    As long as they respect the laws who cares? Besides, would you really be intimidated by that guy?

    So you'd have no issue with the KKK sending a representative to "monitor" the polling stations? I mean its just a white guy. Didn't they have batons last year?

    He's part of a radical racist organization.

    Notice - not Fox News... and they carried night sticks!


    BTW this is a DOJ whistle blower that was told by the DOJ to drop the case against black panthers last time. He was fired.

    What, specifically, was/is he doing to intimidate voters at this particular precinct?

    Here is the guy that was in front of the polling places in 2008. You draw your own conclusion

    Black Panthers? That's nothing. There were workers from Chick Fil A handing out those breakfast chicken sandwiches outside of my polling place. Now that is SCARY. :eek:

    It has the same effect, both are radical racist organizations. Only one is attempting to scare voters away by "monitoring" the doors.

    The only people who belong near a polling station are people who work there and people who vote, if he has cast his ballot its time to leave.

    ----------

    Doesn't look like hes voting to me. I don't see a line.

    I certainly won't be voting for Obama, but how much intimidation can really happen? Are they standing over you, monitoring the choice you make in the ballot?

    You can just lie if you really feel intimidated. I don't get it.

    I ask again, is it alright if we stick a few KKK members outside of a polling station or would you find that intimidating? I mean its not like they are going to stand over you while you vote for Obama.

    Why would I find it intimidating? They would be no more annoying than the jackasses that stand outside the polling areas and hand me pamphlets when I walk in.

    No, and for the same reason why I wouldn't be intimidated by a Black Panther. But, I get it, he's "black and intimidating", so as people like Dime21 say, he's a leftist thug.

    No I would not find it intimidating. They don't know who I'm voting for and they won't get me to change my vote. As long as they are not breaking any laws they have a right to be there.
