    is worn by a white man I guess it re-assures whites and intimidates minorities?

            actually do "confront" the black panthers then it's the SEALS that should be arrested.

            As far as I can tell simply standing outside a polling place isn't illegal, no matter what your beliefs are.  

            Going to a polling location to deliberately "confront" others who are exercising their rights is absolutely illegal.

      Fox News seemed to love the "semi-military garb" back then. Especially if they were carrying guns.

      This is just so lame. What's next, Fox? A Jane Fonda sighting?

      •  a rally is different than a voting place (0+ / 0-)

        similarly, i completely approve of full on military garb at historical recreations, Halloween, etc.

        i just dont want it around polling places.
