Video: Black Panthers Intimidate Voters at Philadelphia Polling Station

A new video has been released which shows the initial encounter:

NewsBusters has audio of a caller asking CNN why this story is not being covered:

A man called in to CNN’s Helpline on Tuesday wondering why the network hasn’t reported the Black Panthers who were seen standing in front of a Philadelphia polling station this morning, one of them carrying a billy club.

According to the caller (audio available here), he was going to vote for Obama until a friend told him about this incident. The caller said, “Now Fox has broadcast this, and I want to know why CNN has not broadcast this yet.”

I wonder…


Police arrive on the scene:

This is wrong on many levels but it’s also the first time I’ve laughed in a couple of days.

Power is flickering now. I doubt we will have it much longer. We have car batteries with power inverters for electronics and a generator for larger items. If Internet access is possible I will continue to update.
