Skip to comments.U.S. Civil Rights Commission hearing erupts in shouting

Washington (CNN) -- Members of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission shouted at each other Friday over the Justice Department's decision to drop most of the charges in a 2008 incident in which black militants confronted voters at a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, polling place, leading to charges of voter intimidation.
Conservative commission members accused the Justice Department of "stonewalling" the commission's investigation into the dismissal, and called a Justice Department's response to requests for information "breathtaking and insulting." A liberal commission member, in turn, dismissed those complaints as the "last gasps of a conservative majority of this commission."
At the end of the fractious hour-long debate, no minds appeared to be changed. But one liberal member sided with the conservative majority in agreeing to recommend that Congress give the commission more power when investigating Justice Department matters in the future.
In a letter this week to the commission, Perez again said the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division is "firmly committed to the evenhanded application of the law, without regard to the race of the victims or perpetrators." He does not believe Coates "is the appropriate witness to testify regarding current Division policies," he said.
That drew a strong response from commission conservatives.
"They, by virtue of this letter, gave us their back hand," said commissioner Peter Kirsanow. "This is contemptuous of this particular process," he said.

It is only a matter of time before these animals turn on us and BITE.
The time to put them down like the rabid dogs they are is at hand.
These ‘post-racial relations’ the media were talking about after the Messiah’s election have stepped back over a hundred years. Only this time, the oppressors are black.
Judicial tyranny in action.
Civil Rights inaction.
Doesn't sound very 'civil' to me!!
Its a dog and pony show..just like ethics committee
The Civil War is coming................
I wonder if this turd bird even realizes that he admitted on record it is not about justice at all, it is about raw political power.
What they've sown, they shall reap.
In most cases I’d agree but the conservatives hold a 6 to 2 advantage on the panel.
The panel is supposed to be balanced but under the Bush Admin two of the Repubs changed to Independents when two Dems left and Bush appointed two more Repubs. It was technically legal. :)
Seems to me that the DOJ and the civil rights division have set a precedent here and if White people happen to be wearing Pillow cases on their heads and carrying nooses at polling places, shouting we don’t like to be ruled by the black man then that would be equal justice under the law.
The question is why would it have to come to this for the idiots on the left to see the result of their actions?
Pack heavy, 24/7
Translation: Don't worry, you won't have to listen them after the gas chamber door shuts.
One 1911 A1. One .380 back up.
Same to you FRiend !
Yep, that’s the reason this fiasco hasn’t gone away.
Voter intimidation was so blatant and there was video of these morons in front of the polling place clearly in violation of the voter rights act.
Then along comes Holder and his appointed thugs and basically dismiss it after which one his appointees tells a room full of DOJ lawyers they won’t enforce intimidation cases if those intimidated aren’t minorities.
Holder and his thugs are not fooling anyone.
Part of me is shocked, part of me isn’t.
Where are these glorious Republican candidates who we’re supposed to be supporting in ‘12?
Oh yeah, hiding so as not to be seen defending White people.
0bama’s DOJ is a pure political arm. They are not interested in justice.
Great, civil rights is a pigmented issue. Who knew white people have no civil rights. One less thing. Thanks Eric.
You summed it up nicely, they ignore any law Obama or his handler choose to.
They're biting us NOW!
It seems that things will get heated once Conservatives take over Congress. The left will be exposed and shining the lights will continue to bring out the leftist kooks. From the little I saw on tv the yelling turned very ugly.
Translating the liberal member’s comment, “We won.”
And we practice.
Yes, I saw two clips on Megyn Kelly’s show and it was ugly, the Dem Commissioner Yaki(?) was out of control.
Note to self: More government “jobs” that need to be eliminated. Wow, there’s so much of government I could slash if somebody would just give me the keys for a day.
>> Its a dog and pony show..just like ethics committee
The apathy is justified.
>> Dem Commissioner Yaki(?) was out of control.
Given the name, political association, and title, I’m not surprised...
With this crowd, everything is about race, and the strategy may work, given that most members of non-white groups seem receptive to their racial message.
If we can get back the House, let’s hope our side subpoenas all the creeps involved to a full scale congressional investigation.
heh heh heh
Yep, it was the arm waiving, hand gesturing spittle flying type out of control. :)
I sure wouldn’t try to make an argument against that right now. Everything Obama and thugs are doing now it seems the race card comes out.
You guys can’t fight in here, this is the race war room.
LOL! Good one.
Some animals are more equal than others.
-the barn, ‘Animal Farm’
Grab ankles and bend over. This corrupt administration ain’t done yet. We’s got a lot more payin’ to do for slavery! They know we’ll just bow down in submission and say “yes massa.”
Anybody have a youtube link?
I’ve been looking on Fox and you tube and haven’t found one as yet, I’ll ping you if I do
Smells like pre-Civil War stuff with the abolutionists vs the slavers, with the slavers being represented as the anti-Lincoln obuma and his democrat fascists.
King obuma “The Stupid” probably doesn’t realize that Joshua Chamberlain left the Northeast 100 years ago, and he ain’t coming back.
King obuma’s Fat Momma Welfare Division won’t hack it on the battlefield.
“Naturally DOJ won’t let Christopher Coates tesitfy before the USCCR, he’d make Holder and Perez out to be the liars they are.”
Exactly right. We need a patriot to publicly stand before the Lincoln Memorial and challenge the cowards obuma and holder to have a debate about race. Broadcast live. On every radio and TV station.
Where is our John Adams, our Tom Paine and our Thomas Jefferson? I bet we can find a few. Thomas Sowell comes to mind...
AMEN to that!!! :)
Between you, me and the fencepost, king obuma is the anti-Lincoln, trying to reinstitute slavery.
He is the most despicable character to ever walk American soil.
Let me to ask you this:
Should we challenge the assorted secret service agents and ask why they’re loving and protecting obuma?
These secret service pigs are protecting obuma because either they agree with obuma’s commie agenda or they’re merceneraries, in it for the cash.
Help me out and give me your opinion...
these people act just like they do on the City Council in my hometown of Jackson Mississippi
normally that is more than enough to win for any candidate who nabs the white vote
now it's estimated to take 57%
and will rise if amnesty takes root
you can thank more and more minorities streaming in even the legal ones and having more and more babies than whites since the 70s now
the chickens have now come home to roost and America becomes a non white majority nation much like Brasil which is a major goal for progressives...because then they have a lock on power
i doubt it can be stopped peacefully and it will likely be horrible for anyone who will have to endure it....i am very pessimistic for my descendents
the only immigrant groups I know who ape majority "white" vote are Vietnamese and Sikhs...younger Cubans are less likely to support our values than their folks were
latinos vote left for the most part since they self identitfy as minorities...in the case of Amerindian ones...racial minorities
the outlook for protestant latinos is a little better but they are a real minority
Well said...The USCCR is empowered by law as a commission to oversee that every person in the country is not deprived of their civil rights.
This current fiasco is the result of a Justice Dept trying to dismiss an obvious case of voter intimidation that probably 80% of the people in this country know to be true.
This commission only has eight people on it and they don’t seem to be able to do their job because of their political beliefs. Think what a monumental problem the Justice Dept has with the hundreds and probably thousands they have when being run by the likes of Holder and his appointed thugs.
ABC has a video up. Starts to heat up at 1:15. This Dem, Yaki is trying to make out that Chris Adams is just a trouble maker and possibly a liar.
Thank you. I’ll look at that the next time I’m near some high speed access.
