Really? I thought it was accurate and pointed out hypocrisy. I love how "progressives" just invent cases of racism. Seriously, when are you idiots going to stop obsessing over political issues picked from the kids menu?

The only thing I know about the black panthers at the polling place was the picture of two dweeby looking black guys dressed up in black panther costumes.

Can you full me in on what happened?


Watch the video, it's all there. It's terrifying how the held open the door for those nice white ladies.

Absolutely horrifying, you can see the fear in the ladies' faces as they thank those nice men for holding the door for them.

The horror!

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.

sammyk: 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 heard tonight that his opponent took the clip of that, and added the sound of a bleating sheep, to make a campaign ad against him.

Somacandra: iheartscotch: the Justice department wouldn't prosecute individuals of a certain panther party for any sort of voter intimidation incident.

img.fark.net

I don't understand. How is it intimidation for people to stand around in a public place with camo and guns? Open carry and all that.

I dunno about you, but I wouldn't like to be the guy in the black striped shirt right then unless I was wearing bullet proof shoes.  And that guy in front of him looks like he's feeling a little nuts or would be if he could find them.

/ I guess some people really are more equal than others

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

It may not be intimidation; but, it's stupid to rile people that way. I only open carry in places where you can ride your horse down Main Street. Elsewhere, people seem to frown on open carry.


Calling for a boycott of a CEO because of opinions he has stated in the past: intimidation

Holding weapons and signs about "refreshing the tree of liberty" etc.: just good old-fashioned honest free speech

I suppose different people define words different ways, but carrying a weapon to a political event is, in my opinion, a clear statement that you will resort to violence if you don't get what you want.

But of course that's not nearly as fascist as saying you'll urge people not to buy products and services.

You know, if some backwater country had this many election problems, we'd be demanding they send UN poll watchers to make sure everything was done on the up and up.

Since Mississippi would be a third world hellhole if it wasn't part of the US, maybe someone should call the UN.

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.

So, what black panthers are you talking about? The two guys in PA who left when asked? Did either of them actually interact with anyone outside of posing for pictures?

I mean, if black guys intimidate you, then you've got some issues.

Does it really matter which incident I'm talking about? Even if it was a legit voter intimidation incident; nobody would do shiat about it. The incident in 2008 demonstrated that the Justice department wouldn't prosecute individuals of a certain panther party for any sort of voter intimidation incident.

/ I don't have an issue with the black panther movement, they do have several good points; I do have an issue with equal application of the law. A person's skin color should not effect the application of the law.

And if it were actual voter intimidation instead of someone being afraid of a black guy, they would have been prosecuted.

Skin color didn't play into the decision to not prosecute.

Ok.
If you'll indulge me; I'd like to play a little devil's advocate here.

You'd be alright with it if two members of the Klan stood, just stood mind you, in front of a polling place?

/ granted, they'd probably need police protection to not get ripped apart

// before you say KKK != NBPP; they are both classified as hate groups; with link for the NBPP http://www.splc ...


I'd be fine with it, although I may decide to fark with them. They'd also have to leave when asked. That's the other part. I'll ask: do the klan losers show their face or do they hide behind their pillowcases? At least the black guys in PA weren't afraid to show their faces.

If the law lets them linger, then they can linger. I can also use my First Amendment right to laugh at them and call them cowards, losers and shiatbags, though.

Just out of curiosity, does that 'we' indicate that you are schizophrenic? Or are you perhaps speaking on behalf of your own political group? Or are you just presuming to speak for a race, while being unaware of the irony?

Why would you send poll watchers to predominantly black precincts (in MS) for a Republican primary? Running low on tumbleweeds?

Also, paywalls make Baby Jebus cry.
