I've been told loudly by conservatives that standing around and holding a potential weapon is NOT intimidation, though.

Standing around holding weapons isn't intimidating, but standing around while black is a bit much for some people apparently.

Especially if wearing a "hoodie."

Don't forget Skittles. The number one candy among thugs.


I've been advocating background checks and a three-day waiting period for Skittles for a long time, along with a total ban on hoodies within 100 yards of a school or church.

I think black people should still be allowed though, unless they're intimidating people by being in public.

d23: Gotta catapult that propaganda!!


I still can't believe that FOX was desperate enuff to put that story in heavy rotation on the day of the election in an obvious last ditch effort to get out the scared-white-racist vote.

Failing that I find it hard to believe that RW trolls are still dumb enuff to trot it out like it proved anything but what I said above.

Late to the thread, but I love how this clear act of political intimidation could backfire hilariously. Because why can't there be poll-watcher watchers? Suddenly these poll watchers, there to make sure that the black people aren't "cheating" have people watching them, making sure that they aren't trying to illegally and unfairly disqualify black voters.

Especially if the poll-watcher watchers start demanding that the people running the polls check the legality of white voters.Could be a wonderful train wreck.

This is the tried and true Limbaugh formula of finding the most extreme outlier, then conclude that "all liberals are..." Well I am sick of Limbaugh Iraqifying us by trying to Sunni vs Shia us. So fu🚽ck you Limbaugh and same to the people who hate our country so much that they can't be good sports in a fair election.

fenianfark: I'm surprised McDaniel didn't try to go old school with suppressing the black vote. Seems like it would be right up his alley.

In case anyone missed it, the picture of the poll tax receipt is dated January 1937 for the right to vote in 1936.

I've only passed through Mississippi on the l-10 part while on Greyhound coming and going between SF and Miami a few times. Only saw lotsa trees and no alligators. I imagine Mississippi would have excellent ghosts with all those small old historic homes.

As I heard the other day, we just had the 50th anniversary of the events that inspired the movie 'Mississippi Burning'.  3 men killed for the crime of trying to register black people to vote.

DrBenway: This threadshiat smells like whiskey. Weird.

Anyway, I figure we're good for at least one more seriously whack-job story out of this run-off election before the polls close tomorrow. And maybe some sort of mass suicide or perhaps a violent rampage at McDaniel's HQ in the event he loses.


Well.........Thad Cochran said he did all sorts of indecent things with animals when he was a kid. I can't make this shiat up.

I don't get it.

Some people are really, really scared of black people. ALL black people.

Somehow I don't think you would be so nonchalant if it was KKK instead of the Black Panthers.

Probably because the KKK has an actual history of murdering people for voting.

Yeah, but on the other hand, we have a picture of a tall black guy standing outside of a door.

It's exactly the same thing as murder.

With the left, especially the White Guilt folks, black groups are allowed to intimidate whites from voting.

Fortunately, hate groups like New Black Panthers aren't gonna show up and intimidate in a non-gun restricted state

Short, stupid, slightly racist but to the point. Good job

7/10

You know what? You're right. I should have said African American panthers. That was awful offensive of me to refer to them as black panthers. I'd like to take this opportunity to apologize to the black panther community. I'm sorry, big cats that don't actually exist and are actually regular panthers with a lot of really dark spots.

I love how right wingers love to bring up the NBPP poll controversy but always forget to mention the " patriot" that was armed with a pistol and two of his friends and were getting in the face an photographing Hispanic voters.  Seems some voter intimidation is fine if it is the right people that are intimidated.

I think a lot of folks have a problem with groups like New Black Panthers because of their actual publicized threats to harm white people...folks in my area saw that when they published the "Wanted Dead or Alive" George Zimmerman posters (even after he found innocent of murder...and that Trayvon Martin racially profiled and assaulted GZ)

And, the NBPP also threatened violence against all whites...the "Pink People" speech by the NBPP would bring a smile to Hitlers face

Only the most ignorant White Guilt leftist could defend NBPP...even the SPCC (who themselves dislike white folks)...has listed them a Hate Group

HotWingConspiracy: MS is teabag town regardless of who wins. This race is of little consequence.


It's still an unusual race.  A long time incumbent, in trouble, reaches out to the African American community for the first time, and his enemies are lining up to intimidate them and discourage them from voting.

This isn't suspicious:

True the Vote has found several precincts with abnormally high Republican voter turnout compared with historic levels. The organization found Panola County, for example, was split nearly down the middle for incumbent U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran (52 percent) and state Sen. Chris McDaniel (48 percent). One precinct, East Batesville 4, went 75 percent for Cochran and helped push him over the top in the county by 79 votes. That one precinct accounted for 84 percent of his margin of victory and had turnout 400 percent better than the average turnout for McDaniel.

1)  Zimmerman wasn't found "innocent," he was found "not guilty."

2)  You claim Trayvon Martin racially profiled and assaulted someone.  Can you please let us know what day he was tried and convicted of these charges by a jury of his peers?  Or are you simply going to presume guilt and refuse to give him the same benefit of doubt that the jury gave GZ because Trayvon is a darkie?

3)  How exactly is criticizing an accused murderer the same thing as voter intimidation?

Flatulent_Flea: Pro-tip: Propaganda like "White Guilt" gets you an insta-ignore.


People who use the term "white guilt" are usually people who deeply fear what they see as the erosion of white entitlement in America as the demographic face of the country changes

I don't ignore them as a rule but I do sort of pity them while laughing at them.
