While troubling, this development may not be entirely surprising. In a September 2012 radio interview, the Black Panthers national chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz claimed that his group may, once again, take to the polling stations on election day.
“I will say that as this election comes up in November, we will consider our options,” Shabazz saidduring his interview with WABC. “And we will consider the fact whether we will legally and lawfully go to the polls again to make sure there is no intimidation against our people, which was our intent in 2008.”
During the interview with “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” the Panthers leader also noted that his organization was not found to be unlawful in the actions that they took in 2008. Thus, taking similar actions again in 2012, in his view, wouldn’t be problematic.
Now I ask, who exactly is it trying to intimidate voters? It was pretty clear on the video, what happened in 2008 but Eric Holder refused to prosecute. So here we go again.
Now consider this, just suppose the KKK showed up in full ropes outside of polling places in the South.....do you thing for a minute the media would ignore it and the DOJ would decide not to pursue charges?
