Black Panther Case Dropped Due To Race?

By Wyatt Earp | July 2, 2010

That is what a former Justice Department attorney is claiming. Do you remember this case? During the 2008 election, members of the New Black Panther Party – a group that raises awareness for the perils of angry thugs with small penises – stood outside a Philadelphia polling place and threatened voters with nightsticks. Allegedly, one of these scumbags told a man, “You are about to be ruled by the black man, cracker.” The animals were charged with violating the Voting Rights Act, charges that were almost immediately dismissed by the Obama Administration.

Isn’t that convenient?

A former Justice Department attorney who quit his job to protest the Obama administration’s handling of the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case is accusing Attorney General Eric Holder of dropping the charges for racially motivated reasons. J. Christian Adams, now an attorney in Virginia and a conservative blogger for Pajamas Media, says he and the other Justice Department lawyers working on the case were ordered to dismiss it.

“I mean we were told, ‘Drop the charges against the New Black Panther Party,’” Adams told Fox News, adding that political appointees Loretta King, acting head of the civil rights division, and Steve Rosenbaum, an attorney with the division since 2003, ordered the dismissal.

Well, in the Obama administration’s defense, it’s not like there were photos and video of the crime taking place, right? , never mind.

The Justice Department has defended its move to drop the case, saying it obtained an injunction against one member to keep him away from polling stations while dismissing charges against the others “based on a careful assessment of the facts and the law.”

But Adams told Fox News that politics and race was at play in the dismissal.

“There is a pervasive hostility within the civil rights division at the Justice Department toward these sorts of cases,” Adams told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly.

Adams says the dismissal is a symptom of the Obama administration’s reverse racism and that the Justice Department will not pursue voting rights cases against white victims.

Personally, I absolutely believe Adams. On the basis of the evidence we’ve already seen – and there is undoubtedly more evidence that the Justice Department collected – this is an open and shut case of voter intimidation. So why did the Obama administration drop the charges? I think race was a factor.

Does anyone want to deny Adams’ charges and defend the Justice Department?

    Hmm…..if they were white and had shaved heads and swastika tattoos and stood outside a polling place brandishing crowbars or baseball bats, I wonder if the Justice Dept. would think an injunction against one and a complete dismissal of charges against the other would be sufficient.

    Not that it matters…..Holder’s too busy sending lawyers to Arizona to try and protect 0bama’s undocumented Democrat base….

    Can’t imagine that that would have happened here in the heartland where we have the right to carry and use it. I don’t mean concealed, we carry and there isn’t a pickup without a rack (Not the women). The only reason someone would call the police was to haul away the guilty.

    It’s gonna be a long two and a half years until we’re rid of these clowns. Let’s just hope that whoever replaces them is an improvement.

    IIRC, one of the defendants – the guy with the nightstick? – was and is a Democrat Party poll watcher in Philly, just to add further insult to this injury the rule of law has suffered in this case.

    At some point, some Republican senator or congressman with balls – a rare commodity in Washington, I know – needs to ask both Obama and Eric Holder two blunt questions, point blank, and get their answers on the public record:

    1) Do you think civil rights and hate crimes laws should apply to minorities as well as whites?

    2) And do you think civil rights and hate crimes laws should apply to Democrats as well as everybody else?

    Maybe Sarah Palin should make this case the topic of her next Facebook broadside…

    Fenway – Undocumented Democrats. I laughed out loud when that guy said that to Rush yesterday.

    MUD – In that neighborhood, no one would confront them. The thugs agree with them and the good people would be scared senseless.

    John D – That’s why the administration wants amnesty for illegals. It’s a whole new Democrat base.

    Wes S. – He was a poll watcher, which shows you how corrupt this town – and its Democrats – really are.

    a clear cut case of racial discrimination and voter intimidation/manipulation… holder is an obvious racist and obama has also shown his regime hates “whitey” as well…
    these are teachable moments.
