No Proof in New Black Panther Case: Official
Says No Evidence Supports Charges by Right-Wingers That Obama Admin. Refuses to Prosecute Blacks for Breaking Vote Laws
By David S Morgan
WASHINGTON, July 25, 2010
(CBS) A Bush appointee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights denounced allegations by some pundits that the Justice Department is refusing to pursue a voting rights case against members of the New Black Panther Party because of race, and suggested that the charges being made by right-wing figures are politically motivated.
Conservative broadcasters and websites have claimed that the Obama administration is dropping prosecution of New Black Panther activists who were videotaped outside a Philadelphia polling station on Election Day 2008, making intimidating remarks; one man was carrying a nightstick.
Earlier this month former Justice Department lawyer and Republican activist J. Christian Adams testified to the commission that senior officials in the department are not applying voting rights laws in a race-neutral way, by refusing to press charges against African Americans on these issues.
A recent Media Matters investigation has debunked charges that the Obama administration withdrew criminal charges against the Panthers (in fact, the Bush administration decided not to pursue criminal charges, with Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez testifying that the Bush Justice Department "determined that the facts did not constitute a prosecutable violation of the criminal statutes"; a civil lawsuit was filed in the last days of the Bush administration, and a judgment won by the Obama Justice Department in May 2009).

Perhaps Abigail will see things differently once the Metamucil kicks in.
Ok then...I guess then that the Tea Party can station 2 jack booted thugs at every white predominated voting location and all will be sweetness and light?
So we didn’t see the New Black Panthers waving their batons, dressed in para military garb menacing people at the polling place.
Silly us, we must have been hallucinating.
Remember when Communists took over the entertainment industry (Hollywood) and many government offices, and even though McCarthy proved it, the communists kept insisting there was no such thing as communists?
Were they 'menacing' (exactly what is that, btw?) one particular race of people, or was it just random?
I hope someone gives this guy a dirt nap.
CBS=Obama Defense Network
This lady is a joke.

(What it would say if the ‘wannabe ruling elite’ in our media actually told the truth)
(Under new ORDERS, the JUSTICE DEPARTMENT will no longer accept any Evidence in cases brought by Right-Wingers)
Bush appointee, makes sense.
Why would Obama want riots at the polls , one might ask?
Its a pan to destabilize the electoral process. And you are seeing only a small part of a larger plan to do just that.
Wait until ethnic voters are challenged for ID and citizenship papers, watch what happens then.
Is that not where the phrase, “hoisted by their own petard” comes from?
You wouldn’t even have to say a word.
It wouldn’t be 10 minutes and your azz would be in jail.
BTW, isn’t that guy the same guy saying something on tape about killing cracker babies?
Wait....didn’t some dept. or commission or something already find them guilty? It was the DOJ that dropped it.
Shirley Sherrods first interviewer. MM is one of the most vile, pathetic propaganda sites on the web. EVERYone of their debunkings can be easily re-debunked by a fifth grader.
But I guess they're playing to thier readers, like SeeBS, who are second grade level intellect, at best
Come November we will not be intimidated, come November 2012 if he chooses to run again we will not be intimidated.
