Will there be massive riots and protests if the Supreme Ct rules against the voting rights act?

And affirmative action?

After watching Chris Hayes covering the origin of how this got to the court and the shadowy funding as a minority myself who is older I will take to the streets if they rule against people of color.

Right now in this country we are a tinder box. Women losing their reproductive rights,people being pissed about NSA surveillance, lousy paying jobs, congress voting to cut Snap. I see major cities going ballistic liken Brazil.

We are tired of our congress not addressing our needs, no job legislation but willing to spend 30 billion on a fence instead of rebuilding our infrastructure. I can the the wildfire of people so angry they explode.

1. If you can't get people angry about having every aspect of our lives in a government data base...

 

Will they ever be mad enough over anything?

2. We can all go and tell Ralph Nader, thanks Ralph Nader for your court picks. Now, if one doesn't

 

like the court- the solution is simple

DON'T PROTEST at just the exact wrong time to protest, like 1952,1956, 1968,1972,1980,1984,1988,2000,2004

the only way to change the court is to elect the democratic party til one of the 5 retires and the court shifts back

Which will happen most likely during Hillary Clinton's first term.

The BushPaulfamilyinc. would love for people to riot, as would the NRA.
They would sweep into office in 2014 with that.

One has to be like Jackie Robinson, and move forward without stooping to their level.
Then the court will shift

and remember to thank Ralph Nader.
Alito and Roberts were his choices, because he said both sides are the same.

6. Revoking the voting rights act will

Likely guarantee a Republican.

12. I disagree.It will heavily backfire, and it would send it back to congress...meaning VOTING in 2014

 

and the electoral college would not change with this, and in fact, would most likely cost the republicans tens of millions of votes
in the states this would apply.


Then the court will shift back.

But the republican party wants a race riot, which is why all the racist stuff has happened.

They can't win any other way.

If they ruled against it, it would be sent back to congress.

Doesn't common sense say more than ever, straight democratic voting everywhere to insure a democratic congress?

Unless one is against minorities, why would anyone want to vote a republican into office at that time?

and wouldn't the correct protest at that time be at the states with republican leaders...

especially the ones who will be fearful of their reelection in 2014.

I would bet the house won't go through with it, and it would leave 2016 to stand as it is now without change as it would be pending a change, which wouldn't come

Why is the instinct to want to destroy everything with a riot???
Anarchy at this time is the exact wrong thing (and it showed in 1968 what a riot did...it elected Nixon and the court shifted because of that badly.)

3. I hope so, but Americans probably can't

Be bothered by the initiation of white rule. It interferes with TV.

4. No.

 

Branding is new, they still have a way to go before THX 1138. People can protest and protest, but the M$M finds a way to down play anything their corporate masters don't like. It is the power over the masses. Their power. And it is everywhere, in all countries. Some state run. Some dollar driven.

Congress listens to $$$.

5. Actually, I think there will be mostly a collective yawn.

Especially in the news media, since few of the people actually affected by repealing the Voting Rights Act are on TV news.

It'll end up going back to state legislatures.

8. Diminishing the Voting Rights ACT

Would burn what ever is left of the bridge between the Republican Party and minorities as a whole. The NSA ambivalence has a lot do with ignorance of the program. Most people are just turning their head because they do not understand it.

On the other hand, people understand VERY CLEARLY what Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr, John F. Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson fought for. Overturning Section 5, would permanently kill the GOP's chances of competing nationally. Period.

11. I think citizens united was more complex, voting rights is was people learned in school

Very elementary and citizens united is harder to understand. People are mad and disgusted all over the country. And don't forget the people standing in lines over 8 hours big difference.
