Right because its o.k. for POC to show up armed at polling places to intimidate and discourage white voters.


The photo in the Original Post was taken in front of a Family Dollar, that didn't look like a polling place to me. How about you?

You know........on second examination, I think you are correct. Per the story they were marching through Atlanta, not stationed at a polling place. But I think the reason to do that is to intimidate white voters. They did position themseves outside a polling place a few elections ago.

Worse......are the "optics" really helpful to the candidate? Would Trump want to be escorted down a street in a march surrounded by guys in Gestapo uniforms toting machine pistols?

Of course, I guess if the Black Panthers are about being Black Power/Black Seperatists, they have sorta won..........how many whites are left in Atlanta anyway?

They aren't escorting anyone, they are out exercising their rights. Only communists have issues with people exercising their rights.

Too many? Maybe the White Genocide will conclude and they can clear out the rest of the honkys.

Is that your assessment? Because I have seen most folks here posting about their rights to exercise their 2nd Amendment right, and not about their skin color.

Quite a lame attempt at race baiting though on your part.

Why is the left here so eager to see us pounce on armed (but law abiding) black men? Aren't you the group who always whines about our law enforcement officers allegedly "pigeon-holing" them? The only folks I see here trying to use their lawful assembly/RKBA against them is the left. The conservatives here have overwhelming supported their Constitutional rights (even if simultaneously rejecting their organization's beliefs)

Yet here you are essentially wishing and praying that we'll "slip up" and attack these folks for merely exercising their rights. Not only is the left using it to attack our gun rights (all of our gun rights, including the Panthers) but they are yet again scapegoating black Americans for their own political gains.

Despicable.

These guys are exercising their 1st and 2nd amendment rights, and I'll take them over some riotous punk antifa Marxists any day of the week. Funny how armed folks generally behave better, more politely and in a legal manner eh?

Stop scapegoating Black Americans who are just exercising their Constitutional rights. They have just as much right to bear arms as the rest of us. I say we should be encouraging what they are doing. They aren't breaking any laws, they aren't threatening anyone and they aren't hurting anyone. I say good for them! Stop throwing Black Americans under the bus for petty leftist political gambits.

That is the right inventing an alternate reality on this thread?

You should read the OP.

Sober, I'm not trying to invent any alternate reality or anything like that. I understood the point of the thread, or so I thought, as being to point out that even unpopular people/groups/causes deserve to have their Constitutional rights defended & respected.

Instead, I find several on the left baiting or otherwise chomping at the bit for us to attack these guys. My position on the Panther's beliefs has not changed, but as a Constitution loving American I would lay my own life down to defend their right to peaceably assemble and bear arms. It is our right as Americans (all of us, including the Panthers) to speak freely, assemble peacefully, criticize the government/a specific party and bear arms in defense of self, family, community and state.

Why on Earth the left would be attacking conservatives for this POV is entirely beyond me. I'm sure a few anti-gun zealots were hoping we'd turn against our own rights and make it easier to deny Citizens their unalienable right to Keep and Bear Arms. But that didn't happen. And instead of realizing/admitting they were wrong, many of those same lefties would rather continue beating the dead horse (as they have with so many other now-moot issues)

So like I said, the left needs to stop scapegoating black Americans. They claim we are constantly making examples out of Black Men, yet it is their policies and their party that promotes this type of nonsense. Especially through futile and illegal endeavors like gun control. Any sort of gun control/AWB would be struck down as little more than an un-Constitutional bill of attainder - which seeks to illegally and very, very recklessly punish some arbitrary facet of a person/group or ideology instead of addressing specific unlawful conduct as the law is intended to do.

Seems like the radical anti-gunners among the left wing is all too happy to throw armed Black Men under the bus in order to advance one of their useless pet projects: namely gun control. Glad the left feels that engaging in cultural warfare/petty attacks on the conservative way of life is worth more than upholding the rights of all Citizens... including Black Citizens and including those with political views/ideologies we disagree with.

But that is the difference between the left and right isn't it? We seek more rights, less government, sovereign individualism. The left seeks less rights, more government and mob-rule. The left seeks to suppress or otherwise delegitimze/dehumanize views it disagrees with, and it only supports the parts of the Constitution that it can twist or otherwise falsely misrepresent in order to trick people into believing it means something that supports their arguments, of course

You either support the Constitution, precisely as written without interpretation, or you are an enemy of the Constitution & We The People. (Not you, only using "You" in a very general sense) It isn't a pick-and-pluck document. Failing to fully defend all aspects of the Constitution is failing to do our duty as Americans to uphold & defend the Constitution. Absolutely nothing is worth budging even an inch where the Constitution and the sovereignty of the Constitution is concerned. The Constitution is the final say on all things, and it says we have the RIGHT to assemble peacefully/speak freely and that we have the RIGHT to keep and bear arms.

Rights need no explanations or justifications. There is no such thing as "need" where rights are concerned. They are unalienable, immutable, and set in stone. And anything short of that is simply not good enough.

Krakatoa, it is truly disheartening to see so many lefties here all too happy to throw Black Americans under the bus when it suits their political ambitions. Of course, after the Kavanaugh farce nothing should surprise me any more

At least they've demonstrated time and time again how -frankly- full of # they really are.

Excuse the profanity, I try to avoid it when writing as much as possible but it is despicable to see their attitudes change with the winds.

Glad to see not everyone has lost their minds. So proud to see all the conservatives standing up for these guys' rights. Like many others have said, its always easy to stand up for the things you care about. But the real test of patriotism, at least in my humble opinion, is the willingness to stand up for what is objectively right no matter who it is. And from what I see here (and elsewhere), we pass with flying colors

That's all this ever was. An attempt to play the race card. Since none of us took the bait, now they're saying we're making stuff up. This is just ridiculous.

Imagine if it were a group of white men, brandishing assault weapons and screaming "White Power" or some such tripe. We'd be strung up and ostracized and more than likely thrown in gitmo for "Domestic Terrorism"
Double standards much?


If that were the case, everyone on here would be calling them patriots. Double standards much?

If you read the thread, most everyone on here is calling them patriots... or at least saying they have every right to do what they're doing.

No worry about skin color... no double standard... just a standard. Which apparently beats no standards.

Nah... just pointing out the difference. Most Republicans claim that an AR-15 isn't an assault rifle.... but it is when it suits their agenda....

Perhaps in your mind....that is the case. For me, and others here, skin color is irrelevant with regards to Constitutional rights. Too bad you cannot get past that limitation as well, and feel the need to race bait.

Shame.

Because it is not an assault rifle (whatever that is since it is a made up term used to confuse and scare the ignorant). But, keep trying to race bait and make blind assumptions.
