Fox News radio host Todd Starnes praised Dixville Notch, New Hampshire, for exemplifying the best of the country’s electoral process. Among its virtues, there are no Black Panthers in the tiny, rural town; just "good American folks." Watch:
Starnes: I love this; this is what America is all about. Like you said, no hanging chads, we didn’t see any Black Panthers with baseball bats. These were good American folks going to do their patriotic duty and I think it’s fantastic; Dixville Notch is just a great little place.
Starnes is referring to the report, endlessly hyped by the conservative media and especially Fox News, that the New Black Panthers intimidated voters in 2008 at a Philadelphia polling center and that the Obama administration dropped the case. Actually, it was the Bush administration that did so for lack of compelling evidence. Not that that would stop Starnes from speaking in race-based code. Regarding Dixville Notch, Talking Points Memo reports that there are no African-Americans living there.
