN FLORIDA ELECTIONS, BECAUSE THEY ARE ALL OVER 30
College students in New England (and yes there are plenty of those) routinely cross state lines to do all kinds of things, including work for political campaigns in the New Hampshire Primary. Even Republican campaigns recruit students from Maine, Vermont, and Massachusetts and yes, bus them into the state to do canvassing of voters.
What college students across America don’t do is vote outside of the district of their permanent address, usually their parents’ house. The barriers put between college students and voting would never be tolerated by Ann Coulter (or anyone in Republican circles) if college students were stupid enough to vote Republican.
Hey, Ann, if you can’t vote until you’re thirty years old, maybe college-age kids shouldn’t be allowed to fight in wars? And how come you vote wherever the hell you want to?
