The New Black Panthers Aren't Turning Away Voters! It's Actually The GOP!
A nice play upon the controversial voter identification laws that Republican governors want to pass in order to keep Blacks, Hispanics, young voters and the poor away from the polls.
Rehashing the 2008 U.S. Elections, on that day a conservative activist filmed two New Black Panthers standing at a poll center. One was a poll worker, the other one was carrying a baton.
Now I would understand the outrage with the man and the baton, but think if they really want to intimidate voters, wouldn't they have a firearm instead of a wooden stick?
These are plays to the choir of ignorance and misinformation. So this is probably why these Republicans are so concerned with voter id laws. It's noteworthy that the NBP members were in a predominately Black neighborhood.
The purpose of creating these voter id laws is to prevent people from supporting Democratic candidates.
Republicans are concerned with voter fraud. Right?
