A long line weaves around the block at a major polling location in Boston. People have waited for hours in 40 degree weather to vote. But an odd sign greets them as they enter.
Duck taped to a fence is a five-foot tall cardboard ballot, with massive arrows pointing to President Barack Obama’s and Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren’s names. Instructions follow in Chinese, telling the voters to make sure they select these individuals if they want to “keep their benefits and prosper.”
Large versions of the pre-voted ballots are also passed out to voters by eager volunteers walking up and down the long line.
The Chinese Progressive Association is responsible for the propaganda, but that’s not all they distributed. Free gifts with their logo are also handed out. A cane for the elderly, coffee for the young and party pamphlets for all, to name a few.
A volunteer for the organization was on hand and told TheBlaze they are at the polling place in order to get “Chinese people to vote for Obama.” Why? ”Because they support the lower income people and especially the poor” she told us and that “they also support the Chinese people and our Social Security.” When asked if America should be more like the Chinese government, the woman laughed and said “I think, in some situations.”
The Chinese Progressive Association is partially funded by the New World Foundation which has connections to George Soros.
