Isn’t this what is called a self-own?
Every time I argue that uninformed voters should be weeded out with testing, I’m accused of racism. But if you call that racist, what you’re saying is that you think minorities are uninformed. That’s not my view, it’s yours, you bigot. My focus isn’t race, it’s competency.

Well, Matt, who will decide who is competent and informed? Judging by your tweets, I don’t think you are informed so, sorry, no vote for you.
Conservative gadfly Walsh is accused of racism because his suggestion has been used before for racist intent. Literacy and competency tests were used beginning after the Civil War to exclude blacks from voting. Whites judged the answers to ridiculous questions (see some examples here) with the transparent purpose to keep blacks from voting. Walsh deserves all the ridicule he gets.
