The New York Post reports:
The NYPD says “elevated vigilance” is needed during the upcoming midterm elections, as “hostile rhetoric” and “generalized threats” swirl on online forums, according to an internal memo obtained by The Post.

The memo cited calls on “far-right, ultranationalist, and QAnon extremist forums” for their followers to become “poll challengers” if they witness “fraud” and “cheating” at the polls.

Even Rick Wilson, no socialist him, doesn’t rule out that big corps are deliberately gouging the American people:

Damn, it’s a national cancer. It’s even in NYC. Sheesh. I’m glad I voted by mail early. I was afraid that my local polling place in Minneapolis, which is across the street from me, might be visited by these thugs and goons since I live in a largely minority neighborhood. I hope they don’t shut down voting here or interrupt it. No one needs this shite. And they talk about fair elections. They want everyone to lose. Sad.
The Trump / Republican mantra is essentially the same as Voldemort’s: “Might makes right.” Thuggery is the agency they deploy to make that happen.
