Ugly in any color

Outrageous polling-place thuggery is intolerable

  • Follow Editorials

If the U.S. Department of Justice had ahold of raging white racists who were trying to intimidate black voters into not voting -- and saying that blacks, and in particular black babies, need to be killed -- what do you suppose would or should happen?

Probably not what happened in the case of the "New Black Panther Party" thugs in the Philadelphia voter intimidation case, that's for sure.

The department walked away from the case.

Walked away from blatant racism and voter tampering.

Reportedly because the suspects are black.

That's the explosive allegation by a former Department of Justice attorney, J. Christian Adams. He told the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights this past week that not only did his office walk away from the New Black Panther case because of race, but that department higher-ups had told attorneys in the civil rights division not to prosecute any cases involving black defendants and white victims.

In short, what's being alleged here is a rampantly racist U.S. Department of Justice.

To its credit, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights is investigating -- even though the alleged victims of the 2008 precinct intimidation are white.

But where is the Obama administration? Wasn't this supposed to be a post-racial presidency?

And where are the media? What if the suspects had been white and the defendants black? Wouldn't it have been the lead news item if 1) militant whites had been trying to stop blacks from voting and 2) the U.S. Department of Justice turned a blind eye toward it?

The answer, of course, is yes.

The simple truth is, no voter intimidation or fraud, especially race-based, should be tolerated in this country -- no matter the race of the parties involved.

One of the suspects that the Department of Justice is letting off scot-free was once filmed shouting on the street, "You want freedom? You're gonna have to kill some crackers! You're gonna have to kill some of their babies! I hate white people -- all of them! Every last iota of a cracker. I hate 'em."

How long would whites in paramilitary-style fatigues wielding nightsticks be allowed to patrol outside voting precincts? Why should such behavior by any race be tolerated?

This administration has some explaining to do.

obama has legalized the harassment and threatening of "cracker" voters in the November elections. Just as Japan woke the sleeping giant, obama will awaken it again. Lets de-fang and de-claw this monster in November. America and liberty is at stake once again.

Robert Gibbs, Obama's press

Robert Gibbs, Obama's press secretary, when questioned at a press briefing, said he is unaware of any charges that the Justice Dept has instructed attorneys not to pursue these cases. It is getting to be so much like fantasy land around there that if Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Lala and Poo had walked out I wouldn't have been surprised one bit.

obama and his administration

obama and his administration and his "justice" department and all politicos, hangers on and cronies are racist in everything they do and in every unguarded comment they make. Who's surprised at the orders given to the "justice" department?
Is anyone surprised that "politically correct" is code for anti-white, anti-capitalism, anti-American?
Is anyone surprised that a campaign based on racism is followed by a racist regime? Let's do what wasn't done before the 2008 election -- let's evaluate the actions of this Marxist, because his words are cheap and meaningless.
All of this falls under the general heading of "Why This Diversity Experiment Mistake Shouldn't Happen Again".

"Manson had been predicting

"Manson had been predicting racial war for some time before he used the term Helter Skelter. His first use of the term was at a gathering of the Family on New Year's Eve 1968. This took place at the Family's base at Myers Ranch, near California's Death Valley.

In its final form, which was reached by mid-February 1969, the scenario had Manson as not only the war's ultimate beneficiary but its musical cause. He and the Family would create an album with songs whose messages concerning the war would be as subtle as those he had heard in songs of The Beatles. More than merely foretell the conflict, this would trigger it; for, in instructing "the young love,America's white youth, to join the Family, it would draw the young, white female hippies out of San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury Black men, thus deprived of the white women whom the political changes of the 1960s had made sexually available to them, would be without an outlet for their frustrations and would lash out in violent crimes against whites A resultant murderous rampage against blacks by frightened whites would then be exploited by militant blacks to provoke an internecine war of near-extermination between racist and non-racist whites over blacks' treatment. Then the militant blacks would arise to sneakily finish off the few whites they would know to have survived; indeed, they would kill off all non-blacks.

In this holocaust, the members of the enlarged Family would have little to fear; they would wait out the war in a secret city that was underneath Death Valley that they would reach through a hole in the ground. As the only actual remaining whites upon the race war's true conclusion, they would emerge from underground to rule the now-satisfied blacks, who, as the vision went, would be incapable of running the world; Manson "would scratch [the black man's] fuzzy head and kick him in the butt and tell him to go pick the cotton and go be a good ..... "
Wow I had heard of Mansons "vision"..but never took the time to really read the story.

The Augusta Chronicle

The Augusta Chronicle Editorial Staff never lets facts get in the way of a story which can increase racial tensions.

http://article.nationalreview.com/437619/the-new-black-panther-casebr-a-...

A small excerpt:

In the 45 years since the act was passed, there have been a total of three successful prosecutions. The incident involved only two Panthers at a single majority-black precinct in Philadelphia. So far — after months of hearings, testimony and investigation — no one has produced actual evidence that any voters were too scared to cast their ballots. Too much overheated rhetoric filled with insinuations and unsubstantiated charges has been devoted to this case.

The reason that this

The reason that this violation is not being prosecuted is obvious, and just as obvious is the Obama-Holder suit against Arizona. The flood of fools who supported Prezbojangles in 2008 have now dissipated and sobered up, the U.S.A. can rest easy in the knowledge that if a bunch of thugs with weapons...batons, clubs, etc........assemble around the poles in 2010 and 2012, they will be removed from the scene by patriots who will call their obvious bluff, and illustrate to the world that they are nothing but loud-mouth thugs.........alligator mouth with a lizard body....and send them back to where they belong.

@afadel
And since when has lack of evidence that people were too scared to vote made one iota of evidence when the roles were reversed. Besides, there was testimony in this case of several people turning away and not voting out of fear. I also read that they dropped the charges after getting a promise from the BP not to do it again until 2012, just in time for Obama's re-election. I guess we will see how all this effects the 2010 election, and remember, the position of this administration is states can not enforce federal law.

It's like the James Brown

It's like the James Brown song "Payback". Obama still has over 90% support from blacks. Why??? Because he's black. No one in their right mind would tell you that Obama is doing a good job as President. As long as he continues to provide programs that mainly blacks benefit from and Obama/Holder decline to prosecute black radicals he is doing what blacks want him to do. PAYBACK!!!!

Haha, not only that, I also know the Chunky Cheese show by heart after having to sit there for 3 hours for a team party two years in a row. But I'm kind of concerned that you knew they were the Teletubbies.

Seriously, I don't think Obama is racist, but his underlings believe they will ingratiate themselves to him if they do things like this...stupid as they are.

apex24, it is not the classic James Brown song "The Big Payback" that you should be thinking of. I think a better song for this story is, "Say it loud, 'I'm Black and I'l PROUD!'..."

Just my opinion....

Afadel-The law requiring

Afadel-The law requiring photo ID's in Georgia is challanged all the time-DISPITE THE FACT THAT NOT ONE PERSON CAN BE FOUND WHO WAS DENIED THE OPPERUNITY TO VOTE Based on that law. The Black Panters missed a hearing and had defaulted and would have been found guilty because of the default. It was a slam dunk case. www.foxnews.com/.../justice-attorney-set-testify-new-black-panther-case/

WHAT DID YOU EXPECT PEOPLE?

WHAT DID YOU EXPECT PEOPLE? You elected a man who has been a racist his entire life; who only associated with other racists, socialists, communists, terrorist, and people, in general, who hate white people, this country, and/or both. You ask for it, you got it....Obama.
