Deputy County Clerk John Brown makes the case—such as it is, that the Rock Island County Board must maintain its bloated 25 seats:
“The Hispanic population has boomed . . . If (districts) were reduced, our black population and Hispanic population would be thrown into significantly larger districts. Their populations’ (representations) would be diminished.”
Democrats always talk a good game of diversity, but when push comes to shove and political power is at stake, they will gladly balkinize and divide the people to achieve their goals.
But why are Hispanics and blacks the only minorities worthy of consideration? As a woman, I demand a district created specially for those of us who are Y chromosome impaired, represented by a woman or my populations’ representation will be diminished!
Personally, I don’t buy this Democrat identity politics twaddle—that only a black can represent blacks, that only a Hispanic can represent Hispanics, etc. Although I have to admit this could explain why minority member Obama is such an incompetent POTUS for our majority white country.
I give the last word to one of only four GOPers on the County Board, who I agree with completely:
“I see the trend as being less, not more . . . I don’t see any distinguishable difference in what my area is to another. I represent everybody in the county. That’s the way I look at it.”
Which neatly exposes Democrats as the segregationist racists they are.
