Racist Asshats Harassing Voters - Is That Okay...?

The, while reporting on election glitches in some states, had an interesting snippet highlighting the less savory side of US politics.

In Arizona, Roy Warden -- an anti-immigration activist with the Minutemen -- and a handful of supporters staked out a precinct in the city of South Tucson and questioned Latino voters as they entered the polls to determine if they spoke English.

Armed with a 9mm Glock automatic strapped to his side, Warden said he planned to photograph as many Latino voters entering polls at as many as 20 precincts in an effort to identify illegal immigrants and felons.

Warden heckled Democratic congressman Raul Grijalva as he walked into the precinct to cast his ballot. Grijalva ignored Warden, saying such harassment "hasn't been a deterrence to voters -- it's just been a nuisance."
A nuisance?!?!?!

Considering Warden is the same 10 lbs of shit in a 5 lb bag that was in the news back in May for sending an email to a human rights activist with the subject line "Warden to Isabel Garcia: I will blow your freaking head off!", the same piece of trash who descended on a Cinco de Mayo celebration in a Tucson park, armed again, calling celebrants "Mexican invaders" and spouting "We will not permit you, the ignorant, the savage, the unwashed, to overrun us, as happened in Rome. ... Land must be paid for in blood. If any invader tries to take this land from us, we will wash this land and nurture our soil with oceans of their blood!", I'd say this would constitute more than just a nuisance.

Do we have to arm ourselves now to visit the polls for fear of gun toting kooks interfering with our right to vote? One more reason for mail in ballots if you ask me.

Seriously though, is this crap okay? This isn't freedom of speach. Accosting people on their way to the polls is interfering with the electoral process. It's politics through fear and intimidation. It's fucking terrorism is what it is.

From Wikipedia:

Terrorism is a term used to describe violence or other harmful acts committed (or threatened) against civilians by groups or persons for political, nationalist, or religious goals.
Roy Warden, and the rest of these extremists are terrorists plain and simple. Why is George W's War of Terror skipping over the groups closer to home that use the threat of violence as a political tool...?

This shit isn't okay. Roy, I'd rather have 1000 illegals in this country than even 1 of you.

this is different from all the imiigrants marching and demanding rights, and chanting the la rasa slogans? all for the race, nothing for the others.

welcome to free speech, as long as you are not touched, its legal. just like the god hates fags guy that shows up at funerals.

if you don't like free speech, there are countries that don't have it you can move to.

Affecting political goals through fear and intimidation is terrorism, not free speach. Terrorism is illegal. Same deal with death threats. They're against the law, as in not covered by free speach. Stand on a soapbox and spout all you want, but attempt to bar access to the polls to registered voters and you should be locked up.

Listen up, Pendejos!

If you are an illegal alien, be afraid, be very afraid of la chupacabra, and la migra, because like Warden, The Notorious Mexican Flag Burner, they will come in the night to kick your asses back to Mexico.

Comprende? The American Rule of Law is coming to get you!
