DOJ Attorney Quits Over Black Panther Stonewall
National Review ^ | 05/19/10 11:00 AM

Posted on 05/19/2010 11:05:50 AM PDT by Behind Liberal Lines

A trial attorney with the Department of Justice’s Voting Rights Section has resigned, citing concerns about the government’s refusal to prosecute a case involving voter intimidation by the New Black Panther Party.

A letter of resignation from a former Justice Department employee makes clear DOJ has refused to allow attorneys in the Voting Rights Section to testify before the congressionally-chartered bipartisan U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, despite subpoenas that could result in their being held in contempt.

You can add this to the list of the many Congressional hearings that will take place after the GOP takes back the House this fall. I'm interested in getting to the bottom of this, as well as the Gerald Walpin firing.

It's good to see individuals in the public sector that are passionate about their work. It's a shame to see him quit over this, though it's entirely understandable. His position, as of now, is going to be filled by some rabid moonbat with a ‘Bush’ underneath their beds, hiding in their closets, and causing global warming.

This should be a major story in the MSM but we all know it won’t be. It’s downright scary that we have a DOJ that won’t pursue this case. Unbelievable. But I bet 90% of the general population doesn’t know a thing about this case.

I’m wondering who this attorney is and will they be able to come forward? They may have some rules which prevent them from commenting on this case. If not then this attorney should come forward and present the issues for the public. They should make the talk show circuit. They owe the public an accounting. That’s what they are paid for.

This only confirms the criminality of Obama and Holder. Obstructing justice by the U. S. Justice Department seems to me like an indictable offence.

As pointed out by a previous poster, nothing will happen on this until the Democrats loose their control of government. It is too bad, but when Republicans regain control they will have to watched to make sure that they don’t just let this go. Unfortunately they can’t be trusted either.

A trial attorney with the Department of Justice’s Voting Rights Section has resigned, citing concerns about the government’s refusal to prosecute a case involving voter intimidation by the New Black Panther Party.

When I saw the headline, I thought I was going to read about a resignation that had been *requested*, you know, someone on the shady side of things got caught (since this whole Black Panther no prosecute is such a sham) -- I am heartened to read that it is just the opposite. Hopefully this is not the last we hear from this attorney.

I certainly wouldn’t have heard about it if my girlfriend wasn’t from Philly.

When she told me about it, I think my response was something like, “I’d love to see them try that here in the South.” I cannot believe this sort of thing is tolerated anywhere in the country.

The following is no joke:

DOJ issued a ruling in this case. As a result, the club-weilding Black Panther thug cannot carry a weapon at a polling place... until 2012!

No, I'm not kidding. You cannot make this stuff up.

Eric Holder is a coward on racial issues.

Eric Holder, Obama, Wright, Ayers, the New Black Panther Party, many others around him, are all of the same political ilk.

“Although it [The New Black Panther Party] says it sees capitalism as the fundamental problem with the world and “revolution” as the solution, the new party does not draw its influences from Marxism or Maoism as the original party did. Instead, in a carefully-worded, roundabout form of ethnic nationalism,[8] they say that Marx based his ideology and teachings on indigenous African cultures, and that the NBPP therefore need not look to Marxism or Maoism as a basis for their program, but can look to ideologies that stem directly from those African origins.”

the GOP had better not give up on this and the next admin had better do an investigation into why these racist got away with this and maybe if they can press charges against them.

Same as this admin not giving details on the ft hood shooting.

this is the most secret admin for some time , crap they don;t even give a major press conference since last year and refuses today to only have two question at him, and the other day he wouldn’t give any answers even when he signs the press freedom

For you lefty’s out there trolling then ask yourself this,If Bush or the next GOP president acted like you messiah would you just be as happy as you are now and would you defend them .
If you are not mad at this admin but would be at the republican admin then you’re nothing but hypocrites and it;s people like you which have let Govts in and get away with this crap.

Re: “Eric Holder is a coward on racial issues.”

Why are you quoting me on that comment? I didn't say that.

Anyway, it's not about race so much as political ideology. All of these people are communists. The Black Panther Party advocate "Black Liberation". That is what Obama's pastor of 20+ years preached from the pulpit. "Liberation" theology was concocted by communists in order to advance the revolutionary communist agenda via various bogus religions (including Wright's 'church' and the so-called "Nation of Islam")

In your view, being a "negro" means one has to defend black communist radicals such as the New Black Panther Party? Or defend blacks who've obviously broken the law by intimidating voters with night sticks and verbal abuse.

Obama's Church: Gospel of Hate
Kathy Shaidle, FrontPageMag.com
Monday, April 07, 2008

In March of 2007, FOX News host Sean Hannity had engaged Obama’s pastor in a heated interview about his Church’s teachings. For many viewers, the ensuing shouting match was their first exposure to "Black Liberation Theology"...

Like the pro-communist Liberation Theology that swept Central America in the 1980s and was repeatedly condemned by Pope John Paul II, Black Liberation Theology combines warmed-over 1960s vintage Marxism with carefully distorted biblical passages. However, in contrast to traditional Marxism, it emphasizes race rather than class. The Christian notion of "salvation" in the afterlife is superseded by "liberation" on earth, courtesy of the establishment of a socialist utopia.

Catholics for Marx [Liberation Theology]
By Fr. Robert Sirico
FrontPageMagazine.com | Thursday, June 03, 2004

In the days when the Superpowers were locked in a Cold War, Latin America seethed with revolution, and millions lived behind an iron curtain, a group of theologians concocted a novel idea within the history of Christianity. They proposed to combine the teachings of Jesus with the teachings of Marx as a way of justifying violent revolution to overthrow the economics of capitalism.

The Gospels were re-rendered not as doctrine impacting on the human soul but rather as windows into the historical dialectic of class struggle. These "liberation theologians" saw every biblical criticism of the rich as a mandate to expropriate the expropriating owners of capital, and every expression of compassion for the poor as a call for an uprising by the proletarian class of peasants and workers.

LOL...I came into this thread and stumbled across that graphic...made me feel like a Freeper Celebrity!

I watched the video that was linked showing the Fox news shots, and it is just unbelievable. We joke that liberals seem to forget that there are such things as tape recorders and cameras, and this dumb POS is acting like he knew nothing about the guy dressed just like him who had been standing next to him before the police escorted him away.

LOL...I think he said something like “I don’t know anything about anyone with a nightstick, you just makin this stuff up...”
