Skip to comments.The New Black Panthers and the White House

The more the Obama administration fights the subpoenas from the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights and denies congressmens requests for answers concerning the inexplicable dismissal of the voter-intimidation case in Philadelphia against the New Black Panther Party (NBPP), the more reasonable people wonder what the administration has to hide. And so it is appropriate now to ask: What did the White House know and when did it know it?
Perhaps the single most important question that the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the White House are refusing to answer in the growing scandal (for the stonewalling and subpoena violations make it a scandal) is which political appointees were involved in the obviously wrongful decision to dismiss the lawsuit a civil suit filed under the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Newly released White House visitor records present strong circumstantial evidence of White House involvement in what should have been an independent and impartial law-enforcement decision.
The facts of the voter-intimidation case have been widely reported. There is even a video of NBPP members outside a polling place; they are dressed in paramilitary uniforms, and one of them is waving a nightstick. Poll watchers also reported that they were hurling racial epithets at elderly voters, some of whom were quite afraid. When the DOJ filed suit last January, the NBPP did not deny the charges, and the veteran trial lawyers were preparing a default judgment and broad injunction. So it is completely inexplicable from a legal point of view why the career lawyers in the Civil Rights Division were suddenly ordered in May to dismiss the lawsuit against the NBPP and all but one defendant.

They are not people who feel the need to justify actions when they can use brute political power to get what they want through. This was just thug professional courtesy.
I thought citizenship was a 10% chance of flushing the Obummer down the political drain. I think the chances of something illegal, unethical, scandalous, etc. are a far greater likelihood.
Remember black panthers using nightsticks at Philly voting booths?
DNC Congress Overwhelmingly Supports Nazi Nightstick Tactics at Voting Booth
I remember. According to the left racism and hate crimes are the exclusive property of White People so they will overlook things like this.
I find it perfectly easy to understand.
Eric Holder and Barrack Obama are looking out for their supporters in the Black Panther movement.
Why is that so hard to understand?
Why does the media and many American people ignore the fact that Holder and Obama are racists of the first water.Racism is alive and well in America and “We won” holds a greater meaning than they will admit.
I guess the question is, why didn’t they throw these few guys under the bus? The were caught red-handed, and there is video evidence for people to see—which many of us saw at the time.
I think the answer is that Eric Holder is powerdrunk and overconfident to the point of stupidity. Conservatives know him for what he is, the the MSM seems to prefer to avoid talking about him.
This case has weakened Holder and has further weakened Obama. Was it worth taking so much damage to keep a couple of dumb thugs out of jail for a few months? If this were a properly run organization like the Mafia, they’d just tell their soldiers to take the hit for being dumb enough to let people take pictures of them doing something so openly stupid.
But I think Obama needs Holder in that job and might have trouble replacing him. And Holder is dumb.
I believe that O actually believed that his nationalizing the auto industry and banks would combine with the nationalization of health care to kindle a massive wave of popular support for Marxist reform.
One caution I would make is that part of Obama's lack of support come from the left who don't like his half measures and "war" policy.
Keep up the pressure on the Obamanation.
Be patient, the AG will be answering questions as soon as a new Congress is seated. I would imagine any snafus related to archiving correspondence incorrectly have already been seen to. Expect the Hillary response: “I do not recollect.”
Such as, "We da massa, you da slaves."
However, this is a general theme of the DNC and really has nothing to do with ethnic origin. They only used a 'black' guy because he could get away with it easier.
