A self-described armed militia group in Wisconsin plans to target African American Democrats and responded to the controversy in the typical way: You’re a racist if you call out racism.  “We prefer our people be armed,” Wisconsin Poll Watcher Militia’s Facebook page reads. “Some will be heading to some of Milwaukee, Racine, and Beloit’s worst areas. We will be armed with a list of people to look for at each location.”

The dialogue was tagged on Twitter, then posted on PoliticusUSA.

A photo in the group’s Facebook page shows exactly the type of areas they will be targeting.

Patrick Murray specifically says his group won’t be targeting Republicans. Only Democrats.

The group responded on Facebook saying, “We can assure you that we will be targeting all democrats, not just black ones. If you think we meant blacks only it is because you are a racist who thinks the only people with warrants are black. We know better because we have a nice list of people who are wanted democrat activist types. Most are actually white. We will target everyone.”

In the same breath that he said he’ll target “everyone” he said only Democrats.

PoliticusUSA reports:

The fact that they are targeting a specific group of individuals based on race and perceived political affiliation means that their operation is a violation of the Voting Rights Act. According to the Justice Department, “The administration of elections is chiefly a function of state government. However, federal authorities may become involved where there are possible violations of federal law. In cases where intimidation, coercion, or threats are made or attempts to intimidate, threaten or coerce are made to any person for voting or attempting to vote, the Department of Justice can consider whether there is federal jurisdiction to bring civil claims or criminal charges under federal law. Depending on the nature of the allegations, they may fall into the jurisdiction of different parts of the Department. If you have information about allegations of intimidation, please contact us.”

These are Scott Walker’s supporters. How terribly embarrassing.

Contact the Department of Justice here. Because someone has to be watching this armed militia while they intimidate voters. November 4th is right around the corner. Don’t be intimidated.

    Pardon my naiveté, but unless they are law enforcement officers, how would they get a list of people with outstanding warrants?

    Would the Supreme Court care to reconsider their demolition of the Voting Rights Act last summer?

    Can these people get anymore moronic…I would love to see an opposing un-armed group standing guard between these ibilcilic yahoos and the people exercising their apparently according to these RWNJs GOD GIVEN RIGHT to VOTE, or is carrying a weapon the only god given right?

  • I stated in a below post that some black panthers were found guilty of voter intimidation; I stand corrected, after looking into it even further, it turns out that all of the charges against all of those involved were dropped. My mistake, I honestly thought one of them was barred from certain activity for a time. It’s now corrected.

    • Cthulhu0818

      Maybe that’s because they weren’t intimidating anyone.

      • Could be, or not worth going further w/it, or political pressure. I’ll make my own judgement viewing the video and reading the eyewitness accounts.

    A Militia Dummy writes of: some of Milwaukee, Racine, and Beloit’s worst areas

    Laughable, mang! I went to Beloit College back in the day, and I presume that Beloit is still a peaceful and sleepy little college town with a somewhat segregated “black part of town.”

    Anybody wanna guess which part of Beloit the Militia Dummy feels is the “worst area?”

    A “black” look.

  • sick of the ignorance

    No problem. Let’s make sure we have lots of black men and women toting AK-47’s making sure the white Republican voting places are heavily monitored. The 2nd amendment gives black folks the same rights to carry arms as the white ones. Assholes.
