Voter Fraud is committed by Conservatives (Updated)

The over-arching issue is that conservatives believe Voting itself to be Fraud. Conservatives do not ascribe to universal franchise. Only those who can be trusted to vote the proper way should be eligible to vote. I've added two high-profile Right-Wingers after the rest of the original post.
Let's say your outraged because you believe there are too many bicycle thefts going on in your community.

Now, it doesn't matter if you are correct about the scope of the bike thefts if your perception is there are too many then your perception is reality.

Unfortunately, besides a few ardent friends of yours, no one else is taking your concerns seriously. So you embark on a scheme to steal a bunch of bicycles to get the Authorities to pay attention.

And therein lies the problem. Because in committing the thefts you are the problem. When you are charged with Thefts you can't rationally claim to have been breaking the law in order to save it.

James O'Keefe and his Bungling Buddies of Project Veritas have concocted another sting Operation. It's the same tactic used in New Hampshire Primaries.

The new sting led the Drudge Report and Breitbart (may he rest in feces) and it's sweeping the conservative blogs, which incestuously repost whatever the big conservative mouthpieces exude. For instance here and here. But, like everything O'Keefe touches it's perverted. A white O'Keefe colleague went into the D.C. voting place and asked "Do you have an Eric Holder?" When asked to sign for the ballot, the Fraudster demurs and retreats saying, "I'll be back Faster than you can say Furious!"

So, besides only showing another dishonest Right-Winger about to commit a Felony what does this piece of performance art prove? As one Justice Department official said, “It’s no coincidence that these so-called examples of rampant voter fraud consistently turn out to be manufactured ones."

But, for conservatives the Play's the Thing! When they don't have the facts they, quite literally in this case, make them up.
Update continued:
John Derbyshire recently came to people's attention for his racist screed in National Review Online. But, in 2009 Derby repeatedly asserted that women shouldn't vote. As he specifically told Thom Hartmann, "women voting is bad for conservatism, and as a conservative, of course, I think that’s bad for society.”

Rick Warren, mega-church, mega-rich, mega-slob, Dominionist Pastor tweeted, in 2011, “HALF of America pays NO taxes. Zero. So they’re happy for tax rates to be raised on the other half that DOES pay taxes." This bearing of false witness is still repeated by conservative blogs and Faux News.

But, what this all gets around, is that Conservatives don't believe everyone should have the right to vote because Right-Wingers don't believe in Democracy, they believe in Oligarchy and Oppression.

One can either assume that whatever "voter fraud" there would be evenly distributed, or that only "one side" engages in it.

It seems as if today's GOP's belief is that all perpetrators of voter fraud would vote for dems.

The hate is eating them up.
