    Compare the reaction of Rahm's "Chicago values" BS against the CFA CEO, Cathy and then placing his arm around Farrakhan. Who is more anti-gay (or Jew) Cathy or Farrakhan? Black churches are plenty politically active and as anti-gay as any in the nation, yet they get a pass because the race card trumps the gay card every time. Yes they can!

    Again, who is Farrakhan? The guy is for all intended purposes irrelevant on the grand scale. Whenever these guys are running through the WH and telling people they have Obama's ear, then you'll have a point. Until then, still irrelevant. This isn't the 1990s for heaven's sake.

    It's all a big Liberal plot to opress white people...unless they're gay.

Armed with a 9mm Glock automatic strapped to his side, Warden said he planned to photograph Hispanic voters entering polls in an effort to identify illegal immigrants and felons.

    A little bit on the situation in Arizona from the US Commission on Civil Rights report on the New Black Panthers incident, pg 17


    See the difference? The Bush DoJ refused to "bring any action ... notwithstanding the requests" in 2006. In the Philadelphia incident, not one voter registered at that polling place filed a complaint - it was outside Republican activists who claimed there was "voter intimidation"
    I oppose BOTH. Why don't you? It's wrong either way, not just one way. You are condoning the practice of the BBPP simply because the Bush administration made the same mistake? That's kind of dumb. The difference is, I oppose BOTH, and you don't. Why?

    LOL. Black's hardly ever vote as a block. If you think that the demorats would ever disrespect the "black leaders" then you are insane. Your excuse that NBPP voter intimidation or wanted "dead or alive" bounties is no big deal because blacks are not powerful ignores that neither are the minutemen. Either you enforce the law or you do not, but selective enforcement (Obama style) is dangerous. If you send in the DOJ for some "civil rights" cases and tell them to back off on others, then you have a problem.

    It is funny that the right is so focused on this relatively small new group, but does not have the same problem with KKK, white pride and worst wackos that are on the right and even in the GOP it self. Hypocrites.

    In one instance complaints made by local voters were filed, in the other case no complaints by local voters were filed - No difference?

    Any rational person would conclude that in one case there was actual intimidation and in the other instance, the locals thought the NBPP clowns were nothing more than jokes.

    WOW, with so many examples given, where do I begin? ;-)

    LOL. Which indicates more voter intimidation, the voter that comes forward and publically complains or the one that is afraid to do so?

    Wrong again. If the KKK is out there talking like this, they should be investigated. Oh wait. THEY ARE ALL THE TIME. If the KKK is inciting violence against blacks across the nation, the DOJ SHOULD step in and do something.

    Once again, I'm not allowing for one, and disallowing for the other. THAT IS WHAT THE LIBERALS DO! It's what YOU just did.
