Yes, it is intimidation of "their" people. Fortunately, they can't go to people's homes and force them to get out and vote. Although I wouldn't be surprised if they tried.

They don't intimidate me. If they try, things will get ugly. I spent 10 years in the military protecting our nation, and the right for people to vote, that last thing that's going to happen is one of those goons intimidating me.

I doubt they will be at my polling place. The black panther party isnt real popular in the Ozark mountains.

Black Panthers won't show their faces here in Arizona, too many "regular" people carry and WILL shoot if hassled.

They were a joke in 2008 and I suspect will be again this time around. If they stood in front of my polling place staring me down, I'll start laughing. Of course if they start trouble.....

It's not your polling places that have to be worried about, they have no intention of going there. It's the polling places that are in heavily poor minority areas. And yes, they will intimidate some of the people. It wasn't a joke in 2008 if you were voting in one of those places and didn't want to vote the party line.

Why is this even thread worthy? Who really cares what a non-existent group chooses to do.

It was only a joke to "Turn a Blind Eye" Holder.
