For People Who See Nuance, They Sure See Some Black and White When Convenient

Evil Republicans hate veterans!

Paul Carroll, an 86-year-old World War II veteran who has lived in the same Ohio town for four decades, was denied a chance to vote in the state’s primary contests today after a poll worker denied his form of identification, a recently-acquired photo ID from the Department of Veterans Affairs. The poll worker rejected the ID because it did not contain an address, as required by Ohio law.

You see? The Republicans (the ones who favor voter ID laws) hate the military!

Except this fellow tried to vote with a photo ID that was not approved by the voter ID law. Like most student IDs.

This incident mirrors one almost exactly like it in Wisconsin. Almost like it’s a coordinated assault on voter ID laws.

Why do the ACLU and Think Progress hate election integrity?

See what I did there?

Whenever Republicans and the like oppose something, say mandatory contraception coverage in insurance plans because it eliminates the freedom of the individuals (or their proxies) to select insurance benefits they want or need, suddenly the nuance gets sucked right out of the stance so that it can be falsely painted in a tweet OMG PL RT REPUBLICANS HATE WOMEN!
