Do you remember back in the day, about 2 years ago, when some members of the new Black Panther Party was said to be intimidating voters during the voting process and FOX News was all over it…..explaining just how violent these members were talking….the new Black Panter Party has a membership of about 5 people….a real force to be feared…or maube it was because they were African-American and we know how FOX feels about anyone with brown skin, huh?
Well it seems that the Black Panthers are not the only ones trying to intimidate voters….this happened in Houston during early voting for the mid-terms:
A Tea Party group called the King Street Patriots has been accused of “1960s style” voter intimidation in primarily minority precincts on the first day of early voting in Texas. The group is being sued by the Texas Democratic Party, following the filing of 14 voter intimidation complaints with the county clerk, and another two dozen with the Texas Democratic Party chairman.
The complaints, he said, came from Kashmere Gardens, Moody Park, Sunnyside and other predominantly minority neighborhoods. The complaints included poll watchers “hovering over” voters, “getting into election workers’ faces” and blocking or disrupting lines of voters waiting to cast their ballots.
“Keep in mind these are allegations of voter intimidation,” O’Rourke said. “It’s sometimes in the eye of the beholder.”
I watched FOX News as often as I could yesterday and today and so far I have heard NOTHING about this incident……nothing like the outrage they felt when the Panthers were accused of the same tactics…..
