Are Black Panther guards intimidating voters at city polls? The National Black Panther Party says as much.
“We will be at the polls in the cities and counties in many states to ensure that the enemy does not sabotage the black vote, which was won through the blood of the martyrs of our people.”
A confrontation in Philadelphia was reported, one between a veteran and two Black Panther guards.
Michelle Malkin has more.
William Ayers and his Weather Underground went on a bombing campaign in defense of the Black Panthers, and bombed the house of a judge in New York who was trying Black Panther members charged with various crimes in their own campaign. But William Ayers didn’t matter in the campaign, and he shouldn’t matter now. Right?
UPDATE: From NewsBusters: CNN Caller: Where’s Your Report On Black Panther Voter Intimidation in Philly?
UPDATE II: From RedState: Voting twice in Philly “We have already heard that Republican Election Board members have been tossed out of polling stations in Philadelphia. What’s next?”
Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico… Are you watching and listening? Go Vote.
UPDATE III: A reader comments. “Even Fox news is calling BS on this one. Black Panthers? That’s so laughably lame, why not also say there’s a hippie gang and biker gang taking your daughters as well?” True enough with regard to whether or not these two men were or are members of the Black Panthers. However, I would suggest the more apt comparison would be to “also say there’s a hippie gang and biker gang” and saying it’s the Hell’s Angels blocking the door. I would also suggest that their emulation of Black Panther garb is surely not accidental or coincidental.
Point is this, regardless of any group affiliation or none at all: Two men dressed in military garb (trousers bloused to boots military style, beret, etc.) with one of them tapping a nightstick into the palm of his hand declaring “We are tired of white supremacy” has absolutely no place whatsoever at a polling place. That, sir, is most certainly not BS.
