(PatriotWise.com)- On Monday, the Department of Justice filed a lawsuit against the state of Texas over its new redistricting map claiming the plans discriminate against black and Hispanic voters. Because apparently, the Justice Department believes blacks and Hispanics should not be living in districts that also contain white people.
The lawsuit, filed in the Western District of Texas, alleges that Texas’ redistricting map violates part of the Voting Rights Act.
On its face, the lawsuit is laughable. But this is what you get when you appoint radical Leftists who can’t see beyond the color of someone’s skin.
In a press conference announcing the ridiculous lawsuit, Leftist Associate Attorney General Vanita Gupta claimed that for decades, Texas state Republicans have drawn district maps that don’t give black, Latino, and Asian “communities” the opportunity “to choose their own representatives.”
In other words, Vanita believes black, Latino, or Asian voters should only be allowed to vote for someone who looks like them. Gupta claims Texas draws these maps to “minimize the voting rights” of minorities in the state.
Do the redistricting plans prevent minorities from voting? Of course not. Vanita Gupta just can’t imagine a world in which people vote for a candidate rather than a skin color.
One of the districts they’re upset about, Texas #23, is 62 percent Hispanic and both the Democrat and Republican Congressional candidates are … wait for it … Hispanic. But somehow forcing Hispanics to choose between two Hispanic candidates “dilutes” their voting power.
It’s utter nonsense.
The reality is, Texas Hispanics are abandoning the Democrat Party in droves. Vanita Gupta and the rest of the racialists in the Biden administration are using the lawsuit as a way to bolster the Democrats’ chances in Texas. It isn’t about “voting rights” or “diluting the strength of minority voters.” It’s about getting Democrats elected to Congress and maintaining power.
In short, this lawsuit is a political move, not a legal one.
Meanwhile, blue states like Illinois and New York are creating a crazy quilt of districts to make it impossible for Republicans to win. In Nevada, Democrats specifically diluted the Hispanic vote by dividing the communities into separate districts.
But you won’t hear a peep from the Biden Department of Justice over any of that.
