Have people been watching the activities of the "King Street Patriots"?

If so, do you decry their activities as much as you did the "New Black Panther Voter Intimidation"?

Or, is it permissible for white, Tea-Party representatives to intimidate minorities?

"The complaints, [Harris County attorney Terry O’Rourke] said, came from Kashmere Gardens, Moody Park, Sunnyside and other predominantly minority neighborhoods. The complaints included poll watchers “hovering over” voters, “getting into election workers’ faces” and blocking or disrupting lines of voters waiting to cast their ballots."

The King Street Patriots even advertise for people who want to disrupt the voting process in minority neighborhoods on their official website:

    New to me, I have to say ... sounds nasty. Repubs don't like to admit it, yet they're pretty talented at dirty tricks.

    But unless the KSP can switch 5% of the Florida vote to Romney, he's goin' down anyway.

    So you are for voter ID and safe polling places to ensure a safe vote?

    I oppose any infringement on free, safe and fair voting.

    I saw video of the New Black Panthers. This is a blog that I've never heard of without one image. If it's true yes, I oppose voter intimidation.

    Of course their tactics won't be decried by the GOP because the GOP wants to keep the race wars going by trying to disenfranchise minorities, the only thing that the GOP has is fear and divisiveness.
