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.

[su_center_ad]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. [su_csky_ad]

    Not Jim Crow, though. Just simple, good old ‘murican poll watching in urban areas with high concentrations of “them”.

            From a letter to the Florida Today (Brevard County) two days ago, apparently in all seriousness:

            Suggestion for making voters more enlightened

            The Voting
            Rights Act is a well-intended law. Under it, however, one must be only 18, be a U.S. citizen and be able to breathe in and out every 17 seconds in order to vote.

            As other recent letters have stated, we have anelectorate comprised of too many uninformed voters. Many of them are
            clueless when it comes to the issues.

            Voting is too important a matter to be left to the uninformed and apathetic. The Voting Rights Actshould be amended to require a person to pass a written test demonstrating a basic knowledge of our history, our system of government
            and an understanding of at least some of the issues we face before being allowed to register to vote. At a minimum, everyone should be ableto pass a test similar to the one legal immigrants must pass to attain U.S. citizenship.

            A more enlightened electorate would result in better qualified, more responsive and more competent people being elected to public office.

          • Cosmic_Surfer September 20th, 2014 at 8:32 pm

            Personally, I think they need to require every citizen over the age of 18 to vote – have polling over the weekend and open Saturday and Sunday for voters who were registered too late for a mail in ballot and have mail in for everyone else…but then I think we need to have real people worthy of the position as candidates, federally funded campaigns only, allowing no commercials, robocalls or mailers and only 6 debates held within 6 weeks of the election. Silly me, I actually think there is a chance for real people as servants of the people instead of over 300 Wall St shills in Congress and two corporate whores sitting in the WH like we have had for 2 centuries

          • Carla Akins September 20th, 2014 at 8:56 pm

            I am all good with that, isn’t it very similar to what they do in Australia? If you could somehow work in taxing the churches and the NFL, that would be great.

          • Cosmic_Surfer September 21st, 2014 at 6:42 pm

            Kind of a mix of multiple countries (weekend voting; compulsory voting, etc)

            Compulsory voting in the following countries:

            Costa Rica
            Dominican Republic
            France (senate only)

            Switzerland (Schaffhausen)

          • Carla Akins September 21st, 2014 at 6:49 pm

            So it’s successful in many countries, I find that hopeful. I like this idea a lot.

            Well that would rule many rwnjs out. I just went to this poll watchers’ Facebook page and it’s somehow magically disappeared since I wrote this pot. I guess they’re going to start another one using another name now.

          • tiredoftea September 20th, 2014 at 9:13 pm

    • tracey marie September 20th, 2014 at 9:30 pm

      legally they are not allowed within 100 feet of the entrance, they are also not allowed to approach, talk to or intimidate people waiting in line to vote. Both are felonies

  4. juicyfruityyy September 20th, 2014 at 8:10 pm

    They are not frightening anyone. It would just increase voter turn-out. People are tired of their fear mongering.

    I don’t condone this action but it looks as though these guys are finally fighting back against groups which have been doing these acts of terrorism for decades, and you know who they are.

    • jasperjava September 20th, 2014 at 11:03 pm

      The terrorism you’re talking about must be the Klan terror that prevented Black people from voting.

      I don’t see how armed racists duplicating that activity is somehow “fighting back”.

    • Red Mann September 21st, 2014 at 12:16 am

      No, who are they?

    • greenfloyd September 21st, 2014 at 1:24 am

      Problem is, the last place you’re going to find a real criminal is a polling place! What this “militia” will come up with is people with traffic fines unpaid, or for a little pot possesion or some other minor issue. “Terrorism?” Really!
      Wisconsin Democrats need to take a pro-active position, advocate amnesty periods so people can clear up these issues without facing immediate incaraceration. Civic leaders need to instruct their police to not interfer in voting.

      • raincheck September 21st, 2014 at 7:19 am

        Well said!
        They tried using billboards near the polling places as well.. to make people think they were going to get arrested if they showed up there

      • Thames September 21st, 2014 at 3:21 pm

        How absurd. That is, unless I’m unaware that you are a great prophet of some kind. You can tell exactly what people have done and what laws they have Broken. WOW! How about you going to a voting place and point out to these people that you now what they did., and then give them a chance to repent before turning them in. I mean after all, you being aware of the kind of people attending, it would be your public responsibility to do as you said should be done. Perhaps you could prophesy over me? Oh wait. Your a Democrat. I know exactly what it would be.

        • greenfloyd September 22nd, 2014 at 11:53 pm

        no, the law stands and the judges and the poll watchers will make it happen. Poll watchers call the cops as well as the judges and judges have the power to make someone leave.

        • Red Mann September 21st, 2014 at 12:10 am

  14. Spirit of America September 20th, 2014 at 10:04 pm

    From this article only(excluding author’s titling and their own input), I don’t see where the jerks said anything about blacks in particular.
    That being said, anyone know WHY they are going around to these areas w/lists? I mean, ok, they go to an area, see someone on their list, then what? Why are they ‘looking’ for anyone at all? Are they going to yell at them, or tell them to go away… did they say what their goal is? Seems kind of like an exercise in wasting time to me. I never did understand people who think they are ‘intimidating’ people going to vote since the intimidator has no way of knowing how someone will or did vote to begin with; when the black panthers were found guilty a few years ago of it, I didn’t get why they would risk jail on something that doesn’t seem to me to have much chance of success any how.

    • searambler September 20th, 2014 at 10:22 pm

      Follow the link:

      “A visit to the group’s Facebook page features makes it clear exactly who they are targeting. All of the pictures on the page feature African-Americans. The group is trying to get African-Americans who may have outstanding warrants arrested in order to keep them from voting. The group wants people to report those they suspect of having warrants out on them to the police on election day, “Do the community a favor and keep an eye out for people wanted on warrants and report them to the police on election day.”

      The “poll watchers” also plan on harassing and following people who they suspect of being wanted on warrants to their homes. The plan seems to be to use the police to intimidate African-Americans into not voting in November’s election.

      The group admits that they are targeting Democrats. They aren’t exactly subtle in making it clear that they are targeting African-American voters. The scheme is an attempt to intimidate African-American voters while getting around the Voting Rights Act. The point of this campaign isn’t to get felons off the streets. The “poll watchers” are trying to keep African-Americans away from the polls.”

    • jasperjava September 20th, 2014 at 11:00 pm

      “I don’t see where the jerks said anything about blacks in particular”
      I think it was referred to obliquely in the comments, about these Democratic voters having a certain “look” about them.

      “Seems kind of like an exercise in wasting time to me.”
      You don’t have to suppress a huge number of votes in order to have an effect. Look at Florida in 2000. If a few hundred more people had been allowed to exercise their right to vote, Al Gore would have become President and recent history would have been much different.

      “I never did understand people who think they are ‘intimidating’ people
      going to vote since the intimidator has no way of knowing how someone
      will or did vote to begin with”

      I think it’s pretty clear that if an armed thug sees an African-American going to the polls, chances are pretty slim that he or she will be voting Republican. If they scare him or her away, the odds are in their favor.

      “when the black panthers were found guilty a few years ago of it”
      The Black Panthers were guilty of nothing. They were acting as tough looking doormen in a predominantly African-American neighborhood. It’s a shame that a lot of white people think that Black people are inherently “intimidating” (ref. Ben Stein shaking in his boots at the sight of Michael Brown’s “incredibly strong, scary self”)

      • Spirit of America September 20th, 2014 at 11:24 pm

        “The Black Panthers were guilty of nothing” they were found guilty, then at the sentencing stage charges were dropped. They were found guilty though.

        • Red Mann September 21st, 2014 at 12:03 am

          One guy with a nightstick that never actually intimidated anyone was very, very bad, but multiple people with guns is not a problem? WTF?

          • trenaherringtonchapman September 22nd, 2014 at 9:00 pm

            It’s implied just as your tacit approval is implied when you ignore the current issue with your pathetic attempt to deflect attention to an essentially non-existent “Black Panther” case.

          • Spirit of America September 23rd, 2014 at 4:56 am

            No, it is not implied, you wish it to be there so you see it there, but it wasn’t implied. And as for the ‘tacit approval’ did you miss me calling them jerks and it being a waste of time? Some way to approve of something…
            I don’t approve of wrong doing, regardless of who is doing it. Hence my reference to the black panther… that wasn’t a deflection, it was to show disapproval to an activity, regardless of who.

    If it isn’t already against the law to intimidate voters outside the polls, it should be. But this is Wisconsin, home of the most corrupted republican party in the country.

  17. greenfloyd September 21st, 2014 at 1:01 am

    Another horrible example of this New Jim Crow. It will be interesting to see how cities and their polilce respond to these “poll watchers” on election day. Or more importanly before that. Where possible courts should set a week or two for people to clear warrants, pay fines or make reasonable arrangements for payment, Otherwise, I fear, we could see violence at Wisconsin polling places where the memory of Michael Brown and Ferguson MO remain vivid reminders to both minority citiizens and law enforcement.

    • Cats r Flyfishn September 25th, 2014 at 7:22 pm

      Poll Watcher is an official term and requires a certificate signed by the board of elections. A “Poll Watcher” is allowed inside the poll for the purpose of counting the number of people that vote. I’ve done this several times. Last time for the Obama campaign and all I had to do was periodically report the number of voters. I had to sit away from the voting booths and I was not to talk to any voters prior to casting their vote. These so-called poll watchers are impostors and the judge of elections has every right to have them removed.

      • greenfloyd September 25th, 2014 at 9:31 pm

        Unfortunately I think these people plan to profile people standing on line outside the polling place proper.

    would probably be illegal since campaigning within X number of yards
    of a polling place is illegal and what they are doing is singling out
    individuals for political gain, then they should be warned, then if that
    doesn’t work, thrown in jail. ~~~~~~~~~~ works for me.

      NO! Better that they show up with smart phones – take pictures of these folks with guns trying to intimidate voters then call the police and state and federal elections boards and report them. Voter Intimidation is a felony which will get you a year in jail, a fine and loss of your gun rights.

    I don’t care what color the voters are, showing up at any polling place with guns is intimidation and I do hope the voters can ignore them. Frankly, as a Democrat this type of stupidity would make me more apt to show up to vote than not. Although I plan to vote if I have to crawl the entire 2 miles to the polling place. This makes me so angry, I hope that no one is injured by these stupid gun toting a**holes.

      Don’t ignore them, report them. Voter intimidation is a felony and will get you one year in jail and a fine.

      And keep in mind that once they are convicted of a felony, in the state of Wisconsin, they then lose their gun rights.

      • katie1111 September 21st, 2014 at 1:06 pm

        I really doubt that most places would consider it intimidation, but you are right after they ignore them and vote, they should report it. The reason I said ignore them is this is an obvious attempt to scare people away from the polls. It would not scare me away but I am sure it would scare some people.Open carry is not illegal there and as long as they are acting as if they are peacefully protesting, they are surely within their rights to be there.

  26. Naithom September 21st, 2014 at 12:04 pm

    The law that they would be breaking is Intimidation of Voters, 18 U.S.C. § 594 which makes it illegal to use intimidation, threats, or coercion, or attempt to use any of these means, to interfere with the right of another to vote or vote as the individual chooses, or to cause the individual to vote or not vote for any particular candidate for federal office.

    What needs to be done is have the DA’s in the area notify the police to be on the lookout for any of these domestic terrorists ( take down the names of the ones who have identified themselves on FB) and notify county Dems that anyone seeing a civilian carrying a firearm near a voting station needs to be turned in for breaking the law.

    • joe barron September 21st, 2014 at 6:59 pm

      when u mention intimidation, do you mean similar to the clubs the new black panthers used 5 years ago??

      • CandideThirtythree September 21st, 2014 at 7:42 pm

        You still telling the same old lies? It was ONE guy and he was not intimidating anyone, it has been to trial so stop lying or can’t you help being a racist POS?

        • GeorgeW148 September 22nd, 2014 at 8:00 am

          Candide, the only lies is the one you just wrote. The case was dropped only because of the DOJ’s reluctance to pursue cases against African Americans. Emails found under the FOIA shows political appointees were directly involved in the decision not to prosecute. In addition, the Civil Rights Commission concluded in their report that numerous civil rights violations occurred, provided the report to the DOJ, who still refused to do anything with it.

          Two separate attorneys who worked at the DOJ, J. Christian Adams and Christopher Coates both resigned their positions after being ordered not to pursue cases against minorities, regardless of the facts of the case.

          Keep drinking the cool-aid, I’m sure it tastes real good.

          • CandideThirtythree September 22nd, 2014 at 11:14 am


            You are a piece of work.

          • GeorgeW148 September 22nd, 2014 at 4:40 pm

            Typical liberal response. There was nothing racist at all in my posting, but because it disagrees with your point of view, you call names. Nor am I a liar. Every bit of information I posted, I took from research on the incident from the web.

            But, continue to deflect and attack when your point of view is not enough to win a debate.

            Your assessment of it being 1 guy and he was not intimidating is not even close to accurate, but if you would quit watching msnbc long enough to do your own research, you would find yourself just a bit more educated on this and other topics.

          • CandideThirtythree September 22nd, 2014 at 5:21 pm

            You claimed that African Americans are not prosecuted because they are black when everyone knows that is lie, black people are arrested and prosecuted more than white people for the same offenses. You think we are stupid enough to believe that there are no black people in jail?

            So that makes you a racist and a liar.

            And using sources like the KKK websites and Stormfront and other white supremacist websites as proof of anything also makes you a liar and a racist.

            So that also makes you a racist and a liar… I would have said a lying racist but that would be redundant.

          • GeorgeW148 September 22nd, 2014 at 5:52 pm

            I never said African Americans are not in jail, I said the DOJ was accused, by two separate DOJ attorneys of refusing to prosecute African Americans for civil rights voting violations. I also never made any mention about who is prosecuted more, whites or blacks. So how can I be lying about a statement I never made?

            As far as which website I got my information from, its called wikipedia. Yeah, I know, not the most accurate website in the world, but definitely not the websites you mentioned.

            But… keep feeling the need to call names and deflect. Have you considered anger management therapy. You seem to have a bit of hostility in your posts. I highly recommend it.

          • CandideThirtythree September 22nd, 2014 at 8:46 pm

            We know those dog whistle codes, you are not fooling anyone except yourself if you don’t think we all see right through your flimsy cover. you are a racist and a liar and you are spreading rwnj propaganda.

          • GeorgeW148 September 22nd, 2014 at 9:44 pm

            Again, you bring no argument to the debate, just vile name calling. There has been nothing even remotely said by me that could be even closely construed as racist. Someone mentioned the incident with the NBPP in context of voter intimidation. You countered that point with:

            You still telling the same old lies? It was ONE guy and he was not
            intimidating anyone, it has been to trial so stop lying or can’t you
            help being a racist POS?

            To which I argued back that it had not been to trial as you say because the DOJ refuses to prosecute minorities for voter intimidation or civil rights violations. I named lawyers at the DOJ who have resigned because if it, and sited unbiased websites that have documented the story.

            You countered with even less facts and more names. Perhaps it is you who is not fooling anyone on this website as to a flimsy cover. I never once brought up fox news, or Stormfront, or any KKK websites. But, please, continue to make your case on how I (someone you have never met) am a racist, and I am a liar (though you have not offered a single bit of data to prove I lied about anything, despite my providing nothing but solid data to prove I’m not. Please…..continue to call names and deflect….its all you have at this point.

            “In the first week of January, the Justice Department filed a civil
            lawsuit against the New Black Panther Party and three of its members”

            “Abigail Thernstrom, a commission member and a senior fellow at the
            conservative Manhattan Institute, called it “small potatoes” and said
            conservatives should pursue more important issues against the Obama
            administration. The case, she pointed out, invokes a narrow and rarely
            used provision of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which has been used
            successfully to prosecute only three times since its passage.

            “If you want to criticize [Attorney General] Eric Holder, there are lots of grounds on which to criticize him,” she said. “Why waste your breath on this one?”

            Thernstrom said that she did not find Adams’s testimony convincing and
            that the facts of the case raised doubts in her mind, noting that the
            Black Panthers were standing in front of a majority-black precinct that had voted overwhelmingly for Democrats in previous elections — not a prime spot for intimidating white voters.”

            It was all republican judges appointed by BUSH that dropped it, it was 2008, the first week of January when this started, before Obama even took office so he could not have appointed the judges you illiterate gint

            The man and it was only one man, did go to trial, TWICE,the second time it sought only an injunction barring him from displaying a weapon
            within 100 feet of a Philadelphia polling place for the next three
            years—action that’s already illegal under existing law.

            If you read anything beside white supremacists websites then you would know this but since you don’t the only logical conclusion as to where you got your misinformation is that you are a racist who only uses racist sources of information.

            All of my assertions still stand, you are a liar and a racist so don’t try to deny it.

          • GeorgeW148 September 23rd, 2014 at 8:40 am

            Are you 9 years old? I have cited my source, and given legitimate reasons for my position…yet, you continue to act like a child and call names. The entire incident is highly debatable on both sides of the argument yet, you must be hateful without cause. Grow up junior. Now, all you have is the opinion of one person (Therstrom) who based her entire assessment on the fact that she didn’t find Adams believable. Read this:

            Hans A. von Spakovsky stated that internal e-mails from the Department of Justice released under a Freedom of Information Act request show that political appointees were “intimately involved” in the decision to drop the case, including former deputy attorney general David Ogden, Associate Attorney General Thomas Perrelli and attorney general Eric Holder, and that Perez may have committed perjury by denying this in his testimony before the Civil Rights Commission.[11]

            In October 2010, a draft report from the Civil Rights Commission was posted on the political website TPM Muckraker, (A liberal blog site) stating that political officials had been extensively involved in the decision to dismiss the case, and that the Department of Justice had attempted to conceal their involvement.[12] Civil Rights Commission chairman Gerald A. Reynolds confirmed that the draft was authentic, but said that it was not the most current version of the draft, and declined to immediately release the newest version or describe what revisions had been made to it.[13] The Justice Department denied the allegations in the report.[12]

            In July 2012, Judge Reggie Walton dismissed the Justice Department’s denial, finding that political appointees did interfere with prosecution of the New Black Panther Party.

            For the record, Judge Reggie Walton is an African American. So, a liberal blog reports political appointees interfered with and thwarted the investigation, an African American Judge confirms it, but…..feel free to call me a racist and a liar again… if your opinion is swaying my own feeling of self-worth. I have made my case, stated my opinion and backed it up with researched unbiased documentation. I’m done with this….feel free to get the last word, but trust me…it don’t matter…..I take things from the source and brother… are not a source I will ever read again.

    If I lived in that district, I would show up at the polling place wearing a t-shirt inscribed as follows, carrying my firearm in compliance with any and all applicable laws:



    • Heinz Doofenshmirtz September 21st, 2014 at 4:43 pm

      yeah, grab a gun and play right into their hands.

      • arc99 September 21st, 2014 at 6:08 pm

        yeah grab a gun legally and show them that the days of black folks being intimidated by right wing BS are long gone. if that is playing into their hands, then so be it.

        • Naithom September 22nd, 2014 at 12:25 pm

          While I understand your frustration, may I remind you that we have police in this country who will shoot a man in the back for picking up a toy gun in a store yet do nothing to a white man making threatening remarks while brandishing a firearm in front of a school. Please, react effectively but safely.

  28. elaine stenzel September 21st, 2014 at 5:55 pm

    get your phones out democrats ,if being intimidated start taking pictures,of course,first tell them to smile.and than call the police and federal agents.

    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 September 24th, 2014 at 11:41 am

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

    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?”

    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.
