I wanted to update my readers about a case of voter intimidation by a group of black racists called “The New Black Panthers”. They intimidated white voters in Philadelphia during the 2008 election, by carrying weapons in front of a polling place. The Obama administration dropped the charges against them.
Here’s some of the raw video:
And here’s some eyewitness testimony:
Fox News reports on the original story and the latest development – an ex-DOJ official has come forward to explain what really happened behind the scenes.
J. Christian Adams, testifying Tuesday before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, said that “over and over and over again,” the department showed “hostility” toward those cases. He described the Black Panther case as one example of that — he defended the legitimacy of the suit and said his “blood boiled” when he heard a Justice official claim the case wasn’t solid.”It is false,” Adams said of the claim.
“We abetted wrongdoing and abandoned law-abiding citizens,” he later testified.
The department abandoned the New Black Panther case last year. It stemmed from an incident on Election Day in 2008 in Philadelphia, where members of the party were videotaped in front of a polling place, dressed in military-style uniforms and allegedly hurling racial slurs while one brandished a night stick.
[…]Adams has described the case as open-and-shut and said Tuesday that it was a “very low moment” to hear Perez make that claim.
But he described the department’s hostility toward that and other cases involving black defendants as “pervasive.” Adams cited hostility in the department toward a 2007 voting rights case against a black official in Mississippi who was accused of trying to intimidate voters. Adams said that when the Black Panther case came up, he heard officials in the department say it was “no big deal” and “media-generated” and point to “Fox News” as the source.
I thought it might help my readers if I posted these videos of Megyn Kelly debating the head of the New Black Panthers, so you can see how they respond to the charges yourself. After all, it’s good to hear both sides.
Why would the Department of Justice side with the New Black Panthers against voters who just want to exercise their right to vote? This whole thing reminds me a lot of ACORN and the voter fraud problems they’ve been having. Obama used to work for ACORN, and the head of ACORN endorsed Obama.
Voter intimidation. Voter fraud. Barack Obama.
