As the 2016 election season is heating up, so is leftist opposition to state voter ID laws. Such laws are currently facing pushback in Missouri, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Texas and North Dakota.
The most common argument is that voter ID laws would disenfranchise certain groups of people, including racial minorities, the poor and younger voters.
But Daniel Horowitz, a senior editor at Conservative Review, believes this is an example of the left’s tendency to twist the concept of rights in order to grant special privileges to protected classes of individuals at the expense of the rest of the population.
“They’re basically saying that there is a mandate, a right for an individual to vote fraudulently and thereby strip rights away from everyone else,” Horowitz told WND in an interview.
