Now they're worried about voter intimidation?
FOX News starts Election Day with an ominous breaking news banner warning that "New Black Panthers" are "intimidating white" voters in Philadelphia. "This is a member of the Black Panthers standing guard outside a polling place in Philadelphia," co-host Gretchen Carlson noted. "The organization said it was thinking about monitoring the elections. Critics say it’s more like intimidation."
The network "reports":
A member of the New Black Panther Party who was charged with voter intimidation in the 2008 election for standing outside a Philadelphia polling site was back Tuesday morning – in an official capacity.
Jerry Jackson, who was charged in the 2008 case along with Minister King Samir Shabazz, but later saw charges dropped by the Department of Justice, was seen early Tuesday outside a North Philadelphia voting site wearing the group’s trademark black beret, combat-style uniform and heavy boots. Fox News confirmed he is a designated poll watcher.
There were also reports of New Black Panther Party members at polling sites in Cleveland, Ohio, where they have also maintained a presence at early voting sites. Critics complain that they are an intimidating presence and could discourage white voters, who may be more likely to vote Republican, from entering polling sites.
"Fox News mentioned the New Black Panther Party over 95 times in less than two weeks in 2010," adds Raw Story. "After the Department of Justice declined to pursue charges against a member of the New Black Panther Party for carrying a billy club to a polling place."
A dog whistle so loud that even Helen Keler could hear it. Why not just claim that a "race war" will happen after the election instead of simply ignoring why Black poll watchers are needed in Black neighborhoods? Watch the "report" AFTER THE JUMP ...
