    More racist white people with guns just what american needs.

    http://www.politicususa.com/2014/09...rican-democrats-polling-places-wisconsin.html
    A militia group in Wisconsin is planning to target African-American Democrats at polling places in order to suppress the vote and keep Republican governor Scott Walker in office.
    A visit to the group’s Facebook page features makes it clear exactly who they are targeting. All of the pictures on the page feature African-Americans. The group is trying to get African-Americans who may have outstanding warrants arrested in order to keep them from voting. The group wants people to report those they suspect of having warrants out on them to the police on election day, “Do the community a favor and keep an eye out for people wanted on warrants and report them to the police on election day.”

    White racists? Is that comment really necessary?

    More importantly- voting does not matter outside of the local level town hall type things. When people get this through their thick heads then maybe we can change some things in this country.

    Yeah I read a bit further (my mistake earlier) and saw that.

    I retract that part of my previous statement, but the more important part still absolutely stands.

    Yes but the idea that they want to do it is the issue. There is no real voter fraud going on.

    Ugh, those blasted "New Black Panthers" have done nothing but sully the name of a legitimate organization which they have absolutely no connection to. Seriously, the real Black Panthers have openly denounced them.

    would you admit the same of the militia above if other militias denounced them?

    You're getting antsy because it says "Militia Group"? Is that the name of a specific milita group? If so, they should probably consider changing it to something less generic. Otherwise I don't see the problem here; If the author was trying to accuse ALL militias then they would have omitted the "group" part.

    Opening the door for a little old lady. How intimidating. That guy should be thrown in jail then executed.

    Except militia isn't the name of a group that they're using, it's the description of what they are. It'd be like asking "if other athletes denounced X racist, would you say the same thing". Two separate, different, things.

    Really? You're comparing guys saying "we prefer our people be armed" and "I will not report Republicans, only Democrats" and "They have a 'look' about them" to what even your own link said was "limited to 'one dejected, unarmed' man" by a former SEAL who went out looking for such things?

    well it was pretty much a classic post wasn't it.....a post about black panthers "oppressing" whites is pretty much inevitable in a thread like this one

    I have no problems with them at all, just remembered they made news for being at the polls.

    thanks.

    sure.

    Actually (if accurately reported) that's completely racist. If they allow militia guns at or outside of a polling place it is completely self evident that our standards for freedom have been corrupted. Jim Crow, here we come. You know even in the good ole Wild West the progressive towns made cowboys check their guns at the sherrif's office cause a significant % of them (cowboys) were idiots. :-/

    Isn't that is what this is all about? How would you describe it?

    I'd take a page out of Dog the Bounty Hunter's book and call them out to the police. They would have to be a licensed bounty hunter to go after someone with a warrant (although I freely admit that I don't know anything about citizen's arrest laws in Wisconsin). Otherwise, they may be violating that person's 4th amendment rights.

    In short, they run the risk of making the arrest illegal, on top of the risk of having themselves arrested as well.

    BL.

    they are not making the arrest, they are going to waste the cops time by pointing out people who MIGHT have arrest warrants, I am guessing their IQ is well below room temperature.
