One side says it's imtimidation, the other side says it's protecting the integrity of the polls/polling location.

That's all good and fine until "protecting the integrity of the polls/polling location" basically comes down to "don't let brown people vote".

Let's be real here. Someone point me in the direction of an instance when a polling location was compromised. Would these LARPers have made any difference if such an instance ever happened?

Things I imagine they’re being trained to say:

“You have to show me your ID and proof of residence and citizenship.”

“We’re making a citizen’s arrest on the charge of vote fraud/illegal immigration/sedition.”

IT’S COMING RIGHT FOR US!!!

Let's say they were hired by the Trump campaign. What would the consequences be?

The men’s presence came at a time of tension and fears of unrest at the polls following the Trump campaign’s promise to send “an army” of poll watchers to voting sites. During the first presidential debate, Trump urged supporters to “go into the polls and watch very carefully.”

Gualtieri said that while the men may have made some voters feel uneasy, they had not violated laws.

“All of a sudden two people arrived, they were wearing tan khaki pants, they had on blue polo shirts with a security guard insignia on them,” Gualtieri said. “They were also armed and they were wearing gun belts and they had firearms. That caused some concerns because of the heightened awareness.”

But he added, “Their mere presence does not constitute voter coercion or intimidation. Some people may see these people here and it doesn’t give them a great feeling. On the other side of the coin, it may give others a good feeling, because they feel protected.”

Antifa, BLM, illegals, cannibalistic pedophiles, leftists in general... Just because they don’t pose an actual violent threat doesn’t mean people don’t think they do.

That's odd. I've never heard about any of those groups ever interfering in someone's ability to vote. Even the cannibalistic pedophiles are respectful.

(CNN)President Donald Trump on Saturday night appeared to embrace the actions of supporters in Texas who surrounded a Joe Biden campaign bus in what a Biden campaign official described as an attempt to slow down the bus and run it off the road.

Trump tweeted a video of the caravan surrounding the Biden bus with the caption, "I LOVE TEXAS!"

With a POTUS actively condoning it. Unreal. I never imagined this could happen in my lifetime.

Those people are fucking idiots. That's the type of behavior I'd expect from hormone-laden teenagers, not full grown adults.

He's literally egging on violence against his political opponents. Will it be any surprise when it breaks out on/after Tuesday 11/3?

Apparently a Biden staffer is to blame for the incident according to police. Those poor Trump vehicles were the victim of the crazed Biden staffer.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.newsna ... ating/amp/
San Marcos police said the Biden-Harris bus requested a police escort, but due to excessive traffic officers were not able to catch the bus before it left the jurisdiction. The police department also said it has researched the crash and watched online video. It said the “at-fault vehicle” may be the Biden-Harris staffer’s car, while the “victim” appears to be one of the Trump vehicles.

Coughenour said it had been “troubling” to see officials at “the highest levels of our government” call journalists “enemies of the people.”

“Referring to journalism and the press and media as ‘fake news’ enables people who are vulnerable to suggestions like this, very young people… that this kind of conduct is appropriate,” he said.

Someone turns an RV into a bomb in Nashville. Usually bombs are made to kill people. This RV parks at 1:30 AM, multiple gunshots are heard, the police are called, the RV starts announcing that it’s a bomb in a computerized woman's voice and for people to leave the area. People leave the area and the bomb blows up. They might have found some remains in the debris.

WTF! What is the point? They obviously tried to avoid killing people, which is usually the purpose of bombs. No note or claims from some extremist group? Someone practicing for a future attack? It makes no sense.
