White supremacy has been an intrinsic part of the GOP since President Nixon and was expanded by President Reagan. Reagan announced his run for president in Neshoba County, Mississippi where civil rights activist were murdered by the KKK:
The Chester County Republican Committee (CCRC) has mounted efforts at the polls to limit black voters several times in the past in Coatesville and Lower Oxford Township, white supremacy hiding behind lawyers.
Terence Farrell was used by the Republican Party as the means to move the Lower Oxford Polling Place from Lincoln University to a tiny room in a building between a major highway and operating railroad to stop black students voting for Barack Obama.
Republicans use black men to promote their racist policies. They used Terence Farrell in 2008. Is Harry Lewis next?
I can still see and hear an elderly black woman walking away from Coatesville’s 5th Ward saying “They won't let me vote."
"On the other hand maybe Republicans WANT to induce violence at some of Pennsylvania's polling places. Case in point:
Early on the General Election Day of 2004 several Republican attorneys from Spring City showed up outside of Coatesville's Fifth Ward (precinct 120). When the polls opened they went inside and I saw elderly black women coming out of the polls saying, "They won't let me vote."
When the Democratic attorney was inside the polling place everything was peaceful. When the Democratic attorney took a break, again people were walking out saying they won't let me vote.
The effect of all that Republican muscle in Coatesville's Fifth Ward was stopping long time voters from voting.
I can't understand why they brought in lawyers from Spring City and why CCRC Chairman Skippy Brion was screaming at a Democratic poll watcher inside the polling place in front of voters but I don't have the mind of a Republican.
But I do think that if the Republicans persisted in stopping long time voters from voting there would have been violent incidents at the Fifth Ward."
