Stewart Talks Voting Rights Act, Supreme Court

There are 1 comment on the NBC Miami story from Mar 6, 2013, titled Stewart Talks Voting Rights Act, Supreme Court. In it, NBC Miami reports that:

"It's a completely different America!" said Stewart. "We got cell phones now, and things cost more than a nickel." Jon Stewart's guest on Tuesday's "Daily Show" was Sandra Day O'Connor, so it makes sense that prior to talking to the retired Supreme Court justice Stewart did a segment on a big case now in front of the High Court.

Instead of the voting rights act, I think we need more educated voters to begin with! Many vote, and don't even know what the candidate really stands for.

" Excerpts:

At first everyone thought it was a joke. But it wasn't. In the March 18 Illinois primary, two zombified followers of right-wing extremist Lyndon LaRouche actually won the Democratic nominations for secretary of state and lieutenant governor. Janice Hart and Mark Fairchild won on the platform articulated in their cult's New Solidarity newspaper: eliminate Gramm-Rudman, fund Star Wars, test everyone for AIDS (and quarantine victims), and form a "Nuremberg Tribunal" to investigate drug dealing by Zionists and journalists, represented by Henry Kissinger and Katherine Graham, whom the LaRouchies want to hang for treason. Although Hart and Fairchild articulated their sick program to anyone who would listen, most of those who voted for them had no idea what they stood for.


On March 18, 1986, the State of Illinois held its primary elections in preparation for the November state-wide general election. Stunning the state and national Democratic parties, two followers of Lyndon LaRouche won nomination for the state's second and third highest offices. LaRouche candidate Mark J. Fairchild defeated party regular George E. Sangmeister (a state senator, later a U.S. congressman, from Mokena) for lieutenant governor and LaRouche candidate Janice Hart defeated party regular Aurelia Pucinski, a Chicago Metropolitan Sanitary District Board member and daughter of a powerful Chicago city alderman and Democratic committeeman, for Secretary of State. The results were nothing less than a stunning upset, creating chaos within the state Democratic party.

The LaRouchites espouse a bizarre philosophy that includes racism, passionate support for nuclear power, and accusations against public figures: Walter Mondale and FBI director William H. Webster are described as "Soviet agents of influence," the Queen of England as "a kingpin of the global drug traffic."

The central fact is that for most Illinois voters -- and for Democrats in particular -- the primary election was a total bore and waste of time. They didn't pay attention because they didn't think it made any difference -- and everything in recent experience suggests they were absolutely right. "
