Comedian Jeff Foxworthy has become famous with “You might be a redneck” humor.
We can add to his repertoire with this one: “If you’re a felon, you might be a Democrat.” Of course, for me, if Democrat politicians were taken to court and questioned on whether they upheld their oath to abide by the Constitution as written, they would be found guilty and sent to jail — and a lot of Republicans as well.
Felons need to stick together.
A new study of how criminals vote found that most of them register as Democrats, a key reason “why liberal lawmakers and governors are eager for them to get back into the voting booth after their release.”
The same is true of Muslims. According to a Pew research study, “only 11 percent of Muslims are Republican or ‘lean Republican.'” It shouldn’t surprise us, therefore, that Democrats want millions of Muslims to immigrate.
Crime matters to Democrats, but not in the way most of us think. When felons get out of prison, the majority of them join up with the Democrats. Prison is like liberalism. Vote for a Democrat and get free housing, free food, free education, free healthcare, free clothes, and gun control for law-abiding Americans. It’s no wonder that felons feel comfortable in the Democrat Party.
“’Democrats would benefit from additional ex-felon participation,’ said the authoritative study in The Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science.
“The authors, professors from the University of Pennsylvania and Stanford University, found that in some states, felons register Democratic by more than six-to-one. In New York, for example, 61.5 percent of convicts are Democrats, just 9 percent Republican.
“They also cited a study that found 73 percent of convicts who turn out for presidential elections would vote Democrat.” (H/T: Washington Examiner)
