'Game Of Thrones' Author, Slams Republicans For 'Voter Suppression'

August 14, 2012 - George R.R. Martin, 'Game Of Thrones' Author, Slams Republicans For 'Voter Suppression'

George R.R. Martin, author of "A Game of Thrones", has slammed "Republicans and their Teabagger allies" in so-called swing states for what he calls "voter suppression."

In a recent blogpost on Martin's website, he refers to recent voter purges in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, Iowa, saying that "The people behind these efforts at disenfranchising large groups of voters (the young, the old, the black, the brown) are not Republicans, since clearly they have scant regard for our republic or its values. They are oligarchs and racists clad in the skins of dead elephants."


That is an epic quote, worth repeating:

"The people behind these efforts at disenfranchising large groups of voters (the young, the old, the black, the brown) are not Republicans, since clearly they have scant regard for our republic or its values. They are oligarchs and racists clad in the skins of dead elephants."

Even as we speak, Ohio Republicans and the Republican Ohio Secretary of State John Husted have created two tiers of voters in that state, those who live in Republican counties, and get EXTENDED early voting hours, and those who live in Democratic counties, and get SHORTENED early voting hours. This is just one of MANY examples of GOP voter-suppression tactics currently at work.

America should be setting the example in how to hold a fair democratic election. Instead, it should hang it's head in shame while the .01% rob the country of it's democratic heritage.

GOP voter suppression has become blatant. Mr. Martin has nailed it exactly, "They are oligarchs and racists clad in the skins of dead elephants."
