A Job for the New Black Panther Party?


The anti-reformists (the Taliban) have been engaging in violence and threats of violence in the lead up to today’s elections in Afghanistan. They may want to consider hiring the New Black Panther Party to implement their version of a “ballot security program” at the polls. After all, the NBPP is very experienced in the type of voter intimidation that the Taliban are trying to carry out. Best of all from the Taliban’s point of view, since the U.S. is responsible for security in Afghanistan at the polling places, Eric Holder and the Justice Department have already reviewed and approved the type of voter intimidation that the NBPP is so skilled in carrying out. No matter what they do at the polls, the NBPP can use their DOJ “get out of jail free” card with the Pentagon.
