    Two sides to a coin.
    How can you be biased by presenting news?

    That makes no sense. Of course this was news.


    And for anyone who claims the video isn't enough, how about the testimony?

    Voters at a precinct on Philadelphia's Fairmont Street witnessed unusual sights and sounds on Election Day on Nov. 4, 2008. Two members of the New Black Panther Party, King Samir Shabazz and Jerry Jackson, stood within 15 feet of this polling station dressed in military-style black jackets, black berets and black combat boots. Shabazz wielded a two-foot-long night stick.

    "Cracker, you are about to be ruled by a black man," one of the New Black Panthers told a white voter. They taunted others as "white devils." A black couple serving as GOP poll watchers felt endangered when the Panthers called them "race traitors."


    So for the liberals who traffic in race here you have a BLACK MAN who backs up the voter intimidation.

    The latest on this New Black Panther party voter intimidation issue...

    From an article on Politico.com:

    A conservative dismisses right-wing Black Panther 'fantasies'

    A scholar whom President George W. Bush appointed as vice chairwoman of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, Abigail Thernstrom has a reputation as a tough conservative critic of affirmative action and politically correct positions on race.

    But when it comes to the investigation that the Republican-dominated commission is now conducting into the Justice Department’s handling of an alleged incident of voter intimidation involving the New Black Panther Party — a controversy that has consumed conservative media in recent months — Thernstrom has made a dramatic break from her usual allies.

    This doesn’t have to do with the Black Panthers; this has to do with their fantasies about how they could use this issue to topple the [Obama] administration,” said Thernstrom, who said members of the commission voiced their political aims “in the initial discussions” of the Panther case last year.

    My fellow conservatives on the commission had this wild notion they could bring Eric Holder down and really damage the president,” Thernstrom said in an interview with POLITICO.

    The criticism has focused attention not just on Thernstrom, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, but on the partisan nature of the Civil Rights Commission and on a story that, like the controversy over the anti-poverty group ACORN, has raged almost completely outside the mainstream media.

    The facts of the case are relatively simple. Two men were captured on a video standing outside a polling place in a black Philadelphia neighborhood on Election Day in 2008. One of the men had a nightstick, if an unclear agenda — though a member of the black nationalist New Black Panther Party, he had earlier professed loathing for the Democratic "puppet" candidate, Barack Obama, who went on to overwhelmingly carry that precinct.

    Three Republican poll monitors filed complaints of intimidation — itself a federal crime — but no voters attested to being turned away. The Justice Department, while Bush was still president, investigated the incident and later, after Obama took office, decided that "the facts and the law did not support pursuing" the claims against the party and against a second, unarmed man, Justice spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler said.

    So, if a couple white boys, wearing hoods, totin' guns, were hanging out in front of a voting house, where black voters go to vote, you would be ok with that? It would just be free speech?

    Obviously you didn't read it. She never denied it was intimidation. She was chastizing conservatives who thought this could bring Holder down.

    Exactly the point of my post. I wasn't claiming the individual(s) in question didn't deserve to be prosecuted. In fact, if you've read the thread you'd know I believe they got off easy myself.

    Same goes for you because clearly you haven't read the entire thread either...just jump right on in there in the middle of things...

    Here, just for you:

    Quote Originally Posted by Objective Voice View Post

    The Klan would be wrong for uttering hate speech and brandishing weapons, too, if done outside a polling place on election day, BUT under the law they have every right to say pretty much what they want to say. As long as their words or actions DON'T deny me or anyone else their right to vote, they can look and act as intimidating as they want!

    Believe me, I understand that this is a hard pill for many white people to swallow. As an American let alone an African-American male, I don't like what happened either, but it pales in comparison to what has been done to my people of the course of generations. Hence, the reason I can accept a plea bargain in this case becasue there has not been any evidence to prove that any white voter's right to vote was denied them or that any white voter was intimidated or felt threatened enough by their actions to turn away from the voting booths.

    Freedom of assembly, freedom of speech...

    Commuicating a threat is about all this amounts to. The individual in question was directed by the justice system not to carry a deadly weapon near a polling place until 2012. In my book, justice was served (but perhaps would have been better served if the idiot in question was issued a gag order as well, but like I said, "freedom of speech"...).

    Then please explain your remark of "partisan politics as usual" when you point to a conservative going against what other conservatives believe.
