Those critics also miss the point that it is a crime to attempt to intimidate voters and anyone assisting voters, which would include poll watchers, and no one watching the videotape could come to any conclusion other than the New Black Panthers were trying to intimidate people at that poll in Philadelphia.On the issue of poll watchers, one of the witnesses at the first hearing of the U. Commission on Civil Rights, Chris Hill, testified on that specific point and what happened when he got to the polling place. I went straight between them through the door to find our poll watcher, who was inside the building at the time…he was pretty shaken up…he was visibly upset. HILL: He was called a race traitor for being a poll watcher, credentialed poll watcher for the Republican Party as a black man, and that he was threatened if he stepped outside of the building, there would be hell to pay.During an interview on WABC Radio’s “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” Shabaz was asked whether his group is planning to go to U. polling stations in the upcoming presidential election. Coates stated in testimony, “I had people who told me point-blank that [they] didn’t come to the voting rights section to sue African-American people.” Coats further compared the NBPP case to an earlier case from 2006, where he claimed Justice attorneys expressed anger at having to investigate Ike Brown, a black democratic politician in Mississippi accused of discriminating against white voters.Shabazz replied: “I will say that as this election comes up in November, we will consider our options. Racism, anti-white activism The NBPP is a controversial black extremist party whose leaders are notorious for their racist statements and for leading anti-white activism.That claim is patently false although it was repeated last night again by Abigail Thernstrom on NBC News.
Armed Black Panthers blocked a doorway to a polling location to intimidate voters in Philadelphia, Pa., according to Republican poll observers.No good deed goes unpunished and no bad deed goes unrewarded.After getting a pass on their voter intimidation in the last election, the fun loving gang of the New Black Panther Party promises to head back out to intimidate voters in the upcoming election.This is voter intimidation arranged for by the Obama Administration with hardly enough plausible deniability to wrap a microdot in.And the Black Panthers aren't just outside the polling places. Court-appointed Republican poll inspectors are being forcibly removed from voting stations in some Philadelphia wards and replaced in some cases by Democratic inspectors and even members of the Black Panthers, according to GOP officials.
