Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)- In 2008, union thugs and members of the New Black Panthers showed up at certain polling places in Ohio and Philadelphia to intimidate Republican voters.
To be clear, they didn't say they were there for that reason. Rather, they said they were there to be sure everyone got to vote (wink, wink, nod, nod.)
Members of the New Black Panthers plan to be in Philly again today for the same reasons, ubiquitously, and union thugs will be joining them where possible.
Enter Retired Navy Captain Benjamin Brink, who is sending out “former and retired Special Forces and SEALS” to balance out the presence of the union thugs and New Black Panthers in Philly and elsewhere. Brink's goal is to be sure Romney supporters aren't intimidated into leaving the polls without voting, and to accomplish it, his slogan is “Get Out the Vet.”
IMPORTANT: Brink makes it clear that the Special Forces and SEALS are not being sent to engage “intimidators” but to observe and report voter intimidation by Obama's thugs. In this way, those taking part in Brink's “Get Out the Vet” will be able to aide police and other officials on the ground whose personnel are simply spread too thin.
Here's the bottom line: Voters who may have otherwise been intimidated by union thugs or the presence of the New Black Panthers will certainly be encouraged when they see their polls flanked by heroes of the U.S. military: heroes driven not by the revenge Obama can't quit talking about, but by “Love of Country.”
God bless Benjamin Brink and the Special Forces and SEALS that stand with him today.
