Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, September 20, 2020

A group of Trump supporters waving campaign flags disrupted the second day of early voting in Fairfax, Va., on Saturday, chanting "four more years" as voters entered a polling location and, at one point, forming a line that voters had to walk around outside the site. ... Election officials said that the group stayed about 100 feet from the entrance to the building and, contrary to posts on social media, were not directly blocking access to the building. But they acknowledged that some voters and polling staff members felt intimidated by what some saw as protesters.

There may be violence at the polls. Will you support that "tactic". Dumbass. You seem awfully eager to destroy civil norms. Are you a closet authoritarian or openly stupid,?

This will only get worse.

These "patriots" never actually loved America to begin with.

Just the thought of them being it.

So they'll gladly do whatever they think necessary to put themselves back on top in their minds.

I hope this doesn't happen at my polling place. I grew up in a big family and punching my sisters was no big deal. Projecting a sibling's face onto the head of some middle-aged female flag-waver who gets in my face will end in an unwelcome surprise--for her...

The point, which flew over the one on top of your head, is that Trumpers are considered by many to be an inherently dangerous lot, and rightly so. The fact that some want to avoid the group responsible for over 90% of domestic terrorism this year makes it problematic for that group to be standing in front of a polling place.

"Stand in the way of someone who is not intimidated and see what happens."

No one should be protesting in front of polling places. On either side. They should be well off to the side or,better banned altogether. We have enough problems without "misunderstandings" that could lead to violent action.

It's better to err on the side of caution in this case. People have a right to vote without other people getting in their face. Nobody's mind is going to be changed on the way in to vote.

This ---- is obvious. A clean vote means no possible intimidation. People shouting in other people's faces could be intimidating to some.

It not up to the posters here to decide who is a ----- or not. Even ------- have the right to vote without being hassled.

Voting need to be protected from protesters who would block access.

Leave it to the GOP to try to shame people going to vote like they shame people going to an abortion clinic.

#105 It's not up to You to decide what's intimidating. Get it. People have the right to vote without being hassled. Nobody's mind is going to be changed by this. What is the purpose of the protest? What good does it serve?

The peace should be kept within sightlines of the polls. Anything else is just veiled intimidation. Protesters can do their thing somewhere else. But why would they? The whole point is to persuade and intimidate potential voters. Not many are likely to be persuaded or intimidated,but what about those who are?

Not exactly.

If it can be suspended at 100 feet, it can be suspended at 100 miles, just like Border Patrol claims jurisdiction over the border 100 miles away from the physical border

Actually it can be a football tailgate party as long as it's more than 100' from the entrance.

Maybe we should get them to increase the distance threshold to a mile or something?

or 5 miles?

how far away should they be?

#130 | Posted by eberly at 2020-09-22 11:40 AM | Reply

Far enough to not be seen by potential voters coming to vote at a particular polling place.

To intimidate voters.

Apparently that's legal, so long as it takes place at least 100 feet from the building.

You guys don't get it. It's not about me or even who's doing the protesting. Nobody should be allowed to do that crap. Either side. It should be prohibited to keep the polls open and unfettered by potential trouble with the vote.

Insult me all you want. This is about both sides being civil and keeping quiet when polling is being done. Protest all you want. SOMEWHERE ELSE. These "protests" are veiled intimidation and you know it. Like cops hanging around the polls is intimidation, same thing.

Just let People ------- VOTE, in peace.

Up until 2019, there was a nationwide federal injunction against the Republican party preventing them from certain activities around and near polling places due to their years of abusive and blatant voter intimidation tactics. Unfortunately, that injunction has now expired so I suspect that we're going to be seeing a lot of this sort of crap and it going to be much more organized and much more specific in terms of where we will be seeing this, like in big cities and anywhere Democrats have the majority.
