International election observers discover that America's elections ARE being "rigged." Just not in the way Donald Trump claims they are being rigged.

Courtesy of WhoWhatWhy:

The hundreds of international observers dispatched to keep an eye on the US election are already troubled by what they have seen. 

According to an interim report, the election monitors sent by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) have expressed deep concerns over the disenfranchisement of millions of US citizens. 

“Up to six million Americans will be excluded from the election,” said Michael Georg Link, the OSCE’s chief election observer, in an interview with the German Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. 

Link explained that an estimated 3.2 million Americans are being disenfranchised because they are either in custody and awaiting trial or have already been sentenced. An additional 2.6 million citizens have already served their time behind bars but were still stripped of their right to cast a ballot on November 8.

Hmm, I wonder which ethnic demographic this most negatively impacts and who that demographic would be most likely to vote for in this election?

But wait, there's more: 

The OSCE is also disturbed that so many Americans fear that the election would be rigged. Link explained that the international observers had so far seen no evidence that this is happening. Instead, he suggested that the accusations Democrats and Republicans had exchanged are rooted in the viciousness of this election cycle.

So to be clear this group of trained election observers, from around the world, are finding NO evidence of any election rigging, but they are finding evidence that certain groups are purposefully disenfranchised due to brushes with the law, which of course impacts minorities in far larger numbers than it does white people in this country.

I think that the only issue I would take with his article is the contention that BOTH Republicans and Democrats are adding to the fear of election rigging which might scare voters away from the polls this election cycle.

It seems pretty obvious that only ONE major party candidate is making those accusations, and it is also pretty clear as to why he is doing so.

    This election is extremely depressing, discouraging and venomous emanating from the Trump campaign that people, groups and everything is a "disaster" insinuating most of the country should fear for their life . Damn, if it is not the valid threat of terrorists it is a beauty queen labled a pig eating machine leveled to being a housekeeper while exhausting screaming, profanity shouting violent threats urging Trump supporters to take the law into their hands to even murder Clinton. He same people wearing Make America Great Again caps calling for death, deportation, incarceration from crowds
    who wear Fuck the Bitch shirts.

    It is horrifying Trump is so like the dictator Hitler. I could weep about the Trump destruction of the foundation of our country.

      I'd seen the "Trump the bitch" t-shirts, but not the "Fuck the bitch" ones. Are you serious?

    And, it begs the question of why are they here in the U.S. What triggered their visit? Trump's rhetoric? We are not a third world country needing observation/validation of our democratic process. If there is a positive to this, it will be to shut that orange pie-hole of Trump.

      " The election fraudster’s Facebook page features numerous blatantly racist posts as well as a slew of grammatically challenged pro-Trump rants.

      “You black lives doesn’t matter (sic),” she wrote in a post sharing a newscast from the riots in Charlotte, North Carolina, after the fatal police shooting of a black man there in September.
      Polk County alone reported three cases of suspected voter fraud as of Saturday.

      “Run their assess over (sic),” she captioned another post sharing a video of more Charlotte protesters. "

    Just read that the trump tweets connect him to mafia. Is this the unrelated lawsuit? Is this what the FBI is checking into?

    There is footage of Trump with 2004 Miss Universe Jennifer Hawkins in Australia. At the end he actually gropes her behind in front of a large audience.

    I don't think that states should be allowed to make election laws that prevent felons, who have served their sentences, from voting. Since one of those states is Florida, I wonder if the there is an exception there to allow the current governor, convicted of felony fraud involving Medicare money and fined by the federal government is now allowed to vote while other Florida felons, who have served their prison terms and have been released, are not allowed to vote.

    Nothing about polling places near colleges and in heavily Democratic areas being eliminated so that lines are a lot longer?

    I guess that will come out on Election Day.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
